West Highland White Terrier Gains Popularity At Horse Barn

As you know, our horse barn is full of rescue dogs, so what is a purebred West Highland White Terrier doing there? Chloe, the terrier, was part of a back yard breeding program that left her abused, suffering from an extreme case of dog dermatitis. Dog dermatitis is a general term that refers to canine skin infections. The patient's skin looks patchy, flaky, and in extreme cases raw. It is a painful and smelly situation. Dog mange is a type of canine dermatitis, but not in Chloe's case. Chloe's salvation came when her forever home discovered some enzyme treatment they had shipped to them from Texas. Allow me to introduce you now to our Chloe!

Chloe was instantly embraced and accepted by all the other rescue dogs. She had to leave early and we were sad to see her go. Until we meet again, Chloe! That concludes yet another small dog rescue chapter from our horse barn.

Awwww...thanks for introducing us to your new furend! She is Most Adorable. And I'm very much glad she got over that icky skin condition. I had one of those when I was rescued and lemme tell you - it's not fun! I'm so happy she's found her Most Perfect Home That Ever Was.

Awwww, she's such a cutie pie!!

It really breaks our hearts and makes Mom's eyes all leaky when we hear about these poor dogs who suffered, butt on the other hand, it makes us really, really happy when we hear that they've found a good forever home, like Chloe!!

Her is very beautimous but of course, not as beautimous as Twinkletoes. It is a most beautiful thing when somebuddy takes a doggie or kitteh (gasp) into their hearts and home to love furever and evers...no matter what. Even despite their medical and emotional problems.

We are so glad that the little Westie is doing better... What do you mean, she had to leave early? Does that mean she found a good home? We hope so! The Country Corgis

Westies are adorable! I love how well the dogs all get along. Doesn't seem to bother them a bit when a new pack member shows up!
