The westie stands 10 to 11 inches in the Shoulder, with dark piercing eyes, compact body, along with also a carrot-shaped tail wagging with delight, the Westie’s appearances are irresistible. Beneath the plush-toy exterior, though, is a true working terrier of gameness and courage. Bred to hunt rats and other predators that are underground, Westies are surprisingly strong and tough.
