Westies in Need (WiN) works very hard to match our wonderful dogs with equally wonderful new families. Here are some of our success stories!
One of our little rescues was named Lilly - she was the worst case of skin problems we had ever seen when she arrived into our rescue program. The Pet Network saw her info on our website and asked if they could do a story on our Lilly and our rescue. Click here to watch the video of Lilly and her journey...they did a great job and we can't thank the Pet Network enough for supporting us! Lilly says THANKS too!
Po is a little Westie/mix (poodle we think) that has come to us as an owner surrender. She was very matted unfortunately so our groomer was only able to shave her down...but no worries, Westie hair grows back!!! As you can see she has some staining around her mouth and her eyes from eating a very poor quality food (Caesar dog food ) but all that will clear quickly when she is on a proper food!!!
This is such a lovely girl, so kind and loving...she needs a quiet home where she will be the center of attention!!!
An update...Po has been adopted!!! This kind girl has found her home!
Lucie is an adorable, petite Westie mix who was found wandering the streets and sadly, no one came to claim her..
She is fostering in Quebec and will be seen by our vet this afternoon.
Don't worry lil' munchkin ... we're going to find you a wonderful new home where you will have the life of a Princess!!
An update...Lucie has been adopted!!!
Bella and Barkley are a wonderful bonded pair of Westies, who are as cute as can be!!!
Barkley (on the right) is 5 yrs old and needs to be neutered (sorry Barkley...but the "boys" have to go!!!!) and Bella (on the left) is only 3 years old. These little ones must be adopted together!!!!
An update...Bella and Barkley have been adopted!!! They are staying together forever!!
Wesley is just 8 years old and is an owner surrender. Our love and our thanks to his family for calling us and allowing us to help and find him a new home.

Hailey is a little girl who has come to us all the way from Taiwan (along with her brother Harry that you see below). Hailey was found wandering the streets with her brother and was taken into a shelter in Taipei.

Just look at that face!!!
An update...Hailey has been adopted!!! She is such a lucky girl to have found her new family!

Maggie and Molly... are owner surrenders and are, as you can all see, about as cute as 2 Westies can be! They must be adopted together as they are very bonded and we will make sure that happens.
Welcome girls to Westies in Need!
An update...Maggie and Mollie have been adopted. These 2 girls are having the very best time at their new and "fur"ever home!
Princess is a cute as a button Westie mix (we are thinking poodle????) and is only 4 1/2 years old and partially blind in one eye. Our love and our thanks to her family for trusting in Westies in Need to find her a wonderful new home!
An update...Princess has been adopted! This darling girl has joined a wonderful new and "fur"ever family
Maggie... is 7 years old and is an owner surrender (along with her brother that you see above) She is a sweet and darling girl who has a bit of skin issues, but that does not bother us!!!! We know skin and will have her looking great in a short time...we promise!!!
An update...Maggie has been adopted!!!!
Blanco is an 11 yr old male who’s owner was very sick with cancer and she had no family to take him. She surrendered him to a shelter who called us right away and our wonderful volunteers have picked him up and are fostering him. Blanco is off to our vet today for a physical exam and will be available for adoption very soon. He is being fostered in Quebec.
An update...Blanco has been adopted!!!

An update...Fergus has been adopted!!!!
Chloe...is a such a tiny little thing...only about 6 years old and she really needed us! Chloe was suffering with bladder stones and needed medical help ASAP!!! She came through her spay, a bit of dental work and the bladder surgery with flying colours and is now resting at her foster home!
Welcome Chloe to Westies in Need.
An update...Chloe has found her forever home...she even got a new Westie brother as well, named Floyd!!!
Tyson...is an 11 week old puppy that has come into rescue. Our love and thanks to his family for allowing us to find him a new home. Because Tyson is too little right now to be neutered, his adorable little boy will go out on a very strict foster to adopt neuter agreement!!!
An update...Tyson has found his forever home!!!! He even gets a new sister named Lacey to play with.
Mia is a 6 yr old owner surrender who came into rescue today and is being fostered in Quebec. Mia was stressed with youngsters in her family and needs a wonderful new home with patience, terrier experience and no children.
Not to worry Mia, we will find you a wonderful new home!!!!!

Old Blue Eyes...
OK...this one is not really a WiN Westie
... but when we found this old picture of Frank Sinatra with a sweet little Westie, we just knew we had to put it on our website, somewhere!!!
Can you blame us???
