Mark Wayne, New Jersey 3/17/2014 10:06:39 PM I watched my parents with there Westie, they loved him from beginning to end. However, I've never seen such a headstrong dog! He'd bite the tops of my wife's shoes, [bows] off. He always had a terrible skin condition, no matter how many times my parents brought him to the vet.I went on in life to purchase a Sheltie, great character, loving, highly intelligent, and a true companion to everyone in the family. He is the king of the family, and why not? Having grown up with dogs, this dog is the best!
