About Us

The West Acres is located on a beautiful 220 acre, riverside estate in the heart of northwest Missouri. We have been fortunate enough to call this land home since the spring of 1988.


Along with the occasional roaming puppy, The West Acres is home to a small flock of dorset-suffolk sheep, a single horse, rolling cropland & native grass, and numerous species of wildlife including whitetail deer, red fox, cottontail rabbit, & bobwhite quail. 


As hard as it is to see a puppy leave, it is always comforting to see him or her in a good home, bringing their unique charm to their new families. We would love the opportunity to share the happiness found in these little bundles of joy with you, as they have brought more into our lives at The West Acres than we could ever have imagined.


Please let us know if you have any questions or comments at all!

The West Acres Westies Reviews

"Finlay is an absolute blessing! She is smart, loving, tenacious and everything else I love about Westies. A big part of my summer is spent at the lake and she has taken to the water like a fish. I had to buy her a life jacket for the boats as she wants to jump off right along with the humans and big dogs. She is incredibly social. Unlike my last Westie, who was sweet but shy, Finlay is constantly on a mission for new friends. She loves animals, children, men, women, old, young, anyone that will pay attention and offer an ear scratch."

"What a GREAT smart, loves all people and dogs he meets!"

"My little girl westie is absolutely perfect. She has a beautiful coat, wonderful sweet disposition and is very healthy! I highly recommend The West Acres and in fact, I'm adopting another puppy from them this spring (a little girl). The West Acres far surpasses other breeders in regards to quality of dogs."

"Molly started puppy camp last week and the trainer said she's one of the smartest dogs she's ever met, and she's trained over 3,000 dogs!"
- Ashley, Pheonix, AZ

"We love him dearly. Having a single child, Murphy is my daughter's best friend. My groomer absolutely adores Murphy too and says he’s the prettiest Westie she’s ever groomed, with the perfect personality. He is such a wonderful member of our family. Such a sweetheart. Thank you for your continued commitment to breeding such loving and smart puppies."

"Stu absolutely loves wearing bandannas and has over a dozen of them. It is his look! You should be very proud of him as he is human-like! He is very well known as I have him registered as my support dog and he goes everywhere with me! He is loved at Farm and Fleet, Walmart, the car wash, my husband's work, and the drugstore to name a few! Cleaning ladies come today and they go crazy over him! The guy that mows our yard does not leave until he has seen Stu! He couldn’t be more perfect! Everyone wants them! I thank you daily for the gift of Stu!"

"I cannot tell you very how much we love our West Acres pup, Fergus!! My husband always says, “I’ve been waiting my whole life for a dog like this”! Fergus is the sweetest, most loving, and handsome guy ever." 
- Deanna, Portland, OR

Every day we get outstanding compliments on how beautiful & fun she is! We cannot thank you enough for such a lovely little girl that's been such a delight to our family.
