The West Highland White Terrier, or Westie as he is affectionately called, is a small dog with a big attitude. This loyal and independent terrier is ranked #34 in dog registrations by the American Kennel Club (AKC ). The breed was originally used to hunt vermin but today enjoys participating in various activities and enjoying the company of their humans. In fact, Westies are considered to be among the most people oriented of all the terrier breeds. With chapters devoted to training and activities, West Highland White Terrier shows you how to keep this feisty Fido entertained and engaged.
