Story
Meet Izziy. This sweet young pup was abandoned by her owner in Lake Wylie, SC in April. They decided they no longer wanted her and just left her defenseless to fend for herself. Some tenants in the community started feeding her but when they were evicted and had to leave, Izzy was once again on her own. A Good Samaritan saw her lying on the deck of the empty home waiting for their return and reached out to Worthy Dog for help. This very sweet girl deserves so much better, and our team is already working hard to give that to her. Izzy is being fostered with a foster mom and dad, two small dogs, and two cats. She’s not been super playful yet but is respectful of her pack and shares food/attention well. She warmed up to her foster parents right away, and once she settles in is very much a lap dog. Izzy is  crate trained and quickly learned to use the doggy door and has had no accidents since the first day she arrived. She’s done well meeting visitors to her foster home and really loves people — it takes her a minute to warm up but once she does, she’s all about the pets.   Izzy is a young pup with a moderate energy level. She is happy little dog who will make a great companion. More updates to follow as we learn more about her.  Apply today! BREED ESTIMATE: Rat Terrier Mix GENDER: Female APPROXIMATE WEIGHT: ~  14 lbs APPROXIMATE AGE:  ~ 2 years old COAT TYPE:  short ADOPTION FEE: $425 OTHER INFO: utd on shots/spayed/microchipped FOSTER LOCATION: Alexandria, VA   FOR MORE INFO OR TO ADOPT: Please go to https://adopt.worthydog.org and complete the application. 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 https://foster.worthydog.org and fill out an application. Worthy Dog Rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue that primarily adopts to families in the DC Metro area. July 15, 2024, 1:42 pm

Story
Willy Wonka is pretty much already a spoiled rotten boy. He is doing so good. He is crate trained and loves to sleep all night after lots of walks and exercise. He is great on the leash. Of course he likes to carry his leash. He is doing good on potty training. He knows the word and is eager to please. Of course I have only fostered less than a week and it will take a little longer to be completely potty trained. He is about 11-12 weeks old and about 13 pounds. He loves to cuddle and at the same time romp and play. He seems to like everyone and all dogs. He is a little shy but warms right up. Text or Call Teresa 2767910475.

Story
Meet Clarity - Clarity is a petite puppy who is about 3 months old and weighs about 10 lbs. Clarity is a sweety and playful puppy who has also has a "chill" side. Clarity loves to chase tennis balls and when outside playing in the yard she loves to find sticks and mulch - lol. Clarity is working hard on her house and crate training. While Clarity is not in a foster home with children we feel she would do well with children ages 8 years and up. Young puppies will require an adopter who is at home a good portion of the day to continue training - no exceptions! This puppy is up to date on age-appropriate vaccines and microchipped. This puppy will need to be spayed at 6 months of age. The Adoption Fee for this puppy $400.00. The adoption fee for this dog is $400, which helps with the cost of routine vet care. This fee DOES NOT INCLUDE spay/neuter if the pup is not already spayed/neutered. If the animal you are adopting is not already spayed/neutered, you will be required to sign a contract legally obligating you to have the animal altered. A $100.00 fee will be returned to the adopter once the animal has been sterilized. We will provide information on this process during the approval process. ***You must be at least 25 years of age to adopt from CKRescue*** ***Note that puppy adoption fees most often help generate revenue that goes towards older, special needs animals that need our help. Surgeries, heartworm treatment, boarding costs and/or all things that often result in adoptable dogs and cats being left behind to be euthanized. So, adopting a puppy saves not just one life, but many! ***Please note that our first step in approving adoption applicants is to complete a vet check. Vetting of current and past pets is very important to us, thus we will be speaking with the vet(s) listed on your application to ensure that your current and previous pet(s) are kept up to date on vaccines (including rabies), spayed or neutered, maintained on appropriate monthly preventatives and examined annually by your vet.*** Our organization 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/or the general appearance of the animal. **Please visit www.caninesandkittiesrescue.org to complete our non-binding application.**

Story
Dolce is looking for a quiet home with a very special person, she is about 15 pounds, about 1-2 years old and has wonderful soulful eyes. She found herself in a high-kill shelter in Texas and would most certainly have been euthanized as she is timid and slow to feel safe.. She is always very gentle, and a wonderful companion to calm dogs. Requires a fenced yard as not yet comfortable on a leash but will do her business outside if taken out regularly. We wish we knew her story, but she is a young dog, coming out of her shell more and more each day-will jump up on the couch to sit with you, she isn't yet comfortable with initially being picked up but once she is picked up, she just melts into you, loves her scratches and snuggles. Dolce still has a way to go but looking for her hero who will give her time to become the gem that she will be. Crate trained and housebroken is taken out on a schedule. PLEASE NOTE- AN APPLICATION FROM THE WEBSITE ALMOSTHOMEDOGS.ORG IS REQUIRED prior to any meet and greet. Calling, emailing and using the “contact us” link is not useful and will delay your consideration in the adoption of the dog. Petfinder inquires are not sent to us. The adoption fee is $425, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including age appropriate vaccinations, worming, flea/tick preventative and spay/neuter. All of our dogs will be microchipped. APPLY AT ALMOSTHOMEDOGS.ORG (click on the word "Adopt" at top of page to find the dropdown menu with application) Because our dogs are in foster homes, applications are required prior to setting up any appointments.

Story
It breaks our hearts, but we need to find a new family for our beloved Autumn. We adopted her in 2017 when she was just 7 months old. Now 7 years old, she is a small breed adult dog with an all-black coat, looking like a perpetual Labrador puppy. Autumn is a gentle and loving companion. She adores snuggling and being by your side, gets along well with children and other pets, and is house-trained. She loves daily walks, playtime, and cozy evenings on the couch. Her affectionate nature makes her an ideal family pet. She's instant best friends with whomever is willing to give her belly rubs. Our lives have become too busy, with increasing travel, to give her the attention she deserves. We are seeking a loving home where she can continue to thrive and be cherished. If you can provide Autumn with a loving home, please reach out. Thank you for considering giving our sweet girl a new family.
