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!
Hey, everybody! You know me as Skittles, but I have a new name now–it’s Dallas.
When I came to Lone Star Westie Rescue, 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 she put me on the medications and special dog food that I needed to get healthy again.
Then off to foster care I went! My foster parents, Lauren and Jim , took such good care of me.They gave me 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 blossomed while I was in their care.
Next thing you know, LSWR posted my story on their social media and a wonderful family fell in love with me and adopted me this week!
Their previous Westie went to the Rainbow Bridge last Fall and they were looking for a new furkid to love. They wanted me!!❤️
I am living a great life now; I’m the only furkid in the home so I get all the family’s love and attention and I get to sleep in the big bed with them and I have a fishing dock in my back yard. Boy, do I love rolling around in dead fish if I find them! Mom says I shouldn’t do it, but it’s so much fun!
I know I will be forever loved and taken care of.
Big Westie hugs and kisses to my foster family, Lauren and Jim. Thank you for getting me on the road to recovery!
Thank you to LSWR for rescuing me and thank you to my new family for giving me a second chance at life.
Now presenting…… Just Jack!
Jack is a bunch of awesome in a small package! He has a sweet disposition and is absolutely loving life! He is between 1 – 3 years old (probably closer to the younger side based on his puppy behavior!). While Jack is working on becoming the perfect companion, he will need some consistency in his home… he knows how to “work the system” and take advantage of any change in the rules.🙂 He is very smart and easy to correct; however, he is a terrier, after all!
Jack has a very soft coat that will need regular grooming. He loves to be by your side regardless of the activity. Want to go for a walk – ok! Want to rest a bit – works for him!
Jack is good with children but should be in a home with kids who understand how to respect and treat animals. Jack does guard resources (toys and food) from other dogs. He gets along well with other dogs but does like to slightly dominant. It is important that Jack and any other dog companions understand their humans are the top dogs – not them.
Jack can be a bit of an escape artist… he is learning to wait patiently at the door to go outside. He also knows how to use a pet door and can be trusted in the house if given access to the doggie door.
Jack is an active, young dog that is interested in learning new things. If you are looking for a great dog interested in being an active part of your life, Jack is the companion you’ve been looking for!
