Adoption Pending!!

Hi!  My name is Bear.  I am a 2 year old Norwegian Elkhound and am friendly with men, women, children and dogs. I am very interested in cats. I came into rescue with my brother, Smoky. I am more submissive than him and am the one who will back down when we have a disagreement. I am very sweet and very willing to please. I am housebroken and am currently working on obedience training and am trying to learn not to pull when on leash. I love to run around in the yard and use some of my energy but will need a 6 foot or taller picket or stockade fence because I am able to climb over other types of fences. I am currently being fostered in Woodbridge, VA.

Females

Hi!  My name is Bella.  I am up to date on my shots and housebroken. The shelter said I was 2 or 3, but the vet that gave me my shots thinks I am probably closer to 6. I have a very nice personality and am smart and energetic. I'm showing some signs of possibly being an escape artist so at least a 5 foot fence is recommended for me. I am mostly deaf but understand hand signals. I would be best in a home without other dogs. I am being fostered in Arlington, VA.

Hi!  My name is Sunny.  I am 5 years old and I get along with the other dogs well and the cats. I have a seizure disorder, but I take medication twice a day now, and haven't had any more seizures. I feel much, much better! I am working on becoming housebroken - since I was previously very overweight, I had a hard time getting up or getting outside. I am a good weight now and like to run and play. I would do best in a house with a doggie door so that I can go out to potty when I need to go. I am being fostered in Silver Spring, MD.

Howdy! I'm Bo the Interesting Elkhound from West Virginia! Are you wondering what makes me so interesting? Allow me to tell you! I have a lot in common with the Most Interesting Man in the World. He's quite handsome and distinguished-looking and so am I (or so the ladies tell me)! He has an engaging smile, just like me! We are both featured on an Internet meme and when you walk me on a leash, and stop walking, I stop, too, and sit and look up at you! Don't you find that interesting...for a dog who has lived his life on the end of a chain?

Now I bet you want to know even more about me, right? (See, I told you I was interesting!) ;-) I'm around 7 years young and suffered for quite some time with cherry eye and a few other minor issues (I guess the man who fed me and gave me a shack of a dog house couldn't afford to take me to the vet). When he had to move into a nursing home I ended up in the pound, where I've been since January. Luckily, a very nice lady saw my photos on Facebook and even though I was looking a little rough around the edges, she saw past my blemishes and unkempt appearance and knew I had lots of potential. She sponsored my vet care so I'd be in tip-top shape and ready to go to rescue! Now my cherry eye is gone, I know that I don't have heartworms, I'm neutered and UTD on shots. Also, my vet was quite smitten with me; she couldn't say enough nice things about me! (I think she had a crush on me big time!) Isn't that interesting?

A few other things you might like to know about me are that I'm a friendly guy (kid-friendly, too!), I love car rides, haven't minded the company of the other dogs I've been around but haven't been tested with kitty cats and I have two buddies here with me at the pound, Tully and Teddy Bear.

You can see more photos of me here: Bo Photos

I'm looking for a new home and since I'm not that hard to please I won't mind if I live in the city or the country or if my new humans are a mature couple or a family with kiddos. I'd also even be willing to go stay in a rescue's foster home for awhile! See? Easy to please AND interesting--what a combo! Why don't you write and inquire about me today? My friends here will help me get transported to you so don't delay! I'm waiting to hear from you! For rescue or adoption info email: asapwva@gmail.com
