Miss Beazley's father, a Scottish terrier named Clinton, was born on November 7, 2000. Clinton was the half-brother of the Bushes' first Scottish terrier, Barney. Miss Beazley's mother, Blackwatch Elizabeth, was bred by dog breeder Patricia Gilmore of Livingston, New Jersey. Gilmore would also breed Miss Beazley, a purebred Scottish terrier who was born in 2004.
Miss Beazley was adopted as a birthday present from President Bush to First Lady Laura Bush. She moved into the White House as a ten-week old puppy on January 6, 2005, shortly before the beginning of President Bush's second term in office. The First Lady and her daughters, Barbara and Jenna Bush, named their new dog after a character from Oliver Butterworth's 1956 children's book, "The Enormous Egg."
Miss Beazley and the Bushes' first Scottish terrier, Barney, became well known White House pets. In 2005, Miss Beazley and Barney were featured in the White House Christmas video, A Very Beazley Christmas, for her first holiday in the White House.
