Dottie’s story is heartbreaking. She had a family, but suddenly had no one when they died and was dropped off at an animal control facility that typically euthanizes “owner surrenders” because it lacks the resources to facilitate adoptions to the public.
Dottie’s family died in a murder-suicide, and in the blink of an eye, this sweet baby lost her whole world. She did have a bit of good luck in that our rescue partner was there to scoop her up and make her a DC PAWS pup. We’re committed to helping her find a new life in the DC area in a stable and loving home. She deserves no less.
While her muzzle appears to be graying, our SC vet thinks she is about 4 years old. She is sweet, affectionate, and does well with dogs, kids, and even cats. She’d do well in just about any loving home.
If you’d like to give Dottie her happily ever after, please submit an adoption application for her today!
Like most shelter dogs, Dottie may need a refresher on housetraining and crate training. We ask all of DC PAWS’ fosters to work on both house and crate training with their foster dog.

<p>About DC PAWS Rescue</p>
<p>Our rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based dog and cat rescue in the DC area. We partner with a local rescuer in Pickens County, SC, who saves adoptable cats and dogs from the county’s animal control facility, which lacks the resources to facilitate adoptions to the public. Without a mechanism for local adoptions, all animals not claimed within the mandated hold period are euthanized. For the animals in this rural area, rescue is really the only lifeline. Our rescue partner not only works with DC PAWS to save as many dogs and cats as possible, but she has also established a successful spay/neuter clinic in the community to decrease the number of homeless and unwanted animals over the long term.</p>
