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!

Drake. He's a handful. And a lap full, too. He wants to be close and steal all your kisses but then that little boy energy kicks in and he's off doing what boys do. He loves a good belly rub, but also a good game of keep away. He's a boy, 100% boy. He's going to need a family with some energy and the desire to work with him. He's a smart boy that will be fun to train. The energetic ones always are. They live to learn new things! And he's treat motivated. So who is up for a life time game of train the Drake Boy? He's going to make the right family very proud as he learns all the things that busy boys need to learn to become well balanced adults. You can do this! Drake came in to the shelter with a female dog, and we know he likes the ladies.  We arent sure yet how he feels about male dogs so if you do have a male, bring him down to the shelter and we can see how they do. Please stop by Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center, 341 S Birdneck Road. If you don't see Drake on the adoption floor just ask for him by name and ID# 1605-0160 and we will be happy to bring him out to say hello!
