Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Please read dog's entire written bio before contacting rescue. To inquire about this dog, you do not need to press any special buttons on this website. Send a regular e-mail to Janet Cook at: Please provide some information about your home, family and other pets. Angel's Heart Dog Rescue is a private, foster home based rescue. Though there are some steps that precede meeting a dog, they are quick and expeditious. Thank you! SEE VIDEO ALSO ON THIS PAGE! Sidney is a two to three-year-old male Terrier/Schnauzer mix who was rescued from the Devore Animal Shelter. He is mostly cream colored, with some ... (Read More)tan markings throughout his coat. He is a low shedding dog, and he may even be hypoallergenic. His coat does not require professional grooming; he is wash and wear, with maybe a little bit of brushing now and then. Though he has the appearance of being a wire-haired terrier, his coat is actually quite soft. Being 16 lbs. he is a GREAT size; he is technically a small dog, but with a medium-sized dog feel. Sidney is a very sweet and loving, good-natured dog that loves to hang with his people. He is a bit of a Velcro dog, but is also a good balance between going off to explore and play, and chilling next to you on a pet bed. He enjoys various toys, and very much enjoys playing with other dogs, especially chase, ball throwing, and tug-of-war. He has been exposed to multiple dogs, big and small, and does well. He is crate-trained (at the rescue, dogs are crated to eat, sleep, and if I have to leave for a bit) and though he was a bit whiny at first, he has learned that it is just part of the program, and now does very well. Sidney rides well in the car and is not destructive in the house, though he does have some traits that are inherent to terriers. Sidney is responsive to instruction and redirection (he seeks to please his person) but could benefit from a basic training class to learn basic commands and to help him focus. He is potty-trained; (however potty reinforcement and observation is always good in any new environment). Sidney is a dog that would become bored if he were asked to be a lazy dog that mainly lies around the house all day. He gets a lot of his needs met by playing with the other dogs here at the rescue. If there was no other dog in the home for Sidney to play with, he would need more in the line of structured activities. We have not tested Sidney around young children but it seems as if he would be great with kids, providing that they are gentle and respectful of the dog. We are in the process of cat testing him, but it is still too soon to tell if a home with cats could be his permanent placement. If he were to be placed in a home that has cats, the cats would need to be the type that are unaffected by the presence of a dog in the home. Sidney has a very slight issue with separation, but we notice that as he gets more secure in a new place, he adjusts quickly and a crate can be used in the transitional phase. He is learning to play fetch! He is also learning to walk nicely on a leash. The home we seek for Sidney is a home with another welcoming dog who will be his buddy and playmate, as well as people who are not collectively gone for long, extended hours on a daily basis. We may consider a home where he is the only dog depending on the circumstances. A yard is a plus; however, I am willing to forgo the yard, if there is another dog is the home that will engage playing with Sidney. Sidney is neutered, fully vaccinated (including rabies), Front-lined, dewormed, and micro-chipped. If you are interested in Sidney, please contact Angel's Heart Dog Rescue at: The phone number to the rescue is: 626-340-9316. There is no need to phone the rescue until you have first submitted an interest via e-mail. Please visit my website at: and go to the Adoption Tab to read about the adoption process and fees; thank you! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Westie in California
    Westie Dogs can make good pets in California if they match your IifestyIe. The West Highland White Terrier, or Westie, is a spirited little white dog. Westies are very sociable, good with children, and can be socialized to get along with other pets. Male Westies may not get along well with other males, and Westies may chase cats. This breed can live in an apartment if it gets enough exercise.

Rescue Me! - HeIpingAnimaIs in Need.
lnteresting Westie Trivia Low-Cost California Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Westies are simply Cairns bred for their white coats. Westies come from Argyll, Scotland. Westies are excellent ratters. The white coat of a Westie helps hunters tell the difference between the dogs and their quarry. Westies originated through an accident of genetics when a Cairn delivered white puppies in its litter.
