Looking to purchase or adopt a puppy but I’m not quite sure where to look.
I know the can have skin problems
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 🙂
Either through word of mouth – ask owners of the breed where they got their dog from and if they were happy everything and feel free to ask questions that you feel are important – are the puppies homereared etc? The most reliable place to get a list of reliable breeders would probably be through the Kennel Club
Yes they are double coated so they shed a bit. Usually not hypo due to the fact the majority are prone to serious skin issues & allergies. If you buy one do plenty of research on the breed & investigate the breeder & be certain allergies & bad skin are not in the lineage of either dog.
My pup is about six months old, and his ears haven’t propped up yet…does that mean they never will? I’ve read that they usually begin to prop up at about the fourth month, so that worries me because hes actually seven months old now that I think of it. I would greatly appreciate it if someone who has a slight inclination to answer please do so, or if you know a lot about dogs… Thank You.
He is 7 months old. He has no problems with me, my mom or my dad. I would say that mom and dad do the bulk of taking care of him. I do my fair share. He is extremely loving with me and my mom and dad but with my sister, he growls at her quite often and “snapped” at her today for trying to move him over from the couch where she was.
He is a male. My sister is 17 so it is not like she is a child either. She plays with him every so often but I don’t think she has ever taken him out on walks and stuff. I get the feeling that he either does not respect her as much or does not trust her.
Regardless, I do not want him snapping or growling like that at anyone. I am particularily concerned if strangers or little kids come to my house. How can I make sure that this does not happen with my sister again?
