“Meet Tucker (above)! As of today, Tucker is a four-and-a-half-month-old English chocolate Labrador retriever and a local celebrity in the Columbia Heights/U Street neighborhood. Tucker enjoys cuddling with his family, long walks around the neighborhood, and camping out at intersections so he can impose his love on all who pass by.”

“Elsa is a five-year-old Catahoula Leopard Dog mix that we adopted five months ago from the Washington Animal Rescue League. We live in the U Street/Columbia Heights area in DC. Elsa loves taking walks and dragging her mom down the block to chase a squirrel!”

“Frida is a fun and outgoing Goldendoodle from the Mount Vernon Triangle area in DC. She’s very special because although she’s handicapped, it doesn’t slow her down!”

“Ziggy is a recently adopted five-year-old Westie mix who came to us through PetConnect Rescue. As a rehomed dog, Ziggy has seen a lot of changes in his life, but he is a sweet, trusting, and smart boy! Ziggy loves his new life in Bethesda, where he enjoys walking the Capital Crescent Trail, ‘trying’ new restaurants with dog-friendly patios, and showing off his dance moves (yes, he dances). Most important, he makes the people he comes into contact with happy!”
