Currently Living at: Local foster - She needs a forever home!
With soulful brown eyes and a black velvet coat, Nettie is a showstopper. She is a sweetheart with a heart of gold, and loves to play. She loves people and other dogs and has several furry foster siblings.
Her foster mom says she will make a great running buddy, as she is a active girl. As an athlete, she has already mastered fetch and would be pleased to show you her skills. After a good run around, she settles down nicely and is a cuddly teddy bear. Nettie is also doing well on her house skills; she hasn't had any accidents in her crate.
Because of her energy, she would do best in a home without cats. She will also needs LOTS of exercise, as she is very young and active and full of energy.
Like most shelter dogs, Nettie may need a refresher on house training and crate training. We ask all of DC PAWS’ fosters to work on both house and crate training with their foster dog.
The adoption fee for this dog is $350. If you are interested in adopting Nettie, please submit an adoption application at http://dcpawsrescue.org/adoption-info/.DC PAWS Rescue does our best to provide accurate and complete information about our adoptable animals. Please note that we cannot make any guarantees about age or breed; we rely upon our rescue partners and their veterinarians to make those assessments. We also cannot make any guarantees about housebreaking and animal temperament, as animals can behave differently through transition and in different environments.
Our shelter partners provide a basic vet screening for each animal we rescue, which includes necessary vaccinations, deworming, microchipping, and spay/neuter (unless the animal is too young or otherwise deemed by the vet to not be a good candidate for surgery). Please note that this is not a comprehensive medical exam and as such, may not identify any and all medical issues, though our goal is to flag any obvious health issues through the basic vet screening. We share all medical records with adopters and flag any known issues prior to adoption finalization.
About DC PAWS Rescue
Our rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based dog and cat rescue in the DC area. We rescue from Pickens County, SC (see additional information below), as well as DC local area shelters, such as Prince Georges County, MD and Wicomico County, MD.
We partner with a local rescuer in Pickens County, SC, who saves adoptable cats and dogs from the county’s animal control facility, which lacks the resources to facilitate adoptions to the public. Without a mechanism for local adoptions, all animals not claimed within the mandated hold period are euthanized. For the animals in this rural area, rescue is really the only lifeline. Our rescue partner not only works with DC PAWS to save as many dogs and cats as possible, but she has also established a successful spay/neuter clinic in the community to decrease the number of homeless and unwanted animals over the long term.
