Name: Elvis    Breed: Shepherd Mix

Approximate Age: 1 Year Old    SEX: Male

Approximate Weight: 55 lbs

Currently Living at: SCARY SHELTER!  Elvis needs a foster or forever home!!

HELLLLOOOOO!!!!! My name is Elvis!  I’m not sure how I found my way into the shelter but here I am!  I’m super excited about coming to DC and would love to have a home to call my own.  I’m a shep mix – I’m still just a young guy so I need a family who will help me learn all the right tricks!  I’m super smart so training will be a breeze! I’m about 55 lbs now but could probably fill out a bit more.



Elvis would love a family that will give him lots of exercise and attention. He would be a great fit for an active family. Whether it's taking long walks or runs, or going to the dog park, or playing tug of war, Elvis will give his new family lots of years of playfulness and companionship!

Elvis is good with other dogs but we don't know about kids or cats yet. Once he arrives in DC, we can have him tested if you have kids or cats in your home.

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

Elvis 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 Liz J. 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. We don't do it for money -- we do it for the joy a dog can bring to its new family; we do it for our love of animals; and we do it to save lives!

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!
