sunnie after

sunnie afterSunnie is the sweet young Westie mix whose owners died unexpectedly within a few days of each other, and she has found her forever home. She thanks Texas Scottie Rescue Fund for featuring her on Facebook.  That Facebook posting ultimately led to Sunnie finding the perfect home. Sunnie’s new family had lost their beloved Westie to cancer, and everyone was hoping for another to help fill the hole in their hearts. Sunnie was “it.”

Sunnie can’t believe her good luck.  She now has a Border Collie sister to play with, a wonderful yard to run in, and her very own set of twins (Addison and Madeline) to love and play with her.  Sunnie’s new mom reports that she has settled in well and is dearly loved and happy.

West Texas Scottie Rescue handled Sunnie’s adoption and thanks TSRF for our role in helping make this happy ending possible! Facebook was the first step, and a TSRF application the clincher.  Complete your application for Rescue Scotties, Westies and the occasional other terrier at .  Yes, Texas Scottie Rescue specializes in Scotties, but Westies, Cairns and assorted terriers also come the way of our Rescue Coordinators, and we always want to help.

Sunnie’s original posting read: “Everyone who knows me says my name fits my sweet and happy disposition perfectly.  In spite of going through a very sad time lately, my tail still wags constantly.  I’m two to three years old and am a Westie mix.  My features are predominantly Westie, but there’s a little traveling salesman in my blood somewhere!  My legs are a little longer than standard Westie length, and the back of my ears are a beautiful butterscotch color.  I’m spayed, my shots are current, I’ve had a recent dental and microchip, and tested heartworm and tick fever negative.  I’m very friendly with other dogs, and love every person I meet.  Walking is one of my favorite things and I’m a good girl on a leash.”

TaraTara is the one at the right with new owner Michelle, looking straight at the camera “like the ham she is,” says Westie & Scottie Rescue Houston’s intake coordinator Maggie Escriva. The dignified new “older sister” is nine-year-old Annie at left. Michelle of Kyle adopted Tara in May, 2013.
Barking too much in the apartment is why Tara was turned in at seven months old to a Houston area animal control shelter by her previous owners. Thanks to the good relationship WSRH has with this facility, WSRH was notified immediately and picked up Tara for vetting and future adoption.
The Tara/Michelle love match happened through a Texas Scottie Rescue Fund application. Michelle is a veteran Scottie owner whose previous Scotties lived long, happy lives. The perfect applicant. You, too, can find a love match with one of the Scotties, Westies, or other terriers handled by our Texas Scottie Rescue groups. To apply, complete an application at . Your application will be forwarded to the four Scottish Terrier Club of America-affiliated Texas Rescue programs.
