It is our pleasure to introduce Annabell. Annabell is a sweet lady who is looking for her furever home. She lost her previous home due to no fault of her own. While she is sad at the shelter, she doesn't let that interfere with her desire to make the best of every day she spends with us. She is so very sweet, house trained, walks nicely on a leash, and is friendly to all. She is calm,and just loves being loved. She is about 5 years young and is healthy, head to toe. She was clearly well cared for in her previous life. We believe she would step right into another home with just a bit of adjustment. She would love a soft bed, a nice walk and perhaps a doggie friend or older children to play with. A fenced in yard would be a nice perk. She would do just as well with an all adult family as she is always ready to cuddle. Please consider this lovely young lady as she has a lot of love to give for many years. She is a real find!

Location: Gloucester, VA

Sweet Coa is believed to be a purebred Rottie with the handsome good looks to match. He is about two years old. and about 88 pounds, a big boy! Coa was surrendered with his two doggie sibs a few months ago and has been at the Gloucester Animal control pound ever since. It is thought that he misses his dog friends as he gets excited an pulls but has not been aggressive. Just silly, and strong! And of course, he needs more exercise and energy draining activity. It has been a rough road for him. He doesn't understand how he has ended up without his family or his home. While here, it was determined that he had vision issues with his eye and so that was removed. While it did take him a bit to adjust, now he is back to his sweet puppy like self and really needs a new start at his new life. He is so handsome, and the absence of his eye doesn't affect that at all....he is still one good looking guy. Perhaps he could use a pirate patch? What he does need is a rescue group or a new home that is familiar and experienced with this breed, who can help him be the fantastic dog we all know he can be. While we believed he was loved, he never learned his manners, so he is a diamond in the rough. The right person can help him turn around and he deserves this chance. He is smart and willing to learn. He is likely housebroken, will walk on a leash and takes treats gently. He sits on a dime! And is polite when he is given his food bowl. He needs a bigger place....perhaps a fenced yard as well as someone who will give him the exercise and interaction he needs. Could you be that person?

Location: Henrico, VA

Rio is a 2 and 1/2 year old male Pit bull terrier. He is an absolute love bug! He loves everyone he meets, and he is eager and quick to learn. He is an angel on a leash and happy outside, but what he really wants to be doing is laying around with his people all day! He hasn't had basic obedience training but is a very quick learner and picking up all of that now. He was housed with another un neutered male dog and began fighting with that dog (a 150 lb Rottweiler), which is why was surrendered. For that reason, he should go to a home without other dogs. In the right home, Rio will continue to progress into a lovely and loyal companion. He has been recently vetted, neutered and is up to date on all vaccines and parasite testing.

Isabella is a small pure white pittie girl.She is as beautiful as her name. She went thru a couple of other names till we found the one we felt suited her....she is bella or beautiful inside and out. She hasn't always had an easy life but doesn't let that dampen her sweet spirit and loving nature. While she gets along with most dogs, she would really treasure a home of her very own. If you have other calm dogs, she will likely do well but would need a meet and greet to be sure all were agreeable. She always moves in for sweet snuggles, walks well on leash, is likely housebroken, and gives the nicest gentle kisses. She wants so much to have a family of her own. We have quickly fallen in love with her and always have extra treats just for her. Please consider giving this most deserving and precious soul her dream home. You will not be disappointed.

Location: Othello, WA

Guessing about 2 years old, Boost was found in the streets looking in a homes front window. Animal control called him over and he came running and got into the car with a little boost. The city he was found in has a "pit ban". He has fighting marks on him and a possible broken nose. He loves people and loves cuddling close and tucking his head into you. He has a very high prey drive and needs to be an only animal. Appears to be a pure American Pit Bull Terrier and acts as one. Rides well in the car and has anxiety when confined in a cage. Will be fixed, micro chipped and is started on vaccines.

Koby is just plain adorable. He is a small and solid bully mix. When he looks up at you, he wiggles all over with just the excitement of getting your attention. Koby was given up through no fault of his own, they simply didn't want him any more. Koby has not let this dampen his spirits and looks forward to a new and loving furever home. He is likely housebroken but may need a bit of a refresher having been in the pound. Koby walks well on leash and is very excited to be out and about with the volunteers. He gets along well with the other dogs.He can be tested with cats. He is a beautiful fawn color, and is healthy in every way. Did I mention he is adorable? We believe he would love a family where he could either go for long walks or have a fenced yard where he can wander around, check out the surroundings and play a game of fetch. He likes his toys and his kong. He could also be your best friend while lying next to you on the couch or maybe a nice soft bed.He is young and smart and ready for his new life. Please consider sharing your life with this wonderful dog....he is ready to be your new BFF!

Bella Boo is a sweet girl who is affectionate and loves to give kisses. She listens well and loves her crate. She enjoys being outside and will do well in a fenced in yard (minimum 5 feet) with a doghouse when her owners are away from home. She enjoys exercises and has recently learned to run next to her person for up to 3 miles. Bella Boo is in need of a forever home now that her former owner has passed away. Still looking for an adopter of foster for Bella Boo. Would love to find someone who has the time and patience to help her through the trauma she experienced losing her owner suddenly. She may do best in a home where she is the only dog, at least initially. She has spent time with and gotten long with other dogs, but with everything she has gone through, she is still a bit fearful and uncertain about things.

Know what my favorite Christmas song is? Jingle Bella, Jingle Bella, Jingle Bella rock! Hi, I’m Bella and I’m hoping you, dear reader, might be the one to open your heart and home to a lonely, homeless doggo in need. For Christmas, I’d love to be snuggling with your kiddos next to the fireplace instead of forlornly looking in through the window for another whole year.

I am a Dutch Shepherd mix and I’m probably around four years old. I weigh around 55 pounds, but most of that is in my super shapely, athletic legs. I’m hoping to find someone who might take me running with them, but I’m also okay with long daily walks or even just a fenced in yard. And I’ve got some great news since you’re already 100% sure you want to adopt me- I come fully trained! That’s right, I’m house trained, crate trained, and even leash trained (as long as you use the right kind of collar)!

It takes me several minutes to warm up to new people, so I’m hoping that I can find an owner with enough patience and understanding to help me learn that strangers can become friends quickly. And no worries, this counts for kiddos, too! Once I know they are nice, I’m ready to recruit them into my genuine best friend army. I am able to live with other dogs as long as they are calm and respectful, but I cannot live with cats.

If you are looking for an energetic, intelligent dog to tag along for jogs, walks, car rides, hikes, or even naps on the couch, you are looking for me, Bella! To adopt me, visit THIS LINK to apply online. If you have more questions about my training or behavior, feel free to message The Balanced Dog, LLC.

Choirs here! After months of rehearsals with a dedicated dog trainer, I think I’m ready to find a new audience in my very own forever home. Before Smiles Forever Animal Rescue saved me, I spent most of my life in a shelter, becoming increasingly miserable as each day went by. The rescue hired The Balanced Dog to fix what they thought was dog aggression. Turns out, I just don’t like being caged and I’m not dog aggressive at all. Good news for you since you’re already in love with me!

I currently live in a house with well-behaved dogs of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds but I have to admit, all that time spent in the shelter really stunted my emotional growth and I’m learning very slowly how to interact with other dogs. I do great with well-trained dogs, but if antagonized or bullied, I’m not sure how I’d react. I have not been cat-tested and my trainer believes I likely wouldn’t do well around them. I have no food aggression issues and I’m great with the dog trainer’s kiddo.

I walk great on a leash with the right collar and I’m very well crate trained. I haven’t ever had an accident in my trainer’s house (pretty impressive for a two year old doggo if I do say so myself).

After years of isolation, the thing I love most in the world is to be around people. I have no bite history or aggression issues with humans of any shape or size. Now, I am very young and playful, so I might knock a smaller child down by accident. I mean heck, I do weigh 50 lbs and that might be a lot of dog for a young child to handle.

If you are looking for a young, active dog to suit your young and active lifestyle, you are looking for me, Choirs! To apply to adopt, please visit https://www.smilesforeveranimalrescue.org/apply-now.html to download an adoption contract. You can also message The Balanced Dog, LLC with any further questions about my extensive training!

Hi friends, I’m Somaya and I’m here to share my Christmas wish with you: a real, true forever home complete with matching forever family and forever couch (will settle for a recliner or even a nice doggy bed)! I know that’s a big wish, but I’m holding out for it because I’ve been a good girl this year. I’ve gotten loads of training and guidance from a very skilled dog trainer and I’m so ready to find a family to impress with my good behavior.

I’m around five years old and I weigh around 55 lbs, so you don’t have to worry about any of the garden variety puppy stuff with me. That’s right, I’m already house trained and crate trained! I’m also great at leash walking as long as you use the right kind of collar. An added bonus- I’m also great with kiddos! So if your little hooman needs a role model or a naptime buddy, sign me up!

My trainer feels that I would thrive in a home where I would either get regular daily walks or be allowed to play off leash in a safe, fenced-in yard. I am not a very high energy dog, but I do need to be exercised daily (just a regular leashed walk will do) because it helps me with my separation anxiety. Personally, I’m hoping to find a family where someone might be able to spend a lot of time at home with me because I am still reconciling some issues with separation anxiety. Hopefully this doesn’t count me out of your home, but I do need to go somewhere where there are no other pets.

If you are looking for an low energy, happy go lucky, kid-friendly doggo to complete your family, you are looking for me, Somaya! To apply to adopt me, visit THIS LINK and apply online. If you have further questions about my personality or training, feel free to message The Balanced Dog, LLC.

Harper is a sweet American Stafford mix with cute black and white spots all over. This beautiful girl is about one year old and was brought into our shelter as a stray. She is sweet but can be quite the handful at times. Harper's got a lot of energy and can be jumpy and little nippy at times. She just needs some training and obedience work. She will often settle down for walks outside which she really enjoys; she loves being able to go outside and explore.

Grimace is up to date on shots, heartworm negative, neutered, and microchipped! He is a bully mix about a year old. He was just a stray and so we don't know about his history. Grimace is a sweet boy but he is very timid. He is good with us at the shelter but will shut down with strangers. He has slowly been overcoming his fear of leashes and works with K9 adventure every week to help overcome his fears outside the shelter. Grimace is very gentle and sweet to those he is familiar with. He is a great dog that needs to go to the right home with someone who is willing to be patient and work with him. Grimace would do really well in a home with other dogs, he thrives when he is part of a pack!
