Story
This was my Valentine’s Day gift to myself @ 6 weeks. Kash is sweet and playful. He is now 2 years old (DOB JANUARY 3). He stays in my home at night but all day he runs through the back yard to get exercise. The down side is that there is not much time to give him the attention he really needs. This is my first time owning a bigger dog than normal. Financially it can be a bit much. So i decided i need to do what’s best for Kash to rehome him to someone who can fit his daily needs of more time. This has been a battle of im making right decision but it is.

Story
Buster Brown is an approximately 1-year-old American Bulldog mix who recently joined Henrico Humane and is ready for adoption. What we know so far is that he's a big boy with a big personality. This 56-lb hunk of love is energetic, playful with other dogs, and affectionate with humans. He absolutely loves to give kisses. We will continue to update his information as we get to know him better, so keep watch! This sweet dog is in need of an immediate foster home, where he can get comfortable and show us more of his character. Buster Brown is currently heartworm positive, so he needs a foster or adopter who will keep up with his treatment (through April 12th; paid for by Henrico Humane). During this time, his activity needs to be kept to a minimum. if you'd like to join our amazing network of fosters, please reach out to us at foster@henricohumane.org or put in a foster application at https://www.henricohumane.org/foster/. Or, if you're able to open your home permanently to Buster Brown, please apply online today at www.henricohumane.org/adopt-a-dog or email any questions you may have about Buster Brown to dogs@henricohumane.org.

Story
Location: Scottsville, VAMy name is Roscoe. What's yours? I’m a happy, sweet guy and they say I’m a bulldog mix around 7-8 years of age. I love car rides, running, playing with toys and back scratches! I’m also crate trained, sleep through the night and know basic commands like sit and lie down! Do you like going on long walks? I love them! I love human companions, snuggling and kisses. I just wish I had a family of my own. Volunteers here at Finally Home love playing with me and taking me on hikes! Due to the fact that I wasn’t properly socialized as a younger dog, other animals scare and confuse me so I’m dog selective and need to be the only animal in the home. It’s not my fault but it’s held me back as I have been searching for my forever home for over a year. I hope that there is still the perfect person out there looking for a special dog like me to love! Roscoe is: *UTD on shots *Neutered *Current on flea and tick and heartworm medication.

Story
Hi there, I’m Tommy, a 4-year-old, 60 lb., American Bulldog mix. I have a handsome white coat with a brown left ear that makes me stand out from the crowd. I’m a friendly and loyal boy who loves people and attention. I came from Miami-Dade, Florida in 2020, thanks to Operation Save a Shelter Dog. They rescued me from the streets when I was very skinny and hungry, and a big storm was coming. They gave me a second chance at life and I’m so grateful for that. I’m a smart and obedient boy who knows basic commands and walks well on a leash. I’m also crate-trained and housebroken. I love treats and I’m very food motivated, which helps motivate me when training. I’m always eager to please my humans and get praised for being a good boy. I have some issues with other animals, though. Because of my past, I can be reactive to other dogs. I’ve been working on this, and I can tolerate dogs in small doses, but I need slow and careful introductions. I also have a strong prey drive, so I can’t live with small dogs, cats, or other critters. I need to be your only pet, please. I also guard my food, so I eat in my crate where I can feel safe. I’m fine with treats, though. I’m good with older children who I can goof around with that will also play nicely with me. I love to goof around and have fun. I need a home with a savvy handler who can give me a job, practice my training, help me feel safe, and grow my confidence. I’m up to date on vaccines, neutered, and in great health. I’m currently being fostered in Hampton, VA, but I can be transported out of state for the right home. If you are interested in adopting me, complete an application today! I can’t wait to meet you and start our new adventure together. *Must be 21 or older to apply.

Story
Hi, I’m Walter, a handsome and loyal American Bulldog. I’m 13 years old and was born on February 18, 2010. I weigh 55 lbs. and am white and brown in color. I’m looking for my forever home where I can be your faithful and loving companion. I’m a sweet and gentle boy who loves his humans with his whole heart. I’m potty trained, crate trained, and leash trained, and I know basic training cues. I have great house manners and I’m non-destructive and quiet. I can stay loose in the house when home alone, or sleep in my crate. I will even go in the crate on my own throughout the day if you leave the door open. I love to relax on the couch with you or take a stroll through the park. I’m your guy and I want to be by your side. I’m a special boy who needs a lower-traffic household where I can relax during my golden years. I’m good with older children (over 13 recommended), cats, and even ducks and other fowl, but I will guard my kids against people I don’t know. I am not dog-aggressive but I can become possessive in a home environment and can have behavioral issues if not managed correctly. My rescue does not recommend a home with other dogs unless the other dog in the home is balanced, the same size as me or bigger, and the human has a good amount of experience with pack dynamic and dog body language. Overall, I try to hog all the attention for myself. Therefore, I need structure and discipline so that I can follow house guidelines and not try to rule the roost myself. I hope you can understand and help me to mind my manners. I’m a great dog with so much love to give and I deserve someone who will give me the same back in return. I’m neutered, vaccinated, and treated for heartworms, so I’m healthy and happy. I’m currently in Wakefield, VA, but I can be transported if you’re the one for me. If you are interested in me, please fill out an application and my rescue will be in touch if we’re a match. I can’t wait to meet you! *Must be 21 or older to apply.

Story
Hazel is a 3-year-old, 77 lbs, American Bulldog. She is crate and potty-trained. Hazel is current on all vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. Her temperament is super sweet. She will sit for you on command to go out the front door, and she will sit before coming back in, once she calms down. She is extremely playful and does not have a mean bone in her body. She does have a high prey drive so you use be very strong to walk her. It is best that you let her run in a fenced yard and chase to her heart's content. Leash training is recommended as she is very strong. Hazel needs to be crated when she’s not supervised because she will chew anything and that could be very dangerous for her. Not recommended to live with small children due to her size. If interested in adopting please fill out an application at operationsaveashelterdog.org. The adoption fee is $250.
