AKC Scottish Terrier
DAD: blue brindle weighing 22 lbs
MOM: black brindle weighing 19 lbs
Fantastic litter of AKC registered Scottish Terriers.
Mom- Anna is a Scottie we bred here on our farm. This is her first litter. She has a great personality and has been genetic tested negative for CMO and for VWD III. She is black and she is small for the breed standard at only about 16 lbs.
Dad - Vladimir is our go to brindle male. He is a good boy, great personality and just loves people. 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. Vlad was imported from Russia.
This breed is good with children, being rough and tumble to play hard. At this point I have only gotten a couple of this large litter photographed and online. Elijah is the brindle (striped) boy in the litter. He is also the smallest pup. His ears are up and he is active, eager to please and cute as they come. Emerson is the next pup that is outgoing, black also with a bardene ring on the tail which is common in European Scotties and dad is from Russia. Vladamir throws that bardene ring on the tail to almost all of his puppies. Ethan is the smallest and shyest pup in the litter. He likes to be talked to but takes a few minutes to get used to new situations. This whole litter just loves toys. I rotate a new toy every other day for them. All are current on age appropriate immunizations and have been regularly de-wormed. These are nice, healthy, genetically correct Scottish Terrier puppies that will make wonderful indoor house dogs.
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 - mom Heather 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. A video call is best - you can see the puppy live and almost all breeders now have that technology with FB Messenger, Google Duo or Skype. If they do not then 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.
DAD - Vladimir
