People claim that owning a pet can be healing, especially if your furry friend is a dog. When I met Sami, I realized that this is true. Before owning Sami, I never knew that life could feel so fulfilled, even in moments when other people were absent and loneliness loomed on the horizon. But now, knowing the joy my westie has brought, I recommend trying out pet ownership to everyone.
Speaking from my own experience, I naturally gravitate towards advising people to get westies.
Westies originally comes from Scotland, and can be distinguished by their stark white fur coats. Being smart dogs, they can quickly become members of your family as they develop a bond with you, your children, and your friends.
You won’t regret bringing home a westie, but if you’re an inexperienced, and intimidated first time pet owner, you can choose a mini version of this terrier, to test out how you fare, and see if you are ready for a bigger dog.
Smaller westies are known as teacup westies, and like other teacup dogs, they are bred to be as tiny as possible. Spunky and adorable, these miniscule creatures look like toys who will steal your heart and become your new best friend in no time!
Plus, if you live somewhere with pet size restrictions, or operate on a tight budget, a teacup westie will be perfect for you because it is small enough to fit most size regulations, and saves you from spending hefty amounts of money on its food.
You will find many teacup westies for sale online. However, commit fully to their welfare before you actually get one, because even though they are tiny, looking after them is a big responsibility! They may be miniature replicas of the highland terrier, but they are just as energetic, and they will definitely take you for a run.
Just like normal sized westies, teacup westies get restless if they are kept stationary in one place too long. They also need tons of exercise and play. Hence, you might find yourself chasing after a dog that jumps onto everything, and runs out the door the moment it opens.
Teacup westies are also curious and passionate about exploring new things. You should cater to this desire and allow them to roam around the house.
However, since they are so tiny, make sure they aren’t exposed to household items that can injure them. Remember, because these dogs have small and fragile bones and organs, they could suffer serious harm if exposed to adverse conditions.
