Say hello to Elsie (but we've learned she prefers Leesie)! Leesie and her pups come to the DC area from way down South! She was a great mom to her beautiful pups but now she is ready for some love and special pampering of her own! Leesie LOVES to go for long walks/jogs and does great on leash. She would be a great hiking partner or jogging partner. This wonderful gal is extremely smart and athletic, so if you are looking for a great dog to do agility, fly ball, frisbee, etc., then this sweet gal is PERFECT! She's wonderful with kids and dogs, but not cats. Leesie is looking for a home with a large securely fenced yard to play in, but it's not required if you can exercise her enough (miles, not minutes, of walking/jogging) but the best bet is to give her a job to keep her mind busy! Leesie is a quiet gal and is a true gem...she would love to be your forever best friend!
Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.
Adoption fees cover basic vetting, spay/neuter surgery, rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, monthly flea/tick prevention, and our transport costs.
Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home. For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit or email
