Husky, Mix

An adotable dog in Bethesda, MD

  • Adult
  • Medium
  • Male

GAVIN -- Samoyed/Husky -- male -- 4.5 yrs - 52 lbs-- white -- Smiley Face Gavin started out his "DAWG life" as a silly happy pup, but after a bout of GI problems, he seemed to change. As a result, he has become wary of some people...at times, even people he knows! If he knows the person, he recovers and then wags a greeting. Yes, we checked his eyes and are working with him to get him over this strange new element of his otherwise charming personality. But considering how he needs to build his confidence in people and his surroundings, he may not be the best choice for a busy or inexperienced home, or one with younger children. We love Gavin because he is so affectionate (he hugs!), but we understand it might take a while to find someone who is a good fit for him. Maybe you're the one. After all, you clicked on Gavin!

For more information on any wonderful "DAWG dog," please review Best Dawg Rescue's adoption process, weekly adoption show schedule, and other information on Best Dawg Rescue's website: www.dawg-rescue.org. If you have any questions, please contact Best Dawg Rescue at [email protected].

No-obligation applications are encouraged before adoption shows. If your application is preliminarily considered a match for a specific "DAWG dog," we will bring that dog to the next adoption show for you, your family, and the family dog (if one) to meet. Not all "DAWG dogs" attend all shows.

PLEASE NOTE: Best Dawg Rescue only adopts in the DC/Baltimore metropolitan areas. Occasionally we will adopt further, provided a foster parent will consider the extra distance. Feel free to ask.


Check our website for our show schedule - http://www.dawg-rescue.org/adoptionshows.htm

Please note that not all dogs attend every show. For a list of dogs attending this show, please contact us at [email protected].

We need volunteers! For more information, please stop by any of our shows or contact us at [email protected].
