Sato, the hurricane rescue, your new best friend

Hola! I’m from Puerto Rico and my owners lost me because of the hurricane. After some time waiting for them to find me I was transferred to Florida, then got a ride to Virginia, and wound up at RAWL here in Rappahannock County. Beautiful place you have here.

My name is Sato and I’m a Dachshund/Corgi mix, 6 to 7 years old. I’m calm and well-behaved, wonderful on a leash and chew nothing. I prefer grown-ups and I have a ‘Baby’ seen in this picture that I treasure and don’t like other dogs looking at it. But you can throw it for me to retrieve if you want.

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 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit
