The West Highland White Terrier is a small, game, well-balanced hardy looking terrier, exhibiting good showmanship, possessed with no small amount of self-esteem, strongly built, deep in chest and back ribs, with a straight back and powerful hindquarters on muscular legs, and exhibiting in marked degree a great combination of strength and activity.
Alert, happy, courageous and self-reliant, but friendly.
In the middle of the nineteenth century a Cairn Terrier breeder in the country of Argyll, Scotland discovered white pups in his litter, this is how this breed originated.
