West Highland White Terrier
Country of Origin: Scotland.
Size: 28 cm (11 inches). Weight is around 7.5 kg (16.5 lbs).
Coat: Double-layered with a topcoat that is rough and hard and a soft, short undercoat. The color is always white.
Character: Also commonly referred to as the Westie, this breed is a boisterous, playful, alert, and independent breed. It is very extroverted and can be stubborn.
Temperament: The West Highland White Terrier needs to be trained at a young age not to try to dominate other dogs or chase cats. If you have children, it makes a good playmate because it can handle rough play.
Care: The coat must stay hard so it is not recommended that it be washed too frequently. If the dog gets dirty, the hair should be allowed to dry and then be brushed out. The coat needs to be hand-plucked twice a year.
Training: This particular dog can be naughty, so occasionally it may need to be corrected. Training will have to be consistent and firm.
Activity: This dog loves to run around, play with balls, and just have a good time. In spite of its diminutive size, it does need a lot of exercise. It will try to wander off, so a well-fenced yard is required.
