Every Sunday I’ll be featuring adoptable pets from local rescue groups. In particular, I’ll be sharing adorable adoptables from the Humane Society of Fairfax County (HSFC) and A Forever Home Rescue Foundation (A Forever Home).
First up, meet Belle the Beagle! This lovely Beagle/Dachshund mix is approximately 11 years old. (She looks a bit like my Bella, don’t you think? With that resemblance, she’s obviously 100% adorable.) Here’s her bio from A Forever Home:
“Belle is a sweet dog in search of friendship, love and comfort. She
tends to enjoy being a super loyal friend to mainly one person and
doesn’t want to have you out of her sight. Belle warms up quickly to
women and those who are soft spoken. Hanging out in the yard, going for
car rides, or just hanging around the house are all things Belle has a
good time doing if she is in your company. She would do well as an only
dog or as a part of a dog pack. Belle enjoys the company of her many
foster dog friends, but also craves to be the center of her loyal
friend’s attention. Belle is fully housetrained and crate trained. She
is a very smart lady dog and can do several fun tricks, including ‘What
up dog?’ (fancy shake), ‘Roll Over’, and even balance a treat on her
nose. If you think you could be Belle’s best friend and provide a
loving, calm home for Belle please send us an email and come meet her.”
A Forever Home also has a weekly adoption event at the PetCo in Chantilly. For the address and to find out more info, click here.
(If you have your eye on a specific pet, please email for information
first – not all pets will be at the weekly event. However, there are a
lot of awesome pets in need of homes, so if you’re in the neighborhood,
stop by and meet some of them!)
Next up, meet Buddy the Basset Hound! (Apparently I’m all about the alliteration today.) Isn’t he handsome? Here’s his bio from HSFC:
this adorable purebred Basset Hound. He is such a sweet boy. At 8 yrs.
he still has lots of spunk and is always ready and willing to go for
long walks whenever you are. He’s great with other dogs and loves people
of all ages. He’s housebroken, loves attention, and will be a really
good companion for someone who doesn’t want to play fetch all day and
night. Give Buddy a chance to show you he can be the best pal you’ve
Attributes: Best Friend you’ll ever have!”
