    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.

    Blanco was rescued from the streets of Puerto Rico- he was found being starved and abused on the streets, and a kind animal lover could not turn a blind eye to him. They immediately scooped him up and rushed him to the vet- where it was thought that he would have to be euthanized- his body was covered in sores, you could see every bone along his spine, and he had heartworm. It was decided to try to treat him for a few days to see if he would get any better- which he did!! After many months of intensive TLC, Blanco's wounds have healed and he finally is back to a normal weight. Someone tried to make him look scary and cut his ears off- but he is just a big mush with a kind and gentle soul. He does well with other dogs, is calm, sweet, and so forgiving despite his horrible past. He is used to being crated and is quiet inside.
    The last step for Blanco is to find a loving home- please look past his cropped ears and 'scary' image, because inside is a wonderful wonderful boy just ready to give you love!
