  2. Meet Scarlet!

    Hello Everyone- it’s Monti! I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season. I’ve been taking some time off in Tennessee with my brothers and sisters, pondering my next career move. I’ll be back in Washington, DC for the Inauguration and cannot wait to see all of my coworkers at The Jefferson! With this being the season of giving, I wanted to take a moment to introduce my friend Scarlet and hope you’ll all consider ending your year by giving a home to her or any of dogs at Partnership for Animal Welfare.

    About Scarlet

    Our friends at PAW say she is an adorable young pup with a big personality and that this Beagle/ Labrador mix would be a great companion. There is nothing she enjoys more than stretching out on a nice warm, comfy lap. I know she would love to be wrapped up in a bow and put under your tree or presented as a last night Chanukah gift.

    If you are interested in meeting Scarlet or would like more information about her or any of our friends at paw please contact pawdogs@yahoo.com.

    From all of us at The Jefferson, we wish everyone a very happy holiday and a dog-filled New Year!

  10. Meet Leila

    Hello everyone – Monti here, blogging from Camp Kibble where I’m taking a much needed rest from my campaign. I want to assure everyone my campaign has not caused me to neglect my duties as Executive Canine Officer and would like to introduce you to my wonderful friend Leila!

    Leila is a house trained two-year old female Rottweiler and  is one of the strongest dogs I know. She was found starving and abandoned at a deserted gas station in Puerto Rico. Fortunately, she was nursed back to health and has been keeping everyone at PAW in good company. 

    Our friends at PAW say she is super-alert, loves humans, and gets along with most dogs. She is also pretty lively, and probably would enjoy an open space area with another dog her size to play with. There is nothing she loves more than laying beside your feet or getting her belly rubbed. 

    Unfortunately, I have to go because my campaign never sleeps and I am preparing for my National Convention. If you are interested in meeting Leila or for more information about her or any of our friends at paw please contact pawdogs@yahoo.com
