Meet Caden - ADOPTED!!


Meet Caden! This adorable little puppy was rescued with his two pup siblings, Carly and Cameron, after being dropped off in someone's yard. The property owner discovered the puppies and immediately called Animal Control to get them to safety. All three puppies were healthy, clean, and social on intake and ended up at the local shelter. They were fortunate to get a wonderful foster home assigned to them right away and are being kept together as a pack. These are very social pups who love to be held and clearly had some early socialization.

We checked in with the pups' foster mom, Debbie, a veteran puppy foster, to see how they were doing. She shared this update:

"They are so sweet and very playful. Carly is my snuggler and loves to be held. Caden likes to be held too and really enjoys play. Cameron is confident and the most independent pup, and would rather be exploring or trying to untie my shoe. The puppies are healthy and range in size from 8 to 13 lbs. They have a solid build and we expect them to be over 50lbs when fully grown. They really enjoy each other's company and play and share toys and treats very well. They are very cuddly, affectionate puppies."

Caden needs a fun, active family ready for puppy mode and committed to training. He is very cute now but will grow to be a strong and energetic dog and needs a capable and committed handler. Caden really enjoys his siblings, so we would love to find adopters who have another social, playful pup in the home for him to play with and learn from.


Active family

Large breed dog experience

Flexible, puppy-friendly schedule

You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes. If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster and want to learn more, please go to and fill out an application.

Worthy Dog Rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue that primarily adopts to families in the DC Metro area.
