Annie, a patient of our animal hospital, is an adorable Westie, who recently saved her owner from a fire. Annie’s owner was in the bathroom when Annie began jumping up at the door and barking. When the owner investigated, she noticed the kitchen on fire. Dr. Toles of Animal Health Services, St Catharines, is not surprised by the dogs reaction. The West Highland White Terrier is a game and hardy little terrier that is easy to train. It is fairly friendly toward strangers and gets along well with children. They are lively and extremely self-assured toward other dogs. Robust, friendly and spirited, Westies just love companionship. Despite their size, they make a very good watchdog.
