Your Next Best Friend: Allie

I'm Allie. Meet me at RAWL.
I’m Allie. Meet me at RAWL.

I’m Allie, a great dane/chocolate lab cross and what you might call “plus-sized.” I’m a recent arrival here at RAWL, and they quickly put me on a weight-loss program to get my weight down to a normal 85 to 90 pounds. I’m about 7 years old and have been chained my whole life. That’s over now: I totally love RAWL and all the affection I get here. They call me a gentle soul, and I love everyone. That could include you. Come on by and we’ll see.

The past two weeks, four of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Road, Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit
