Reston, VA

Meet Dottie, a brown and white female Pointer mix available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation have to say about her:

Dottie can’t wait to meet you! She loves people of all sizes and ages, as long as they give her pets and ear scratches!

Dottie is good on the leash, but being a high-energy pointer means that she is on the go and eager to go faster. (Age is just a number!) She is very polite when meeting other dogs and happy to say hello. If other dogs bark at her, she just walks on by and doesn’t react at all. Not much fazes her! That’s why she’s great with kids, too.

Whatever it is, Dottie is always up for the next adventure in the great outdoors! Make this special girl a part of your family today!

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

Meet Tilley, a young Dilute Tortoiseshell female available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at The Feline Foundation of Greater Washington Inc have to say about her:

Tilley is a sweet and gentle dilute calico girl that was dumped at the shelter by her owner.

She’s as sweet as she can be, not holding any grudges against humans for doing this to her. The owner now has a dog and decided that even though Tilley likes dogs, she needed to go. FFGW was happy to get Tilley into a foster home where she’s already happy to enjoy the Foster Mom sharing her bed with her!

Tilley is in great health and has no issues other than being dealt a hand by no fault of her own. The only reason Tilley might look like she’s giving us the “eye” in her photos is because we were trying to get pictures for her bio, and she was just getting ready to go to sleep! Who can blame her? No one wants woken up before bedtime!

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

Here is what his friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation have to say about him:

Kobe is a sweet dog who came from Mayaguez, Puerto Rico and is here looking for a new forever home!

Kobe has a chill island vibe about him. He loves to sit and cuddle. And he’s always up for long walks and jogs to stay fit with you. He knows simple commands and appears to be house trained. He is a fast learner and very treat motivated.

Meet Chester, a white male American Bulldog available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation have to say about him:

Chester is an absolute sweetheart! This gentle giant lived successfully with children in his previous home for years. He is very loving and loyal, and is used to sleeping in his owner’s bed every night.

Chester is house trained and is able to be left alone for up to eight hours at a time. He is also good on a leash and knows “sit,” “come,” and “lay down.” His favorite game is “keep away” and he loves chewing on antlers.

Chester just wants someone to love if you are looking for an adorable couch potato!

Pet of the Week: Hazel

Meet Hazel, a female Pit Bull mix available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation have to say about her:

She brings joy and sunshine into every room she enters. She can turn any frown upside down. She’s the friendly, cuddly Hazel!

As she trots through the halls of Lost Dog Rescue, Hazel holds her head high to accept pats and greetings from everyone she passes. Always full of happiness, she can’t help but wiggle her whole body at all times. She knows how to sit and absolutely LOVES to give hugs, but not as much as she enjoys receiving them.

Hazel is potty trained and is such a pleasure to take for walks. Hazel is basically the best dog ever. If you can give her a lifetime of unlimited hugs, Hazel will accept your application to adopt her today!

Are you and Hazel 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: Gus

Meet Gus, a male Coonhound, Treeing Walker/Bloodhound available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at NOVA Pets Alive have to say about him:

Gus the goof is a cartoon dog personified. He is 1.5 years old and 70 lbs, full of silliness and love and has no idea how to enter a room gracefully.

This cutie captures the hearts of everyone he meets. He loves to play with dogs, is scared of cats and will let them run the house, and has a blast running around with kids.

Gus is a giant puppy looking for a home to love him and appreciate him for who he is — a gentle giant with coordination issues. You can apply to adopt Gus at novapetsalive.org/adopt!

Are you and Gus 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: Abby

Meet Abby, a black Border Collie Labrador mix available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation have to say about her:

Abby is an active Lab/Border Collie mix looking for a family who can satisfy her need for adventure.

She loves anything that lets her burn off some energy. Whether it’s an hour at the dog park or a day-long hiking adventure in the mountains, she is always down for a good time. She knows basic commands and has done well in play group.

Abby would love to find a family who can give her the attention she deserves. She would benefit from an experienced home with no young children. So, if you think you can keep up with this energetic, awesome girl, she’d love to meet you!

Meet Zema, a young tricolor Beagle available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at Beagle Rescue Education and Welfare Inc have to say about her:

Zema is a 2-year-old spayed beagle mix.

We discovered she loves her humans, but we think she would do better in a home with no other dogs. She doesn’t like other dogs competing for snuggle time!

She is a true adventuress who is supremely happy riding around in the car or hiking in the woods.

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

Meet Vixey, a young black Domestic Short Hair female available for adoption locally.

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

A sweet kitten. She has really come out of her shell in the last few weeks.

She came to Little Buddies a painfully shy little girl. It could be thanks to the charm of her fellow foster, Sleeve, or just growing up a bit.

She is much playful and very active. She enjoys running, leaping and pouncing her foster mate as well as simply entertaining herself with a toy.

She is not one to be held but she is affectionate — just on her terms — after play time.

Vixey has an absolutely stunning, shiny black coat (these photos do not capture it). It is no wonder black cats have been revered for centuries around the world.

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

Meet Carly, a brown and white Pit Bull mix available for adoption locally.

Carly is a mini pittie with a zest for life! If you’re looking for a companion who will help keep you on your exercise plan, Carly is more than happy to ensure you stay motivated!

Carly loves to run around in playgroups with her doggie friends to help burn off her energy. She is already mastering the leash and is happy to go for miles and miles! But she is also happy to stop for petting breaks! Carly is very smart and knows “sit” with clear potential for learning more skills.

Carly is a sweet girl who just wants to make the most of life in every possible second. Seize the day with Carly and make her the latest adorable addition to your life today!

Meet Roxy, a brown female Weimaraner mix available fro adoption locally.

Here is what her foster family has to say about her:

Roxy is a sweet, affectionate gal and champion snuggler. She loves to run and play and adores toys, fetching balls and playing tug of war with her humans or canine siblings, but she’s also great at just relaxing and hanging out. She is a loyal companion who loves her people, always following them around and wanting to give hugs and kisses.

At the end of the day, she just wants to be with you on the couch or bed (and she has some truly hysterical sleeping positions!). Whether she’s snuggling up to her favorite person or playing with her fellow pups, this cutie has a great time. She’s incredibly smart, trainable and responsive to her name and correction, and she already knows words like “sit,” “stay,” “wait,” “look,” “leave it”, “find it”, “drop it”, “hug”, “place”, “down”, “off”, “crate”, “touch” and “come.” She is house trained and crate trained, although she’s so well behaved, she is rarely crated.

The best environment for Roxy would be a single family home with a fenced in yard in a quiet neighborhood. She finds the whole world extremely exciting and tends to get overwhelmed by a lot of stimulation. Therefore, she’d do best in a quieter suburban area where this is less action (apartment living would not be a good fit for Roxy). She could also do a townhome in a quiet neighborhood with a small yard (this is where she is now). She’d love to have a canine sibling, that is average energy and chill (she couldn’t do good with a dominant dog), but would also do okay as only dog, as long as she is adequately exercised.

Roxy gets a little nervous meeting new people, so this needs to be managed. Her excitement can sometimes be a little noisy at first, but she settles quickly and then wants to be everyone’s best friend. Young kids, however, make her especially nervous, so we recommend a home with no kids under 10.

Everyone that meets Roxy falls in love… however, she has only gotten applications from people in apartments or with small children, so she’s been in foster care for a year with no good fit. Could you use some Roxy in your life? She promises lots of love to whoever will love her.

Roxy also has her own Instagram @roxylotsoflove and can be found on Facebook.

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

Meet Harley, a white/cream Great Pyrenees male available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at National Great Pyrenees Rescue have to say about him:

Harley is an adult Great Pyrenees couch potato who gives a great Pyr Paw. This boy has great house manners and is content to take naps and hang with his person.

Harley thinks his hair cut is cute but wants us to tell you that it will grow back long and beautiful to look like the regal boy he is inside! Harley was so matted, cutting his hair was the only way to remove them. Harley prefers to go outside to do his business and then come right back in the house.

Harley is currently living with other dogs but would be content to be an only dog or perhaps a companion for a senior dog. He loves attention and would not be sad if he had somebody to pet him all day long! Harley will play with other dogs and his people and is gentle and well-behaved. He was very gentle when he met a child who came to visit. Like most Great Pyrenees, Harley will bark at a leaf when it tries to attack!

Are you and Harley 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: Romeo

Meet Romeo, an adult male Domestic Short Hair available for adoption locally.

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

Romeo was rescued from the outdoors. The vet estimated him to be around 5 years old. He tested positive for FIV and requires an indoor only home.

Romeo is a very sweet boy who enjoys playing with his toy mice; greets his mom when she comes home, follows her around the house and sleeps in bed with her all night. He is talkative, loves attention and purrs often. He will make a great pet in a home without small children or elderly.

When first rescued, Romeo was unsure of people and liked to unexpectedly swat. However, he has made remarkable progress and has become more acceptable of being picked up and petted. Still, it is recommended that Romeo be adopted by someone who understands cats that have a touch temperament. Romeo is handsome and incredibly lovable.

Are you and Romeo 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: Shane

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Shane, a male grey & white Domestic Short Hair mix available for adoption locally.

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

Shane is a gentle gem. His ideal home is quiet and calm where he can curl up with you. Be careful though, he can be a blanket hog!

Strikingly good looks and a friendly demeanor, he was found in a feral group at the Shenandoah University, Winchester campus.

We think he was abandoned there. Won’t you restore his faith in humans and bring home with you?

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