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.

Annual cost of owning a Westiepoo puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Westiepoos true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

I recently lost my 16 year old Westie. I also had a Yorkiepoo growing up. She was a sickly dog that my vet gave us, she grew out of it and lived to be 14. I guess my question is what characteristics does a Westipoo have? My little Westie refused to go outside to pee until she was almost three(and this with an in house obedience training course) I persevered and one day the light just dawned. I just don't want to go through that again. Is it harder to train this mix than other breeds?

The West Highland White Terrier can be difficult to house train. While the Yorkshire Terrier and Poodle tend to be a little easier with house training. Anytime there is a mix of breeds, the puppy could take after both dam and sire very differently. It could be a 50/50 split, or the puppy could have all the negative qualities of both breeds or all the positives. You never know what you'll get. If you are concerned, it is best to contact a breeder and visit with their adult dogs and ask them questions. Also ask for references and speak to other puppy owners about their house training adventure.

Do Westiepoos have a lot of health problems? Do they have problems with skin irritation and rashes? Are they good with children between the ages of 3 and 9? Is there any other breed information you can provide me so I can learn more about the Westiepoo?

Health problems are mainly from poor diet, not enough or too much exercise and breeding. So make sure the dam and sire of your puppy are both healthy and have gone through health tests. Especially if you are paying over $500.00 for a mixed breed dog. They can have skin problems if fed a poor quality food. The mix is said to be really good with children as long as they are supervised so that a child does not frighten or injure the puppy. These are spunky little dogs that need a lot of attention and don't do well left alone all day. If your family goes off to work and school during the week, make sure your Westiepoo has a doggy day care to go to as well, so he/she is not left alone all day long.

I have a Westiepoo, about 3 years old, he does not have any health problems and is fantastic with children of all ages (including babies, which is surprising to me). He requires a LOT of exercise though, so I wouldn't recommend this breed to you if you can't commit to regular walks/ exercise (I walk him a total of 4 miles per day at minimum). He also exhibits a lot of the terrier instincts, namely hunting small critters like rats, mice, voles, squirrels, lizards. So if that is something that turns you off of the breed, I wouldn't recommend them, but if you have a rodent problem the Westiepoo will likely be perfect!

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