Reston Pet of the Week: Johnson

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Johnson, an older guy who needs a forever home.

Here is what the people at Homeward Trails Animal Rescue have to say about the hound/Lab mix:

Johnson is an awesome 50 lb. hound/lab mix dog. He is outgoing and friendly and happy to make friends with children, dogs and cats.

He’s a mature boy — not quite 9 years old — but full of life. He’s a bouncy boy who is calm in the house but loves walks. Johnson is an enthusiastic, happy boy. He is housetrained. He is not a fan of the crate — he prefers to find a nice spot to hang out in the home.

Johnson would be happy in a home with other dogs or as an only dog. He’s lived with cats as well as with dogs. He’s really gentle with children.

Johnson’s fantastic personality saved his life. Johnson was found as a stray and brought to a rural shelter. Being a mature and larger-size hound normally would have weighed heavily against his odds of getting out of the shelter alive. But Johnson quickly won the hearts of the shelter staff who make it their mission to save this charming, good natured and friendly gent.

Johnson is now eagerly looking forward to finding his new home. He hopes to find a home where he won’t be alone too much — he loves human companionship.

Johnson is in a foster home and is eagerly waiting to find his forever home.

Johnson’s adoption fee is $275. Please fill out an HT adoption questionnaire if you are interested.
