About Theo

Adoption Fee: $350

Hi, I’m Theo, a 1 year old, 45 lb., heeler/husky x. You can say I have a zest for life. I mean, look at my smile! I had a home before coming to PAW, but I was surrendered because my previous owner didn’t have time for me. At first, I was sad, but I made lots of canine friends at the dog shelter, like Bosley, who also hitched a ride with me to PAW. As much fun as I am having with Bosley and my other friends, I still long for a forever home. Ideally, my forever family would spend time playing with me, giving me lots of belly rubs, and perhaps have another dog I can play with. I also heard that this area has lots of dog parks. If so, I’d love to visit! You can say I’m a social butterfly, but just with four paws. The nice people at PAW promised to find me a forever home and, in return, I promise to bring a smile to your face and love you forever.

My handler for one of the adoption events also took me to her home to play with her two dogs.  After spending time with me, she said:  "I am a big fan of Theo!  He is affectionate and calm,  rode well in my car (seemed to enjoy looking out the window), and was friendly to other dogs both at the adoption event and at my house. He checked out our yard, played some, and was not at all rough or threatening to my dogs.  He sat when asked (especially if it is for a treat!) and used the doggie door.  He does not seem to know other commands yet and will need some instruction for walking on a leash as he is enthusiastic and pulls some, but he takes notice if he is told 'no' or to 'wait' ".  She would encourage people to come meet me and join her fan club!

From another volunteer: Theo is affectionate, attentive, pretty calm, rides well in car (in fact, seemed to enjoy looking out backseat window). While he didn’t want to play the whole time, he was friendly to our 2 dogs, interacted some, and was not at all rough or threatening. He followed them without hesitation thru our doggie door. He is always looking for treats, sits readily when told to, but as far as I could tell doesn’t know other commands and is a little hard to walk on a leash just because he is strong and enthusiastic. He would pause from pulling and look at me when I spoke to him and stayed closer after a little while.

A third volunteer said that Theo quickly became attached to her and when she left him in her home for a bit, he got very sad and barked and howled, so Theo would do best in a single family home because apartment and townhouse neighbors don't always love to hear the language of dogs!

PAW places animals in the Washington, DC/Baltimore Metropolitan area only.

Briar Rose (or Rose for short) and her brother Phillip are an absolutly adorable, 4-month-old, bonded pair of kittens. Briar Rose is a gray and tan, female, tiger-tabby who is super social and full of curiosity! Sweet little Rose is adventurous and playful but also very affectionate and cuddly. Briar Rose is extremely playful and high energy. She loves to zoom around and can leap high into the air to bat her favorite toys. At the end of a play session, she sweetly cuddles with her brother and or a nearby human. She has adorable black and white spots on her tummy! Briar Rose and Phillip have tested negative for FIV/FeLV. They are spayed and neutered, microchipped, and current on all vaccinations. Briar Rose & Phillip Are A Bonded Pair!  *Please Only Apply If You Would Like To Adopt This Pair Of Kittens* Both kittens will be great with kids (no clawing or biting). They purr when you scoop them up and hold them! If you think these two kittens would be the perfect addition to your family, please fill out PAW's Cat Adoption Application by following this link: or using the “Adopt” button on this kitten’s profile page. Once your adoption application has been reviewed and approved, a PAW volunteer will assist you through the adoption process.  PAW's Cat Adoption Team currently conducts virtual ‘Meet and Greets’ via Zoom, Facetime, or another video conferencing platform. Since adopters are often unable to meet our rescue cats in person, PAW will honor a 2-week trial adoption period to ensure the match you’ve made is perfect! If you have questions, please contact Natalie at As an all volunteer organization we do our very best to review and respond to Adoption Applications as well as general Inquiries in a timely manner. However, we genuinely appreciate your patience as it often takes several days to a week to complete this process. Once an application is received, reviewed and approved, a volunteer will be in touch with you as quickly as possible! show less
