What dog breeds are similar to a Westie?

My father would like a "westie" (west highland white terrier). My family is ok with that, but the dog has to be adopted, and be at a young age. I went online, and there wasn't a dog in our area with the age preference that we want. If anyone knows a breed or breeds that are quite similar with the "westie" tell me!

      I’m sorry that the Westie you wanted was adopted. Here are some that look like it:

      Australian Terrier
      Cairn Terrier – often mistaken as West Highland White Terrier
      Norwich Terrier
      Skye Terrier – Somewhat similar
      Silky Terrier

      These are the only similar appearance breeds in the AKC registry.

      Good luck!

      In that family you can also find Scots terriers and Cairn terriers. The schnauzer family is sort of similar, but a different breed..you can look at mini schnauzers, Brussels Griffon terriers. Westies are great dogs…why don’t you go a little out of your area or wait until one comes available. Try Westie Rescue with your zip code. Good luck.
