Adorable adoptables in northern Virginia: Angel & Chopper

Every week, I’ll be featuring adoptable pets from local rescue groups.  This week, I’m sharing adorable adoptables from the Humane Society of Fairfax County (HSFC) and A Forever Home Rescue Foundation (A Forever Home).  Ready to meet this week’s featured pups, Angel & Chopper? Here we go…

First up, , meet Angel!  This lovely lady would love to be your new best friend.  Here’s her bio from HSFC:

“Her name is perfect for her. Angel really is an Angel! She’s so sweet and loving and the mom of the year. She came in from a kill shelter with 9 puppies and gave them every second of her attention. She knows it’s time to let them go, and she’s excited about having a real home of her own. She’s a small Shepherd mixed with Husky and black and tan in color. She’s very gentle and loves to have attention. She’s only 2 yrs old and has no puppy habits other than loving everyone. Come and make Angel’s Christmas wish come true, by giving her a forever home.

Attributes: An Angel is waiting for you!”

Up next, meet Chopper!  This handsome guy is approximately 5 1/2 years old.   Here’s his bio from A Forever Home:

This is Chopper. He is a 6 year old neutered, Rottweiler (born 06/27/06) with the most beautiful face in the world! He is a very sweet, loving boy that, unfortunately, doesn’t love being around small children. My husband and I have had him since he was a puppy and he has been growling at our 2 year old daughter. Rather than keeping him away from her, we would prefer to find him a loving home where he would get all of the attention he deserves. He plays wonderfully with other dogs, has never showed any aggression towards other dogs and actually he tends to be the submissive dog when playing in groups. He loves to take walks, run and swim!!! He is a fluffy teddy bear that just wants to snuggle up to everyone!!!

If you think you have the perfect home for Chopper, visit A Forever Home for more information or email  To view the other pets available for adoption at A Forever Home, click here.

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!)

Do you have room in your home (and your heart) for one of these cute canines?  Then contact HSFC or A Forever Home.  If you know someone else who might be in the market for an awesome companion, please share this post.  Let’s find some homes for Angel and Chopper!

  1. Oh those poor people that have to get rid of Chopper although they are doing the right thing if he is growling a the little child. Hope they all find really great homes. Take care.

  2. Hi Y'all,

    With the people having to move or move to apartments it seems that so many lovely pets need homes. 🙁 So sad.

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  3. Thanks guys… I agree. So sad when pets have to leave their families and try to find new ones. 🙁

    Life Student – I have to admit, I'm kind of digging the name Chopper. 🙂
