Scottish Terriers are adorable dogs with a distinct personality and strong opinions. But they are also great dogs to interbreed with and are parents to some amazing breeds, that bring in the traits of other dogs making a uniquely adorable offspring. The following are 21 of the most adorable Scottish Terrier mix breeds.
Scottish Terrier Basset Hound Mix (Bascottie)
The Bascottie is a mix of the Scottish Terrier and Basset Hound. Most of the physical traits of this breed resemble its ancestors from the Scottish highlands and islands, but its legs have a resolute resemblance to the Basset Hound.
The Bascottie is small to medium sized and is often difficult to tell apart from the Scottish Terrier. It has a wiry coat but takes after the Basset Hound with larger years and a slightly larger nose. It also has a slightly longer body than the Scottish Terrier and has legs resembling its Basset Hound parentage.
The Bascottie is high on energy like its Scottish Terrier parent but is not always up for playing, and can be described as ‘serious’. It has a strong personality and will make its moods known, though they do not bark for too long even when upset. The Basset Hound, however, gives the Bascottie a gentler temper and the dogs like to be around people. But they do not like to be poked or roughed up so it would be better to keep an eye on the younger kids when they are around this breed.
Scottish Terrier Beagle Mix (Sceagle)
The Sceagle is a mix between the Scottish Terrier and the beagle. The first Sceagle appeared only recently and the breed does not date back beyond 2000. Therefore, not much can be inferred about Sceagles though one can note the temperaments of the respective parents and make a rough assessment.
Sceagles do not grow to be too big. A grown Sceagle may also be about 15 inches tall. It has a short coat like its beagle parent, which can also be wiry at times like its Scottish Terrier parent. The Sceagle also has long, droopy ears like its Beagle parent and a long tail that typically stays high. They have brown eyes and coats of various colors, including a mix of gray and white, orange and white, red and white, or even plain black or brown.
Sceagles are generally friendly dogs and make for great family pets. But it is important to train and socialize them from an early age. While they are friendly and enjoy affection, they are also good watchdogs and can be suspicious of strangers. They are also obedient dogs for the most part but do have strong personalities that can make them stubborn.
Scottish Terrier Bichon Frise Mix (Scotchon)
The Scotchon is a mix between the Scottish Terrier and the Bichon Frise. The breed came into being in the United States only around 2009 and does not have a very long history. The Scottish Terrier was once recognized as a Skye Terrier, while the Bichon Frise is said to have origins in Tenerife.
The Scotchon is descended from two breeds that both have double-coated fur. This means that the Scotchon also has thick, often curly fur. The dogs do not grow too much in size, though they have longer hind legs and shorter legs in the front. Their fur can be of various colors, including brown, gray, golden, black, white or perhaps even a combination of these colors.
Scotchons make for great pets and like to be around people. While they are friendly, they also like their independence and at times may also inherit the temper of their Scottish Terrier parent. You should certainly socialize your Scotchon from an early age.
Scottish Terrier Boston Terrier Mix (Scobo Terrier)
The Scobo Terrier is a mix between the Boston Terrier and the Scottish Terrier. The origins of this breed are not known, however, this is a breed that is not hard to find.

The Cavottish is a mix of the Scottish Terrier and the Cavalier King Charles.

Cavalier King Charles gets its name from the patronage the breed enjoyed in the British royal family.
These dogs are generally small and have short legs. They usually have a lot of hair on their face, like their Scottish Terrier parents. While the Cavalier King Charles has long, silky years, the Cavottish does not inherit these long ears though they are not pointy like the Scottish Terrier either.
It is difficult to identify a common temperament among Cavottish dogs, as they may inherit it from either of their parents. In general, they are friendly dogs and make good pets, but while the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is good with kids, Scottish Terriers are not always.

They usually do not get along with other pets and animals, but they can be socialized from an early age to fix this. They also get along decently with kids, but may not always be indulgent of younger kids trying to poke them. They prefer the company of older kids who understand their limits with the dog.
Scottish Terrier Cocker Spaniel Mix (Scottish Cocker)
The Scottish Cocker is a mix of Scottish Terriers and Cocker Spaniels. While the Cocker Spaniel is a sociable and mellow breed, the Scottish Terrier can have a temper and is known for its agility. But the hybrid breed could have a mix of both these traits and has a unique personality.
