West Highland White Terrier
The full name of the Westy is West Highland White Terrier.
This dog evolved from a hunting to a companionship dog. The choice of a good breeder is very important to get a thoroughbred Westy.
A Westy never has a problem to fit in someplace. He will even get used to the city life, as long as he has enough exercise. His vivid character makes him a funny little dog.
It is important to start the education in time so the Westy can learn to be a real friend for the children. His fur needs to be trimmed twice a year.
