Becky's Pet Care

This is a sponsored post by Becky’s Pet Care, which has provided quality pet sitting services to the area since 1998.

Meet Hendrix, a German Shepherd/Collie mix who is currently at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter waiting for a would-be dog owner to adopt him.

Here is what county shelter staff have to say about Hendrix, who is estimated to be about 11 years old:

Hendrix came to us from one of our rescue partners, where he had come in as a stray. We don’t know much about his background, but we have found him to be a sweet, older gentleman.

He would do best in a home where he can have a warm soft bed to lay in and some short afternoon walks. He has excellent leash manners, is a very mellow dog, and appears to get along fine with other dogs. He will probably need some dental work in the future, but that’s a small price to pay for a loyal companion like Hendrix!

If you are interested in adopting Hendrix, call the shelter at (703) 830-1100 to speak to an adoption representative. If you are a match, let us know and we will give you treats and $100 in Becky’s Bucks from our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care.
