Daisy at nine and Charlie at six were owner turn-ins from the same home, though they are not related. The owner felt with family and work demands she could not give them enough attention, so she did the right thing and contacted Sunshine State Westie Rescue (SSWR).
Charlie has been vetted by SSWR’s vet, is neutered, and has no health issues. He loves running in the yard chasing squirrels and lizards and particularly loves playing ball. He is very sweet and loves everyone including other dogs. He has a bit of a delicate tummy so changing his food would have to be done slowly.
Daisy has a mild case of cataracts. The rescue took her to a specialty vet who determined that, while she needs daily eye drops, she does not need surgery. The eye drops cost about $30 per month. Daisy has been spayed and, like Charlie, is up to date on vaccinations.
Daisy is a bit more laid back and doesn’t play as much as Charlie but is also very sweet natured. She has dreams of being an alpha but gets along well with other dogs and has settled into the pack at her foster home. At first, she stuck close to her foster mom, but she has come out of her shell and has become more active. Like Charlie, she enjoys playing and chasing with the other dogs.
Both of these Westies have been together a number of years, are a bonded pair, and SSWR requires that they be placed together.
Daisy and Charlie walk well on a leash but would like a fenced in yard to run and play. Both also get along with other dogs so they could be adopted where there is already a dog in residence. It is not known how they behave with cats or young children. However, young children often don’t mix well with terriers.
Daisy and Charlie need a forever home with a couple, single person, or a family who has time to give them attention with walks, play time, and cuddles. A retired person, someone who works at home, or someone who has a little part time job would be ideal for this pair.
