Westie Wes! Adoption Pending

wes-1

LSWR is excited to present our newest friend, Wes!

Wes is currently being fostered in Temple, Texas. He is about 4 years old, neutered, vaccinated, heartworm negative and gets along great with small & big dogs…. AND… he’s potty trained!

He was found as a stray and our friends in Temple asked LSWR if could take him in to find him a home. Of course, we said “yes!” Wes is very, very sweet little guy, per his foster mom. He even likes to hang out in the crate if the door is open!

If you’re interested in this little cutie, please complete an online application (or the application link can be found on the left side of our Facebook page) at www.lswr.us and mention Wes!

Thank you!
LSWR

Bright Braxton!

Braxton has come a long way since he joined LSWR in September.  He was very thin when he came into foster care but with the care of our vet we discovered he had a condition called EPI (Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency).  EPI is a disease of mal-digestion and mal-absorption, which when left untreated eventually leads to starvation.  We are so very happy to report managing his treatment of supplementation with pancreatic enzymes, has been successfully treated and regulated!!!  Braxton is all Westie and made of tough stuff weighing in now at 18 pounds and looks amazing!!!

He is thriving in his foster home and loves the company of the other Westies.  Braxton will be the first to tell you he loves sharing a comfy recliner with his foster Dad.  He is a very active 10 year old and quite vocal as well, he’s a talker!  He loves to chase after the birds and squirrels and can smell them a mile away.  He loves the great outdoors and knows how to use a doggie door.  He is potty trained, vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.  He sleeps in a crate at night and gets along great with pets & loves human companions.  Braxton’s ideal home would be one with a doggie door and a fenced in backyard.

This little guy is sure to nudge his way into your heart and give you his heart forever.  Braxton is a perfect Westie and he is ready for his new family, are you the one?  Please visit lswr.us to complete an online application and inquire about Bright Braxton

XOXO,
Braxton

Litte Leo

leo-img_2221

My name is Leo and I am a handsome 6 year old, Westie Maltese pup. It was with a broken heart that my family surrendered me to LSWR. As sick and sad as my Mom was, she only wanted the best for me and LSWR assured her that I would be okay.

I can tell you my foster mom says very good things about me & nothing negative!! I am so very sweet and very mindful. I adore people and enjoy the company of other small dogs. I’m a perfect gentleman, 14 pounds, neutered, current on shots and microchipped. I have certainly been loved and well cared for and still have so much love to give. I know I’ll make someone a perfect companion and best friend. I’m on a special diet that help with bladder stones but don’t let that scare you.

If you are looking for a great little guy, then jump on that application and let us hear from you! To complete an online application visit lswr.us or contact lswrvolunteers@verizon.net.

XOXO
LEO

Beautiful Bianca!

Pretty Bianca has crossed to the Rainbow Bridge. Though she will be missed, we know she is healthy and happy now.

___________________________________________________________

Hi all! My name is Bianca, and I’m an 11 year old, 17 pound, spayed Westie girl. Sadly, my owner passed away unexpectedly, and I was all alone in my home for a month until a community of volunteers rallied to get me into Lone Star Westie Rescue.

So, here I am in a new state and getting my paws back under me while adapting to my Dad’s passing and my new, loving foster families.

I am a very sweet and beautiful Westie girl. I am diabetic and take 2 insulin shots a day, but don’t let that or my age fool you because I have been giving my youngster Westie foster siblings a good daily dose of exercise playing Westie tag! I am SUPER fast! While I was previously an only dog, I have been told that sharing is a good thing, but can’t a Westie girl have it all?

I am a very loving girl and love my humans to pieces. I would fit in with a family who already has a laid back fur-kid or I’d be fine as an only pup, as long as I can enjoy all the toys and human affection!

Is there a place in your comfy home for me? If yes, submit your application – I am ready to meet you! Visit lswr.us for the LSWR application!

XOXO,
Bianca

Darling Dewey! **ADOPTED!**

Hi Friends,
I’m Dewey and the folks here in the Big D have given me the most heartfelt welcome I’ve ever seen! My current situation is temporary; it’s just until my forever family comes to pick me up. Until then I’m enjoying two meals a day, the company of fur-friends and my foster people. I love to play with the other fur-friends, but I like my space too. My foster Mom and Dad laugh every day because of my silly antics and I love all the attention! I’m male, about 2 years old, 23 lbs and in good health.
If you want a lovable, energetic boy to join your family, I’m your guy! I’m neutered, microchipped and up to date on all my vaccinations. I like other dogs, but I definitely need a home with no cats!
I’m ready to become your buddy so get your adoption application in to LSWR fast! Can’t wait to meet you!
Kisses and Nibbles,
Dewey

Amazing Annie! **ADOPTED**

Our precious, sweet, loving little Annie is now in her fur-ever home with her amazing new mom!

_____________________________________________________________
We have some Amazing Annie updates for you all on this Monday morning! Please take a moment to read all about this special little girl!
Through no fault of her own, Annie found herself wandering the streets of Dallas in early June. Raggedy and shaggy, she weighed 14 pounds, blind, had an injured left eye, possibly deaf, not spayed, had an upper respiratory infection, and had dental gum disease.She was so matted and flea infested, that the shelter had to shave her at intake.Imagine how afraid and alone she must have felt! No familiar smells; no familiar petting and the scent of fear everywhere! Just all alone!!! Heartbreaking!!! It was evident that this little sweetheart had been horribly neglected. Annie was CODE RED and there was no time to hesitate!
Estimated to be around 10 years of age, she was one of the lucky ones to make it out of the shelter alive. Just as our senior citizens are sometimes disregarded or brushed aside, so too are our senior pets. Annie came into foster care on 6/29 and spent her first few days at the vets getting over her upper respiratory infection. She arrived in her foster home on 7/2 and has blossomed! Since arriving in her foster home, Annie has learned to get around inside and out. Since sight is not a dog’s primary sense and dogs no matter what degree of lost vision or hearing or both, including total loss of both, go on living full lives in safe and secure homes.
Annie may not technically be able to hear… but she CAN hear!! She knows her name and her little tail does a happy dance when you tell her it’s time eat. She loves to eat and loves treats. She is a love-bug and snuggle bug. She is happy snuggling next to her human on the couch or sleeping next to another furry friend. Annie is also potty trained. Annie was recently spayed and had her left eye removed and she is recuperating beautifully and taking her meds like a champ. She is vaccinated and micro-chipped and will be having a dental in another month or so.
Annie, though horribly neglected in her past, has rebound amazingly well with the medical attention she needed, a good diet, and with TLC, something this little Sweetheart clearly had not had in a long time. She has a sweet, gentle soul, loves the company of dogs and people and a very special girl looking for that very special family.
Could your home be that special family for this sweet girl? Please complete an online application and ask for Annie!

Hello, friends! Bella & Sasha here!

Our owner had to surrender us, but God blessed the broken road – LSWR found us and scooped us right up! We told LSWR that we are in great health, but we still had to go visit the vet (we don’t know why they didn’t just take our word for it!). Of course, the vet agreed with us! We’re two very healthy 12 year old sisters! We are the very best of friends, and we love to give Westie kisses. We also get along with other dogs… as long as they want to chase birds and squirrels with us! We are very lady-like… no potty accidents in our foster home. The only difference you’ll find in us is is that I, Bella, am a laid back girl, while my silly sister, Sasha, is a spitfire and is always clowning around. We still play with each other just like we did as puppies.

I, Bella, am in the red collar and sis Sasha is in the purple collar.

We are ready for some fun whenever you are! Please submit an application to meet us… we’re tons of fun!

xoxo,
Bella & Sasha
