West Highland White Terriers


West Highland Terrier


The West Highland white terrier originated in the 19th century and probably shares a common Highland ancestry with the Scottie, cairn, and Dandie Dinmont. They were used for ratting and for "going to ground" after game in their burrows.
West Highland white terriers are good family dogs adaptable to life in the cities, suburbs, or country. They are more high-strung than cairn terriers but still respond well to obedience training.

Appearance
The outercoat is straight, hard, and about two inches long, shorter on the neck and shoulders; the undercoat is short, soft, and tight. Coat color is pure white. Among the breed's distinguishing features are small, erect ears with sharp tips and a black nose.

Height: 10-11 inches . Weight: 15-20 lbs.
