An abandoned puppy was found near the Payne Elementary School, according to a newsletter sent out by the Congressional Cemetery yesterday evening.
One of the cemetery’s K9 Corps volunteers apparently discovered the young dog tied to a fence on the 1400 block of D St. SE.
“A gentleman came to claim him and explained that one of his neighbors no longer wanted or is able to take care of the puppy and left him at another neighbor’s house,” the volunteer wrote to the cemetery. “She has been taking care of him but cannot keep him.” Now, the volunteer says the puppy, named Mr. Puppy for the time being, “needs a forever home.”
Mr. Puppy is a brindle Pit mix, about 6-7 months old, and very sweet and friendly. He appears to be in good health. His eyes are runny. We can assume that he had never received medical treatment, so probably will need puppy shots and maybe deworming (usual puppy stuff).
If you want to adopt or help Mr. Puppy, email us and we’ll put you in touch with someone in the know.
