Scotties were introduced to America in the early 1890s but it was not until the years between World War I and World War II that the breed became popular. A club was formed in 1900 and a standard written in 1925. The Scottish Terrier was recognized by the United Kennel Club in 1934. By 1936, Scotties were the third most popular breed in the United States. Although they did not permanently stay in fashion, they continue to enjoy a steady popularity with a large segment of the dog-owning public across the world.

Scottish Terriers have won best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show more than any other breed except for the Wire Fox Terrier, a total of nine times.

They are the only breed of dog that has lived in the White House more than three times. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and President George W. Bush have both owned the renowned Scottie Terriers.

Scottish Terriers are a wonderful breed, they are like no other breed. Once you've owned a scottie you will want another one. They are full of themselves, quite the character. Their coat is the crown and glory of the breed. We need to do all we can to preserve this wonderful breed.
