Maine Isle Westies Adoption Policy West Highland Terriers are our passion. Therefore we take great care in placing a Maine Isle Westie in a loving, well-cared-for environment where their well-being is a top priority. As a dedicated West Highland Terrier breeder, each puppy is hand raised and receives attention from the minute they are born. Maine Isle Westies receive enrichment from adults, children, cats, and other West Highland Terriers to ensure they are well-socialized. Per AKC guidelines, West Highland Terrier puppies stay with us until they are eight weeks old; this ensures a strong immune system and time for socialization. All Maine Isle Westies are guaranteed to be healthy at the time of adoption.
