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.)” Truckn is a boy Rene Descartes might just be describing with his famous quote. Truckn is a big gray and white boy who has been described by his foster mom as one who thinks. She describes Truckn as a philosopher. He is quiet and contemplates his environment. He looks, he sees, he evaluates. Truckn 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, Truckn is quiet and easy going. He does seem to enjoy being around his three female doggie step-foster siblings but he especially loves being around his foster mom and dad. He just enjoys hanging out with them. Truckn enjoys a good sun bath in the back yard and daily walks which, can I remind you that he is really good on the leash. Truckn is an easy boy to hang out with for sure! Like any good doggie boy or girl, Truckn 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 and not just have a hand thrown in his face. He will very clearly let the hand know it is not YET welcome. 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 Truckn until and unless they say it’s ok and have told the approaching stranger how to let Truckn meet. That’s what Truckn needs. He needs to do it on his own terms and no one else’s. That’s what philosophers do, right? They do things, they think on their own terms in their own time. Truckn 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 Truckn so potential adopters should know to keep inside gates away. But that’s ok bc Truckn is a good boy who can be left alone to roam free in a home without any worries. Truckn 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. 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!
