West Highland White Terrier

 

Origin:

 

The West Highland White Terrier were first bred in the 1700s by the Malcom clan on their estate in Scotland. It is thought that the terriers of Scotland—such as the Westie, Cairn, Skye, Scottish, and Dandie Dinmont terriers—are all branches of the same family tree.
