Turn Key Dog

by Lee Juslin

Captain Jack is an older Westie, but this fifteen-year-old has a lot of life left. He is a happy boy whose smile and wagging tail light up a room. When he came to Caryl to be fostered, he adapted immediately. He walked right in with his tail wagging, and that well-known Westie smile on his adorable face. The captain came from a military family, and when a new baby with special needs was expected, they decided they couldn’t handle him anymore. Caryl suspects they didn’t want to be bothered and didn’t want to spend the money on him.

Louis is a Westie/Terrier mix surrendered to Westie & Scottie Rescue of Houston by an owner who was no longer able to care for him. He had thin hair and scaly, red spots on his skin when he arrived at the rescue. Linda, his foster mom, gave him a medicated bath immediately and then took him to the vet. The vet diagnosed him with dry eye and ear problems. Louis was put on antibiotics and eye drops.
