American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    Mila is a lovely, mature 7 year old staffie pitbull type dog. She is currently in foster care and available for adoption through the Washington Humane Society. Mila needs to be the only dog in the house, but if you have a yard, she would be the easiest and happiest dog to ever live. She is a fabulous companion and house mate, very low key in the house and happy to snooze next to you on the couch, or work on any commands you can think of, especially if you have treats for her :) Nothing startles her, not even fireworks or the mailman. The only thing she'll bark at is other pups. She doesn't play or run in the house, and keeps busy by ... (Read More)pushing her food toys around. She cannot be crated, however she has proven herself to be perfectly trustworthy. She's past her chewing days and will bypass your shoes and go for her frozen kongs and food toys, and when she's done, just make for the couch while you are away. Mila LOVES food, long walks and exploring the great outdoors. She would love to have a yard to eat grass and chase bees in. She is very gentle, great with kids and would love to go home with a family with a few human members for her to interact with. If you're looking for a loyal, low key and sweet companion, please contact me for more information. Please also share some info with me. There is a person at the other end of this email and I love this dog very much and want the best home for her. Thanks so much!! For more pics and info,check out Mila's pages! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-10-23-00073Brandi (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Brandi is a sweet dog who loves car rides. She loves to play at the park and run wild. We love her but can't afford to care for her the way she needs it. But he is a house trained sweetie who loves to sleep in my sons bed (even though I don't like) :-) I would love to see her in a loving home.

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-29-00092Cani (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Cani is a very sweet girl but she's SUPER shy with people. She gets along GREAT with my 3 dogs & loves to play with my Yorkie. Cani came from a hoarder's home where she lived with 216 other dogs. Obviously she never got the attention she deserves. Would you be willing to give this sweet girl a place in your home & your heart? She will need to go to a home with another dog - preferably one similar in size. She is living in a foster home now but she's ready to go to her fur-ever home. A phone interview & home visit will be required.

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!
