Dirk # 5131 is a 9-month-old-male, Chow mix. This young man is very sweet and is a real treat to be around. He is kennel trained and house broken. He is good around other dogs, loves to play. Doesn’t seem to mind cats but was not around them much. He loves to go out on a leash and walks very well. He has good manners, he can be a bit nippy to try to get attention and he does talk a bit. He would be best suited for an active family with no small children because his nipping to play may scare them. He weighs 46 pounds and is full grown. This pup is microchipped. We believe you can always teach an "old" dog new tricks so we highly recommend continued obedience training for this smart pup; it stimulates the dog's mind and establishes a good dog/adopter relationship. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption form, downloadable from our website: and return it per instructions. Email with questions.

About Last Chance Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Last Chance Animal Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to minimize the euthanasia of homeless pets through both adoption and providing low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter for both dogs and cats.

Last Chance Animal Rescue operates in Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia. We primarily take in cats from more than 40 high-kill shelters in five states and provide disaster-relief services for small pets.

We adopt dogs from our main rescue in Waldorf, MD and from the Potomac Yards PetSmart in Alexandria, VA every Saturday.
