    Posted Breed: Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat). NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!! Meet Cookie, This little lady had a home and a family in SC. Sadly, her life turned upside down recently when her parents decided they were divorcing and there was no room in their lives for her. Worthy Dog would like to rescue her but in order to do so we need a foster or adopter willing to take her in upon her arrival. Cookie is trying to avoid having to spend even a night in an overcrowded shelter in SC so she's temporarily living in a foster home. We are trying to obtain some additional info on her but we do know that she was a "house" dog and that she had a large yard for play. She did have a dog who lived next door that she interacted with through the fence. The shelter does feel that she should do ok with other dogs. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Cookie, please do apply today. She has her bags packed and she's ready to travel to town as soon as she has someone ready to take her in upon her arrival. Apply today.

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.

    rescue
    Breed: Beagle
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Beagle (medium coat). NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!! Meet Charlie! This handsome young Beagle boy is all about snuggles and playtime. He is an active young dog who needs his daily exercise, and would do well with another young dog or kids in his home to romp and play with. He loves kids and has been around infants, toddlers, and teens. He is very sweet and gentle with them, and also very accommodating and respectful of the two senior dogs in his foster home. While Charlie is an active dog, he does enjoy hanging out on the couch and snuggling with his foster family. Charlie was surrendered by his owners who bought him from a breeder as a puppy, and were just not ready for a young, active dog. They were over-crating him, and gone 12 hours a day, which is not a good situation for any dog. Charlie has great house manners, is crate trained, potty-trained, and not destructive, so he is allowed free roam in the home. He’s being fostered at a lake house in SC, and enjoys running and playing in the sand and barking to coax the other dogs to come play with him. Charlie can be vocal when he plays, so he’s not an ideal condo/apartment dog. Charlie’s foster parents describe him as a very sweet and happy dog who loves everyone he meets. When he pushes boundaries around the home, his foster mom uses a squirt bottle for correction, and this has worked well. He also loves treats and is very smart and easy to train. This sweet Beagle boy is going to make an excellent family dog. We plan to bring him to N. VA on late April so apply today! Looking for a FOSTER or ADOPTER for Charlie.

    Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Meet unior, This little guy recently arrived at a high intake shelter in rural SC where his chances of adoption are quite slim. Sadly, there are way too many dogs in the area and not enough homes for all of them and so Junior's only chance is to find a foster or adopter willing to take him in. Worthy Dog would love to rescue him but needs a foster or adopter who can take him in upon his arrival in NoVa. Junior is described by shelter staff as a little timid when first meeting new people but he does get along with others. They report he will make a good companion for some lucky person. He is reported to enjoy puppies and is a good mentor for the less confident ones. He is good at teaching them appropriate dog behaviors. He is not yet housetrained and so an owner who is willing to work with him diligently on this important skill is needed. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Junior, please do apply today. He has his bags packed and he's ready to travel to town now. Apply today.

    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Tess has been with her owner through thick and thin over many years. At one point they even lived in a car until a Good Samaritan stepped up to help Tess’s mom get back on her feet. It was then discovered that her mom had memory issues, and was quickly declining and unable to care for herself or for Tess. She’s now living with Alzheimer’s in a memory care facility, and Tess need to find a new home. Tess is currently living in a foster home with another dog about her size, and she’s lived with cats too. She’s a very social, roll with the punches kind of pup, and has a very sweet, gentle way about her. As a senior lady, she’s more laidback and loves to snuggle. She is crate trained and potty trained, and is probably finding peace having a consistent schedule and stability which she probably has not always had. She will bark initially if someone comes to the door to alert you, but then goes about her business, and is very friendly to meeting new people. We know Tess’s mom misses her terribly, and the best thing we can do for her is make sure her baby is well loved and cared for. Apply today to give this sweet senior pup a loving home to live out her golden years.

    Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Poppy once had a home and family of her own, but was given away to a salvage yard owner who started chaining this little nugget outside for protection. She was terrified and has zero guard dog tendencies, and this poor sweet girl went from the comfort of home, to spending nights in a junkyard van. Thankfully, the owner’s daughter knew this was not the right life for Poppy, and reached out to the local SPCA to help Poppy find a new home. For the past 6 weeks she has been staying at a doggy daycare facility, having a blast romping and playing with the other dogs, waiting for her new foster home to open up. The owner of the facility has kids and Poppy has spent a lot of time with them, and loves them. She's a very social, submissive pup who is also great with other dogs of all sizes. She’s crate trained, and house trained too. As she settles into her foster home, we will learn more about her leash and social skills, but have high expectations for this adorable girl.

    rescue
    Breed: Beagle
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Jack was found as a stray in the middle of a snow storm and was in terrible shape - starved, infected skin, ears, and feet. He had been on his own awhile, and was exhausted. He mostly slept the first week in his foster home. His foster parents did a great job nursing him back to health, and teaching him how to trust, and be part of a family. Jack looks and acts like a different dog now. Initially, he was very standoffish with his foster parents, and needed time to trust his surroundings. Now he comes to his foster parents wanting to be petted, and will lay beside them on the couch to snuggle. He now understands that people can be good. Jack is a very laid back dog. His foster mom describes him as a couch potato. He's crate trained, potty trained, great with cats and others dogs, and has become a much more confident, social dog. While he's not had a lot of leash walking practice, he walks pretty well on leash, and was great on transport day greeting all the other dogs and volunteers. FOSTER UPDATE - 4/14/18 Jack immediately adjusted to life at the Good household. Both of our cats have accepted him and with a very short "testing" time. I believe his laid-back personality and low energy were keys to that. Twice he had to use his inside voice to tell them he didn't want to be picked on and everything was smooth running after that. Neither cat finds him at all intimidating. My one cat, Turkey, especially, likes his new friend. Sophie, my granddaughter, and our resident 4 year old expert found the perfect friend in Jack. He will stay curled up beside anyone and loves getting pets from both small and big people alike. She took him for a walk without any problems, and he loves to cuddle with her. Jack has to be "helped" into the crate. If left alone in the crate while you are in the house, he will howl, but I leave him crate when I leave for an extended period and he does fine. He's housebroken, and has not had a single accident in the house. I'm letting him roam free and he sleeps with us at night. I have found he has more of a cat disposition to his daily activities...he curls up and sleeps a lot of the time and is very laid back inside the home. We are enjoying our newest addition, and I know whoever might want a little beagle, he will delight with his personality, and make a great family dog. This handsome boy is ready to start his new life. Who can resist that adorable, sweet face and winning disposition...Apply today!

Thankfully, a friend of the family reached out to Worthy Dog Rescue, and she quickly had a loving foster home ready to take her in, and was able to avoid going to a shelter or getting passed around until a solution was found. Piper has known the love of family, and it shows in her social skills. She was a little shy at first when she met her foster family, but quickly warmed up and has settled in nicely. Her foster mom, Donna, shares this update: "How we love this dog!! She is precious‚̧ She's more mellow, but is always excited when I come home from work, and always happy to see me. We haven't been on leash much yet, but she did well with a harness/leash combo when I picked her up. She prefers me over my kids, but is open to letting them pet her. She's house trained, and seems to enjoy being in her crate. She sleeps in it at night even though we invited her into our bed. I think she finds comfort there. She loves to eat, snuggle in a blanket, and sleep. She's an adorable lap dog. Just love her!" Piper will be coming to N. VA on 4/28. Apply today!
