In Memoriam

It is with great sadness that we let you know of the passing of Tom McElroy, a Lone Star Westie Rescue supporter and animal lover.

Tom loved everything about cats and dogs and had a very special bond with his Yorkiepoo, Ben. Tom fell in love with Ben the minute he saw him and showered him with love and attention from that day forward.

Every morning Ben would patiently wait for Tom to take him for a ride in his car around the block. It didn’t matter what the weather was, those two were going to take that ride! The two of them could often be found taking an afternoon nap together in Tom’s big chair. They were never too far from each other.

Tom is pictured here with Sam (the family’s Maltese whom he also loved very much) and Ben.

Tom was a very special man. He will be missed, but never forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to Lone Star Westie Rescue. Please go to our website, www.lswr.us if you wish to make a donation.

 

Charming Charlie! Adopted!

Introducing Charming Charlie!

Hi folks! I’m Charlie and I’m brand new to LSWR.  I was picked up as a stray and taken to a shelter who reached out to LSWR.  My face looked “Westie-ish” so they labeled me a Westie mix and here I am! I may not have all of the Westie traits, but I have a great disposition and am so very sweet.

I am about 4 years old, shots are current, microchipped and neutered. I walk great on my leash and I get along fine with the resident Westies in my foster home.  I even ride great in the car on road trips.  I did great with my bath and a mini-grooming to clean up my face.

So far, my foster mom says I am potty-trained and a super sweet foster.  The only thing she’s noted is that I might be a little escape artist and find a way to try to escape but she has her eye on me.  That could explain how I ended up a stray but no one ever came looking for me.

I am looking for a wonderful family to call my own, and I promise you will love me at first sight. I would be fine in an apartment or a home with a secured fenced in yard. The shelter even said I was fine with the resident cats so you see, I’m all that and a bag of chips!  All I need is a really super family for super cute little me.

XOXO

Charlie

Wally

Hello, my name is Wally and I’m a Cairn Terrier! After being found on a busy street, LSWR rescued me from the local shelter and found me a relaxing foster home to live at until I find my forever family! I’m about 2 years young and weigh in at a light 13 pounds, which makes me a perfect size for snuggling on someone’s lap. I am also vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. It took me a few weeks to really get used to my foster parents, but now I LOVE to snuggle with them on the couch while they watch tv and read books!

Like many dogs, I don’t get along with cats, but I like my foster brother (a small Cairn Terrier) a lot, and don’t mind sharing my toys with him. I even let him help me clean up cheese from the floor with my foster mom “accidentally” drops some. I also need a home without children because I sometimes get a little grumpy when humans take away a toy I am playing with.

My foster parents have me on a regular schedule each day (since they insist on going to work), which I like quite a lot. I’m most comfortable knowing exactly when it is time to eat, potty, play, and sleep. I don’t have a lot of grumpy moments these days, but when I do it is usually because my schedule has been thrown off and I am confused. When it is outside time, I love to lay in the grass and soak up the sun. Sometimes I accidentally roll in the grass just after it has been mowed and turn a little green, but I’m a good boy in the bathtub, so my foster mom doesn’t mind! And when it is time for bed, I jump in my crate and wait patiently for my foster mom to get me a little hotdog piece. I’ll do anything for a hotdog (or any other treat, really)!

I would love to find a forever family who will shower me with love and have lots of time to help me grow up. If I sound like the right boy for you, please complete the online application on the LSWR website.

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!
 
Love,
Seelie

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!

XOXO,
Seelie

Awesome Archie! **ADOPTED**

Happy tails, Archie! We can’t wait to hear more about your new, amazing home!

Hugs & Kisses,
LSWR

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
