    My name is Sugar - I'm a Hurricane Harvey survivor.

    Someone really knew what they were doing when they named me Sugar as I am a very sweet three year old mixed breed dog. I'm looking for my perfect forever family.

    I’m a true southern girl. Not long ago I was in Texas but came to Virginia after Hurricane Harvey. Right now I live in an apartment in Alexandria where I meet lots of new people every day on the street, in the hallways and in the elevator. Lots of people stop my foster "dad" to say what a pretty girl I am.

    Right now I am learning my basic commands and doing really well. I get to go on lots of long walks which is really fun. I meet lots of nice people and dogs and am told I really know my leash manners.

    My apartment is really nice and I keep it that way since I am both house trained and crate trained. I am a big girl though with a lot of energy and really want a house with a yard to play in, especially one with adults and older kids.

    Out of my home, I am full of energy but inside my favorite activity is snoozing on the couch and on my foster’s lap.

    If you take me home I promise to snooze on your lap until your legs go numb and be your companion on lots of walks.

    Chad is a Hurricane Harvey survivor. He loves having his butt scratched and is a joy to walk on a leash. He has played with my daughter and was happy to just sit in her lap and be scratched and pet. He will absolutely benefit from having training because he is very alert and enjoys waiting for direction.

    Chad just moved over to foster and is easing into homelife quite nicely. No housebreaking accidents so far! Even though we're guessing he spent much of his previous life outside, he does have good house manners. He's a big fan of his comfy dog bed -- which he likes to fill with toys. While he will hang out on permitted furniture, he understands OFF. At dinner time, he'll look at us pitifully when we all sit down, then he curls up on the floor and snoozes - no begging. First night with us -- we made up a comfy blanket nest for him next to my nightstand but he jumped right up on our bed. So, yeah, he sleeps well at night!

    Chad loves walks. He's a solid boy, built low to the ground, but a front-hook harness is great for walking him. He's great meeting other dogs on leash. We went to a dinner party last night with a similar-sized boy and the two **really** wanted to play, but the hostess wasn't comfortable with 130lbs+ of whirling dervish, so they regretfully settled down.

    Chad adores our 11-year old granddaughter. He's shown zero food aggression, so I'm thinking he should be fine with kids about 8 or 10 and up. He's not aware of his own size and thinks he's a lap dog, so he might sit on someone smaller. Chad was intensely interested in a cat on our walk, so I wouldn't be hopeful that he's cat friendly. He definitely responds to squirrels and flies, too.

    He's a mellow boy and really only barks when the leash comes out. He does fuss a little when folks leave the house. We crate him when we are at work. He's not the biggest fan and will whine initially but does seem to settle down. He's quiet when I get home from work. He would probably be fine with the run of the house, but since we're all still getting to know each other, the crate is the best plan.
