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! LITTLE BIRDIE is available for adoption through Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center (VBACAC). Currently, she is in an off-site foster home where she is settling in very well. Little Birdie was found as a stray and picked up by VBACAC in November 2016. No prior history information available. Little Birdie was fairly quiet at the shelter and now that Birdie’s been in a home setting for about 6 weeks, we get to see another side of her personality. Little Birdie loves to play and be active. She is bright and bubbly – full of spunk! One of her favorite things is to do is chase tennis balls and then lie in the yard and chew on the tennis ball. And Little Birdie really loves to be with her ‘people’; because of that, she may get over-excited and get mouthy or bounce & jump in the air and on you. Birdie wants to be with you so she’s learning to be gentler. A home with no small children is better for her over-excited tendencies. But Little Birdie can also be easy and quiet. She loves her belly rubs and will gladly turn over so you can give her one. She will hang out and wait patiently often keeping busy by chewing on her toys. Birdie is a big chewer so some sort of chew toy is very necessary for her. When it’s time for bed, she goes easily and stays asleep all night until potty and breakfast time. Birdie is also very potty trained! Little Birdie enjoys working on her training. She knows her basic commands of sit and wait and is learning to wait for longer periods of time. She’s a quick learn; treats and practice work wonders for her. She practices ‘sit’ and ‘wait’ at all times - to go out, to eat her food and to get her treats/toys. Birdie is easy to leave home alone. We have crated her but because she is so easy when left alone, we just put her in her room and she either plays with her toys or sleeps. She also travels in the car easily, often sitting on the floor of the back seat, trying to position herself so the sun shines in her face. Little Birdie loves everyone and she easily meets new people and is very friendly with them. She seems to be the same way with other dogs as well. When she meets people, she tends to get into a down position and gently approaches. When she gets to know you, she tends to get more excited and jumpy. Birdie has shown some resource guarding around certain toys and treats, but we have also seen improvement in this area. Because she trusts and has a bond with our family, she is not as possessive of her treats & toys and will give them up provided she receives something in return. Please call. Little Birdie is longing to be in a home with no small children. She has shown that she can get along with other dogs, but a meet & greet with your home dog is necessary as she still may be dog-selective. Little Birdie is easy and a joy to be around. She loves to snuggle and put her little head in your lap. She just wants to be loved and feel safe. Once she makes her transition into your home and builds a bond with you (which won’t take too long), you will have a new best friend for life! If you'd like to meet Lil Birdie please call the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center at 757-385-4444, or you can call or email her foster family directly at 757-373-2458/ Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center has wonderful pets available for adoption.
