Pet of the Week: Diesel

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Diesel, a German Shepherd dog mix available for adoption locally.

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

Diesel is a goofy shepherd mix who loves to go, go, go!

His favorite things include playing fetch and tug with his rope toy. Going out for a walk is always at the top of his list. And after a day of play and fun, Diesel is ready to curl up with his people nearby to get some sleep.

We’ve got a laundry list of reasons about why he’s the PERFECT pal. For starters, this lovable boy is;

  • A snuggler. Snuggling with nice people and his fuzzy toys is his favorite pastime.
  • A lover! Seriously, this guy loves EVERYONE.
  • An adventurer. Walking, hiking, exploring the great outdoors — Diesel is a great companion for active folks, too!
  • An absolute goofball! This cool guy really likes to play and has a knack for keeping his humans thoroughly entertained. Who needs television when you have a Diesel?

Diesel’s got a lot of love to give, and one adoption application can send him to his forever home today!

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.

Pet of the Week: Mikey

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Mikey, a labrador retriever mix available for adoption locally.

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

Full of puppy love and the sweetest guy you’ll ever meet.

Mikey is an adorable 7 month old lab mix looking for his forever home, and is also looking for some key elements in his forever home.

Mikey is very shy and timid so another fun-loving yet confident canine friend is preferred, as well as a patient, calm family that is willing to go the extra mile allowing Mikey to decompress and readjust to a new home.

Having another canine companion would allow Mikey to learn and build confidence as he readjusts to new people, places and things. It took him some time to feel comfortable and safe at the shelter but now that he has little personality shines!

Transitioning to a new home is exciting, but also stressful for little guys like Mikey. Please allow Mikey 4-6 weeks at minimum to decompress and feel like part of your family.

Are you and Mikey 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: Cheeto

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Cheeto, a tabby & domestic short hair mix kitten available for adoption locally.

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

Cheeto is a delightful young cat. He is full of affection and love.

He is quite the lap cat. His antics at play time will bring a smile to your face.

Cheeto was rescued from the outdoors. He gets along well with dogs and children. He will be about 4 months old the end of November.

(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: Astro

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 Astro, a goldendoodle who calls Reston home.

Here is what Astro’s owner, Paige, had to say about him:

Astro is a 1 and a half year old goldendoodle who has so much personality!

Astro can be seen carrying his favorite stick proudly around the neighborhood during his walk, or “giving the belly” — his way of asking strangers to give him belly rubs.

Astro loves to pout when his parents leave for work and is equally excited, bouncing between sofa cushions, when they return. Although he is both golden retriever and poodle, he is working on his swimming skills. He will get there some day.

He’s a total goofball who befriends any person or creature he encounters, with the exception of squirrels.

If you see us around Lake Anne or RTC, please say hi!

Pet of the Week: Jack

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Jack, a retriever mix available for adoption locally.

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

Jumping Jack is such an adorable puppy with that cute little face. At six weeks old and about 6 pounds we think that he is a retriever mix. He will most likely be a nice medium/large size guy when full grown, perhaps around 50 pounds.

This great little guy is a nice friendly affectionate puppy that loves to play and gives great puppy kisses. He can’t wait to meet his new family with whom he can grow and learn.

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Sophie, a labrador retriever mix available for adoption locally.

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

Sophie is an amazingly sweet, friendly and well behaved for such young puppies.

Sophie is good in her crate, being quiet but loves visits from anybody willing to pay her a little attention. She has the cutest way of lifting her paw as if she is coyishlly waving at you!

Sophie is not a wild child, but is playful as a puppy should be. Most of all, she would like her very own home with a family to love.

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

He is looking for his forever family who wants a four legged family member ready to play! He is going to make some lucky family a great companion.

Sweet disposition with just the right amount of silliness!

Meet Latte, a Great Pyrenees & Shepherd mix available for adoption locally.

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

Lovely Latte is so cute and furry and this playful girl would love a chance to start her new life with you. She wants to learn and play as she grows.

Yes… since she is young, potty training will be involved but she will learn quickly. She will be your best friend for life!!

Lovely Latte is a Great Pyreness mix so she will most likely be about 60 pounds or more. All that beauty can’t be wrapped in a small package forever… even though she is only 8 pounds at 2 1/2 months.

Pet of the Week: Bach

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Bach, an adult tabby available for adoption locally.

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

One look into Bach’s beautiful blue eyes and you will be hooked! Bach is a totally delightful guy. He is extremely affectionate and loves to sit in laps.

When his foster mom sits down in a chair, Bach is right there to jump into her lap and get lots of petting. Bach is a gentle spirit. He also has lots of playful energy. Bach would make a perfect cat in any home. He would do very well with other pets and with children.

He is about seven years old. Bach has been diabetic since December of 2015. Although he gets twice daily shots, it is very easy to give him his insulin shots. Bach needs a special, very responsible, and caring person who can care for his diabetes.

Come meet this wonderful and loving guy!

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