Since 1991 we have had Scottish Terriers in our home and as time passed we started showing our Scotties and then began our breeding program. Our small kennel strives to breed healthy Scotties for companionship and personal enjoyment. Again we do show our Scotties and our prime goal is to produce Scotties that conform to American Kennel Club standard for the breed.
CH Ayrshire's Midnight Secret (Chloe) @ 4 weeks
With health, attitude and conformation being held in balanced portions, we strive to produce the best Scottish Terriers we can. This is not a business for us, we never short cut our health care or welfare of our Scotties, they are truly home raised. While we do show our Scotties and believe this is just of one means of judging the quality dogs of our, we also recognize that quality and healthy Scotties do exist outside of the ring and while we strive to use only AKC champions in our breeding program, we will under rare circumstances use other outstanding quality Scotties.
Our line is VWD clear by test and we have begun to certify our line with the Canine Health Information Center (CHIC) and Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) registries, CH Ayrshire’s Midnight Secret and CH Ayrshire’s Twist of Fate are the first of our line to be listed. The main purpose of these registries is to establish a database of permanent standardized test results for owners, breeders and canine health professionals to use.

Our breeding program is based on healthy dams that we have developed through our breeding program, to date; we have always gone outside our kennel for quality stud dogs but that may change in the future. Our pedigrees include many generations of AKC and other internationally recognized Champions.
Occasionally we may have puppies available for adoption. Please see our Puppies page if you want additional information.
