Confetti is a two-year-old Staffordshire terrier-mix. He’s an enthusiastic and energetic girl looking for a human companion with similar qualities. He would love to spend his days playing and going for a run, then snuggling on the couch. Confetti is selective about his canine friends—he enjoys playing with some but not others. When it comes to people, however, he seems to like everyone. Smart and food motivated, Confetti has learned how to sit on command, is now working on “down,” and is eager to learn more tricks. Stop by the Washington Animal Rescue League and meet Confetti.
Meet Miguel, a cute little Chihuahua-mix, currently residing at the Washington Animal Rescue League. Since arriving at WARL in mid-January, Miguel has been waiting patiently for someone to realize what a wonderful canine companion he’d be. He’s friendly, and likes both people and other dogs, but is beginning to feel a bit sad now that his den-mate has been adopted. At seven years old, Miguel has the wisdom that comes with maturity but is still playful and energetic. He also qualifies for WARL’s Boomers’ Buddies program, which means his adoption fee will be waived for anyone 50 years or older. He’s waiting for you at the Washington Animal Rescue League.
Juniper is a one-year-old lab mix. She weighs about 50 pounds and will likely weigh 55 to 60 pounds fully grown. She is crate-trained and knows basic commands like “watch me,” “sit,” and “down,” and will perform all of them for a treat. She is very food-motivated. She is also very energetic and needs an active family who can handle a strong, active pup, and continue working with her on obedience training. She also needs a little bit of help with leash manners. She is better suited for experienced dog owners and families with children at least 10 years old. She would do best with a family in a quieter neighborhood where she can work on leash manners and get exercise and attention. Meet Juniper through K-9 Lifesavers.
