My name is Cala and I’m looking for my prefect home.  You see, came in with a group of 9 Westies from a puppy mill a few months back.  I got fully vetted, spayed, vaccinated and had a dental and I’m certified as a very healthy and active Westie girl.  I have been in a foster home with 4 other pups, Westies and a Cairn Terrier and let me tell you, I’m just a wee small Westie, the smallest of the bunch.  But this little Westie wants to rule everyone and be the boss so I’m thinking I just might want a home where I am the only pet and get all the attention!

Here is what I need:  A loving home in the DFW geographic area that my sponsor Lone Star Westie Rescue serves.  That area includes all of Texas, and most cities in Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas.  I need to be your only pet because I am very high attention demanding and very territorial.  I love people, but my foster siblings are competitors for your attention, and my territory, which I don’t love so much.  No cats or kids and no apartments please!   A home with previous terrier experience would be a big PLUS.  I am super cute and love to be spoiled and snuggled, but you know us Westies, we can be stubborn, and avid outdoor chasers of squirrels, mice, birds, and escape artists, it’s in our DNA.   So, with previous terrier experience you will already know and appreciate the expectations of this classic terrier behavior – WESTIETUDE.  I am bit on the small side for our breed, part of what makes us so super cute, but I can escape right out of the iron fencing so a secure fence is a MUST.  I just need patience, understanding, obedience training and potty-training reinforcement.  I’m smart, and get the new routines with kind reinforcement, but so much is still new to me so patience please.  Please understand I’ve never been inside a house or seen a television or had a potty routine before I came to rescue.  My Westitude is carrying me through splendidly though!    

If  you think you’re the perfect family for me, visit Lone Star Westie Rescue website and read about the adoption process, qualifications and costs.  If you are interested in applying for consideration for adoption, then fill out and submit the electronic application fully to begin the process.  You will be contacted within 5-7 days by one of our volunteers.  Please note LSWR is run by a group of dedicated volunteers and does not have a public shelter. All the rescues for adoption are fostered in private homes.  Thank you for understanding that only adopters meeting adoption criteria can be invited to meet the dogs.
