Hi everyone, my name is Toodles, I know funny name for a girl right but it fits me just right. Not sure why I ended up in a local shelter, I have a microchip but I guess no one wanted me. I huddled in the back of cage, waiting and waiting. The shelter contacted LSWR to see if they’d help an 11-year old girl like me. And then suddenly I heard someone tell me that it was going to be okay because LSWR wanted me and they would find me a great home!
As you might guess, I am not a Westie….I may be a Wheaten Terrier mix. I am a super happy girl and when I get excited to see you, I wiggle my tush & nubby tail. The vet staff said I was super sweet and a very healthy girl.
I am estimated to be 11 years, spayed, microchipped and my shots are current. If you are looking for a sweetheart of a girl who is very grateful for her second chance, then I’m the one. I am house trained and walk great on a leash. I love to hang with humans and just lay on the floor by your feet. I’m easy going, laid back and love going for walks. I’m in a foster home with a Westie gal and a male Westie/Schnauzer and I’m doing okay with them but I would really enjoy a home where I’m the only pet.
Please visit lswr.us, complete an application and ask for Toodles. Hope to hear from you soon!
Hi everyone, Wrigley here,
I was found as a stray and no one came for me at the shelter but I happily joined the LSWR family about one week ago. The shelter listed me as a terrier mix so LSWR said “Hey Wrigley, come and stay with us and we will find you a new home”. Wow, this sounded great!
I was all raggedy & matted when I arrived at the vets but I had the best spa day ever!! Come to think of it, I think I heard them say, Wrigley, we think you might be a Poodle Terrier. Who cares, I’m in great hands now and I know I’m going to find a great home.
In the past week, I got a vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and a new haircut. I’m heartworm negative, young and healthy, so I’m as good as new.
The vet staff at Josey Ranch adored me and said I was super sweet, just like the chewing gum. I am one of the happiest, easy going and sweetest pup that you could ever meet. I’m estimated to be 2 years young, maybe a tad younger, appear to be potty-trained, love to ride in the car and romp in the great outdoors. My foster mom agrees that I’m a young pup because I love to nibble on her hands and toys, but I am not a chewer. I am doggie friendly, sleep in my crate, walk great on a leash and come when called – what more is there?
If you have room in your family for a boy like me, visit lswr.us and send in your application. I’ll warm your heart and make you smile.
Hello, my name is Wally and I’m a Cairn Terrier! After being found on a busy street, LSWR rescued me from the local shelter and found me a relaxing foster home to live at until I find my forever family! I’m about 2 years young and weigh in at a light 13 pounds, which makes me a perfect size for snuggling on someone’s lap. I am also vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. It took me a few weeks to really get used to my foster parents, but now I LOVE to snuggle with them on the couch while they watch tv and read books!
Like many dogs, I don’t get along with cats, but I like my foster brother (a small Cairn Terrier) a lot, and don’t mind sharing my toys with him. I even let him help me clean up cheese from the floor with my foster mom “accidentally” drops some. I also need a home without children because I sometimes get a little grumpy when humans take away a toy I am playing with.
My foster parents have me on a regular schedule each day (since they insist on going to work), which I like quite a lot. I’m most comfortable knowing exactly when it is time to eat, potty, play, and sleep. I don’t have a lot of grumpy moments these days, but when I do it is usually because my schedule has been thrown off and I am confused. When it is outside time, I love to lay in the grass and soak up the sun. Sometimes I accidentally roll in the grass just after it has been mowed and turn a little green, but I’m a good boy in the bathtub, so my foster mom doesn’t mind! And when it is time for bed, I jump in my crate and wait patiently for my foster mom to get me a little hotdog piece. I’ll do anything for a hotdog (or any other treat, really)!
I would love to find a forever family who will shower me with love and have lots of time to help me grow up. If I sound like the right boy for you, please complete the online application on the LSWR website.
Thanks for checking me out! My name is Taylor. My story is that after 10 years with the same family and being their baby, my owners dropped me at a shelter because they had a human baby and didn’t have time to take care of me anymore. It was a shock, but I didn’t let that get me down! I charmed the shelter people, and they saw what a good boy I am. They contacted LSWR to come and give me a new start. The first thing I did when I saw my foster parents were there to take me home, was give my foster Mom a big hug. She said LSWR will find me a new home where my new family will have lots of love and time for me, which is all I want! I’m so excited, I can’t wait!
Don’t let my age fool you – I am as playful and friendly as a pup, plus cute as a button says my foster Mom. Everyone comments on my gentle and friendly nature and really good manners! I’m fully potty trained, crate trained and very happy go lucky. I walk well on a leash, enjoy car rides, and enjoy playing games. I also enjoy a good cuddle and relaxing together in the evenings when it’s couch potato time. I’m very interested in being a member of a household and work to fit right in with the others and routines. At my foster home, they say it’s like I’ve always been here chasing squirrels, sharing watch dog patrol with my pals, and of course, enjoying snuggle duties for the humans.
The vet’s office gave me lots of praise for being easy to handle and the best guess is that I am a Westie and Schnauzer mix to create this bundle of cuteness that is ME! I’m about 20 pounds and my fur is very soft, which my foster Mom says just adds even more to my snuggle appeal!
So as soon as I get finished with my teeth cleaning and vetting, I’ll be ready to dedicate my time and attentions to a new family who wants a best friend like me. If you’re interested, please contact them at LSWR so we can meet each other soon!
If you’d like to meet me, just complete the application on this site and mention your pal, “Taylor”!
Meet Frankie, an adorable 10-month old male Westie. He is all puppy, very active, playful and very smart. Frankie came to rescue because his family didn’t have the time to devote to a puppy. Thankfully, they called LSWR. Frankie loves other Westies, treats and stuffed toys. He is neutered and micro-chipped. He is 95% potty-trained and sleeps in his crate.
He will need a home without small children under the age of 8 years and no cats. He also needs a fenced in yard so he can run and play. He would thrive in a home with another dog his size and age range that can keep up with a Westie puppy.
If you have the time to devote to Frankie, please visit lswr.us and complete an online application.
Please note: we do NOT ship our pets. If you have a pool, LSWR requires you have a fence around the pool for a safe environment for a puppy.
LSWR does NOT have a shelter, all applicants need to be approved before meeting a foster.
Hi all! Quincy here! When I joined Lone Star Westie Rescue on 10/27/17, I had severe skin, ear and eye infections. I was not feeling my best, that’s for sure.
LSWR quickly got me to their vet for an exam and my vet started me on medications and special dog food that I needed to get healthy again. Then off to foster care I went! My foster family has taken such great care of me, I got the medicated baths I needed, made sure I had my daily meds, took me on long walks in the neighborhood, and gave me tons of love and attention. I have blossomed while I was in their care. My foster mom said I have been the sweetest and bestest Westie housemate she’s ever had. I am so well mannered, potty-trained and I get along great with other dogs. My skin is looking great and my hair is growing back. I am neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and I also had a dental. I take daily eye drops for dry eye and I’m a champ with those eye drops. I am the most perfect 8 year old Westie one could ever imagine. I am so incredibly sweet and gentle.
I can assure you that I have reclaimed my life and enjoy being that awesome Westie that I was mean’t to be. A Westie without a care in the world, yep that’s me… Quincy!! All I wish for is a really super great family for a super great Westie like me.
XOXO Quincy (aka Little Buddy)
We’re new to Lone Star Westie Rescue. My name is Joplin! And I’m Jagger!
We’ve been together all 6 years of our lives and need a new home where we can stay together. Our mom became ill and had to go to a nursing home, so Lone Star Westie Rescue was called upon to find us a new, loving “forever” home.
Excuse me just a minute… Joplin wants to ask me a question on her behalf:
“Jagger, some people call me bossy. Do you think that’s true?”
“Well, Joplin, you definitely want to be the alpha dog of the family, but I’m ok with that because I have a very laid back personality.”
Needless to say, we do best in a home where there’s just the two of us! Oh, and no cats please!
We are spayed and neutered, microchipped, and up to date on our vaccinations. We are house-trained and walk on a leash. The perfect combo!
