All Adoptable Dogs

Shepherd Mix
Adoptable Dog in Blacksburg, VA
Female

 

Meet Lucy! She is a sweetheart with a loving personality. Lucy loves playing fetch with the tennis ball and tug of war. She is a great dog to take jogging or running and will do anything for a treat. Lucy adores cuddling and getting belly rubs. She is very friendly, eager to please and loves everyone she meets. She would make a great addition to any family!

Corgi Mix
Adoptable Dog in Blacksburg, VA
Male
Jack-Jack is currently house trained and walks well on a leash. Given time, he would be a great off leash pup! Jack came to us with a damaged ear (the left ear is missing part of the rostral pinna with scarring at the base of the ear) and eye (Phthisis bulbi of the left eye). However both have been checked out by a veterinarian and do not require further medical treatment. Because he has had a rough life up to this point, he is very timid of people at first meeting. However, once he gets to know you, he turns into a completely different dog!

Meet Blue! Blue LOVES belly rubs and cuddling. He enjoys getting his energy out through runs and walks. There is nothing better than coming back from work and being greeted by his big, happy smile. Blue does not bark and is great with people, but can get a little over-excited when first being introduced to someone. In additionto being house and crate trained, Blue is also trained in simple commands, such as "sit" and "shake." The best environment for Blue would be a family that enjoys playing and doesn't mind wet kisses.

Cleo may be a Mini Pittie (just over 40lbs), but she has the biggest heart! She’s the sweetest girl and loves to cuddle! She lives well with a cat and plays very well with other dogs. She can’t wait to find her forever home!

Pit Bull Mix
Adoptable Dog in Blacksburg, VA
Male

Peanut butter ("PB" for short) is a super cuddly guy that is eager to please! He is approximately 2 years old and knows sit, lay down and shake. He does great on walks with a gentle leader and is house broken.  PB loves to spend most of his time cuddling and sleeping. He does great with dogs of all sizes. When this guy is ready to go to bed he will run to the bedroom and cover himself up with a blanket.

Redtick Coonhound
Adoptable Dog in Blacksburg, VA
Male

Clifford is an ~2 year old 45 lb Redtick Coonhound. He's got a moderate amount of energy, but this is easily curbed with a long walk or a nice game of fetch. He would also make a great running partner! He knows sit, down, stay, and come, and he's a very food motivated boy so teaching him is not super difficult. Clifford's favorite thing to do is hide all his toys to re-find them later!

Boxer/Lab Mix
Adoptable Dog in Blacksburg, VA
Female

"My name is Loretta! No, I don't sing like Loretta Lynn, but I will still make a great companion. I love to run and play but at the end of the day, I just want to cuddle. I am a big girl, but don't let that intimidate you because I am sweet as pie and wouldn't hurt a fly!"

Boxer Mix
Adoptable Dog in Blacksburg, VA
Female
Dolly is such a snuggler! She seems like she's had a rough life and still cowers sometimes around quick movements or loud noises. However, as soon as she realizes you're not going to hurt her, she becomes such a wiggle-butt and crawls into your lap for belly rubs. She initiates play any chance she gets and bounces around just like a pup. She gets along very well with all of my dogs, both of the cats, and she loves strangers! She still sometimes finds unapproved items to chew on, but otherwise she has picked up house-training very quickly.

Female

 

Sadie is a smart, lovable, recent mama dog who is house and fence trained. Sadie likes to play, run, and nap outdoors while she evens out her tan lines in the sunshine. She also likes to sleep with her friend, Frankie the cat. Sadie is learning to walk gently on a lead but has trust issues and will need gentle, patient people in her forever home so she can also learn that no one will ever hurt her again.

 

Mixed breed
Adoptable Dog in Blacksburg, VA
Female

Dixie is an energetic, playful girl around 1.5 years old who would make a great running or hiking partner. Thus far, she has been crate trained, completely house broken, and knows the commands sit and drop. She does well loose in the house, but can pull on the leash when out for walks. She has a very dominating personality so she would do better in a house without other dogs. Dixie would benefit from being in a household that can give her lots of attention and exercise, and in return she will snuggle with you in bed and be your constant companion.

Labrador Retriever Mix
Adoptable Dog in Blacksburg, VA
Male

Murphy is a 5 year old chow-lab mix who is very smart and sweet. He is completely house broken and knows many basic commands, such as sit, lie down, come, stay, and off. At home, he gets along well with family members and tries to be in the same room as his foster. He is very well behaved indoors and does not need to be crated when left alone. He gets very excited when his foster comes home and loves to greet her with a toy in his mouth!
