Rare breed

By Jacklyn Yeong

Finn is a lively and intelligent West Highland white terrier and Coton de Tulear mix.

The unusual crossbreed, also known as a Weston, is one-of-a-kind in Australia.

“Finn’s breeder was a pure breeder of westies and Coton de Tulear,” Finn’s owner Roz explained. “The crossbreed was an accident the breeder did not expect, six puppies came from that litter.”

At just 10 months old, Finn loves to mix and mingle with other dogs. He is constantly looking for new friends to play with and would run in circles just to attract the attention of other dogs.

Finn has a best friend called Fidel who lives in the same apartment building. He would recognise Fidel from afar and bark excitedly whenever he sees his best friend.

Roz also pointed out that Finn is always on a “treasure hunt” for things to chew on during his daily walks.

“He likes chewing on things, sticks, roots, you name it,” she said. “He loves chewing on plastic water bottles and then crushing them. I will always pick up what remained and throw it in the bin.”

Although just a puppy, Finn has already had plenty of stand-offs with cockatoos and swans!
