The West Highland White Terrier Club of Greater New York was founded in 1970 by a core group of West Highland White Terrier enthusiasts who have evolved into a group of dedicated owners, serious minded breeders, and last but not least, loyal friends, both human & canine. All have a common interest at heart which is the betterment of the breed according to the AKC Standards.
The West Highland White Terrier Club of Greater New York is a breed Club recognized by the American Kennel Club. The Club is comprised of Westie lovers from the greater New York City area, although we do have a few members from outside our region. Our membership includes show people, breeders and pet owners.
