Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Hugo is a sweet lab mix boy that is about 10-11 months old. He is good woth dogs, cats and kids. Hugo has specific requirements : adopters must have another dog as he takes his cues from and confidence from other dogs. He also must have a 6 foot fence (not chain link as he can climb it). It would be great if Hugo went to a home where someone was home most of the time, but not a requirement. He is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations and ready to go to his furever home!

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.

    • Great Dane Dog For Adoption in Virgnia Beach, VA

      Maya

      Breed: Great Dane
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Virgnia Beach, VA
      Posted Breed: Great Dane (short coat). Maya is a sweet female Dane about 3 years old. She has had her tail docked due to a case of "happy tail" that required amputation. She's great with kids and cat friendly. Maya walks great on a lead, however, she does not like other dogs so she will charge them (typically smaller dogs). We have been working with a trainer on behavior modification, and her new family will need to continue our work. Maya's ideal home is one where the family is large breed savvy. You should have a fenced yard and Maya should be the only dog, although we will consider a meet and greet with another giant breed dog that is not dominant.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Virgnia Beach, VA
      Posted Breed: Cane Corso Mastiff. Mossimo is a 3 year old Cane Corso that came to us through a boarding facility where he and his brother had been boarding for about 3 months due to their owners unstable living situation. Mo's currently in a foster home with multiple dogs and several children. He's a stable guy with a fabulous temperament. Mo is much larger than your average Cane Corso - he weighs in somewhere in the 130-140 range. If he is to be placed with other dogs, they should be close to his size as he plays a little rough for dogs half his size or smaller - he doesn't intend to hurt them, he just doesn't know how big he is. Our Mo needs playtime and attention - he loves to walk with his people but also needs some runaround time in the yard for exercise - he still has some puppy in him. His ideal home will be one with owners who are experienced with giant breeds and/or mastiff breeds. If you're interested in being considered to be Mo's next family, please put in your adoption application at www.tinyurl.com/fhradopt. His $350 adoption fee will include his neuter surgery.

      Posted Breed: Great Dane / Mixed (short coat). Cash is a black and white Great Dane who was rescued from a careless owner. This super sweet gentle giant was kept outside most of the time and is now undergoing treatment for HW+. He's been recently fixed and is going to make someone a very lucky human. An ideal home for Cash would have another dog or a person who is home most of the time to keep him company.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever. Luna was returned to us when her family PCSd to Guam. She's shy and skittish in public, but warms up on leash or in her home. Luna absolutely needs another dog in her adoptive home to ease her anxiety and to model behavior. She's a very good girl, and new families will need to be patient as they build a bond with her.

      Breed: Black and Tan Coonhound-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Virgnia Beach, VA
      Posted Breed: Black and Tan Coonhound / Mixed (short coat). This young lady was born in rescue to one of two mothers who came to us from an abandonment situation via the Suffolk Animal Care shelter. The moms are Black and Tan Coonhounds. She was treated for puppy mange, wormed and had her first and second vaccinations. She is ready to go to her fur-ever home! Adoption fee of $350 includes spay or neuter surgery between 4 and 6 months. A Little History Lesson on this pup: Eleven hounds were found in the Suffolk area abandoned, without food, water, or shelter. Two of the hounds were pregnant – in addition to being infested with worms, mange, and covered in urine scald. One of mothers was severely injured – to the point she could not stand. Understandably, these creatures were fearful of everything, having been utterly disappointed by their humans. Thankfully, a Pungo community of hunters, animal owners and lovers, Villa Lobos, and concerned citizens banded together to ensure the safety and well-being of these hounds. In addition to an abundance of donated dog food, fresh eggs, and other supplies, the residents contributed in excess of $1000 for necessities and much needed FHO surgery*. With the successful intervention of so many people working together, fourteen puppies were born at Big Sky Farms, where they were weaned and were placed in loving homes so that the mommas could continue their recovery. Eleven of those pups (female) were placed in foster homes through Fur-Ever Home Rescue at six weeks of age. These little angels have known nothing but kindness and love from dozens of caring people – animal owners, friendly neighbors, hunting enthusiasts, and social media followers. Without the combined effort of so many people, their story would be much different. *“A femoral head osteotomy, also referred to as a femoral head ostectomy or FHO, is the surgical removal of the head and neck of the femur. In simpler terms, it is the removal of the “ball” part of the ball-and-socket that makes up the hip joint. This way, the bones of the joint are no longer in contact, which eliminates the pain that is caused by the abnormal contact of the bones.” Source: http://www.topdoghealth.com/library/orthopedic-surgery/articles-surgery/femoral-head-osteotomy-fho-dogs/ Black and Tan Coonhound Information: The Black and Tan Coonhound is a breed of dog used primarily for trailing and treeing raccoons. It is a cross between the Bloodhound and the Black and Tan Virginia Foxhound. This breed has an incredible sense of smell, is adaptable, easygoing, even-tempered, gentle, lovable, and trusting – all incredible qualities favored by hunters. Breeding for purpose over aesthetics (per the strict PKC behavior rules) has eliminated many physical issues other large dogs suffer, like hip dysplasia.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Virgnia Beach, VA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). “Actually, I’ve been on hold for a while, because I was extremely underweight and ill. My foster mom has poured her heart (and lots of treats and food) into me, and now I’m a healthy 25 pounds! Check out my sleek physique! A handsome 1 year old black lab mix, I was terrified of everyone (and everything) when I arrived. Luckily, I have a super patient foster mom who has helped me overcome some of my STAGEfright (get it?). I’ve spent time at other fosters’ homes with other doggies and other kitties. I even (almost) enjoyed a car ride! I met two new people just today and was able to snuggle! I’m telling you, these ‘hoomans’ have made a new man… er… dog out of me!” Stage is still nervous around new people and situations, and he will require patience from his adopters to continue to help him build confidence. He would likely do well having another dog in the home with him. Stage's initial vet visit resulted in a positive heartworm test. He is undergoing treatment and will be neutered once he tests negative. The treatment and neuter are included in his adoption fee. Stage is also diagnosed with diabetes insipidus (DI) - an incurable condition that causes intense thirst/urine output. He is medicated for it and it does not require any special diet. A doggie door may be helpful, but he's housetrained, if not. The medication runs about $30/month.

      Posted Breed: English Bulldog / Cane Corso Mastiff / Mixed (short coat). Bravo zulu! Bravo is a 10 month old Olde English Bulldog mix. He is full of bounce and has no idea that he's 65 pounds! Bravo needs a man in his life to guide him in the right direction. Someone that has experience with his breed is preferred. Bravo is good with dogs on a case by case basis. He has a very high prey drive so absolutely no cats or small animals should share a home with him. Besides, there isn't much room left over on the couch once he's up there. Bravo has completed 5 sessions with a professional trainer and with a firm handler, has impeccable leash manners. While his previous owners reported that he was good with children, he will not be permitted to go to a home with small children.
