Breed  Character Summary

West Highland White Terriers are a breed of dog known for their spirited personality and brilliant white coat. They are friendly, good with children, and thrive on lots of attention. Like most terriers, they have plenty of attitude (some may say "spirit") for a dog their size.

They have bright, dark brown to black, deep-set eyes with a penetrating gaze. The ears are small, pointed and erect, giving them an alert "ready-for-anything" look.

 As with most terriers, harsh training methods are often met only with stubbornness. Westies are great dogs to have about, normally good with the elderly, disabled, and young children. They generally make very good company.
