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!
