The dog we know today comes from the hills of Cardiganshire, that once they were filled with farms and valleys that were perfect for cattle breeding. His predecessors had cattle to market, their heels for cattle moved, and they deviated from the path if cattle drew back.

Industrialization ended the usefulness of the Corgi on the farm, and people began to cross with other dogs herding breeds, including Collies and the first Pomeranian, which they were much larger than the current standard of Pomeranian. The crossing with Collie You may have thrown the blue merle color to the genetic background of the Cardigan.

    History

    The West Highland White Terrier, better known as Westie, is a former Scottish hunting terrier. The little terriers from which the Westie they served humans for many years as watchdogs and hunters. In addition, they made themselves useful in the house every day. Keeping houses free from rats and mice, chasing away a marten or fox that wanted to feed on chickens or pigeons at night, proved helpful helpers at home and in court. The true strength of West Highland White Terrier was active fox hunting, the marten and the otter. The little terrier chased these thieves without fear and with all determination to the farthest corner of his burrow, where they were trying to get them out of the burrow, as the hunters counted. Like his three Scottish brothers, Skye and Cairn Terrier, the West Highland White Terrier he is one of the four descendants of these old men Scottish hunting terrier.

    Like the others, comes from the great gene pool of all those Scottish terriers. Only by intentional breeding, namely, artificial separation, Scotland's four genetically separated lower terrier breeds were born. Your current form as “West Highland White Terrier” It is the result of a breeding led as a companion and exhibition dog of the last 100 years. Until 1924 was raised and led along with the current Cairn-Terrier. The pure white color is the result of a selection of external features from the time of the breeding of the sample. It is an expression of efforts to make these four originally identical siblings increasingly distinguishable from each other.. In 1907 the breed was recognized by the British Kennel Club. It was always a fairly rare breed in Europe. That suddenly changed around 1990.

The nice one Westie became widely known as a means of advertising dog food and later other articles as well. Many people knew him as “the television dog”. He was temporarily better known than the Sausage dog or German Shepherd. The serious breeding scene could not meet the demand for puppies from Westie. This could not be said twice by multipliers from Germany and from all over Europe. Dubious vendors massively selling puppies in the dog market. This was not good for the dog breed, your physical condition and your health. Still today many of these breeders, mostly well disguised as “breed lovers”, frolicking on the Internet.
