Annie 1

Annie the Lovebug!

I hope everyone is having a special Monday… I know I am! My foster m


om 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!


Billy Bob & Rosie

Two Best Friends… meet Billy Bob & Rosie!

We’re the two best friends anyone could ever have… Billy Bob & Rosie!

The last year has been tough on us. We survived a flood last year by floating on a mattress with our other best friend, Mom, until we were rescued, but now she has become too ill to care for us. We are 8 & 12 years old, and Mom has loved and cared for us every second of those years. We will miss being with her very much, but we still have each other and are currently on our way to the DFW area to settle in and begin our search for our new fur-ever home together!

More to come on our move!

Meet Max! **ADOPTED**

Happy tails for Max!

Handsome Max here!

Thank you all so much for the overwhelming response of love and care for me! I am so happy to let everyone know that I have a new furever home… that includes a ranch and HORSES! I’ve already jumped right in to help feed the horses, and I love exploring my yard! Thanks so much to my Austin parents, Al & Pam, for helping me find my way to Kristen & Vincent… and my new sister, Roxy! They loved me right away… and I loved them, too!

I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with my new family on the ranch!




Hi friends! My name is Max, and I am 12 years young! I had an owner since I was a puppy, but she got sick a long time ago and family members were suppose to take care of me. Sadly, one day they decided to take me to a shelter outside of Austin. The shelter staff rallied to contact a rescue to take me in and here I am!!

Quickly, my Austin foster family stepped in to go get me and take me to the vet. My fur was matted and covered with burrs, but my loving LSWR foster family gently removed them all and then bathed me. Since then, I’ve had a haircut and I feel GREAT! I am currently taking meds for an ear infection, a skin infection and an eye ointment, but as you can see from the pictures, I’m looking pretty handsome and feeling SO much better. I will have a dental in the very near future.

I’m taking daily walks with my foster Westies and even shedding some pounds. My foster family says I have a very sweet disposition and am very easy going and low maintenance. I get along great with dogs. I will be just fine with other pets or even if it’s just me by myself, I’m okay with that too. I would like a family who has time to spend with me, who will love me unconditionally, and never abandon me again!!

If you fit the bill, I would love to hear from you.


Ginger 4

Ginger aka Sassy Girl! **ADOPTED**

Happy Sunday! I’m Lil Ginger, but you can call me Sassy Girl! I’m just a wee little puppy weighing in at about 4 pounds, and I will be looking for my new furever family very soon. I was found running along the highway and was picked up by a Good Samaritan before getting hit by a car. That is no way of life for an 8 week old puppy. I am so thankful to be an LSWR foster puppy, and I’m getting a lot of puppy training from my big foster sisters, Sophie & Sydney. While I can’t tell you what happened to me before being found on the highway, I definitely left my doggie mom and littermates too soon, so Sophie is showing me the ropes and teaching me all about puppy manners. I don’t want to brag, but I’ve only been in my foster home almost one week and I’ve only had one accident, and my foster mom said that was her fault! So really if you think about it, I’ve got a clean record. And on top of that, I’ve mastered “sit”!! I think you’d agree that I’m a pretty smart pup! I’m walking pretty darn good on the leash, LOVE toys and more TOYS, and I love the great outdoors, with lots of supervision of course!

I will need a loving family who will have the time to devote to having a puppy, along with a fenced in yard. Another furry friend would be great because I am learning so much from my foster buddies.

Puppy kisses to everyone!

I Love Lucy **ADOPTED**

Hi friends!

I’m Lucy, and I have to tell you that there really and truly are good people in the world! I’m 13 years young, and my family split up recently. It was a really hard transition for everyone, and I wasn’t quite getting the attention a cute Westie girl needs. My family did their best but eventually decided I would be happier in another home with lots and lots of time devoted to me. Enter… Lone Star Westie Rescue! My awesome Austin, TX foster fam, Pam & Al, took me right into their home! Now enter… Papa Todd and Mama Leslie! Mom and Pop were out of town and hadn’t had a chance to meet me yet, but when LSWR told them about me, they wanted me instantly. Even though I have some health issues, they just knew in their hearts that I was the perfect addition to their family. My awesome Austin family brought me to DFW where I met and fell in love with Papa Todd and Mama Leslie… and, I even have two new Westie sisters, Chloe & Roxy!

I’m happy to say… and they all lived happily ever after!

Hugs & kisses,



Gunner is looking for a forever home!!! **ADOPTED**


I’m Gunner and I’m the newest addition to LSWR.  I ended up in a shelter and didn’t not find my forever home so LSWR offered to give me some help!

 My foster mom says I’m a good boy with lots of energy.  Cuddles and kisses are a requirement for my adoption because I love to pass them out to everyone.  I like my foster siblings and really like to be chased.  I’m still learning a potty routine since I’m only 10 months old, but I’m catching on pretty quick.  The dogtor says I weigh in at 8 lbs and I’m in good health.  If I look like a good fit, please complete an application so we can meet!!

 Whishing all the fur kids and fur parents a Happy Easter!!

 High Paw!!

Friday news from Scout! **ADOPTED**

Happy Friday, y’all! Scout here to tell you that after being rescued in 2013, I’ve found my FUR-ever home… with the ones who saved me! That’s right – I’m so much fun (you might say I’m the life of the party…) and my Westie brother, Oliver, and I are such best buds now, it would be silly for me to be anywhere else! I’ve also learned this trick that made Mama Ann fall head over heels for me – turn your head from side to side like you know EXACTLY what she’s saying and you’re golden! I basically get a new tennis ball (my favorite!) every time I do it. Oliver is totally on board with the game.
Enjoy your weekend, guys… I know I will!
