West Highland White Terrier: breed description
West Highland White Terrier is a cute little snow-white dog that is gaining more and more popularity due to playfulness and goodwill.
West Highland White Terriers are obedient, easy to learn and adore active games. They strive to please the owner, however, they also require special attention from people. They need regular, though not lengthy, classes.
As a rule, West Highland White Terriers calmly relate to strangers and do not conflict with dogs, but this requires early socialization. They like to chase cats, but if you work on the attitude towards cats, this does not turn into a problem. But they can pursue small animals - the hunting instinct in these dogs is quite developed.
West Highland White Terriers sometimes suffer from allergies. And their sensitive skin requires careful care. Hair care is also not an easy one. All this must be taken into account if you decide to get a dog of this breed.
West Highland White Terriers at different times lived in the families of Michael Schumacher, Jennifer Aniston, Scarlett Johansson, Alfred Hitchcock, Frank Sinatra and other celebrities.
