Your Afternoon Animal Fix

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit.

Cami Sleeping

“This is my new dog Cami. She is a rescue from the New York Avenue Dog Shelter. She moved into my home about a week ago and I live in Petworth.”


“This is our “Diva in Parkview”, Zoozo, after being woken from a nap.”


“This is Leroy from 16th Street Heights. He was adopted through City Dogs Rescue back in February and despite being a little shaky in the car has been a wonderful addition to our family. He loves long walks, meaty treats and snuggling on the couch.”

  • congratulations to the new dog parents! cami and leroy are so precious, and i’m sure so grateful for being adopted 🙂

  • I love a hound dog. City Dogs Rescue has done a great job bringing more hounds to the city for adoption. A calm hound makes an amazing pet.

    Zoozo is so cute! (and looks like I do when being woken from a nap, I just wish I had teeth that sharp.)

    The doggies are so cute and Zoozo looks like she is about to open a can of whoopazz on someone for waking her up. lol

  • I love Coonhounds! I think I have seen this pup around. Lucy (Redbone Coonhound) would love to play with Leroy!!

  • I have had a hound for a pet and other breeds over the years (decades) and the hound was unusual in that she never got used to the car. All other breeds did, but not the hound. I think Leroy is just a good being a true blue hound dog by being shaky in the car:-)

  • Leroy is so darn cute ! Luv those hounds

  • OMG I love Cami!
    congrats on your recent addition!!! She looks like a total love bug.

  • Congrats to Cami and family and Leroy and family! They are so cute and I just love seeing stories of rescued pets!

  • When we first got our coonhound as a puppy, he absolutely HATED the car. He would drool everywhere and very often get sick. He has become more acclimated to riding in the car, but he’s still very awkward; can never seem to find a comfortable manner of sitting/lying down, so he is constantly standing in very awkward positions.

    Sounds like there are a lot of coonhounds among the PoP commentariat. We should organize a dog park outing.

  • Yes! It’d be fun to get all the hounds together.

    Also, Meeka, I think you’re the prettiest girl at the park.

  • Congrats, Cami on your new fur-ever home! My husband and I rescued a pit mix from the NY Ave shelter last August. They are great dogs!
