Testimonials

Hi Diane,

We are so happy with Rosie (formerly Brandy) our new Papillon puppy. We were a little hesitant to pick a puppy online but after talking with Diane we were more comfortable. Since she was a Chrismas present it was so nice of you to send an updated picture before the holiday so we could show her to her new mom. She was thrilled Santa was getting her a baby of her own. We came to visit her at 5 weeks of age. We were impressed with the kennel, it was clean and all the dogs looked great. We got to meet her mom and dad. If we could of we would have taken her brothers and sister too (lol). Everyone we met was very nice. We even got to watch a puppy being born. At 7 weeks we came back to get her. She had a bath and the paper work went quick. We took Rosie to our vet and she was given a clean bill of health. He was impressed at how healthy and happy she was. She is now almost 11 weeks old and weighs 3 pounds(hopefully you can open the attachment).She is happy and healthy and very spoiled. We have two older papillons and Rosie just follows them around. We think she is the smartest puppy we ever had. We would highly recommend The Happy Woofer to any one looking to add to thier family . Over all it was a great experience.

Thanks so much,

Peggy McAlister and family

Holmes, Pennsylvania

Coat

Double-layered with a topcoat that is rough and hard and a soft, short undercoat. The color is always white.

Character

Also commonly referred to as the Westie, this breed is a boisterous, playful, alert, and independent breed. It is very extroverted and can be stubborn.

Temperament

The West Highland White Terrier needs to be trained at a young age not to try to dominate other dogs or chase cats. If you have children, it makes a good playmate because it can handle rough play.

Care

The coat must stay hard so it is not recommended that it be washed too frequently. If the dog gets dirty, the hair should be allowed to dry and then be brushed out. The coat needs to be hand-plucked twice a year.

Activity

This dog loves to run around, play with balls, and just have a good time. In spite of its diminutive size, it does need a lot of exercise. It will try to wander off, so a well-fenced yard is required.

Description

The West Highland White Terriers are one of the most popular breeds of small dogs today. They are well-balanced and exhibit good showmanship. They have beautiful, shiny white coats and bright, button eyes, shaggy eyebrows and a black nose. They are intelligent dogs, learn quickly, love human companionship and will play indoors or out. They make excellent companions for children of all ages. They also rank the highest among terriers as a hunter of small animals.
