Facts About Me





My Story

Handsome Westley is a sleek 3 1/2 year old 55 lb Coonhound/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix who is so eager to please he’ll do his whole repertoire of tricks before you even have the treat ready! This droopy-eared chatty charmer thrives on structure and affection, and is devoted to the people who provide it. Smart and silly Westley LOVES his toys, and when he’s not playing outside he can be found lounging on his bed with a tennis ball or a bone in his mouth. He’s got the hang of the first part of the “fetch” game…he’s still working on the bringing it back part because he just has so much fun running around after the ball. Westley loves to chase, and due to his innate prey drive he should not be in a home with cats or other small critters.

Snuggling is one of his favorite things, but this fit fellow is no couch potato. Coonhounds and Ridgebacks benefit from mental and physical activity in order to be happy, and Westley is no exception. He loves hiking where there are plenty of new and exciting smells, and dreams of finding an active forever home who will engage with him and continue to teach him and take him on new adventures…followed by excellent happy snoozes at the feet of his humans.

Thank you so much for your interest in adopting a dog from A New Chance Animal Rescue (www.anewchancear.org). We are a 501c3, tax deductible, organization. We are an all volunteer group, so after submitting your application, if you don’t hear back from us within a few days, please e-mail us at adoption@anewchancear.org. Be sure to read about the adoption process (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-process/) on our website, so you’ll know what to expect and fill out all fields on the adoption application (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-application/) or we won’t be able to process it. We are a foster-based rescue and do NOT have a shelter or boarding facility. AN APPLICATION MUST BE COMPLETED IN FULL AND APPROVED BEFORE A DOG CAN BE MET. Please do not contact us requesting a meeting with a dog because we are an all-volunteer organization, and these requests tie up our volunteers who could instead be checking applications.

As you can imagine, we are only able to save as many dogs as we have foster homes (https://anewchancear.org/foster/faqs/) and resources for. We do not have a shelter facility and we provide medical care including vaccinations, testing, deworming, spaying/neutering, and microchipping before transporting our dogs. Then, we provide whatever follow up care is necessary while they are in foster care. All of this is very expensive and the number of lives we can save is entirely dependent upon donations from people like you. We do not receive funding from private foundations or government sources, so if you can find room in your heart to help us, with any amount, we are truly grateful (https://anewchancear.org/help/donate/). We are a 501c3 organization, so all donations are tax-deductible. It is only through your kindness and that of supporters like you that we are “changing lives…one tail at a time” by providing our dogs with “A New Chance.” (www.anewchancear.org)

Thanks so much.
