Hi! I’m Katie!
I was picked up as a stray and had nowhere to go, but LSWR gladly took me in. I was very scared at the shelter, but the staff at my vet’s office said I was so good letting them examine me. I arrived very dirty with flea & tick critters but after a couple of baths, I’m critter free! I’m a little shy but I have a tender heart and am a very sweet girl. I am about 3 – 4 years young, spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Sadly, my prior owner didn’t give me monthly heartworm preventative, so I tested positive for heartworms but my foster mom and Dr. Stewart said I was going to do just fine through the heartworm treatment. From here on out, it’s all looking up for me and my neglectful past is behind me!
I have a gentle soul and enjoy the company of other dogs & my foster mom. I am potty-trained and walk great on a leash. Indoor living seems new to me but I’m getting the hang of being a pampered girl. I was a little timid and shy my first few days in foster care but I’m making daily progress!!
If you have the love and a little patience for me, I know I will steal your heart. Please visit lswr.us and complete an online application.
Hi everyone! We will resume the Annual Reunion & Picnic festivities on Sunday, June 11th, 2017, at Mary Heads Carter Park from 10am – 1pm.
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
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.
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!
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
Our girls have found their furever home! A note from Bella & Sasha:
We are so happy to be home with Mama Teresa and Papa Jim! We have a great big back yard that we explore together, and I just love to give kisses to my new humans! Of course, Sasha is being her laid-back self… she acts like she’s been here forever! We are so thankful to be together and with a family who loves us to the moon and back!
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!
Bella & Sasha
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
Billy Bob & Rosie
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!
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.
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!
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,
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!!
