Dog Description

Hi, my name is Fergus! I am an approximately 7-year-old Westie boy, and I am taking applications for my forever home. Could you be my new pawrent?

I am good with cats and children | Household with other dogs preferred

Fergus is a neutered, approximately 7-year old male Westie. At 12 pounds, Fergus is a very happy, sociable dog who loves other dogs and cats. His favorite activity is snuggling in your lap! He also loves to chase balls in the yard. He especially loves dogs who look like him, but he gets along with any dog he meets. He would love to find a home with at least one other dog playmate.

Fergus likes to take long walks and is leash-trained. He likes almost every person he encounters. He has not shown a lot of interest in toys other than balls, but he really likes sleeping on the back of the sofa and chasing balls in the yard.

Fergus has a heart murmur that has been diagnosed as mild mitral valve regurgitation. He is not on any medications for this and may never need medications. He has no other medical problems or history of any issues or injuries that we know about. He has been well cared for at his foster home and was recently groomed. Fergus is up-to-date on all his vaccinations, including rabies, distemper, and kennel cough. He has no tickborne illnesses and is heartworm negative. NAWR expects all adopters will provide for Fergus’s medical and behavioral needs, including vaccinations as required by state law, for his entire lifetime.
