Westie Rescue Indiana placed 52 dogs in 2006 and 44 in 2007. Most were owner surrenders -- great dogs who unfortunately found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.
In some cases, life changes such as illness, death or divorce disrupted what had been a happy home. In others, the Westie may have developed health or behavior issues with which the family could not cope. Some Westies made their way to rescue from puppy mills where they were no longer capable of producing litter after litter of puppies, or where they had no chance of sale to pet stores. Others came from shelters -- some were strays, others were "dumped" by uncaring families whose hearts no longer had room for these little white dogs with the great big attitudes.
Regardless of how they came to us, each one found their forever home with someone who was prepared to give these little ones a lifetime of love and care.
