Pet of the Week: Lilllian

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Lillian, a black Labrador Retriever puppy who is available for adoption locally.

Here is what Lillian has to say about herself:

I am a young girl at just about 8 weeks and I current weigh 7 pounds. I am looking for a furever family who would like to bring my fluffy self home.

It would be great if my new family would take me on walks or let me run around in a fenced in yard. I would also love some toys to play with and a nice warm bed to sleep on if its not too much to ask.

As I am still a young girl I will likely do well in just about any type of home, be it as an only child or as a canine sibling to human, canine, and maybe even kitty siblings.

Are you and Lillian 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: Penguin

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Penguin, a black and white/tuxedo male kitten available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team have to say about him:

Penguin is an energetic cat who likes to climb, run around, play with toys, and give kisses. Unlike most cats, he is curious about water.

He will stick his paws on the humidifier and relish the steam, and he will keep you company as you brush your teeth.

Penguin loves to have his tummy rubbed and his chest scratched, and he purrs happily when he is petted. Penguin gets along well with other cats, but he would also be happy to have lots of attention from a human companion.

Are you and Penguin 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: Olaf

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Olaf, who is an adult male Great Pyrenees available for adoption locally.

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

Gorgeous 2 year old Great Pyrenees with that all around magnetic personality. He is just a bundle of joy to be around.

For a pyr, he is on the smaller side — he is about 80 lbs. Olaf is fully vetted, including his microchip, vaccinations, neutered and dewormed.

Olaf prefers dogs his size but is also dog selective, and finds cats to be too tempting. So he will need a home with no smaller dogs or kitties for sure.

Pet of the Week: Halloween (Halle)

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Halloween who goes by Halle, a domestic short hair female available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team have to say about her:

Halloween is named for her festive calico coloring. She goes by Halle and is very sweet and cuddly soft. She loves a good brushing or scratch behind the ears when you have a free hand or two.

You can find her in any warm window keeping watch of the neighborhood and alerting folks of visitors. Halle has shown patience for humans and other animals alike. Halle loves a cardboard scratching pad and has great litter box habits and has shown no problems adjusting when she had to move.

She has never been a fan of her doctor’s office though. She has lots of love to give and would make any modern or traditional family complete.

(Note: Fancy Cats & Dogs is having an adoption fair Saturday, Jan. 27 from 12-4 p.m. at the Reston South Lakes Pet Valu in the South Lakes Village Shopping Center.)

Pet of the Week: Carter

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Carter, a brown and chocolate tabby kitten available for adoption locally.

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

Carter is an amazingly affectionate young man. He loves people and loves to sit in laps. He runs to his foster mom when he sees her and loves to follow her around.

He also loves to run around and chase his toys. He will be the perfect companion to the lucky one who adopts him.

He does have to take stool softener daily because he may have a narrowing of part of his intestines, but this does not bother him. He loves his medicines and thinks they are treats.

(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: Highway

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Highway, an adult male pointer available for adoption locally.

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

There are many words to describe Highway — but FABULOUS is at the top of the list.

Highway has his name because he roamed the interstate for FOUR months before being caught. This is a mystery because he is the sweetest, friendliest guy you could ever imagine and LOVES people. He does not have a mean bone in his beautiful body, and will make you smile every day.

Highway loves to play… he loves toys and will catch a tennis ball out of mid air and bring it back to be thrown again. He knows some of his basic commands like sit and stay and is house-trained.

He loves other dogs, but mainly wants to be someone’s very best friend… and will jump right into your lap for extra love, if you let him. If not, he’s happy to curl up next to you, beside you, or nearby on his dog bed. He will sit by your desk quietly and wait for his turn for attention.

If you want a dog who truly will bond strongly, and will absolutely worship the ground you walk on, this is it.

Are you and Highway 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: 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: 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!
