WASHINGTON – WTOP Living is partnering with the Washington Animal Rescue League to feature a Pet of the Week available for adoption. Meet this week’s pet below.

Name: Bender

Age: 12 weeks old

Breed: Australian Shepherd mix

Bio: Bender arrived at the Washington Animal Rescue League with his siblings from West Virginia early last month. These puppies are ready to start new lives in homes of their own. Bender is a cutie pie, but he’s no pushover. He’s a smart, curious, high-energy little guy who needs a human companion who is committed to giving him exercise, mental stimulation and training. In return, he’ll give you a lifetime of love, laughs and affection.

For more information about Bender, email or call 202-726-2556 ext. 503.

UPDATE: We’re pleased to announce that Bender has been adopted.
