Holly's Info...

I am a special needs pet, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Holly's Story...
Holly is a 6 lb. bundle of fur and cuteness who found dumped in a parking lot. She was likely dumped because she has a condition called megaesophagus. It causes her to regurgitate her food unless fed in an upright position. So, she needs a family who can spend a little extra time helping her eat and will be patient if she cannot keep it down. Despite this minor flaw, Holly has the happiest personality and loves to play with kids, dogs, cats and even likes the guinea pig in her foster home!

Holly is estimated to be 7 months old and is thought to be part Maltese and possibly Westie. She has an appointment to be spayed soon and then will be ready to officially be adopted. She is a total joy to have! Loves to give kisses and snuggle in your lap! Are you looking for a sweet girl like Holly? If so, please fill out an adoption application on our website at forgottendogs.org/adopt/application - Thank you!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Holly, a Houston Westie, West Highland White Terrier/Maltese puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Westie, West Highland White Terrier/Maltese for sale in Houston, or seeking a Westie, West Highland White Terrier/Maltese puppy from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Westie, West Highland White Terrier/Maltese breeders who help with Westie, West Highland White Terrier/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
