My story

Rain is a silver/blue bully/lab mix girl with hazel eyes, about 1-2 years old, and ~50 lbs. She was saved from a kill shelter in NC, originally found as a stray. She is quiet and sweet with people, but she can be obnoxious and aggressive with other dogs! She needs to be the only dog (no cats, no small critters) in the household to be safe and stress free. She would be fine around older children, but probably no 'toddlers' as they could get knocked down.
She is a sweet, affectionate girl, and would be enough dog for most people. She's smart and would do well in obedience classes; She needs to learn to walk properly on a leash, as she pulls hard now. She knows some basic commands, she 's fully vetted and ready for a home. She is young and active, and needs a securely fenced yard (5-6 ft solid fence), for enough free run exercise time. She should not go to 'dog parks', but would be fine walking with a regular leash on trails. She needs to have an owner with big dog experience, and especilly bully breed experience ! Please email to schedule a meeting with Rain.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We conduct personal interviews and require adoption applications. Home visits are conducted, and references are checked. Adoption fees are $150 for dogs, and $75 for cats. All fees are used to defray the costs of vetting and caring for our animals.

Go meet their pets

We do conduct local adoption outings. We also show our dogs by appointment. We are in need of foster homes for our dogs, and accept any volunteer help. If you may be interested in providing temporary shelter and love to an animal in need, please contact us at

More about this rescue

Blue Ridge Dog Rescue is an all-volunteer, non-profit, non-euthanizing rescue based in Charlottesville, VA. We provide a safe haven for our homeless pets while they are awaiting a permanent home. They are mostly young adults, but occassionally we'll have a senior that needs a retirement home! They are saved from high-kill shelters/pounds or from owner give-up situations. While in our care, they receive a health checkup, spay/neuter, all shots, de-worming and heartworm/tick disease testing. Please check our Pets List, and contact us for a personal meeting. If you don't see exactly what you are looking for, please email us and we'll help you find that perfect pet. If you can't adopt at this time, please consider volunteering with us or sponsoring an animal.

Please note: We are busy folks and don't have "regular business hours". For this reason, we don't show the dogs until an application has been submitted. Submitting an application does not obligate you to adopt a dog, but it does tell us that your interest in adopting an animal is serious. We thank you for being considerate of our time and efforts.

We do rescue cats/kittens when the need arises, but this is not our primary function. Please contact the regular Cat Rescue groups in your area for help.
