Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet! Medicine is an adolescent pit mix that oozes puppy energy out of every inch of his adorable little body. He will be needing a family with patience and the willingness to train him up in the way that all puppies need to be trained to become balanced adults. Medicine is a smart boy. He seems to be house trained and he knows the sit command very well. Other than that, he's pretty much a blank slate waiting for someone to help him write his story. If you are looking for a bouncy boy that loves to do zoomies and is super excited about each and every new thing he encounters then please take a few minutes and come meet Medicine. If you have a dog at home and are interested in this guy then please bring them along with you to make sure they will get along. Also, I would think that he would be best suited to a home without small children as he's pretty much a child himself and isn't really good about controlling his bursts of energy, you know, a lot like any human toddler, only this guy has a mouth full of brand new teeth that he's not quite sure what to do just yet. I was working with him today on taking treats nicely. He has got some maturing to do, but like I said, he's a smart boy and with a dedicated family he will become a great family dog in time. Thanks for considering adoption from Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center, 341 S Birdneck Road. Stop by soon and ask to meet Medicine and see what you think about adding a pup with a big personality to your family! Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center has wonderful pets available for adoption. As of December 6, all animals are now at the new shelter at 341 Birdneck Road.

More About American Pit Bull Terrier Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Virginia Beach, VA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet! Truck-N: The Philosopher Cogito ergo sum. (I think, therefore I am.) Truck-N is a boy Rene Descartes might just be describing with his famous quote. Truck-N is a big gray and white boy who has been described by his foster mom as one who thinks. She describes Truck-N as a philosopher. He is quiet and contemplates his environment. He looks, he sees, he evaluates. Truck-N is an experienced 3 yr old who is available for adoption from Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center. He is house trained and good on the leash. He seems to get along great with certain dogs but because this may not be true for everyone, we strongly suggest bringing in any resident dog for a meet and greet. In his foster home Truck-N is quiet and easy going. He seems to enjoy being around his three female doggie foster siblings but he especially loves being around his foster mom and dad. He just enjoys hanging out with them. Truck-N enjoys a good sun bath in the back yard and daily walks. Truck-N is an easy boy to hang out with for sure! Like most every dog, Truck-N has his own quirks everyone should know about. Because he’s a thinker, he does not like new people to put their hands in his face when it comes to meeting them. He needs to evaluate them first before he is comfortable with them in close proximity to his face. He will very clearly let the hand know it is not yet welcome, and I say yet because he needs time to make sure he's ok with this. Any potential adopter should be ready to stop new people from approaching Truck-N until they say it’s ok and have told the approaching stranger the proper way to meet him. He needs to do it on his own terms and no one else’s, but that’s what philosophers do, right? They think on their own terms in their own time. Truck-N will be best in an adult only home where there is less chaos and noise. When it comes to children, it’s probably best to limit them to older and respectable children who can listen to directions. Barriers have proven to be somewhat of a challenge for Truck-N so potential adopters should know to not use inside gates. But that shouldn't be a problem because Truck-N is a well mannered boy who can be left alone to roam free in a home without any worries. Truck-N is looking for a new family who will give him time, attention and daily walks. He needs someone to learn how his mind works, to understand him and to give him a chance. Truck-N is no longer in a foster home due to his place being taken by another shelter dog that needed it more. If you are interested in this big boy, please come visit with him at the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center located at 341 S Birdneck Rd in Va Beach. He is currently in a back room at the shelter waiting for a space in adoption so if you don’t see him, please just ask to meet and remember let him come to you! He’s a good boy who just needs someone who understands him. His id number is 1604-0789. Thank you for considering adoption!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet! 5 year old Crumb is a gorgeous blue-coat APBT mix, with a very unique look to him. He has the most gorgeous hazel/green eyes ever! He has the stocky, strong body, but has shorter legs than normal, by no fault of his own. His unique, look, and confident personality will definitely get some heads turning. He has a fun, silly personality that will make you laugh just when you need it! He has been with us since August 2016, but he hasn't let that get his spirits down. Crumb LOVES tennis balls but he will easily trade you his ball for a treat. He also loves toys (maybe a little too much) and may not want to share them with the little ones if they try and grab them from him. Because of this passionate love for toys, we prefer he go to a home without young, toddler aged children. He enjoys playing fetch and he will thank you for all the fun by swinging his head and look at you with his distinct eyes. Crumb has not been around other dogs one on one, but every dog he was around while we had him out he was nonreactive . Based on this we feel he likely would be good with another dog in the home, but it is very important to do meets with everyone in the family. Please bring your dog and the rest of the family to meet this super cool, silly acting, ball loving, treat stealing boy to Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center, 341 S Birdneck Road. You can ask for Crumb at the front desk, as he is currently residing in the transition suites in the back. His ID # 1608-0813 and we will be happy to bring him out to meet you! Thanks for considering adoption! We know he is going to be a life of the home, when he gets to his new family. Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center has wonderful pets available for adoption.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet! Bulbasaur had a family. He lived in a home. He had shelter. He had food. But there were many things he was missing. He was missing a warm and comfortable shelter. He was missing enough food to keep his tummy filled. He was missing love on a daily basis. You see, our Bulbasaur was used as a breeding dog. He was kept around only to make puppies. He did not get daily love. He did not get daily TLC. We can say this because it seemed although he was fed, it was clear the food was never enough for a big growing boy. Bulbasaur was very very thin, in definite need of some nourishment and much more than he had been used to w hen he was surrendered to us. Bulbasaur is estimated to be 5-8 years old. He's mature but still enjoys walking, running, and sniffing all over. Since arriving on our doorstep, Bulbasaur has been friendly, loving and good on a leash! He seems to like other dogs although he has a dominant nature about him and always needs to make sure other dogs know he's the alpha. If you have a resident dog, please bring him or her in for a meet and greet so we can see how they do together. There are several things to know, however, when it comes to Bulb and another dog. He grabs at food very hard even when taking treats. He has shown some guarding behavior over his food. These two characteristics can be worked with as long as the new adopter is willing and able. Because of these behaviors, it is best Bulb have a homne with older respectable children or an adult only home. He does love his humans and seems to be willing to accept all people as his new friends. His trust and confidence is awesome. His happy-go-lucky-ness is contagious. He is a silly boy who does not yet know how to play with toys or tennis balls but he does still love a good yard to run around in. Bulbasaur has proven to be a good walking or running partner so if you enjoy long walks along the beach or hiking in the mountains, Bulbasaur might be the one you need! Bulbasaur seems to be house trained but even if he is not perfect, he has shown he really wants to please his people so a refresher course on house training will be swift and effective. Bulbasaur is one you could take for car rides and on family vacations. Bulbasaur is ready to find a new home where he is a part of the family and not just an outsider left in a crate, in the yard or used as a money making machine. He is a sweet and friendly boy, easy-going, and ready to settle in with a new loving family. He is waiting at the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center located at 341 S Birdneck Rd in Va Beach. He is in the back kennel so you just have to ask to meet him and someone will bring him out to you. His id number is 1607-0761.

What can I say to help you understand that Lavender isn't just another pretty face? I mean, clearly she's got a face that could bring a blind man to his knees, but that's only the tip of the iceberg that is our Lavender. I think I will start with what I learned about her today. First she is a good girl. She sits while being leashed/harnessed, without even being asked. She is house trained. She went potty as soon as she made it outside. She is also trained to sit and lay down. She's got some age on her, we estimate her to be somewhere between 5 and 8. However, she's still spry and loves to run and play outside. She does great zoomies and will fly by you with the biggest smile on her face. When I see a dog like this I often wonder, if they can be so happy given a few minutes to play outside while at the shelter, how happy will she be when she gets to play in her own backyard with her own family every single day! She's listed as a pit bull, and I agree she's got pit in her, but if you look close at her face when she gives you the side view she's also got some bulldog somewhere in her lineage. Lavender is a lover. She couldn't get close enough to the volunteer I had helping me with pictures. When she wasn't doing zoomies she was sitting as close to him as she could possibly get. She melted every time he rubbed her head. She could be a lap dog easily. Well, except that she is 65 pounds, but hey, she could still lay on the couch and spoon! She isn't a fan of other dogs so will need to be the only dog in your family, but she's worth it. Bottom line, Lavender is so very easy to love, so come with an open heart and a leash and let her win you over. I promise she is going to do it if you give her just a few mintues! You can come in and meet Lavender now at Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center, 341 S Birdneck Road. Just ask for her (ID# 1702-1635) in the front lobby if you don't see her on the adoption floor and we will gladly bring her out to let you hang out with her and see if she steals your heart like she has mine!

We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet! I've got nothing but love for this beautiful blue baby that we call Quorn. She's spectacular and she knows it! Listed as adult pup of probably 3 to 5 years old, this little one has had more than her fair share of producing offspring. She's ready, willing, and able to be the baby to someone who will promise to spoil her and adore her for the rest of her life. Quorn is deaf. You wouldn't know it though. She doesn't let that little inconvenience slow her down. She loves to go for walks and play outside. She will chase a ball and sometimes even bring it back with her! She loves a good roll in the grass and couldn't be happier than when she's rolling and getting her belly rubbed at the same time. She came into the shelter as a stray with a horrible case of mange. She's looking and feeling much better after a couple months of treatment and special food. She appears to be house trained and knows the sit command. She loves, loves, loves people and would be thrilled to be someone's velcro dog for life! You can meet this special blue pit bull girl today at Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center, 341 S Birdneck Road.

      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed. Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet! LITTLE BIRDIE is available for adoption through Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center (VBACAC). Currently, she is in an off-site foster home where she is settling in very well. Little Birdie was found as a stray and picked up by VBACAC in November 2016. No prior history information available. Little Birdie was fairly quiet at the shelter and now that Birdie’s been in a home setting for about 6 weeks, we get to see another side of her personality. Little Birdie loves to play and be active. She is bright and bubbly – full of spunk! One of her favorite things is to do is chase tennis balls and then lie in the yard and chew on the tennis ball. And Little Birdie really loves to be with her ‘people’; because of that, she may get over-excited and get mouthy or bounce & jump in the air and on you. Birdie wants to be with you so she’s learning to be gentler. A home with no small children is better for her over-excited tendencies. But Little Birdie can also be easy and quiet. She loves her belly rubs and will gladly turn over so you can give her one. She will hang out and wait patiently often keeping busy by chewing on her toys. Birdie is a big chewer so some sort of chew toy is very necessary for her. When it’s time for bed, she goes easily and stays asleep all night until potty and breakfast time. Birdie is also very potty trained! Little Birdie enjoys working on her training. She knows her basic commands of sit and wait and is learning to wait for longer periods of time. She’s a quick learn; treats and practice work wonders for her. She practices ‘sit’ and ‘wait’ at all times - to go out, to eat her food and to get her treats/toys. Birdie is easy to leave home alone. We have crated her but because she is so easy when left alone, we just put her in her room and she either plays with her toys or sleeps. She also travels in the car easily, often sitting on the floor of the back seat, trying to position herself so the sun shines in her face. Little Birdie loves everyone and she easily meets new people and is very friendly with them. She seems to be the same way with other dogs as well. When she meets people, she tends to get into a down position and gently approaches. When she gets to know you, she tends to get more excited and jumpy. Birdie has shown some resource guarding around certain toys and treats, but we have also seen improvement in this area. Because she trusts and has a bond with our family, she is not as possessive of her treats & toys and will give them up provided she receives something in return. Please call. Little Birdie is longing to be in a home with no small children. She has shown that she can get along with other dogs, but a meet & greet with your home dog is necessary as she still may be dog-selective. Little Birdie is easy and a joy to be around. She loves to snuggle and put her little head in your lap. She just wants to be loved and feel safe. Once she makes her transition into your home and builds a bond with you (which won’t take too long), you will have a new best friend for life! If you'd like to meet Lil Birdie please call the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center at 757-385-4444, or you can call or email her foster family directly at 757-373-2458/Ellenmgiordano@gmail.com Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center has wonderful pets available for adoption.

Isaac is only about a year old and is a friendly young boy who is really good on a leash when walking or jogging. He can be a bit naughty in the cage though but that's a given as he's young, energetic and needs to run around, play and learn new things. Being stuck in a cage does not allow for any of this as you well know. Isaac lets us harness him up just fine and when walking out of the kennel he is so excited! Outside he is fairly calm for such a young boy. He is manageable and listens well when on a walk. We don't know too much about him except what we learn while handling him and walking him. Besides the fact that he is a happy happy boy who makes us smile, we have found out he seems to be house trained. He had a fun time running around the barnyard with me but instead of chasing and retrieving tennis balls, he was very focused on me and being near me. He is very human orientated so following your lead will come natural to him. He is very treat motivated which will help a lot when it comes to learning new things as well. Isaac has been dog selective during his stay at the shelter so if you have another dog, please bring him or her in so we can have a meet and greet to see if they can get along. If you have children, please bring them in to meet Isaac because although he seems like he would be a great family dog, we do not know for sure if he has experience with children. We also don't know yet how he feels about cats. Right now Isaac is hanging out in the back while waiting for a space up in adoption so just come on in and ask to meet him. His id number is 1610-0839 and he will be neutered upon adoption. thank you for considering adopting! Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center has wonderful pets available for adoption. As of December 6, all animals are now at the new shelter at 341 Birdneck Road. The former shelter on Leroy Drive is now closed.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet! Hula is an adorable 2 year old, 45 pound black and white female pit mix that came to us as an owner surrender. She's a bit on the thin side and could certainly stand some groceries, but her heart is full and she's ready to find someone to share it with! Hula is an active girl with lots of energy. She knows her basic commands such as sit and down and is house trained. She loves to catch treats when thrown to her. I'm sure Hula would do wonderful with an active family that would like to put time into playing ball or running with her daily. I do not know how she is with other dogs so please bring your dogs with you if you'd like to meet this cutie so we can see if they will get along. Hula is currently living in a foster home so please call the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center at 757-385-4444 so we can put you in touch with her foster family.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet! King is looking for a new castle to land in as the one he called home has been turned upside down. He was dropped off and just left at a cousin's house. His owner never came back to get him, just never came back. King stayed at the cousin's home for a short time and then found himself here as he could no longer stay where he was. He ended up here in our shelter, another unknown scary place where he has to live in a cage. We need to find this friendly boy a new home, a new castle. He is a young adult listed as around 1 yr old and a healthy size of about 60-65 pounds. He is house trained. He is crate trained and he is good with kids! He is a friendly boy who would benefit from daily exercise and playtime as we are told he can be a silly boy. We do not know how King feels about cats, though. King is said to be good w/ other dogs and we at the shelter have walked him w/ other dogs but we have not allowed playtime just yet. He will pull a lot on the leash when he sees other dogs, possibly bc he is excited and wants to meets them. King is a handsome boy with the floppy ears that just make you smile. King is waiting in the back for a spot in adoption so just come in and ask to meet him. We would love to introduce you! He is at the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center located at 341 S Birdneck Rd in Va Beach. His id # is 1609-1672. Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center has wonderful pets available for adoption. As of December 6, all animals are now at the new shelter at 341 Birdneck Road.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet! Arriving at VBACAC as a stray our little STEPPER girl has not just stepped into our hearts but flown into them! Stepper's sweet personality, although a little timid at first, is coming out daily and she is showing how friendly, loving and playful she is. Even upon first meeting her, it is clear she wants to trust you and know you. She wants you to take her out and love on her. She wants you to give her all the attention you can give without sparing any. At our first meeting, she let me harness her up easily although she was a little wiggly knowing it was her turn to go outside. She pottied immediately which tells me she most likely is already house trained although being in the shelter, living in a cage, and only being let out certain times of the day may require a bit of a refresher course. Outside walking on the leash Stepper was a joy. She seemed to be enjoying every moment of the fresh air and being able to sniff around. She was smiling. She was good on the leash and would check back at me to make sure I was there. She was smiling...a lot! It was clear she has been exposed to walking on a leash prior to her arrival at VBAC. When we got to the barnyard, Stepper immediately started running back and forth. She is very treat motivated and would run back and forth looking for treats! Stepper kept on smiling! She is a jumper, especially for treats! She will be one you can definitely train to do tricks like maybe even turning lights on and off! She likes to jump, remember?!? When Stepper took treats from my hand, she was not the most gentle but certainly not the hardest either! A little consistency on a schedule and this girl will be even better than she already is! Stepper didn't chase after the tennis balls at all in the yard but I'm sure after a little time and patience (and treats) she can learn how to fetch. She's a smart one as she certainly proved when going to where the treats were! This happy go lucky girl is waiting at the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center for a wonderful family to fall in love with her and call her their own. Stepper is also in a special spot in the shelter, right by a kennel door. This is a special spot because there is a lot of movement of people and other dogs through the door which can drive some dogs crazy. Stepper is taking this spot in stride which may give us a hint that she might be good with other dogs. This being said, we don't yet know exactly how she feels about other dogs or cats so bring yours in (dogs only of course!) so we can have a meet and greet. We also don't yet know how she feels about children or if any exposure she has had with children was positive or not, so bring them in and we can also see how everyone responds to each other. Her id number is 1611-0572. Just ask to meet with her! Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center has wonderful pets available for adoption.
