Your Next Best Friend: Nugget


I’m so glad RAWL was here for me. I came here as a stray, emaciated, and very sad. But, boy, is life lookin’ good! My name is Nugget and I love people. They say here that I’m beyond affectionate — so true. I love my food but humans are even more special. I’m a Mountain Feist, a southern breed of dog. Our ancestral home is the Appalachian and Ozark Mountains. So I fit in right here in these beautiful mountains. Want a new best friend? I will more than fit the bill.

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