JillyJilly is looking for her forever home. She’s a 9-year old healthy Westie in search of a fairly quiet home life. Do you work from home? Are you retired and home a lot? If so, Jilly would love to spend her time with you.

She has been in foster care for a while now and has progressed immensely so she’s not as timid as when she first arrived at Lacy’s Legacy’s door. She gets along well with other dogs, enjoys short walks, is not a big barker, is crate trained and housebroken if kept on a fairly strict schedule.

Jilly is a little lap-lover and if your lap is full, she will be near you. Even though her confidence has increased the past few weeks, she occasionally seeks some quiet time alone to ponder the important things in life.
Jilly says that her wild, wayward puppy ways are behind her now and she would just like to settle down and enjoy her new family in a low-key fashion. Is she dreaming or could she be the girl of your dreams?
If you are interested in adopting Jilly, contact John or Steph Wisecarver through http://lacyslegacyrescue.org/

DorieDorie2

Meet Dorie a very cute, quiet and petite Westie girl.  Her birth certificate shows 8-8-05 but she looks like a puppy.  Rescued from a backyard breeder she has learned crate training and her name very quickly.  She walks on her leash and knows “Go Outside.”  Dorie does have an issue with her left front shoulder but other than an occasional limp she moves around fine.  She gets along very well with other dogs and really likes people.  A true lap Westie, she would make a wonderful small companion.

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 lilwhiteterriers@hotmail.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.

Cubby and Toby are 6-year old Westie boys in need of new families.

These boys will be adopted separately.

Both are:

Housebroken, crate trained and they walk well on a leash.

They are good with other dogs, like to play with their toys and ride well in a car.

They have been bathed, groomed and behaved well – even during the nail trim!

They are neutered, heartworm negative and up to date on all vaccinations.

Toby, the big boy at 23 pounds, is a tad shy and reserved, but still very loving.

Toby

Cubby weighs 19 pounds and is very self-confident party boy.

Cubby

Each boy has a $250 adoption fee which will go to Lacy’s Legacy Scottie & Westie Rescue.

These boys are RTG!! (Ready To Go!!) Are you ready for them???

If you are interested in adopting one of these boys, please contact John or Steph Wisecarver from Lacy’s Legacy Scottie & Westie Rescue at 320-963-6085.

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 goodgriefpetloss@gmail.com 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

Help Dotty find a home!

http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/23344555

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.

A big, open-arms welcome to Merlin, our good friend Bill Schiesl’s adorable new sheltie puppy. He’s a handsome blue merle with a proclivity for sleeping on top of tables and, as you can see, under the TV. We can’t wait to have him over for a puppy play date with our Westies. I’m already planning how to distract Bill while I steal Merlin!—Sid

Meet Ada! This young, spunky energetic terrier mix is just waiting for active FUN in her new home. She doesn’t know lots of commands, but she’s got focus and she can JUMP! She needs lots of exercise so her new family can not be couch potatoes. This darling little girl is spayed, vet checked, vaccinated and heartworm negative….she is rearin’ and ready to GO!

If you are wanting an active terrier to spend your fun times with, this is the girl for you! She’s at Crossroads Animal Shelter – she was owner surrendered by someone who didn’t have the time for her…..do YOU have time and love for Ada? Call the shelter if you have more questions about Ada.

Expected adoption donation for Ada is a minimum of $300

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

H/W negative

Neutered

Housebroken

Friendly and Active – like to play

Good with other dogs

Should go to a home withOUT small children


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.

If you are interested in adopting this lovable little fella,

please contact John or Steph Wisecarver at 320-963-6085

An urgent message from Sue Storms about a pair of Westies in need of a new home. More info and photos to come soon, but those who wish to inquire may email me and I’ll forward your query to Ms. Storms. —Sid

Dear Little White Terrier Families,

More information and photos will be coming soon, but I wanted to get word out to you right away on these two boys.

Marshmallow and Rocket are 2 Westie brothers, age 11, that need a new home. They do not have to remain together, however that would be ideal.

These guys are good with kids and other dogs. 

Think about opening up a “retirement home” for one or both of these guys or pass on the word to somebody else you know that may be interested.

Remember that older dogs can still enjoy life and give YOU lots of joy as well. They deserve to have a loving home and a caring family just as much as a younger dog.

I’ll share more info on these brothers in the next few days…….

Sue
