Yukon (above) is a two-year-old shepherd mix with a coat—and heart—of gold. She’s sweet and playful, but past the sometimes annoying puppy stage. She is also very social and thrives on attention; she’ll even give you a gentle nudge to encourage interaction. Yukon will soon begin medication for heartworm disease, which means her physical activity will need to be limited for a while. But in no time at all, she’ll be ready to take on the world! Meet her at the Washington Animal Rescue League.
Boss is a gorgeous redbone coonhound who is about two years old and is looking for a forever or foster home. He’s on the smaller side for a redbone, between 40 and 50 pounds, but what he lacks in size, he makes up for in personality! Boss probably hasn’t lived in a home before and is still learning his manners, but with some basic obedience training he will be the perfect addition. Boss seems to have lots of energy to burn, as well, so a home with a fenced yard or an active family is best for him. Boss is generally a happy-go-lucky pup and is looking for someone equally as happy to have him! For more information on Boss, please visit Rural Dog Rescue.
Tripp is a sweet hound mix who we think is just under a year old. Tripp was brought into a high-kill shelter after being hit by a car. Volunteers in North Carolina were able to pull him from the shelter and bring him to the vet, where they found out he had two broken legs. He has since had surgery to repair the breaks and is doing great and can’t wait to find his forever family in the DC area! He’s still very fearful from what he has been through, so currently RDR is only considering applicants for Tripp who have another dog at home who can show Tripp the ropes. While he’s shy in public, he warms up very quickly at home and, as you can see, is an absolute love bug! For more information on Tripp, please visit Rural Dog Rescue.
