1606-1513 Levo's Story...
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!
It's hard to pin down LEVO's most heart warming trait. She frenziedly sprints to chase balls but never brings them back. She eagerly meets every new person she sees and then aligns herself asking for a scratch on her back. She understands sit, down and stay and gives the cutest puppy looks whenever you ask her to do so. Her shiny black coat makes her 'outshine' in the looks department. She has so many things going for her! LEVO is remarkably treat motivated so training her isn't an ordeal. Even though she can get extremely possessive about her toys, a tiny treat is all it takes to make her drop it. She is acutely focused during the weekly training sessions I conduct with her, until somebody walks into the room. Then she just wants to meet that person, and get her belly rubbed - something she can never have enough of. Often times l spend what seems like a lifetime smothering her with kisses and scratching her back, and she just stands there wagging her tail wildly, waiting for me to stop the outpour of love.
LEVO is one curious soul - always looking around her, sniffing everything on her way, enthusiastic to meet every living soul we cross on our walks - be it a squirrel or a dog. There's never a dull moment in her life! She seems to be dog selective though and might do best as the only dog. If you are ready to give this young-pup-at-heart pit mix your last name in return of a lifetime supply of love and entertainment, drop by at the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Shelter today! LEVO is currently in the back waiting for a spot in adoption so if you don't see her, please just ask to meet her. Her id number is 1606-1513. Thank you for considering adoption!
