Castle features history of the Scottish West Highland Terrier. The
dog breed was developed here. This Argyll castle no longer exists.
This painting was done entirely from historical research. It tells
the development story of the Duke of Argyll, Campbell family and Colonel
Malcolms in creating this Scottish West Highland Terrier breed
in the 1800s.
text on the painting:
The Scottish West Highland Terrier can be credited
to General Edward Donald Malcolm of Poltalloch and Duke of Argyll
of the Campbells as the originators of the breed in the 1800s. Originally
the dogs were tawny red, black or cream. One of Malcolm's red terriers
was mistaken for a fox and shot. Many years of breeding from white
Cairn, Scottish, and Bedlington Terriers produced the desired qualities
of white coats and speed. The 1907 Crufts dog show officially listed
the 'West Highland White Terrier' breed chosen for their rugged character
hunting small game and area of development. The West Highland White
Terrier Club of America was founded in 1909, as was membership to
the American Kennel Club.
