Elegant Ellie **ADOPTED!**

My name is Ellie! I am a very young and healthy pup, estimated to be about 2 1/2 years old. I’m spayed, microchipped and current on all my shots. Unfortunately, my family’s home life circumstances changed due to children joining the household and they decided to surrender me to LSWR so they can find me a new home.  I must admit the 4 children stress me out.  I had a doggie companion and I got along ok with my furry friend but I must tell you I would prefer to be the only pet.  That’s just how I roll.

I am a cutie patootie and love human companions. I have a wonderful personality, love to play, love being around my people, enjoy playing with squeaky toys, squirrels, I love them all!  I walk great on a leash and I am very well mannered.

I am looking for a loving family who I can shower with love and kisses and a family who has time for me.  I want a family that loves me to pieces!  I am just that kinda girl. I promise to be your best companion and fill your heart with love and laughter. I know I will steal your heart and you will love me FOREVER!! Please visit lswr.us to complete an online application and ask for Ellie.

XOXO Ellie
           

Smart, Sweet Seelie!

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 tails!
 
Love,
Seelie

______________________________________________________

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!

XOXO,
Seelie

_________________________________________________________________________________________

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!
Awesome Archie

 

PS- What do you think of my before and after haircut pics?!

_________________________________________________________________

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 lswrvolunteers@verizon.net.

XOXO
LEO

Westie Wes! **ADOPTED**

wes-1

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!

Thank you!
LSWR

Beautiful Bianca!

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!

XOXO,
Bianca

Bright Braxton! Adopted

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

XOXO,
Braxton

Darling Dewey! **ADOPTED!**

Hi Friends,
I’m Dewey and the folks here in the Big D have given me the most heartfelt welcome I’ve ever seen! My current situation is temporary; it’s just until my forever family comes to pick me up. Until then I’m enjoying two meals a day, the company of fur-friends and my foster people. I love to play with the other fur-friends, but I like my space too. My foster Mom and Dad laugh every day because of my silly antics and I love all the attention! I’m male, about 2 years old, 23 lbs and in good health.
If you want a lovable, energetic boy to join your family, I’m your guy! I’m neutered, microchipped and up to date on all my vaccinations. I like other dogs, but I definitely need a home with no cats!
I’m ready to become your buddy so get your adoption application in to LSWR fast! Can’t wait to meet you!
Kisses and Nibbles,
Dewey

Amazing Annie! **ADOPTED**

Our precious, sweet, loving little Annie is now in her fur-ever home with her amazing new mom!
annie-adopted
_____________________________________________________________
We have some Amazing Annie updates for you all on this Monday morning! Please take a moment to read all about this special little girl!
Through no fault of her own, Annie found herself wandering the streets of Dallas in early June. Raggedy and shaggy, she weighed 14 pounds, blind, had an injured left eye, possibly deaf, not spayed, had an upper respiratory infection, and had dental gum disease.She was so matted and flea infested, that the shelter had to shave her at intake.Imagine how afraid and alone she must have felt! No familiar smells; no familiar petting and the scent of fear everywhere! Just all alone!!! Heartbreaking!!! It was evident that this little sweetheart had been horribly neglected. Annie was CODE RED and there was no time to hesitate!
Estimated to be around 10 years of age, she was one of the lucky ones to make it out of the shelter alive. Just as our senior citizens are sometimes disregarded or brushed aside, so too are our senior pets. Annie came into foster care on 6/29 and spent her first few days at the vets getting over her upper respiratory infection. She arrived in her foster home on 7/2 and has blossomed! Since arriving in her foster home, Annie has learned to get around inside and out. Since sight is not a dog’s primary sense and dogs no matter what degree of lost vision or hearing or both, including total loss of both, go on living full lives in safe and secure homes.
Annie may not technically be able to hear… but she CAN hear!! She knows her name and her little tail does a happy dance when you tell her it’s time eat. She loves to eat and loves treats. She is a love-bug and snuggle bug. She is happy snuggling next to her human on the couch or sleeping next to another furry friend. Annie is also potty trained. Annie was recently spayed and had her left eye removed and she is recuperating beautifully and taking her meds like a champ. She is vaccinated and micro-chipped and will be having a dental in another month or so.
Annie, though horribly neglected in her past, has rebound amazingly well with the medical attention she needed, a good diet, and with TLC, something this little Sweetheart clearly had not had in a long time. She has a sweet, gentle soul, loves the company of dogs and people and a very special girl looking for that very special family.
Could your home be that special family for this sweet girl? Please complete an online application and ask for Annie!

Dynamic Duo… Bella & Sasha! **ADOPTED**

XOXO,
Bella & Sasha

Hello, friends! Bella & Sasha here!

Our owner had to surrender us, but God blessed the broken road – LSWR found us and scooped us right up! We told LSWR that we are in great health, but we still had to go visit the vet (we don’t know why they didn’t just take our word for it!). Of course, the vet agreed with us! We’re two very healthy 12 year old sisters! We are the very best of friends, and we love to give Westie kisses. We also get along with other dogs… as long as they want to chase birds and squirrels with us! We are very lady-like… no potty accidents in our foster home. The only difference you’ll find in us is is that I, Bella, am a laid back girl, while my silly sister, Sasha, is a spitfire and is always clowning around. We still play with each other just like we did as puppies.

I, Bella, am in the red collar and sis Sasha is in the purple collar.

We are ready for some fun whenever you are! Please submit an application to meet us… we’re tons of fun!

xoxo,
Bella & Sasha

Sweet Stanley! **ADOPTED**

Stanley’s Happy Tail!

Well… all I can say is… that was FAST! I’ve been adopted into the best fur-ever home with the Kaplan’s! That’s right- you can call me Stanley Kaplan now! My awesome fosters, Mary & Stephen, knew as soon as I met the Kaplan family that we were a match made in Heaven! I even have three brothers to play with! This picture is us earlier today having our mid-morning snooze after play time in the yard. Playing chase with four boys deserves a good nap!

I couldn’t be happier! Thank you to everyone for their help and well wishes!

Love,
Stanley

Stanley Happy Tail

________________________________________________________

LSWR would like to introduce our newest friend, Stanley! Stanley has been a sad little guy lately – his mom passed away two months ago and he’s been staying with family. Unfortunately, they can’t keep him, but they came to the right place! We are so excited to take Stanley in. He had a wonderful mom and is in excellent health. He’s 9 years old and came in current on all vaccines and heart worm meds. Even neutered! He is a young 9 year old guy – could easily pass for 5! He has the most robust bark and is just a happy go lucky boy! He will make an excellent companion – he’s great with both kids and other dogs.

Please let us know if you’re interested in meeting Stanley. Please complete our application located on the left side of our Facebook page or on our website at www.lswr.us.

Thank you from LSWR & Stanley!

Annie the Lovebug! **ADOPTED**

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

Kisses,
Annie

Two Best Friends… meet Billy Bob & Rosie! **ADOPTED**

BB & Rosie’s Happy Tail!

Happy Monday from the happiest couple around! We, BB & Rosie, are on cloud nine! We had the best road trip to our new fur-ever home and are L-O-V-I-N-G it in Kansas City, MO! The surroundings suit us, don’t you think? Our new Mom, Dad & Sister love their new cute twinkies, and we sure do love them back! Just look at our first family photo! Papa Larry said that Mama Judy got all of the kisses on the car ride home ONLY because he was busy driving. 🙂 Papa Larry also said that this is a true fairy tale ending… we are all going to live happily ever after!

XOXO,
BB & 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!

Love,
Billy Bob & Rosie

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!

XOXO,
Max

 

________________________________________

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.

XOXO
Max

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!
Sassy Girl

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,

Lucy

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

IMG_0353IMG_0350IMG_0355IMG_0351

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!!

Gunner

 

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!
Love,
Scout

Read all about it! By “it” I mean me, Jack! **ADOPTED**

I am one lucky fella and want to tell you all about it! My foster mom, Dru, and my foster sister, Emma, have supported me and loved me through my first round of heartworm treatment. I’m getting ready for my second round of treatment and guess what – they love me SO much, they want to support me through this one too and keep me FUR-ever! I am thrilled to be a full time part of this family! Emma has taught me how to truly relax, and it’s something we practice often. Mama Dru tells me I’m a “true joy.” I need to tell her… the joy I display is a result of the love she has shown me!

Love,
Jack

May I Introduce… Me! Marley! **ADOPTED**

Guys! It’s Marley! This is the best Sunday Funday ever! It’s my last night to spend at the vet – they tell me my respiratory infection is all better and my skin infection will be better in no time, too, which means no more of these bad hair days (yes- boys have bad hair days too)! Sooooo… I get to go to my new foster family tomorrow! I had a tough time a couple of weeks ago – I was found inside a vacant house. I was a little scared (and bored!), but some nice people came to get me, fixed me right up and now I’m going to be loved on me and receive lots of lavish presents. Ok, the presents are squeaky toys. All of my doctors and visitors tell me I have the most beautiful pearly white teeth (check out the pictures – I even smiled for them!), I listen intently when they tell me stories, AND I’m potty trained at the spry age of 3 years old, too (yeah – they tell me I’m the whole package – smart and sweet)!

They’re doing this thing called “neutering” in a couple of weeks (I’ve been assured everything will be okay), and then I will be ready for my FUR-ever home! I can’t WAIT for the adventure the next few weeks holds for me! Call me!

XOXO,
Marley
