West Highland White Terriers? Look Here If You Know Anything About Them Please.?

So i’m thinking about getting a west highland white terrier. While looking through pictures it seems like there’s a slight difference between some of the pictures I’ve found. One looks a bit larger and more like a run around play dog. The other looks like an inside dog who stays inside. Here are the links to the pictures. http://static.desktopnexus.com/wallpaper…

I was just wondering if there’s a slight difference in the breeding, grooming, or just looks. Thanks in advance and if I confused anyone..please let me know 🙂

How Can I Get My Dog To Let Me Know He Wants To Go Out?

I’ve a lovely little six month old westie – he’s been a dream so far in house training him but he won’t ever make a sound when he needs to go out.
I was taking him out every hour when he was little to do his business, and he’s been really good – now I know the signs when he needs to go out so I open the door and he goes no problem. The only issue being that if I don’t notice he needs to go out as I’m busy on something else then he won’t make a sound to let me know! He’s not at all a vocal dog, he hardly makes any sound! We’ve not had many accidents at all so far so I’m not complaining, but I’d love to know of any tips in solving this situation.
Any ideas please?

West Highland White Terrier, Considering Getting One Need To Know Some More?

I’ve researched for the past few weeks and think i’ve got pretty much the gist of them.
My German Shepherd of 8 years past away just two months ago, and im not getting one of these cute pups till im VERY informed.
Ima a dog nut not just some kid wanting a cute puppy.
I understand they are a terrier breed and will have the terrier temperament though i need some questions answered;
•Would it be okay in a fenced in yard [aware of hole digging] while im at school? Or a crate. Either way he would be secure, but i don’t want him developing anxiety from that time.
•Are they easy to house train?
•I’ve heard so many misconceptions of how to groom them, and that they tend to have loads of allergies like pugs, is this true?
•In the summer, i have a church camp im going to attend to for 2 weeks. There will be family at home, but are they more of a one person dog or a family dog?
• If theres any dog you would like to recomend me please do so. I do want something smaller than 30lbs, and i cant have a Chihuahua or a Dachshund. I’ve had several toy and terrier breeds before so this isn’t new to me. I’ve took many quizzes, called lots of breeders, and did research on akc about these pups, But really if theres ANYTHING i need to know dont hesitate to tell me im more than willing to listen.
Thanks in advance!
[Yes i asked this question last night, but im really serious about getting one and i want to know as much as i can.]

Can Anyone Tell If They Know Roughly How Many Pups A West Highland White Terrier May Have In Her Litter?

the average litter is between 3 and 5 but my westie had 7 puppies in october last year, She was just on 18 months old and it was her first litter so it was quite a surprise when she had seven as she did not look that big. good luck hopes eveything goes well

Does Anyone Know Where I Can Find A Quality Breed West Highland White Terrier Puppy In Munster Region, Ireland

We’re looking to find a westie pup around the Munster region in Ireland, but we are willing to travel a bit if necessary. As there’s already a male in residence we think there’d be less hassle if we introduced a female puppy. We would need to be able to view the parents to see their temperament, their skin condition, etc. It’s a combination thank-you and birthday prezzie for July for a very special friend and relative. Unfortunatley I haven’t a clue where to begin. I’ve looked through local papers and tried finding some on the internet with no success. Can somebody please point me in the right direction? (also any tips on what to look out for when viewing would be great as I wouldn’t really know myself!) Thanks a million…
