Scottish Pet Portraits

Welcome. Here’s how my pet portrait site works. I hope you enjoy it

Scotland is famous for its many breeds of dogs, both pets and working dogs. There is the wonderful Border Collie, admired all over the world; the Rough-Haired Collie, popularised by Queen Victoria and originally a working dog, but now mostly a pet, the tough Border Terrier and the Cairn Terrier. There is also the Shetland Collie or Shelty, a barky but feisty little relative of the Rough Collie.

Apart from the Wild Cat, (definitely not a pet!) Scotland has produced the Scottish Fold Cat, with its forward facing ears, probably to keep out the wind. Also several horses; the impressive Clydesdale and the diminutive Shetland Pony.
