Duffy

Hello everyone, my name is Prosper, I know, funny name for a little Westie, but you can call me Duffy.  I joined LSWR on 1/28/2021 when another rescue group asked LSWR if they could help some Westies in need and here I am.

I’m a wee darling Westie weighing in at 16 pounds and rest assured this little guy will steal your heart! I am heartworm and fecal negative, neutered, up to date on my vaccinations and my blood work came back with excellent results. I just turned 6 years old on 1/1/2021.  I was rescued from a puppy mill and happy to be in the care of LSWR. 

During my initial intake exam my vet said my teeth were in horrible shape and there was a high probability that all of them might need to be extracted during my dental, and they were right.  All my teeth were extracted on 2/9/21 but that doesn’t bother me one bit.  In fact, I eat better now and I’m gaining my weight back.  In fact, I had lost a pound in about 2 weeks due to my teeth and gums hurting when I tried to eat.  But all that is behind me now!  My meals after my dental extractions consisted of chicken, rice, and cooked vegetables.  Now my foster mom is integrating small soften kibble food.  You should see me jumping for joy when she preps my meals, you’d think I’m on a trampoline!  I now have a clean soft bed, good food, and wonderful people taking care of me and I’m loving life.  While I understand not having teeth may be a show-stopper for some individuals, that’s ok, because I know the RIGHT family will come along.

I have a very kind and gentle soul and such a loving disposition. I love people and love my foster buddies.  I certainly want another doggie companion because I enjoy the company of other doggies.  And last, but not least, I am an excellent cuddle bug!  If you’re looking for a lap buddy, then I’m your guy!!  You’ll never lounge alone with me by your side!

Many things are new to me so I will need time, patience & training.  I get startled with loud noises but I’m getting used to them.  I’m just learning how to walk on a leash and learning about potty manners.  I am ready for the next chapter of my life, could that be with you?
