Meet Dory on Saturday December 8, 2018 from 12-2 p.m. at:
Kriser’s
7505 Leesburg Pike, Ste 120A
Falls Church, VA 22043

Dory was an outdoor dog for awhile but is doing well in her foster home. She is extremely sweet and loving. She can be a little shy, particularly around men but she is a beautiful caring soul. She likes to be petted and is very smart and sensitive to the requests of her people. Dory is very chill and will be a great dog for anyone who wants an older girl with a little pep in her step, but who is perfectly willing to be a couch potato most the time. Dory still has a zest for life and while she may not be good at chasing squirrels anymore, she still gets excited and wants to check out the furry critters when she sees them on her walks.

Dory would do best in a household without young children. She is fine with other dogs, but her foster has noticed a tiny bit of resource guarding in terms of food with her dog, (though Dory has shown no food aggression towards people) but that is minimal and can easily be worked on. Dory does still enjoy a walk and loves to sniff and be outside.

Won’t someone give Dory a comfortable, loving home for her senior years? She will thank you and give you an abundance of love and companionship.

Griffey has a LOT of unconditional love and affection to give to the right person/family. He is used to being “spoiled” to some degree, but is certainly adaptable to many environments given his high intelligence and sweet temperament. His ideal “parent” would be one(s) who is/are able to keep him company for a fair amount of the day, or who is/are part of a household where someone can provide that – again, it’s important to note just how much Griffey values time with his human family/friends. It is also important to keep in mind that, as frisky and energetic as he can be, he is indeed 14 years of age and is approaching, if not in, the sunset of his life.

Bestie is a stunningly pretty young dog. She loves other dogs and is a quiet girl. Bestie is very gentle. Bestie is also shy and slowly learning to trust new people, She just needs a bit of TLC and patience to gain confidence and let the happy, good natured dog inside come out. Bestie will be happiest and thrive in a home with confident dog to show her the ropes.

She is was rescued from Rockbridge County. She’s a total doll — great with people and other dogs! Can you give her the home she deserves?

Missy would do best in a home that is in a more suburban area. She is very scared of the outside world and we are helping her to learn that its not such a bad place. Showing her this is much easier in a quieter neighborhood.

Missy has mad giant strides with her foster family and went from hiding in her crate all day to greeting them, playing with their other dogs, learning their routines and snuggling up for naps. We know she still has a long road ahead of her, but are so proud of the steps shes already taken.

We would definitely want her to go to an adopter who is experienced dog owner, sorry but no first time dog owners. Additionally, someone who understands the road a head is not going to be an easy one, but it will be totally worth it. Shes going to need a lot of patience to help her continue out of her shell.

Kids would be case by case, preferably older kids or kids that are well versed in dog and know that they will need to go slow and give her space. Same with dogs, she does well with other dogs that are on the relaxed side to give her space when she needs it.
