Here at Healthy Hound Playground, we give back to our community by offering dogs without homes a place to stay near Reston, VA while they wait for their forever home. If you’re located nearby in one of the Northern Virginia cities we service please consider our Dog Boarding Fosters! We work with Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland because of the excellent manner in which they run their organization, and the responsibility they take for all of their dogs.
Below you will find the dogs we are currently fostering. If you would like to meet one of them, please contact us and we will set up a time for you to come in.
Bernie is a Treeing Walker Coonhound who is 7 yo/51 lbs and doesn’t seem to be a day over 2. Bernie loves human interaction, stuffed animals that can be buried, and treats galore. Bernie is an alpha female and gets along well with other non-alpha dogs. She will need to be potty trained when she finds her forever family.
Gretchen is a female Treeing Walker Coonhound hound mix (we think) who is about 2 yo/35 lbs. She has a very sweet, loving and charismatic personality. She has a huge appetite for food, fun and playtime. She thinks of herself as a large laptop and will lay and rest with you as long as you will let her. She is crate trained and would do well with kids and other dogs. She will need some potty training.
Buddy is a 40lb/2yo Tri Color Blue Tick Coonhound. Buddy loves human attention but is wary of new people and situations, especially males, but warms up to those who have earned his trust. He likes to spend his time lounging on his favorite dog bed and will hang out and relax with you all day. He gets along well with all dogs.
