ADOPTION PENDING - There’s never been a more handsome little fellow than Iggy. This sweet 6 month old Scottish Terrier Mix doesn’t have a tragic story, but he is the product of a tragic mistake that people make when they don’t spay and neuter their pets. Iggy and his brothers were an unwanted litter and are now adding to the number of homeless sweethearts out there waiting to find a forever home. These adorable boys were brought to a shelter in hopes they would be adopted, and happily, the woman who turned them in quickly understood the need to spay the mother dog. She had the procedure done after the litter was born.
Iggy spends his time at his foster home playing with his brothers, the other foster dogs, and the children that come to visit. He enjoys very much a good game of tug-of-war and is the little mentor of a good play fight. Size doesn’t matter, he loves to wrestle with anyone! Iggy is a happy-go-lucky, spirited little boy who would be a perfect addition to any family. As for any puppy, Iggy needs lots of love, patience, and a warm spot to curl up in. But he is a smart boy, learning quickly, and will be a wonderful companion to a lucky family.
His foster mom describes Iggy as a sociable happy-go-lucky little guy, like most puppies, he explores everything around him because he's curious about the world. His playful happy energy will make a wonderful playmate for a family with kids and he would be a perfect companion to another dog. He likes to be with his humans, get plenty of belly rubs, and have a nice warm bed and cuddle up with you wherever you are.
This adorable guy is looking for a loving family that will dote on him and treat him as he deserves--a lifetime cherished member. Our rescue works from our hearts for our dogs; it is the least we can do for them because they deserve nothing less. We owe it to our dogs that the wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue and the first chapter of their new forever lives deserve him.
Whether you adopt through Rescue Dog Village or any other similar organization, the LEAST we can do is thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering welcoming these deserving dogs into your hearts and home. One of our favorite sayings is "RESCUE IS THE BEST BREED," and we believe that wholeheartedly. Help us help these dogs and submit your application today!

ABOUT THE BREED
PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE TO CHECK OUT THE SECTION BELOW: RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.
It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that–then you’re bound to enjoy each other.
ABOUT THE BREED
The Scottish Terrier is the best known and possibly oldest of the Highland terriers. This stylish breed is primarily a companion. President Roosevelt had a Scottish Terrier named Fala in the White House. Not necessarily recommended for households with toddlers as this breed can be possessive of its toys and food.
Sporty and playful, Scottish Terriers bring a high-spirited energy to any household. Perfectly at home in apartments, houses or grand estates, Scotties have a distinctive charm that can be both amusing and bewildering at the same time. They are a proud breed, full of happiness, dignity and toughness. Most of all, they love companionship—give your Scottie plenty of that, and it will be your ever-loving pal.
When you think of a terrier, what kind of breed do you think of? Well, depending where you are, you might have a different answer. Three former Presidents, including George W. Bush, have had Scottish Terriers at the White House. But whatever your political leanings, the Scottish Terrier doesn’t have to be a breed reserved only for U.S. presidents – it can make a great pet for you and yours.
So what makes a Scottish Terrier special? As you’re about to find out, there’s a great deal of information about the Scottish Terrier that inspires a cult following of this playful, easy-to-get-along-with breed. Like many breeds of dog, you’ll find that the relatively peaceful personality makes for a perfect pet. Just make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise, affection and discipline and you’ll rarely go wrong. You’ll find that the Scottish Terrier’s relatively peaceful personality makes for a perfect pet.
CHILDREN & PETS
Scottish Terriers are so good with children that they have been called a nanny — but, like any terrier, the Scottie will react poorly to his tail or hair being pulled, and he's not well suited to the noise and movements of toddlers and very young children. But with 100%adult supervision and well-behaved children, they are a champion and will appoint themselves their guardian. Some Terriers may not well suited to small mammals such as hamsters or rats.
The Scottish Terrier is brave, alert, protective, hardy and a lovable friend. As with all dogs, you will achieve the best results with gentle direction and consistent rules. Dogs are sensitive to criticism and praise and this breed is lively, proud, and intelligent. They are charming and full of character, make a very good watchdog and evaluates new people outside its own family. They are good with children, get along with other household pets. They are loving and gentle with people, enjoys playing play ball games and is a perfect walking companion. They are home loving and independent. They are will happily accompany you for a walk or play session in the park, and delights in fetching sticks and balls. This dog has a tendency to wander.
The Scottish Terrier's character and personality are a bit like the lonely moors of his homeland. They are a serious guy/gale and approves of dignity and reserve. They are opinionated, as well as independent and smart as a whip. They are careful and slow to accept anyone outside the family, but their devotion to their own people are legendary. They need to live inside the house, because companionship is his mainstay. Sensitive to praise and anger, he's good at adapting to the changing moods of a household. When you're quiet; when you're ready for a walk, he'll bound outdoors with you. If another dog provokes him, he'll protect his human. If other dogs leave him alone, he leaves them alone.
Disclaimer: Please note that the breeds posted on our dogs' biographies are our best guess based on years of working with rescue dogs. Adopters who need to know the exact breed or mix of breeds of a particular dog must have the dog's DNA tested at their own expense.
