  • Photo of Tibetan Terrier

    The adaptable, affable Tibetan Terrier is a great choice for the dog owner whose idea of exercise is a walk around the block. Although the long coat can be challenging to care for, it is well worth the effort when admirers stop during a stroll to ooh and ahh over this dog.

  • Photo of Toy Fox Terrier

    Toy Fox Terriers love to curl up in a lap, but can be up and running when a bird flies by the window. They're curious, always wanting to know what's going on and to be part of the action.

  • Photo of Treeing Walker Coonhound

    On the hunt, Treeing Walkers are alert, intense, and loud, sounding off with their big coonhound bawl. But don’t let that fool you; at home they are calm, affectionate, and great lovers of pillows and blankets.

  • Photo of Vizsla

    The Vizsla is a Hungarian pointer, utilized by the Magyar nomadic tribe along with their falcons, to hunt birds and track game. They need a lot of vigorous activity, but as long as they get it, they are gentle enough to lie quietly by Grandpa's feet as he snoozes.

  • Photo of Weimaraner

    The streamlined, steel-gray Weimaraner (Weim) was bred to sustain long hours of hunting birds and even large animals. A great companion for runners or agility enthusiasts, the Weim is ready for any physical activity.

  • Photo of Welsh Springer Spaniel

    The Welsh Springer is a hunter at heart, and thrives on days spent in the field. But he's equally at home playing with the kids or snoozing by the fire. He's an easygoing, affectionate fellow that is more of a one-family dog than are most spaniels, steady with his family but aloof, even a bit shy, around strangers.

  • Photo of Welsh Terrier

    These sociable, merry dogs are curious, spunky and – like most terriers – utterly fearless. Owners with a good sense of humor - and, perhaps, earplugs - are in the best position to appreciate the virtues of this talkative canine clown.

  • Photo of West Highland White Terrier

    Like most terriers, Westies love to chase things and could get scrappy with other dogs, but the West Highland White Terrier is among the more trusting and gregarious of the Scottish terriers.

  • Photo of Whippet

    Most Whippets are quiet, gentle, and well-behaved inside the house, and love to join their people on the couch (and to keep the couch warm when their people aren't sitting on it!). They're friendly to visitors – no watchdog here – and aren't afraid to show how much they adore their owners.

  • Photo of Wire Fox Terrier

    The Wire Fox Terrier could be the canine incarnation of an anti-depressant. This merry little chap lives to play and likes nothing better than to make some mischief. And while he is on the smallish side, he has got the courage and tenacity of dogs twice his size.
