Westies love to sleep with someone. I have never raised a westie that bites or snaps. I have had families allow the dogs to boss them around as puppies and they could become snappy, but its been very rarely, and always someone who has allowed the puppy to do what it wants when it wants from the begining. To have a terrier, any terrier (plus many other types of dogs too) you need to be the alpha, not the dog. Watch Cesar Milan "The Dog Wisperer" on TV. They are very easy to train, fun and very loving. They are smart enough to train you if your not careful. The Art of Raising a Puppy, by the Monks of New Skeet is an excellent book on training or any breed of dog.
