Handsome Beau is a special pup that just needs a different place in life away from a sibling that he has grown up with and lives in his shadow.  This Shepherd mix boy is a mere 11 months old and weighs just 38 pounds.  He is a reserved dog in some ways and in other ways is open to the world and embraces life with a really happy attitude.  When you say the word smart about a dog then you are definitely defining Beau and his ability to learn commands and tricks in an instant; just a snap of the finger and Beau 'gets it'.  Beau has been raised with young and active children and his dog sibling that has perhaps overshadowed some of Beau's best traits and development in life.  He is truly a dog that needs to be with a family of older children or an active couple who will not be having young children for a long time...or least not in Beau's lifetime.  He is fine with and nice to them, but the current family has determined he would be happier without all the activity and craziness that the young crowd brings.  He likes his space and quiet time better.  He is great with other dogs, loves to swim, is a great outdoorsy type of dog that loves to hike or run.  He chases balls and sticks with a great deal of enjoyment and he is great on a leash for a leisurely afternoon walk.  Beau needs and owner who is willing to make him feel comfortable and let him play with other dogs.  He is a social dog and craves the play time.  He is very good and respectful of other dogs and would mix well with another family dog, but would be best with a family that does not have young active children.   PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or

About Critter Companion Rescue- Richmond VA

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of dedicated rescue people who want to save as many dogs and cats from the local shelters before they are euthanized. On the average....there are only 1 out of 10 animals that get adopted from a shelter. We are dedicated to helping increase pet adoptions by offering a shelter animal a foster home to go to while awaiting an adoptive family to find them on our Petfinder website. Won't you please adopt a shelter animal? Or won't you please help us foster a shelter animal while we are looking for their perfect home? What a gift you can give a dog or cat by giving them a place to feel safe and secure....a forever home or a foster home. Won't you help us at Critter Companion Rescue give them a chance to have a life?
