The West Highland White Terrier, commonly known as the Westie or Westy, is a Scottish breed of dog with a distinctive white coat.
The breed is very popular in the UK, twice winner at Cruft's, and is in the top third of all breeds in the US since the 1960s.
It has been featured in television and film including in 'Hamish Macbeth' and in advertising by companies such as Cesar dog food and Scottish whisky Black & White.
It is a medium-sized terrier, although with longer legs than other Scottish breeds of terrier. It has a white double coat of fur which fills out the dog's face giving it a rounded appearance.
Cousin to the Cairn Terrier, the Westie was bred to hunt small rodents at places such as farms.
The Westie is an active and intelligent breed, and is social with a high prey drive. The breed can be good with children, but will not always tolerate rough handling.
