The west highland white terrier, or as we affectionately know the Westies, is a small fluffy breed of dogs. They are good companion dogs and belong to a breed of trained hunters. The Westies originally belong to the west Scotland highlands, its name standing for the literal meaning of its breed color, type and place of origin.
The little creatures stand at 10 to 11 inches measured at the shoulder, with dark beautiful piercing eyes, and a compact body, with a carrot-shaped wagging tail. With all the charm, the Westie’s looks look irresistible. The westies are true working terriers of gameness and courage. Bred to hunt, the westies are surprisingly strong and tough. They have a soft and fluffy touch. Thanks to their faithfulness and keen intelligence, Westies train nicely with time and patience.
