This week’s Reston Pets of the Week are three rescue dogs adopted by Christina and Josh. Here is what they say about their quirky troop of dogs:

We have thee pups, who we like to call our “misfits.” All three are rescues.

Jersey (the brown one — aka JZ, Jerz, big guy) is the sweetest teddy bear. He’s a 92-pound, blind, Australian shepherd mix. Sadly, he’s getting old and prefers to spend his days sleeping. His favorite treat is “bacon,” which is actually ice cubes.

Chewy (the black one — aka monkey, bug, sneezers) is our snuggliest pup. He’s a 45ish-pound lab mix who has been kicking cancer’ss butt. He’s the oldest, but is quite spunky, and entirely too goofy. Goes crazy over bananas!

Jorja (the white one — aka Jorjina, Pants) is the smartest of the bunch. She’s a 40ish-pound terrier mix, and she’s always on alert. She thinks the world revolves around her, but it’s easy to fall in love with her. She loves trying to chase squirrels up trees!
