Whether it's a walk around the neighborhood or taking a trip to the dog park, I'm always looking forward to my walks. I have experience with walking 50 different breeds of all sizes, and it's a pleasure meeting new pups. The more the merrier. The time I get to spend with a dog, young or not so young, small or not so small, makes the day that much better.

I'm onto a new career and am a nursing student. I would love to walk and take care of your pup. I’ve been walking dogs for a few years now, and I can’t imagine not interacting with them frequently! I have a three year old beagle who we rescued in 2018. He’s gone through extensive training, so I have an array of knowledge about handling various types of dogs. I can take your dog out for a hustle if s/he is high energy, or I can let him/her sniff around and enjoy life. I’m flexible!

Dog Boarding in Bethesda

Best Dawg Rescue's mission is to aid all neglected, injured, sick, homeless and hungry dogs with medical attention, food and TLC. All dogs deserve to be loved; they love us unconditionally every day of their lives! The volunteers are Best Dawg Rescue believe we owe them respect, love, and a secure, safe, forever home. All of the dogs at their rescue become the staff's family. If a dog gets adopted and is then returned to the rescue, that dog will always have a secure, loving place to call home while he waits for his next chance at adoption. The dedicated staff at Best Dawg Rescue will never give up on their family!  

Are you ready to take the plunge and become a first-time dog parent?  The staff at Best Dawg Rescue can help you every step of the way.  Not sure which type of dog is right for you? The staff can help you with that too! Whether this is your first furry son or daughter or your 5th, the walls of Best Dawg Rescue are filled to the brim with nothing but lovable best friends waiting to meet you!  

If you can't adopt, maybe you could consider becoming a foster paw-rent. Every foster family that takes in one rescue dog opens up another spot at the rescue - you are really saving two lives! Fostering is a great way to take a "doggy test drive" if you are on the fence about adopting a dog. It will also help the dog in question to socialize with different of people and animals. 

If you can't foster, maybe consider volunteering to help out at the shelter. There is so much to do - clerical work, fundraising, cleaning, walking and playing with the dogs, transporting them to and from the vet or adoption events and so much more! If you have any spare time you can give, the staff at Best Dawg Rescue would be very appreciative. There is no better feeling than doing something selfless for others; come on in and feel that feeling over and over. The staff will thank you and the dogs will too!

The Rescue receives no funding outside of donations from animal lovers like you. Best Dawg Rescue needs donations to keep their rescue running and to keep their dogs healthy, happy and safe. If you are in the financial position to give, please consider giving generously to this great cause!
