Meet Dasher: White and Black Pointer for Adoption at Fairfax Animal Shelter
Eight-year-old dog, 'perfect gentleman,' available for adoption.
Looking to add a furry friend to your household?
Here's some information about one of the pets up for adoption at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter:
"Staff took Dasher home to foster for one night. He was a perfect gentleman! He was wonderful getting in and out of the car - was very gentle when he met two cats and a female dog. He was non-reactive when my female dog growled at him and was perfect around the cats.
"He came in, laid on a soft doggy bed, and made himself right at home. Very calm dog - would be wonderful with children or other pets. No issues with marking or dominance the entire night. Slept through the night. Appears to be completely potty-trained. He is incredibly gentle and trusting - not needy or anxious, just so happy to have a soft, warm bed.
"Dasher does have some trouble getting into the car and getting up large steps. Just needs a little assistance. What a great dog. The family that gets him is very lucky!"
