Reston Pet of the Week: Lina

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Lina, a special pup in need of a new home. She is currently being fostered by a Reston resident. If she helps get Lina some forever friends, Lina’s new parents will get treats and gifts from our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care.

Here is what foster mom Susan has to say about her:

Lina is a female hound mix who loves nothing more than a soft blanket to snuggle in, and she’s looking for her forever family!

She’s about 30 lbs. (but could stand to gain a few more) and very calm, gentle and sweet.

She’s approximately a year or so old and gets along well with other dogs. She’s been spayed and is excellent when crated. Lina especially enjoys poking around the backyard and meeting neighbors ­– she’s a Reston natural!

Lina was surrendered to a high ­kill shelter in South Carolina and brought here by Rural Dog Rescue. She’s been stressed by the all moves between foster homes and kennels and is currently being fostered here in Reston. We would love nothing more than for her next move to be into her permanent home ­ we would keep her ourselves but our family raises service dogs for the blind so we don’t have room for another permanent pet.

If you or someone you know might be interested in adopting Lina, please email Susan at [email protected] for more information.
