Tally, a Cairn/Westie/Schnauzer mix needs a new home. This 6 1/2 year old is a healthy, happy girl looking for a new family. If you are interested in Tally, please email Sue at email@example.com
Here’s what Marc says about Tally
My family is looking to find a great home for our dog Tally. Our one year old daughter has a severe allergy to pet dander and we haven’t had any luck over the past few months mitigating the dander in the house. So unfortunately, we have to try and find another happy home for Tally.
Tally is a 6 1/2 year-old “Avon Terrier” that we adopted when she was around 7 months old. Basically, she is a Cairn/Westie/Schnauzer mix. She has a great temperament and is very well behaved. She walks well on a leash (although doesn’t like to share the sidewalk with another passing dog). She is kennel trained and loves to lounge in there with the door open. She has been spayed and is up to date on all her vet visits. We went through several rounds of obedience training at K9 Coach when she was younger. We can’t say enough good things about her and wish we didn’t have let her go. We live in the Mendota Heights area of the Twin Cities.
This darling girl has what is so typical of her breed, allergies. While I cannot guarantee it would work, I’d strongly suggest whoever adopts her tries out a raw food diet for her, a la “Sid’s Canine Kitchen” (an instructional DVD that explains how to make your own raw-dog-food diet for your beloved pets, available now if you email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and soon to be on my website). Seriously, we’ve had several Westies with allergy issues that cleared up by switching to this diet. Don’t let that detail keep you from giving this girl a forever home!—Sid
Meet Ms. Duffie!
Duffie, a sweet 8-year old Westie girl, is still in need of a new home. This mature, loveable and very sweet girl is looking for a special family that can meet her needs.
This darling Westie is ready-made in many ways – she is crate trained, good with other dogs, is an obedience school graduate (knows several commands) and loves to be with you all the time. She likes to sit on your lap or next to you to watch TV or just chill out.
Duffie needs an owner that must be tolerant of her skin issues due to allergies. She will need occasional medicated baths (she is well-behaved during her bath), a good diet and daily checks of her skin to prevent or catch “hot spot” flare-ups before they get out of hand.
She needs to lose a little weight so exercise is a must. She is used to a fenced yard so she likes to chase squirrels; however she is also a good leash walker which will help in her weight loss program. She likes to walk and investigate her surroundings – she can run, too!
Duffie is a charming older girl that still has plenty of pep in her! Could she be your next Westie?
Duffie is available for adoption through Lacy’s Legacy Scottie & Westie Rescue.
If you are interested in adopting her, please contact John or Steph Wisecarver at
Help Dotty find a home!
Birthdate (estimated): 6/1/09
I love attention, and like to play!
I have lived in a home my whole life, but ended up in a shelter because my family couldn’t keep me.
I get along well with everyone. I like to hog all of the attention and would be just fine as an only dog.
I would rather not live with cats, unless they can commit to leaving me alone. They freak me out!
I need a home that can give me the love I deserve.
Meet Jasper the Friendly Westie!
Jasper is a honey of a Westie looking for a new home. He is a young and active 9 year old, neutered and tested heartworm negative. He recently had a dental so he has a bright, clean smile now, too.
This little man is VERY house trained (NO accidents at all during his foster care). He knows a few commands, does well in a crate if necessary and is not a barker. He also gets along well with other dogs and is very affectionate.
Jasper’s foster dad says he is “just a prize!” Says he is calm and gentle and loves being outside in the yard. A couple of photos of Jasper are attached so you can see how handsome this little man is!
If you are interested in adopting this “prize of a Westie”, please call Steph Wisecarver at 763-354-0911
Hi Westie friends,
Do you remember me? Tugger? Remember when I first appeared on your computer screen, bald and looking pretty pathetic? I know I tugged at your heart strings so my name was very appropriate back then! Thanks again to all of you who donated to my cause. I’m a lucky boy to be on the receiving end of such Westie love.
Well, look at me now - I’ve got hair! I’m not a hairy beast by any means, but I’ll get there….hairy – not beastly.
Now comes the exciting news…I’m ready to be adopted! My foster folks have given the green light to let me go. They said the response to my treatments has been positive and I’ve progressed enough to go to a permanent family. They are sad to see me go, but they are bursting at the rafters with dogs at their house.
I’m guessing you want to know some details about me, so here’s the low-down:
I’m 3 years old and healthy – of course I’m up to date on everything medical – I’ve been to the vet clinic so much in the past couple of months that Dr. Sarah and I are BFFs. You will definitely want your vet to meet me and stay on top of the care I’ve been getting so I don’t fall into the same bald trap I am coming out of. At this time, I’m on NO medications – just a medicated bath twice per week. Foster mom and dad will send some of that special shampoo with me. It’s a part of my life now. Just put in on and let it sit for 10 minutes or so. We can have heart-to-heart chats during that 10 minutes or you can sing to me. Oh, I’m on NO special diet anymore either.
Other endearing things about me….I get along great with other dogs – I love to play with toys, too. I’ve visited cats at Crossroads Shelter and seem to be okay with them. I’m house trained and crate trained. When I can, I sneak into bed with Foster mom and dad and curl up into a little tight ball and lie real still so I can spend the night in bed with them. I’m not really a lap dog, but I like to be very near you. Do you like to sit and watch tv or read? I’ll join you!
I know “sit” but would be willing to learn lots more. I’m getting better with leash walking but a harness is what works best for me. My adoption fee is a mere $150.
Boy, I’m sounding pretty good, aren’t I? Do you think we are a match made in heaven? If so, give my foster folks a call and you all can talk about things. John and Steph Wisecarver’s number is 320-963-6085.
Hi Westie Friends!
My name is Tugger – some of you have met me before – I look a little different from the first photos you saw. As you know, I am being treated for a yeast condition that took away almost all my hair! I was naked and itchy and looking pretty rough. Thanks to so many kind and generous people, my treatments costs are being covered and my foster mom and dad (John and Steph) are taking good care of me. I get spa treatments several times a week. I have to sit still for 10 minuteswith the special stuff on me….this is difficult for a young Westie!! 10 minutes is a long time to sit so I can’t wait to get rinsed and dried off so I can start playing again.
Here’s a couple photos to show you that my hair is starting to grow back. So it’s true that good care and lots of TLC will take a doggie a long way.
Thanks again for all your donations to help me. It’s overwhelming to learn that so many people care so much about a little white (soon to be all white) doggie like me.
Rocky and Melvin have found new homes! Yeah!!!
Now, do you have room in your home and heart for a pair of sweet Westie orphans?
Angus and Bonnie found themselves homeless when their elderly owner died. Angus is 11, Bonnie is 6. They are up-to-date with all of their health needs, housebroken, well-loved and move-in ready! This lad and lassie will make a nice addition to a family needing a couple of Westies to spice up their lives!
If you are seriously interested in adopting Angus & Bonnie, please direct your questions to John and Steph Wisecarver at 320-963-6085.
If you can, please consider an monetary donation to Crossroads for Tugger. We know finances are tight for everyone, but small amounts add up and little Tugger will be forever grateful.
Please send your donations for Tugger to:
Crossroads Animal Shelter

It’s just plain wrong that there are so many Westie seniors in need of re-homing these days. Here’s one more that needs your help:
Check out Rocky! He needs a new home!
Quick Facts on Rocky
11 years old, but young acting and healthy
UTD on shots
Friendly and Active – like to play
Good with other dogs

From Rocky’s FosterMom:
Rocky is very loving and wants to be with you at all times. He follows you from room to room. He is playful and doesn’t act his age. Vet believes he is younger due to his health condition being so good. Rocky gets along with other dogs if they are not aggressive towards him. Leg lifting has subsided with the wearing of a belly band; Remember - he has just been neutered after 11 years! Rocky needs some training as he knows no commands, however he does know the word “no”. He is crate-trained.
Rocky’s adoption fee is $200.

Melvin is a handsome, healthy Westie boy who unfortunately grew up in a neglectful environment. He will need a home without children, and a dedicated Westie person who can provide lots of love, patience, and one-on-one, experienced training with gentle discipline. He wants to be with you and follows me everywhere. He is sweet and affectionate. He loves to play fetch and will put the ball or whatever in your hand to continue the game. He will also destroy the toy in short order if you allow him to chew on it.
