      About West Highland White Terriers

      Although these little white dogs were originally meant to be rodent-hunting dogs, or “ratters”, today’s Westies are primarily bred as companion dogs. With a feisty, spunky personality, a Westie is not your typical lap dog; they are happy, active dogs and love to be running and exploring outdoors. They are a hardy, independent breed that are loyal, entertaining and love to be with people.

      These extremely friendly and well-liked dogs make great companions for adults and children over the age of 8.

      Origin
