Meet Chris. He's a sweet and loving guy who is currently living in a foster home in SC. He spent over a year living in an outdoor kennel before he was rescued by a good Samaritan who wanted to give him a better chance in life. He's blossomed into a true gem who is a wonderfully personable, expressive dog who is JOYFUL. He is happy and sweet and loving and playful and great with dogs, kids, cats and people.. He's housetrained and one bundle of energy. Please give him a chance by volunteering to foster or adopt this sweet boy. He promises that he'll try his best to make your life one big fairy tale.
Chris apparently sustained an eye injury early in life which left him blind in one eye, which was recently removed. That doesn't slow him down though. He was also recently treated for heartworm. Please consider giving Chris a chance by volunteering to foster or adopt him. He's got his bags packed and is ready to travel to the DC area if only a foster or adopter willing to take him in upon his arrival can be found 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.
