Washington’s Adoptable Pets of the Week: December 12, 2014

Looking for a fury friend? One of these cuties—all available at Washington-area rescues—might be your match.

Casey (above) is an approximately four-year-old redbone coonhound. He’s incredibly sweet and gets along well with other dogs. Like many hounds, he would make a wonderful, loving, and loyal companion for anyone looking to add to their family. For more information on Casey, please visit the Rural Dog Rescue website.

Superman is approximately six months old and weighs around 40 pounds. He came from a high-kill shelter in very rough shape—very thin and with a bad case of (non-contagious) mange. With the right care and a lot of love, he is back on his feet and looking for a forever home. He gets along well with other dogs, but is looking for a home without cats. For more information on Superman and other adoptable dogs, please visit the Rural Dog Rescue website.

Tanner is a six-year-old Jack Russell mix living in a foster home in the DC area. He is about 40 pounds, and is an easy dog to love. He is low-energy and about as low-maintenance as dogs come—he just needs meals, some walks, and some regular love and attention. He is great with cats, he lives with other dogs without problems, and is terrific with older kids. Meet him through K-9 Lifesavers.

Maude is a beautiful shepherd mix who is approximately two or three years old. She weighs between 40 and 50 pounds. She is very friendly, eager to explore the world around her, and is great with all people. Maude has a medium-high energy level and would thrive in a home where she can go on walks and play. She is great with most dogs, but better with some than others. She has been living in boarding for quite a while and would really benefit from a loving home or foster home. Meet her through K-9 Lifesavers.

River is a one-year-old, 47-pound American Staffordshire terrier mix. He was surrendered to the Washington Humane Society after he was found as a stray in August. He has a beautiful fawn coat, goofy ears, and a big doggie smile. He’s very intelligent, loves to play, and is quiet and already house-trained. He’d make a great hiking buddy and couch companion. After months at the shelter, he’s ready to find a family. Meet him at the WHS New York Avenue Adoption Center.

Coco and Chanel are two loving sisters who lost the one home they had known since being kittens when a family member developed allergies. They are between three and four years old and need to find a new home together. You can meet them through Homeward Trails Animal Rescue.

Bo is a deaf border collie who was surrendered to a high-kill shelter because his owners were moving. He is two years old and 50 pounds. Bo loves people and is good with other dogs. He will watch for hand signals, and “listens” very well despite his disability. Bo is a sensitive boy who is in needs of TLC.
