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.

Your friend,
Tugger
