Bright Braxton!

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

XOXO,
Braxton

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,
Dewey

Amazing Annie! **ADOPTED**

Our precious, sweet, loving little Annie is now in her fur-ever home with her amazing new mom!

_____________________________________________________________
We have some Amazing Annie updates for you all on this Monday morning! Please take a moment to read all about this special little girl!
Through no fault of her own, Annie found herself wandering the streets of Dallas in early June. Raggedy and shaggy, she weighed 14 pounds, blind, had an injured left eye, possibly deaf, not spayed, had an upper respiratory infection, and had dental gum disease.She was so matted and flea infested, that the shelter had to shave her at intake.Imagine how afraid and alone she must have felt! No familiar smells; no familiar petting and the scent of fear everywhere! Just all alone!!! Heartbreaking!!! It was evident that this little sweetheart had been horribly neglected. Annie was CODE RED and there was no time to hesitate!
Estimated to be around 10 years of age, she was one of the lucky ones to make it out of the shelter alive. Just as our senior citizens are sometimes disregarded or brushed aside, so too are our senior pets. Annie came into foster care on 6/29 and spent her first few days at the vets getting over her upper respiratory infection. She arrived in her foster home on 7/2 and has blossomed! Since arriving in her foster home, Annie has learned to get around inside and out. Since sight is not a dog’s primary sense and dogs no matter what degree of lost vision or hearing or both, including total loss of both, go on living full lives in safe and secure homes.
Annie may not technically be able to hear… but she CAN hear!! She knows her name and her little tail does a happy dance when you tell her it’s time eat. She loves to eat and loves treats. She is a love-bug and snuggle bug. She is happy snuggling next to her human on the couch or sleeping next to another furry friend. Annie is also potty trained. Annie was recently spayed and had her left eye removed and she is recuperating beautifully and taking her meds like a champ. She is vaccinated and micro-chipped and will be having a dental in another month or so.
Annie, though horribly neglected in her past, has rebound amazingly well with the medical attention she needed, a good diet, and with TLC, something this little Sweetheart clearly had not had in a long time. She has a sweet, gentle soul, loves the company of dogs and people and a very special girl looking for that very special family.
Could your home be that special family for this sweet girl? Please complete an online application and ask for Annie!

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!

xoxo,
Bella & Sasha

Sweet Stanley! **ADOPTED**

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!

Love,
Stanley

Stanley Happy Tail

________________________________________________________

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!

Annie the Lovebug! **ADOPTED**

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!

Kisses,
Annie

Two Best Friends… meet Billy Bob & Rosie! **ADOPTED**

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!

XOXO,
BB & Rosie

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!

Love,
Billy Bob & Rosie
