Elijah's Story...
Elijah is a gorgeous Black Brindle male Cane Corso. Right now he is only 68 lbs but is roughly 25 to 30 lbs underweight. He is soooooooooooooo sweet. He rides great in the car and goes right into his kennel when he needs to. Elijah was rescued from a high kill shelter in North Carolina after being adopted and returned when the adopter took him to the vet and found out that he was heart worm positive. Elijah has now completed his heatrtworm treatment and his looking for the right forever home. He is extremely sweet and loves to play. He is good with dogs, people and even loves the kitties!!!
1/20/2012 Elijah went in to be neutered today. He will have his heart worm treatment tomorrow.
1/21/2012 Elijah went in for his heartworm treatment today. He was on a protocal where he recieved two large doses of treatment in the same day and will be supervised over the course of the next two days to ensure that he continues to do well.
1/26/2012 Elijah had to go back into the vet today as his staples came out of his incision where he was neutered. He has been put onto antibiotics and is doing well.
2/5/2012 Elijah made his way into John and Tracy's home. He is now in foster care in Virginia Beach after a long transport from Charlotte North Carolina. He warmed right up to myself and Lori. He now has a foster sister, Zoe and Bullmastiff mix and is having a blast in his foster home. We will continue to update on his progress as he moves along over the course of this next month!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elijah, a Virginia Beach Cane Corso dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cane Corso for sale in Virginia Beach, or seeking a Cane Corso dog from a breeder in Virginia Beach.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Virginia Beach already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Virginia Beach breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cane Corso breeders who help with Cane Corso rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Virginia Beach paves the way for another one to be saved.
