West Highland White Terrier Puppies For Sale (Westies)
All available puppies pictured below are here in Oxford, Massachusetts
The West Highland White Terrier may be better known by their
nickname, Westie. The breed originated in Scotland during the 19th
century when a Cairn Terrier whelped white puppies. Through selective breeding,
the West Highland White Terrier was developed. Today, Westies are distinctly their
own breed. High in energy and spunk, the breed is enjoyable and lovable. They
adore their owners and companionship the relationship provides. They are easy
to train and good with considerate children. Like most terriers, dominance should be placed
over the dog; failure to do so may create training and behavior problems.
The coarse hair is fairly easy to maintain. Regular brushing
will help keep the animal clean. Trimming and stripping of the coat will be
needed. Bathe them only when necessary. Westies
are considered hypoallergenic; they have little to no shedding.
Westies are okay with apartment living. Because they are
active indoors, only short walks are needed.
The life expectancy for this breed is about 12 to 15 years.
