Washington’s Adoptable Pets of the Week: May 29, 2015

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

Elvis is a goofy Coonhound-mix, approximately two years old. He is crate-trained, good with dogs of all sizes, and loves to play. Elvis listens very well and is calm and mellow for a young dog. Elvis is currently living at a doggy daycare so not only is he looking for his forever family, he also needs a foster home. Elvis would make a great addition to any family. For more information on Elvis, please visit the Rural Dog Rescue website.

Melbourne was surrendered to the shelter by his owners when they could no longer care for him. The shelter staff were told his mom was a labradoodle and his dad was a lab. He is approximately 8 months old and very affectionate. He is very friendly and great with other dogs. Melbourne already weighs about 60 pounds and is not done growing, so he is going to be a big boy. He would be happiest in a home with a fenced back yard and with another dog as a companion. He really loves to play with other dogs of all sizes but a medium to large dog companion would be best. Melbourne is not super high-energy but definitely needs a yard for romping around. He is somewhat scared of the indoors but is quickly coming around and learning to love being inside. He is housetrained and crate trained. Melbourne will make a great addition to any family. For more information on Melbourne, please visit the Rural Dog Rescue website.

Meatloaf Meatloaf is a two-year-old, 63-pound, American Staffordshire terrier-mix. Meatloaf came to the Washington Humane Society as a stray on April 16. He loves learning new things, especially when food is involved. Other things he likes include running, playing with toys, cuddling, and making shelter staff laugh while he throws his bone around the room for himself. You can meet him at the WHS New York Avenue Adoption Center.
