Black Labrador Retriever

Small  |  Female

Arlington, VA


Venus is a sweet little girl who lost her parents at an early age. Sadly, she and her littermates are orphans, but were kenneled with some older dogs at the shelter who were able to guide them and teach them good dog behavior and social skills. They just arrived in Northern VA and are ready to start their new lives.
Venus is hoping that a great family will be ready to adopt her soon. She will need a home where someone is committed to continuing her socialization with people and dogs. If you have the time available to devote to training and raising a young puppy, please apply today.
We do not know the exact makeup of these puppies but believe they have some mix of Lab in them. They have a fluffy fur coat, some have a curled tail (maybe Husky mix), and based on their current size, we believe they will be 30-40lbs when fully grown. They are sweet natured puppies who play well with their littermates, and will blossom in a loving, nurturing home.

You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes. If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster and want to learn more, please go to and fill out an application.
Dogs Deserve Better of Northern Virginia is an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue that primarily adopts to families in the DC Metro area.
