Pet of the Week: Waylon

by RestonNow.com Sponsor August 1, 2018 at 1:45 pm 14 Comments

This is a sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care, a professional pet care service in Northern Virginia.

Meet Waylon, a pit bull terrier available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about him:

This is Waylon and he is absolutely, without a doubt, positively, one of the best dogs I have ever known, and trust me, I have known A LOT of REALLY AMAZING dogs!!!

Waylon is an ambassador of his breed, and in mine, as well as several other “dog people’s” opinion, he would make an excellent therapy dog. Again, that is not something I say very often, but there’s truly something very special about this boy.

He has this innocence about him that is so amazing to witness and really tugs at your heart. Waylon loves ALL other creatures and honestly wants to be friends with anything or anyone he meets!

He will be an awesome companion for his human(s), as well as any other animals in the family, and with further positive training he will be the kind of dog you can take anywhere and leave everyone who meets him “awe struck” by what a remarkable dog he is.

Are you and Waylon a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.

    Kill it. Burn it. Feed it to the pigs. There are too many of these and they attract the least responsible owners. Even the best owners often cannot control these man-designed shredding machines. Each one is a potential time bomb.

    • Sam

      Seriously? One could say the same about internet trolls like yourself. Educate yourself, then speak.

      • Mike M

        I am probably one of the most educated people you will ever meet. Allow me to educate you on your fantasy gangsta terms.

        There once was a blacksmith near Chernobil
        An old artillery shell served well as his anvil
        For decades he hacked
        He banged and he whacked
        Til 1990 KA-BOOM!

        True story Sam. See, you might get away with using an artillery shell as an anvil. You might think a live grenade can serve as a nice bad arse desk ornament. You might even think a pitbull can be your fantasy bad arse pet as sweet as the typical retriever. But these are all very bad ideas. Things often do what they were intended to do and on their own irrational timetable. They should only be used as intended or you are playing recklessly with life and limb.

          Education doesn’t matter when it comes to trashing the life and heart of an animal, a child who could be part of a family.

          • Mike M

            Does this dog read?
            Is it a little kid in a dog suit?
            I stand by my concerns about the pit bull. Why are there so many in need of rescue?

    • whackatroll

      mike m is one of those who doesn’t know how to be with people so trolling is his tiny life.

      • Mike M

        Thank you for your contribution to the discussion.

  • Sam

    He’s a handsome boy! We have a pit mix with every similar coloring.

  • Chuck Morningwood

    If you want something to pet, get a Shih Tzu. If you want something to maul the neighbor’s children, get a Pit Bull.

  • Amy Sue

    We have a pit in my neighborhood I avoid as much as I can. May not make sense to pit owners, but these dogs are extremely strong and unfortunately, have a history of vicious, deadly attacks. Maybe your pit is very sweet, but I’m going to be extremely cautious. And I wish you wouldn’t bring them into my neighborhood.

  • David Durant

    This Dog looks like it would be a wonderful addition to any household. All the negativity is mostly likely coming from people who base their opinions on Fox News level reporting. If you google “golden retriever attacks children” you will find plenty of stories.

    Get up out of your mothers basement and step away from trolling local shelter posts for a second and you will Likely see there are probably many pitbills in your neighborhood that have some how managed to suppress their “nature instinct” and not maul things to death.

    I hope this dog finds a great home far away from the idiots posting all of the negativity.

    • Mike M

      Pit bulls make up only 6% of the dog population, but they’re responsible
      for 68% of dog attacks and 52% of dog-related deaths since 1982, according to research compiled by Merritt Clifton, editor of Animals 24-7, an animal-news organization that focuses on humane work and animal-cruelty prevention.

      • Richard Smith

        Way to choose an article that was fact checked and found to be incredibly inaccurate and written by someone who is incredibly bias.

        Get a life man. You have spent all day arguing with people about the idea of these dogs finding a good home.

        Your home life must be a fun place.

        • Mike M

          Now Dick, I think I spent less than ten minutes on this. I stand by my statements and my sources. There are literally hundreds of sources on this. I am sorry if you wuv your pit. I just hope he doesn’t maul you, your family, or the neighbors.

          At the heart of my house are some really wonderful dogs who were not bred to shred. Why would anyone bring in a pit? Because they want to impress and intimidate their neighbors in a passive kind of way? Why do inner city teen-agers prefer pits? Where did that rescue come from? Was he abused in a way that will make him shred the next toddler he sees with a red blanket? You have no idea. Why play with hand grenades? It might never go off, but it was certainly designed to do ugly damage, not to be a paper weight.

          I stand by everything I have said on this. Your ad hominem attacks do not shield your silly denial.
