Meet Reba, this week’s Reston Pet of the Week. Reba is a 9-month-old, 35-pound dog thought to be a Labrador and pointer mix. She is being boarded now and is up for adoption through the group K-9 Lifesavers.
The rescue organization uses volunteer foster homes across the D.C. metropolitan area and will participate in the 10th annual Home 4 the Holidays pet adoption event at Reston Town Center on Nov. 1. The adoption event will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 11900 Market St.
Here’s what K-9 Lifesavers had to say about Reba.
This country girl from Georgia is ready for your home! She’s so cute in person that her picture doesn’t do her justice. She’s very smart and eager to play in the summer sun. Reba is the perfect age for training and socialization. She would make a great addition to any size home. Summer lovin’ is all she craves!!! And of course your forever home too!

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
