Pet of the Week: Butch

Becky's Pet Care

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

Meet Butch, a corgi mix available for adoption locally.

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

Butch is an adorable young dog, just over 2 years old and weighing in around 25 lbs. He loves sitting next humans and knows how to walk nicely on a leash.

Butch, who we believe is a Corgi mix, enjoys the company of other dogs and is sure to be a hit at home, on walks or at the dog park.

His size is perfect for joining you on car trips and his love of adventure is certain to make everyday life more enjoyable! The three words we use to describe him are loving, eager to please and well-behaved.

Butch is up to date on all shots and de-wormings, has been neutered and carries an adoption fee of $350 which includes his microchip.

Contact Adoption Coordinator Kendra with questions or to get in your application!

Pet of the Week: Waylon

Becky's Pet Care

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.

Pet of the Week: Penelope

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Penelope, a domestic short hair & tortoiseshell kitten available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at Little Buddies Adoption and Humane Society have to say about her:

Hi!

You won’t believe the week I have had. I had lived in the same place my whole life. I was not feeling very good, was itchy, and I was really pretty hungry.

The next thing I know, ROAD TRIP!

Out of West Virginia and now I am here! Internet famous. I got some medicine, and had a spa day and now I feel GREAT.

I may be smaller than my brothers, but I am not afraid of anything. I love to play ball. I also am crazy about getting my back rubbed… and my tummy.. and my head.. OK, I just love to be loved.

I am a very good girl. I am so excited to find my forever home. Things just get better and better. Please come see me Saturday!

(Note: Little Buddies has adoption events every Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. at Pet Valu in the North Point Village Shopping Center.)

Pet of the Week: Willow Grey

Becky's Pet Care

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

Meet Willow Grey, a Chihuahua mix puppy available for adoption locally.

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

Willow Grey is a stinking adorable little Chihuahua mix that’s about 1 year old and weighs approximately 9 lbs. Willow Grey gets along well with other dogs, puts up with our kitty, Carl and LOVES people!!

She’s not what you may typically find in a little dog, as she does not try to intimidate anyone and everyone who approaches, but instead she welcomes you with a happy little bark, a funny little smile and a tail wagging so hard it’s like she thinks it’s her flag waving you over!

Willow Grey loves to curl up and snuggle for a movie or good book, likes little nature walks, and she’s a Pisces — Just kidding. She DOES like snuggling and walks, but she also loves little play sessions of hide & seek and tag, or just being silly.

Willow Grey will be an excellent companion for just about any kind of family, as she’s truly quite diverse, incredibly loving and sweet and honestly cracks me up with her expressions.

I love prancing in my coat (mainly in the snow), taking long walks on the beach, going to the dog park to play and being admired.

I love snuggling, with my humans, with my sister Grace or my kitty brother Buxton… but honestly I will snuggle anyone or anything!

Pet of the Week: Chester

Becky's Pet Care

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

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Chester, a Dachshund who recently became a big brother.

Here is what Chester’s owner, Amanda, had to say about him:

Hi Restonites!

My name is Chester and I’m a 12 year old mini Dachshund. Don’t let my age fool you, I’m still very active. My favorite hobbies include sleeping on anything plush, sunning myself on the deck, getting into the trash, bossing around my dog cousins and going to the office with Mom.

I recently became a big brother to a little human that I’m just now starting to show a bit of interest in. We like to go for walks together in his stroller (I ride in the bottom compartment!) and snuggle on the couch.

I have a very strong personality aka I do what I want. Sometimes I pretend not to hear my parents when they want me to come inside but I can hear the fridge opening from 5 miles away.

If I feel like I’m not getting enough attention I’ll fake an injury (like that one time Mom was out of the country and I limped around until I thought nobody was watching and then I was fine. I got a steak out of that performance).

Most of the time I’m a sweet boy but slightly naughty :-). Mom always says it’s part of my charm.
