Meet Frankie, an adorable 10-month old male Westie. He is all puppy, very active, playful and very smart. Frankie came to rescue because his family didn’t have the time to devote to a puppy. Thankfully, they called LSWR. Frankie loves other Westies, treats and stuffed toys. He is neutered and micro-chipped. He is 95% potty-trained and sleeps in his crate.
He will need a home without small children under the age of 8 years and no cats. He also needs a fenced in yard so he can run and play. He would thrive in a home with another dog his size and age range that can keep up with a Westie puppy.
If you have the time to devote to Frankie, please visit lswr.us and complete an online application.
Please note: we do NOT ship our pets. If you have a pool, LSWR requires you have a fence around the pool for a safe environment for a puppy.
LSWR does NOT have a shelter, all applicants need to be approved before meeting a foster.
Hi all! Quincy here! When I joined Lone Star Westie Rescue on 10/27/17, I had severe skin, ear and eye infections. I was not feeling my best, that’s for sure.
LSWR quickly got me to their vet for an exam and my vet started me on medications and special dog food that I needed to get healthy again. Then off to foster care I went! My foster family has taken such great care of me, I got the medicated baths I needed, made sure I had my daily meds, took me on long walks in the neighborhood, and gave me tons of love and attention. I have blossomed while I was in their care. My foster mom said I have been the sweetest and bestest Westie housemate she’s ever had. I am so well mannered, potty-trained and I get along great with other dogs. My skin is looking great and my hair is growing back. I am neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and I also had a dental. I take daily eye drops for dry eye and I’m a champ with those eye drops. I am the most perfect 8 year old Westie one could ever imagine. I am so incredibly sweet and gentle.
I can assure you that I have reclaimed my life and enjoy being that awesome Westie that I was mean’t to be. A Westie without a care in the world, yep that’s me… Quincy!! All I wish for is a really super great family for a super great Westie like me.
XOXO Quincy (aka Little Buddy)
We’re new to Lone Star Westie Rescue. My name is Joplin! And I’m Jagger!
We’ve been together all 6 years of our lives and need a new home where we can stay together. Our mom became ill and had to go to a nursing home, so Lone Star Westie Rescue was called upon to find us a new, loving “forever” home.
Excuse me just a minute… Joplin wants to ask me a question on her behalf:
“Jagger, some people call me bossy. Do you think that’s true?”
“Well, Joplin, you definitely want to be the alpha dog of the family, but I’m ok with that because I have a very laid back personality.”
Needless to say, we do best in a home where there’s just the two of us! Oh, and no cats please!
We are spayed and neutered, microchipped, and up to date on our vaccinations. We are house-trained and walk on a leash. The perfect combo!
Hey, everybody! You know me as Skittles, but I have a new name now–it’s Dallas.
When I came to Lone Star Westie Rescue, I had severe skin, ear and eye infections. I was not feeling my best, that’s for sure.
LSWR quickly got me to their vet for an exam and she put me on the medications and special dog food that I needed to get healthy again.
Then off to foster care I went! My foster parents, Lauren and Jim , took such good care of me.They gave me the medicated baths I needed, made sure I had my daily meds, took me on long walks in the neighborhood, and gave me tons of love and attention. I blossomed while I was in their care.
Next thing you know, LSWR posted my story on their social media and a wonderful family fell in love with me and adopted me this week!
Their previous Westie went to the Rainbow Bridge last Fall and they were looking for a new furkid to love. They wanted me!!❤️
I am living a great life now; I’m the only furkid in the home so I get all the family’s love and attention and I get to sleep in the big bed with them and I have a fishing dock in my back yard. Boy, do I love rolling around in dead fish if I find them! Mom says I shouldn’t do it, but it’s so much fun!
I know I will be forever loved and taken care of.
Big Westie hugs and kisses to my foster family, Lauren and Jim. Thank you for getting me on the road to recovery!
Thank you to LSWR for rescuing me and thank you to my new family for giving me a second chance at life.
Now presenting…… Just Jack!
Jack is a bunch of awesome in a small package! He has a sweet disposition and is absolutely loving life! He is between 1 – 3 years old (probably closer to the younger side based on his puppy behavior!). While Jack is working on becoming the perfect companion, he will need some consistency in his home… he knows how to “work the system” and take advantage of any change in the rules.🙂 He is very smart and easy to correct; however, he is a terrier, after all!
Jack has a very soft coat that will need regular grooming. He loves to be by your side regardless of the activity. Want to go for a walk – ok! Want to rest a bit – works for him!
Jack is good with children but should be in a home with kids who understand how to respect and treat animals. Jack does guard resources (toys and food) from other dogs. He gets along well with other dogs but does like to slightly dominant. It is important that Jack and any other dog companions understand their humans are the top dogs – not them.
Jack can be a bit of an escape artist… he is learning to wait patiently at the door to go outside. He also knows how to use a pet door and can be trusted in the house if given access to the doggie door.
Jack is an active, young dog that is interested in learning new things. If you are looking for a great dog interested in being an active part of your life, Jack is the companion you’ve been looking for!

Dottie update 8.30.17
When I arrived at LSWR, I was in terrible shape. I had ear and eye infections and my skin and coat were in bad shape. Despite not feeling well, the entire vet staff said I was so very sweet and such a trooper to go through all the vetting exams. Fast forward to today and take a good look at me now!
My infections are pretty much gone and my coat is coming back. It is amazing what TLC, medicated baths, excellent vet care, and a healthy diet can do for a gal like me. Now that I’m better, I’m going to have a dental very soon. Then it won’t be long before I join a very lucky family to call me their very own. You won’t believe how incredibly sweet I am until you meet me. I am a very happy girl and very soon I’m going to make a family VERY HAPPY!
This post is about a new intake named Dottie. Dottie won’t be writing this post herself 🙂, her foster mama is going to! I’m taking this one over because Dottie wouldn’t do herself justice and compliment herself as profusely as I am about to!
I had the pleasure of welcoming Dottie into my home this past Friday, and I must say – she may be the sweetest, most gentle Westie I have ever met.
Dottie is a Westie/Poo mix. Unfortunately, her owner became unable to properly take care of Dottie, so she surrendered her to LSWR. Dottie is 8 years old, potty trained, is comfortable with a crate (though she loves to sleep in bed and snuggle!), walks like a perfect little lady on a leash and she is great with other dogs once they’ve established who gets to be the alpha! She’s a playful girl (loves playing with her foster brother & sister) and adores belly rubs, as you’ll see from the pics!
Dottie does currently have some skin/allergy issues that are being addressed. She has already started medication to clear up her belly area and let some of that soft, white fur grow in! In just a few days, she is looking 10 times better!
If you’re ready for your furever buddy, Dottie is ready for you!
Please complete an application at www.lswr.us and mention “Dottie”!
Jazzie update 8.30.17
We want to share some wonderful news on Jazzie. Fast forward to today and Jazzie has made great improvements. As you can tell from her recent pictures, her skin is healing her hair is growing back. She loves her foster buddy, Scout and loves to run along with him chasing birds, squirrels and anything that steps foot in their year.
We are grateful Jazzie has made a remarkable recovery and continues making daily progress. LSWR will cater to all her needs and show her the love and kindness she so deserves. Jazzie is going to make a great Westie companion to a very special family.
We are relieved that Jazzie is now in our foster care program where she will get everything she needs. Her owner’s life crumbled right before her very eyes, and it is apparent Jazzie spent her life in a neglectful situation.
Jazzie spent her first first five days with LSWR getting vetted, receiving good meals and medicated baths. She is now in her foster home with two Westie companions, who are helping her feel right at home. Despite her neglectful past, Jazzie is a very sweet Westie. She gets very excited on her evening walks and keeps up with her Westie pals. She is running and barking along with her foster buddies and loves to come home to get her spa baths. She is a doll!! She allows her foster mom to soak her for 10-15 minutes in the medicated baths, never complaining or even trying to get out of the tub. We believe Jazzie will make a full recovery as she is making daily progress. LSWR will cater to all her needs and show her the love and kindness she so deserves.
Jazzie is spayed and estimated to be about 10 years. Once we get her skin issues under control, she will receive a much needed dental. Please stay tuned for more updates on her progress.
Welcome to rescue life Jazzie – you are a sweet and gentle survivor!
