Described by Sir Walter Scott as “the most perfect creature of Heaven,” the Scottish Deerhound is a gentle giant. With a big frame and even bigger heart, these canines are known for their quiet intelligence and keen perception. They are polite and dignified, and their ability to enjoy life's simple pleasures is sure make them the best roommate you could ask for.
