(Read More)girl doesn't know how she ended up in a scary shelter but she can't wait to find her forvever home! Kayla is a very playful and energetic girl so she will need plenty of exercise and playtime each day to be a happy and healthy pup. She would love to go on long walks, hikes and regular trips to the dog park. After she's tuckered out, Kayla loves curling up for a nice nap and belly rub. Kayla can't wait to go to obedience training with her new family so that she can bond with her people and become her very best self! Kayla is good with other dogs so she'd be a great addition to an existing pack or happy to soak up all the attention as an only dog.

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.

Name: Marlowe Breed: terrier mix Approximate Age: 1 year old Approximate Weight: 35 lbs Currently Living at: Overcrowded rural shelter -- Marlowe needs a forever home ASAP!! Meet Marlow!

She even stole some landscaping during our photo shoot, everything can be a toy! Beautiful girl with ... (Read More)great freckles. Marlowe says...Hi there, everyone! They call me Marlowe, and they say that I'm just the cutest, friendliest girl! Do you have room in your heart and home for a pup like me? I have a gorgeous, smooth, shiny white and tan coat with a funny patch over my eye. My fur is so soft that people love to pet me. I weigh about 35 pounds, which makes me a perfect size for an apartment, house or condo!! They say I am probably a terrier mix'|all I know is that I'm a happy pup and I love to play, get lots of pets, and give lots of doggie kisses! Read below for more info on Marlowe, and email sheilam@luckydoganimalrescue.org ASAP if you are interested in her! Marlowe says: I don't know why, but somehow I ended up in this scary shelter and I need to get out of here! The shelter says that I am of their absolute favorites, and they really hope someone will step up to help me very SOON so that my life has a happy ending. I don't know why the people I loved left me, but I hope there is someone else out there to see how sweet I am. I just want a new 'pack' to take good care of me and take long walks to explore my new home! After a long walk, hike or dog park visit, I'd love to snuggle up by you while you sip a warm mug of cocoa as we snuggle and stay warm inside. I just really want to run, play, then cuddle up, nap and dream of all the adventures we'll have together. I love to discover new things! Awesome Marlowe makes friends with everyone she meets! At around 1 year old, she is past the baby puppy phase (no all-night crying or bathroom breaks every 2 hours!) but like any young dog, still needs lots and lots of exercise to stay happy and healthy. Marlowe's new person or family will need to make sure she gets lots of socialization and playtime with other dogs and people to keep up the good social skills she has already! And like all dogs we adopt out, she'll need to go to obedience classes to build a strong bond with her people, and help her become a well behaved companion or family member. Marlowe seems to love all the people she meets, and can't wait to wiggle her way into your heart and home. Like most young dogs, Marlowe may need a refresher on her house training when she gets to a new home. She will also need to go to obedience school so she can continue to be a well-socialized dog! The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter surgery.

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 boy 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.

    Young Pup Looking for his FUR-ever home! LEVI NEEDS A FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Levi Breed: Pitbull Terrier Mix Approximate Age: 1 year Approximate Weight: 50 Lbs Currently Living at: A cold and scary shelter in South Carolina. Levi is looking forward to traveling to DC to find his FUR-ever family! Hi there! My name is Levi and let me tell you- I've already had quite the life. I don't quite know how this happened, but somehow I ended up in a shelter in South Carolina. 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 ... (Read More)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 blue coat and big floppy ears- that will do whatever you tell them to (with some proper training, that is)! Right now, I'm about 1 year old and 50 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. They are not sure how I will interact with kids for kitties 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 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!

(Read More)he not only had previously been attacked by a pack of dogs, but it's also suspected someone wounded his side with a machete. He was in such bad shape he was initially thought to be twice his age. Somehow, despite all of this, now recovered Spencer is a happy and loving dog who loves dogs and people alike - he can even live with dog savvy cats! His human friends in Puerto Rico share that is learning basic commands, has done great with housetraining, responds well to 'no', and is generally extremely obedient and friendly - they even referred to him as perfect! As a young terrier mix Spencer will need lots of stimulation and exercise - he would love trips to the dog park, long walks, hikes, runs, or maybe even a dog sport!! He would love to continue to work on his obedience skills so he can be known as the smartest pup in the neighborhood. Could you be the forever home to give Spencer the love and care he didn't get starting out in life? He promises endless love, snuggles, and kisses in return. Like most shelter dogs, Spencer 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.

    MOLLY NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Molly Breed: Am Staff/Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix Approximate Age: 3 years 8 months as of 2/2016 Approximate Weight: 50 lbs Currently Living at: Foster home in DC area! HI, I'M MOLLY! My previous owners left me at my wonderful dog sitters home and never came back, so now I'm looking for my real forever family while I stick around their house for a while. I'm learning so much already in my foster home and I get so excited to learn and play! I LOVE TOYS SO MUCH. Also I've already done place training and I know how to sit, stay, come, shake, and wait! I even have great recall and am ... (Read More)comfortable in my crate - how great is that?? I like swimming, hiking, running, fetching, jumping, and everything in between so I need an ACTIVE forever family to keep me physically and mentally exhausted every day. I live to please my humans and would love my owner to be a strong leader who can guide me in what to do. I promise we'll have so much fun!! I would especially love a job like a dog sport (agility?? fly ball?!) so I can impress you with how athletic and smart I am. At the end of the day, I really just want to snuggle up with my human(s), get some ear scratchies, and be told how much I am loved. As a bully breed a lot of people judge me by my looks and misunderstand me - I have SO MUCH love to give, all I want to do is please you and cover you in kisses...promise! Like most bully breed pups I am silly and have lots of personality to show you. Check out these videos of me (plus the one below my pictures) so you can get an idea of all the fun I love to have: Swimming: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-DsawhiKFQ&feature=youtu.be Trying to eat wind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0o73BX2xfMk&feature=youtu.be Playing with a big ball I found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTXiaXLohaQ&feature=youtu.be I currently live and get along with a cat, so I am happy to live with a feline friend! I can be a little feisty with my dog friends (especially ones with personalities just like mine) so it's probably best I am an only pup who can soak up aaaaall of your attention. I do love kids but due to some minor food guarding I'm working on, it's best I live with kids middle school age and older who can fully understand my boundaries. As a super smart and athletic pup, I'd love to continue to do training for years to come so I can be the best behaved pup on the block. If you have the time and the energy for a big love muffin like me in your life, please email my adoption coordinator! I love my fosters parents but I'd really love to be in a forever home, could it be yours?? When transitioning to a new environment, Molly 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.

    KIKI NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Kiki Breed: Terrier mix Approximate Age: 3 years Approximate Weight: 57 lbs Currently Living at: DC boarding Meet the sweetest pup around, Kiki! Kiki loves people and pups and would love nothing more than someone to cuddle, pet, and play with her for the rest of her days. At about 3 years and almost 60 lbs Ms. Kiki is full grown and out of her crazy puppy stage. While she may not need to run around ALL day anymore, as a medium energy large dog Kiki would love long walks, maybe some dog park trips, fetch, and the occasional hike or run. Afterwards she wants nothing more than to snuggle on the ... (Read More)couch or on her doggy bed for a long nap. Kiki has demonstrated good behavior around children but not lived with them yet to our knowledge. She has not yet met kitty cats, so if you have a feline furkid and want to know what she thinks just ask us! Kiki is a confident girl who would love to do some training to focus her smarts on impressing her humans. At doggy daycare she's a staff favorite and wants all the human attention she can get, so just add treats and she'll be learning tricks in no time! If you're looking for a loving pup who is out of the young dog crazies and are ready to give lots of love and treats, Kiki just may be the dog for you! Email her adoption coordinator for more info.

    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.

Name: Tomasa Breed: Terrier Mix Approximate Age: 2 years old Approximate Weight: 47lbs Currently Living at: A shelter in Puerto Rico. Tomasa will be making her way up to the DC area soon to look for her FUR-ever home! Name: Gracie Breed: Bull Terrier Mix Approximate Age: 2.5 years old Approximate Weight: 45lbs Currently Living at: DC foster! Hola! My name is Tomasa and let me tell you- I've already had quite the life. I don't quite know how this happened, but somehow I ended up tied to the front of a scary place called a ... (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.

    PURVIS NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! If you are viewing Purvis' bio on Petfinder, please click below for more information! Name: Purvis Breed: Lab Mix Approximate Age: 2 years old Approximate Weight: 60 lbs Currently Living at: Foster. Purvis needs a forever home! Purvis is a sweet 60 pound, crate trained, goofy Lab Mix who is almost two years old (in November!). He is very playful, active and has a curious personality and will need mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis. Playing with other dogs is his favorite thing to do. Whether it's out in public, a dog park or a doggy daycare he loves all dogs. Sometimes he needs a slow ... (Read More)introduction to puppies because he is practically still a puppy himself but doesn't understand that his size and demeanor can be scary to the little ones! Most of the time after an introduction, he plays great with them (puppies). He enjoys walks, jogs, hikes, swimming, chasing soccer balls and playing in the snow! After a nice walk or playing, Purvis loves to lay on the floor or walks into his crate and chew on a bone while you relax. Sometimes he has a mind of his own when he sees a squirrel or another furry friend. Purvis knows most of the basic commands and some tricks too: - Sit - Stay - Come - Leave It - Let Go - Down - Heel - Break(Free) - Off - Away - Get Busy(Bathroom) - Crate(Bed) - Shake - Roll Over Purvis will need a committed owner to provide more training and exercise because he is a very smart and energetic dog. He will need a patient and experienced dog owner to remind him who the leader is in the family. He is intelligent, so he will learn to follow your rules quickly but he needs someone with a firm grasp of pack leadership in order to respond positively to training. Unfortunately, Purvis was not properly socialized as a puppy and is a bit shy and scared in new settings and around new people. He loves everyone but is a big scaredy cat in certain situations and would do really well living in a home that already has another dog to help Purvis learn the ropes of how to be a confident pup. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations.

Since he is still a young pup, he will need plenty of exercise. ... (Read More)Long walks or even runs will be needed and of course, he would love to make some new friends at the dogpark.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
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.

Rescue Me ID: 15-11-25-00087Mila (female)

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!!

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!
