AWLA Office Dog Looks for a New Home to Help Manage

A two-year-old pitbull named Sugar — “as sweet as her name implies” — is looking for a new home after deciding to move on from her clerical career.

Sugar has experience working in the front desk of the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) at 4101 Eisenhower Avenue, where she is currently awaiting a new family.

“Sugar leads a busy life at the AWLA,” said Gina Hardter, spokesperson for the AWLA, said in an email. “When she’s not supervising the Administrative staff in their office, she’s running meetings, leading volunteer field trips, or checking the layout of the yard!”

Hardter said Sugar is sweet and very smart.

“She’s happy to show off several tricks, including sit and give kisses,” Hardter said. “And with the right teacher (and treats), she has the potential to learn so much more!”
