Every now and then we retire one of our adult dogs and try to find them a great forever home. If you are looking for an adult Westie who has had a kind and warm family life a retired adult would be perfect for you. Contact us for current information to find out when a retired adult dog will be available. I don’t keep this page updated as often as I should, please feel free to email for current status.
We had several moms retire who are 5 to 6 years old retiring in probably late 2016. We occasionally have young adults who we held for breeding and decide they aren’t exactly what we are looking for and adopt them out as pets.
(Adoption now pending on Chili) We do have a mom westie who will be spayed 1-6 week. She has bladder stones, which will be removed at that time too. We are going to switch dog foods as it seems to be causing a variety of problems in kidneys of the shar pei and this is second westie in 20 years who has had bladder stones when we had never had a problem before. We haven’t rotated foods in awhile. Chili was 4 years old in October. She will be available 5 days after surgery if she has no complications. She is doing wonderful now, we thought she had a bladder infection. It is probably what caused the stones.
Our retired moms are usually 6 years old and $650. they will be spayed, teeth cleaned if needed, and current on health care.
We probably wont have any other retired moms for a while. Although like Chili anything can happen that we would retire one early. Please email if you would like to be on the list for an updatee when an adult becomes available.
We do have a whole list of medium to large rescued dogs who were out of time at shelters just due to lack of space and time. Many sizes and breeds! We get them spayed/neutered and UTD on health care. Please check out the rescue dog page. True they aren’t Westies, but they are each very special and wonderful too!
All our adults are crate trained UTD on vaccinations and healthy. They all walk on a leash and stand great for grooming. Most are housebroken. Some have not been loose in the house very much but they never potty in a crate, and most automatically go to the door when they need out. Young adults are the same fee as a puppy. Middle age retired moms are less.
We also occasionally have older puppies available. They are crate trained, and have the benefit of being able to wait longer to potty for those families who work or are gone longer then a young puppy can wait. They also learn and remember quickly, since they are a little more mature. They easily move right into their new family the way a young puppy will. Please check on the available puppies page for them too.
Eddie pictured here is a doll. Mellow and good with the other dogs.
The old wives tale which states you must get a very young puppy for the puppy/dog to bond well with you is not true. Puppies and adults who have had a good home love their family and it is easy for them to love and bond with their new family, their names can also be changed and they adjust quickly to the new name, even old dogs. We do a lot of rescue so we don’t know if the dog has even had a name or what it is. They still adjust beautifully! True some who have not had a good past life or simply no training may be a bit of a handful at first. Dogs are wonderful mans best friend and much more adaptable then most people could ever hope to be.
I retire all our mom dogs after several years of breeding. It works great for me, for our retired moms and their new families. They are healthy, housebroken, crate trained, and come when called already. They will take some adjusting into a new home but they are so easy many families keep in touch for a long time letting me know what a great Westie they are and how happy they are to have one of mine. They are wonderful for the person or family who wants a companion, without all the time and energy a puppy requires.
