Because the Scottie News gets asked this question fairly regularly, we’re proposing some answers:
A Giant Schnauzer, perhaps?
Or maybe a Black Russian Terrier, a breed we discovered for the first time last week when we asked the owner: “Is that a Giant Schnauzer?” According to Wikipedia, the BRT (not to be confused with the far better known BLT) “is a breed of dog developed originally as a guard dog and police dog. It is rare outside its native country and is just starting to be recognized elsewhere; for example, it is one of the AKC’s most-recently recognized breeds, gaining full status in July of 2004.”
If ever there were a terrier, manful enough for Scottie-dissing, former KGB agent Vladimir Putin, this sure looks like it would be the one. If we were Koni, we’d be more than a little careful.
