Dog Names Scottish

Scotland is known for many things and dogs are one of them. Scottish names can be used for many breeds of dogs, but two of the most popular breeds, are Scottish Terriers and Scottish Deerhounds. Scottish Terriers are hardy dogs, and like many terriers, were used extensively for going to ground in pursuit of their prey.

The Scotty's nickname is "The Diehard" because of its rugged temperament, and it's tough, smart, determined character, who is always ready for action. It is fearless and feisty and devoted to its family. When left alone, Scotties, and many terriers, are known diggers and barkers. They are well adapted to the cool climate of Scotland, so they have a high tolerance for cold, but not heat.
