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!

Beatriz is a stout lady that is almost perfect in appearance with her cute head tilt, floppy ear and gorgeous blue coat! Can i just say it's a good thing she's cute because she's strong willed and kinda does what she wants to know, like most pretty girls. Anyways, she's smart, she's got her commands down. She can sit, go into a down and roll over. She's also house trained and super silly! She runs like a freight train speeding down the track straight at you, but luckily she will change direction before she runs into you. She loves to play in the barnyard, but she doesn't seem to understand the fetch game. She just runs to be running. Oh, and she snorts. She really is easy to love, even with her rough around the edges side. Beatriz pulls on her leash, and she's no lightweight, so be aware if you are looking for a dog to do leisurely walks with that she will need leash training. She's also a bit of a brat when it comes to other dogs. She likes who she likes and she tends to be reactive when she's around them. She is going to be a great dog for someone to bond with over training. She's got the basics down, and she loves treats, so it's just going to take time and someone willing to not give up on her. If you think that might be you then please come and meet Beatriz soon at Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center, 341 S Birdneck Road. She's waiting to make your acquaintance now in the medium dog adoption room. If you don't see her when you come in just ask for her by name and/or ID# 1608-0875 and we will be happy to bring her out to say hello! Thanks for considering adoption!
