The Scottish Terrier and Dog News gets a lot of visitors looking for information about wheaten Scotties so we’ve created a new category and grouped all our posts on wheatens together.
According to the Scottish Terrier Club of America, only about 5-10% of Scotties. Wheatens are not white although the STCA notes that “the wheaten coat can be very light especially if it has been clippered. Often the Wheaten Scottish Terrier is confused with the West Highland White Terrier, as in the Black and White Ads. They are not the same breed.”
Wheaten Scotties have a far more rectangular head than Westies, they’re more handsome than pretty and their build is stockier. Below we bring you a watercolour wheaten Scottie whose gender is undetermined and a pretty boy westie.
For the full plain vanilla or white guy experience, you can also check out this video of a wheaten scottish terrier hanging with his west highland buddy.
