CollectA - West Highland White Review:
West Highland White Information:The West Highland White Terrier, commonly known as the Westie, is a small and energetic breed of dog. Westies have a compact and sturdy build. They have a distinctive double coat with a harsh, straight outer coat and a soft, dense undercoat. Their coat is typically white in color, although some may have a slight cream hue. They have a rounded head, dark, almond-shaped eyes, and erect, pointed ears. The breed has a lively and alert expression. West Highland Whites are considered a small-sized breed. On average, they stand about 10 to 11 inches (25 to 28 cm) tall at the shoulder and weigh around 15 to 20 pounds (7 to 9 kg).
Westies are known for their lively and confident nature. They are friendly, affectionate, and often exhibit a feisty, independent streak. They are generally good with children, but early socialization is important to ensure proper behavior. Westies are also known to be quite vocal, alerting their owners to any potential dangers or visitors.
Despite their small size, Westies are active and energetic dogs. They require regular exercise to keep them mentally and physically stimulated. Daily walks, playtime, and interactive toys can help fulfill their exercise needs. Westies are intelligent and respond well to positive reinforcement training methods. They can excel in various activities, including obedience, agility, and even some forms of terrier sports.
The West Highland White Terrier's coat requires regular grooming to keep it in good condition. Their double coat sheds minimally, but it does require brushing at least a couple of times a week to prevent matting and tangles. Regular trimming is necessary to maintain the characteristic Westie appearance. Additionally, occasional professional grooming may be required for more intricate shaping.
Westies are generally a healthy breed, but they may be prone to certain health issues like allergies, skin problems, and conditions affecting the eyes and ears. Regular veterinary check-ups, a balanced diet, and proper grooming can help maintain their overall health. The average lifespan of a West Highland White Terrier is around 12 to 16 years, although some may live longer with proper care.
