This gorgeous pup is Boris. He is a sweet husky mix who can be chatty sometimes, but that is just because he likes to sing you the song of his people! He would love a home where his people are active and can play with him and take him on fun adventures!

He plays well with other pups, but would do best in a home without cats. His foster mom describes Boris as a total lovebug who will snuggle with everyone, even strangers he has just met. He is also doing great with his housebreaking - she says he goes #1 and #2 immediately when taken outside and has even pawed at the training bells she has in her home. He loves to run, play with other dogs, and loves a good squirrel chase! His foster mom also tells us that he's shown no signs of being destructive or otherwise trying to get in to things outside of the crate. What a good boy!

Like most shelter dogs, Boris may need a refresher on housetraining and crate training. We ask all of DC PAWS’ fosters to work on both house and crate training with their foster dog.

<p>About DC PAWS Rescue</p>
<p>Our rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based dog and cat rescue in the DC area. We partner with a local rescuer in Pickens County, SC, who saves adoptable cats and dogs from the county’s animal control facility, which lacks the resources to facilitate adoptions to the public. Without a mechanism for local adoptions, all animals not claimed within the mandated hold period are euthanized. For the animals in this rural area, rescue is really the only lifeline. Our rescue partner not only works with DC PAWS to save as many dogs and cats as possible, but she has also established a successful spay/neuter clinic in the community to decrease the number of homeless and unwanted animals over the long term.</p>

<p>BE A FOSTER:</p>
<p>Fosters make it possible for DC PAWS to save and care for homeless, neglected and abandoned animals! To learn about fostering dogs or cats for DC PAWS Rescue, please contact us at:!

<p>BE A SPONSOR:</p>
</p>For any of our animals! Sponsors help us provide critical medical care, food, boarding and other support for animals facing euthanasia. Individuals who sponsor a dog or cat receive special recognition on the animal's profile.  Sponsorships can also be made in honor or memory of a loved one, and you may designate to whom DC Paws Rescue should provide notice of your gift.
