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 !!!
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 that Scotties are suffering from. 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 of
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.
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.

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
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
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 are also proud members of
the Owensboro (Ky) River City Kennel Club (ORCKC).
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 -
love to do what you love to do.
