Charli–has been adopted!

WTSR, Charli, Aug. 2013 (1)

WTSR, Charli, Aug. 2013 (1)Friendly & Charming Wants a Home–That’s Charli. She is a sweet 5-year old black Scottie with West Texas Scottie Rescue and loves every person she meets. She was in terrible condition when her owner dropped her off at a shelter to be euthanized. “That was a lucky day for me,” says Charli! Charli’s foster mom and dad in San Angelo, Libby and Ed, were picking up another Scottie from the shelter and couldn’t leave Charli behind.

Charli’s ears were badly infected, her skin had large bald spots from fleas, and she was heartworm positive. Since coming into rescue she’s been treated for heartworms, been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped, and her ears and skin rehabbed. Check out that healthy looking Scottie coat now. Charli brags, “I’m looking and feeling good!”

joy after

joy afterJoy is Spreading Joy, Now in Her New Home in Austin–Jackie met Baby Scottie Joy several weeks ago and fell in love.  She took her home Aug. 10, from Westie & Scottie Rescue Houston.  “Both were pretty joyful,” reports WSRH! Joy is settling in with Jackie’s 8-year-old wheaten Scottie Quincy and 13-year-old Lab mix Meagan. Quincy was a rescue from North Texas Scottie Rescue.  We are betting puppy Joy is making Quincy and Meagan’s lives plenty joyful, too.


Baby Joy was pulled from a Houston area shelter this summer by one of Westie & Scottie Rescue Houston’s volunteers.  She was just a button of a pup, and she won hearts from the start. Just look at Joy’s smiles, and Jackie’s.


“Jackie and Joy came together because of our partnership with Texas Scottie Rescue Fund,” says Maggie Escriva, WSRH’s intake coordinator.  When you submit an application through Texas Scottie Rescue Fund, it is forwarded to the four Scottish Terrier Club of America-affiliated rescue programs in Texas. The perfect way to get the right dog for the right family!

andrewAndrew was found wandering in San Antonio with no collar or microchip. Clearly he had been someone’s pet. As often happens, a lost Scottie like Andrew finds its way to San Antonio Area Scottie and Westie Rescue. SAASWR helpers Katherine & Brian and their Rescue Scottie Wally fostered Andrew.  He came in as a ball of fur, but our TSRF and SAASWR founder Daphne Branzell worked her magic and carved a beautiful new Scottie out of wooly Andrew.   The vet guessed he was two to three years old. SAASWR neutered and microchipped Andrew, heartworm tested him (negative), vaccinated and cleaned his teeth. That done, he was ready to go
Margaret in San Antonio submitted her application June 8. It didn’t take long. She adopted Andrew July 14. Andrew now keeps company with Margaret’s nine-year-old Scottie girl. We bet he keeps that girl busy. The traits that “sold” Andrew”? SAASWR advertised him as a very happy Scottie who liked to run and play with toys and was always up for a walk. Oh, the excitement when he’d see his leash!   He got along well with the resident Scottie at his foster home.  He was housebroken for the most part. In other words, Andrew would be an easy dog to live with.

Toto before

Toto before

Toto is an adorable little guy that is some Scottie, some Schnauzer. He was turned into San Antonio Area Scottie & Westie Rescue by a family who found him wandering a neighborhood with no collar or microchip. Fliers they posted for two weeks did not locate the owner, so they turned to Scottie Rescue. Toto moved in with SAASWR’s Elke and her Westie for several weeks of expert fostering until he found his forever home. While in foster care, Toto was fine-tuned: neutered, microchipped, teeth cleaned and nails clipped.



Lucky Toto is home forever now with Deb in Elgin.  A veteran Schnauzer owner, Deb knew about Scottie Rescue through her friends TSRF volunteers Steve and Elaine Thompson. She applied to TSRF after losing three of her four rescue dogs to various medical conditions this year, and in short order Toto was hers!  Best wishes to Toto and his new older dog friend Daisy.


And what did everyone else miss out on? Toto is about five years old and combines the best qualities of several breeds. He weighs in at about 16 pounds, doesn’t shed and “talks” more than he barks.  Toto loves to play and go for well mannered walks. Toto gets along with other dogs, and seems OK with cats. It is plain that he seems to like everybody! He was an easy dog to place. Thank you Deb for being Toto’s new person.
