My name is Sugar. Someone really knew what they were doing when they named me Sugar as I am a very sweet three year old mixed breed dog. I'm looking for my perfect forever family.

I’m a true southern girl. Not too long ago I was in Texas but came to Virginia after Hurricane Harvey. Right now I live in an apartment in Alexandria where I meet lots of new people every day on the street, in the hallways and in the elevator. Lots of people stop my foster "dad" to say what a pretty girl I am.

I'm also sharp as can be. I know basic commands and will happily sit and give you my paw for a shake. I'm happy to do that cause I love people. And if you have a treat for me, all the better. I'm fond of long walks when I can meet lots of nice people and dogs and am told I really know my leash manners.

My apartment is really nice and I keep it that way since I am both house trained and crate trained. I am a big girl though with a lot of energy and really want a house with a yard to play in, especially one with adults and older teens.

Out of my home, I am full of energy but inside my favorite activity is snoozing on the couch and on my foster’s lap. I also like to toss my kong around and play with my rope toy. You can see me playing with it at this link:

If you take me home I promise to snooze on your lap until your legs go numb and be your companion on lots of walks.

You can save animals like this one by becoming a foster! Fosters are like way stations between high kill shelters and forever homes. We need fosters so that we can save dogs before they are euthanized at the shelters. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please check out our information about fostering by visiting
