Hi folks, I’m Wally.  I found myself in the middle of a busy street with lots of traffic all around me and taken to a local shelter.  Am I just about the cutest little boy you have ever seen?  I’m a small little guy weighing in at 13 pounds, but my foster mom tells me I look like a puppy!!  I am 2 years young.  I may be small but I have a big hearty terrier attitude.  I am a great walker and I’m potty-trained.  I’m getting the hang of sleeping in a crate and now I even go in there on my own.  It appears I may not have had too much human contact before coming to rescue so I’m getting the hang of this thing called “petting”.  In fact, I’m starting to get excited and wag my tail when my foster mom returns home. I’m working on gaining a little weight but it won’t be difficult, I love food and treats.  I’m also vaccinated, neutered and micro-chipped.  I’m also good with other dogs but I’m okay being the only dog also but I will pass on the cats please.  I want a home without children so that I don’t get confused and grumpy about whose toys belong to who. I’m getting used to chillin’ with my humans.

I wish for a fun and caring family who will have lots of time to help me grow up.  If I sound like I’m your guy, please complete the online application on the LSWR website.

I’ll be waiting patiently!!

XOXO Wally

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!

Stay dry!

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!


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! **ADOPTED**

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,

Archie happy tail


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?!

Little Leo **ADOPTED**


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 lswrvolunteers@verizon.net.


Westie Wes! **ADOPTED**


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!

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,
