Story
Meet Joe. This handsome pup with rich red-brown fur and light brown eyes is a reserved but playful guy who will happily run around, play with toys, and cuddle with you while you watch TV or nap. Joe was found as a stray, and was understandably nervous and fearful when he first came into his foster home. His foster family gave him a few days to decompress before fully engaging him, and after just two weeks, he is adjusting well. Joe spends a lot of time napping and sleeps well through the night, but he has bursts of energy and playfulness. When resting, he likes to hang out in his own area and comfy bed, but when his foster mom picks him up to cuddle on the couch, he happily obliges. Joe is extremely food motivated, possibly as a result of being underweight. That is a good sign for trainability, but it means that his adoptive family’s house must be carefully dog-proofed with no food left out for him to get into. He has even shown an ability to nudge open bottom cabinets, so dog proofing will be necessary. Joe is an adorable, friendly, quiet and playful dog who would fit in well with a family who is willing to invest some energy in training and playing. My Profile Age: 5 years old Weight: 14 pounds Good with kids: Unknown Good with dogs: Yes Good with cats: Unknown Fenced yard: No Suitable for townhouse and/or apartment: I could live in a townhouse or apartment, as long as I get enough exercise House trained: Mostly Crate trained: Yes Barks when left alone: No Chews inappropriate items: If it's on the floor, it's fair game. Training: Minimal Activity level: Medium Meet Me If you are interested in Joe, consider letting us know by filling out a (no-obligation) adoption application at pgspca.org. Please consult our Adoption FAQ before contacting us. Please check the adoption-show-attendees page to see if Joe will be attending the next adoption show. NOTE: We are an all volunteer group and do not operate a shelter. All of our animals are in foster homes. We are unable to place our animals outside of the Baltimore/DC area.

Story
Meet Eevee! She is a spunky little girl looking for a family to grow up with. At only 4 months old, she's still very much a puppy. She sleeps quietly through the night in her kennel and i working on being house trained. She's met several dogs and gets along with them all and she also likes the resident cats! Eevee does try to play with the cats, so a confident kitty to teach her the rules is recommended. Though small, this pup has lots of energy and loves to play! The adoption fee for this dog is $375, which helps with the cost of routine vet care. A spay/neuter deposit is required at time of adoption. **No extensions or exceptions will be made to the required spay/neuter date. Puppies require an adopter who is home a good part of the day to continue their training - no exceptions! They are up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines and preventatives and will need to be spayed/neutered at the age of 6 months. Please note, this pup's immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age and therefore, s/he is not suited for Apartment/Condo living or Town homes without a private fenced yard and will not be able to go to public places where s/he could possibly be exposed to the germs of unvaccinated dogs, such as PetSmart/PetCo and dog parks until s/he is 16 weeks old. Petconnect Rescue cannot guarantee the exact breed of any animal in our care. The breed listed is based on any background we may have been provided, and the general appearance of the animal at the time they enter our system. For more information, please email at ekerwin@petconnectrescue.org **If you're viewing this on Petfinder, please visit www.petconnectrescue.org to complete our non-binding application.**

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please fill out an Adoption Questionnaire at  https://petstablished.com/adoption_form/43315/gener.You can learn about the adoption process by visiting: http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/howtoadopt/.Dog's Name:   Ted  (TED0224LINMD)Estimated Breed:   Dachshund / Feist MIXApproximate Age:   2 yearsApproximate Weight:   < 20 lbs  Currently Living at:   FosterAdoption Fee:   $400DOG'S DESCRIPTION:  Meet Ted, a young boy with a heart full of potential. He's timid, yes, but that's only because he's yet to experience the warmth of a loving home. He's a bit on the lean side, but with the right care and nutrition, he'll soon be a healthy, happy companion. Ted's early experiences have left him in need of socialization and he will require time to learn trust and love. He was found abandoned in a wire crate, a harsh beginning for such a tender soul. But don't let his past define him. With patience and kindness, Ted will blossom. He's not just a pet, he's a testament to the power of love over adversity. Adopt Ted, and give him the chance to grow, to thrive, and to become the best friend you never knew you needed.Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training.

Story
Please contact Destiny Sibert (DestinyS@luckydoganimalrescue.org) for more information about this pet.Sweet shy boy seeking fresh start and love! RIPTIDE NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!!     Name:   Riptide      Best Guess for Breed: Basset hound mix  Best Guess for Age:  1 year as of February 2024       SEX: Male   Approximate Weight:  25 lbs as of 2/3/24; he probably could stand to lose a couple   Gets Along With:  Riptide does well with other dogs and needs to go to a home with a welcoming resident dog. We haven't seen him with cats but he can be tested. Because he is shy, we do not recommend a home with children under the age of 12.    Currently Living at:  DC area foster home   Special adoption considerations:   Because Riptide is shy, he needs to go to a home with a confident, welcoming resident dog. Due to his shy personality, we do not recommend him for a home with children under the age of 12.   Riptide is Looking For:  A new chapter with his own humans, where he gets to explore the world as a well-loved companion dog! He and his brother Wave were rescued from a hoarding situation. While they did not arrive at the shelter emaciated (Riptide probably could stand to lose a couple of pounds), they certainly haven't seen enough of the world and are, unsurprisingly, shy and scared in new environments right now. They need to split up and go off to their own homes with extra patient and loving adopters who will help show them the world at their pace, and with a welcoming resident dog who will show them how to dog.This adorable stubby legged cutie wants nothing more than to trot through the world with confidence, by his loving humans. He has a LOT of adoring gazes and tail wags and loyal companionship in him, all ready to bestow upon his humans. How about it - is that the deal you're seeking? What My Foster Says About Me:   We will update this once he spent more time with his foster. Lucky Dog cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken.  All of our dogs are working on their crate training.  TO ADOPT:      The adoption fee for this dog is $460, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please complete the Adoption Questionnaire online   at   bit.ly/adoptaluckydog  .   Lucky Dog Animal Rescue does our best to provide accurate information about the dogs we have for adoption. That said, we cannot make any guarantees about age, breed or temperament.
