Westie Rescue also has permanent rescues, you can find them here


We have a new little rescue coming in. He is a very active 11 year old boy who loves everybody and everything except cats. He has a wonderful disposition and very gentle. He has been in good health but does have allergies that are currently controlled with diet and medication (injection every 5 weeks). He recently has had a cruciate repair to his back leg but healing is progressing nicely and he will be as good as new in a few weeks. Unfortunately his Dad, who has been working from home, is having to move cities for his job and will have to be doing a lot of travelling. As much as he hates to give up his little companion, he feels that it is in the best interests of his Westie to find him a new home. We would like to find a home where someone is home all or most of the time as that is what the dog is used to. Also ideally the new home will be near enough to Vancouver that visits can still be made to the Dermatologist for bi-yearly check-ups. If you are interested in taking on this having this wonderful boy join your family, please go to our How To Adopt page and complete an application form

Robbie.This little fellow was picked up as a stray. Thought to be about 3.  He is a sweet little fellow with no major issues, possibly may have skin problems but we have no history on him.

Maddie (2)

Maddie . This 10 year old lovely Westie was turned into rescue because her Westie companion passed away. Her Mum, who now has to work long hours feels that it is not fair to leave her on her own and wishes to find her a home where she will have someone with her most of the time.

Maggie Mae. This 9 year old Westie is a real determined little girl and has been thru a lot in her life. Originally rescued from a puppy mill, her first rescuer eventually had to go into a care home and so Maggie moved on to her next home. This next owner unfortunately needed to go into palliative care so Maggie has now come into rescue. She is very friendly but a very stubborn little miss - typical Westie personality!

Holmes (2)

Holmes. This 7 year old male Westie is in need of a home by himself.  He is a happy go lucky guy but he doesn’t like to share his home with another dog.

Maximus. This 3 year old little male Westie was turned into rescue because he snapped at the youngest child in the home. Circumstances are unknown.. Otherwise he seems like an active little guy who loves life.


Maggie .This 9 year old little lady has been turned into rescue because her elderly parents have moved into a Seniors facility and they cannot take her with them. She is diabetic and has the very start of some sight issues. A very sweet, affectionate little girl.

Lucy. This 3 year old female was turned into rescue because she would not get along with the other Westie in the home. She is a very sweet, active little girl who does have some allergy issues.
