Hola! My name is Petey and let me tell you- I’ve already had quite the life. I was born and raised on the streets of Puerto Rico until some wonderful rescuers saved me from long days roaming around and being very hungry. Since then, I have learned how to be a good boy and I've gotta tell ya- I REALLY like living in a home! Check out this video of me in my current foster home:!

I got to travel on the plane all the way to the DC area in hopes that someone here will want to take me home. I'm waiting every day for my chance to find someone to love, cuddle, and play with! 

So a bit about me: I've got a really beautiful and soft white coat with some brown spots just on my face! I've also got big floppy ears- that will do whatever you tell them to (with some proper training, that is)! Right now, I’m about 1.5 years old and 45 - 50 lovable pounds. My age means that I am likely done growing—but no matter how big I get I’ll always think of myself as a lap dog. 

I do really well with other dogs - as long as I am given a proper introduction. We are not sure how I will interact with kids or cats yet, but the folks at Lucky Dog can try to find out for you if you need to know!  

Woofs and tail wags, 




Petey is an extremely well mannered house guest.  He is fully house trained and has had zero accidents in the 2+ weeks that he has been living with me.  He is also crate trained and will go to his crate for bedtime, or if he is just wanting a nap.  He does not jump on the furniture or bed (although if you invited him Im sure he would), he does not chew anything that he isn't supposed to, he does not get into the trash, he does not counter surf, he does not bark very much, and he will let you know if he needs to go out. He knows basic commands, such as sit, lay down, and stay and we work on these daily.  He will even sit and stay while you fill his bowl. We are at the point that i don't crate him unless I know that I will be gone for 3+ hours. 




He does like to be outside and is pretty good at fetch, although he needs a bit more work on the 'give' part of the game.  He also does well at the dog park and will focus his time and energy to whatever balls are around more so than the other dogs. His leash manners have improved drastically and has cut down on his tendency to pull (still happens when he gets excited though).  He has also made great strides with his leash anxiety and while he has his days, most days he is able to properly meet other dogs on leash without incident.  There are definitely some tricks to this which I would be happy to share as I think this will be an ongoing thing to work on with Petey. 
Like most shelter dogs, Petey 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 Stephanie 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!
