Many rescues will be on hand with adoptable pets including Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue (AGPR), Mutts Matter Rescue (MMR), Mid-Atlantic Pug Rescue, Dogs XL Rescue and more! Keep reading to hear about some of these rescues’ adoptable pups!
Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue – Adopt Luke & Mark!
These two cute male pups (pictured above and in slideshow) are about 5 months old and will make perfect family dogs! The mother is a Pyr and the father is probably is a collie/shepherd mix, so they will not be as large as some Pyrs. While they have been in an outside in/out kennel, they are quickly adapting to family life indoor. Their foster family says they have wonderful dispositions and are great with other pets and people. Come check out these special guys at Dog Days or visit the AGPR website to fill out an application or check out their many Pyrs available for adoption!
Dogs XL Rescue – Adopt Sisters Meg & Molly!
These gorgeous brindle, Mastiff mix girls (pictured in slideshow) are large and full of life! They are being adopted as a pair only and need to go to someone who can handle these huge pups that each way in at more than 100 pounds! Both get along with other dogs and children, are spayed and up-to-date on shots and vetting. If you are interested in adopting Meg & Molly e-mail [email protected] or visit the Dogs XL website for a look at their many dogs available for adoption!
Mutts Matter Rescue – Adopt Sunday!
Sunday (pictured in slideshow) is a recent mama and 2-year-old American Bulldog.
