WESTPORT, Conn. Calling all dog lovers: If you've been looking to add to your family, Westport Animal Shelter Advocates (WASA) has seven dogs waiting for their forever homes.
One of them is a 3-year-old husky named Katie. Katie was brought to Westport Animal Control after she was spotted running along Greens Farms Road. When she was picked up, one of her eyes was in danger of rupturing due to glaucoma. WASA recently paid for Katie to undergo surgery in which the infected eye was replaced with a prosthetic eye. Katie, described as sweet and affectionate, is housebroken and walks well on a leash.
Also waiting for a loving family is Emma. Emma was found by a Westport resident on Long Lots Road. It is believed that she was tossed out of a car into bushes due to puncture wounds and other cuts she has on both sides of her face and body. When she arrived at WASA, Emma was severely underweight, but she is steadily gaining weight. She also has a slight limp, but is recovering from that also. During her rehabilitation at Westport Animal Control, Emma will need ongoing veterinary care and evaluation.
Piccolino, a shih tzu approximately 1½ years old, is the newest pooch to arrive at WASA. Piccolino is described as an affectionate pup who appears to get along well with other dogs. He loves attention and understands basic commands.
Looking for a dog that's great with kids? Then meet Maxwellbelieved to be a Jack Russell-corgi mix. Maxwell is described as a friendly, cuddly and playful little guy who loves to go on walks and chase after tennis balls.
William, a 4-year-old shepherd mix, found himself homeless after his owner died. He was rescued from a state animal control facility and is being fostered by a WASA volunteer. William is neutered, up-to-date on his shots and described as a calm and gentle boy. He is housebroken, walks well on a leash and gets along great with other dogs. William is on daily medication for seizures.
A playful personality is what Middleton, a 6-month-old Staffie mix, is known for. She also likes to cuddle and is great with other dogs, especially those who are ready to play. Currently, Middleton is being fostered by a WASA volunteer. She is spayed, parasite free and up-to-date on her shots.
Last but not least is King, a 2-year-old Brussels-pug who's got a lot of love to give. King likes being held and lying in laps. He is alright with other dogs, so long as they aren't rough with him. He is up to date on vaccinations, neutered and parasite free.
