Reston Pet of the Week: Angel

Becky's Pet Care


This week’s Pet of the Week is Angel, a small older dog who needs a forever home. Here is what the good people at Mutt Love Rescue have to say about her:

Poor Angel found herself homeless after her human had to go to a nursing home.

She is a 10-year-old miniature pinscher who, while well loved, was not cared for properly. As you can see by her pictures, Angel was carrying around some extra lbs. when we got her, but she has lost half of her original weight and is now at her target weight of 15 lbs!

While on paper, she may be considered a senior, she still has a lot of spunk! The whole back half of her body wiggles when she wags her non-existent tail. You’ve got to see it.. it’s really cute! Angel is a volunteer favorite and we would love to see her in a wonderful new home.

We have adoption events EVERY SATURDAY from 12-3 p.m. Please note that not all dogs can attend every event, so if you are interested in meeting a particular dog, please complete a no-obligation application on our websiteOR write to [email protected].

Are you and Angel a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you $100 in Becky’s Bucks, as well as some treats.
