West Highland White Terrier PersonalityEdit

West Highland White Terriers, or Westies, as they are more commonly known, are game terriers, who are easily trained, and don't mind strangers and get along well with children. They are good travel companions, but also need a nice ammount of exercise. They are also rather good watch dogs, even though they are small. Westies also get along great with other dogs. They also enjoy barking, so if you have a baby, the Westie might not be the best choice. If you like to move around and travel, and want a companion, the Westie just might be the breed you are looking for.
