Tysons’ Pet of the Week is Beau, an energetic pup who loves hiking and playing fetch but also cuddling up on the couch.
Here’s what his friends at Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation have to say about him:
Beau is a 1-year-old Aussie-mix, who had a bit of a rough start to his life and is ready for his loving forever home!
While initially skeptical of some people, Beau opens up quickly over a game of fetch and shows his goofy, playful self. You’re sure to win him over if you can throw the tennis ball for hours! If you’re looking for a high-energy dog to play with and take on hikes that also likes to cuddle with you, this is the one. Beau loves to run and play with you and/or other dogs for hours, but at the end (or the middle) of the day, there’s nothing he wants more than to curl up and cuddle with you!
Beau gets along wonderfully with his foster brother and would be happy to play all day with a resident dog or be your one and only that gets all the love and attention. Beau is looking for an active, adults-only home with a fenced yard and dog experience. He is great with other friendly, playful dogs, but he doesn’t like those pesky smaller creatures like cats or bunnies!
If you’re looking for a smart, active pup that learns quickly and knows basic commands, is house-trained and loves to play (with humans and canines), then Beau would like you to apply to be his best friend!

Tysons’ Pet of the Week is Boomer and Frisky, two fellas who were transported up from Texas after the winter storm earlier this year.
Here’s what their new friends at 4Paws Rescue Team had to say about them:
Meet Boomer and Frisky! They came up together from Texas when it was freezing over. Now they are best friends. It would be great if they could stay together as a pair.
Boomer is the orange and white big guy. Boomer is a talker and rather demanding of his attention. Boomer is very tolerant and would do fine with children of any age. Boomer is dealing with some allergies, but with half a Zyrtec a day, he’s fine.
Frisky is the younger brown tabby. Frisky takes a bit longer to warm up, but he is just as affectionate once he’s settled in. Frisky has made friends with his human foster brother, and is fine with older children.
Both are immensely sweet. They absolutely love being petted and will crawl into your lap to get affection. They follow you around and come out to greet you. They both enjoy being brushed and are tolerant of having their claws clipped. Neither of them are picky about food, and they both have great litter box habits.
Boomer’s estimated birth date in October 2017 and Frisky’s is June 2019. Both cats have been neutered, are current on vaccinations, have tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and are microchipped.
Are you, Boomer and Frisky the perfect trio?
Tysons’ Pet of the Week is Heidi, a gentle and sensitive dog who’s estimated to be about four to five years old.
Here’s what her friends at Operation Underdog WV had to say about her:
Our newest girl is Heidi, and she is a delight! This pretty girl even had a smile on her face for her shelter intake photo. We’ve recently gotten her into a foster home and she’s sweet as can be. She is doing well with resident dogs and does not appear to be concerned with outside cats, though we have not tested her with an indoor cat at this time. She walks pretty well on a leash and enjoys going out for walks.
Heidi is doing better with house-training but will still need consistency and continued reinforcement in her adoptive home. She is a gentle and sensitive dog, so praise and positive methods are best for her.
Heidi had at least a recent period of struggle in her life. She is thin, was covered in ticks and has worn paw pads. Due to some teeth tarter and wear in the front, we are estimating she is 4 to 5 years old. Her ideal weight is probably going to be around 50 lbs. She is relatively quiet so would likely work in a home with shared walls, etc. Email for an application.

Tysons’ Pet of the Week is Noi (aka Baby Girl), a young tabby who loves cuddles.
Here’s what her friends at 4Paws Rescue Team have to say about her:
Meet Noi, a young short-haired grey tabby with soulful green eyes.
Noi’s foster family calls her Baby Girl, since she acts like such a sweet baby. She actually allows you to cuddle her and carry her around like one!
This shy yet gentle young lady loves ear and head scratches and being with her human companions.
Noi is an expert at making tunnels out of blankets and pillows, and you can often find her squeezing herself into the tiniest of spaces to take naps.
She would do best in a quiet home without dogs, young children or other cats.
Noi came to 4Paws from a small shelter in Kentucky. Her birthdate is estimated to be March 2020. She is spayed, current on vaccinations, has tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and is microchipped.
Are you and Noi the perfect match?
Tysons’ Pet of the Week is Shelby, a 3-year-old mix breed who sits low to the ground.
Shelby is available for adoption through Operation Underdog WV. Here’s what they have to say about her:
Meet short stack Shelby! This little low-rider is super cute. She is about 35 pounds and 3 years old. She does well in a crate and appears to be well house-trained.
Shelby is a little apprehensive of new people, so a quieter home and patient intros are best for new human friends. Once she is given a little time to know you, she becomes a snuggler and loves to give kisses.
She likes dogs that are smaller than she is but is nervous around larger dogs. She enjoys sniffing around the yard and eating snacks.
