Whistler is a 3.5 year old, West Highland Terrier (Westie). He is a sweet boy, that loves to play fetch and receive attention. Whistler has some anxiety issues and can find younger kids a bit overwhelming. He would love to find a calm house, potentially with another canine companion, so he is not alone when his family is not home. Whistler is a smart boy, that is ready to learn. He does know sit, down and is potty trained (but can have accidents if someone doesn’t see his subtle cue that he needs to go). Whistler would need to do a meet and greet with any dog(s) in the home prior to adoption.

We focus on finding the best match for adoptable animals and are not first-come first-served.

If you are interested in learning more about and meeting any adoptable pet, please come in to the shelter during our open adoption hours Wednesday – Saturday 11am to 6pm.

We are located at:

If you have another dog in the home, we require you, your family members, and your existing dog(s) to come and meet the dog at the shelter.
