Shay the Scottie with WSRH

Shay the Scottie

Shay in Houston needs a home. This Scottie has her eye on you! Her folks are being transferred overseas and can’t take her so Westie & Scottie Rescue Houston took over. Shay is 8 1/2 years old. She likes cats, but isn’t too fond of other dogs. She would be best in an all adult home. If you would like to be considered to adopt Shay, please fill out an application at .

“It is a good thing Shay came to WSRH because she needlessly has been suffering from ‘skin allergies’ all her life,” says WSRH’s Maggie Escriva. “Unfortunately, her people did not know that her bad skin was caused by a diet of low quality food and so they tried to treat it as an allergy and gave her medications rather than changing her diet. Shay is now on a good quality, grain free food, and her foster mom is giving her regular anti-fungal baths. In a few weeks, Shay will have her teeth cleaned and then will be ready for her forever home.”

If your dog has skin issues and you would like some help, please send an email to westiehouston@gmail.comWSRH is expert at solving skin problems. Ask them for new ideas.

Khloe Is Now Minzy and She Found Her New Home!

We love happy tales… and tails! Lucky Minzy is now at home with Jude in Austin. The TSRF Facebook page featured four-year-old Westie Khloe in early January when West Texas Scottie Rescue was looking for a home for her. Jude applied using TSRF’s online application, and Voila, Jude was a great match. Jude’s 14-year-old Westie died last fall, and she really needed a Westie! Happy New Life to the New Minzy!

Khloe was a sweet four-year old female Westie, a smallish 16 pounder. West Texas Scottie Rescue in Midland took her in. She had lived her entire life outdoors, and didn’t have a clue about housebreaking. That is where Khloe needed help. Otherwise, she was near perfect. Before adoption, Khloe had been spayed, her vaccinations were current, she was heartworm and tick fever negative, and she had a HomeAgain microchip. She gets along well with other dogs and loves every person she meets. How much better could you get? Congratulations, Jude. (Before photos from WTSR)
