WASHINGTON -- We have some real charmers for you this week, including a beautiful dog named Pebbles who is deaf, and who comes with her very own guide dog named Josie.

Two of this week's dogs will be especially grateful for happy new homes. Hubert and Hugo were recently brought to the Washington Humane Society for emergency care after sustaining serious injuries -- these guys are just two of the more than 1,400 animals whose sad stories are investigated by WHS law enforcement every year.

They're looking for new homes now, and like all the animals in this week's slideshow of adoptable animals, they are ready for some serious love.

Pebbles is a heeler mix who must be adopted with her counterpart, Josie. Pebbles is deaf and Josie is her "ears."

Five-year-old Pebbles is gorgeous and fun, she knows hand signals, is housebroken and never met a stranger. These two girls are so close it'd be like having one dog!

Find out more about these pups from the Humane Society of Fairfax County.


This week's animals come from the Washington Humane Society, Oldies But Goodies Cocker Spaniel Rescue, the Humane Society of Fairfax County and the Montgomery County Humane Society.
