Story
Hi! I'm Boogie, or Bogart if I'm in trouble... which I never am! I am a big ole cuddle bug who loves to please! I love walks and people and I bond closely to those who work with me. I know soooo many tricks and would love to show you all of them! I love snacks so much (yum cheese)! I am very nice and am not territorial or aggressive with food or toys. I like to play one way fetch, and watching the ducks play in the pond, but I am also happy to just chill and chew on my toys. My talents include having the world's floppiest ears and stealing your heart. I love to press up against my people so that they know I’m a good friend to lean on. I do so well about getting back into my kennel when I need to, and I would love a home that can give me the mental and physical enrichment that I need.

Labrador Retriever Greyhound

Female, Adult
Christiansburg, VA
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
Good with dogs, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Toolie is a very energetic and playful lab/greyhound mix. She loves cuddles and playtime and running around the yard. She is 2 years old now and is spayed and house-trained. She is happy and healthy, but unfortunately we've run into some medical problems that make it difficult for us to give her the proper attention and care she deserves. We're looking for someone with a yard and someone who's outdoorsy and active to give her a good home. She is crate trained and we have a large double-door crate we will provide to the adopter if they want/need it :)

Story
I need to surrender my 4 year old Dutch Shepherd, Rip. I do this with a very heavy heart, he is a wonderful dog and very loved. My circumstances have changed dramatically as I am going back to school and working. Rip does not get the time and attention he needs and deserves. He will do best with people who are active and love to give lots of attention. He is incredibly smart, very loyal, and very active. He knows the basic tricks, sit, stay, up, down, speak and is also crate trained. He LOVES to play fetch and will go after anything you throw. He loves ear scratches, chest rubs, and butt scratches, but is not a fan of cuddles. He is very inclined to "help" you do whatever you are doing around the house He is not good with other dogs (he gets nervous and defensive and does not share toys) and does not do well with cats either. He very much enjoys the company of people. He is up to date on his vaccinations and is taking heartworm, flea and tick prevention medicine. He is in great health!

Moose

Alaskan Malamute

Male, 3 yrs 10 mos
Christiansburg, VA
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
Not good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Goes with crate, temp scan microchip, DNA breed/health panel. Hi I’m Moose! I’m ~3 years old and spent most of my life chained up on someone’s front porch. This has lead to my anxiety around new things. I need someone who is patient, can read my body language, and respects my boundaries. I am a sweet, goofy, couch potato who loves to take naps outside. We brought Moose home ~8 months ago off the euthanasia list at an over crowded shelter. His biggest obstacle is been his anxiety. He is an amazing dog who continues to open up every day. He does well on a leash/long lead and in the house but cannot overcome his prey drive towards our cats. We muzzle and crate trained him for this reason, but it’s just not fair to him and the cats for him to stay here. We love him dearly, but believe he would thrive in a home without any small animals where we could roam free and at ease. He deserves it! Happy to do meet and greets with new dogs! He has shown no signs of being dog reactive
