This little bundle of cuteness is quite the charmer. Gizmo was found as a stray almost four years ago, and has been living with the same owner and many other dogs ever since. His owner is a Good Samaritan who takes in strays to help them find a better life. She's become overloaded with too many dogs, and although she loves Gizmo dearly, she's making the tough decision to give him a better life.
Gizmo is a very social, active, playful pup who loves everyone he meets and is always in the middle of the action. He will make an excellent family dog, and do well in a home with kids, dogs, and cats too. He loves his toys and playing with the other dogs in his home, so he’ll make a great companion pup. His owner says he can be an escape artist, so he needs to be kept on leash or in a securely fenced yard until he settles in and knows he’s home.
This cutie pie will be coming to Northern Virginia after the holidays on 12/3, so we will know more about him soon.

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.
