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

We hope everyone can make it for another great time! Please send us an email at email@example.com or message us on Facebook if you still plan to attend!
Happy rainy Friday, all!
In an effort to spare us all (and our cars) the mess that is a Westie who has had a bit too much fun in the mud, we are postponing our annual reunion & picnic currently scheduled for tomorrow.
Our apologies for the inconvenience… we just want everyone (and everydog) to have the best time possible!
A new date will be shared ASAP… we hope you’ll be able to join!
Hello! Ryder here with an update!
I have so much to tell you! The big, big news is (drum roll, please)………
I have a new furever home… AND a new name! You can call me Guinness!
My mom, Tricia, and dad, Bill, love me to pieces. Can’t you tell from these pics?! They give me a lot of love and attention and make sure I have everything I need to live the happiest life. I’ve come a long way from the streets and shelter, that’s for sure!
I want to send big hugs and kisses to my foster moms, Linda and Kay! And thank you to Kim for transporting me to Lone Star Westie Rescue!
My name is Ryder but my friends call me Bo. I am a bundle of a super cute Yorkie Terrier mix approximately 14 pounds and estimated to be about 3-4 years young. I was picked up as a stray and landed in a shelter but thanks to all the LSWR volunteers who got me to Big D. I am a very healthy happy boy, love other furry friends and I have a charming personality and delightful demeanor, that I know anyone that meets me will fall in love.
My foster Mom says that I am the sweetest boy ever. I’m potty trained, like laps and I am a lovebug. My foster home is great, but I would love to have my very own family. I’m scheduled to have a dental very soon and that’s it for this cutie patootie.
I am neutered, microchipped & current on my shots and I am ready for you!!
Hugs & kisses, Bo
Sweet Seelie here! It’s official… I have a new fur-ever home! Mama Dina and Papa William love me to pieces! I even have a new brother, Snoopy! We go on trips in the motorcoach, and I even sleep in bed with my paw-rents!
We are having the best time as one big happy family. I couldn’t have asked for more!
Happy Friday, everyone! My name is Seelie! I’m a playful, spunky girl and I turn 8-years old next month! Up until now, I’ve only known one home with a wonderful mom and dad who took great care of me. I’m spayed, microchipped, up to date on my shots and very healthy. Unfortunately, my mom & dad had to surrender me due to health issues and I found myself taking a road trip with a foster family. I loved riding in the car and it was fun having two foster westies riding along with me. Little did I know I’d be living with them. My first days, I have to admit, I was scared. But I am a very adaptable girl and I fit right into the routine here at my foster home. I love being around my foster fur friends, taking walks, lounging on the couch, playing fetch, and chasing those pesky squirrels in the backyard. I also love to cuddle and give kisses. My foster mom tells me that I have a lot of energy and that I’m a very good girl. I listen well and know a few commands. I have the run of the house when my foster parents are away and I behave exemplary. Check out my pictures – I’m told I’m a cutie! Maybe I’m the cutie for you!
Please ask LSWR about me! I’m ready to start life in my new fur-ever home! Submit an online application at www.lswr.us and mention your girl, Seelie!
Awesome Archie and his fur-ever Mom sent us this picture of their weekend of bonding and companionship! They are a match made in heaven!
Happy tails, Archie! We can’t wait to hear more about your new, amazing home!
Hugs & Kisses,
Hi I’m Archie, an adorable Carin Terrier, and I’m 9 years young. Sadly, my owner’s medical needs prevented them from caring for me and I was surrendered to a local shelter. I can tell you, I miss my family very much but I was assured it’s all going to be good. I’m current on my vaccinations, neutered and microchipped, too. I’ve had a haircut and I feel GREAT!
I’m a 21 pound bundle of a fun loving strong & healthy boy. I’m smart too. I’m potty trained, walk great on a leash and I sleep in a crate! I’m on my way to my foster home so you’ll be hearing more about me soon.
So keep me in mind if you need someone with a little spunk and great personality to love, I’m your guy. You’ll soon discover what everyone has known all along about me…that Awesome Archie is a happy, sweet, gentle and all around wonderful companion! Hurry and visit lswr.us and submit your online application so we can start our new life together.
See you soon!
PS- What do you think of my before and after haircut pics?!
Our handsome little Leo is in his new fur-ever home… here he is loving life on a Sunday and ready to watch the big game!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
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!
