West Highland White Terrier




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.


West Highland White Terriers are adorable puppies that are small but sturdy. They love their family and will enjoy getting attention from anyone, but are a bit more active than your typical lapdog. The West Highland White Terrier is friendly and happy, with a lively nature that endears them to everyone.
