Winston (now Angus)

winston afterA kind couple found Angus wandering the streets in San Antonio and alerted San Antonio Area Scottie & Westie Rescue. We think 4th of July fireworks scared this sweet fellow into running away from his home. When with SAASWR Rescue, he was called Winston. Efforts to find his owners were unsuccessful. Sadly, Winston was not microchipped, or his owners might have been located.

 

 

Winston took up residence in foster care at Doris’ where he enjoyed spending time with her Scottie Lucy. After a few weeks, he went to live with Charles in Leander.  Charles wrote after Winston had settled in: “We are doing very well. Winston, whose name is now Angus, is a totally different dog. He is very friendly and loving. He is still working on some of his fears, but is doing much better. He is still very shy when he meets new people, but warms up to them much faster than when I first got him. When I have to leave him for a short period, as when I go to the grocery store, he greets me as if I had been gone for a week or so.” We understand Angus had a little turkey on Thanksgiving.

Winston went to his new home with talents including being housebroken and able to use a doggy door, plus walking nicely on a leash thanks to a brush-up course from Doris. Of course, Winston was fully vetted by SAASWR, too. Thanks once again for your superb foster care, Doris! (Winston was posted on Texas Scottie Rescue Fund’s website and Facebook in July 2012.)

Charlie

Charlie

Charlie’s been adopted!   Charlie was found on I-35 near New Braunfels by some Good Samaritans.  He’s a sweet fellow and gets along well with people and other dogs.  He’s between 2-3 years old.  He comes when he’s called, is very playful and loves attention.  He’s housetrained, walks on a leash, and can use a doggy door.  He’s fully vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative.  Although he’s in good health otherwise, he had a serious skin infection and had lost about 50% of his fur.  The infection is gone now and he is regrowing hair all over.  You can see in the pictures how thick it is now on the top, but it’s just starting to regrow on his chest.  We’ve had very good success getting westies to grow back full coats with the right diet and care.
