Hello old chaps. I'm Walter, and I am a dapper gentleman around the age of two years old, and a golden retriever mix. I am not sure how I ended up in a shelter, but I am looking forward to putting that behind me and meeting my new family soon. I get along great with other dogs, and although I'm out of the puppy stage, I will still need lots of energy and places to stretch my legs. Do you think you can be the one to take me and treat me like a king? I hear there are lots of nice people around DC looking for a guy like me!

Like most shelter dogs, Walter 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 Kyndra at!

About Lucky Dog Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a group of highly motivated and highly dedicated volunteers. We spend countless hours making sure that wonderful dogs find loving forever homes.

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!
