I believe that no matter what kind of dog you get, you have to be mentally prepared and do some research on the breed before getiing one. Westies are all I have had for the past 20 years and I will have more if anything happens to Buddy or Beauregard. Yes, they have a mind of their own but you have to be stern and be the "Alpha Dog" from the very beginning. They are wonderful pets and 1 of mine definitely is a lap dog. You must be prepared for a non forgetting, persistent, loving, animal when you get a Westie.
