Woof and Growl - Silver Spring, MD

.Meet Woof and Growl!!  These 11 yr old, ~16 lb Wire Haired Fox Terrier mix brothers found themselves in a bad situation when their owner became homeless and they were abandoned at a veterinarian's office. These gentlemen are good with other dogs, housebroken, and good with kids!!  Plus they have the cutest eyebrows we've ever seen!  Woof and Growl are seniors but they are in good health so not hospice dogs.


Do you have a BIG Heart? Do you know someone that does? Roxie's Fund would LOVE to find Woof & Growl a loving "furever" home so they can relax in their Golden years! Please visit http://roxiesfund.org/  to find more information about this incredible pair!!  

Duchess - Cheverly, MD

This sweetheart is Duchess.  She is a 10 yr old, 20 lb, spayed female Schnauzer.

Duchess has had a rough couple months. Her beloved owner passed away and the family of the deceased who swore to take care of her dog passed Duchess around because nobody wanted to take care of her.  That is so confusing to any animal, let alone a sweet senior!


Once it became obvious that she has some medical issues that require medical attention, she got promptly dumped in kill shelter. Duchess arrived to us with giant fatty cell growth the size of baseball (not cancerous!!), that was causing her lots of pain. She was scared and confused and not trusting anyone. We had the tumor removed and got her the medical attention that she needs.


She is now post surgical recovery and ready to find a special home. Her whole world has been turned upside down after years of security and love, so she is weary and needs an understanding human who gives her time to warm up. She is in loving foster home with other dogs and gets along with almost all the doggies there, but would be perfectly fine being your one and only.


She hates being crated, and is looking for a home who wants a companion who follows you around the house and wants to be in your presence. She will get grumpy about being picked up and prefers to be your snuggle buddy and lounge partner (most likely cause she has just gone through so many medical procedures).. Duchess would do amazing as a companion for an older person who is looking for a dog who will make you her whole world. She is confused right now, but with love and stability, she will blossom again and hopes to find a special human who will allow her to gracefully live out her old years in peace surrounded with love. Please open your home to a wonderful senior.  For more information please email: Dena at denae@k-9lifesavers.org .
