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!
Bulbasaur had a family. He lived in a home. He had lots of doggie friends and was good with them. He had shelter. He had a little food. But there were many things he was missing. He was missing a warm and comfortable shelter. He was missing enough food to keep his tummy filled. He was missing love on a daily basis. You see, our Bulbasaur was used as a breeding dog. He was kept around only to make puppies. He did not get daily love. He did not get daily TLC. We can say this because it seemed although he was fed, it was clear the food was never enough for a big growing boy. Bulbasaur was very very thin, in definite need of some nourishment and much more than he had been used to. When he was surrendered to us, it seemed his previous owner decided Bulbasaur was no longer any use for him. Was it because Bulbasaur was no longer a young adult but instead a full fledged adult estimated to be around 5-8 years old? Since arriving on our doorstep at VBAC, Bulbasaur has been only the best! He is friendly and loving and good on a leash! He seems to still like other dogs and regardless of how he was treated in his previous home, he seems to be willing to accept all people as his new friends. His trust and confidence is awesome. His happy-go-lucky-ness is contagious. He is a silly boy who does not yet know how to play with toys or tennis balls but he does still love a good yard to run around in. Bulbasaur has proven to be a good walking or running partner so if you enjoy long walks along the beach or hiking in the mountains, Bulbasaur might be the one you need! Bulbasaur seems to be house trained but even if he is not perfect, he has shown he really wants to please his people so a refresher course on house training will be swift and effective. Although Bulbasaur came from a home with lots of other dogs, we think they all might have been his own puppies so please bring any resident dog in for a meet and greet to be sure they get along. As mentioned earlier, Bulbasaur came into the shelter very very thin and because of this he can be very grabby with food or treats. In other words, he can accidentally get your finger instead of the treat. This is something any potential adopter should be aware of so they can work on softening his taking of treats or food. Who can blame this boy for trying to get food as fast as he can when he clearly came from a home where food was scarce. Having said this, Bulbasaur would be better with older respectful children or in an adult home. Bulbasaur is a really good boy who would make a great companion. He is one you could take for car rides and on family vacations. Bulbasaur is ready to find a new home where he is a part of the family and not just an outsider left in a crate, in the yard or used as a money making machine. He is a sweet and friendly boy, easy-going, and ready to settle in with a new loving family. He is waiting at the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center located at 341 S Birdneck Rd in Va Beach. He is in the back kennel so you just have to ask to meet him and someone will bring him out to you. His id number is 1607-0761.
