Kotter's Story...
So far in my short life I’ve seen horrors you could hardly imagine. But my hopes of a better life helped me through the hard times, and my dreams were my ticket out. Amazingly enough, other than being way too thin, I’m a very healthy boy. I have half a tail that looks as though it was deliberately chopped off, but it doesn’t hurt anymore. Despite the way I was treated by my previous family, my faith in man has not faded. I’m great with other dogs, and since I was being starved to death, you can probably imagine eating is quite a passion. I’m so appreciative of a friendly face and kind words, and I have a heart that’s larger than life! I know the names will change, but my dream of having a happy life with a loving family remains. So, welcome me back, Kotter. (PLEASE NOTE: I can only be adopted in the DC Metropolitan area. There will be no exceptions to this policy.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kotter, a Aldie Flat-Coated Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Flat-Coated Retriever for sale in Aldie, or seeking a Flat-Coated Retriever dog from a breeder in Aldie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Aldie already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Aldie breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Flat-Coated Retriever breeders who help with Flat-Coated Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Aldie paves the way for another one to be saved.
