About McWilliams’ Scots

We have three Scottish Terriers: Sean Connery, who was born in November of 2015, and sisters Lucy Ricardo and Ethel Mae Mertz, who were born in June of 2016. All of our dogs are fully AKC registered. We live in Birmingham, Alabama. We expect our next litters of scottie puppies in the spring of 2018!

We believe in raising our scotties like members of our family; in fact we call them our fur babies. Temperament is very important to us; our scotties are raised in our home and are encouraged to socialize. Our dogs enjoy going in and outside of our home. We have a fenced-in yard that is adjacent to the woods. Our dogs love running outside and listening to all of the exciting sounds of the woods!

About Scottish Terriers

The Scottish Terrier is a small, compact, short-legged, sturdily-built dog of good bone and substance. His head is long in proportion to his size. He has a hard, wiry, weather-resistant coat and a thick-set, cobby body which is hung between short, heavy legs. These characteristics, joined with his very special keen, piercing, “varminty” expression, and his erect ears and tail are salient features of the breed. The Scottish Terrier’s bold, confident, dignified aspect exemplifies power in a small package.

Scottish Terriers come in a variety of colors, although black is generally the most recognizable. The approved AKC standard allows for black, brindle and wheaten scotties.

The Black Scottie-There may be an occasional hair strand that is not black. Single white hairs against an otherwise pure black coat is a clear indication that the dog is naturally black.

The Brindle Scottie-Color variation throughout the coat. Color changes are noticeable on each hair strand, not just from one strand to another. Some have more red tones and others more silver.

The Wheaten Scottie-The Wheaten Scottie is NOT a white Scottie, nor is it a Wheaten Terrier. The Wheaten coat is distinctively different from the Brindle in color, but it exhibits the same characteristic of color variation along each individual hair strand.
