Reston Pet of the Week: Champ

Becky's Pet Care

Meet, Champ, this week’s Reston Pet of the Week. He’s a rescue dog who is very active. Here is what owner Claire has to say:

My husband, Steve, and I adopted our furry friend, Champ, from Lab Rescue this past January. We fell in love with his cute ears and his goofy, long tongue Champ is a 2 year old lab mix with lots of energy and tons of love. Champ loves to go on runs, play in the water and play ball on the field. He loves all the kids in our neighborhood and loves to watch them play out our front window.
We adopted Champ knowing that he was heartworm positive. In March, we went through the month long treatment to fight the heart worm. We just found out last week that he is no longer has heartworm!! He is such a tough, little guy and he truly is a champ. We are so proud of our buddy.

We are totally in love with Champ and he is the perfect addition to our little family.
