Thanks for looking !!

We DO NOT provide information regarding puppies, pricing, availability, etc, unless you call us !   Since most of our puppies do not stay in our local area, we INSIST on speaking to everyone who wants on our wait list.  In order to protect our puppies, we are very strict about who gets one of them. 

We now offer AKC Scottish Terrier Stud Service via frozen semen from 3 fabulous Scotties !!!    If you have a vet that can handle/process/implant frozen semen, it can be shipped to your location.    These males have MANY champions in their backgrounds, and are beautiful examples of Scottish Terriers. 

If you are interested in breeding to one of these handsome lads, please contact us …..  In order to utilize frozen semen, arrangements must be made well in advance of your female coming in season.

You can produce a litter of puppies with healthy, imported bloodlines without the expense of obtaining/maintaining a male dog year-round. 

You have 2 choices regarding frozen semen pricing…..

1).  Flat amount semen fee.

         -  OR  -

2). We receive pick-of-the-litter puppy back. This option requires a $500 deposit, which is returned to you upon your delivery of the puppy to our location.

Both options will be bound by a written contract.  In either case, fees must be received PRIOR to semen being shipped from our vet. We will be glad to answer any questions about frozen semen breeding.  Just give us a call.

 We ONLY accept PayPal  !!

Cancer in Scottish Terriers

Scottish Terriers have a greater chance of developing some cancers than other purebreds. According to research by the Veterinary Medical Data Program (1986), six cancers that Scotties appeared to be more at risk for (when compared to other breeds) are: (in descending order) bladder cancer and other transitional cell carcinomas of the lower urinary tract (the dreaded TCC); malignant melanoma; gastric carcinoma; squamous cell carcinoma of the skin; lymphosarcoma and nasal carcinoma. Other cancers that are known to commonly affect Scotties include mast cell sarcoma and hemangiosarcoma....


...Research has suggested that Scottish Terriers are 20 times more likely to get bladder cancer than other breeds and the most common kind of bladder cancer is transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder (TCC). Dr. Deborah Knapp of Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine has commented "TCC usually occurs in older dogs (average age 11 years) and is more common in females (2:1 ratio of females to males)." Symptoms of TCC are blood in the urine, straining to urinate, and frequent urination — although owners noticing any of these symptoms should also be aware that the same symptoms may also be indicative of a urinary tract infection.

The most common and effective form of treatment for TCC is Piroxicam, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that "allows the cancer cells to kill themselves." In order to help prevent cancer in a dog, an owner should ensure that their dog has minimal exposure to herbicides, pesticides, solvents and cigarette smoke; use caution when treating dogs with some flea medications; provide a healthy, vitamin-rich diet (low in carbohydrates, high in vegetables) and plenty of exercise.

Sunrise at Shady Nook - 02/09/2018


We have been breeding the finest and most lovable Scottish Terriers in the Indiana since 2001!  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 multiple 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 our 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 next 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 2001, and since 2008, we have felt that in-breeding and line-breeding was a contributing factor to the overwhelming instances of cancer (and many 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 YOUR 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 !!

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 (hopefully) 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.

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.
