I adore West Highland Terriers. And it's not just because of their pretty white coats and fox-like pointy ears; these little guys are small and scrappy! Westies are known for being very strong willed and quite the self-confident creatures. I've rounded up some photos of this beautiful breed. Sneak a peek and take part in the Westie wonderment.
