West Highland White Terrier

West Highland White Terrier

West Highland White Terrier

The West Highland White Terrier is a bold, confident, fun-loving, intelligent dog who can find joy in the simplest pleasures of life, such as squeaky toys, a belly rub, and food. They typically weigh between 13 to 22 pounds, and can be characterized by their dense, white coat with a soft undercoat. His happy disposition and love of life make him a favorite for many, despite his mischievous streak.

 

Common Health Conditions

  • Skin diseases are very common in West Highland White Terriers, especially allergies (which cause itchy skin and often lead to pyoderma) and seborrhea.
  • The pancreas is the organ that produces digestive enzymes and insulin. Some dogs, like your West Highland White Terrier, are prone to developing pancreatitis, which is inflammation of this important organ.
  • White dog shaker syndrome (also known as idiopathic steroid responsive shaker syndrome, shaker dog syndrome and "little white shakers" syndrome) causes full body tremors in small dog breeds.
