DOGS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
We also have dogs with special needs. They require homes that can provide special care. Some have medical needs and some have behavior issues.
Please note: We adopt to residents of Northern VA and Washington DC suburbs only.
This means that dog is in his new home on a two-week trial period waiting for finalization of the contract.

|Barney||Male Plott Hound|
|I'm a sweet, loving puppy and growing every day. I'm energetic, as most puppies are, but more mellow than my brother, Fred (adopted). Since I'm still a puppy, I need a home where someone is home most of the time. Otherwise, how will I be house-trained? I'd love to have a yard to play in. |
|Benjamin Buttons||Male Beagle mix|
|I'm a little shy but my SPCA friends are helping me work on my confidence building. I'm sort of goofy and fun loving. Because I'm shy, I'll run away from you first, but I'll come back if you offer me some yummy treats. I may not be the right choice if you're a first-time owner. I will be marvelous as a second dog, 'cause your other dog will teach me how to act. (His picture does not show it, but he has a black saddle on his back.)|
|Buddy||Male Dalmatian mix|
|Sometimes life doesn't turn out as expected. I had a good home when I was adopted from the SPCA but my family had to give me up. In my youth, I used to like to put my paws on your shoulders and dance with you. I'm getting older now and cannot manage that anymore. Now I love to lie with my head in your lap. I need a quiet environment, preferably with one person. I'm a pretty big guy, so a home with a fenced yard to explore (with supervision) would be nice.|
|Calvin||Male Maltese mix|
|I am a very sweet boy. I love everyone and enjoy playing with my buddies here at the kennel. |
Due to the floods and wildfires, the shelters in California were overcrowded so we agreed to help by taking in some of their dogs. When Calvin was picked up as a stray his coat was completely overgrown and the hair was in his eyes, causing irritation. His tear production is low in one eye, perhaps only temporarily, so Calvin needs ointment in that eye. Here is a video of him getting treated.
| Clover flowers are sweet, and so am I. My folks had to give me up because I need more exercise than they could provide. I love to go for walks, so if you do too, we'd be a perfect pair. Please come to an adoption event so we can get acquainted. |
|Jack||Male Black lab/Great Dane mix|
|I was adopted from the SPCA but returned because my adopter didn't have time to give me the exercise a big guy like me requires. If you can provide it, please fill out a dog adoption inquiry form so that we can arrange a visit. I don't come to every dog adoption, so I need to know you're interested.|
|Jerry||Male Lhaso Apso mix|
|I don't mean to be naughty, but I suffer from separation anxiety and I can become destructive when I'm left alone. I need a home where someone is home most of the time. Can you or a family member meet that requirement? |
Can be protective but good with people. Does have some anxieties. Good on leash, house trained and no need to be crated.
|Leo||Male Terrier mix|
|I'm a friendly fellow and I couldn't get my tail to stop wagging at the recent adoption event. How about coming to meet me and you can see for yourself.|
|Monty||Male Bloodhound/Ridgeback mix|
|I'm a big guy, but I was living in a crate 24/7 until a kind SPCA volunteer came to my rescue. Freedom is wonderful! So is having a "forever home", and I hope to have one soon. |
I am what some call "a lot of dog" so I need an experienced dog owner and more space than an apartment provides. I need to be introduced to new people. I need a house with 6 foot secure fenced yard.
If you are interested in meeting me, you have to submit a dog inquiry form. I don't come to every adoption, so the SPCA needs to know if you want to meet me.
Here's a video showing Monty at the kennel that he's living at currently.

|Ricky||Male Dachshund mix|
|I'm a bit shy when I first meet new people, but give me a little time and I'll be your new best friend. Let's meet at the next adoption event.|
|Stanley||Male American Bulldog|
|Nice people took me from a shelter to give me a second chance and they even nursed me back to health, so I thought I had it made and would have my forever home. But their dog thought differently and it wasn't to be. So now I'm appealing to you and hoping you big-dog lovers out there will come to meet me. |
Needs experienced dog person. Very lovable once he knows you. WARY of strangers

|Taffy||Female Terrier or schnauzer mix|
|Sweet tempered and eager to please.|
|Zhara||Female Basenji mix|
|Great family dog. House broken, crate trained good with other dogs.|
