“Meet Liberty, a.k.a. Libby (above). She was born on July 4th and currently resides in Chevy Chase, DC. Libby is a blue French Bulldog and enjoys playing and snuggling with her four adoring human brothers (Caedon, 14; Gavin, 11; Owen, 10; and Easton, 5). She takes a lot of naps and loves going to the dog park on 41st & Western Ave NW to catch up with the neighbors.”

“Dewey of Falls Church is a seven-year-old English Springer Spaniel who was adopted through the Mid Atlantic English Springer Spaniel Rescue in 2014. His parents Alex and Kristin just adore this smiley little guy. He occasionally brings home a squirrel for dinner and really enjoys barking at the UPS man but other than that he is pure sweetness.”
“This is Nathan, a five-year-old dachshund from Columbia Heights (pictured at Meridian Hill Park). Nathan loves walking down the street and greeting his many adoring fans before going home and snuggling on the couch. He’s handsome and he knows it. Nathan was a puppy mill rescue from the Dachshund Rescue of North America.”
“This is Chloe. She’s a chatty cat who lives in Chinatown. Black cats have a more difficult time getting adopted than other cats, and Chloe spent almost a year at the Washington Animal Rescue League shelter before we brought her home with us six years ago. She’s lived a pretty good cat life since then, sleeping on everything and stalking birds through the window.”
