Rescue Me ID: 17-05-22-00350Thor (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Hello. I'm Thor and I am currently looking for a really good home; a home where you won't fight me or breed me neither will you mistreat me. As you can see I like to blend in with rug. I get along with my 6 sisters and my bigger brother who is a year old now. I love chasing him around the yard and playing with the rope. I loved laying in the leaves until some human came and cleaned them up - how rude? I also like playing in the yard. Oh yeah, I'm a good door bell too - I let you know when there's someone at the door. Actually I let you know when there's anything unusual happening. That's the least I can do. I have had 2 vaccinations and ... (Read More)dewormer. Are you looking for a loyal and loving family member, because my currently family won't let me just go to anyone - they've kept me so I wouldn't be put down because of my breed. I have to be in a good home where I'm loved and cared for. So what do you think, you want to adopt me or one of my siblings? (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-04-00128Goofy (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Goofy, a super adorable, fun loving, 11 month old boy. Just like his Disney namesake, he is a very happy dog & a total sweetheart. Don't you love those eyes??? Goofy just arrived in the DC area. Notes from his adoption coordinator: 'I had the pleasure of spending a couple of hours with Goofy at the adoption event this weekend. What a super love bug! I fell completely in love with his big personality. He got into a bit of mischief - tried to steal toys off of the shelf at Felix & Oscar. I had a long talk with him about how shoplifting could land him back in jail - ha! We recommend that his future owner be experienced in owning ... (Read More)big dogs. He will need either a big yard or a large space to run in because he's a young guy with a lot of energy. He also enjoys trips to the dog park. Remember - a tired pup is a good pup! He pretty much likes all other dogs...of course there are dogs that don't like him. Same as the world of humans! He's very strong and he needs someone who can handle him - physically. We recommend that he be adopted by a family with older children - 12 or older. We have come to that conclusion based on the way he plays, his youth, and his strength. Like all young dogs, he will need a decent amount of structure, exercise and training. He will bark when someone new enters the home but he's fine as soon as he realizes they're a friend. Goofy is the kind of dog who will lay down on the floor (or sofa!) with you & let you love on him. He's a good dog and we want him (& his adopters!) to be set up for success. Proper training will take Goofy from 'good' dog to GREAT! Be sure to check out his video!!! I have more pictures & videos I can send to you directly. Such an AWESOME DOG!!!' (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-31-00133Bella (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    We rescued Bella from the Humane society in March 2014. When we first got her, she was timid around people and aggressive towards other dogs. We got her training and gave her lots of love, and she is much more relaxed around other dogs and new people. Bella now loves being close to us, she loves cuddles and kisses and she solicits attention and affection from whomever we have over to the apartment. She is very smart, alert, and eager to please. The reason we need to re-home her is we had a baby and they aren't doing great together. Bella and the baby were fine until the baby became a toddler. Unfortunately, our son's movements and behavior ... (Read More)are that of a toddler - erratic and chaotic - and that puts Bella on edge. About a month ago, our son lunged at Bella and she got really close to his face and snarled at him. So, Bella needs a toddler-less and dog-less home. She would do best in a quieter area of the city or a suburb. Please let us know if you or anyone you know is interested in a new furry family member. Please see pictures of Miss Bella below! Many thanks, Elissa and Benjamin (Less)

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.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal. Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
