AKC Scottish Terrier
DAD: black weighing 18 lbs
MOM: blue brindle weighing 25 lbs
Fantastic litter of AKC registered Scottish Terriers.
Mom- Elsa is one of our Scotties born right here on our farm that we kept back for breeding. She has a great personality and has been genetic tested negative through parentage (we have both of her parents and they have been tested) for CMO and for VWD III. She is black but has just a few brindle stripes in her. She is typical Scottie size of about 18 lbs.
Dad - Vladimir was imported from Russia and is a blue brindle color. He throws lots of color to his puppies just like in this litter. He is a bit bigger than Elsa weighing about 25 lbs. He has a very good attitude and wants to always please. He also listens well and is easy to train. We have genetic tested Vlad for CMO (https://www.stca.biz/index.php/component/content/article?id=336:craniomandibular-osteopathy-cmo-in-the-scottish-terrier-stca-htf-health-series-no-2-) and also for VWD III (https://scottishterrierhealth.com/2013/03/25/von-willebrands-disease/) and was negative for both.
This litter has a lot to offer in size, color and personality. Coleen is a nice wheaten color and is going to be a medium sized girl. The boys are all very similar except that Chip and Craig are both black brindle with a few stripes in their black fur. Chip also has a bardene bingo ring around the base of his tail that really didn't show up well until he was shaved off good. If you let their hair grow they will look black but once you shave them off then they will shock you with how many stripes they have. All the boys are of about the same size and I expect they will mature about 20-25 lbs like their dad. All the pups have good attitudes, are playful, healthy and ready for new homes now. They are current on age appropriate immunizations and have been regularly de-wormed. As you can see - they are working on trying to get their ears up and are in different stages.
As a breed - Scottish Terriers are easy keepers with very little health issues. They require a little grooming - with most people shaving them off every so often to keep them from matting. They are great with children, being large enough to romp and play. They can be prone to allergies or food or environment but typically not many other health issues. They are fantastic little indoor house dogs; wanting their attention but also independent enough to sit on the couch and just lounge not requiring constant human interaction. My personal indoor scottie prefers to stay within 5 feet of me and moves from room to room as I do but she only asks for occasional kisses and petting.
Smart little dogs that are great mousers. Not that hard to potty train with some time and consistency. We use a fenced yard and a doggy door for our Scotties. Typical life expectancy is 10-12 years.
DO NOT BE SCAMMED!!! If you are interested in purchasing a puppy off the internet from ANY breeder - use some common sense. If the deal sounds too good to be true.....it is. As for fraud control please ask your prospective breeder for SOMETHING. I recommend a picture of your name on a piece of paper with the date with the puppy standing next to that picture. If a scammer has stolen a picture he/she will not be able to do that for you because they do not have the puppy. Or references - a legitimate breeder will always be able to provide a reference from another buyer. There are just as many scammers stealing my photos to scam individuals as there are scammers taking innocent client's money. I don't mean to scare anyone. Everyone needs to protect themselves when purchasing anything through the internet.
