Gwen came into rescue because her owner had died and the family were unable to take care of her. She was extremely stressed after losing her owner and was “nippy” towards people. She is 10 years young, and we believe had lived with her owner all her life, so it was understandable about the stress and nipping. She was collected from Wales and went into foster with Gary, Lynn and family, including their westie Orion, however whilst she was a loving little lady towards people she wasn’t towards poor Orion (who loves everyone). It became apparent that Gwen does not like other dogs, so she is now in foster with Lorraine and John in Hornchurch, where considering all that she has been through recently she has settled well and quickly. Lorraine says that even though Gwen is of mature years, she is a spritely girl, fully house trained, very inquisitive, eats and sleeps well, loves going out walking and traveling in the car. She loves cuddles and lots of fuss, and when really happy and contented will lie down for tummy rubs.
Gwen will “attach” herself to you and can then become a little possessive of you, but takes notice when told no firmly. She will also growl and try to nip still if she doesn’t get her own way and again takes notice if told no firmly. But overall she is the cutest, sweet natured little girl who would make a great companion for the right person. She needs a home where she is the only dog and owner must be “westie wise”.
Gwen is now in foster in Maidstone, Kent. If you have any interest in Gwen, please make sure you have sent in an application form and if you would like to contact Mo for a chat then please phone her on
