|Rescue Me ID: 14-04-22-00442Lola (female)|
Lola is approximately 1 1/2 years old. I just had all her shots done and her vet check/heartworm check/etc. So she's UTD on those (although she is not spayed). She's mostly housebroken (I leave her alone 10-12 hours a day, and she has an accident every once and a while), very athletic (she's gone on several runs with me including a 5-mile run yesterday), sleeps nicely through the night, is a real cuddlier at home, and really is a very good dog. I adopted her from a woman about 2 months ago - and she is not the right fit. She's not good with other dogs, until/unless she knows them and they are submissive or non-threatening. She's a nervous dog, I think because she wasn't socialized - so with strange dogs, she will growl and bark and become aggressive (through fear). I think in time she could overcome this - but I don't have the time to work with her. FYI - she currently lives with my other Spaniel, who is older and very passive. So she can live with another dog, but she isn't friendly with strange dogs at all. I hope you can help! (Less)

C&L are 12 year old sisters who have never been apart from each other. They weigh in at 13 & 17lbs if that matters. I find that I can no longer care for them properly and would like to find a loving home for the two of them together. Both are house broken and crate trained. Lacey is a lover and loves to lick you while Cagney is a couch potato. :-) Please let me know if you have room in your heart and home for C&L. Thank You

|Animal ID: 20130930Ace (male)|
Hi, My name is Ace! I'm a 5 yr old handsome guy! wag wag wag I love to give lots of kisses and be near my people all the time. I have a sad history that I am trying to forget. I was found wandering in a rural area with a terrible bite wound where another animal attacked me. It really hurt, and I was very scared until a nice lady gave me hope and got me to a vet where they fixed my bite wound. I was too sweet a boy to just sit in the vets kennel, so the nice lady got in touch with my foster mom at Little Paws Dachshund Rescue and she came to get me. I was very scared, but she was very gentle and sweet. She has taught me so much! I am not scared of hardwood floors or tile anymore. I can play with lots of toys all day now if I want to. wag wag wag I walk on a leash like a show dog and can even go in my crate without being too afraid. My foster mommy has loved me and taken good care of me through my heartworm treatment. Even when they took my 'nuggies' she said I was still a handsome guy! wag wag wag The nice vet says I have a stage 2 or 3 heart murmur and now that my heartworms are history, I should be good as new. I just try to have a more laid back lifestyle, which I'm told, I totally rock it! wag wag wag My foster mommy doesn't want me to know it, but I heard her talking with the vet. The vet said that I need a 'special' diet because sometimes when I do my 'business' outside it is difficult for me. He says I have something called a perianal hernia. The vet said as long as I have a good high fiber diet and my 'business' isn't too hard for me I should be okay. That must be why I've been eating Hills Science Diet Adult Lite Small Bites and sometimes a little soft food mixed in. Don't tell her I was eavesdropping. She says that isn't polite, and I promised to be a good boy. wag wag wag I really look forward to laying on the couch in a blanket with my foster mom. But she says that I deserve a home of my own where I can be the only dog or at least not more than 1 or 2 sisters to play with and snuggle when mom is busy. wag wag wag That sounds really nice and foster mommy says since I am such a loving and handsome rock star that some 'special' people are going to adopt me! wag wag wag I can hardly wait! That sounds so great to me! I will never have to be scared or hungry or get bitten ever again. AND I get rock star food, too! I'm such a 'special' boy! Are you my 'special' new family? wag wag wag Love, ACE (the 14 pound red rock star. Ace is currently being fostered in SC. But, please don't let distance stand in the way of your adoption. LPDR can work with you to have a volunteer transport to assist with transportation or refer you to a paid transport. $35 health certificate required by law if traveling over state lines. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 13-04-09-00341Inde (male)|
Black and white Belgian Sheepdog/Border Collie mix. Likes opera, especially 'Ring Cycle'. Very intelligent, attractive, high energy. Good hunter and tracker, loves to play, loves the outdoors, very housebroken, affectionate. Can be left home alone with no problems, if exercised vigorously. Needs a yard and walks several times a day to keep energy level in check. Has daily playgroup (see picture). Would do well on a farm or any place with a lot of land. Needs daily brushing to keep coat shiny. More a country dog than a city dog.

|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!
