Just Jack!

Now presenting…… Just Jack!

Jack is a bunch of awesome in a small package! He has a sweet disposition and is absolutely loving life! He is between 1 – 3 years old (probably closer to the younger side based on his puppy behavior!). While Jack is working on becoming the perfect companion, he will need some consistency in his home… he knows how to “work the system” and take advantage of any change in the rules.🙂 He is very smart and easy to correct; however, he is a terrier, after all!

Jack has a very soft coat that will need regular grooming. He loves to be by your side regardless of the activity. Want to go for a walk – ok! Want to rest a bit – works for him!

Jack is good with children but should be in a home with kids who understand how to respect and treat animals. Jack does guard resources (toys and food) from other dogs. He gets along well with other dogs but does like to slightly dominant. It is important that Jack and any other dog companions understand their humans are the top dogs – not them.

Jack can be a bit of an escape artist… he is learning to wait patiently at the door to go outside. He also knows how to use a pet door and can be trusted in the house if given access to the doggie door.

Jack is an active, young dog that is interested in learning new things. If you are looking for a great dog interested in being an active part of your life, Jack is the companion you’ve been looking for!

Dainty Dottie!

Dottie update 8.30.17

When I arrived at LSWR, I was in terrible shape.  I had ear and eye infections and my skin and coat were in bad shape.  Despite not feeling well, the entire vet staff said I was so very sweet and such a trooper to go through all the vetting exams.  Fast forward to today and take a good look at me now!

My infections are pretty much gone and my coat is coming back.  It is amazing what TLC, medicated baths, excellent vet care, and a healthy diet can do for a gal like me.  Now that I’m better, I’m going to have a dental very soon.  Then it won’t be long before I join a very lucky family to call me their very own.  You won’t believe how incredibly sweet I am until you meet me.  I am a very happy girl and very soon I’m going to make a family VERY HAPPY!

XOXO Dottie

 

 

This post is about a new intake named Dottie. Dottie won’t be writing this post herself 🙂, her foster mama is going to! I’m taking this one over because Dottie wouldn’t do herself justice and compliment herself as profusely as I am about to!

I had the pleasure of welcoming Dottie into my home this past Friday, and I must say – she may be the sweetest, most gentle Westie I have ever met.

Dottie is a Westie/Poo mix. Unfortunately, her owner became unable to properly take care of Dottie, so she surrendered her to LSWR. Dottie is 8 years old, potty trained, is comfortable with a crate (though she loves to sleep in bed and snuggle!), walks like a perfect little lady on a leash and she is great with other dogs once they’ve established who gets to be the alpha! She’s a playful girl (loves playing with her foster brother & sister) and adores belly rubs, as you’ll see from the pics!

Dottie does currently have some skin/allergy issues that are being addressed. She has already started medication to clear up her belly area and let some of that soft, white fur grow in! In just a few days, she is looking 10 times better!

If you’re ready for your furever buddy, Dottie is ready for you!

Gentle Jazzie

Jazzie update 8.30.17

We want to share some wonderful news on Jazzie.  Fast forward to today and Jazzie has made great improvements.  As you can tell from her recent pictures, her skin is healing her hair is growing back.  She loves her foster buddy, Scout and loves to run along with him chasing birds, squirrels and anything that steps foot in their year.

We are grateful Jazzie has made a remarkable recovery and continues making daily progress.  LSWR will cater to all her needs and show her the love and kindness she so deserves.  Jazzie is going to make a great Westie companion to a very special family.

 

We are relieved that Jazzie is now in our foster care program where she will get everything she needs.  Her owner’s life crumbled right before her very eyes, and it is apparent Jazzie spent her life in a neglectful situation.

Jazzie spent her first first five days with LSWR getting vetted, receiving good meals and medicated baths.  She is now in her foster home with two Westie companions, who are helping her feel right at home.  Despite her neglectful past, Jazzie is a very sweet Westie.  She gets very excited on her evening walks and keeps up with her Westie pals.  She is running and barking along with her foster buddies and loves to come home to get her spa baths.  She is a doll!!  She allows her foster mom to soak her for 10-15 minutes in the medicated baths, never complaining or even trying to get out of the tub.  We believe Jazzie will make a full recovery as she is making daily progress.  LSWR will cater to all her needs and show her the love and kindness she so deserves.

Jazzie is spayed and estimated to be about 10 years.  Once we get her skin issues under control, she will receive a much needed dental.  Please stay tuned for more updates on her progress.

Welcome to rescue life Jazzie – you are a sweet and gentle survivor!

Elegant Ellie

My name is Ellie! I am a very young and healthy pup, estimated to be about 2 1/2 years old. I’m spayed, microchipped and current on all my shots. Unfortunately, my family’s home life circumstances changed due to children joining the household and they decided to surrender me to LSWR so they can find me a new home.  I must admit the 4 children stress me out.  I had a doggie companion and I got along ok with my furry friend but I must tell you I would prefer to be the only pet.  That’s just how I roll.

I am a cutie patootie and love human companions. I have a wonderful personality, love to play, love being around my people, enjoy playing with squeaky toys, squirrels, I love them all!  I walk great on a leash and I am very well mannered.

I am looking for a loving family who I can shower with love and kisses and a family who has time for me.  I want a family that loves me to pieces!  I am just that kinda girl. I promise to be your best companion and fill your heart with love and laughter. I know I will steal your heart and you will love me FOREVER!! Please visit lswr.us to complete an online application and ask for Ellie.

XOXO Ellie
           

Jolly Jezzy! **ADOPTED**

Introducing Jolly Jezzy!

My name is Jezzy and I am a 10 year old, spayed female Westie. I came to rescue because my loving mom of 10 years is moving to a memory care facility. She and I have lived together since I was 8 weeks old. She has taken great care of me. My mom’s family called LSWR in hopes of finding me a new family. You see, they only want the very best for me!

Let me tell you a little bit about me. As you can tell from my picture, I am as cute as a button! I walk great on a leash and love my furry plush/stuffed toys. I can certainly tell you I am a sweet typical Westie girl full of life and Westietude. This girl just wants to have fun! Although, I’m very friendly and I did have a furry companion for years, I think I’d prefer a home without other dogs so I can get all the love and attention to myself. The vet staff said I was very friendly and with the right dog might be okay in a multiple dog house but I am super sweet with people. I’d also like a fenced in yard and a home without children.

I am potty-trained, well-mannered, adorable and healthy. Please visit lswr.us to complete an online application. I am such a catch and I know a great family will snatch me up – I will dance my way into your heart!!

XOXO Jezzy

Poppie the Party Girl! **ADOPTED**

Happy Saturday, everyone!
My name is Poppie, and I’m the cutest, most fun Westie/Maltese mix you’ve ever met!
I was found wandering the streets and landed in a local shelter, but no one came to claim me. So, here I am with LSWR! They said they are so happy to have me in their group!
I am only 3 or 4 years old, so I’m full of energy! I am healthy, happy little girl and as playful as a little puppy. I have a great disposition and get along with all the pups in my foster home. Just call me Poppie the Party Girl!
I must say – I am a very smart girl and am learning my leash and house training quite nicely. I’m very active & fun… and I love to walk, play and snuggle with my foster mom. Oh, did I mention belly rubs? All I have to do is roll over and throw my paws in the air to let the belly rubs ensue! My little floppy ears are the cherry on top and add to my already extraordinary charm!
I am vaccinated, spayed and just had my dental. Unfortunately, I was not given monthly heartworm preventative in the past, so I will start heartworm treatment in a few weeks. My dogtor said I’d be just fine and not to worry. My furever family will need to be located in the DFW area since I’ll be going through heartworm treatment.
I am the perfect companion for a family who has lots of time to spend with me – I’m ready to love & play!
Puppy Kisses!
Poppie

Gracie Girl! **ADOPTED**

FullSizeRender

Are you looking for a cuddle bug to warm your heart furever? Allow me to introduce myself – I’m Gracie! My mom has made the very difficult decision to return me to Lone Star Westie Rescue so they can find me a new home. It’s nothing I did, her life circumstances have changed and she feels she can’t give me the love and attention I deserve. I’m about 4 years young, up to date on all my vaccinations, spayed and microchipped. I walk on a leash, I’m potty trained and I have grown up with a furry companion.  I’m not too crazy about bikes or skateboards as I try to chase them. My mom says I like to be the queen of the house so I would be okay as an only dog or another furry companion would be okay also but no kids please.  I don’t play with toys too much but I love humans.  As you can see from my pictures, my goal in life is to just have fun!

I have lots of love and cuddles to give to my new family. If you think we would be a match made in heaven, hurry and complete an adoption application for me at www.lswr.us!

 

Love,
Gracie

 

Little Lulu!

Greetings, everyone! Lulu here… and I have LOTS to say! So let’s get started talking about ME!

I’m a cute little female Chihuahua/ Westie mix, a year old at the most, and I’m not afraid to admit, I may have a bit of a “napoleon complex” already… there’s no dog out there that will scare me! :-) I love to have all of the attention from my humans, and I’ve had to learn not to steal the attention from my foster siblings.

I am potty trained, love to chew on antlers and have a great time with any and all toys but especially soft, squeaky ones!

Another confession- I LOVE people food, but I’ve been told it’s not great for my health. I’ve had to adjust to common dog food, but it seems to suffice…

An ideal home for me would be me as an only fur-kid with human kids to love and play with me. I have lots of energy and can entertain myself with my toys… but there’s also always a time to cuddle!

I’m doing great with my foster family right now, and LSWR will keep you all updated on my progress.

If you’re interested in this little cutie (ME!), please complete an online application at www.lswr.us and mention Lulu!

XOXO,
Lulu
