Westies In Need
If you are drawn to Westies because, “they are so cute” please be advised that their looks can be deceptive. The West Highland white terrier was bred to hunt and kill vermin in the Scottish highlands. He is tough, hardy, independent, and tenacious. This makes him a wonderful companion for those who appreciate and are charmed by the terrier temperament, but possibly a problem for the person who wants a gentle-natured little dog bred primarily for cuddling.
We receive more qualified applications from very fine homes than we have Westies to place, and it may take several months to put the right person with the right dog.
We are sorry, but we can not accept applications from families who have children under the age of 8 years old. We also strive to place our Westies in smoke free homes. We adopt our Westies only to folks who live in Ontario or Quebec.
