"This is Ted D. Mason (aka Tatertot), a West of Argyll. Dad was a Beagle. Mom was a Westie. They fell in love and had cute babies! Ted has the best temperament of any dog I have ever owned. He's sweet and gentle and very patient. He loves to swim, run and roll in gross, smelly things."
The West of Argyll Terrier is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Beagle and the Westie. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
