Westiepoo – The Poodle West Highland White Terrier Mix
The Westiepoo is a breed of dog originated from Scotland. They are white with black markings and have been bred for their beautiful coats which make them look like fluffy snowflakes. They are very popular among pet owners because they don’t shed much and it doesn’t matter if they get wet or not.
They are known to be good with children, but they tend to bark at strangers. They are usually friendly towards other dogs, but may growl when cornered. Their temperament makes them ideal for families where one parent works outside while the other stays home with the kids. These dogs do well in homes where there is plenty of space and toys for them to play with.
There are two types of Westies: the Standard and the Miniature. The standard is larger than the miniature and weighs between 20 to 25 pounds, whereas the mini is smaller than the standard and weighs around 10 to 15 pounds.
Standard Westies are considered a “working” type of dog, although some people prefer them over hunting dogs because they’re less likely to bark at everything that moves. These dogs have a lot of energy and need to be outside a lot, so they’re not ideal for apartment living. They’re also good watchdogs because they alert their owners of any strangers that are around.
Mini Westies, on the other hand, can get along well with children because they are used to being handled and picked up by them. They’re also easy to train so they can be potty trained easier than other dog breeds.
Westie Poo Description
The Westiepoo has a double coat that is medium in length. Their coat is made up of a soft, dense undercoat and straight, fine outer guard hairs that give it a shiny appearance. The coat can be white or cream with black or grey markings around the eyes, ears, cheeks, legs and tail. In some rare cases the markings are blue. There may also be a small patch on their chest.
Their nose is usually black and their eyes are usually a deep brown.
Both Westies and Poodles require regular grooming, so the upkeep for the Westiepoo will be about the same as any other dog. The coat should be brushed on a weekly basis at a minimum and they should be taken to a groomer for regular baths and clipping every 3-4 months. These dogs don’t shed too much, but they will shed more in the Spring and Summer months. Westiepoo’s have a lot of energy and need space to run around, so they are not ideal for apartment living. They should also be taken on long walks and given adequate exercise every day.
The Westiepoo is generally a healthy dog, but there are some health problems that can affect this breed. Some of these include:
