West Highland White Terriers, also fondly known as Westies, have a sweet face along with most of the usual terrier traits such as friendliness, self-confidence, and independence. Westies are a very loyal breed that will form a close bond with their owners. As good watchdogs, this pair of Westie bookends will protect even as they serve as functional art while giving literary support to your favorite books. Bookends serve as punctuation marks in a library, showcasing your canine interest and will add character to any room, shelf, or credenza. Hand-crafted in heavyweight foundry cast iron exclusively for Design Toscano, these West Highland White Terrier sculptural bookends are then hand painted and distressed just enough to replicate a true antique.
