Most Westies are quite small, approximately 28 cm in height and weighing in at roughly 7-10 kg. You can expect to spend around 14 wonderful years with your Westie bestie.

Loving them back

Westies love having their coat brushed and will need that done at least two or three times a week. They also love a bath so give them a scrub once a month. Plus make sure you keep them happy with daily walks, fun indoor games and great quality dog food.
