About Us

Who We Are

Launched in March 2016 as a Meet Up social group, the not-for-profit London Scottie Club was the idea of journalist and social media consultant George Matlock.

“The breeder from where our two Scotties came normally has 6 people on the waiting list for Scotties. That jumped to 36 after the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014 and mushroomed to 150 after the 2015 Crufts win by “Knopa” the Scottie. A thrilling resurgence of this rare breed, but frankly I grew a bit anxious they continue to go to happy homes. That’s where the Club comes in,” George says.

Since 2017, working with Scottish Terrier Emergency Care Scheme, George helps the charity in south London when there are rehoming requests or someone would like to adopt a Scottie.
