Adoptable Pet of the Week: Tony

Meet Tony, a 2-year-old Shepherd mix that’s looking for his soulmate. Your mission, should you accept, is to be Tony’s one and only human — his soulmate. His friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation say he’s a special dog looking to explore.

Here’s what Tony’s friends have to say about him:

Tony is a special dog looking for his soulmate. He would love to find a highly experienced, dog savvy adult companion living the single life who will take him to explore all the world has to offer.

Tony came to us all the way from the streets of Iran as a young puppy and is still adjusting to all the sights, smells and sounds of his new surroundings. Tony is wise beyond his years, has an insatiable thirst for training and already knows a handful of commands. As the old saying goes, practice makes perfect, so he will need someone who will be home most of the day who has the time, patience and dedication to continue his training.

With Tony, trust is earned, not given. He needs plenty of time to warm up to new people and can be quite protective of his human so he will need someone living as the only adult in a single-occupancy home. Tony is also working diligently on his dog manners and containing his reactivity when seeing other dogs on walks. Tony is not a fan of confined spaces so apartments and condos are not his cup of tea.

His wish list includes a single home with a fenced-in backyard to run, play fetch and release all his zoomies. Tony is already house-broken, crate-trained and sleeps through the night without incident. He told us that his requirements are quite modest: an experienced and single-occupancy person who will shower him with endless love and plenty of training (you), a warm spot to rest on (your lap), and cozy accommodations (your home). So, do you fit the bill? If yes, come meet Tony today and add some love, laughs and licks to your life!

Help Tony complete his mission in finding his forever home! Learn more about how to adopt Tony and check out his complete profile.

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
