Stanley
Stanley has steam rolled into
Rescue and into our hearts.
He is an exuberant and full of
life Welsh Terrier who is just
2 years old. He is a handsome
boy who just wants attention,
to sit on you – and that could
be anywhere on you - and be
loved. A best friend and confidant is what he is about and loves to go out for long car rides looking out the window. He does fairly well on a leash and is well behaved out and about. Stanley was an owner surrender, purchased from a breeder by a young owner who worked over 10 hours each day and had little to no time to spend with a dog. Stanley loves the outdoors and a big fenced yard and when he is out he is nose to ground and on the trail of a trespasser. He is a solid 27 pounds of muscle and a strong fellow. Not a barker unless he wants something from you or to be recognized. Stanley is nutty for playing fetch, bringing it back so it can be tossed once again. Sometimes he flips it in the air and plays with himself! He loves to test out each and every toy and carries one around in his mouth at most times. He does fine out and about with other dogs, better with female dogs and is not aggressive but he is also not a toy sharer or of his human’s lap. Stanley would do best as an only dog with someone who has time to give to a wonderful Welshie. Stanley has some quirks like all terriers and is not fond of having his toe nails trimmed and not one who likes to be moved or disturbed while sleeping. A home without small children would also be in order. He is young, healthy, house trained and so ready for being rewarded with that perfect home and life.
A friendly boy arrived at WFTRM and has a name you will not forget. Shoeshine was relinquished to a Shelter by his owner who was moving to a nursing facility and could not longer keep him. He was well loved and cared for and is a happy healthy Wire Fox boy who is 9 years old. It is very sad to see them displaced but comforting when we can get in touch with their owner to let them know they are with us and will be loved and a wonderful new home will be in their future. Shoeshine was a bit anxious on arrival and probably not sure of what is happening. He is charming and funny and full of life. A very good boy who is well behaved, house trained and just a delight to have around. Updated bio on Shoeshine will be forthcoming as he is heading to the vet and letting him settle in.

Every morning is good for Micah. He is a loyal Wire Fox boy who is very friendly, quiet and well trained. All around A+ for Manners in the home, in the car, on the leash and with all he meets. Twenty Two pounds from Texas and a Toy Thief and Wrangler. He was living with his elderly owner and they were best buddies. His owner was very ill and was so upset that he had to move to a nursing home without his companion. This was so important to this gentleman that he had made provisions in his trust for the care of Micah. It is not an easy task to think about but an important one as we care so deeply for our animals and want them to be safe, loved and provided for after we are gone.

WFTRM welcomed Micah as we do everyone in need and his journey began. Thanks to Julie Covey for arranging Micah's move, Pilots n Paws faithful pilot Mike picked up MIcah and they were off to Oklahoma City to meet Katherine. Micah met some new pals already - another recent rescue boy and WFT pup Zoey Grace. His favorite toy is a stuffed orange hippo and he carries that around so proud.

Sadly after the relinquish and Micah's move took place, his owner must have felt at peace knowing that WFTRM would take good care as he did of his beloved boy, and passed away. This coming July, Micah will turn eleven and his owner will be watching him from heaven.

On Tuesday, February 2nd Micah went to a neurologist to have and MRI and Spinal Tap performed. It was noticed there was a weakening of his back legs and unsure of the cause. There was very limited vet history on Micah turned over to WFTRM. There was nothing significant from the MRI and the Spinal fluid was not inflamed. The testing leans towards Degenerative Myelopathy. The confusing aspect is that Micah appears to respond quite well on anti-inflammatory and pain medication. He is getting his exercise which he loves and also starting some range of motion therapy exercises with him to start.
