Happy Howie is looking for his Furever home – ADOPTED

 

Happy Howie,

Hello everyone, I’m Howard but you can call me Howie. I was wandering the streets and animal control picked me up and took me to the shelter where I waited for my owners to come, but they never did. A very nice LSWR volunteer came to save me and here I am.

I’m estimated to be about 1 year old and full of enthusiasm and puppy playfulness. I love fun at all costs. I have learned “no” and mostly listen but hey, I’m a young puppy. My foster mom says I’m super SMART and know some commands like “off”, “drop it” and “sit” is quite solid. I am in a foster home with a huge Great Dane and a few Westies and let me tell you, I LOVE the Great Dane!!!

I am pretty good about going in my crate and love going for walks. I’m so very young that I’m still learning the ropes when other pups don’t want to be messed with. I’m just all about playing and can play for hours. My foster family says I am AWESOME and will be a fabulous companion for a very lucky family!! I really want an active family that has time for me and has experience with young pups like me. I’m neutered, shots are current, microchipped and potty trained. I am a very happy and playful pup. If you have a spot in your heart for me, I will give you mine. Please visit lswr.us and submit your application.

XOXO

Howie

 

 

Adopted!! Billy is looking for a forever home!!

2015-08-15 14.28.16 2015-08-27 09.22.37 2015-08-27 09.23.57

My name is Billy and I’m a transplant to the Dallas area from Austin. I know I don’t look like a typical Westie, but I am pretty spunky. My foster mom says I’m a good boy and I get along with the other fur kids in the house. I like toys, clothes (not to wear: drag around the house), the other fur kids beds, my humans and the other fur kids. I’m 10 months old, but I settle down quick when it’s time to relax.

If you think you can handle all this cuteness, please complete an application!!

Scruffy is looking for a furever home!!!

unnamed3Scruffy 3 unnamed unnamed2

Scruffy here; the newest addition to the LSWR group.   As you can see by my photos, I’m a good looking fella, laid back and like lots of love.  Kids and cats like me because I’m pretty chill and my foster mom says I have good barking manners.  I get very excited when it’s time to go outside, super excited when the humans come home and I do love my squeaky toys!! I’m a 6 or 7 year old male, but who’s counting.  I’ve got this great place to stay while some of my skin issues clear up, but I’m on the market for a new pad.

If you are looking for a new addition to your family, I’m looking for a forever home!

Hope to meet my new family soon!!

Hi Friends,

I’m Rowan, HAPPY to be here with LSWR.   I’m not sure how I ended up at a shelter but thanks to LSWR and my foster mom for bailing me out.

I’m estimated to be 1 – 2 years old and weigh 13 lbs.  I am a fun and active small boy with lots of energy!  When it comes to playtime, I go 90 miles an hour and then conk out for a nice nap.  I’m also quite content to sit in my foster mom’s lap when she’s in her favorite chair.

I’m housetrained, crate trained and I walk well on a leash.  When I’m on my walk, I like to take my time and smell the flowers and take in the cool crisp air.  I get along with other dogs so a playmate is fine by me.  I am ready for my new home and I know my perfect family will snatch me up very soon.

I have lots of love to give you!  Is there a place in your heart for me?

If you want me to be a part of your family, please fill out an adoption application at http://www.lswr.us

Hugs & Kisses,

Rowan

***** Adopted******* Chester is looking for a Furever Home

Chester-1Chester-2

Chester is a well rounded, happy, 1-2 year old Westie imposter.  He has a very high IQ that he doesn’t like to use when he is eating his food.  Let’s say gulping might be his worst trait.  Chester’s foster mom reports that Chester is well behaved, doesn’t bark and scream like a typical Westie, loves other dogs, tennis balls might be his favorite toy, gives random kisses, doesn’t like to sit on the furniture unless invited, and use caution when you are near the ice machine or you might get a nose bump.  Sounds like Chester might need a family with lots of energy and other dogs or maybe Chester just needs a home full of love.  Chester does have that awesome Westie trait, “love the one your with.”  Chester’s is incredibly intelligent and would fit into any situation from becoming a hunting dog to just being a lap dog.  He fits into his foster family’s home within minutes and will have no problem adjusting to a “forever” home.

Hi, I’m Daisy!

I’m a petite, white Schnauzer, around 3-4 years old.  I’m current on my vaccinations, spayed and micro chipped, too.

I was found running on the streets of the big city and boy that was scary!  Thankfully a family took me in temporarily, but they couldn’t keep me so they asked Lone Star Westie Rescue to find me a new furever home.

I’m a 14 lb bundle of love.  I’m potty trained and walk great on a leash and I sleep in a crate!  I love giving kisses and cuddling.  I think I’m pretty much perfect, don’t you?

If you need someone to love, I’m your girl.  Hurry and get your adoption application in to LSWR so we can start our new life together.

See you soon!

Daisy- XOXO

 

** Adopted** Digby is looking for a Furever Home

Digby 1

Hi everyone, my name is DIGBY!   When I came into the foster program, I was in a tough way.  But good food, good care and lots of gentleness and love from the folks at LSWR has me bouncing back in a big way!   I am 12 years young, neutered male, and full of Westie attitude!  I have great confidence and am the “new sheriff” in town at my foster home.   My foster mom is always laughing at my antics because I am full of curiosity and joy and will try anything.  Naturally because I’m a Westie I excel at everything, from helping my foster mom when she digs in her garden, to walks and to training, I am smart and give it my all.  Teach an old dog new tricks, yep, that is me, I learn new rules and routines quickly, happy to fit in.   I am crate trained for night time and when you are away, but I’m also a love bug and want to be about with you when you are home and happy to sleep on the foot of your bed at night.  I’m house trained well, and first out the door to potty, even in the rain, better than some of the others I live with!  I jump up and clap my paws together when I am excited about something, especially dinner time.  I have some slight age related vision issues, but nothing that interferes and boy I don’t miss a treat tossed to me!   I love to be with my people, whatever they are doing, and that love bug stuff, yeah I really enjoy to snuggle up on the couch and watch your favorite shows with you.  I prefer to be your primary dog, but with the right buddies I can get along fine as long as I’m the alpha dog and getting my fair share of your attention.  After all, I want my own people and will be the best boy I can be, which naturally will be awesome… cause I’m DIGBY the Westie!

Boomer and Karma **ADOPTED**

Boomerkarma1

Will you open your heart and home to Boomer and/or Karma?

These two wonderful Westies are still looking for that person or family who will love them and take good care of them as they go through life.

Boomer is in our Walking Them Home program; at 15 years young, he is starting to slow down and needs a great home where he can live out the rest of his life. Lone Star Westie Rescue will pay for all of his medical and other needs for as long as needed. He’s a very sweet guy who loves belly rubs and attention. He can go on short walks. He does have some health issues, but those are being managed with medications.

Karma, at 13 years young, is still very active. She loves walks and squeaky toys. She’s a very healthy, spry girl! She will do best as the only pet in the home and no children.

Boomer and Karma have been together all of their lives. We would prefer that they stay in the same home where they are the only furkids, but we are open to the possibility of placing them separately if we can find the right homes for each.

Boomer and Karma

Boomer wanted to tell everyone our story, but I think I have a better handle on how this all works.  I’m Karma and I have never been without Boomer; he was all of 2 years old when I showed up.  We had a great life together for many years with the same family, but life happened and our circumstances changed then LSWR answered our mom’s call for help.   We saw the dogtor and went to our foster homes, but Boomer was sad without me.  His foster mom, my foster family and LSWR decided it would be best if we stayed together and now we are hanging in our foster home until our new forever family finds us!  Boomer was so relieved to see that he didn’t leave my side for 2 days. The dogtor says we are a good looking couple and in great health.

Now for the good part, me! I love to run, play, eat, and help my foster mom with gardening.  I’m irresistible and if you don’t think so, I’ll sit up on my hind quarters waving my paws to make sure you are not missing any cuteness. When the door opens to go out I’m first in line and second to the last one in. I thought I was a good swimmer, but I over estimated my abilities. It’s so hard to be humble when you have so much going for you.  I could go on about me, but I’d like to tell you about my older brother, Boomer. He’s a laid back Westie and loves….well me! He likes his belly rubbed, exploring the backyard, food and again me. He too sits on his hind quarters for dinner and treats, but hasn’t perfected the “paw waving” technique that I have mastered.  He’s a bit hard of seeing and uses me as a guide in new places.  Once he has the lay of the land there is no stopping him.

Please check out our pictures and video for more irresistible cuteness!!

Kisses and Cuddles,

Karma & Boomer

Grace’s Happy Tail

20141222_181852

My Christmas wish came true and I was adopted by a great couple.  I can’t thank my foster family enough for all the great TLC they provided me.  They nursed me through after my surgery and then a dental. I was their first foster and they said I was just the most perfect little Westie girl.  I really liked my foster buddy, Deuce and he was a great Westie role model.

Thanks to LSWR and my wonderful foster family, Pam, Al & Deuce for saving me and giving me a wonderful start to a great New Year!!

XOXOXO
Grace

Jackson Needs a Furever Home

Hello, Friends! I’m Jackson!

These Texas summers sure are hot. I know because I was found wandering the streets in the heat. A man picked me up and took me to a safe place, but no one came to take me back home, so Lone Star Westie Rescue saved me.

I am about 2 years old, a Westie imposter and a whopping 7 lbs! I need to be fattened up a bit, but that doesn’t slow me down! I have a lot of energy, especially in the morning after I wake up.

My new family will have to be patient and eager to train and coach me in proper behavior. I’m eager to please and I’m very smart and curious about learning. My foster Dad played a game with me called “sit” and in 5 minutes I was the winner. I even remembered how to play it again the next day! My new family will also need lots of time to interact with me because I’m more than just a lap dog – I am Super Dog, but I don’t have a cape yet.

I like other dogs and neighborhood patrols are the highlight of my day!

If you’re looking for a great little companion like me, why don’t you fill out the adoption application and let’s become a family!

Xoxo,
Jackson

Rooney Needs a “Furever” Home (Update)

 

rooney101rooney102

It’s me Rooney. Foster mum took a few more pictures of me now that my hair is growing in a bit. I heard some whispering the other day that I might not be a full Westie because me ears don’t stand up and no one knows what the ole hair will look like when it comes back. Well let me tell you something, I play like a Westie and I love like a Westie. I’ve got me a little play mate and we are having a blast. I am two years old and all I think about is playing. I’m working on getting my faux-westie-ears to cooperate a little bit better. I’ll get back to you when I can get em to stand up. I am the best boy on the planet and can’t wait to shower my new family with love and laughter.

“Ba-Bam!”
Love Roon (that is short for Rooney)

*Note from LSWR – if you are able to visit Rooney, please do not let him know that he is not a full-blooded Westie. It really hurts his feelings.

If you are interested in adopting our little Westie Impostor, please complete our Online Application above.

 

 

Rooney

Hello everyone, my name is Rooney and I just arrived.  I am an adorable 2 year old, neutered terrier mix, potty trained, current on all my shots and micro-chipped.  I am a fun-loving boy, full of life and high spirits and an all around great dog.  Oh, and I forgot to say I am cute and very smart, too.  I was left alone on a deserted country road to fend for myself but a very nice Samaritan scooped me up and contacted LSWR to help me.

I am a great little guy and am very grateful for my second chance at a happy life.  If you are looking for a great companion and a sweet boy, I would love to hear from you!

XOXO Rooney
