West Highland White Terrier
About the BreedAlso commonly referred to as the Westie, this breed is a boisterous, playful, alert, and independent breed. It is very extroverted and can be stubborn.
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.
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.
