Reston Pet of the Week: KB

Becky's Pet Care


Meet KB, a senior Collie who needs a new home and is this week’s Pet of the Week.

Here is what the people at Collie Rescue Inc. have to say about him:

KB is looking for a permanent foster home through the Collie Companions Care Program at Collie Rescue Inc.

KB is a handsome guy looking for a new place to call home. CRI recently rescued him, and we believe he is about 10 years old or more, but he still has plenty of energy and a healthy appetite.

Because of his older age, he is a bit hard of hearing. But that doesn’t stop him from finding ways to understand you. When he sees the leash come out, he gets a big smile on his face and know it’s time for a w-a-l-k!

He’s currently in a foster home where he is settling in and checking things out. KB has lots of curiosity and loves to investigate everything around the house, including the other dogs who live at his foster home. He gets along with both dogs and cats.

KB is very well house-trained and sleeps through the night, especially when a comfortable dog bed is involved.

There are two things we know KB loves. First, he loves butt scratches! He likes them so much that he almost falls over when he leans into them. Second, he loves feeling the breeze in his hair! When driving, he likes to stick his face out the window and smell the air whipping by.

This old man may have some years on him, but he is adorable and full of gratitude. He just needs a family who can provide him with tons of love back! Could you be the one? Contact us at Collie Rescue, Inc. to learn more about the requirements of adopting.
