|Animal ID: 8049742Dixie (female)|
Dixie is an Italian Mastiff looking for a strong leader to guide her through life. In return, she'll provide loyal companionship and loads of fun. Dixie is smart and quickly learning about life in the city. She needs someone who's comfortable with a strong, curious pup on leash. Estimated to be just under 2 years old she has plenty to learn and she'll do it happily, especially if you've got a treat to offer in return! Her current foster describes her as a loyal sweetheart who is happy to relax at home during the day after a good romp.

|Rescue Me ID: 14-12-29-00456Johnny (male)|
Johnny is a wonderful family dog. He has been a great, loyal companion. However, due to some lifestyle changes, we have not been able to provide Johnny with the type of care and attention he deserves. He is even-tempered, great with our 17-month-old daughter, and generally a gentle giant. As an older dog, he sleeps a good deal, but he still has a fun energy level and loves to go on walks. He would be an amazing addition to any family. His veterinary appointments and immunizations are all up-to-date as well.

|Rescue Me ID: 14-12-29-00162Shelby (female)|
I am interested in surrendering my dog, Shelby. Unfortunately, my changing schedule no longer allows me the time or the funds to provide her with enough time outdoors. She needs a home with a yard that she can run in, and an owner that can allow more time devoted to her well being and active life. I live in DC, and unfortunately cannot offer her an outdoor space for her to run free. I have also recently accepted a new position that includes more travel than I have been doing. Shelby turned one in August, I adopted her from the Washington Humane Society in May. She is a very sweet dog, who is also very energetic and active. She loves playing with strong toys, and chewing on bones and antlers. She is about 90% house trained, and fully crate trained, though a treat never hurts when getting her into the crate. She has had only positive interactions with other dogs when I bring her to the dog park. I have attempted to surrender her to the Humane Society, and they said she was too stressed out by the environment and did not recommend me leaving her there. I am very desperate to find a good home for her, and need all of the help that I can get (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-11-30-00574Lester (male)|
Lester is a good dog overall and does well with adults who take time to be with him and play with him. He has had issues with being scared and has a biting history due to being afraid or food guarding. He gets along with other dogs, and is friendly with adults and young adults. Screams from kids frighten him. He loves to play, go for walks, anything with peanut butter, and long walks! He is house trained and very well behave - no destroying furniture, or anything. He will be great for someone retired or working from home!

|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!
