Artist's Description

My Friend’s Scottie Dog Mac. Always in a hurry as he is still a puppy. You try sitting him still to do a photo shoot. Still working on the others. Taken on Sunday 13th April 2008

Scottie history

The Scottie is a short-legged British terrier, one of several wire-coated go-to-ground terriers developed in the Scottish highlands. The origins of these terriers is obscure, but it is fairly certain that they all arose from the same basic stock. Progenitors of the fiery Scottie were sent to France’s monarch by King James I of England in the 16th Century, but as late as 1882, three different terriers were exhibited as Scotch Terriers. These included the Scottie, Cairn, and West Highland White terriers. The Dandie Dinmont had been included earlier, but this dog’s obviously different appearance gained it recognition as a separate breed.

Terriers developed in Britain to hunt vermin that plagued farmers by eating grain, eggs, and poultry. Courageous, scrappy dogs, eager to follow fox or badger into the den, they were built to dig their way in if necessary. They were unfazed by Scottish weather; their wiry outer coats and soft undercoats protected them in harsh climates and rugged terrain.
