The reputation of the breed was Kliaksa – a picture of a small funny man and a small blasted. Nevertheless, a miracle happened. This breed. There is no need to mention all its might be called the result of a fight between the descendants. At the beginning of the 90-ies they made nature and a man, convention and dogmas of the the basis of the Scottish Terriers.

And now when the The very first thing what masters have done biggest troubles are behind and everybody might – they made contacts with the breeders abroad. The breathe freely, the indomitable character of real result of this friendship is the import of very breeders make them go further because not all the interesting dogs from Finland, Germany, Sweden and victories are won, not all the dreams are fulfilled and Denmark and the invitation of experts to our we haven‟t got a Scottish that will be ideal and nice exhibitions. For the very first time in 1994 Raja in all senses. Jarvinen, the expert from Finland and the master of After all the genetic fights had been kennel “Raja” visited us.

And absolute record for the Scottish Terrier in our this had happened. country. Inter-champion, Champion of Russia, In 1986 people were able to see the Scottish Finland, Estonia, Byelorussia, Latvia – it will be of a very different type. It was so different from what mentioned in the annals like the most high-scoring the ones we used to see like the hedgehog from the Scottish Terrier in Russia. porcupine.

This is Raglan River Side (m. Ocheretianaja), the son of the famous English originator Gavin Wenchesom, and Raglan Royal Artist (m. Popova), the son of the World Champion „ 96 Cantorns John Joker and Champion of the Northern Countries Raglan Royal Serenade. From a new kennel “Dandy” for us, the master of which Christine Hutner agreed to collaborate with us, a mate Dandy Dorian Garden (m. Horunzaja), who had the blood of the famous English kennel “Stuane” and the Champions of America and England from the American kennel “Sandgregs” was taken to Russia. In the spring exhibition in Stockholm it managed to get the title of the Best Junior Dog of the exhibition and to win the prise of the Best in Show. Denmark didn‟t stay aside as well. From the most prominent kennel “Dansscots” the mate Dansscots Duke (m. Kudriavcev) was taken. In the autumn of 1997 two bitches from the kennel “Downtown” were taken. As the result of the active import the line of the best Scandinavian representatives concentrated in Moscow. The breeding of the Scottish Terriers in the Scandinavian countries is very popular in nowadays. Namely the dogs from Sweden, Denmark and Finland win the laurel in the biggest international competitions. The Scandinavian type is the mostly wanted type today. Because of the close collaboration with the best kennels of England, Scotland and America the Northern Countries became the dictating terms of the nowadays type of the Scottish Terrier in Europe. The Russian origins Scottish Terriers now successfully compete with the most prominent kennels in Europe and in the World Championships. Already now a lot of foreign partners follow the development of the breed in Russia. Who knows maybe the unforgettable day is not so far away when our dogs will win the titles of the Best, will go to the final competition for the Best in Show and will win. But for all the fans of the breed and for everybody the Scottish will stay the same as it used to be for hundred years – a charming small house guardian, a stranger and wiseacre, with a keen eye watching the heart of its master. Let us be worth of the society of the proud and independent Scottish Terriers, which know how to warm ones spirit not worse than the old good whiskey.
