Westies or more officially West Highlands White Terriers are an adorable breed of dog. Small, smart, loyal, and ferocious, this Scottish breed is all terrier and you won’t forget it if a chipmunk is around.
Here are some highlight photographs from the “Quotable Westie” sessions for the small gift book. Prints are available as well as images printed on tote bags and other products. See the entire portfolio of westie photographs and art work by fine art photographer, Edward M. Fielding by clicking the link below.
Tiki the Westie is a wonderful model who works for kibble. He’ll sit in position under the studio lights until he hears the “ok” and he gets his treat.
A smart dog breed for sure. Knows his name as well as many word commands such as sit, car, ride, walk, dinner, treat, food, tick etc.
Always up for an adventure and places to sniff and explore. Keep this breed on a leash as a random chipmuck can sent them flying off into the woods. And these little dogs are fast on their feet!
The West Highland White Terrier, commonly known as the Westie is a breed of dog from Scotland with a distinctive white harsh coat with a somewhat soft white undercoat. The modern breed is descended from a number of breeding programs of white terriers in Scotland before the 20th century. Edward Donald Malcolm, 16th Laird of Poltalloch, is credited with the creation of the modern breed from his Poltalloch Terrier, but did not want to be known as such.
Westies are often featured In advertising by companies such as Cesar dog food and Scottish whisky Black & White. It is a medium-sized terrier, although with longer legs than other Scottish breeds of terrier. It has a white double coat of fur which fills out the dog’s face, giving it a rounded appearance. The breed can be good with children, but does not always tolerate rough handling. The Westie is an active and intelligent breed, and is social with a high prey drive, as they were once used to hunt rodents.
