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

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.

Your friend,
Tugger

This Westie boy, Tugger, is in rough shape and will definately ‘tug’ at your heart strings as seen by the attached photo. He is in foster care with John & Steph Wisecarver and Crossroads Animal Shelter. Tugger is a “special needs” boy that will require some extra funds to get him well and ready for adoption. This will take some time and obviously more finances than a typical foster dog. He needs help!

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
Attn: Tugger the Westie Fund
