Braxton has come a long way since he joined LSWR in September. He was very thin when he came into foster care but with the care of our vet we discovered he had a condition called EPI (Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency). EPI is a disease of mal-digestion and mal-absorption, which when left untreated eventually leads to starvation. We are so very happy to report managing his treatment of supplementation with pancreatic enzymes, has been successfully treated and regulated!!! Braxton is all Westie and made of tough stuff weighing in now at 18 pounds and looks amazing!!!
He is thriving in his foster home and loves the company of the other Westies. Braxton will be the first to tell you he loves sharing a comfy recliner with his foster Dad. He is a very active 10 year old and quite vocal as well, he’s a talker! He loves to chase after the birds and squirrels and can smell them a mile away. He loves the great outdoors and knows how to use a doggie door. He is potty trained, vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. He sleeps in a crate at night and gets along great with pets & loves human companions. Braxton’s ideal home would be one with a doggie door and a fenced in backyard.
This little guy is sure to nudge his way into your heart and give you his heart forever. Braxton is a perfect Westie and he is ready for his new family, are you the one? Please visit lswr.us to complete an online application and inquire about Bright Braxton
Our girls have found their furever home! A note from Bella & Sasha:
We are so happy to be home with Mama Teresa and Papa Jim! We have a great big back yard that we explore together, and I just love to give kisses to my new humans! Of course, Sasha is being her laid-back self… she acts like she’s been here forever! We are so thankful to be together and with a family who loves us to the moon and back!
Hello, friends! Bella & Sasha here!
Our owner had to surrender us, but God blessed the broken road – LSWR found us and scooped us right up! We told LSWR that we are in great health, but we still had to go visit the vet (we don’t know why they didn’t just take our word for it!). Of course, the vet agreed with us! We’re two very healthy 12 year old sisters! We are the very best of friends, and we love to give Westie kisses. We also get along with other dogs… as long as they want to chase birds and squirrels with us! We are very lady-like… no potty accidents in our foster home. The only difference you’ll find in us is is that I, Bella, am a laid back girl, while my silly sister, Sasha, is a spitfire and is always clowning around. We still play with each other just like we did as puppies.
I, Bella, am in the red collar and sis Sasha is in the purple collar.
We are ready for some fun whenever you are! Please submit an application to meet us… we’re tons of fun!

Stanley’s Happy Tail!
Well… all I can say is… that was FAST! I’ve been adopted into the best fur-ever home with the Kaplan’s! That’s right- you can call me Stanley Kaplan now! My awesome fosters, Mary & Stephen, knew as soon as I met the Kaplan family that we were a match made in Heaven! I even have three brothers to play with! This picture is us earlier today having our mid-morning snooze after play time in the yard. Playing chase with four boys deserves a good nap!
I couldn’t be happier! Thank you to everyone for their help and well wishes!
LSWR would like to introduce our newest friend, Stanley! Stanley has been a sad little guy lately – his mom passed away two months ago and he’s been staying with family. Unfortunately, they can’t keep him, but they came to the right place! We are so excited to take Stanley in. He had a wonderful mom and is in excellent health. He’s 9 years old and came in current on all vaccines and heart worm meds. Even neutered! He is a young 9 year old guy – could easily pass for 5! He has the most robust bark and is just a happy go lucky boy! He will make an excellent companion – he’s great with both kids and other dogs.
Please let us know if you’re interested in meeting Stanley. Please complete our application located on the left side of our Facebook page or on our website at www.lswr.us.
Thank you from LSWR & Stanley!
I hope everyone is having a special Monday… I know I am! My foster mom just told me some very special words that the vet said about me… “Annie was a train wreck, but this beloved abandoned sweet girl, has a life well worth living and deserves to sleep in a warm soft bed, and know love and compassion!”
I looked a little rough when I went into the vet, as you’ll see in my picture below… and, unfortunately I had various issues… some of which we are still working through. However, I was well enough to go to my new foster home over the weekend, and mom says I am just a lovebug! A few things about me that my fur-ever home will need to know: I’m a 10 year old girl, potty-trained and very lady-like. I am both blind (I will always need eye drops) and deaf but that doesn’t keep me down – I love to prance around like a pony in the backyard! I’m also on the path to recovery from heartworms and some skin issues. I’ll be spayed and have some dental work soon, too! I’m just considering it as some time at the spa & salon!
I’m being very well taken care of with my foster family… my friend, Sydney, and I like to lay by each other at nap time.
I’m so glad to have the warm, soft bed that the vet mentioned. I’m excited to keep everyone posted on my progress, and I would love to hear from anyone interested in knowing more about me!
BB & Rosie’s Happy Tail!
Happy Monday from the happiest couple around! We, BB & Rosie, are on cloud nine! We had the best road trip to our new fur-ever home and are L-O-V-I-N-G it in Kansas City, MO! The surroundings suit us, don’t you think? Our new Mom, Dad & Sister love their new cute twinkies, and we sure do love them back! Just look at our first family photo! Papa Larry said that Mama Judy got all of the kisses on the car ride home ONLY because he was busy driving. 🙂 Papa Larry also said that this is a true fairy tale ending… we are all going to live happily ever after!

We’re the two best friends anyone could ever have… Billy Bob & Rosie!
The last year has been tough on us. We survived a flood last year by floating on a mattress with our other best friend, Mom, until we were rescued, but now she has become too ill to care for us. We are 8 & 12 years old, and Mom has loved and cared for us every second of those years. We will miss being with her very much, but we still have each other and are currently on our way to the DFW area to settle in and begin our search for our new fur-ever home together!
More to come on our move!
Billy Bob & Rosie
