Godspeed Little Winston

Winston was a senior Scottie who, like many before him, came to rescue with a sad story.  His long time owner took him into assisted living with her but advancing dementia robbed her of her ability to care for him.  Facing possible medical issues of his own, Winston was surrendered to STRNW.
 
Once in our care, Winston was examined by the staff at South Hill Veterinary Hospital in Puyallup, Washington.  They detected a mass next to his spleen and surgically removed it.  It was a benign cyst but they discovered that his liver contained inoperable cancerous lesions.
 
Winston's condition precluded him from being put up for adoption so he was placed in permanent foster care with two of our members and their three Scotties.  Even though he was hard of hearing and couldn't see much out of his left eye, he happily joined the pack and got about the business of being a Scottie.
 
Winston thrived with his foster family.  He guarded his chew toys, zestfully joined the rub and tickle sessions and was at the front of the line when treats were handed out.  For six months, Winston had the best possible life a Scottie could have; but cancer is a remorseless disease and it finally attacked his small body.  Winston left us on April 29, 2009, cradled in his foster Mom's arms.  We are all heartbroken at his passing but we are also grateful for the time we shared with him and the joy and trust he favored us with.
 
In his memory we have established Winston's Angel Fund to help other Scotties who come into our care.  If you would like to become one of Winnie's Angels you can click here to find out how.

Oliver

Little Oliver found a a new family. He's responded well to treatment for his bad skin condition and his fur is growing back nicely

 

 

Doc and Mac

Doc and Mac are 6 and 3 year old Scotties who've been brothers since Mac was a puppy.  They are very attached to each other and are happy, playful boys who get along with dogs and people alike and have the sunniest dispositions.  They're neutered, have their shots up to date and are microchipped.

We're trying to fulfill the owners request to have these guys placed together.  She dearly loves them but she was diagnosed with a catastrophic illness some time ago.  Recently her prognosis became very grim and she was forced to surrender them in the hope that they will find a new and loving forever home.  For all their sakes we are going to do our very best to see that this happens.

If you are interested in adopting Doc & Mac and live in the Northwest, please submit our online application.

Mackie and Bracken

Mackie and Bracken are another pair of Scotties that came into rescue because of tragic circumstances.  They are brother & sister who will be 8 years old in Dec.  The owner and her husband acquired Mackie as a pup and her father-in-law got Bracken at the same time.  Although they were family members, they lived in separate households.  Sadly, the owners husband and father-in-law both passed away this year leaving her unable to care for both dogs.

Mackie is a big boy and could lose a couple.  He's a real people cuddler and likes all the dogs he's met in his foster home and at the dog park.  He gets tired quicker than his sister and likes to sit and watch all the goings on with his foster mom.  He's neutered, his shots are up to date and he's microchipped.

Bracken is smaller than her brother and more energetic.  She wants to run and play with every dog she meets and can be a little bossy.  In so many ways she a typical Scottie girl.  Her foster mom says that both she and Mackie are very well behaved and extremely sweet.  She also echoed what we've all said from time to time, "If I didn't already have my limit, these kids would be staying here."
