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!

Slate is a happy medium size young adult lab/pit mix that loves to play outdoors and I was only able to get him to slow down for some sweet talking from the pretty lady that he found while outside having himself a good time! He's a very friendly young man that seems to be good with other dogs, although he pulls very hard to get to other dogs, which can be a problem if the other dog reads his signals wrong. Proper introductions will be needed for him to find the right dog friends. Please bring yours along with you so we can see if their personalities will mesh. It was very hot on the day we had him outside but he was in doggie heaven just running around, smiling and enjoying the wide open spaces. He's young. He needs to be able to run and play! It would be awesome to see him go to a family where he'll have someone to run him or play with him outside daily. If you are looking for a happy, young dog that appears to be house trained and has a love of life that shows the minute you get him outside then please stop by Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center, 341 S Birdneck Road and ask to meet Slate. He's currently in the back waiting for a spot on the adoption floor. If you stop by the front lobby and ask for him by name and/or ID# 1607-1580 we will be happy to have a caretaker bring him out to meet you and your resident dogs. Thanks for reading about Slate and for considering a shelter pup!
