This pretty little pup was once part of a family, but her mom died, and her family did not have the time or resources to properly care for her. Lizzie lived in a home with both kids and other dogs, and has a very sweet, gentle nature. 

This social girl is going to make an excellent companion or family dog. She went to the vet today to get her check up, and the staff said she was very laid back and friendly with everyone. She's a smart little pup who learns quickly, and will be going to her foster home tomorrow to start her journey home.

More to come as we learn about Lizzie.

FOSTER UPDATE - 5/17/17 - Lizzie's foster mom reports that she is a very affectionate, laidback dog. She's crate trained, and is being crated for a few hours every day, house trained and considers herself a lap dog. She's a little shy of people and big dogs at first, but does warm up when given a little time. She's new to leash walking, so her foster mom is starting to work with her to get her more comfortable. 

She will be coming to N. VA on 5/27

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.

About Dogs Deserve Better of Northern Virginia

About Our Rescue Group...

Dogs Deserve Better, 2003 First Place Winner of the ASPCA/Chase Pet Protector Award, is a voice for chained and penned dogs, whose sadness speaks only through the eyes. As the days become years, many of these dogs sit, lay, eat, and defecate within the same 10-foot radius. Chained by the neck, they exist without affection, exercise, social interaction, and sometimes even basic nourishment. They live as prisoners, yet long to be pets.

Chaining is not only inhumane for dogs, but is dangerous to the community. Chained dogs, unsocialized with humans, can become very territorial of their tiny space, and anyone who wanders into this space can be attacked.

Would you for one second choose to live the life of these dogs? No matter what reason is given, the bottom line is that it is NOT ok to chain a dog for life. Dogs should not have to live chained or penned as prisoners, yearning for a place in a family, craving acknowledgement, respect, and love. They DESERVE BETTER, and we as caretakers have the obligation to provide it for them.
