Washington’s Adoptable Pets of the Week: June 26, 2015

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

Rue arrived at the Washington Animal Rescue League in April with her three kittens. The babies have all found homes, and now it’s mom’s turn. Rue is a quiet and unassuming four-year-old domestic shorthair with gold eyes. She has a slow and deliberate approach, taking her time to explore new environments and become acquainted with new people. Rue enjoys human companionship but is not an “in your face” kind of cat. She’ll be content on her own during the day and then happily curl up on the sofa with you in the evening. Stop by the Washington Animal Rescue League to meet Rue.

Queen of Hearts is a sweet hound-mix. Until recently, she was busy caring for her nine extremely cute puppies live on Animal Planet’s Puppy Cam. Queen of Hearts proved to be a great mom, doting on her large litter. Now that the puppies have all found homes of their own, she’s ready to retire to a loving home where she can be pampered just like her puppies were. But don’t expect her to spend all her time napping. At three years old, Queen still loves to play, take long walks and keep her nose down for just the right scent. She has a beautiful red coat and a friendly, good-natured disposition, and loves to be around people. Stop by the Washington Animal Rescue League to meet Queen of Hearts.
Cooper is an 8 month old dachshund/beagle mix who’s still a little shy. He bonds easily with men, and is learning to love ladies as well. Now that he’s figuring out how great they are at giving snuggles, he’s warming right up to them. He’s nearly fully grown at about 25 pounds, and he’s housebroken and great with other dogs and kids. Since he has a lot of energy, he’ll likely do best in an active household where he’ll have lots of attention and exercise. Meet this happy boy through K-9 Lifesavers.
Guy is an approximately one-year-old, shepherd/hound-mix. He came to K-9 Lifesavers from a rural shelter in West Virginia, and once he had a few days to relax, his playful personality came out. He loves to play with his toys. He’s also great with other dogs, shares his toys very well, and is quickly learning basic commands. He’s crate trained and loves people, especially women—in fact, sometimes he can be a little grumpy about sharing the ladies with other boy dogs, but he’s great at listening to correction. Guy is just about fully grown at 70 pounds, and he’s ready to find a family. Meet him through K-9 Lifesavers.
Cashew is a very sweet, approximately two-year-old hound-mix who was surrendered to the shelter with her three puppies. All of her babies have been adopted but she still needs to find a home. Cashew’s foster family says she’s the sweetest girl. She loves cuddling, companionship, and being around her foster parents and foster dog-brother. Her house training is improving gradually and she has not exhibited any destructive behavior when left alone. Cashew can’t wait to find her own family.

Daisy Mae is an approximately two-year-old Pointer-mix. She is an energetic and affectionate girl who loves emptying her toy basket to discover what’s inside. She is an especially big fan of chew toys. Daisy Mae is content lying by your side for a rub on the belly (don’t be surprised if she paws at you for more if you stop) but also loves going for walks and runs. She is a quiet and well behaved girl that would make a great addition to any household. To find out more about Daisy Mae, please visit visit the Rural Dog Rescue website.
