Alfred vonSchnitzel

Charles Cooper McDaniels




• "Lucy" is a black and white border collie mix, about 6, surrendered with Lacy when their human died. Lucy is very special and has a typical border collie temperment. She is housebroken. For an application, email rockhaven83@gmail.com. Likes: pancakes, designer shoes, having her ears scritched just right. Dislikes: dried fruit, sirens, gravel.

• "Lacy" is a white and black beagle mix, about 6 years old, surrendered with Lucy when their human died. Lacy seems to be dog selective, but staff will recheck her when she's had some time to decompress. A lot has happened to her recently. For an application, email rockhaven83@gmail.com. Likes: artisanal bacon, regular bacon, violin music. Dislikes: karaoke, celery, people who think going to brunch is a character trait.

• "Finley" is a 7- to 8-year-old, plush-coat, male German Shepherd. He came in as a stray, his coat full of burrs. Unfortunately, he is heartworm-positive. He was good with other dogs when shelter staff checked him with a dog of similar size. He has a lot of energy, despite his age. If you would like an application for Finley, email rockhaven83@gmail.com. Likes: schnitzel, long games of bingo, a romp through the woods. Dislikes: disorder, cabbage, angry voices.

• "Lenny" is a 1 1/2-year-old, male, collie mix. An Amish family had too many dogs, so they surrendered Lenny. He's a very sweet, laid-back kind of dog. He's fine with other dogs and social. He has a gorgeous, thick, wavy coat. Staff aren't sure what his breed mix actually is, but he's a unique boy. If you would like an application for Lenny, email rockhaven83@gmail.com. Likes: scrolling through Twitter for hours, organizing things, reading books on farm management. Dislikes: loud music, being left behind on car rides, fireworks.

• “Miss Bear” is an Aussie mix, 3 years old, spayed. She acts like a true border collie, always looking for something to herd. She will run a fence and chase cars. She also stalks cats. Staff and her foster humans say they aren't sure she would harm them, but that this may be related to her prey drive. She wants to be top dog, so she needs to be with an experienced dog owner who knows how to work with her or as an only dog. If you would like an application for adoption, please email dragondog.dc@gmail.com. Likes: freedom, wide-open spaces, catching cars. Dislikes: the conundrum of what to do with a car once she’s caught it, lack of anyone paying attention to her for the slightest moment, the smell of fish.

• "Charles Cooper McDaniels" is a male shepherd mix, black and tan, about 45 pounds. Likes: long car rides, rambles through the wilderness, bubble baths. Dislikes: city noise, starless nights, getting incriminating Cheeto dust on his face.

• "Alfred vonSchnitzel" is a 1-year-old pit mix, black with a white chest, about 40 pounds. He was found running loose in Salem. Likes: running, tacos, adventure. Dislikes: fences, safety, the word 'No.'

• "Wilcox LeMaster" is a male shepherd mix, black and light tan. Staff say he doesn't look old, but his teeth are worn down. Likes: cake with buttercream frosting, watching the cars go by, chicken nuggets. Dislikes: cake with whipped frosting, helicopters, large bodies of water.

• "Prancer" is a male, Aussie-husky mix, 1-2 years old, about 45 pounds. Has the prance of a husky and beautiful blue eyes. Likes: snowball fetch, karaoke, steak. Dislikes: tofu, thunderstorms, chaos.
