Pet of the Week: Skeeter

by RestonNow.com Sponsor — May 24, 2017 at 1:30 pm 0

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

Meet Skeeter, a Bichon Frise and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix available for adoption.

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

This little guy has it all!!!! Skeeter is the sweetest, friendliest little guy — just a WONDERFUL boy!!! He was an owner surrender and they have had him since he was a puppy. He is now 5 years old. The family purchased Skeeter from a breeder so we know his breed and age exactly. We can’t believe someone could give up their family member like this, but their circumstances changed and they are now traveling for extended periods of time so they made this decision.

The good news is that they have taken good care of Skeeter, and he is very well socialized. He LOVES children, other dogs and cats too. Skeeter hasn’t met a walking, breathing being that he does not love! He is also housetrained. Sound like the perfect doggie for you? Let us know and we’ll send an application! Skeeter’s adoption fee is $395

Email [email protected] for an application!

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

Pet of the Week: Jackie

by RestonNow.com Sponsor — May 17, 2017 at 1:30 pm 0

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

Meet Jackie, a Boxer and Labrador Retriever mix available for adoption.

Here is what her friends at Boxer Rescue and Adoption Inc. have to say about her:

Jackie has come a long way since she came into rescue. She was so afraid of everything, but now is far more outgoing. She loves taking walks, but needs some training in walking nicely without pulling.

Jackie takes treats gently, loves attention, is crate trained and housebroken. She is a pretty girl who loves being in the yard with us and enjoys her creature comforts when inside. She has a nice soft blanket that she snuggles into.

When our volunteer first started walking her, she had her tail tucked, but now, she’s just full of enthusiasm to be out and about. She is not a fence jumper or a digger and does like other dogs. We’re not sure about cats, though. She would probably be too much for toddlers.

If you are interested in meeting Jackie or any of our other rescues, please email [email protected] for an adoption application and arrange to visit Jackie or any of our other rescues.

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

Pet of the Week: Pumpkin

by RestonNow.com Sponsor — May 10, 2017 at 1:30 pm 0

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

Meet Pumpkin, a 11-month-old Cattle Dog mixed puppy available for adoption.

Here is what her friends at Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association (ACDRA) have to say about Pumpkin:

Pumpkin is full of energy and is looking for someone to show him the world. He needs a lot of socialization and training. He learns quickly and is eager to please, play, love, cuddle, climb on you, bite, chew, and jump. He walks pretty well on leash, except when he sees a squirrel. He tends to get over-excited over squirrels and bikes and is afraid of children, especially when they are running and riding bikes.

I don’t think cats and young children would like to live with him at all. However, adults and possibly older children who don’t mind a little dog lovingly climbing up on you for hugs and kisses and biting you out of pure joy will have a blast living with this little beast. But seriously, he will need some socialization work, he has not been exposed to many things. He learns quickly and has learned to sit and look at me for treats when he sees something freaky instead of running and lunging at it. He just needs some extra introductions and practice meeting new things in an appropriate manner. Once you have the socialization and housebreaking covered, you will have an awesome, fun, beautiful, little, orange dog. And you two will bond and grow together during your epic journey through a teenage puppy year or two.

Anyone who may be interested in adopting Pumpkin is invited to fill out an ACDRA application and then contact Adam at [email protected]. ACDRA staff members want to know about your experience with cattle dogs, your plans on how to exercise your new family member, and any training experience. They would also like to hear that you don’t plan on exposing a cat or other small creatures in your home.

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

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

Sally is an adorable and happy little girl who along with her brother Sammy are ready at nine weeks old to go to their forever families.

These great pups are a nice blend of friendly affection and normal puppy playfulness and will both be great company.

Pet of the Week: Geezer

by RestonNow.com Sponsor — April 19, 2017 at 1:30 pm 0

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

Meet Geezer, a lovable 6-year-old dog available for adoption.

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

Geezer is one of those very special dogs that don’t come along every day.

At 6 years old, he is polite, mannerly, and just wants to be someone’s heart dog. Geezer is great in the house, loves other dogs and does well with cats too! Most of all, he is just one of those dogs who steals your heart within 5 minutes of meeting him. Calm, but still has a touch of wiggly-ness when you talk sweet to him.

Do you want to go for walks? Geezer is up for that! No pulling on the leash business with him. He makes going on walks enjoyable — walking nicely beside you on a loose leash. Rides? Those are OK with him too! If you enjoy a nice lunch at an outdoor dining establishment, he’ll lies down right there by the table and wait patiently as you finish your meal. Then, go home and cuddle beside you, if you like, or if you really want to make him happy, give him a tummy rub.

He doesn’t require a lot, but deserves so much more than what he demands. Geezer will be a great family dog — he is good with kids. His ideal spot would be with a single person or family who really wants him to be part of that family.

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

One HANDSOME fella. Kodiak is a 2-year-old Labrador Retriever mix that weighs 55 pounds. Kodiak is incredibly sweet, loving and friendly; loves other dogs and absolutely loves all people!

Kodiak came to the shelter when we pulled him from a neighboring county’s high-kill shelter. When Kodiak came to us, he was heartworm-positive. He has now been treated and is ready to move on to a better life.

Kodiak would love nothing more than a family to love and a home to call his own. Can you give Kodiak his forever home?

Kodiak is up-to-date on all vaccines, is micro-chipped and has been neutered. His adoption fee is $350.

Pet of the Week: Diesel

by RestonNow.com Sponsor — March 1, 2017 at 1:45 pm 1 Comment

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

This week’s Pet of the Week is Diesel, available for adoption from the Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association. Here is what his foster mom, Lucinda, had to say about him:

Diesel loves going for hikes and runs, and will be a terrific companion for someone who enjoys the outdoors with him. Despite his energy, he is calm when at home and has been given free rein of the house at night with no issues. He is crate-trained and housebroken.

Diesel came to us very overweight, but has started to slim down. His forever home should be committed to maintaining his activity so he can get to the vet’s recommended weight. Diesel is about 2 1/2 years old and weighs about 42 pounds.

Diesel has barked at some tall men and a few dogs, probably due to previous experiences. He’s been great with our dog but I don’t think he’d be good with cats or small kids. He’ll benefit from some training and positive reinforcement to overcome some bad habits, like pulling on walks. I think his new home should have some experience with working dogs.

He loves the water and riding in cars.

Diesel is being fostered in Reston. Questions? Email sendamessagetoadam@gmail.com or submit your application now.

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