Beautiful Bianca!

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 for the LSWR application!



Bright Braxton!

Hello, everyone! I hope you’re enjoying the cool weather this morning… I sure am! I wanted to show you some photos of my handsome self and share some details about ME!

My name is Braxton and I know a thing or two about families! I grew up with a family all my life but life became busy for them and I found myself in a home with what they call a “foster family.” I must say, it didn’t take me long to realize that this “foster home thing” is pretty great. How could I not love it?

I am an adorable 9 year old Westie and am a very calm, sweet boy. I’m even quiet, not too much barking on my part except for when my foster family gets home and I’m happy and anxious to see them! My foster mom says I am “PERFECT” & I think you’d AGREE. I love that my foster Dad shares his recliner with me and we both lounge on it. It’s the best!

I came in a little thin but my foster family is working on that. I’m very bright and have great potty manners – I go right out the back door, hit the grass and potty so I would say I’m 100% potty trained. I’m vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. I sleep in a crate at night and I get along great with my foster Westies! I know – I’m a dream come true! 🙂

Someone will be so lucky to have me, and I’m ready to meet you all! So please visit to complete an online application and inquire about wonderful me!



Darling Dewey!

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,
annie after surgery

Amazing Annie! **ADOPTED**

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!

Annie the Lovebug! **ADOPTED**

I hope everyone is having a special Monday… I know I am! My foster mom just told me some very special words that the vet said about me… “Annie was a train wreck, but this beloved abandoned sweet girl, has a life well worth living and deserves to sleep in a warm soft bed, and know love and compassion!”

I looked a little rough when I went into the vet, as you’ll see in my picture below… and, unfortunately I had various issues… some of which we are still working through. However, I was well enough to go to my new foster home over the weekend, and mom says I am just a lovebug! A few things about me that my fur-ever home will need to know: I’m a 10 year old girl, potty-trained and very lady-like. I am both blind (I will always need eye drops) and deaf but that doesn’t keep me down – I love to prance around like a pony in the backyard! I’m also on the path to recovery from heartworms and some skin issues. I’ll be spayed and have some dental work soon, too! I’m just considering it as some time at the spa & salon!

I’m being very well taken care of with my foster family… my friend, Sydney, and I like to lay by each other at nap time.

I’m so glad to have the warm, soft bed that the vet mentioned. I’m excited to keep everyone posted on my progress, and I would love to hear from anyone interested in knowing more about me!


Bella  Sasha 1a

Dynamic Duo… Bella & Sasha! **ADOPTED**

Our girls have found their furever home! A note from Bella & Sasha:
We are so happy to be home with Mama Teresa and Papa Jim! We have a great big back yard that we explore together, and I just love to give kisses to my new humans! Of course, Sasha is being her laid-back self… she acts like she’s been here forever! We are so thankful to be together and with a family who loves us to the moon and back!

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!

Stanley 1

Sweet Stanley! **ADOPTED**

Stanley’s Happy Tail!

Well… all I can say is… that was FAST! I’ve been adopted into the best fur-ever home with the Kaplan’s! That’s right- you can call me Stanley Kaplan now! My awesome fosters, Mary & Stephen, knew as soon as I met the Kaplan family that we were a match made in Heaven! I even have three brothers to play with! This picture is us earlier today having our mid-morning snooze after play time in the yard. Playing chase with four boys deserves a good nap!

I couldn’t be happier! Thank you to everyone for their help and well wishes!


Stanley Happy Tail


LSWR would like to introduce our newest friend, Stanley! Stanley has been a sad little guy lately – his mom passed away two months ago and he’s been staying with family. Unfortunately, they can’t keep him, but they came to the right place! We are so excited to take Stanley in. He had a wonderful mom and is in excellent health. He’s 9 years old and came in current on all vaccines and heart worm meds. Even neutered! He is a young 9 year old guy – could easily pass for 5! He has the most robust bark and is just a happy go lucky boy! He will make an excellent companion – he’s great with both kids and other dogs.

Please let us know if you’re interested in meeting Stanley. Please complete our application located on the left side of our Facebook page or on our website at

Thank you from LSWR & Stanley!
