Dusty is counting his blessings this holiday season. This young, handsome Beagle mix was recently rescued from an online yard sale. Thankfully, a local animal advocate in WV, Jeanne Lou, was looking out for him to protect him from ending up in the wrong hands. Most folks would never think of doing harm to a dog, but there bad people who are out there looking for dogs to use as bait in fighting rings, for breeding purposes, and medical testing, especially for Beagles. Dusty is one of the lucky pups who was rescued from that uncertainty, and is now safe and living in a foster home.
This sweet pup with the gorgeous hazel eyes is being fostered with several dogs of all ages and sizes, and he does well with them all. His foster mom describes him as a laid back “Velcro dog” who loves to be around people. He's a little shy a first, but is not skittish and warms up quickly. He just needs a little time to get familiar with his new surroundings. He’s a social, go-with-the-flow kind of pup who would do great in a home with kids or other dogs.
Dusty’s foster mom has been working on his manners and he’s been an excellent student. He has done well with potty training and knows to go outside, and she just introduced the crate to him, but already trusts him to have free roam in her home. When he went to the vet, he was an excellent patient, great with the staff, and had a great time in the car. He walks well on leash too!
This handsome boy will make a great, loving addition to most families and will be coming to Northern Virginia 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.
