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!

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.

We have a Westie/Poodle/Jack Russell Mix, and we just love this dogs to bits. The father was a white JR and very calm, the mother was the Westie/Poo. The dog is adorable and everyone loves him. He is 4 years of age and definitely is a family member. Rescue dogs are great, but one never knows their temperament. A neighbor of ours had a rescue dog that attacked our dog for no reason and we had serious vet bills that the other owner had to pay. We have our dogs glands done about every six weeks, and overall, this is the best dog we have had. Love a Mutt!

We have a 10 month old Westipoo. We got her when she was 7 weeks old. We used a bell hung by the stairs leading to the door and everytime we took her out to do her business we made her ring the bell. She caught on very quickly and she did not have any accidents after that. Maybe try that if you can. We also have been doing obedience classes and now she is comfortable around other dogs. She does growl a little but will never bite. Hopefully she gets past that soon. Good luck - try the bell.

The BEST dog in the world, and even though this happens, I wouldn't trade her for anything, but boy is it awful. It has gotten to where we have to take her to get them expressed every month. She is 4 years old now and this has happened since she was a puppy, we thought she'd grow out of it, tried everything imaginable because we looked it up online. We thought she had stopped, hadn't done it since Auguse, YAY!, but yesterday....UGH. Any thoughts or same issues?

We were told to add a table spoon of canned pumpkin to Rudty's hard food and it increases their fiber, firms up their poop which forces them to push harder when they have to poo.. Rusty use to have a smelly fish butt and after a few extractions and a canned pumpkin diet we no longer smell him... Good luck they are the sweetest dogs ever!!!

We are fostering a westipoo,and she seems to be snappy at our cats and other dogs.She is obsessed with the female guardian in every family she has been to.Is there a way to get her to love other animals or are we going to have to adopt her out to a family with no pets.She is a very sweet dog i am going to get her shaved up to try and make her look a little more appealing.Her previous family let all her facial hair get matted,and the knots are making her head appear to be really red.We bathed her with the soothing shampoo and she did stop scratching her back-cause she did have it bleeding.She attacks our cheweenie that is a foster dog also-she has found a home-but i don't want the westi to beat her up.I did have them in the house,but the westi had to go to the outdoor kennel cause she couldn't get along at all with anyone else.She doesn't bond to other animals.(at all)the kittens are afraid of her.Do your westipoo's seemed to be thirsty all the time?

We own a westipoo that I have raised from a puppy and he is the kindest, gentlest dog you could imagine. We have 3 cats and 4 dogs and they all get along well. All animals, cats and dogs alike, need to know who is the boss (that being YOU). A Westipoo is half terrier, so you have to establish a firm but loving hand with them. Once they know, they respect and mind you. Giving and withholding treats is a great way to train. If your Westipoo growls at another animal, tell her "No" and place her in her cage for a time out. I hope this helps. Do know that an animal is only as good as it's owner. If it has been mistreated or spoiled, it will take much time and persistence to undo the bad behavior learned. You have to determine whether you have the time and desire to retrain the dog. Westipoos are very intelligent, sweet dogs by nature.

We have a Kone that we fill with a type of dog food which is a bit like pate, or you could use peanut butter or the special pate that you can get for the Kone. We give it to our westipoo when we put him in his crate as we leave the house....he doesnt know we have gone!

Take heart...my westiepoo also was very bad about nipping at our hands when he was a young pup. Very seldom now (he is 2 yrs.) - only when he is overly excited. I too give him a treat when he goes in his crate. Your puppy will imitate your emotions - if you act sorry and apologetic for putting him in his crate, he will play on that. My Jimi recognizes yhe words "I'll be right back" and settles down very contentedly. Try putting her in her crate with a treat while you are home. She should learn to consider her crate as her haven.

I have a 10 week old who is VERY energetic and likes to pinch. You must remember this is only a playful sign and not aggresive. Make sure your pup has plenty of chew toys and noisy toys to play with. if mine nips i just say a firm NO which he understands and divert his attention with a toy. He has puppy teeth and until his adu;lt teeth come through (16 weeks ) he will continue this. I do not leave mine in a crate as he is well behaved on his own with his toys and he generally sleeps. I make sure when i am going out i say bye so he knows im going out, when i go to bed i say night.

My westiepoo very easily house trained! Would hold his pee in all through the night, just would take him out right before bed and then would have to take him out as soon as we woke up because he wouldn't hold it much longer after getting up and being about. Also, only had accidents if someone played with him and got him super excited and it had been awhile since the last time we took him out. Now that he's not a puppy anymore, he can hold it for ten hours!
