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 email for current status.
We will have several moms retire who are 5 to 6 years old available in 2015. 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. Sorry we don’t have any older Westies currently available.
We do have a whole list of 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! 4 are scruffy terrier mixes and 3 of the 4 have a personality just like a Westie! (one is very shy of strangers.)
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.
We have several rescues available. Many are wonderful and very easy, housebroken, love kids and great with dogs. 4 were from a rural area and must have been abused. They are SO frightened of small children and scared when meeting new people. Once they know you they are just as sweet as pie. Hammy and Hendrix pictured above are also super easy, as are many of them!
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.
