Special adoption considerations:

Hi there! I'm Bear. And my paws just touched DC ground on Monday when my mom and I arrived from Kosovo. This is my first time being separated from my mom (Bon Bon) and right now I'm a little sad, can you bring that wag back to my tail by giving me my first own home of my very own? My foster family is really nice but it'd sure be great to have a loving home to call my own. 

I'd love to take long walks in the crisp air and see all the pretty holiday lights. And I'd love to get in some doggie obedience training to show you what a well mannered pup I can be.

So whattya say, friend, are you ready to offer a sweet guy like me my first (and hopefully only) forever home?

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

The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Tanya 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!

Come Meet Our Pets...

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!
