Reston Pet of the Week: Custis

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Custis, a 2-year-old Basset/Beagle mix who is searching for his forever home.

Here is what the folks at Homeward Trails Animal Rescue have to say about him:

Custis is a happy male Basset/Beagle mix who is only two years old. He is about 30 lbs. Custis is shy with new people but warms up quickly and bonds well to his human. He really loves dogs and his personality REALLY comes out when he gets to play with other dogs! He is a very sweet and quiet little guy who would love to find his forever home.

Custis will do better in a suburban environment with less city noise as he finds this stressful. He needs a patient person who is able to help him gain confidence.

Custis is in temporary boarding and needs a foster. Most importantly, he would love to find his forever home.

The adoption fee for this dog is $300. This fee INCLUDES spay/neuter and microchip. If the animal you are adopting is not already spayed/neutered, you will be required to sign a contract legally obligating you to have the animal altered. .

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please fill out our dog adoption questionnaire and e-mail it to [email protected] You can find the adoption questionnaire on Homeward Trails’ website.

If you and Custis are a match, let us know and we will put you in touch with our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, who will send you treats and $100 in Becky’s Bucks.
