WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Meet Pops, a nine-year-old beagle/Blue Heeler (Australian cattle dog) mix. You can tell by his size that Pops really enjoys his meals; in fact, if you say "sit" he will do just that in expectation of a tasty treat.

Pops ended up at the Washington Animal Rescue League because his guardians could no longer care for him and he's a bit sad to be at the shelter. He'd love a home, perhaps with another friendly, low-key dog, where he'll get love and regular walks (to help burn off a few pounds).

If you're looking for a wonderful, easy-going, low-maintenance companion, Pops could be the dog for you! And if you're over the age of 50, his adoption fee will be waived as part of WARL's Boomers' Buddies program.
