Extra Information-  We want to provide as much information about our foster dogs, but sometimes it’s hard to do in the simple dog biography listed below.  CHR will list the Ideal Home section to help applicants better understand what the rescue and foster parents are looking for this particular rescue dog’s future home.  Please, take a minute to read the Ideal Home section.

Ideal Home-  Someone home part of the day or a dog walker in place.  


Meet Rascal.  This spunky little boy is a little rascal.  He loves to play and keep busy.  Every time this little boy goes on a walk you would think the world is his oyster.  He bops around like a happy little bunny, like he doesn’t have a care in the world.  When it’s cuddle time, he will come put his face next to yours for a kiss on his cheek.  He loves to be doted on. He is so sweet and loving.  He has NEVER shown a hint of growley behavior to his foster mom.  Rascal will eliminate on walks but he is also pee pad trained.  Rascal is a complete gentleman when groomed so this makes him an easy dog to groom.

  Rascal is only 10 pounds so we want to be careful if he is placed in another home.  He races around the yard chasing other dogs like the silly little bunny he is.  Rascal is housetrained but he is let outside every 4-5 hours.  Please keep this in mind if you work during the day.  ​

Rascal is allergic to a few things like certain corn so a higher end diet is ideal.  

About Caring Hearts Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Caring Hearts Rescue is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization based in Fairfax Virginia. Our volunteers rescue toy breed dogs from desperate situations including neglect, puppy mill rescue, owner surrender and euthanasia by animal shelters due to overpopulation. All of our rescued dogs stay in safe foster homes while they await their "forever home." Our rescued babies are examined and given inoculations and spayed or neutered before placement. We search for families that understand the responsibility of being a Guardian to these little guys and consider them members of the family.

Come Meet Our Pets...

CHR facilitates all the meetings with your rescued dog. Potential adopters will make arrangements with a CHR representative to meet your foster dog. We then contact the foster parent to arrange a meeting at a convenient location for the foster parent.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step is filling out a application at the following address . Click on the apply button under the dog you are interested in.

If you have pets, you will be required to provide medical records for your current pets as proof that they are up to date on vaccines, spayed or neutered and on heart worm preventative. We will contact you after this first step is completed. Thank you very much for your time!
