How many puppies do west highland white terriers have?
My Westie had a litter of 4 when she was one, she is now 3 and just had a litter of8! Typically, however, "Westies" have a litter size of between 3 and 5 puppies.
'Westie' is the abbreviated name for a dog called a West Highland White Terrier. It's a West Highland White Terrier. West Highland White Terriers are furry coated dogs, with dots for coal black eyes and button noses. Why are West Highland White Terrier puppies sought after by many dog lovers? Because these friendly creatures are well-behaved, loyal and affectionate dogs, who may be pocket sized (average a 10-11 inches tall), but are highly intelligent animals…
West Highland White Terriers shed very minimally,or seemingly not at all. If yours is shedding "a lot" then either: a.) it is not a purered Westie or b.) your Westie has a skin allergy and is losing hair rather than "shedding". (Allergies are common in these dogs...many times it's their food they are reacting to, but see a vet to be certain.)
As Dobermanns are quite big dogs the puppies are likely to be quite large. As Staffordshire Bull Terriers are relatively small there are likely to be only a few large puppies. Therefore, even if your Staffy grows very large during pregnancy it will probably still only be a few puppies, probably around 4 to 6. Of course, as they are crossbreds it is hard to be sure.
By one year old their fur should be full. Like many very furry breeds, Westies do go through an "uglies" stage where it seems like they will never be in full coat, especially the thick ruff of hair around the face seems to come about slowly. But do not worry!! The fur WILL come in and your Westie will be in beautiful full snow-white coat by one year in age.

There are four total types of Bull Terriers. There are two sizes, which are the Bull Terrier [Standard] and the Miniature Bull Terrier. Then there are two color types, which are "Colored' and "White". So ultimately, there can be a White or Colored Standard Bull Terrier, or a White or Colored Miniature Bull Terrier, resulting in four total types. :)
Because pitbulls are terriers, and all terriers are naturally dog-aggressive. Whether it's a Boston Terrier, or a Jack Russell, or a pit, they almost all have issues with other dogs. Obviously this is a spectrum, where some are more tolerant than others. Terriers tend to be less dog-aggressive as puppies, with many becoming less tolerant as they mature (especially if you don't spay/neuter!).
No. A Boston Terrier's tail length should be preferably a quarter of the distance from set-on to hock. Answer: Boston terriers have log tails when born, but many have the tail amputated (docked) to a shorter length when they are still puppies. This is done (according to owners) to prevent balls of fecal matter from becoming stuck to the tail hair. Many dogs have appearance standards calling for docked tails.
