Good With Dogs:⬛⬛⬛⬛⬜⬜⬜
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.

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!
