Meet Richard. He is a tri-colored coonhound mix who is approximately 16 weeks old weighing 31lbs so he will be a big boy when he grows up. He has a mellow personality and is very happy go lucky. He settles nicely in his crate at night and during the day for his naps. He walks fairly well on a leash, but has recently discovered squirrels. He likes to have a romp, but then will settle quietly to chew on a bone. He is eager to please you and will sit for you as you put on/take off his leash. He is good about going potty outside when given the opportunity, but he is still learning about how to ask to go outside. He does great on car rides and will usually lie down and go to sleep. He is being fostered with two older dogs, age 10 and age 5, and plays very well with them. He can be dog selective when in a crowd of dogs and does better one on one meeting new dogs. He does extremely well on outings meeting new people.

He would do well in a home with older dogs that continue to mentor him in doggy manners. He would also be a great only dog. He would make a great walking or hiking companion and then be happy to take a nap on the couch with you.

Piper and Molly are a bonded pair that were surrendered to a rural open admissions animal shelter after their owner died. The two were in pretty rough shape, with badly overgrown nails, mobility constraints, and skin infections. HTAR pulled them from the shelter hoping to find a loving home here in the DC metro that was willing to take both, as a package, but we haven’t yet found that home looking for both a Big and Little. We hate to break them up — both girls are really easy members of the household and just want love and soft dog beds.

Molly is a 15-lb chihuahua mix. She’s rarely found far from Piper’s side — she seems to draw confidence from Piper’s presence. She would miss Piper more than Piper missed her, were the two separated. Molly was nearly bald when surrendered to the shelter — HTAR, her foster, and a veterinary specialist are working together to deal with deep-seated skin issues (long-term prognosis is good but she’ll likely be on a limited/hypoallergenic diet for life). As her health improved, so did her attitude. She’s a spunky little thing and just as eager to go on walks as Piper is! This is no princess — she chases critters out of the foster’s yard, even the cat that is BIGGER than her. She’s food motivated and **dances** when she sees her dinner being prepared. She sleeps on the big bed with her fosters — on TOP of the covers between their feet most of the night, but around 5:30a she likes to burrow UNDER the covers between them. Molly loves to give kisses and be petted, especially tummy rubs, but is a little sensitive about her ears and may not appreciate small grabby hands, so probably best with older children (she does great with the foster’s 11-yr-old granddaughter). Molly has not attended too many adoption events — the other dogs make her anxious. She’s also a little slow to warm to strangers — not atypical for some of the smaller breeds. Molly would probably do best with a Chi-experienced family who is around more than not. Like Piper, she’d prefer single-level living.

as you see fit:

Piper and Molly are a bonded pair that were surrendered to a rural open admissions animal shelter after their owner died. The two were in pretty rough shape, with badly overgrown nails, mobility constraints, and skin infections. HTAR pulled them from the shelter hoping to find a loving home here in the DC metro that was willing to take both, as a package, but we haven’t yet found that home looking for both a Big and Little. We hate to break them up — both girls are really easy members of the household and just want love and soft dog beds.

Piper is a 75-lb terrier mix who LOOOOOOVES people of all sizes. Don’t let her deep baritone fool you — she’s a total lovebug. She maneuvers her head to be petted and will grumble and vocalize when you stop. She also loves to go on walks — stairs are tough (she’d prefer single-level living) but leisurely neighborhood and beach walks are her thing. She’s done very well meeting dogs at our adoption events, so could probably be integrated into a home with other mellow dogs (shhhh … don’t tell Molly). She likes to lounge on low-slung couches, if permitted, and sleeps on a dog bed on the floor next to the foster at night. On workdays the two are confined to a large airy laundry room with lots of bedding — but given her impeccable house manners, she’s probably do just fine with the run of the house. She’s a low maintenance sweetheart who would fit into many types of households.

The girls are really easy members of the household and just want love and soft dog beds.
