West Highland White Terrier Information

West Highland White Terrier breedDogs don’t get much cuter than the West Highland White Terrier. First, there’s the dark, soulful eyes and adorable black button nose. Then there’s the tiny, upturned ears, smiling face and fluffy white fur, all packed into a tiny 13- to 20-pound body. Simply adorable!

Despite his cute exterior, the West Highland White Terrier is surprisingly strong and plucky given his pedigree as a working Terrier. As a pet, he is a constant entertainer who loves to have fun. He is loyal and completely devoted to his family. Just make sure he is always on a leash or in a fenced in yard – this guy loves to run!
