Introducing Sherman, a charming 9-year-old cutie who weighs 66lbs. Fondly known as "the little hippo", he's a delightful furry friend seeking his dream home. This affectionate boy thrives on attention and isn't shy to give plenty of slobbery kisses, making him an ideal fit for an experienced owner who enjoys a shower of doggy love.
Sherman is a playful pooch who relishes his solo time with his toys, but he also enjoys snuggling with his trusted humans. Spending time outdoors and keeping his human company are some of his favorite activities.
Introducing Joey, a friendly 12-year-old mixed breed dog currently residing at the DCSPCA shelter. Sadly, Joey's previous owner was no longer able to provide him with the care he needed, but he's eager to find a new home to call his own.
Joey is a spunky and lively golden boy who enjoys his daily walks. He's a great companion and loves spending time with his human friends. Joey is well-behaved and knows how to walk on a leash, and he's also housetrained, which means he's ready to become part of your family without any extra training.
Weighing in at 80 pounds, Joey is a big guy with an even bigger heart. He's sure to fill your home with love and joy, and all he needs is a loving family who will appreciate his gentle nature and loving personality.
Meet adorable and energetic 4-year-old Blue Jay. This sweet 60lb girl loves nothing more than lounging on the sofa with her favorite stuffed toys, but she also has a playful side and enjoys a good game of tug with her human friends.
Blue Jay came to the shelter with her brother Charlie after their owner passed away. Despite the difficult circumstances, Blue Jay has remained a happy and loving pup. She is always eager to meet new people and make new friends, and she has quickly become a favorite among shelter staff and volunteers.
Although Blue Jay is a well-behaved dog, she would benefit from some obedience training to help her become the best companion she can be. With a little guidance from a loving PAW-rent, Blue Jay will no doubt thrive and bring endless joy to her new family.
Blue Jay has been patiently waiting for her forever home for 8 months now. She longs for a loving family who will provide her with the attention, affection, and exercise she needs to thrive. If you're looking for an energetic and loving companion, consider giving Blue Jay the chance to show you just how wonderful she can be. She will reward you with unconditional love and endless cuddles.
Introducing Charlie, the epitome of adorableness with his freckle-faced charm. This lively bundle of joy is brimming with boundless energy, seeking a home that can match his zest for life. Charlie's enthusiasm for the classic game of fetch is unparalleled, showcasing his exceptional ball-playing skills that are sure to dazzle. He's also an avid fan of tug-of-war, displaying an unwavering determination to triumph. With the guidance of our dedicated staff, Charlie has been honing his "drop it" skills and has made remarkable progress.
Squeaky toys hold a special place in Charlie's heart, and he thrives on conquering challenges. His love for engaging puzzle toys like the Kong wobble proves that jocks can be brainy too! While Charlie prefers to shine as the sole fur baby in his new home, his friendly and welcoming nature ensures he delights in meeting new people and forging new friendships. Are you ready to secure a front-row seat to Charlie's exhilarating ball game? Get your ticket to an adventure-filled life with this incredible canine companion!
Meet Bolt, a lively and energetic Patterdale Terrier. This little diva is full of life and loves nothing more than being the center of attention. Bolt has a larger-than-life personality and he's sure to charm anyone who meets him.
Although Bolt enjoys playing and interacting with humans, he would need to be the only pet in the household as he likes to have all the attention for himself. Bolt loves to play games like tug-of-war and keep away, and he's always willing to work for a treat. He especially loves nose work and puzzles games and enjoys a new challenge. He would do great in an active home with plenty of opportunities for exercise, such as hiking, running and agility training.
As a headstrong breed, Bolt will need an experienced owner who can provide him with the necessary patience, understanding, and ongoing training he needs and deserves. Bolt is always eager to please and loves to learn new commands and tricks. He's been working hard with our staff to overcome his reactivity, and has made significant progress.
Meet Cooper, an energetic and enthusiastic pup seeking his next big adventure! This spunky and playful dog thrives on structure and loves training with humans. He's a quick learner and eager to please, making him an ideal candidate for extracurricular or agility classes.
Cooper would be thrilled to join you on long hikes or runs. With his strength and athleticism, he requires plenty of exercise and mental stimulation for his well-being. He would thrive in an adult-only home or with kids over 16 due to his size and strength.
Apart from exciting escapades, Cooper adores cuddling on the couch and receiving lots of love and attention. He's also open to pampering sessions and brushing. Whether you're an adventure seeker or a snuggle enthusiast, Cooper may just be your perfect companion!
Cooper is incredibly loyal and will devote himself to those who welcome him into their home. Will you let Cooper join your next expedition?
