West Highland White Terrier...

 

West Highland White Terriers, commonly known as Westies, are a breed of dog known for their spirited personality and distinctive white coat. Westies are descended from Cairn Terriers, who occasionally whelped white puppies naturally, and Scottish Terriers; who also occasionally produced white offspring. Westies will usually conform to the sleep patterns of their human companions, and take several naps during the day as well, to accrue their needed sleep.

The West Highland White Terrier has a hard, straight, wiry outercoat and a soft undercoat that sheds little to no hair. They have a soft, dense undercoat and a rough outer coat, about 2 inches long, that requires regular grooming. Westies are prone to allergies and dry skin issues, and bathing too frequently may aggravate these problems. Washing once a month or on a longer interval will generally not cause issues. However, frequent brushings are needed to keep the coat clean and oils evenly distributed throughout the coat.
