Sweet little Andy recently lost his family when his owner moved into Assisted Living. Fortunately, she reached out to DDB for help, and we were able to take in Andy and his pup sibling too.
Andy is a shy little guy, but still adjusting to his sudden new life. He's housetrained, walks well on leash, and is crate trained too. He actually loves his crate, and treats it as his safe place to retreat when he feels uncertain. He needs an owner with some time and patience to work with him and push his boundaries a little to teach him to engage the world around him.
He's good with dogs, cats, and would do fine with older mature kids in his home. A calm, mature dog would be a great fit for him too. He is a pup who will flee when scared or startled. Until he settles in he should always be leashed when outside the 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.
