Reston Pet of the Week: Hope

Becky's Pet Care

This is a sponsored post by Becky’s Pet Care.

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Hope, a 4-year-old Terrier/American Staffordshire mix who needs a forever home. Here is what her people at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter have to say about her:

Hope [noun]: is defined as a feeling that something good will happen or be true. Hope’s new family is in for something REALLY good!

She is a bit quiet and shy with new people, but once she gets to know and trust you, she is a gentle, happy girl who wants nothing more than to be near her people.

Some of her favorite things include playing hide-and-seek, napping in the sunlight, keeping watch at the windows, and carrying her favorite toys with her wherever she goes.

She is housebroken, will quietly sleep on her dog bed (although she’d prefer being next to you in the human bed), and is a great walking companion. She still needs some work building her confidence and being comfortable with new situations and people, but she will be the perfect addition to a patient, calm, and loving home.

Hope is currently staying with a foster family who says she has captured their hearts! If you are interested in meeting this sweet girl, please email us as [email protected] for more information.

Thanks to a sponsor, Hope’s adoption is free.
