Fritz - posted 06/20/2013

From Kathie of Phillipston, MA

We had 2 Westies but lost the older one a couple of years ago to cancer. We were finally mentally ready to add to our family and give our remaining senior Westie a pal. We were going to buy from a breeder but I started to look on Petfinder and found both a Cairn and a Westie from Northern New England Westie Rescue. I exchanged many emails about both and Penny from NNEWR was wonderful. She suggested a 5 yr old Westie male named Fritz. In the 2 months we've had Fritz he has been an endless delight. Sure there were a couple of issues but nothing that couldn't be overcome with a little patience and understanding. Blizzard, our senior Westie, has pretty much adopted him as a little brother and he is very careful and considerate of her - he was a part of the family from Day 1. We are so glad that we made the decision to adopt otherwise we would have missed out on all the fun, love and joy that Fritz brings to all of us.
