Wife texted me this morning saying she wanted a Westie. She grew up with dogs like this and her parents one is a really sweet dog. Would also be a fun little companion for Tucker. I just started looking at breeders. Its so cliche but has anyone ever given a puppy for Christmas? My only idea against it is there is probably too much going on that day for the new puppy.
Any reputable breeder will not sell you a Christmas puppy. Just buy the supplies, wrap them up, give them to her and wait until after Christmas to get a new dog.
Yeah initially it was an idea that popped into my head, but its way too much for a new puppy.
I always wanted a Westie, too. I found a website through the AKC.org site I think, that had a quiz entitled "Is a Westie for you?". I failed miserably. Found out this was not the dog for me.
I like Betsy's idea. If you find a breeder before XMas and are put on a waiting list, you could always print out the breeders site with the litter info too.

Just remember Westies are terriers. They can be difficult for the average person to train.

I know a Westie who killed a very sweet 4 month old Bichon puppy. They are terriers but I call them terrorists. They are not for me.
My daughter has two Westies. They are 3 years old now and I am just now beginning to really like them! The male is a sweetheart, but if you look up diva in the dictionary you will find a picture of the female.
Too bad you don't live in my neck of the woods. There's a very reputable breeder here, with pups ready now.

Thank you, excellent second post.Originally Posted by Pickle Creek
Or something wrong with the westie's owner for letting this happen.Originally Posted by deezeldog
I own and grew up with terriers and I agree that they're not for everyone. How old is Tucker? How well trained is he? Westie pups are quite small and a bouncy young lab could hurt one very quickly.
