The West Highland White Terrier is believed to have its origins in Poltalloch, Scotland. So, in the beginning, they were called Poltalloch Terriers. They were also called Roseneath Terriers at times. This name came from the estate of the Duke of Argyll. They were first seen in 1906 in the U. S. as Roseneath Terriers. However, in 1909, their name was permanently changed to West Highland White Terriers.
Frequently called "Westie," this breed has a friendly, yet strong-willed, temperament as well as a stunning white coat. They possess the qualities that terriers are known for including lots of spunk and determination. In addition, they are quite devoted to their human owners. These dogs carry lots of confidence and excel in many AKC events from obedience to agility to conformation.
These remarkable little dogs adore people and are a loving addition to any household. They are happy, faithful and devoted and make the ideal traveling companion because of their small size. This breed boasts dry coats that consist of a rough outer coat and an undercoat that is soft and dense. Daily brushing is required as well as clipping or stripping of their coat on a regular basis. The high energy of the West Highland White Terrier means that they must receive plenty of exercise.
