They have medium to long, straight, wired-coat.
Scotchons are well-behaved, loveable, and energetic dogs. They sometimes acts quite aggressive with other dogs, maybe because of their size, but calms down in a few minutes and establishes a good relationship with them. They loves to bark at everything and always loves to be with the family.
