Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Elissa Kurtz (elissak@luckydoganimalrescue.org) for more information about this pet. PURVIS NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! If you are viewing Purvis' bio on Petfinder, please click below for more information! Name: Purvis Best Guess for Breed: Lab Mix Best Guess for Age: 3 years as of 4/17/17 Approximate Weight: 60 lbs Currently Living at: In DC Area Foster Home Has Lived with: Dogs Special Adoption Considerations: Needs to live with a second dog, High Energy, Has some stranger danger issues especially around men- will need an adopter who is willing to work with him on this. Purvis can only be adopted to an experienced dog owner. Purvis is a sweet 60 pound, crate trained, goofy Lab Mix who is 3 years old. He is very playful, active and has a curious personality and will need mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis. Playing with other dogs is his favorite thing to do. Whether it's out in public, a dog park or a doggy daycare he loves all dogs. Sometimes he needs a slow introduction to puppies because he is practically still a puppy himself but doesn't understand that his size and demeanor can be scary to the little ones! Most of the time after an introduction, he plays great with them (puppies). He enjoys walks, jogs, hikes, swimming, chasing soccer balls and playing in the snow! After a nice walk or playing, Purvis loves to lay on the floor or walks into his crate and chew on a bone while you relax. Sometimes he has a mind of his own when he sees a squirrel or another furry friend. Purvis knows most of the basic commands and some tricks too: - Sit - Stay - Come - Leave It - Let Go - Down - Heel - Break(Free) - Off - Away - Get Busy(Bathroom) - Crate(Bed) - Shake - Roll Over Purvis will need a committed owner to provide more training and exercise because he is a very smart and energetic dog. He will need a patient and experienced dog owner to remind him who the leader is in the family. He is intelligent, so he will learn to follow your rules quickly but he needs someone with a firm grasp of pack leadership in order to respond positively to training. Unfortunately, Purvis was not properly socialized as a puppy and is a bit shy and scared in new settings and around new people. He loves everyone but is a big scaredy cat in certain situations and would do really well living in a home that already has another dog to help Purvis learn the ropes of how to be a confident pup. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

Happy, handsome boy looking for love Come meet Wendell and other great adoptable dogs this Sunday (APR 22) from 12-3 pm at the Rockville Petco (1507 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852)!!!!!! WENDELL NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Wendell Best Guess for Breed: Shepherd mix Best Guess for Age: 1 year, 7 months (as of 4/12/17) SEX: Male Approximate Weight: 78.4 pounds Has Lived With: Other dogs Currently Living at: DC area foster home Special adoption considerations: Wendell needs a home without kids. Temporary Foster Update: "Wendell is medium energy with a couple walks a day being enough to keep him happy. Wendell does not shed much and does not like the cold, but he does have a husky/shepherd personality. Wendell loves treats and attention so he is very trainable, but Wendell will talk back and try to convince you to see it his way if you tell him no. Wendell is very well behaved in the house, and only chews on his toys. Wendell is great with dogs, and grownups once he gets to know you. If you are interested in a dog with a strong happy personality, Wendell would like to be your partner." Meet handsome Wendell! Wendell is about one and a half years old, he is a shepherd mix with a single short coat, weighing in at 78.4 lbs and he can't wait to meet you! Wendell, though out of the crazy puppy stages, will still need PLENTY of exercise and cannot wait to learn with you in DC! He's dreaming of long walks and trips to the dog park in his future and would love to play with new toys, explore the neighborhood and even go to obedience classes to show off just how smart he is! He already knows how to sit on command and takes treats very gently from your hand. He does need help with his manners. He's counting down the minutes until he can meet your friends, go on trips, and cuddle up with you on the couch after a long day. Wendell is GREAT with other dogs, so he'd be a good addition to an existing pack or happy to soak up all the attention as an only dog. He will need to go to a home without kids. He hasn't yet met cats - let us know if you have any and we can test him out! Like most shelter dogs, Wendell may need a refresher on house training. He is likely crate trained. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.

Come meet Blacky and other great adoptable dogs this Saturday (APR 21) from 12-2 pm at the at the Pet Valu (7723 Tuckerman Lane, Potomac, MD 20854)!!!!!! BLACKY NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Blacky Best Guess for Breed: Scottie Mix Best Guess for Age: 5 yrs SEX: Male Approximate Weight: 28 lbs Has Lived With: Other dogs Currently Living at: DC area foster home Special Adoption considerations: Blacky would do best in a home without children as they may be a little too much excitement for him! FOSTER UPDATE: Blacky is feeling great and is running on all four legs again! You can really see his spunky terrier personality out on walks. He is a terrific listener and a quick study on commands. He slowly is learning to trust strangers, but he will need an adopter who is patient with him as he builds up his confidence in people! Meet Blacky! This lovely boy is a 5 year old scotty mix, weighing in at approximately 28 lbs. Blacky came here from Puerto Rico on January 20th looking for his forever home. He was living on the streets, running and chasing cars on a very busy road, when he was rescued by his foster mom just before Hurricane Maria devastated the island. His Puerto Rican foster mom says that Blacky loves treats and rubs on his belly and head. His local foster mom agrees and adds that Blacky is a little shy when he first meets you, but he warms up quickly, and once he trusts you, he will melt into you for affection. He loves to spend time outside getting to know his all new environment and is content to nap on the couch next to you in the evenings. Blacky arrived from Puerto Rico with a torn ACL needing immediate surgery. His surgery was incredibly successful and his six week post surgery xrays showed that his bone is almost completely healed. He still has a few minor exercise restrictions, but those all will be lifted as of early April. Although he's past his puppy phase, Blacky is a lively and playful, so he’ll require an active family that will provide him with plenty of exercise and playtime. He will need both mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis to keep him happy and healthy. Although Blacky gets along well with other dogs, we haven't had a chance to see him interact with cats yet. If you have them, let us know, and we'll do our best to find out! Blacky is also looking forward to attending obedience school to hone in his doggie manners and impress his new family. Like most shelter dogs, Blacky may need a refresher on housetraining. He is likely crate trained. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.

Cindy MUST go to a home with a resident dog and would do best with kids over 12. For additional video of Cindy, visit https://youtu.be/FR5LliCL9E4. Meet Cindy! This sweet little girl is looking for her forever home - is it yours? Cindy is coming to DC from Texas following the storm and would love to find a place to call her very own. Cindy is pretty shy but she comes out of her shell! Cindy would love to have some training to give her confidence. She likes other dogs and MUST go to a home with another dog. She LOVES to play in the backyard with her foster brother and sister and is even good with her feline foster sister too! Cindy is a bit timid with kids and can get scared so she can not go to a home with kids under the age of 12. At events, Cindy is really shy but once she's home, she gets brave and is a total cuddle bug. She gets really nervous outside of the house and isn't quite ready to walk on a leash... even with her foster siblings. So, she really needs backyard play! She is great in her crate and goes in right away. Like most shelter dogs, Cindy may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained. Cindy tested positive and has been treated for Heartworm disease. Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites. Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, dogs that were heartworm positive should suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative. The adoption fee for this dog is $450, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment.

If you are viewing Happy’s bio on Petfinder, please click below for more information. Name: Happy Best guess as to breed: Terrier mix Best guess as to age: 1 year SEX: Male Approximately Weight: 53 lbs Has Lived with: Dogs, kids Currently Living at: DC area boarding at https://www.ruffhousedaycamp.com/ Check out more videos of Happy at: https://youtu.be/2ij6nIkxdS8. Hi there! My name is Happy and I'm a 53 pound, male, one-year-old terrier mix looking for my forever home. My name is Happy Cow, or Vaca Feliz if you speak my native tongue. I'm a 53 pound male, two year-old terrier mix, though there may actually be some cow in my lineage (unconfirmed). I survived Hurricane Maria's 100 mph winds to make it here from Puerto Rico, and Lucky Dog Animal Rescue was the proverbial roll of paper towels tossed in my direction. The most important thing to know about me is my deep silly streak. I hope you don't mind me rolling all over your carpets, playing ball like I'm the Washington Nationals' starting shortstop, becoming your leg rest if you aren't giving me enough ear scratches, or waking you up in the morning with a gigantic slurp from my cow-sized tongue. I do it all without barking much at all, but I'm no cow-ard. I just prefer to let my actions do the talking. I'm good with kids and other larger dogs, and I greet every new friend at the door with gentle hug and a vigorous tail wag. However, you definitely don't want me co-habitating with any small dogs, cats, squirrels, or Scabbers the Pet Rat. I will do fine sleeping in a crate, but let's be honest: you'll get a lot more love from me if you let me flop all over your furniture. I promise I'll keep the shedding to a minimum. I also adore long walks in the moooooo-nlight (get it?), I'm totally chill during long car rides, and I will be a kick-butt running partner when temperatures are above 10 degrees F. All of this small talk and I haven't even told you about my appetite. See, I'm a total foodie. As in, if it's food, I'm all in! Dog food, table scraps, unattended items on the kitchen counter, and especially bananas-- the riper the better. They grow them back in PR-- it's a comfort food thing, OK? (I'll eat beef too. Weird, I know, but don't judge.) I'm also all in for non-food items: tissues, napkins, Irish Spring deodorant soap, and other items TBD. Thanks to my four stomachs, my intestines are pretty hardy. No vet trips yet! And anyway, it's like my Grandma Bessie used to say: "To err is human, but to forgive is bovine." FOSTER UPDATE: Happy's full name on his records from Puerto Rico is actually Happy Cow, and he comes to that name in Spanish (Vaca Feliz). He is very smart and knows how to sit, walk on a leash, and use his crate. He loves car rides (and is very calm in the car). He is good with kids and dogs, but definitely not cats. His personality is laid back, calm and cuddly. We've only heard him make a bark once. He is a bit nervous of loud trucks and buses, and gives chase to bicycles (other than squirrels, those are the only things that have prompted leash pulling on walks). He does have some food guarding; and is an expert counter surfer and food snatcher, if given the opportunity. He prefers to sleep in his crate. He LOVES to give hugs and rest his head against you, and really is an all around sweetheart. Like most shelter dogs, Happy may need a refresher on house training. He is likely crate trained. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and transportation to DC.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Megan Davis (megan.luckydog@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Come meet Hailey and other great adoptable dogs this Sunday (APR 22) from 12-3 pm at the Rockville Petco (1507 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852)!!!!!! HAILEY NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Hailey Best Guess for Breed: Lab mix Approximate Age: 1 year (dob Aug 2016) SEX: female Approximate Weight: 57 lbs Currently Living at: foster home Special Adoption Considerations: active, young dog, needs experienced dog owner and to be the only dog in the home Check out these videos of Hailey: https://youtu.be/LEYtaTtsbTc, https://youtu.be/iR513Nev1ag and https://youtu.be/y8mHFXcjpto. My name is Hailey, but what I really want to be called is yours and I'll bet you a truck full of milk bones that I can wiggle my way into your heart! I am looking for an experienced dog owner and need to be the only dog in the home. I am very energetic and may need more than walks, and hope I find a home where I can do lots of running and playing. I am doing well with leash training and basic commands but like any young dog will need a home with structure so I can continue to learn and show you how smart I am. Foster update: We started fostering Hailey as an emergency foster for two weeks over the holidays. She moved right in enjoying chasing birds, squirrels and tennis balls in the backyard, following me around the house, and cuddling up to watch tv. She likes to hang out in her crate when we aren’t home. We do a morning and evening walk and she is learning her leash skills. She comes along when there are chores to run and waits patiently in the car. Hailey knows sit, down, stay (most of the time), and come. She also knows to shake hands and she’s quickly learning to “drop” the toy we are playing with. She has been introduced to halt and heel on our walks. On a fun walk she is asked to “slow down” with a slight correction when she starts pulling on her leash. She does have a thing with squirrels! Most importantly we have been working on a “quiet” command when another dog is in the vicinity: sensing her alert/ anxiety and before a growl or bark, and with a “quiet,” a treat and praise and distraction. Hailey is a smart, loving dog. She is wonderful to have around the house and will be as great a companion to you as she has been to us. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting and transport from the shelter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Megan at megan.luckydog@gmail.com!

      Breed: Beagle-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Diane Pedulla (dianep@luckydoganimalrescue.org) for more information about this pet. 4-year old 20 lb. female Beagle mix MORGAN NEEDS A FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Morgan Best Guess for Breed: Beagle mix Best Guess for Age: 4 years SEX: female Approximate Weight: 20 lbs. Has Lived With: other dogs Currently Living at the shelter, Morgan needs a foster and a forever home. Special adoption considerations: May be vocal due to breed. 2018 is turning out to be a very big year for our sweet Beagle Morgan! In early January she became the proud mama of 7 puppies. And now here she is, on her way to DC to find a home and family of her own. Morgan's been pretty busy looking out for her 4 boys and 3 girls so we think now someone needs to look after her. She deserves to put her little paws up and rest in a soft dog bed. Could your home be Morgan's final stop on this journey? Beagles are known for their friendly and gentle personalities, which explains why they have long been on the list of the 10 most popular dogs. They're big enough to play with but not so big they can knock people over. They are a good match for people of all ages. Some do like to sing (howl) but others are very quiet. Beagles are very loyal so don't be surprised if Morgan wants to follow you from room to room. Beagles are energetic little dogs who can walk for miles. They are eager and willing to go all over town with you. In addition to long walks Morgan would enjoy the chance to run off-leash so plan for some visits to a dog park or other fenced-in area. Be sure not to let Morgan off-leash in an unsecured place as she may wander far before she discovers she's lost. Obedience training is a must so Morgan can learn what rules she is expected to follow. Beagles are known for being independent (some would say stubborn) so start training early. Morgan really wants to be the best dog she can but like most dogs she needs someone to teach her the ropes. Like most shelter dogs, Morgan may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained. Morgan is fine with other dogs but has not yet been tested with cats or kids. Morgan has tested positive and {been treated for} for Heartworm disease. Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites. Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, dogs that were heartworm positive should suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative. The adoption fee for this dog is $450, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment.
