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 Thor.  I am 1.5 years old, neutered and up to date on vaccines. In my previous life, I was penned up in the basement and brought out to walk around a Philadelphia city block twice a day and then relegated to the basement for the rest of the time. Because of this, I am a little energetic and excited and am working with my foster family to learn some good house manners. We have been working on socialization too and I've gotten to meet more people and play with other dogs at the dog park. I am still being evaluated so look for more details on me soon. I am being fostered in Columbia, MD.
