Sunrise at Shady Nook - 02/09/2018


We have been breeding the finest and most lovable Scottish Terriers in the Indiana for over 16 years!  We not only breed our dogs to strict standards, but we nurture, socialize,  and love them, raising them alongside our own family. Of course, it’s our bloodlines that makes our dogs such wonderful companions.  We have 9 different Champion background bloodlines in our Scotties, from all over Europe, South America and the USA, and it shows !!  Our Scotties produce puppies that have wonderful temperaments, and they look like a Scottie should look. We’re different from other breeders…. we are a small, family-owned and operated breeder that raises our beautiful dogs with outstanding pedigrees. If you are looking for an alert, protective and healthy Scottie..... we have the Best in The Mid-West !!! We guarantee our Scotties for 1 year from genetic health problems.  We've had families come back the second and third times to add another one of our beautiful Scotties to their family.   Our puppies are born and raised in the home. They are completely house-trained to newspapers when we send them home with you.

We DO NOT advertise our puppies on ANY social media sites (Facebook, Instagram, etc.).  We REQUIRE a phone conversation with you to insure that you are a good fit for one of our puppies. Most of our puppies are placed in homes that are repeat buyers or that have heard of us by “word-of-mouth”…. the best advertising in the world.   We don't feel that it is appropriate to “fish” for potential clients.  We are well-known, with a good reputation as an honest, reputable breeder with gorgeous puppies.  If you want a high-quality, healthy, beautiful Scottie, that comes with a written health guarantee, YOU WILL FIND US…. WE DON’T HAVE TO LOOK FOR YOU !!!!  

We are honest and reputable and have earned an excellent reputation. We have been AKC inspected multiple times, and have always passed with flying colors.  We believe that everyone who wants a Scottie should be able to have one. We don’t feel that you should lie, cheat, or mis-lead people to sell a puppy. We want you to be comfortable with us as your breeder, because we expect to maintain contact with you for the life of your puppy.

Our latest inspection was performed by an AKC Field Representative on Nov 8, 2017.  As is their procedure, he checked our paperwork for previous and current dogs/puppies, the identification of our current dogs (tags, micro-chips, etc.), and made sure that all were well-fed, groomed, and properly taken care of…..


We welcome and support AKC inspections.  They help to insure that breeders are doing their best for their dogs.  Inspections are just one of the many reasons that AKC is the ONLY registration that you should trust for your net puppy – no matter which breed you choose.

We have been inspected multiple times by AKC field representatives.  They check our dogs and all of our paperwork.  Included in this type of visit is actual hands-on inspection of our dogs, including checking their micro-chip numbers, inspection of the space where the dogs sleep, exercise, and eat, as well as analysis of all paperwork required by AKC.    We have passed every time we’ve been inspected !!


Though the attached link is not specifically related to Scottish Terriers, we feel it is more than appropriate, given that Scotties suffer from more cancer THAN ANY OTHER BREED !!! 

We have been breeding Scotties for since 2002, and since 2008, we have felt that in-breeding and line-breeding was a contributing factor to the overwhelming instances of cancer (and may other health issues) that Scotties suffer.  At that time, we decided to find reputable breeders that had no in-breeding or line-breeding in their bloodlines.  Our research indicated that nearly all of the ‘desirable’ American bloodlines indicated multiple repeats of in-breeding and/or line-breeding.  At that time, we decided that we would research foreign bloodlines, and discovered that most European breeders did NOT in-breed or line-breed.

We acquired 3 Russian blood-lined Scotties in 2009 and, since that time, have only bred pairs that have at least one foreign blood-line.  We’ve found that puppies produced with this breeding philosophy have been healthy, gorgeous, and have a true Scottie personality.  We continue breeding under this philosophy to this day.  

Please read the following link and decide for yourself…..

There is a reason why you can't marry your cousin !!!!

We believe in planned puppy parenting. We interview every person or family before they adopt one (or sometimes two), of our Scottie puppies.

We realize that it is a major commitment to bring a quality Scottish Terrier puppy into your home !   We want to make the transition as stress-free as possible for all parties involved, but especially for the puppy !   You can purchase a Scottish Terrier puppy from lots of places, but no one will stand behind your quality Scottie puppy like we will !    You know the old saying ... "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR" ....we like to add "YOU CAN PAY THE BREEDER OR YOU CAN PAY YOUR VET"…  You will only receive a well-bred quality Scottish Terrier puppy from Shady Nook.   Thank you for considering us for your Scottie puppy!  We look forward to hearing from you !!

Savvy Scottie Magazine website Wheatie Sweetie MacKinnon Brought Home

As the publisher of a global magazine about Scottish Terriers, I have access to many resources for puppies. Having lost my Scottie to bladder cancer in late 2014, I sought out Shady Nook based upon their reputation, quality of their puppies and references from other Scottie owners. MacKinnon is a joy. Thank you for allowing us to bring a Wheatie back into our home.

PLEASE !!!   

SHADY NOOK is CLOSED on Sunday !!!

We have a family and do 'family-things' on Sunday....  

Effective immediately,

We will no longer answer our phone or make delivery appointments on Sunday.....

We will NOT place a Scottie in any home without first talking to you. Please DO NOT e-mail us requesting information!!  We need to talk to you before we determine if our puppy will be a good fit in your family. We don't reply to email questions unless we have already talked to you.   Call us!!! This way, we can explain Shady Nook's breeding program, and what to expect from us. We do things differently at Shady Nook.. not like any other breeder. Keep checking our website to see new information on litters that we are expecting. Our website contains information that will answer most of your questions.




Welcome to the Shady Nook Scotties website!

If you love Scotties like we do, or are just curious about them, please take the time to browse our website and learn more about this big dog in a little dog body !!     Check back often to see what's going on at Shady Nook Scotties.  We update the website regularly !!

We are committed to providing our clients with the healthiest, best Scottie that we can.   Please look through our website, and give us a call if you have questions or comments.   And, please,  sign our guestbook !!!!

We breed, raise, and love Scottish Terriers in a family environment with attention to reputable breeding practices.  We maintain a waiting list for puppy buyers and seldom have enough puppies to go around, so contact us if you are interested in a puppy and we can add you to the wait list.
We are breeding Scotties because.....
1). We love the breed,
2). We want to improve the breed, and
3). We want others to enjoy the breed.

Here at Shady Nook Scotties, we want to put you at ease when deciding to pick us as your breeder for your new  Scottish Terrier. We treat everyone with kindness and compassion. We hear from many families who have lost their best friend - it is heart-breaking. Nothing is worse than coming home to an empty, quiet house. We want to help our clients feel relaxed and confident that we will match them up to the right puppy. We really do strive to make your adoption experience special and exciting. We treat you like we want to be treated .......Like family.

When we started out we didn't want to be the biggest breeder, or just an ordinary dog breeder -- we wanted to be the BEST. Best service, reputable, honest, with straight answers, and the best looking Scottie puppies. We wanted healthy scotties, with written guarantees.  We wanted to be the best that we could be.  We believe that we have exceeded  our expectations, and yours, too.  We have made some wonderful life-long friends...

And we get immense enjoyment every time we place a new healthy, squirmy, scottie puppy in the arms of a new Shady Nook family.

Scottish Terriers have been immortalized in high art and pop culture more than any other breed of dog.

The Scottish Terrier


The Scottish Terrier is a fearlessly loyal companion with a fun-loving and independent spirit.  One of the most recognized of all the terriers, these wee, wire-haired dogs were originally bred to be working farm dogs and helped keep the farms of the Scottish Highlands free of varmints like foxes, mice and rats.  Today most Scottish Terriers are household companions and not working farm dogs, however they can still show the purpose for which they were bred by competing in Earthdog Trials,  You will also find them competing very successfully in the obedience, rally and agility rings. 


They have been very successful in dog shows.  To date, there have been eight (counting Sadie) different Scotties who have won Best in Show at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club show in New York City. 


Many famous people have enjoyed the company of these spunky little dogs.  Perhaps the most recognized have been those who have lived in the White House.  President Franklin D. Roosevelt had a beloved companion named “Fala” and President & Mrs George W. Bush had two Scotties – “Barney” and “Miss Beazley”.


All present day American Scottie pedigrees can trace their beginnings back to three specific black dogs from the 1800s – A female named “Splinter II” and two males, “UK Ch Alistar” and “UK Ch Dundee”.

After you've been owned by a Scottie,....everything else is just a DOG !!!!


We have had some amazing, healthy puppies.  – BREEDING HEALTHY, HAPPY SCOTTIES IS NO ACCIDENT !  We genetically test all of our breeding stock (males AND females) prior to breeding.  

Working closely with our vet, we plan future litters, deciding who to breed with whom.  If you are interested in a Scottie, give us a call.  We will add your name to our waiting list, with NO FEE, NO DEPOSIT, and NO OBLIGATION !! 

We are honest, reputable breeders.  We do NOT have puppies all the time - that's why we use a waiting list.    


All of our breeding stock and all of our puppies are AKC registered.   We are AKC inspected.  Kennel inspections insure the integrity of the AKC registry and monitor care and conditions across the country. The AKC is the only purebred dog registry in the USA that maintains a systematic and sustained investigation and inspection effort. The AKC conducts about 5,000 inspections each year  to insure compliance with standards that support health, safety and welfare of dogs and the environments in which they live.  

We believe that by breeding our males (with outstanding champions in their background) to our great-tempered females produces a Scottie with a wonderful temperament.  This insures that our customers are getting a great-looking AKC Scottish Terrier that is fun, friendly, and a lifetime companion.
Our Scotties are good with children, and become very attached to their family.   They are naturally inclined to get along with other pets.  We have had several repeat buyers !!
Many people are unaware that Scotties come in a variety of colors.  Colors can be black, brindle, black brindle, red brindle, silver brindle, and wheaten.  We have all colors of Scotties.  
Scotties will adapt to the activity level of your family -  
      they love to do what you love to do.
