This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Sampson, a Collie in need of a home. If you are up for adopting him, let us know and we will reward you with treats and gifts from our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care.
Here is what his people at Collie Rescue, Inc. has to say about him:
Meet Sampson! He’s a sweet boy who is 6 years old. He just came to CRI and we gave him a nice grooming and dental cleaning. We do know that this friendly guy has poor vision, so we are having a specialist check out his eyes. But so far, he seems to get around just fine.
He is super friendly, affectionate, and very sweet. He longs for attention and will sit on your feet and lean into you to ask for some hugs. Sampson loves to play with other dogs, both big and small. He is a wonderful big boy!

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.
