    Hello, my name is Riley. I was born on 26 May 2013 in a small town in Texas. I was rescued by my mommy right as I was about to be taken to the pound. Shortly after my mommy got a new job and we had to move to Virginia. I've never been away from my mom or my Sister Esim a lab mix but due to my mom's new job having long hours and living in a potentially dangerous place for me she can no longer keep my sister and I. I'm very friendly and love attention from whoever is willing to give it to me. I'm black mostly with some light brown and white areas on me. I've also been blessed with one blue and one brown eye. I'm spayed, current on my ... (Read More)vaccinations, microchipped, and I'm covered on a Banfield wellness plan at Petsmart until February 2015. I weigh about sixty pounds and love to run around my yard playing keep away from my sister or chasing sticks/balls thrown my way to fetch. I know some basic commands and while I'm not always the fastest learner I'm very eager to please so as long as you're willing to teach me I'm willing to learn (especially when given praise and treats). I'd love to go on runs with you or just lounge around and watch tv too I especially love affection and cuddling. I can't wait to love and be loved by you. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Needs a very special family. He was a feral dog, but is becoming more social everyday! He needs someone who will be patient with him as he gets acclimated to living with and being around people. I buffaloed these folks. Yep, I'm shy and careful. But, I know how to love people too. What's 'feral' anyway? What's with all the labeling? If you're not into labels, give me a call.

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-21-00403Shep (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Rescued from Georgia, clearly a victim of abuse when he first came to the shelter. His timid and insecure behavior slowly diminished and his radiant character began to shine through. Since his time at the shelter, Shep has let down his guard to express his remarkably adorable character along with gaining more and more confidence everyday. Golden coffee short haired body with a dark grey around his eyes, snout, and ears, giving him a look of an innocent soot-covered puppy. Shep is a very warm, gentle, loving individual who needs a guide and someone to lead and support him. Although a tad bit timid at first,he warms up and becomes attached to ... (Read More)anyone who gives him love. His gentle and heartfelt character would slip in perfectly with a family and children, devoted and wholehearted. He has a great smile, likes his belly scratched, and would appreciate anyone who is willing to care for him. He MUST have a home with a fenced in yard! (Less)

    I had a home. My sister and I lived together with our people. Then, when we couldn't get along, they got rid of both of us. Sorry, I'm still stunned by it all. Well, the folks at Houlagans decided that enough was enough. If we couldn't live together, we would be separated (fine by me, too). I live alone now - thank goodness. My sister could worry hell off hinges! BAM! Those doors would just come right off! No kidding. I like to live without other dogs. I hate living without people. I really miss working for a family '|.

    Kain is quite the charmer! He is calm, gentle, likes to be brushed, good in the car, good at the vet, house trained, crate trained - can we say perfect??? His story is this...He lived on his own in a drainage ditch for over 6 months. He would roam the neighborhood going to the houses he knew would feed him and retreat back to the woods. He would not let anyone close enough to catch him. Then he met someone that didn't like him - a porcupine!!!

Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Adorable little female pit cross that we have fostered and now need to find a home for. We wanted to keep her, but we have two older senior male dogs who don't appreciate her puppy playfulness! She's very loving, is good about crating, somewhat potty trained already and good on the leash. If you'd like to purchase our crate, which she's quite used to, and by the way, is a large size which she'll never outgrow, we'd ask an additional $30.

He has a one-ear-up and one-ear-down look that is distinctive and, combined with his constant smile, gives a raffish look. He is very cool and very steady. Update! Adam supervises several young dogs in The Big Pen. He has a withering glare reserved for wayward adolescents - nothing more needed. On very, very hot days he reclines in air conditioning (his favorite utility). He's a sweet, old gentleman looking for good food, clean water, grass beneath his paws, and home with doors he can open. Oh yes, he can!

    Sorsha is a German Shephard/Pit Bull mix just under 2 years old. She is a wonderful loyal companion who would be more than happy to spend the day sitting next to you on the couch or chasing laser pointers and squirrels. Truth be told I wish we could keep her but life has other plans. Sorsha has cat agression and apparently a cat allergy, and we have 3 cats. She also has a minor skin condition that sometimes requires special shampoo. My husband just had a kidney transplant and, with his medical expenses I can no longer afford to pay for Sorsha's needs as well. She has been very good for my husband's physical therapy and deserves a good ... (Read More)home. She would be ideal in a home with no other animals and no children. She's not aggressive with kids, but she is hyper around them and tends to knock little ones down. She is spayed, microchipped and only a couple months behind on her vaccinations. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-08-00196Shawnee (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Obese 

    Shawnee was boarded with me when her owner passed away unexpectedly. The estranged wife just wants to euthanise her as she cannot have dogs where she lives. I told her I would try to find her a home first. Shawnee is about Sheltie size but with hair more like a Shepherd though she has had a recent haircut. She is pretty sweet and even tempered. Gets along well with other dogs, apparently not so with cats but in what way is unknown. She seems indifferent to my chickens even when they are nearby and in the yard with her. She is fairly obedient and doesn't seem to have any major bad habits. She is very overweight. She has stayed with me ... (Read More)several times over the last couple years and is one of the better behaved dogs that has boarded with me. She picked up the routine pretty quikly. I can leave her in the fence yard for most of the day and she just hangs out and sleeps. She does snore. I will add a photo as soon as I can figure out how this site does it. (Less)

She likes other dogs and spends her days running and playing with little dogs. However, Tessa is a bit of a diva and likes her humans' attention for herself. Tessa loves to chase cats. She seems to be ... (Read More)chasing them for play and not to hurt them. Tessa might do better as the only pet in her new home. This intelligent girl already responds to the commands Sit, Lay, and Shake. Tessa needs someone who can spend time with her and provide her with daily exercise/playtime. She could be a great walking, jogging or hiking partner. Tessa has good house manners. Her new home needs to be one where she can live inside with her person or family. She can be transported to the DC metro area for an approved foster or adopter. Won't you give Tessa the loving home she needs? This Southern belle would love to take DC by storm and steal the heart of a very special Yankee. Please apply to foster or adopt Tessa today. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Addie is a 5 month old Beagle mix puppy who was owned by a hunter. We were contacted when her siblings would not allow her to eat and feeding her separately wasn't easy for them. Her health was going downhill and they wanted her to have a chance. Of course we took her in and after a few weeks, she is a healthy and happy-go-lucky girl! Addie just loves everyone and everything, especially getting attention! Because of her small build, she would be best in a home with dogs who are not very rough. Of course, she would be just as happy as the only dog in the home, where she can get all of the love and attention. She is fine with cats and ... (Read More)children. Addie has had her first deworming, her first and second puppy (DHLPP) shot, is current on flea and heartworm prevention, and is spayed and micro-chipped. She is ready to find her new home.
