This tiny terrier is one of the most iconic breeds in the history of dogs. Although Scottish Terriers were bred to hunt and kill vermin on farms, they rose in popularity as a compaion pet during King James VI's reign in Scotland. When they were exported to the United States in the 1890s, they were welcomed by households aplenty. They are the only breed of dog that has lived in the White House three times (Presidents Roosevelt, Eisenhower, George W. Bush). Their popularity peaked after World War II. Although they may not be a popular household pet any longer, they are still prevalent as show dogs. (AKC)
