Hi!  My name is Rocky.  I was surrendered to a shelter on 5/15 by my owner due to lack of time to adequately care for me. My owner had me since was a puppy and said I am fearful around new people and do best with female dogs. I was very afraid at the shelter, but it was very crowded and there was a lot going on. I warmed up to the staff and they fell in love with me which is why they contacted NECPV to find a place where I would be happier.

I am being fostered with a family with kids and a male dog and wasn't fearful even when I first arrived but the area wasn't closed in so that might have helped. They said I did great the first day I arrived and have been getting along with their male dog. He is an easy going guy in general though. I've mostly been ignoring their cats. I'm good in a crate. By day number two, I was already very happy when any of my new foster family would come into the room. I like to jump up and lick them and am quite exuberant. I love to play and mostly play by myself. I like to run around with a toy in my mouth. I let the family take the toy from me though when they want it and let them touch my feet, ears, etc. when they want to. I love belly rubs!

Once you meet me and I warm up to you, I think you will fall in love with me too. I am being fostered in Reston, Va.

Hi!  My name is Aspen.  I am shedding, Teena brushes me, but I keep right on shedding. I really like to be fussed over. I was picked up as stray and some nice people at the shelter tried to make me happy but I was sad. I am about 2 years old and up to date on my shots. I am neutered and a very sweet fellow. I love to be part of a family. I am house broken. I love to be brushed and petted. I need a loving family to share my love with. I am somewhat shy at first but if you are kind to me I will love you forever.

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.
