My story

**IF YOU ARE READING THIS ON PETFINDER, PLEASE SEE THE FULL BIO AT LOVEPAWSPG.ORG**

Say hello to Thatcher! Thatcher is looking for a furever girl. He is approximately 4 years old, neutered, all vaccines up to date, and he LOVES women. 
Ideally home is one with a woman who takes care of him. A retiree, widow or divorcee would be ideal. He does not appreciate men so much, but he does like some of them, he just has to meet them first. He is currently staying in a home with a man he does like!  A busy, high traffic home wouldn’t be the right one for him. Introductions to new people must be done slowly.

He has lived with small dogs before and has done well with them.  He has done well with every dog we have seen him with.  He does well with cats, too, and does not chase. He currently has a fenced yard, and this would be ideal for him as he likes to sniff around.  He was nervous when he first arrived, and fearful of loud noises, but now that he has been with the same foster for almost 5 months he is much more confident and happy. When her grandchildren visit, he goes in her room where his crate and toys are until they leave. He is a chill dog, and a goofy little guy. He does zoomies when outside. He is low maintenance, potty-trained, does not chew on things, he likes cuddling on the couch and going for walkies. He’s currently eating Purina Pro 7 Plan chicken and rice.  Pretty much a yes man. The perfect companion, he will listen to you for hours.  We would really like him to find a forever home before the holidays! 
 

If you would like to be Thatcher’s happily ever after, please fill out our application here and email warheitistwichtig@gmail.com with any questions.

More about this rescue

LOVEPAWS was founded as an animal intake prevention program to help keep pets in homes and out of shelters. To do this, we offer various types of assistance to pet owners including our pet food pantry and our re-homing service. We help find new homes for pets whose owners cannot keep them but do not want to surrender their pet to the shelter. While our focus is on Prince George’s County, MD, we offer these services to the entire DC Metro area. Our scope and mission has grown quickly since we were founded in 2019 and we now pull dogs and cats from open-admission, high-intake shelters in MD, VA and other Southern states. This has expanded our rescue to be able to save dogs and cats of all breeds. Our expanded mission is to save the lives of abandoned dogs and cats and place them in loving and permanent homes. While we are a non-breed-specific rescue, we are a pittie-friendly rescue that has a soft spot for the pit bulls at the Prince George’s County animal shelter. They face the heartbreaking reality of the county’s pit bull ban which makes them unavailable for adoption to the public. We are committed to stepping forward whenever we can and wherever there is the greatest need. LOVEPAWS is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are an exclusively foster-based rescue with our foster network spanning MD, DC, and VA.
