This sweet, spunky, gem of a pup has yet to meet a human who hasnt fallen for her big eyes, soft licks, and general curiosity about all things in the world. 

Her favorite activities? Snuggling on the couch, as close to you as she can get, generally in the crook of your arm and looking up at you with loving eyes. Romping about the backyard with her foster sister (a 40-lb black lab mix), playing and zooming about to her hearts content. Playing with toys - and occasionally stealing her foster sisters toys :). Oh and belly rubs. Those are the best, of course.

Laverne absolutely adores other dogs - she tries to copy everything her foster sister does and snuggled up next to her from the first day - but would also do just fine as the only pet. Shes generally pretty good at housetraining, but will have the occasional accident. She is crate-trained and does very well in it, sleeping throughout the night or settling down in it as needed, but her favorite place is definitely the couch. Or maybe her foster sisters dog bed :). She is also starting to learn some commands - mostly down and look.

Laverne is a small pup, she is about the size of a jack russel terrier and we do not think she will be getting much bigger!

This puppy is up to date* on their vaccinations, has been spayed and is microchipped.

*UP TO DATE: Meaning they have received their age-appropriate vaccinations. May have a booster shots pending as they must be given 3 weeks apart. May be rabies vaccination pending as puppies must be atleast 16 weeks old before receiving a rabies vaccination.

If you are interested in meeting a dog or cat, we require an adoption application.

Nerdy Paws Animal Rescue is a foster based rescue in Springfield, VA. 
We do not have a shelter, all of our animals are in foster homes. 
We require all potential adopters to fill out an application before setting up a meeting with the animal and their foster family.

If the animal has *HAS APP* listed in their name it means they currently have an application that has not been finalized. They are still available to receive additional applications but also may be in the process of being adopted soon.
