Story
Woof woof! Hi there, I'm Bandit, and I'm ready to steal your heart! I might be a 3-year-old dog, but I've got enough energy and enthusiasm to keep up with the most spirited playtimes. My unique mix of breeds gives me a one-of-a-kind look that's sure to make you smile. ๐ŸŽพ Favorite Activity: Tennis Ball Extraordinaire When it comes to tennis balls, I'm like a detective on a mission. I'll track that ball down no matter where you throw it! Chasing, catching, and fetching tennis balls is my specialty, and I guarantee I'll provide you with endless entertainment. ๐Ÿก Ideal Home: Only Pet Paradise Now, I must admit, I love being the star of the show. I'm not a big fan of sharing the spotlight with other animals, so I'd thrive as the only pet in your home. Don't worry, thoughโ€”I've got enough love and loyalty to go around! ๐Ÿถ Guardian of Love: Protectively Devoted When I find that special someone to call my own, I become the most loyal and protective companion you could ever wish for. I'll stand by your side through thick and thin, making sure you're safe and sound. Just think of me as your four-legged guardian angel! ๐Ÿงธ Toy Time: Resourceful with Toys I've got a little quirk when it comes to toysโ€”I tend to guard my treasures like a true bandit. But don't worry, with some patience and gentle guidance, I'm sure we can work on this together. Let's turn those guarded moments into heartwarming bonding opportunities. For this reason, I need to go to a home with no children. ๐Ÿ  Adoption Promise: Unconditional Love If you're looking for a faithful friend who's always up for an adventure and a game of fetch, I'm your guy. I promise to shower you with tail wags, cuddles, and endless affection. My love is as boundless as my energy! So, what do you say? Are you ready to welcome Bandit, the tennis ball-loving, resource-guarding (with a touch of playfulness), one-and-only dog into your heart and home? If you're looking for a loyal companion to share life's ups and downs, I'm here, ready to be your best friend. Let's start this exciting journey together! ๐Ÿถโค๏ธ๐ŸŽพ

๐Ÿพ Meet Kade: A Resilient Pup Looking for a Loving Home ๐Ÿพ Hey there, dog lovers! Allow us to introduce you to the bravest tail-wagger you'll ever meet โ€“ Kade! Despite the challenges life has thrown his way, Kade's spirit remains unbroken, and his heart is full of love waiting to be shared. Kade, a 9-month-old bundle of fur and joy, has already weathered more storms than most pups his age. At just 3 months old, he faced a daunting setback when he suffered a broken jaw. But let us tell you, this pint-sized warrior took it all in stride, showing us his remarkable determination to overcome adversity. With the help of dedicated veterinarians and a heart full of puppy resilience, he powered through his recovery and emerged with an even stronger spirit. Then, at 7 months old, Kade faced yet another hurdle when he was hit by a car. While the incident left him with visible scars, it also showcased his unbreakable spirit and his undeniable zest for life. Despite the challenges, Kade's spirit wasn't dampened โ€“ if anything, it burned brighter. His courage and optimism are truly an inspiration. Now, at 9 months old, Kade is ready to embark on a new chapter โ€“ one filled with love, laughter, and endless tail wags. He's a social butterfly, making friends with everyone he meets โ€“ whether they have two legs or four. Kade's energy is infectious, and his playful antics will keep you smiling all day long. This resilient pup is looking for a forever home that can match his enthusiasm for life. He's the perfect companion for someone who understands that a dog's past doesn't define their future. Kade's journey has only made him more compassionate and ready to shower his new family with endless affection. Are you ready to open your heart and home to a dog who knows the true meaning of resilience? Kade is more than a survivor โ€“ he's a shining example of how love and determination can conquer all. If you're ready to give Kade the loving home he truly deserves, don't hesitate to reach out adoptions@angelsofassisi.org.

Story
Cain is ohhh sooo sweet, just like Sugar Cane. He has a wonderful temperment! Cain is good with dogs and currently lives with as many as 10 dogs in his foster home, tested well with cats but did try to sneak up on one so maybe no for cats, friendly with all people, and we'd suspect he'd be great with children as well. He tested positive for HW and has been going through treatment since September. He can certainly go to a new home in the meantime, but we will continue his heartworm treatment until it is complete. He also has a heart murmur which we are monitoring through the heartworm treatment. You don't want to miss out on this Sugar Cane! He would love to be a hospice foster for someone looking for loving companionship.September 18, 2023, 12:05 am

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Nirvana is an itty bitty Pitty girl! She was originally brought in to the shelter as part of a neglect/ animal cruelty case. Many of you were kind enough to share her post and donate towards the care of Nirvana and two other dogs from this horrible situation. Nirvana is now healthy (except of one sore on her back hip that is still healing), spayed, and vaccinated. She is heartworm negative as well. Nirvana will greet you with so much excitement that her whole body wiggles. She is so full of love and just needs someone to focus it all on. Nirvana would be best suited as an only pet, though we aren’t ruling out doggy meet and greets. She has been starved, and is now understandably very protective of her food. For this reason, Nirvana would need to be fed away from any other animals. For more information please call the Bedford County Animal Shelter at 540-586-7690. To be preapproved to adopt, please fill out an application in the link provided https://friendsofbedfordcountyanimalshelter.rescuegroups....

Here's a little about me: ๐Ÿถ Solo Star: The Only Pet You'll Ever Need I'm looking for a home where I can be the center of your universe, without any other furry companions to share the spotlight. I'm ready to shower you with all the love and attention you'll ever need. ๐Ÿก Tranquil Territory: Peaceful Oasis Preferred I thrive in a calm and quiet environment. A home with minimal visitors and a serene atmosphere would be the perfect backdrop for our journey together. ๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ Guardian Instincts: Resourceful Protector of Loved Ones I have a strong sense of guarding the people I hold dear.
