already spayed, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
I am already spayed, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Name: Anastasia Breed: German Shepherd Mix Approximate Age: ~4 years old Approximate Weight: ~60 lbs Personality: Sweet disposition Observations with Dogs: good Observations with Cats: very interested and would do best in a cat-free home Observations with Kids: not yet tested Currently Living at: SC boarding, but coming to DC very soon
This stunning lady is Anastasia. She has a very sweet disposition and is great with other dogs! She would be ideal for someone with an active lifestyle who would love to take her on long walks, hikes, and other adventures! She is playful and energetic, but listens.
While she doesn't seem cat aggressive, she was VERY interested when we tested her with cats. As such, she would do best in a home without cats.
Like most shelter dogs, Anastasia may need a refresher on housetraining and crate training (our SC rescuer reports she has not been having accidents in her kennel run, though we cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken). We ask all of DC PAWS’ fosters to work on both house and crate training with their foster dog.
If you are interested in adopting Anastasia, please submit an adoption application at http://dcpawsrescue.org/adoption-application/.<p> If you are interested in adopting, please submit an adoption application at <a href="http://dcpawsrescue.org/adoption-info/">http://dcpawsrescue.org/adoption-info/</a></p>
<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 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. <br/> To learn more about sponsorship, please visit:<a href="http://dcpawsrescue.org/donate/">http://dcpawsrescue.org/donate/</a></p>
