Hi everyone, my name is Toodles, I know funny name for a girl right but it fits me just right. Not sure why I ended up in a local shelter, I have a microchip but I guess no one wanted me. I huddled in the back of cage, waiting and waiting. The shelter contacted LSWR to see if they’d help an 11-year old girl like me. And then suddenly I heard someone tell me that it was going to be okay because LSWR wanted me and they would find me a great home!
As you might guess, I am not a Westie….I may be a Wheaten Terrier mix. I am a super happy girl and when I get excited to see you, I wiggle my tush & nubby tail. The vet staff said I was super sweet and a very healthy girl.
I am estimated to be 11 years, spayed, microchipped and my shots are current. If you are looking for a sweetheart of a girl who is very grateful for her second chance, then I’m the one. I am house trained and walk great on a leash. I love to hang with humans and just lay on the floor by your feet. I’m easy going, laid back and love going for walks. I’m in a foster home with a Westie gal and a male Westie/Schnauzer and I’m doing okay with them but I would really enjoy a home where I’m the only pet.
Please visit lswr.us, complete an application and ask for Toodles. Hope to hear from you soon!
Hi everyone, Wrigley here,
I was found as a stray and no one came for me at the shelter but I happily joined the LSWR family about one week ago. The shelter listed me as a terrier mix so LSWR said “Hey Wrigley, come and stay with us and we will find you a new home”. Wow, this sounded great!
I was all raggedy & matted when I arrived at the vets but I had the best spa day ever!! Come to think of it, I think I heard them say, Wrigley, we think you might be a Poodle Terrier. Who cares, I’m in great hands now and I know I’m going to find a great home.
In the past week, I got a vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and a new haircut. I’m heartworm negative, young and healthy, so I’m as good as new.
The vet staff at Josey Ranch adored me and said I was super sweet, just like the chewing gum. I am one of the happiest, easy going and sweetest pup that you could ever meet. I’m estimated to be 2 years young, maybe a tad younger, appear to be potty-trained, love to ride in the car and romp in the great outdoors. My foster mom agrees that I’m a young pup because I love to nibble on her hands and toys, but I am not a chewer. I am doggie friendly, sleep in my crate, walk great on a leash and come when called – what more is there?
If you have room in your family for a boy like me, visit lswr.us and send in your application. I’ll warm your heart and make you smile.
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.
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!
Introducing Jolly Jezzy!
My name is Jezzy and I am a 10 year old, spayed female Westie. I came to rescue because my loving mom of 10 years is moving to a memory care facility. She and I have lived together since I was 8 weeks old. She has taken great care of me. My mom’s family called LSWR in hopes of finding me a new family. You see, they only want the very best for me!
Let me tell you a little bit about me. As you can tell from my picture, I am as cute as a button! I walk great on a leash and love my furry plush/stuffed toys. I can certainly tell you I am a sweet typical Westie girl full of life and Westietude. This girl just wants to have fun! Although, I’m very friendly and I did have a furry companion for years, I think I’d prefer a home without other dogs so I can get all the love and attention to myself. The vet staff said I was very friendly and with the right dog might be okay in a multiple dog house but I am super sweet with people. I’d also like a fenced in yard and a home without children.
I am potty-trained, well-mannered, adorable and healthy. Please visit lswr.us to complete an online application. I am such a catch and I know a great family will snatch me up – I will dance my way into your heart!!
