Hi there!
My name is Sable and let me tell you- I’ve already had quite the life. I don’t quite know how this happened, but somehow I ended up in a shelter with my litter of SIX puppies. There were a lot of other dogs in cages and it was loud and cold on that cement floor. Then the amazing folks at Lucky Dog came to see me and now I get to travel all the way to the DC area in hopes that someone there will want to take me home. I'm waiting every day for my chance to find someone to love, cuddle, and play with! 

So a bit about me: I've got a really beautiful and soft tri-colored coat and big floppy ears- that will do whatever you tell them to (with some proper training, that is)!  Right now, I’m about 1-2 years old and 60 lovable pounds. My age means that I am likely done growing—but no matter how big I get I’ll always think of myself as a lap dog. 

The folks at the shelter say that I do really well with other dogs and would also do ok with a dog-savvy kitty. They are not sure how I will interact with kids yet, but the folks at Lucky Dog can try to find out for you if you need to know!  

I’ve been daydreaming everyday about my new family, and I've decided I would love to go to a home with some folks that will take me on hikes, runs, and trips to the dog park to play with my canine friends. I don’t think I would be able to stop wagging my tail if I had my very own human who will give me lots of belly rubs and get me cool toys to play with. If my new family would take me to obedience classes so that I could use my smarts to learn tons of new tricks that would be amazing.  If you think I might be the right dog for you, then please let my adoptions coordinator know! I do hope to hear from you soon!

Woofs and tail wags, 


Like most shelter dogs, Sable may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained.

Sable 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.  If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Stephanie at!

About Lucky Dog Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a group of highly motivated and highly dedicated volunteers. We spend countless hours making sure that wonderful dogs find loving forever homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoption events are held each weekend. A schedule of times and locations can be found at

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process begins when you submit an adoption application either online or at an adoption event. The individual responsible for the dog you are interested in adopting - a position we call the “adoption coordinator” - will then set up a time to discuss your application over the telephone. The adoption coordinator will check your vet reference to make sure all current and past pets were kept up-to-date with their shots and medical care. The adoption coordinator will also set up a home visit with one of our trained volunteers. That individual will come to your home to ensure that it is a safe environment, to confirm that everyone in the home is on board with adopting a dog, and to discuss any other questions you may have about dog adoption!
