Known for his friendly, strong-willed personality and bright white coat, the West Highland White Terrier is an affectionate, happy and faithful family companion. A highly intelligent, speedy and cunning hunter, the Westie originated in 17th century Scotland. This spunky breed needs daily exercise, and his fluffy coat needs daily brushing and regular trimming.
The West Highland White Terrier also has been known as the Roseneath Terrier and the Poltalloch Terrier.
