Snowy White - Westie (Notts) Snowy1_oc

Snowy is a West Highland Terrier who has lived with the same owner all his life. He’s 13 years old and is now in the care of an Oldies Club foster home in Nottingham. His foster family describe him as affectionate, playful, intelligent and happy. It took him about a week to settle in, but he seems to be growing in confidence every day.

Snowy doesn’t mind being left alone for a few hours at a time and he’s house-trained, but needs a steady routine in his life. He seems to be okay around other dogs and could probably live with another doggie friend in his new home.

There’s a possibility that Snowy could live with cats too, but as he does sometimes get curious and chase, he’ll need further training and a proper introduction. If you have cats and you’re considering adopting Snowy, perhaps you’d like to read our article on Dogs and Cats.

Snowy is happy around children, but he has been known to snap in the past when he was startled, so he’d be better in an adult-only home or one with older, sensible children.

Snowy is good on the lead, but he doesn’t have very good recall so is having some further training for this. He’s a good boy in the car though and is quite happy being chauffeured around.

One of Snowy’s favourite pastimes is sitting on a comfy lap and being stroked, so if you’re looking for a lapdog, Snowy might be just the dog for you! He likes his squeaky toys too or having a good old chew on a rawhide bone, as you can see from one of his photos!

Snowy isn’t keen on being picked up, but he will tolerate it. He’s also had a bad experience at the vets in the past, so doesn’t enjoy vet visits.

Snowy hasn’t been neutered and the vet believes he’s too old for this now, but he will be fully vaccinated, microchipped and flea and worm treated before he is rehomed.

As is common with Westies, Snowy has a skin infection and has lost some hair from his chest and legs. He needs regular baths with prescription shampoo, but the vet believes his hair will grow back in time.

If you’d like to enquire about Snowy, please refer to our Adoption Procedures for information about the adoption process. You can then contact an Oldies Club rehoming co-ordinator as follows:

Email: rehome@oldies.org.uk
Telephone: 0844 586 8656

Snowy can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, subject to a satisfactory home visit, but note that you will be required to travel to the foster home to meet him.

It was supposed to be Snowys adoption visit today but the potential adopters didnt bother showing up angry1

When phoned they said they had changed their minds and wanted a younger dog. They didnt obviously think that they should actually call us to let us know this information.

Snowy is now available for rehoming again.
