    Default West Highland Terrier

    Does anyone have one? Can anyone share any information or stories?
    I'm keen to buy one but would love to do more research first on the temperament, upkeep, health etc first.

    So can anyone share any personal experiences of this breed?

    Thanks!

    Lovely dogs. But please beware of unscrupulous breeders with Westies. There are terribly unhealthy Westie pups and dogs coming out of puppy farms all over the place.

    I know some people who were looking for one and were quoted an outrageous price for a pet puppy with no registration. We checked on current prices and asked for good breeders through our State breed club for them. They ended up finding a gorgeous pup, from known healthy parentage and with good breeder support, at a lower price.

    She is a cheeky little bugger, but within two days they couldn't imagine life without her!

    They do need grooming and training or they will often walk all over their owners.

    Find a groomer who knows Westie coats, as they are much easier to maintain with absolute minimal bathing, but with "dry" bathing. Bathing Westies too much leads to smelly yucky coats.
