West Highland White Terrier

The West Highland White Terrier, commonly known as the Westie, is a breed of dog from Scotland. The modern breed is descended from a number of breeding programs of white terriers in Scotland before the 20th century. This breed of small white Scottish terriers was given its modern name for the first time in 1908, with recognition by major kennel clubs occurring around the same time. The breed remains very popular in the UK, with multiple wins at Cruft's. It is in the top third of all breeds in the US since the 1960s.
