Riley has made an amazing recovery since coming to LSWR. His hair has grown back nice and thick and his skin has cleared up, he’s quite the healthy boy. He is a very sweet, loving 10-year old Westie who loves to play chase with his Westie foster brothers. He loves daily walks and squeaky toys. He gets so happy to greet you when you get home and treats you like the most important person in the world. Riley has a great personality, loving, gentle and just a sweetheart. He sleeps soundly in a crate or the bed. One thing we can say with absolute confidence is that Riley is a dog that truly appreciates being rescued. He is a perfect foster pup and we know he’s going to bring lots of joy to his new family.
Hi, I’m Riley. Seven years ago, my family adopted me and during that time things changed.
Sadly, my family’s circumstances got to the point where they could no longer take care of me and didn’t have the time for me that I deserved so they did the right thing and called Lone Star Westie Rescue to see if they would find me a new home.
Lone Star Westie Rescue was more than glad to take me in to their rescue program and quickly arranged for me to go to foster care.
Because of lack of medical care, I have major hair loss on my legs and some loss of hair around my eyes. My foster mom, Linda, took me to the vet right away. The vet said I needed to have medicated baths twice a week and gave Linda pills that I had to take to keep me from itching. Foster mom Linda told me not to worry, that she and Lone Star Westie Rescue would bring me back to good health and I will be as handsome as ever. You can see a couple of pictures of me below with all my beautiful hair and I’ll be looking like that very soon. My hair is growing back on my chest and legs and I’ll be ready for a grooming soon.
I’m a very sweet, loving 10 year old who loves to play chase with my two Westie foster brothers. I also love my daily walks and squeaky toys. I’m 90% house trained and sleep in a crate at night.
I’m looking for a home with people who will shower me with love and attention and I will give you the love right back! And if I get a brother or sister, that’s awesome too!
Are you ready for a loyal companion to share your life and home with? If so, that’s me. Hurry get your adoption application completed and returned to Lone Star Westie Rescue.
I’m Gracie and I want to tell you all about me! My human mom got sick and could no longer take care of me, so her family reached out to LSWR and they gladly stepped in to bring me into foster care.
I am 12 years and very inquisitive. My foster mom is always looking for me around the house! I get along great with the other Westies in my foster home. I weighed 8.9 pounds when
I arrived but I’m up to 13.9 pounds now and looking pretty good!
I’m spayed, vaccinated and recently had a dental and had 8 teeth pulled. I just want a low- key family to spend the rest of my life with and I promise to love you to pieces. I’m so very sweet and my foster mom tells me I’m a beautiful girl. I may not have the best hearing, but I have a very good nose, I can smell snacks, a mile away. I’m also working on my potty skills as they regressed a little when my human mom got sick. I would love a family who works from home, is semi-retired or better yet fully retired. I know it will be love at first sight!
If you are looking for a sweetheart of girl who is very grateful for her second chance, then I am your gal.
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 3 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 while to get used to my foster parents, but now that I trust them, I absolutely love spending time with them. My favorite activity is licking my foster mom and dad’s toes when they get home from work, even though they think it’s “gross”. While I have a very loving personality 99% of the time, I do sometimes struggle with aggression (usually when a human tries to take my toy). For the last few months, I’ve been working with a trainer to iron out some of these issues, and now I’m doing so much better! However, it would still be best if I live in a home without small children.
I would really love a family who will take the time to get to know how sweet and smart I am. Once I get to know someone, I love them from the very bottom of my heart! I also need a family that is willing to be patient while getting to know me, and be willing to follow-through with my training for years to come. If I sound like the right boy for you, please complete an adoption application. I know my right family will come along.

Here are a few of the special pups your donations have helped!!
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.
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.
My name is Daisy Mae and I am a beautiful Westie girl looking for a wonderful family to adopt me. My world just turned upside down because my Mom recently passed away and I’m very sad. My Mom’s family reached out to LSWR in hopes of finding me another wonderful home. My mom was the only family I have ever known and she took excellent care of me!!
Here’s a little bit about wonderful me. I just turned 9 years April 2018 and I’m in excellent shape. I’m spayed, vaccinated, and just had a dental in February. I am a very playful and very loving gal and love to greet everyone I meet. I like to sleep in my crate and I have full roaming privileges because I’m very well mannered. I like to play with toys and I ride well in the car. I have great experience walking on a leash but don’t let me off leash because I’ll be in the next county!! I love older children and love playing with them.
Since I’ve grown up being the only Westie in the home, I would prefer a home where I would still be the one and only pup in the house. I would love to have a nice fenced in backyard and a family who has time to love and spoil me. Trust me, I will play and play if you have the time.
If you think I’m your gal, submit an online application. I will be on the lookout for your application, so send it in soon!
