My name is Bellatrix, but everyone calls me Bella for short. My foster mommy named me Bellatrix because she said I had cast a spell of cuteness upon her, and I am I glad I did! I'm looking for my forever home. Maybe it's with you? I'm a dark brindle pit bull terrier with a dash of white on my nose, my toes, and my belly – I'll probably be a mid-sized pup at most when I grow up all the way. 'm a little shy with new people and situations but once I warm up I'm the life of the party. I get along great with other dogs (I live with two right now), especially if they're into my typical pittie puppy rough and tumble play style. I also live with some cats, but sometimes I try to play with them the same way I do my doggie friends and I'm not sure they appreciate it. Most importantly, I love children. I spent the first part of my life with a bunch of kids, and they make me really happy and comfortable when they're around. Most of all, I would love to live with some children. I'm eager to please (I love toys and treats, but for my money you can't beat praise and attention)! Once I'm done romping I love some cuddling and of course, belly rubs. I'm pretty good at sitting, I'm working on my house-training, and staying in my crate longer and longer. If you have fallen in love with me, please fill out an application at www.jasmineshouse.org

I'm Dixie! My sweet pixie heart was broken when I was little. I lived on a chain and nobody loved me for what seemed like forever. But I'm free now, and safe, and I'm learning day by day that people are nice, and really care about me. I love my walks more than anything in the world. And I really like to play with my dog friends outside. Inside I'm a little bit more reserved. I prefer to rest in my crate, chew marrow bones, nap, and quietly observe my surroundings. Little by little I'm starting to feel comfortable with more attention from the people I know best. It will take me some time to settle in and adjust to a new home, and new people, but I am brave and I will get comfortable with patience. I wonder if my special family is out there somewhere looking for me? Love, Dixie

This is Lady. She came from a very sad situation last year, but life is so much better for her these days! Lady is about 5 years old, up to date on all of her shots, and spayed. Lady has made incredible progress in the last few months. She's a fearful girl, but she's proven to be equally brave, and she's a different dog than she was when she came in to our foster program. Lady was happy to keep to herself when she came to us – unsure of all people, most places, and many things. These days, though, she stays out with her foster family, cuddles, and the other day she was sitting on Fosterdad's feet for a bit like a big goof ball! She's mostly healed up from her knee surgery, too. Lady is also beginning to generalize her more-secure behaviors. During a recent stay with her backup foster family over the holidays she did everything she does in her primary foster home: She played and walked, snuggled, etc. Lady world prefer to be the only dog in the home – though she does not exhibit reactivity, or even much interest in other dogs while on leash on a walk. And she loves her walks, maybe more than chicken! She would prefer a quiet, calm home, with someone who will allow her to snuggle until her heart is content. http://jasmineshouse.org/adopt/adoption-application/

Hi! My name is Maple, and I'm all kinds of squishy, wiggly fun! If you're looking for a medium-sized dog that will love you to the stars and back, I'm your girl! I love to snuggle on the couch and hope one day to make my way to the bed. You see, I came from a not-very-good place, where my former owner kept me on a chain outside with dozens of other dogs. Some of these dogs were fought, but my rescuers aren't sure if I was. What they do know is that I was used to make puppies. Probably lots of puppies. But no more! I'm now getting great vet care, am up-to-date on my shots, and I've been spayed. So no more puppies for me! I'm currently in foster care in Northern Virginia, but my rescue will consider adoptive homes in DC, MD, PA, and VA. Every day is a new adventure for me. I have a great "sit" before mealtimes and while getting leashed. And I've never had any accidents in the house. We're taking things very slowly to make sure I'm set up for success (that's why I haven't graduated to the bed yet). In mid-January 2015, my foster mom and my trainer will introduce me to my foster mom's dog. That will be a good indicator as to how I'll do with other dogs. Then I should be ready for adoption mid- to late-January 2015. If you'd like to meet me before then, please email kate@jasmineshouse.org. I can tell you now that I'd love to meet you!! xoxo, Maple

Hi! I'm a shy guy with a sad past, but it's been all uphill for me over the last few months. I seem to really enjoy spending time with my Fosterbrother, but I have a long way to go building confidence and learning to feel safe in the world. I would love a home with patient, loving parents (or even just one parent, of course). I think I'd really like to have a dog sibling, too, but I'm not sure how I do with kids yet – I'm pretty new to this whole "rescued' thing. I do like people who take the time to let me meet them slowly and will love me for the sweet, sensitive boy that I am.
