“Dixie (above) is a six-year-old, 25-pound ball of energy living in Arlington! She loves hiking, swimming in the ocean, and playing ball. She runs on the trails with us all over DC and Arlington.”

“Hampton is an apartment cat living near the Rhode Island Metro. He was rescued from a shelter and is now living the spoiled life. He loves belly rubs, watching TV, and playing fetch. He’s more like a dog and has a very outgoing personality.”

“Meet Flip, a wonderful black Lab mix who lives in Reston. A little over a year ago, we rescued him through City Dogs Rescue, which had saved him from a kill shelter in North Carolina right as his time was running out. He is well-behaved in the house, but has his ‘crazy dog’ side and loves to run around the yard like a wild maniac. His favorite things to do are to eat, play with other dogs, and sit right at (or on) our feet. Adopting him has made us appreciate life so much more.”

“Remy came into my life in mid-2012 as a puppy and was described as a pug. As you can see, she’s more of a Chihuahua/beagle mix, and I wouldn’t have her any other way. She lives in Alexandria, where she loves running around the Duke Street dog park, walking the Holmes Run trail, hanging out at A Dog’s Day Out when Mom is out of town, or just saying hello to everyone in the neighborhood. You won’t meet a more social, friendly dog.”

“These are our two Old English Sheepdogs, Bodie and Buck. Bodie will be seven in February, and Buck just turned one. Both boys live in Annapolis. Bodie is an avid Ravens fan, although he hates watching football—it makes him very, very nervous. Bodie is very attached to his mom and dad, and is very protective.”
