Westhighland Terrier "Enno"

Product 24 of 48

Genetic analysis have shown that the dog started developing from the wolf about 135.000 years ago. Yet it is highly unlikely that the wolvess were simply domesticated. Contrary to dogs they loose their tameness when they become young grown ups. It is assumed that there had been some wolves that were more trusting and thus dared to go near the upcoming settlings of men. They discovered this way an ecological niche, because there always had been some leftovers. Thus the more trusting wolves had a selective benefit and over thousands of years they evolved into their own species: The dog. Humans were able to breed these for special purposes and thus ensured their survival and expansion.
One of these purposes was known in Ancient Egypt already: Hunting.

The westhighland terrier too was originally bred for hunting, as the name implies in the Scottish high lands. There its white fur was a special feature, continually bred in this race for aesthetic reasons. Still this fur is very hardy and its double layer protects the dog well against wind and weather. Westies, as they are also often called, were also used as watchdogs due to their pronounced protective instinct. This makes them very devoted and suitable for families.

Our plush version "Enno" is equally soft and cozy as its living relative "Westie". It is a wonderful playmate, friendly and charming, fast and brave, awake and self-confident. In short: A great playing companion in the children's room or a nice exhibit in the living room.
