Meet Jackson. This young handsome Lab mix is ready for bigger and better things in life. He was recently surrendered to the rescue with his brother, Casey, because their family had too many dogs and couldn’t properly care for them all. Both pups are experiencing life outside of a trailer for the first time, and everything is new to them. They are still timid around new things, but are young and will grow more confident each day in their foster homes.

Jackson is an adorable pup who quickly attaches to his person, and warms up more quickly to women. He's being fostered with another dog, and would probably do best with another dog in the home who is already settled in and can show him the ropes. He's house trained and goes easily into his crate when his foster mom has to go to work. He's only been walking on leash for about a week, but is picking it up quickly.

More to come on Jackson as we learn more about him in his foster home.

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.

Dogs Deserve Better of Northern Virginia is an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue that primarily adopts to families in the DC Metro area.

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.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the process is to complete an adoption application at http://adopt.ddbnova.org.
Secondly, we will set up a time for you to meet the dog in his or her foster home. If the visit goes well and the dog appears to be a good fit for your home, the next step is the home visit. Finally, the official adoption contract is signed and the adoption fee is paid.
