Hi, I am still here at the Rescue.
I was in a terrible state when I arrived my coat was so badly matted that I didn’t look like a West Highland Terrier and my skin was sore.
I have had a hair cut and treatment from my Doctor and now I look like a different dog.
My hair is growing back and my skin is loads better.
I don’t mind children but like them better when they are above 9 years old.
I love small furry creatures but only to chase them so I guess I had better limit myself to a home without a cat or small furries.

Winston is a lovely fella , but all terrier , such a cheecky fella.
He travels well in the car, is clean indoors, sleeps either in his crate or in the kitchen. He is not good with small furries.
But meets and greats the dogs we meet each on our walks.
His undercoat is begining to grow back.
He is a good watch dog often hearing people at the door before my girls do.

It is recommended that Winston does not go with small furries or children under 7,
he has improved with the cats that he is being fostered with but its still work in progress

Hi
Just an update on the lovely Winston, he has settled in very well, learning to sit and wait for his food, eating alongside my girls too without panicking that they will eat his.
His skin looks better every day and I am sure his undercoat is starting to come through.
He is a lovely fella who loves his walks, travels well in the car.
Is a fantastic little watch dog, not barking all the time only when needed.
Sleeps all night either in his crate or in the kitchen without a peep.

Hi
As promised the photos of this lovely fella after he had been to see Sarah for a make over, boy did he need it.
Despite this he was a sweetie standing while he was brushed and trimmed so he can look his best for a new forever home.
He is a real terrier ,despite the fact he is only little he has a big attitude loves his food and enjoying investigating all the new sights and smells.
He is clean at home, sleeps in his crate, good in the car and walks well on a lead.

Hi
Just an update on the little Westie, he is a sweet little man in need of a lot of tlc.
He has no undercoat on his body or on a lot of his face.
The matts on his body , tail and head I have cut off.
He has had a bath so he is a lot less fragrant, this was not something he enjoyed but was good anyway.
He walks well on the lead and has met quite a few dogs without a problem.
He travels well in the car. But is not good at all with the cats , chickens , rabbits and guinea pigs .
He is going to cute paws to have a hair cut so will send you some photos after.

I lost my westie Polo about 3 months ago, and miss him greatly. Polo had skin trouble but we found that a a speacial diet and coal tar shampoo really did the trick.
We rescued a 5 yr old chocalte lab x from the RSPCA 4 weeks ago and looking to rescue anther smaller dog after the new year. Polo lived with our retriever for 10 yrs and they were great companions. If Winston has not found a loving home in the new year, I would be very interested in meeting him with our new dog Charlie.
