Princess Leia is Ready to Meet Ya!

Come meet Leia and other great adoptable dogs this Sunday (May 13) from 12-2 pm at the NE DC Petco (1503 New York Ave NE, Washington, DC 20002)!!!!!!

Approximate Weight: 30 lbs.

Meet sweet Leia! This 1 year old Terrier mix, weighing in at approximately 30 lbs., found herself and her puppies at a shelter through no fault of her own. She was rescued in the nick of time, and now she's on ready for a loving family to give her a second shot at a happy life!

As a young and energetic dog, Leia will need both mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis to keep her happy and healthy. An adopter who works full time would need to commit to having a midday dog walker for her during the week. 

Leia would benefit from frequent trips to the dog park or even doggie daycare so she can socialize with her canine friends! And of course, upon returning home, she'd love to shower her new forever family with tons of kisses and cuddles!

Although Leia loves people and gets along well with other dogs and kids, we haven't had a chance to see her interact with cats. If you have them, let us know, and we'll do our best to find out! Leia is also looking forward to attending obedience school to hone in her doggie manners and be the best dog she can be! 

Leia will make a great companion and family member; you won’t regret opening your heart and home to this sweet lady!

Like most shelter dogs, Leia may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained. 

The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Meg at!
