Gilt Edged Glenveagh
Sire :- Ir & GB Ch Killynether Kavanagh     Dam :- Glenveagh Fortune Cookie
BREEDER :- J Loue. OWNER :- Mrs M Johnston

A small game terrier with a lot of self-esteem and a piercing expression with his black eyes, great fun lover. This breed stems from reject Cairn terriers! Some breeders likes the white and started a seperate breed, eventually establishing the West Highland White as he is today. He needs a lot of work to keep the uncurled, harsh topcoat and soft dense undercoat tidy and trim. The tail is undocked and should be 13-15cms (5-6") long.
Colour is white with black pigmentation.
