Tinkerbelle was found as a stray on an Indian reservation. She had recently had a litter of puppies that were nowhere to be found, and had been abandoned. We suspect that she was bred, her puppies were taken from her and sold, and when she was no longer needed, discarded to fend for herself. Thankfully, a Good Samaritan took Tinkerbelle in and kept her safe until a rescue could be found.
Tinkerbelle is 5 to 6 years old, and very much a social dog. She’s great with dogs and cats, and has gentle, friendly nature that’s ideal for kids. This sweet pup loves everybody, adapts quickly, and will make an excellent family dog. She enjoys the company of other dogs, but is most interested in being around her people and fancies herself a lap dog.
She is crate trained, house trained, walks well on leash, and is a social pup who would be ideal for condo or more social setting. She arrived in Northern Virginia on 10/15/16 and is settling into her new foster home. More updates to come…
This cute little pup is going to be very popular, apply for her today!

You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes. If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster and want to learn more, please go to http://foster.ddbnova.org and fill out an application.
