Daisy, 12 years old, spayed female, 35lbs, lab mix
Daisy is a healthy older girl who love head rubs and comfy beds. She would prefer a quiet home with not a lot of hussle and bussle or strangers in and out. She is a timid girl and is a bit anxious. She is fully housebroken, enjoys the outdoors and is very laid back. Daisy is a special old girl who deserves a perfect home to fit her needs. She needs to be the only pet in the home and would do best in a home with a yard.
Chumley, Basset mix, 10 years old, neutered male, 30lbs
Chumley is quite a character! He was a stray but is estimated to be around 10 years old. Although he only has one tooth remaining, he definitely still has that pep in his step! He LOVES food and will let you know if he wants a treat! Chum LOVES his stuffies and always has a toy or two near by. He would do best as an only dog. He is potty trained and good on leash. He is very sweet and full of personality. Chumley would do fine in a home or an apartment and will be sure to bring lots o joy! He’s the perfect family man.
Annabelle, Pit Bull Terrier, 7 years old, spayed female, 50lbs
Annabelle came to us as a stray found in a busy DC neighborhood. She was completely emaciated, presented with mutliple mammory masses, in-tact and now diagnosed with diabetes. Nonetheless, she is sweet as can be. She did well with dogs during her eval and has been nothing but love in her foster home. She is housebroken and walks well on leash. She needs to continue to put on weight and we are working to manage her diabetes. She will need insulin injections twice a day.
Henry, West higland Terrier mix, 15 years old, netuered male, 20lbs
Old Man Jack, Jack Russell Terrier, 10 years old, neutered male, 9lbs
Jack is a sweet little Jack Russel Terrier who currently lives in a foster home with 4 other dogs. He gets along very well with them, albeit they are all so much bigger than him.
Jack enjoys his daily walks around the neighborhood and his many forays in the fenced in back yard.
Jack is hard of hearing and his eye sight is not very good, but he gets around just fine once he knows the territory. He would do well in a home with another small dog and older, considerate children.
Jack does not care to be picked up but will tolerate it once he establishes trust. With some TLC, he warms up nicely and really loves his humans. He loves sitting next to you on the couch.
He is housebroken and loves his little crate, his man cave, with warm beds and blankets.
Jack loves his meals and can be quite noisy if it is prepared too slow. He also likes to bark at his foster parents when he thinks he deserves a treat which is pretty much every time he comes back in the house.
Jack is a wonderful little fellow who would love to find his forever home.
Rosie, Miniature Pinscher, 10 years old, spayed female, 8lbs
Beautiful Rose came from a situation of severe neglect. She was brought to the shelter where they treated all her needs, including a spay, hernia repair and long overdue nail trim. She has been timid but friendly and loving. She has done well with dogs, large and small and pretty much ignores them. She is said to have done well with dogs and cats in her prior home and we think she would do fine with older kids.
Lenny, poodle mix, male, ~11 years old, 5lbs
Lenny is a very small and very friendly gentleman. He needs to see a cardiologist before he an be neutered or we address his yucky teeth. He also has some nueological deficits that have improved but may need to be addressed. Despite his medical concerns, he is such a happy, sweet boy. He does well with other dogs but really just wants attention from his humans. He loves to be held and with you at all times. He needs to go out a few times a day and would do best in a home where someone is home often. Becuase he is wobbly and not super steady on his feet, a home with limited stairs is best.

Bitsy, 7 years old, chihuahua mix, 9lbs
Bitsy came to us as a stray. She’s a friendly little girl who wants her person’s approval. She likes attention but also seems to enjoy some alone time. Her favorite place is the couch, maybe because it’s near the fireplace and toasty!
Initially she was very scared but she’s calmed down a lot once she adjusted to her new envrioment. (It’s probably pretty hard being a stray when you only weigh 9 lbs!) She is still frightened by loud noises and seems leery of men.
We believe she was someone’s pet at some point, since she is spayed and trained to use the pee pad. It only took her a week to get back to being fully house trained.
Bitsy is NOT a barker. She has an unusual little bark that you won’t hear very often. She is OK with other dogs, even if they’re large. She has been very interested in the outdoor cat; I think she’s happy to finally meet someone who’s more her size!
This sweet girl just needs some kindness so she knows she’s safe. She’ll be a loving addition to someone’s home!
Mulligan, 15 years old, neutered male, Pekinese, 16lbs
Waylon, 8 years old, Male, Coonhound, 60 lbs
Waylon was a stray found runnin thru a Hunt club in southern VA. He is super friendly, great with dogs and will make a great family dog! He needs to be neutered and has some lumps that need to be addressed. He may have been a working dog, living outside, so he needs help and patience as he acclimates to the good life, inside a loving home.

Little Lady, 13 years old, spayed female, Jack Russell Terrier mix, ~15 lbs
Little Lady is a gentle sweet soul. She is an old gal who believes she’s earned her right to spend her days napping. She sleeps most of the day away, occasionally waking to go outside. Her bitty back legs are a bit weak so sometime she walks a little sideways. She doesn’t seem to mind, but it makes stairs impossible. Don’t fret, she has also earned the right to be carried to where she needs to go. Lady likes to quietly observe those around her from her comfy cozy bed and leave the interacting to the young ones, but she won’t mind if you give her lots of pets and scratches. She is mostly house trained, but sometimes…you gotta go when you gotta go! No worries, she is completely fine wearing some bottoms, if you know what I mean ;). Her cute little eyes aren’t as sharp as they used to be. Bright lights and strong cold wind aren’t her favorite. She is patiently awaiting her Doggle’s order to see if that helps!
She would love a forever home that will treat her like princess she is. She’s earned it!
Gizmo, 11 years old, neutered male, Shih Tzu, ~14 lbs
Meet Gizmo, a sweet 11 year-old, 14 pound Shih Tzu. He is potty trained and good with other dogs. He recently had both eyes removed due to glaucoma. He was blind prior to losing his eyes but is still adjusting to life without his eyes. He would prefer a relatively calm home with no stairs (or someone who can carry him). He would also prefer a home with no kids and where someone can be home a decent amount of the time. He has done an excellent job learning his new surroundings in his foster home. He does have spurts of barking — whether it be wanting to know his people are nearby or excitement for meal time. He loves laying next to his people on the couch and rear-end scratches. He also rides great in the car. He is not a fan of crates. His foster parents baby gate him in a room when they have to leave although he could potentially be left out too, as he hasn’t ever had a potty accident in their house.
Maggie Mae, 14 years old, female, Pug, 20 lbs
This sweet pug muffin needed a lot of medical attention when she arrived, but was still the happiest gal! She has a very large bladder stone, horrible teeth and severe hind end weakness. She has surgery planned to remove the stone and perform a dental cleaing and we think this will help her a great deal. She may need to wear a diaper, due to the damage done by a bladder stone, but she does still go outside and enjoys wandering around slowly. Shes a happy girl looking for cuddles and of course, snacks! She would do best where someone is home a lot to help her stay safe and clean. She will likely need to be carried to the yard or outside. A yard would be ideal.
Bree, 13 years old, female, Pomeranian, 12 lbs
Bree is friendly but pretty aloof. She ignores other dogs and cats and spends most of her time napping in a comfy spot. She needs to go outside pretty often but is pee pad trained and enjoys outside potty breaks. She does not hear very well. She is not spayed and has some very infected teeth that need to be addressed.

Dixie Bell has lived with another dog before and seems to get along with them just fine and she is said to do well with cats although we have not had her with cats. She is still full of energy and enjoys walks but also really enjoys her treats. She is s little overweight and will need a good helthy diet to help her get to an ideal size.
