Animal ID: 7474Maria'sPotcakeSunshine (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Potcake Sunshine is a beautiful and sweet girl who was rescued as part of Operation Hurricane. She came in from Turks & Caicos and is adjusting to the fall temperatures of the DMV. Sunshine is 5 years old and a sweet, quiet and dainty. She's not an 'in your face' type of dog and is cautious in her approach (not aggressive - cautious) towards new people. Sunshine was picked up on the street and was in very sad condition when she was found. She was surviving in the bush and wouldn't have made it much longer without the saving hands of the TCSPCA. OPH is partnering with the SAVEDOG Project, the Turks & Caicos SPCA and Old Town Pet Resort to ... (Read More)assist dogs who found themselves displaced through Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Through the generosity of these two organizations, we were able to bring in these dogs and ensure they have a bright future! Old Towne Pet Resort in Springfield created a seamless transition for these pups from the shelter to their resort where the dogs are being cared for, evaluated, nurtured and prepared for their forever homes. The SAVEDOG Project provided transportation from the pups from the Turks & Caicos islands. TCSPCA provided care and vetting for every dog prior to the dogs' arrival. OPH truly believes that 'It Takes a Village' to make a difference in the lives of shelter dogs. Through this Operation Hurricane initiative, we have seen the best of our partners and could not be more proud to partner with them! This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH's heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable. Read more about heartworm disease here:https://www.heartwormsociety.org/pet-owner-resources/heartworm-basics#q12 (Less)

    PLEASE PASS ON TO ALL DOG LOVERS YOU KNOW! This sweet girl is a 6 yr old, spayed German Shepherd Shar-Pei mix named Abby. She is a very special girl. Super sweet and loving but also loves to play rough and wrestle in the floor. Her single male owner is in the military and will be going cross country and not sure when he will return. The immediate family is unable to take her because of an unfortunate situation where a family member needs 24/7 care. She has been in a foster home for the past 4 months and has been great in every way, as well as playing with young children,however has recently taken over the role as protector of the ... (Read More)wife/mother and when the two year old approaches her with the dog around her she has given a warning growl a few times. She is very Alpha but plays fine at the dog park off leash . On leash she is having some aggression issues because she is used to having land to roam and run. She knows all basic commands, is very polite and very trainable. She does not bother anything in the house when left for many hours. She loves stuffed toys. She is up-to-date on all vaccinations. would thrive best with a male owner or male and female with a firm female. Kids are fine but, due to Foster's experience maybe not small children, however owners family has many small children and has never been an issue. Small dogs are fine in the home if they are already there vs. joining the family later. Cats in the past have been ok but not tested recently. No issues with anyone coming in the house, and excited about company, but just has a protective bark at the door. Owner would prefer to avoid further foster homes and find a forever home because it is hard on the dog to move homes multiple times. Abby is a very unique dog and talks with her eyes. She is a velcro dog and loves to snuggle.Please give this beauty a forever home! Message for more details. serious inquiries only please. (Less)

She recently has started running a mile with me followed by a hike so she can smell everything. She also has started to enjoy being 'chased' in the house.

She doesn't go to the bathroom on walks with me. Sadie does NOT like a crate. I leave her out in the house while I am at work and she does GREAT! I even leave my trashcan out which I have never done before. Sadie is so deserving of the best forever home! If you think you are the one for her please apply or at least inquire about her!

He has lived inside a home before and is sure to make a loyal, loving companion for the right family. $175.00 adoption fee ($200 for puppies under 6 months old) helps us take care of all the dogs we ... (Read More)rescue. All dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm and tick borne diseases (if old enough) , microchipped and vaccinated for rabies (if old enough), distemper/parvo and bordetella. They are also treated for internal and external parasites. Many dogs also receive extensive medical care such as dentals and major surgeries.

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    This sweet baby had a rough start, she arrived in rescue with a broken leg. She has since healed from her leg injury. Fiona is a mature adult female, who is lacking trust/confidence. She has come along way. She bonds very quickly to woman, has shown some issues with men. Fiona is very well trained, knows heel, sit, stay (place), likes to play ball. She is crate trained, house trained, rides well in a car. She would do best in a home where there are no other animals along with a family who is willing to continue the work with her.

    Lucy came to me as an owner surrender from a high kill shelter out of North Carolina. She is very lovable and calm. She is sweet, good with all dogs, people and kids. She is spayed and utd on shots. She cannot be with cats. Lucy has been trained to be leash walker as she is fence jumper. She is really smart and she can jump or climb a fence as high as six feet. she has never been tried with a vinyl fence and i believe she could not get over a fence where she could not get a grip. she can get a grip on a chain link and the wooden fence had gaps that allowed her to get a toe hold. she also would be fine to be a house dog that just got ...

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    UPDATE: Cinnamon was adopted, but through no fault of her own, was returned. At her new home, she became cat savvy, and pretty much ignores them now! Cinnamon loves most anyone who will show her some affection, and will quickly 'lean in' to show her appreciation. She craves attention, likes to run and play with other dogs, has mat a cat or two, and a few children. She did well with all of the above, though the children clearly had been taught how to meet a strange dog for the first time, and the cat was pretty laid back and did not run from her. if a cat runs, it will get a VERY big, up close and personal, WOOF! This girl is STRONG, but ... (Read More)does pretty well on a leash, especially after you get away from the house. She would definitely benefit from someone who will spend some time with some basic training. You are never too old to learn. She loves to go for a ride and will definitely show her excitement if she thinks you are going to take her, or thinks you should! If you reach for her leash (or she thinks you are), she is ready to go! She is smart and knows how to 'sit at the table' before receiving her dinner. Unfortunately, her desire to be 'right next to her person' is greater than her desire to learn to 'go lay down'. Cinnamon has a prescription for Proin. She would not be described as incontinent, but does seem to have a tiny leak occasionally. She regularly goes outside to potty, but if she has a long nap, she can sometimes (not always) drip just a little. She doesn't have any issues when on her prescription. A quiet, more laid back environment would be more suitable for this sweet girl. In the evening, you might find her sprawled out on the sofa next to you, or at your feet, but either way, you can bet she will be near you. She is loving and loyal, and will bond very quickly to the one who is just right for her! She is highly food motivated and a treat for her would be to lick some yogurt from the spoon . . . okay, or to lick anything from a spoon, or your hand, or her plate! Cinnamon is good when left alone in the house, is potty-trained, has been fully-vetted and is on HW preventative. Questions concerning the adoption process should be directed to Peaceful Passings.

    Lucy is a BIG goofball. She came into the high kill shelter with her son Linus. (They can be separated) She was rescued on her kill day. She LOVES everyone and does well with other dogs with proper introduction. Seems ok with outside cats. She loves to play and loves attention. She is BIG and strong. Hasn't had much training that we can see, so someone with a little experience would fit well with her. She is very willing to please.. We estimate her around 2 years old, roughly 70lbs. She needs to fill out some, so will be bigger, probably around 100lbs. She is spay, current on all shots, heartworm negative, started on heartworm ... (Read More)preventative, and flea and tick meds. Would really make a great pet.. Her adoption fee is $175.00 (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Kuma is an approximately 3 year old female Akita mix. She is up to date on all of her shots, microchipped, heartworm negative and is spayed. She has a lot of energy to burn and would benefit from a very active home that can both physically and mentally exercise her. She is very smart and picks things up quickly. She knew a few commands when she arrived; sit, down, stay, shake, other paw and high five. Kuma is a very vocal girl; she will talk to you, she howl at the sirens, talks back to you and generally just loves the sound of her voice while she is awake. :) I suspect there is some German Shepherd in her somewhere, she is an ... (Read More)excellent protector of the home and yard and will let anyone know when she sees or hears something that may be amiss. She is ball driven and will bring the ball back to you most of the time. Kuma has perfect manners in the house, is crate trained but does not need the crate. When I have left her loose, she was found either on a dog bed or laying in her crate with its door open. Not a single thing touched that she shouldn't mess with. To adopt Kuma, I will need a personal and vet reference, there will be a home visit during the meet/greet with her and her potential family and also a contract. She loves being with her people and can be quite affectionate when she wants to be. A home with very young kids or small animals would not be ideal for her, older kids and where she would be the only pet would be her best placement. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    My name is Rex and I am a chained dog. Yep, it's every bit as bad as it sounds. Look into my soulful eyes and you can see how I dream to be part of a family like the little dogs who live at my house. You see, when I was a puppy, I lived inside, but as I grew, my caregiver decided to make me an 'outside dog.' I didn't want to be an 'outside dog,' but now, for my 3 years of living, that is the life I have led. I am an optimist, and I have made the most of my life, giving kisses to those who visit me. I waggle and show them what a good boy I can be if only I can move into a home with a family. I dream of that every minute of every day. ... (Read More)THAT DAY HAS ARRIVED. My friends at Radford Pound Pals now have 'ownership' of me and are looking for my perfect new home! They are seeking an experienced dog family who can be patient with me. I want to learn and I want to please, but I may not understand all of the rules at first. See, there are no rules on the chain except surviving. My special friend next door loves me and works on training me every day and brags on how smart I am. She thinks I am a Shepherd/Lab mix and also tells me how handsome I am. I am also neutered, current on vaccines and HW/Lyme negative. Please, if you are interested in me joining your family, write my friends at pals@psknet.com for an application. (Less)
