West Highland White Terrier

West Highland White Terrier

This small dog is great with gentle older children, but is not recommended for babies or younger children that may agitate or pull the hair of the dog. Although they do need daily walks, they are a very low maintenance dog. Their fur is a very low shedding coat. They are very intelligent and easy to train.

They originate from the Highlands of Scotland as a vermin hunter and were brought over to America in the early 1900's. You may recognize the breed from the famous paint "Breakfast Pary", Sir Edwin Landseer in the 1830s.
