West Highland White Terrier - Guide to West Highland White Terriers

Description: The West Highland White Terrier is a small, sturdy, spunky and compact dog originally bred to hunt small game. The breed is believed to have originated in Poltalloch, Scotland in the nineteenth century. The most popular legend of how the breed came to be, tells us the distinctive all white coat is credited to Colonel Edward Donald Malcolm. It is believed Malcolm desired an all white terrier after one of his dogs with a reddish coat was mistaken for a fox and was shot. It was at that moment, legend states, that Malcolm decided to make it his mission to produce an all white terrier which would easily stand out during the hunt. Another version of how the West Highland Terrier, or Westie for short, originated was by luck. This story claims that also in the nineteenth century, among a breeder's litter of Cairn Terriers, there were several all white puppies.
