Barry is a doll. He is 100% Westie with a delightful Westie personality. Confident, happy, playful, sweet natured and very good with other dogs. He has lots of personality – always happy and thrilled to see anyone who visits. He is a little doll. Barry is with us because he has a small cosmetic flaw that you can even see. Be, that is why he is with us and looking for you.
Low to no shed, great coat - information on this great breed is below. If Snow Barry is the guy for you…
Go to our website Takeafriendhome.org and click on the link to the application or call 573-889-9691 or Cynthea 573-714-4232. You can email us at email@example.com. We are in St. Louis every weekend for an adoption event and delivery. If you are in the area, your pup can go home on Saturday. Check our Facebook Page for our weekend schedule.
Housetrained? At this age, your pup can only be as housetrained as you are. Babes can’t reach the door handle and the yard is very big! The key to success with housetraining is: A crate, going out with your pup, praise, and expect more of yourself than you do of your dog. Housetraining tips are in your adoption packet.
Being all of 14 weeks, Barry has had his “Rites of Passage” and has been neutered and had his rabies vaccine. All other vaccines are current.
Adoption Fees and Payment Plans: We take credit cards and checks. Payments can be arranged with a credit card. As with all of our adoptions, we know it is hard to get married on a blind date... even to a wonderful pup. We will take our dog back during the first month and refund your adoption fee less $75. To hold a pup, we ask for a $50 non-refundable deposit if delivery is not made during the same week.
About the breed: Often known as the "Westie," the West Highland White Terrier possesses the classic terrier temperament: active, spunky, energetic, and self-important! These little guys are confident and will stand their ground, regardless of the size of the other dog.
Westies love to bark, and are fairly loud for their size, which makes them an excellent watch dog. However, they are easygoing, friendly, and might try to lick a robber's face. Westies are good with other dogs, but have been bred to chase small prey, so usually are not very good with cats. (They also may play too roughly to be safe with really small dogs.) Putting a Westie into a household with a pet bird, hamster, rabbit, or other small animal is not a good idea. Though a Westie is small, he won't need much pampering and is more than happy to go for a walk in the rain, splashing mud puddles up onto his white fur. Westies are very intelligent and need to be kept stimulated so they don't get into trouble. They enjoy daily walks, and most enjoy swimming. Some Westies enjoy a game of fetch -- some don't. When well supervised, Westies will be fine with polite and gentle children. However, Westies get nervous around toddlers who run at them, pat them roughly, or pull their ears or tail. Sometimes the squealing and giggling of a young child will remind a Westie of its prey. Because a Westie likes to be in charge, he might act bossy around kids. Many breeders recommend Westies only go to homes with children over ten years of age. Westies are entertaining, active, happy, loving, and busy dogs who make great travel companions, because they like to be on the go.
