Simba is a super chill boy and kinda seems like he would be a couch potato. He is very sweet and goes out in playgroup with other dogs. He isn't as playful but does get along well with others. Simba is boarding with us through another rescue called Pet Rescue Alliance. When we got him, we were told that he had a fear of men. Since being with us, he has done great with any guy that we have introduced him to. He does great on a leash and knows his basic obedience commands. This guy will really make someone happy!

She is a very loving and snuggly dog who wants to be the center of your world. She does amazing in her crate, that’s where she is at night and while we are at work and she is housebroken. With all this being said, she is also very nervous and fearful around men and some strangers. It took her a couple of days to get comfortable with my fiancé and now they are inseparable . She will take a lot of love and patience and proper introductions to new humans. She has loved all the women she’s met, its just the men that takes her a bit to warm up to. She has not been around kids so it might be best to have her around kids who are 13 or older, she can sometimes be a bull in a china shop when it comes to excitement. When she gets very excited she does have a habit of jumping that we have been working on as well. She should also be the only pet as she is also very jealous and reactive around other dogs and has a prey drive, so no cats or small animals. She resides now with an older and very docile dog friend and I believe that down the road, she may do well at home with a very calm and docile dog friend if they have a proper introduction. Once she has your trust, she is just a pure love bug and is very easy going. She loves her toys and she will go from running around playing to snuggling in an instant. She will let you trim her nails with ease, give her a bath , pick her up, etc. For the time we’ve had her, she has no signs of resource guarding or any of that behavior.

Hi! Hey! Whatcha doin? This is Jazzy and I am one happy go lucky girl. My name suits me as I sparkle with personality. As you can see from my pictures, I have an expression for every situation and am sure to bring a smile to your face. I have been here at the local pound for a while now, but I don't let it get me down. I know there is a perfect home for me out there and the folks here at the pound and I are determined to find it. Could it be you? I love to play and be with my peeps, learn new things to do and get lots of exercise. We could do it together! A girl needs her exercise....I am very smart and would love to learn more . I walk pretty well on a leash but being in this pound situation, I don't get out much. I get so excited when it's my turn that I jump and bark and pull, but I do get better once I am out and have done some biz. I would need your help with that, so I would love a hooman who has some experience with us bullies. One thing I do love is to play with a sprinkler, or to just stand under a spraying hose. Oh, so refreshing in the hot weather.

I am dog selective, which means some dogs I really like, but others just rub me the wrong way so I will need to meet any other dogs who are in the family circle. But then, I would also love to be the only furry family member. I can take in all that love and attention, and give it back to you in huge amounts. I am up to the challenge of being your furever friend. Really!

Although I am currently in the county pound, the adoption process is administered by the Gloucester Matthews Humane Society, so please contact Brooke to come meet me. Her email is gro.yteicosenamuhmg@tnemecalplamina

I am so looking forward to meeting you and taking that first step to a new and wonderful life for both of us. Hope to see you soon!

Hi there, the name is Pete! Have you ever met anyone whose name was Pete that wasn't a great guy? Well, that's me..one great guy! I have been at the pound a few weeks and have made friends with everyone here. I came from a family that could no longer take care of me, so they gave me up so I could find a new good home. The people here have a lot of kind and good things to say about me. Since I am a quiet and modest fella , I will let them tell you more.

Pete has woven his way into many hearts during his time here at the pound. While he is quite a big boy, you would never know it by his easy and calm demeanor. He rarely pulls on leash, but if he does, he listens well and takes correction easily. He is very housebroken and so sometimes what appears to be pulling is simply his wanting to do his biz. Very housebroken. He is grateful for every kindness offered, and responds with sweet smiles and loving gestures. His beautiful dark eyes seem to see into your soul and show you his as well. He greets the other dogs calmly and with a gently wagging tail.

He takes treats gently and loves his peanut butter kongs.

Pete is clearly a lap dog in training, and would love to go walking, playing and then curl up on the couch with you to watch the game, or a movie, all the while taking in a nice ear scratch. He does have some skin irritation, but is improving with healthy food and supplements....

It would be nice for him to have access to a fenced in yard, since he is conscientious about his daily habits and he does like to explore and sniff. But of course, a nice walk would work too.

Although Pete is here with us at the pound, adoptions are administered by Gloucester Mathews Humane Society, just around the corner. Your contact if you would like to know more is Brooke.... gro.yteicosenamuhmg@tnemecalplamina

If you are a big dog person, looking for easy care and move in ready, this is the boy for you. Even if you aren't a big dog person, Pete might just change your mind! He is a love bug!

UPDATE:
Our cutie pie, Bubbs, is still with us after more than 100 days. He is anxious to find himself a new and furever home, and we are anxious to help him do just that. He is one of the most deserving boys we have ever met. He is a striking shiny black, and is on the smaller side for his breed. He also has the cutest puggish face. He does tend to be dog selective, but also has his buddies.

Bubbs loves people and will lean into the gate to get as close to you as possible to get a nice scratch, and perhaps a nice treat.

He gives sweet kisses readily, and loves to go for walks. He is housebroken, and so when he first gets out, he does pull even tho he does walk well on a leash. He is anxious to get his biz done, so he can move on to sniffing and walking. He loves being with people, so he gets very excited and happy when you come to his run and he knows it's his turn. He will make someone a devoted and happy companion.

Please contact Jacky to meet him and get to know him better. ofni.avretsecuolg@nosliwj

Hi there, my name is Lucci, as in Loooo-keee

I find myself looking for a new home, through no fault of my own. I used to live with another boy and we were best friends. I would love to find a new and forever home , perhaps with another dog to be my friend. The nice people here at the pound say I am a sweetheart. It's embarrassing but ....it's true. I am. And, I am handsome too. I am happy with just being with people who I can lean against and get lots of loving, so if you don't have another dog, that's okay too. More loving for me! For a big boy, I am pretty Low Key...

I am about 4 years old, a big guy at 76 pounds, but I am housebroken, walk nicely on a leash and know my manners, which is very important given my size. I can do a few tricks like offering my paw and I take treats gently when they are offered.

Please come meet me here in Gloucester County, VA. I will do my best to show you what a wonderful family member I will be.

Please contact Brooke, at gro.yteicosenamuhmg@tnemecalplamina for a meet and greet.

I will be on the lookout for you! I can't wait to meet you!

Introducing Apollo!

Apollo was originally picked up as a stray running loose. His owner contacted us to let us know that she wasn’t able to properly care for him anymore and wanted to do the right thing. So she came on down and signed him over so we can find him another family that would love him as much as she loved him.

So what we know is he is 8 years old and full of life! He enjoys being outside and loves to stand in the water.

He is very clean about his kennel and appears to like other dogs (meet and greets required).

Let's give him a CHANCE to find the home he has always deserved!!

Meet our darling young man Chance. He was abandoned at our facility after hours and had been tied to our shelter fence. Now, he is in search of his happily ever after.

If you think you can provide this young 9 month old American Staffordshire Terrier with endless TLC, cuddles and a family to call his own- Please contact us!

Chance aka Kermit (because he is always smiling) does well with other dogs (although still learning his manners). He is in playgroup with several of the dogs here. He is also good with children (he does forget his size at times.)

He would adore a home where he has the room to run and play, family to spend time with, room on the couch to cuddle, other companion animals and a family that wants to include him.

Chance is very clean about his kennel, is still working on learning his basic commands but is very eager to please!
