When Terry first saw 8-year-old Kolby's picture on the Westie Rescue website, it was love at first sight for her. Beautiful little Kolby had been relinquished to Westie Rescue because his owner no longer wanted him. Kolby had lost his sight due to cataracts he developed as a result of being diabetic.

Terry's beloved Wally, had just crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, and she was determined to bring Kolby into her life. Westie Rescue paid for Kolby's cataract surgery which restored his sight. After several weeks of recovery in a foster home, Kolby made the trip from Denver to Longmont and his forever home.

Kolby settled in with his adopted brother Jack, a mixed breed about the same size as Kolby. Although Kolby still has to have drops in his eyes once a day and insulin shots twice a day, he tolerates both without so much as a whimper, because he knows there's always at treat at the end of that tunnel!

Kolby's favorite game is playing with two toys at once. He uses one toy to bat the other one around the floor, creating his own game - with no other players needed. Part of the game also allows him to play "keep away" with Jack and his mom.

We greatly appreciate owners like Terry and their willingness to open their hearts and homes to our special needs dogs!
