For anyone looking at purchasing a puppy,please check out Ann’s article on distinguishing great breeders from puppy mills.
The first Scottie is in Wyoming. The post’s on Craig’s List, which will likely take it down soon as they don’t allow pet sales or even giveaways. Scottie News has reproduced it:

Looks like a good grooming job to the Scottie News
My name is BraveHart and i was brought to a kill shelter by my own family. They didnt want me anymore. So a rescue who was at the shelter took me to get my shots up to date and test me for heartworms. Im negative by the way! I am really good in the car and i like to have my head out the window with the wind blowing in my hair. My hair was all knotted up so when i got groomed they had to shave off my Scottie cut except for my beard. But i feel much better now. My family did not brush me at all. I was very good for the groomer, even when she cleaned the goo off my face and found i had a little sore that was irritating me. I dont really like getting my legs shaved or my nails done. But i tolerate it. Im bossy with big dogs, so i curl my lip at them. But smaller dogs i sniff and hop around. I was really good for the vet and didnt bite. In fact with all the prodding and poking, shaving, bathing and examining i was so very good. I like people very much.
I was not abandoned for behavior problems. I guess my family just didnt want to feed and groom me anymore. They said i was three years old. The vet said i look closer to 5 but i could have just had a rough first three years.
As of yesterday, Peaches in Chittenden County was still looking for a forever home. Here are her details. She is seven years old and was apparently given up because she didn’t get along with the other animals in the home. WTF??!! [read more…]
Morgan was my first foster from St. Louis Scottish Terrier Rescue. I fell in love with her on sight in the back of the van that transported her and 6 other Scotties from a Missouri puppy mill. I could not adopt her immediately as she had a nasty UTI that took a month of antibiotics to tame so she couldn’t get spayed. It’s a good thing–she was pregnant with 6 puppies!
Besides enduring her 6 puppies for 10-12 weeks (in the mill, they’re pulled between 4-6 weeks old or whenever they are weaned) she has also been a foster sister to 15 Scotties & 1 Westie. I dog sit occasionally and Morgan does reasonably well with non-terrier dogs. Hey, she’s a natural born boss!
She is the happiest around other dogs; Morgan was in dog heaven at last year’s Door County Scottie Rally. She still has issues with people in general, especially men. Morgan sees my grandmother at least twice a week, and after almost 2 years, finally took a bone from grandma’s hand last week.
Thank you for posting such wonderful pictures & stories–I really enjoy the site!

Thanks, Angela for all your hard work and sharing your stories.
Last Sunday we showed video of some very lucky Scotties enjoying a birthday party. Three of the dogs were rescues from Scottish Terrier Rescue of the Southeast (formerly known as Scottish Terrier Rescue of the Carolinas) so we headed over to their site to find some feel-good rescue tales and, sure enough, we hit paydirt with the story of 10-year-old Mac:
A handsome older gentleman
Mac had belonged to someone who surely must have loved him. But health problems led his owner to put him in an outdoor pen, with no care or human interaction other than a neighbor’s daily feeding. He was filthy, overweight and suffering from skin issues and an ear infection. Mercifully, he found his way into Rescue. By the time I knew of him, Mac’s medical conditions had been treated, he had been neutered, and he was getting along well with the other dogs in his foster-family’s home.
When I met Mac, he kissed my nose. I was instantly charmed. Little did I know then that he is not a kisser!
If you can’t get enough of rescue Scotties, here’s video showing more of the dogs rescued by this group:
