From the bit of information you posted, that sounds like a great dog! I really like Westies; they are nice and small, but also very sturdy dogs. And that is a great age for a rescue, since he will be past all the puppy craziness, but still has a lot of years to enjoy. I agree with SR - take him out and see what you think! You'll know if it is right . Good luck.

alright thanks!sometime soon all of my family will go and take a look at him. And I know that the shelter will tell me this info, but how much would a 15 lb dog like him eat in one day is you had to guess?

I would say maybe 1/4cup a feeding..

Its all based on activity level though. The more activity the more you can potentially feed.

Thanks again for all your input, but I am sorry to say for me, but happy to say for the dog, that the little guy was adopted!I am happy for him, so my family and I are still looking to rescue.

But is is funny how things work out, I was talking to a lady yesterday who fosters dogs, and I told her that I thought fostering would be a good idea, and she told me that she is always looking for people to foster senior dogs! I think this would be a great oppurtunity, and I have to talk about it with my family. And maybe along the way we will see a dog that we would like to actually adopt. Another good thing the place that we would be fostering for pays for pretty much everything, except food and toys and stuff, so this way my family and I can see how much a dog will really cost, without actually paying it, since we havent had a dog in a very very long time.

So I just wanted to keep you all updated in what is happening, and I will tell you if we do decide to foster, but it may take a month or two.
