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!

Hello everyone, my name is McGee. Some of my friends and I just joined LSWR. Another rescue group reached out to LSWR to ask if they could help some Westies in need and how can anyone turn away from helping any pup in need?
I am 22 pounds of a healthy Westie, active and simply adorable! I’m even cuter in person if you can believe that! I am heartworm and fecal negative, up to date on my vaccinations and my blood work came back with excellent results. I just turned 4 years old on 12/28/2016.
I was rescued from a puppy mill and I was so lucky that LSWR dropped everything and immediately came for me. I was a little scared getting out of the crate after the transport, but as soon as I got out of the car and saw a nice yard with green grass, I perked right up!! I marched in like I owned the place. I have grown up with other Westies so I would be okay with another Westie or even just me. I’m a little “fireball” as I have huge energy and I love the backyard.
Many things are new to me so I will need time, patience & training. I’m just learning how to walk on a leash and learning about potty manners. I’m also learning that it’s okay to come in the house and now I run back in fast! I will need a family that has that has the time and patience to teach me so many new things.
My shots are up to date and I will be neutered and have a dental in the next week. I am a wonderful Westie bear and I am looking for a wonderful life. Is it with you?

Hi folks, I’m cutie Chloe! Due to trying circumstances, my family could no longer keep me, so they made the difficult but right to call LSWR because they only want the BEST for me.
Let me tell a little bit about myself. I’m estimated to be about 8 and ½ – 9 years young and in excellent health. I have been very well cared for, as you can tell from my lovely pictures. I get along great with other dogs, love going for walks & doggie park and LOVE playing ball. I’m very playful and get excited when it’s play time. I’m good in my crate but I also have full roam of the house because I’m such a good girl! I’m potty trained and I do exceptionally well on a leash. Balls and squirrels are my favorite and I know tons of commands. I wait patiently as my meals are being prepared, and I greet visitors very nicely. I have been an only pup in my home, but I get along great with other dogs. Young children/toddlers make me nervous so I would not be a good fit with young children. I am 21 pounds, spayed and up to date on all my shots. I’m just a girl who wants to play and have FUN, not to mention I’m a beautiful spunky girl.
I’m a super sweet girl and I see my future with a loving family who dotes on me 24/7. I am looking for a new “leash” on life, would you be my new family? Hope to hear from you soon.

Hello everyone, We’re Mazie and Milo and we are the new kids on the block. We started off our years in a puppy-mill, but thankful some good rescue groups helped us get a second chance. We are both estimated to be about 6-7 years old and we are in excellent health. Milo is the smallest one of the pair weighing in at 15 pounds and I weigh 17 pounds.
We are a very bonded pair and get along great with each other. Milo is great with all Westies and I’m good with male Westies but I’m NOT compatible with other female dogs.
We both sleep in our crates at night and doing good on potty training. Sometimes Milo magically appears in my crate and likes to snuggle with me. Some of our favorite activities include sunbathing and chasing critters in the backyard. And for the record we are both SUPER FAST!! For a little guy, Milo, has a loud bark and so do I. Milo also likes to howl at the fire engine sirens when he hears them, it’s quite comical!!
I’m the leader of the two and Milo follows me around all the time. Anything I do, he does. I’m a super sweet girl and I’m going to blossom into a beautiful girl. I’m super affectionate and will thrive with love and patience. When we’re outside Milo and I wrestle and chase each other, we’re a hoot!!
Any family willing to give Milo and I a little love and take a whole lot of love in return would be the most perfect fit for us. Our shots are current, and we are microchipped. We will be spayed, neutered and have dentals in a few days and then we will be ready to meet our new family. We will need a loving and active family who understands Westietude and can continue our training.
So, what lucky family is out there just waiting for us?
Please NOTE: Mazie & Milo are not good apartment pets. They need a secured fenced in yard. No cats or children. LSWR does not ship our pets. Submit an application if you meet the above requirements.
I was found and picked up by a local shelter. I had been wandering the streets for a while and eating my meals from garbage cans. I was very skinny when I came into foster care on 3/7/20, but all that is behind me now!!
I am a very young Terrier mix. I’m estimated to be about 1 year old so I’m still ALL PUPPY. I’m spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. I’ve been a great house guest in my foster home and have brought them so much joy, love and affection, humans and Westies included.
I have learned potty manners and I’ve proven that I’m a very smart girl and willing to obey all the house rules. Like I mentioned earlier, I’m all puppy which means I’ve torn up a few things, which is what puppies do, but I’m learning quick. I’m a little “fireball” as I have huge energy. I play hard and love playing chase with my Westie foster buddies. I love my toys and squeakers. I am super sweet and love attention and being petted. I’m working on my manners when greeting guests because I get so excited when family and friends visit but I’m making progress and will need to continue my training. I’m not too sure about this “leash” thing because I want to run and run and pull on the leash, there’s just so many things to explore. I really want a home/family that have LOVE and TIME for me. I also want a home with a fenced yard and a puppy companion would be great to keep up with my active life style.
I am one happy and lucky girl so you better hurry, I am a great catch!
