Overview
The Westiepoo is created by the crossing of two breeds: West Highland White Terrier and Poodle. They are commonly referred to as a "designer dog" and have become popular as companions due to their hypoallergenic coats.
Character
Hardy and well-balanced, the Westiepoo is of medium size. They possess an appealing expression, are compact, agile, and sturdy in appearance.
Temperament
The Westiepoo is spunky, lively, and clever. They are affectionate, loving, and family oriented. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. If they become lonely or bored they will become destructive and bark incessantly. Westiepoo's do best in a home with older, considerate children. They generally do well with dogs or other household pets they have been raised with. They are typically non-aggressive but may be snappish when irritated. The Westiepoo makes a good watchdog as they will bark to alert their family to visitors or out of the ordinary sounds.
Care
Regular brushing is recommended for the Westiepoo. Bathing should only be done when necessary using a mild shampoo. They may be prone to such health issues as liver disease, chronic skin problems, PRA, and epilepsy.
Coat
The coat of the Westiepoo is wavy, light-weight, and soft.
Training
Early socialization and obedience is recommended. The Westiepoo may be difficult to housetrain. The crate training method works best. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
The Westiepoo is well-suited for apartment living provided they are sufficiently exercised. They enjoy securely leashed walks, family activities, and off-lead play in a securely fenced yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Westiepoo puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

What chronic skin conditions can Westiepoo's get

Chronic skin conditions are genetic. If you plan on getting a Westipoo, then contact your breeder and make sure that the sire and dam are free of skin problems.

We throughly enjoy our 3 year old Madi! She does not shed, although she loves running around outside, rolling in the grass (and sometimes fertilizing manure!). She is easy to brush but does need a bath and clipping (self taught) about every 3-4 weeks! Great, friendly, easy to train member of the family!

A grain-free, high quality puppy food is the best thing to feed your dog. Some brands to look at are Acana, Origjn, Taste of the Wild, Life Mates, Now and Go!

Westipoo's would not make it that far if you are racing. Maybe 1/2 mile.Then Walk 1/2 mi. then 1/2 mi. trot in.

Westipoos are very small dogs, with short legs. Although they are extremely energetic and love to run and play, I would not want to submit our 3 year old to a 5 K run. For them it would be similar to a 15-20 K run, given their short statue and legs. May wish to ask your vet, due to risks of trying to keep up with you. Remember an average stride for a runner is 3-5 feet, making it about 10-12 strides for your little dog! May be too much!

My 8 year old,female Westiepoo has had one about with the anal gland. She was chewing constantly. I took her to my vet and she diagnosed it right. She also had a couple of fleas which increased her scratching. Vet gave her predisone and a anti biotic for 2 weeks. I just took her back to the vet and her gland was normal. I just changed her flea and heart worm med. She is now on revolution ,topical which does it all.

I got him when he was 6 weeks and was only 1.5 LBS, the man I got him from said he will only be around 10-12 pounds. He is now 5 months and is 7.5 LBS. Do you think he is going to stay between 10-12 pounds? Thanks :)

My westipoo is three years old and weighs about twelve pounds. I looked on line when I got her and it said to feed her 3/4 of a cup twice daily and she stays fit and does fine with that. I absolutely love her. She is affectionate, spunky and very intelligent... My first dog and my best friend!
