This is our friend Hunter. She is a 15 month old West Highland Terrier, also known as a westie. Hunter is a perfect lady for her grooming, eager to please, and super sweet to boot!
Originating in Scotland, West Highland Terriers were used for hunting fox, badger, and otter, and for killing vermin such as rats. Westies are known to be sweet, jovial little dogs.
Westies shed very little. They are sometimes thought to be “hypoallergenic,” but that's not the case. Westies are great companions for those with allergies or asthma, as they shed very little hair and dander. Westies are typically groomed every 6 to 8 weeks.
Famous westies include "Coconut" from the American Girl series, the Juicy Couture company logo features two Westies holding a shield, and perhaps most famous, the “spokesdog” of the dog food company Cesar.
