West Highland Terrier For Sale
If you have ever wished to adopt a Scottish terrier, you might want to consider the West Highland White Terrier. This breed has Scottish roots and was developed as a guard dog to protect farms and homes from foxes and badgers. The breed was once considered one breed but later separated from the Scottish Terrier and Cairn Terrier through selective breeding. Nowadays, you can find both purebred pups and adoptable Westies from these organizations.
Although small in stature, the Westie can fit through tiny spaces. Originally known as Roseneath terriers, they are always white and are prone to getting sunburned. While they may not be the best companion for an office job or a busy home, they do make excellent pets and require lots of attention. A Westie will develop a strong bond with its owner, so be prepared to put in a lot of time to keep the pet amused.
The Westie Rehoming Society in the South East of Ireland was founded in 2005 and rescued around 300 Westies each year.
It relies on donations to keep the organization running and screens potential adopters. The rescue takes rescued Westies from abusive environments and rehabilitates them until they are ready for adoption. While Westie ReHoming is a separate group in the UK, all the dogs adoptable from this organization are given a chance to find a good home.
The West Highland Terrier Rescue UK is also dedicated to finding a loving and forever home for each dog that comes through the shelter. It operates a non-destruction policy, which means that healthy dogs are not destroyed. They are fostered by volunteers, so their foster homes are often quite large and well-stocked.
