Corgi Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 

    UPDATED! If Bradley had a bumper sticker, it would say 26.2 because he loves to run. If you're a runner and want a companion, this is the dog for you. Bradley was an owner surrender to us. We were worried about his current situation so we agreed to remove him from that in order to find him a better home. He's incredibly loving, kisses and snuggles and laying right next to you are how he likes to spend his time. He's housebroken and is really a sweet wonderful dog. He is likely not good with cats or tiny dogs and should be tested if you have either. He can definitely be a 2nd dog in a home if the match is good. He's up to date on Rabies and ... (Read More)has an appointment in mid-December to update the rest of the shots and have him fixed as he is still intact. The adoption fee is to offset some of those costs. (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Izzy is the sweetest. She is very fun and playful. Will run for days. Changes to my work travel frequency and some personal issues require that I find a place where she can have more attention and time for outdoor play. I would prefer she go with her brother trigger. They are very good with each other and love to play. Trigger is 9 years old and also an Aussie cattle dog. Izzy is on the left in the photo

    Nino is a very loving and submissive dog. He loves and craves lots of attention. He plays well with other animals.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Emmy is a two-three year old female APBT (or possibly Staffordshire) mix who was rescued from a local kill shelter when her time was almost up. She is a very loving girl and wants nothing more than to be with someone 24-7. She simply cannot be close enough to her people. She weighs around 62 lbs. and is a good medium sized dog. Emmy is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and current on heartworm and flea/tick prevention. She did test Heartworm positive and is being treated with the slow kill method. Emmy loves car rides and walks well on leash. She has done well with other dogs and enjoyed meeting children though she does get ... (Read More)overly excited at times (and may jump) so it would be best if her home included only older children. She has been waiting for a few months and would love a family of her own! There will be an application, adoption fee, home check, and contract. Please email if you are interested in sweet Emmy! Feel free to visit our website at snooperheroes.org for more information.

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-15-00220Molly (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Molly (affectionately known as Molly Moo!) is a young female who is just all kinds of fun. She was rescued from a local kill shelter when her time was almost up. From the marks on her neck, it was obvious that she had spent her life on a chain. She has healed though, and the marks are no longer visible. While her breed is unknown, she looks to be a mix of some type of bully breed and possibly Boxer. Molly has average-high energy and would do best with an active owner or an owner with another dog in the household. She has done well with other dogs and seems to just want to play. While our initial assessment was that this girl was about 3 ... (Read More)years old, after bringing her into rescue, we think she is probably closer to one year old. She loves riding in the car, walks, playing ball, and pretty much everything. Molly weighs in at around 50 lbs. and has a shorter/thicker build. Molly would make a great addition to a family (though her energy may be too much for small children) or would be a wonderful best friend for a single person. She is spayed, microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and ready for her forever home! Serious adopters only. There will be a home check, an adoption application, and an adoption contract. Feel free to check out our website at snooperherores.org for more information. Please email if you are interested in adopting Molly! (Less)

    Meet the Sweet Boy Named Brock! BROCK NEEDS A FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Brock Breed: Boxer/Bulldog Mix Approximate Age: 2 SEX: male Approximate Weight: 56 lbs Has Lived With: other dogs Currently Living at: Local boarding. Brock needs a foster home, or even better, a forever home! Special adoption considerations: Needs a 2nd dog. Brock is a handsome 2 year old boxer/bulldog mix. He weighs about 56 lbs and, because of his age, he's done growing. We don't know how this sweet boy ended up in a shelter but he can't wait to find his forever family! Brock will need plenty of exercise and playtime each day to be a happy and ... (Read More)healthy pup. He would love to go on long walks and regular trips to the dog park. After he's tuckered out, Brock loves curling up for a nice nap and belly rub. He can't wait to go to obedience training with his new family so that he can bond with his people and become his very best self! Brock is good with other dogs so he'd be a great addition to an existing pack or happy to soak up all the attention as an only dog. The nice folks at Lucky Dog don't know how Brock is with cats or young children but if you're interested, let us know and we can try to find out! Like most shelter dogs, Brock may need a refresher on housetraining. He is likely crate trained. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.

Staffordshire Bull Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 

    Bambi came to me when her owner left her after they moved out of my home. I have hd her for 4 months and would love to keep her but our dogs do not get along as the other dog in the house is female and dominant. Bambi is a sweetheart and loves being around people. She loves playing fetch and is very disciplined off the leash. She is good with some dogs, but not others. Bambi really has it out for one species and that is squirrels :).

    LIONA NEEDS A FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME!!! If you are viewing Liona's bio on Petfinder, please click below for more information. Name: Liona Breed: Terrier mix Approximately Age: 3 years Approximately Weight: 50 lbs Has lived with: dogs Special adoption considerations: gets along with older children, but you kids are a little too much for her Currently Living at: DC boarding Hello, my name is Liona and I'm a 55 pound, female, three-year-old terrier mix looking for my furever home. Right now I'm at a scary shelter and I'm not sure how I got here. The people are pretty nice and I have made some doggie friends, but it's really ... (Read More)cold and loud. Sometimes my friends and I talk about how great it would be to find a furever home and people who will love us furever and ever. That would be such a dream come true! I've heard that at a furever home you get a nice soft dog bed with some fun toys and some yummy treats. At a furever home you get snuggles and kisses and lots and lots of pats. Sometimes you even get to go to the dog park and on long walks to places like a beach or the mountains. It sounds too good to be true! I just can't wait! At my furever home I'll try to be the best girl I can. I'd really like to go to obedience school to learn my manners. I know it's very important to be polite and well-behaved. I want my furever people to be able to take me every where with them! I just love other dogs and people. I haven't met cats yet, but I'm willing to give it a try. Older kids are okay, but those little ones are a little too unpredictable for me! Scary! Are you willing to take a chance on me? I'll make it worth you're while, I promise! Like most shelter dogs, Liona may need a refresher on house training. She is likely crate trained. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    LEMUR NEEDS A FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Lemur Breed: boxer/shepherd mix Approximate Age: 4 months Approximate Weight: 13 lbs as of 3/17/16 Current Living: DC foster! Has Lived with: Dogs Special Adoption Considerations: Need Frequent Potty Breaks, Socialization, Commitment to Neuter by 6 Months Meet Lemur! This outgoing 10-week-old shepherd mix girl is as sweet as can be! At about 13 pounds, she is very kind, energetic and affectionate toward everyone she meets! She gets along well with dogs, but we haven't had a chance to see her interact with kids or cats yet. If you have them, let us know, and we'll find out more. Lemur ... (Read More)has a playful, active and curious personality and will need mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis. Lemur is still a puppy, and she will need a committed owner to provide training and exercise to be a well-behaved dog. Like most puppies, Lemur will need to work on her housetraining. Lemur will also need to go to obedience school so she can grow into a well-socialized dog! Just remember, I'm an active little girl, so I'll need someone keepin' an eye out for me during the day. I'm bummed to say if you work a 9-5 job outside the home, I may not be the best fit for you and if you want to adopt you'll need to provide proof of a multi-times a day dog walker to come visit me while you are gone! Due to a puppy's need for attention and frequent bathroom excursions, we do not adopt dogs under 5 months of age to homes where no one is home during the day. This means no 9-5ers, unless you commit to hiring a dog walker to come multiple times a day. Lemur is not old enough to have had all of her vaccines. It will be your responsibility, as the adopter, to ensure that the remaining puppy vaccines are given at the appropriate time. Please also keep in mind that, until your puppy is fully vaccinated, he is at greater risk for illness than an adult dog. Due to her young age, Lemur has not yet been spayed. As part of the adoption contract, it will be your responsibility, as the adopter, to ensure that this is done no later than 7/1/16. Lemur is dreaming of finding a warm and loving forever home! All she needs is a caring person or family to give her all the love and care (and treats!) she deserves! The adoption fee for this dog is $400, which includes the cost of routine vetting and transport from the shelter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Emily Jagdmann at emilyj@luckydoganimalrescue.org!

    SPOT NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: SPOT Breed: Boxer Mix Approximate Age: 1 1/2 years Approximate Weight: 50 pounds Currently Living at: DC boarding facility Has Lived with: Spot is good with most other dogs, she is ok with children over 12, we are not sure how she will do with cats. Special Adoption Considerations: Spot has demonstrated a bit of reactivity when on the leash- an adopter would need to be willing to work with her on this. She is also a VERY high energy pup that would love an adopter who is willing to take her on runs or let her play with her doggy friends at the dog park Meet sweet Spot! She is a pretty ... (Read More)1 1/2 year old boxer mix looking for her forever home. She is good with most other dogs, and good around kids. She is interested in cats, but shows no sign of aggression. She may chase to play. Spot is still a young gal, so exercise will be key. She can't wait to find the right family who can take her on long walks, or maybe even runs. She would love to make new friends at the dog park too. Of course, after a long day, snuggles and belly rubs will be a must. Is Spot the right match for your family? She sure hopes so and promises a ton of tail wags in return for some TLC. FOSTER NOTE: Spot is a bit of a puller on the leash and would definitely benefit from use of a gentle leader or harness. She LOVES to go on walks. She really likes squeaky toys and enjoys taking the fluff out, so ones with out stuffing are better for her. She sleeps comfortably in her crate at night, but I have left her for a 2-4 hours on her own in the main part of my house with no issues. She does need lots of attention and while she can settled for a few hours-she really needs to play every few hours- she's just a PUPPY with lots of energy! Looking out the window at the world is a favorite pastime. She will cry when she needs to go outside and hasn't had any accidents since the first few weeks she's been in my care. She is sweet, food motivated, and has learned several tricks while with us. We know that she will make her new family VERY happy! Like most shelter dogs, Spot may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Beautiful brown staffy mix ready for his furever family ZACH NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! If you are viewing Zach's bio on Petfinder, please click below for more information! Name: Zach Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix Approximate Age: 2 years old Approximate Weight: 50 lbs Currently Living at: Foster https://vimeo.com/99658635 What a great-looking boy! Zach is an American Staffordshire Terrier mix ready to face the world with his great, big smile and would like you to be his new mom or dad! Expect many smiles and laughs when you spend time with this gentle boy. Zach loves to play, but he would be just as happy forgetting ... (Read More)how big he is and sitting in your lap. Zach loves his doggy companions and would excel greatly in a home with at least one other dog (but it is not required as long as you continue to socialize him!). Unfortunately, he thinks cats are better for chasing than playing with, so he would do best in a home without feline friends. Zach does not realize that he weighs 50 lbs. He loves to lounge on people's laps and would be happiest if he could sleep on top of you. When his foster mom works from home, he likes to sleep happily beside her or chew on his favorite bone under her desk. He is more laid back than most staffy mixes, but he does love a game of tug-o-war every so often! He is also a strong-willed dog and would excel greatly in a home that sets boundaries and limits. An experienced owner would bring out the best qualities in Zach! Sometimes, we in the rescue community, forget the goodness in humanity when dealing with neglected dogs. Today Lucky Dog was reminded by the Ignyte Group (www.ignytegroup.co) that there are amazing people and companies still in the world. Thanks to Ignyte Group, Zach is now enrolled in training and is working to get his canine good citizen (CGC) certification! AdAdditionally, who ever adopts this special boy will have private training lessons already set up and paid for! It's apparent how much Zach is loved and any adopter willing to give Zachy a chance will be equally rewarded with donated training classes and a wonderful, special dog. Again, huge thanks to Ignyte Group for their amazing donation. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.

(Read More)'shelter'. There were a lot of other dogs in cages and it was loud and cold on that cement floor. Then the amazing folks at Lucky Dog came to see me and now I get to travel all the way to the DC area in hopes that someone there will want to take me home. I'm waiting every day for my chance to find someone to love, cuddle, and play with! So a bit about me: I've got a really beautiful and soft grey coat with a white patch on my chest! I've also got big floppy ears- that will do whatever you tell them to (with some proper training, that is)! Right now, I'm about 2 years old and 47 lovable pounds. My age means that I am likely done growing-but no matter how big I get I'll always think of myself as a lap dog. The folks at the shelter say that I do really well with other dogs and kids. They are not sure how I will interact with cats yet, but the folks at Lucky Dog can try to find out for you if you need to know! I've been daydreaming everyday about my new family, and I've decided I would love to go to a home with some folks that will take me on hikes, runs, and trips to the dog park to play with my canine friends. I don't think I would be able to stop wagging my tail if I had my very own human who will give me lots of belly rubs and get me cool toys to play with. If my new family would take me to obedience classes so that I could use my smarts to learn tons of new tricks that would be amazing. If you think I might be the right dog for you, then please let my adoptions coordinator know! I do hope to hear from you soon! Woofs and tail wags, Tomasa Like most shelter dogs, Tomasa may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire at https://luckydoganimalrescue.org/adopt/adoption-process and email it to Stephanie at StephanieR@LuckyDogAnimalRescue.org!

Woofs and tail wags, Sable Like most shelter dogs, Sable may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained. Sable has tested positive and been treated for for Heartworm disease. Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites. Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, dogs that were heartworm positive should suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative. The adoption fee for this dog is $450, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment.

Name: Mitzy Breed: Lab mix Approximate Age: 5 years Approximate Weight: 55 pounds Currently Living at: Mitzy is currently living in a D.C. foster home. Meet Mitzy! She is a Lab/American Staffordshire (AKA staffie) mix that weighs approximately 55 pounds. Mitzy has lived with older children and done wonderfully at adoption events with children under the age of 5. She's incredibly affectionate and loves to get snuggles from everyone! Since she can become overwhelmed with other dogs, so she ... (Read More)would excel best as a single pup. Sadly, Mitzy found herself in a shelter after her owner faced unfortunate circumstances and lost his house. She is aching for a second chance and would love to find a new family that will love her forever! This sweetheart sometimes forgets about her size and thinks she is a lap dog as she tries to cuddle. She is also incredibly expressive and can make you laugh with her quirky smiles! She knows how to sit and take a treat, and has quickly learned down, paw and rollover. She will do anything for a treat! She loves to play tug of war with any toy (and leash!), and especially loves sporting goods (e.g., basketball). With a lot of love and a little patience, Mitzy will be the best new addition to your family! Like most shelter dogs, Mitzy may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Citrus, Sweet Plott Hound Longing for a Special Home CITRUS NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! If you are viewing Citrus' bio on Petfinder, please click below for more information! Name: Citrus Breed: Plott Hound mix Approximate Age: 1.5 years Approximate Weight: 62 lbs. Currently Living at: Boarding facility. Please adopt Citrus! At the tender of age of 1.5 years old, Citrus found herself without a family to call her own. This beautiful lady has since been living in a rural shelter and now calls a Washington, DC boarding facility 'home'. Citrus has been described as a Plott hound mix and clearly has the instincts of a scent hound. Our ... (Read More)guess is that Citrus has a dose of mastiff in her, which we can see in her slight jowls. Her coat is a beautiful black/brown brindle, with a striking white chest. She has a tall, leggy stance, and weighing in at 62 pounds, she is a very strong girl. She is an athletic dog and loves to run and jump. She will need someone experienced with dogs to take a chance on her and show her the world is a safe, fun place! She has made a lot of friends during her shelter stay. She's impressed the staff with her pleasing personality and earned a good behavior rating. Citrus would do well in a calm, but active family. She could easily assimilate into the active lifestyle of a single adopter or couple who have the time to focus on a young dog's needs. Citrus could easily join a multi-dog home, with one or two well-trained dogs. She would do best in a home without children. Like most shelter dogs, Citrus may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in D.C.
    Dogs can make good pets in D.C. if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost D.C. Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) Dogs are red-green colorblind.
