Westies Available for Adoption

Please familiarize yourself with the Westie breed to be certain these terriers are a good match for your family. Westies have a very strong prey-drive and must be kept on leash or in a fenced area to be safe. Adopters should understand that our Westies will need an adjustment period to settle into their new home.

 

GLWR, Inc. requires a completed application (available by clicking the "APPLY NOW"  button on each Westie), personal references, a vet reference, and a home visit. GLWR is an all-volunteer 501(C)3 non-profit corporation, an adoption donation of $300.00 helps support our rescue program. Be sure to visit us on Facebook!

 

If you would like more information on our Westies, please contact GLWR at westierescue@mchsi.com.

Grier

Male, Neutered

Fenced Yard Required

Meet Grier!  Retired from a commercial breeding facility, we believe Grier to be about 6 or 7 years of age.  He is a shy boy but gaining in confidence.  He loves toys and is doing great walking on leash.  He keeps his crate immaculately clean and is well on his way to being house trained.  He will need continued support and training in his new home.  Due to his shyness Grier can be a "runner".  A fenced in yard will give him safety while he explores and gains confidence in his new world.  Grier is neutered and current on all shots and ready to move to his new forever home. 

Franklin

Male, Neutered

Fenced Yard Required

GLWR would like to introduce Franklin! Not much is known about Frankie's past, he was tossed over a shelter fence at night. Suffering from severe ear infections he just wasn't feeling well, but now things are better. Our vet tells us Frankie is about 7 to 8 years of age, and he is now current on neutering and shots. Frankie is a big boy, quiet, and might have some hearing loss from the severe ear infections. He is a real sweetie and is now looking for a forever home, someone who will love him for the special guy he is!!

Hazel - A Norwich Terrier

Female, Spayed

Fenced Yard Required

When asked to help two little breeding female terriers find their way to new homes, GLWR said "Yes!" So now we have two of the most darling little Norwich Terriers looking for their forever homes. GLWR welcomes Ginger and Hazel to rescue and will be helping them find great furever homes.

 

Hazel is about eight years old and is about 12 pounds. Hazel will be staying with us for a bit longer since she is heartworm positive and will be undergoing treatment before looking for her new home.

Eve

Female, Spayed

Fenced Yard Required

GLWR welcomes Eve! Arriving just in time for Christmas Eve we have made room at the inn. The pick up person just could not leave her behind, and we are glad they didn't!! Eve is brown, that will all change with her bath as the squalor of the mill washes away and see will become the lovely white Westie that we know she is. She will be seeing our vet shortly and making arrangements for spaying and updating on shots. Eve is two years old and will be looking for her new furever home shortly after the New Year begins.

Babbs

Female, Spayed

Fenced Yard Required

Babbs is spayed and had a bladder stone removed as well as several mammary tumors. Her surgery incision is healing well. Our veterinarians believe she is around 8-9 years old.  Babbs is ready to look for a nice quiet furever home to call her own. She is learning to walk on leash and loves toys, is friendly and loves to beg for treats.  If you are looking for a cute little girl to keep you company ask about Babbs at westierescue@mchsi. com.

Adoption Process

Our adoption process begins with completing an application. We receive many applications but may not have a Westie that is a suitable match for your home at that time.  All applications are kept on file and applicants are contacted as soon as a Westie is matched to your profile.  A short phone conversation begins the matching process that insures our Westie will be successful in their new home. GLWR asks to speak with two personal references and with your veterinarian. One of our volunteers will visit your home to discuss what characteristics in a Westie you feel will be best suited to your home and lifestyle. A "meet and greet" between all family members and current pets will help determine if the prospective Westie is a good match for your family. A good match indicates a successful adoption is likely. Our online application may be completed below or you can email us for a file copy to print and mail back to us.
