Sal was rescued by a US soldier in Kuwait. He is currently looking for a home with a fenced yard and people who want a dog-dog-dogging-kinda-dog! He is all desert dog which means he’s slightly independent, pack-oriented, skittish of some things we consider normal, but loves to bond with his own pack and make himself a forever home. He has the absolute best smile! He prances like a little fox. He’s wonderful.
He’s 3 years old, neutered and current on vaccines. No small children. He likes some dogs.
Nanook is available to ADOPT OR FOSTER. He is a neutered male, 2 years old. Microchipped and up to date on all vaccines and preventions. He is a Middle Eastern Village dog and was rescued from a trash pile in Kuwait as a puppy. Nanook was adopted as a pup, but sadly his mom experienced chronic health problems and she is no longer able to care for him. His world has only been her home (with fenced yard) or a boarding kennel. He is great with other dogs in fenced areas, and loves his own caretakers. He lived with older teens and cats as well. However, his world has been small, so many new things are scary for him. Due to her health, his mom didn’t take him many places. He will need a patient home who is willing to work with him on leash manners and getting used to the big scary world that he has never experienced. Other dogs will be fine after an intro. Cats are ok. Older kids ok. He is scared of men and scared of other dogs and men while walking on leash. He also does not walk well on a leash at all yet. He will be a great companion but will need some work with positive reinforcement training. Please message WAG if interested in adopting! There is an adoption application, home visit, and fee.
Andy is approximately 2 yrs old and an absolute love. He was rescued off the streets of Kuwait at only a few weeks old and then was kept in a crate with another dog. He loves humans, but he's a bit traumatized by other dogs. Andy is a big boy, weighing in at 65 lbs., and strong. But like all puppies, he loves to play and sit on your lap and get love. He is house and crate trained and is excellent in obedience. He is smart as a whip - no pulling one over on this guy! He is dog reactive when on lead and is currently working on dog tolerance issues, so a home with no other pets would be best. He has a jealous streak. He absolutely loves people and has never met a stranger. He's great with children, but he cannot live with small children as he treats them like siblings and competition. He likes to run and jump and play, but equally enjoys just chilling out on the couch with his people. Andy needs a home with an experienced dog person as he can be stubborn with a capital S and, as mentioned, he is strong. Andy loves the outdoors, but dislikes squirrels immensely. :). Andy is a Middle Eastern Village Dog with some GSD and Azawakh relatives. If you think Andy might be your guy, please send us a message. He is currently being fostered in the Boston area, but we can transport for the right placement. Andy's foster mom says this: "Andy is the best dog. I absolutely adore him. Given strong leadership and paying some small attentions to his quirks he is a fantastic companion. If he got along better with dogs in a home situation, I would keep him without another thought. He's the sweetest." Andy’s adoption fee is $450 and he will come up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped and neutered.
Little Sadie is new to WAG and looking for the best new life. Sadly her mom’s living situation has changed and she will be needing a new home. Sadie is social with children and other dogs. She is an amazing pup who has so much love to give. She is currently near Staunton, VA, but can be adopted/fostered in MD/VA areas. We are certain with her personality, she will be adopted quickly.
Shiloh (Available for Adoption) Shiloh is a 2 y/o, 45-lb desert dog from Kuwait who loves to cuddle & lounge while at home. He has lived with other dogs and cats too. He loves his walks in the woods and on trails. He would probably do best with a quiet family or someone experienced with dogs. He is sometimes unsure of men because he was abused by high school aged boys in Kuwait as a young puppy before he was rescued. So, a special person/family who is patient and willing to follow a training protocol for Shiloh’s success in a loving home is required. Shiloh is microchipped, up to date on shots, and neutered. His adoption fee is $350. He is currently being fostered in Annapolis, MD.
Luisa is a wonderfully sweet girl from Afghanistan who is ready for her forever home. She is middle-aged and was rescued with a litter of pups. Luisa is potty trained and non-destructive, and will do well in a quiet home with a stable routine. She doesn’t care for other dogs in her space so she should be the only dog. She has good manners out in public and also when meeting new people. Luisa will be in in a Foster home in MD, but she is available for ADOPTION to the right home. To adopt, WAG requires an Adoption Application, a Home Visit, and an Adoption Fee.
Lobo has his tuxedo on and he’s ready to meet his Mr or Miss Right! He loves smooth jazz but he’s not a fan of progressive jazz. He digs old R&B, anything by Sam Cook, and The Puppy Song. He likes to watch boxing and dog sports, and he thinks football is silly - because why toss away a perfectly good ball when you could just bite it?! He would love to share a plate of cheese and crackers with a special someone. Lobo just wants a real friend to hang onto his tug rope, skritch his ears, pinch his loose cheeks, and help him bark at deer. His biggest fears are mice and spiders, so he would prefer to sleep in bed with his human so he doesn’t have to be on the floor with those little critters. He’s a slow romance and won’t kiss on the first date, but once he knows you’re the one, he is very protective and loving. He likes to sit on your lap and wants to be the little spoon. Really, he doesn’t have a preference for a male or female friend, but he does prefer to be an only friend. He likes other dogs but wants to be the only dog in the house. Message us today if you’re interested in adopting Lobo. He’s under 3 years old, neutered, vaccinated, very healthy. Located south of Charlottesville in VA.
Marty is an 8 month old pup from Afghanistan. He is such a loyal guy and will go where you go. He is a great hiking partner, and constantly checks in while walking. He’s not much of a leash puller and knows basic commands like sit, but he was raised in a shelter so will need to work on house manners. He’s such a goofball and can’t wait to bond to “his people”. He seems ok with other dogs now, and will need to continue being socialized as he matures to maintain this. Not cat tested.
Bobby was dumped on our Kuwait rescuer's doorstep at 11pm by strangers who claim that he was 12 y/o. He has a health problem which has been causing him seizures. Due to his behavior while having these episodes, he needs to be an only pet and in a house without children. He got his freedom flight out of Kuwait in late February and arrived on US soil on March 1. He’s about knee-high (30 lbs). Bobby LOVES car rides and enjoys exploring out in nature -- so if you have a garden or like to go for nature walks, Bobby would make a great companion dog for those activities. He REALLY loves to swim - it's his all-time favorite activity. Bobby is potty trained, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $350 and helps pay for his transportation costs and vet expenses. A home visit and reference check are required. He is currently being fostered in the Charlottesville, VA area.
He is about 2 years old. He is best as a one person dog although he did live with his pack brothers, a pair of Jack Russel Terriers who were about a year older than him (they too were rehomed). Stoli is 55 lbs and is a very sweet and loving pup who requires someone with patience and a big heart.
Stoli is microchipped. His adoption fee is $350. He is currently in the Maryland area.
Zina and Gauge were well-loved, but their mommy passed away and now they are homeless. Zina is a 14 year old Dutch Shepherd who was her mommy’s service dog when younger. Gauge is her 10 year old nubby-tailed sidekick. They have lived together their entire lives and we so badly want to keep them together. Both are healthy and just saw a vet. Both are potty trained, love people, and are active. They pull a bit when being walked on a leash, but a no-pull harness for each fixes this. These would be amazing dogs for an older couple (or anyone really). Zina doesn’t care for other female dogs, and Gauge is ok with most dogs that are not dominant males. Not cat tested. Haven’t been around small children in a long time, but they have in the past. They never fight and can eat beside each other. Not destructive. These are lovely dogs and deserve a retirement life. Please message us if interested!
Willard is a real happy guy! We rescued Willard back in the summer from an open intake animal control. He was super people friendly, dog friendly, kid friendly, and non-reactive to cats. He got adopted and was unfortunately neglected. Thankfully we got him back, but not without some scars. Willard is more skittish on his leash walks now. He still loves dogs and people in calm environments that are predictable, but he seems to have a touch of fear when he feels he can’t escape a scary situation such as being leashed. Because we know who Willard was prior to his last adoption, we are confident he will overcome this fear with positive reinforcement and stability. Would you like to be the one who helps Willard heal?
The universe shines its sunny rays on Peppermint Patty. Her life can only get better from here. A rescue group “rescued” her and her babies from a high-intake shelter down south only to place all her pups into homes and then threaten to euthanize Peppermint for being too shy. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body but it’s clear that she was never handled kindly. SPCA of Anne Arundel County stepped up to save her life. She’s staying with me to learn how to “dog” but she really needs a home. A home with other friendly dogs is best so she can follow suit. She is crate trained but wees in her bedding when she’s scared. She walks nicely on a leash until she sees humans - then she tries to run away 😞. She is Velcro otherwise. She would benefit from a home with a securely fenced yard and other dogs she can learn from. Anyone? You can come to my kennel to meet her. To meet her is to love her 💗
Riley is a 2 yo male, neutered, fully vaccinnated, up to date on everything 110lb bundle of LOVE! Riley is another unfortunate victim of the Coronavirus outbreak. His mom is an older woman who has taken brilliant care of Riley and provided everything a four-legged boy could want. But she used to manage Riley’s puppy vivacity and small car-size by hiking, going to the dog park, and visiting friends. Unfortunately, with the lockdown and Riley’s mom’s age and preexisting conditions, she doesn’t believe that Riley is getting the exercise or the socialization that he needs any longer. And he’s taken to chasing and terrorizing the goats, who don’t appreciate Riley’s desire to play.
In Riley’s best interest and with a giant hole in her heart, Riley’s mom asked one of WAG’s volunteers for assistance in finding Riley the best home ever. So, here we are.
Riley is good with other dogs, good with children, good with people and has great basic obedience down. He has a cat in his current foster home who is dog savvy and that is going fine, but a cat who is timid or will run is likely to be viewed as prey. Riley is a special kind of rescue - he comes from established working and show dog lines, so he is STRONG and exhibits all of the breed tendencies of GSDs! Riley can be territorial in his home, his yard, and his car. But with proper introduction, he is fine. Riley is crate trained, house trained, and walks excellently on a leash.
We would like to find Riley a family with older kids he could play with, or a doggie companion, with, a fenced yard that he can run in (without goats), and parents who are experienced dog owners, preferably GSD or other large breed dogs. Riley is seriously the biggest, most lovable goofball, but he’s a BIG BOY and smart, so he will need a new family that doesn’t set him up for failure and respects those things about him. Someone with an interest in agility, or search and rescue, or other dog “activities” would love Riley.
If you are interested in Riley, please message us for details. Riley’s adoption fee is $500.
