Scottish Terrier mixes and hybrids include Scotchis, Wescotts, Schnotties, Bushlands, Scottiepoos and many more intriguingly-named designer dogs.
If you’re trying to find out whether your mutt — oops, designer dog — might have a bit of Scottie in him or her, you could try a Dog DNA test kit. To be frank, the Scottie News is not impressed with their results but it seems hundreds of users are. Your call.
If you’d just like to find out if a Scottie-cross or another designer mutt might be the right dog for you, check out this episode of Animal Planet’s Dogs 101. It’s all about designer dogs and you can live stream it from Amazon. If you’re the old fashioned type, you can order entire seasons on DVD. Or if you’re really old fashioned, you can browse designer dog books. Click the image for more information.
Zoe and Laura are cute, fluffy and playful but they need a friendly home to call their own. And if you can provide them a home you will have double the fun.
The pair, who have grown up together, have been living at the Homebush boarding kennels after their owners had to leave the country suddenly due to personal reasons and were not able to find them a home in time.
Even if you can’t take Zoe and Laura, you can try and guess what kind of crosses they are. The Scottie News suspects Laura, the lighter dog, might be a Scojack — a Scottish Terrier/ Jack Russell cross — or some kind of Norfolk/Norwich mix-up or maybe not even Scottie at all. Zoe definitely looks like a Scottie cross — perhaps with a beagle. Add your thoughts in the comments. And remember, you can’t trust those dog DNA tests to do the detective work for you.test

Scottish Terrier/West Highland Terrier mix
Registered with the ACHC (American Canine Hybrid Club)
George (left) is a Bushland Terrier — half Scottie and half Cairn — while John-Paul (right) is a Scoland Terrier — half Scottie and half Westie. They’re both coming up on two years old and though they originally lived together, they were separated by a human divorce. Now, George lives with his fur Mom while John-Paul is Fur Daddy’s boy.
Their Dad writes:
They are alike and also very different. I got the both from a pet shop at different times, I know that you aren’t supposed to get animals from pet shops, but when I saw these guys I knew they were coming with me.
Scottie News hopes they still get to spend some quality time together in the RV.
Despite making a hot couple, it’s doubtful that these two show dogs will ever have an unchaperoned moment alone and be able to consummate their love and produce a litter of ScotChis or Taco Terriers. Think of them Charles and Camilla back in those pre-Diana days, who, despite their love, were destined to remain apart.
I have just recently realized that my dog Lola is almost certainly a Bushland. She’d been picked up as a stray before I adopted her from a shelter at about 3 years of age, so any clues as to her parentage were long gone. I wavered between Scottie mix and Cairn mix until I came across some poor-quality pictures of Bushlands on dogbreedinfo and realized, Duh! She could be both! The much better pictures of Lorna only serve to confirm my suspicions–the only major difference between them that I can see is that Lorna’s legs look a bit shorter than Lola’s in the picture where she’s pawing at the fish tank. The big round eyes are exactly the same, though I must say I think Lola got more of the Scottie ears!
I’ll attach a few select pictures to this email, but you’re also welcome to view her full album here.
Thanks for letting me share–as you can see, I’m a bit gaga over her.
The Scottish Terrier and Dog News agrees that Lola looks like she’s a good part Scottie, but we think she’s too leggy to be only Scottie and Cairn. Also, we’re not entirely sure about those eyes, which don’t look totally terrierish to us.
