The West Highland White Terrier is a breed of dog from Scotland. It has a white double coat of fur which fills out the dog’s face, giving it a rounded appearance. The Westie is everything a terrier was designed to be. Sturdy, spunky, and bold, he needs his daily walks and interactive play sessions. It is affectionate and demanding, one of the friendliest terriers. It is not friendly, however, toward small animals.
