    Breed: Bogle
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Beagle / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Meet sweet Nahla, an active, social Boxer/Beagle mix pup who is all about love and snuggles. Nahla is a product of divorce. Her mom had to get a second job to pay for her mortgage, so Nahla spent many hours alone and was crated for long periods of time. She wasn’t getting the time and attention she deserves as a young, vibrant pup, so her mom reached out to rescue for help. Nahla is currently being fostered with two young children (ages 4 and 10) and two other large pup playmates, and is enjoying her newfound companions. Nahla has been in her foster home for over a week now, and we’ve learned that she is great with other dogs and loves kids. She still has some jumpy puppy ways when she gets excited, and would benefit from some basic obedience training, but she walks well on a leash and is learning her crate is a safe space to rest and not a punishment. Her foster mom is working on her house training and teaching her the rules of home life, and she’s progressing nicely. While friendly, Nahla is more of a shy, submissive pup by nature, and will take a minute to engage new people. Once she knows you, her favorite thing is to lay in the bed with you and snuggle. She also enjoys playing outside and would benefit from having another dog in her home to build her confidence and learn from. She can be a little vocal, espeically when first left alone, so she's not ideal for a condo or apartment setting. Her foster mom has started taking her to work to get her more exposure and practice meeting new people before she comes ups. More to come on Nahla as she settles into her foster home. We plan to bring her to N. VA in late March/early April. We're looking for a FOSTER or ADOPTER to welcome her home. Breed: Beagle/Boxer mix Age: 14 mos old Size: 44 lbs Vetting: Up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, spayed Adoption Fee: $350 Location: Rock Hill, SC - Coming to N. VA soon - NEEDS FOSTER FOR MORE INFO OR TO ADOPT: Please go to adopt.worthydog 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 foster.worthydog and fill out an application.

    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Louie. This sweet senior boy was recently surrendered to the shelter by his family who was moving and decided not to take him along. This is so heartbreaking to see, and the shelter is especially scary for older, small dogs. Louie was terrified and cowering in his kennel, frightened by all the noises, but once he was let out to engage with the staff he perked up and his social side emerged. He enjoyed meeting the people at the shelter and a few other dogs, and is quite the spry little senior pup. One of our rescue friends from the community saw the shelter’s plea to help Louie and asked if we could take him in. Of course we can! We were able to find a foster the same day, and Louie is already settling into his foster home. The good news is that Louie appears to be in great shape, and was cared for in his prior home. He is in need of a dental, so we plan to have him fully vetted and dental work done before he makes the trip to N. VA to start his new life. More to come on this sweet boy as he settles into his new foster home. We are looking for a foster or adopter to welcome him to town. We're targeting a loving, committed home for Louie to live out his golden years. Apply today!

    Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Meet Bruce . This sweet guy recently landed in his local overcrowded animal shelter in SC because he was out wandering the streets alone, with no owner to be found. Because there are many more homeless dogs than there are available homes, Bruce would love to travel north in the hopes of finding his forever home and family. Bruce is described as friendly by the shelter staff. They report that he's a snuggly, playful guy who gets along with others. He walks well on a leash. Since he's past the puppy stage, he's a more low key than younger dogs. He mingles nicely with both dogs and humans alike. He'd love to spend some time in your lap and aims to become your best friend. Bruce enjoys life and once can't help but enjoy their time with a great guy like Bruce. Bruce does have heartworm and so would need to be treated before travelling to the DC area. We would ensure that he is treated, prior to his arrival in town. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Bruce, please apply today.

    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Fiona. This cute girl was found roaming the streets and soon found herself in an overcrowded rural shelter in SC. Because there are way too many dogs in SC that need homes, Worthy Dog would like to help rescue her but first we'd need a foster or adopter willing to give her a place to stay upon her arrival. Fiona is a sweet and loving pup who gets along with other dogs, but wouldn't mind being an only dog so that she could get all her family's attention. She's described as very nice, according to the volunteers who have spent time with her at the shelter. Fiona is sort of a "goldilocks dog". What's that? Well, she's not too hyper, not too calm, she's just right!. She walks well on a leash too. Fiona would make a great dog for anyone looking for a walking companion. She promises she'll do her best to become your loyal friend forever. Fiona would fit in well in a condo, town home, or single family home. Fiona meets other dogs calmly and with a wagging tail. She's gentle natured, approachable and a real joy to be around. If you are interested in fostering or adopting her, please do apply today. Fiona would love to become a resident of the DC area but first needs your help to do so. Apply to foster or adopt her. Coming to N. VA 3/30. Apply today!

    Piper

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Chihuahua
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Meet Piper. This young pup’s life has already been too eventful. At only a year old, she’s already had a litter of pups and been given away three times. Her last home was in a camper in rural South Carolina, where she lived with multiple dogs and kids, and didn’t get a lot of TLC. Piper is long overdue for a committed family to love her and allow her to be someone's carefree companion. Piper has been in her foster home about 3 weeks, living with other small dogs and kitties, and she’s been a good houseguest but needed a few days to trust and settle in. She was fearful of being picked up when she first arrived and would squeal when touched. She wasn’t in pain, just needed time to get her bearings. Initially, she was reserved around the other dogs but has now started playing chase in the house with one of her foster siblings, and is showing interest in toys - as every 1-year-old dog should! Piper’s foster mom describes her as a very sweet, submissive dog who always wants to be near her person. She sleeps on a pillow in her foster mom’s bed at night and likes to burrow into the covers. She’s housetrained and is let out every 3 to 4 hours with no accidents. She will go into her crate when asked, but her foster mom is retired, so she’s not often crated. Piper is true a lap dog, and her favorite spot is on the couch next to her person. She may bark when a visitor comes by, but always calms down quickly. She has not had very much exposure to leash walking, so that will be new to her. We believe Piper would do best in a calm home; other dogs and cats are fine, but she’s not the best fit for toddlers. She isn't a nipper, she’s just fearful of the sudden noises and movements that come with young children. If you have room for a very sweet "Velcro pup" in your life, Piper is your girl. She will be coming to N. VA on 3/30, so apply today to welcome her home.

    Katie - ADOP...

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!! Katie’s owner recently went into a nursing home and was no longer able to care for her. Her sister, who is also not fully well, brought Katie to our vet to be euthanized….and she’s a young, healthy pup! Thankfully, Britany, one of our caring volunteers who works there was able to intervene and get Katie into our care. This adorable little pup has some diet-related skin issues that are still healing and was infested with fleas, but she’s now on better kibble, the fleas are gone, and she just had a recent grooming. She’s looking quite sassy with her adorable ears and is feeling much better. When Katie first arrived at her foster home she was very scared and withdrawn…even a little nippy and grumbly the first few days. After a few days, she started to trust and as she realized she was safe, a more confident, affectionate Katie emerged…a pup who knows what she wants. Katie is being fostered by an awesome foster mom who also owns a doggy daycare business, so all her foster dogs get plenty of socialization with other dogs. She’s also met the resident cat and had zero reaction or interest in her, and she does fine around other dogs but she’s not a big fan of playtime. She’s more focused on finding her people to curl up in their lap and fancies herself a lap dog. She has been great with the teen boy in the home and likes to be held by people….so she’s not a nippy dog by nature. She’s still a little shy at first, but also very snuggly once she warms up. Katie is doing well with crate training and her foster mom is working on potty training, and she’s quickly showing improvement. She is adjusting to kibble and is a slow eater, so her foster mom feeds her separately so she can relax and go at her own pace. Katie only at people food in her prior home, so her foster mom has been adding check broth to her kibble to entice her. This affectionate, laid back pup will make a great companion for someone. She’d be fine living with other dogs, or as an only dog, but her focus is more on her people. Katie will be coming to N. VA on 3/9. Apply today to welcome her home.

    Breed: Italian Greyhound-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Italian Greyhound / Mixed (short coat). Welcome Lulu to the Worthy Dog Rescue family. This sweet shy girl lived outside with 8 other unaltered dogs when she was rescued. She was an afterthought to her owners; she never had any socialization outside the home, and little engagement from her family. She had multiple litters before she was rescued from that neglectful life, but is now spayed and safe in her SC foster home learning to trust people. Terrie, Lulu’s foster mom, gave her time and space to settle in when she arrived. Initially, she would shake and hide around Terrie, and it took her about 4 or 5 days to trust and start engaging. Once she trusts, she’s very connected to her person. She likes to cuddle up with Terrier on the couch, and sleeps in bed with her under the covers at night. She will put her 2 paws up on Terrie’s legs, and they will dance around the kitchen at night, and Lulu loves the attention and seeks it out. Lulu loves other dogs, and has a very submissive nature. She needs to be in a calm, patient home with other dogs to help build her confidence. She enjoys running and playing with her pup pack, and is very fast and agile. She’s also discovered her love of toys, and her foster mom calls her a toy hoarder. Lulu likes to take all the toys and hide them in her crate for safekeeping. She shares nicely when interacting with other dogs, but still likes to keep the toys in her safe place. Lulu is house trained and crate trained, and still getting used to leash walking. She’s so terrified of noises and sudden movements that her new family will need to take it slow and build her confidence on leash. A fenced yard would be ideal, but Terrie is working on her leash skills and taking her out and about on her days off to get her more exposure to the outside world. This pup is pure sweetness, she’s just scared, and needs a special foster or adopter to step up for her. We are hoping to bring her to N. VA on 3/9. Apply today to ADOPT this gentle soul.

    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Corgi / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Missy. This sweet girl came into the rescue after her family had fallen on hard times, living in a hotel room with three dogs after losing their home. They needed time to get back on their feet and wanted to make sure Missy would go to a good home through rescue. We did offer to get her current on vetting, give temporary shelter, and return her to the family once their circumstances changed, but they declined. Missy is moving on to a better life and we are happy to help her find her way home. Missy is currently being fostered with a Lab, two cats, and two teen boys, and does well with them all. She ignores the cats, but the cats feel very comfortable being around her, and she also follows the Lab around outside, though she is more people-focused than dog-focused. Missy is a dog who would do well in a home with or without other dogs. She's very good with the two boys in the home and last weekend her foster mom, Ashley, took her downtown for an event and was able to see how she interacted with strangers. She did very well greeting all the new people and other dogs. Missy’s energy level is low to moderate, but she’s also carrying a few extra pounds and would really benefit from daily walks and someone to monitor her diet. She’s laid back in the house but when her foster family gets home she is very excited and happy to see her people. She wiggles and is ready to join you on the couch or in the bed, where she prefers to be under the covers with you, not on top. She always has energy and enthusiasm to jump into the car for a road trip, and loves a car ride! Ashley describes Missy as a confident, affectionate pup. She’s already housetrained and Ashley been working on her crate training. Initially, she was resistant to the crate, but now she’s started going in when asked, though still has a few words to share. The crate is new to her so she’s learning. This sweet girl will be coming to N. VA on 3/30. Apply today to welcome her home.

    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Feist / Terrier (medium coat). Meet Arabelle. This sweet bundle of joy was found as a stray and taken to an overcrowded rural shelter in SC. Worthy Dog brought her to town here she has been patiently waiting for family of her own. Arabelle is a sweet and loving puppy has been living in a foster home with several other dogs and cats too, and she gets along great with all of them. She's an affectionate pup who can be timid when meeting new people. That doesn't last long though and before you know it, she's ready to be your new best friend. Arabelle knows how to use a dog door and enjoys spending time playing with the other dogs in her foster's backyard. We estimate she will be around 30 lbs when full grown. UPDATE 3/17/19 Because Arabelle is a little shy by nature, we feel she would do best with a dog buddy in her new home. She is crate trained and has learned to go potty outside. Their foster mom typically leaves them in the laundry room vs. crated when she’s gone for longer periods of time, and uses a pee pad for back up. She's getting to the age now where she can be weaned off of pee pads. Like all young pups, she could use some basic obedience training and some work on leash walking – Arabelle is still a bit hesitant on leash. While Arabelle is a bit more timid, she’s also the very snuggly once she gets to know you. When given a little time to get to know you she is all kisses! We think it’s time for Arabelle to take the next step in her journey home, and she is ready. I f you are interested in Fostering or Adopting Arabelle please apply today.
