Abbott and Costello: Dog Pals and Bonded Pair, Need a New Home

ALEXANDRIA, VA – Abbott and Costello came to the AWLA as the only two survivors from an animal neglect case in another state. They are a bonded pair, meaning they need to be adopted together. They are both males around 2-years-old. While Costello is ready to run, play fetch with toys, and receive affection, Abbott isn’t so sure. Abbott is very timid and shy in new situations. He very much seeks comfort and reassurance in Costello. Costello seems to know Abbott is scared and checks in with him consistently during play and social sessions. We think with time,  patience, love (and his best bud Costello) Abbott will blossom in a home. You will get twice as much love with this pair!


The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) is located at 4101 Eisenhower Ave. Founded in 1946, the AWLA has supported and served as a resource for homeless animals. The organization remains an integral part of the community by providing opportunities for adoption, spay and neuter assistance, education, and outreach. To learn more, visit
