Available Dogs  The ideal forever home is one where the Westie is treated as a valued and beloved family member. Some of them have come from a life of neglect or abuse; they deserve the best life possible provided by people willing to put the time and effort into their care and love them unconditionally.

Max and Finn (Bonded Pair)

8 years old

Max and Finn are a bonded pair of westie boys that just turned 8.
The boys made their way to us from TN to join our WRNE family. They
are looking for a home together.

Their mom is battling some very serious health issues and has chosen
to put the safety and well being of her beloved boys first. Max is newly diagnosed diabetic needing insulin twice a day. Both boys have health insurance that is transferable to the new family.

They are truly a special pair and deserve all the love and care that every Westie deserves.

We've been Adopted!!!


Hello everyone, Sparky here. I'm feeling really safe here, getting a lot of love, attention, affection, play time, & walks. Think I'm really going to like it here. I'm learning how to play with toys, that it's ok not to bark at everything, & that I'm in a trusting, living environment. I've even been brushed some. Each day is a step forward & a learning experience, but my Westie brother Cody-James & his parents (Sharon & Jim) have a lot of patience with me.


aka "Monty"


These days you will find Monty being the king of his big yard. Monty's new space is securely fenced and he just loves his time outside.


His new family are kind, wonderful, patient, giving people, just want Monty needs. Thank you B & B, we are forever grateful to you for loving Monty and giving him a new beginning.


Congrats to our little Bichon buddy, Brady! Enjoy your furever home!
