|Rescue Me ID: 15-07-02-00267Sam (male)|
[Read About Natural Seizure Care] This is Sam (or Sammie, occasionally Samwich or Samurai). He is scheduled to be euthanized in a week if I can't find a home for him. My family adopted him five years ago, when he was 8 months old. He had never left a cat crate in his entire life, never been outside, and had been subject to severe abuse. The abuse left him disabled. He is not a great learner. Some days he's real good at the 'sit' command though. He has panic attacks and seizures. Vets have told us he has a neurological and developmental disability, as well as epilepsy. His health and behavior are best when he gets a lot of physical contact (hugs, pets, and cuddles). He has never had an instance of aggression against any dog or other animal or person. However, yesterday, our neighbor who has been feuding with us for years approached him in our yard. Sammie nipped him, uncharacteristically. Our vet, who knows him to be far from aggressive, told us that his unusual behavior was caused by his new seizure medication, which he just started- an easily fixable problem. Nevertheless, this neighbor carries a lot of clout in our small town, and Sammie is scheduled to be euthanized. Characteristically, Sammie is small and sweet and innocent and fun and cuddly. With a regular schedule and some love, his behavior is normal and unremarkable- not incontinent, aggressive, or anything like that, but no shelters I have yet called will take him due to his epilepsy. I will transport him, and my mother is willing to donate up to a thousand dollars to have him rehomed and help cover any bills, any epilepsy treatments/vet visits that may be necessary, etc. He is up-to-date on his vaccinations. If you want to see what he looks like, here are some photos- http://imgur.com/a/2Sgia. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 15-06-24-00133Toby (male)|
Meet Toby! Toby is a handsome 5 year old American Staffordshire Terrier. He is incredibly smart and loves all people. He is great with kids and families, and loves to play fetch and tug-of-war. He loves car rides and will do just about anything for a carrot! He's a great running and hiking buddy, and loves to cuddle! He is a loyal companion and loves his people. He would do well with owner(s) who have experience with dogs and in a one-dog household. He does well on a leash with other dogs and at the dog park, and is working on hanging out with other dogs off-leash. He is goofy and will spend his days loving you, rolling over on command for his favorite treat of carrots, and curling up in crazy positions! We love Toby and he is a huge part of our family. We are moving to the Boston area, and unfortunately cannot bring him with us. He needs someone who has more time to spend with him and can give him a lot of love and attention! He is fully vaccinated, neutered, and had a full vet check-up this month. We have dog beds, food, bowls, toys, harness, winter jacket, car seat covers, treats, leash, and a collar for him. He is also micro-chipped. Please contact us if you would like more information or would like to meet Toby! We're more than willing to travel to meet the right adopters. Feel free to contact us with any questions. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 15-06-07-00478Jack (male)|
Looking for a loving family for Jack. Several months ago we moved to Washington to a small apartment. I am spending more and more time at work, and I'm finding that this is not the most optimal situation for a dog who likes to be with someone who loves him as much as he loves his mom or dad. And so, after many days of thinking the only conclusion I am coming to is I have to find a loving home for my Jack, a place where she will be loved as much as he is here but where she won't be confided to such a small space. Jack is funny and smart. He makes faces when he wants something and he loves attention. He likes to chase after a ball and his energy is infinite. (Less)

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