Hi, the name is Zeus! And I am in the market for a new home for the holidays and for all the days of my life. Could that be you? Let me tell you about myself. Not only am I happy and affectionate, I used to live on a farm. My former family had to give me up through no fault of my own, but they speak highly of me. I lived with another dog and we got along fine. She was a submissive female. I like to swim in the creek, ride in the car and am happy to go in a crate. I also got along with the peacock. How many dogs do you know that have a peacock for a friend? But I didn't get along with the pigs, or the cats. The stress of the pound makes me grumpy with other bully dogs and we get rowdy through the fence or gate, so if you have or plan to have me around other dogs, you will need to do a meet and greet with them. Of course, I would love to be an only furry child. I need to catch up on my couch cuddles. In my former home, I loved visiting with children and I love to walk on the leash. A fenced in yard would be great too as I have lots of playful energy. I take treats gently and appear to be at least partially housebroken, as I do my biz the minute we go outside. Sadly, I am heartworm postive and will need to be treated for them. The local humane society will pay for and do the treatments. After that, you can do what is called a foster to adopt, where I come to live with you while I finish up my treatment. At the end of treatment, you can officially adopt me. Oh how I long for the day to be adopted and have my own home again! If you want to know more about my personality, please contact Joyce at 757-376-8360 or email at jemerson60@hotmail.com I am at the Gloucester Animal Control pound at this time and have been here since I arrived. However, all adoptions are administered by the Gloucester Mathews Humane Society . To apply for my adoption, please contact them at animalplacement@gmhumanesociety.org. If you have a vet, you might want to let them know that they will be contacted so you can give permission for them to give information. Please come meet me, I will give you lots of loving and will be your new best friend. Adopt Zeus in Gloucester VA

Meet our Sassy Shepherd mix SWERVO!
This 1.5 yr old Shepherd Mix was an owner surrender at absolutely no fault of his own.

He came to us after his family was no longer able to care for him. Without proper training, he became to much for them and came to us.

This boy is around 65lbs of energy and would love an active family! He is Up to date n his rabies vaccination, is neutered, microchipped and is hoping he can find the perfect family!

Swervo is best suited for a family with *no cats* and would do well in a home with other dogs with proper introduction.

Swervo has the habit of forgetting his size from time to time and therefore it would be best he goes to a home with children over 10.

Swervo does know basic commands and we are working on teaching him some new tricks! He loves to hangout in our play area, chase his toys and meet new people! He is working on his leash manners but is ALWAYS happy to meet new people!!

Please call 804-520-9397 to schedule a time to meet with Swervo!

Hi, My name is Ham! Isn't that a silly name? But I am a ham, and a silly boy. So I guess it fits. I came to this pound as a stray so the folks caring for me don't know much about my background. But, when I came here, my skin and hair were in bad shape, but with the attention, medicated baths and healthy grain free foods, I am so much better. In fact, the people here tell me how handsome I am, which of course makes me smile and wiggle all over. I am so much more comfortable now and am ready to find my furever home.

I am about five years old, weigh about 51 pounds, and am healthy and heart worm negative. I love people and love the attention they give me when I sit for them and take treats gently. I love treats, and love to go for walks on the leash. I would also love a big fenced in yard, if you happen to have one. I am selective when it comes to other dogs but have made friends with smaller females, it seems. I would need to meet any dogs that would share my home though. Of course, I would be happy to be an only furry child. For such a big tough looking guy, I am quite sweet and cuddly.

If you would like to ask more about me or my personality, please contact Joyce, moc.liamtoh@06nosremej or 757-376-8360, who is a volunteer at the Gloucester County, VA animal control pound. She interacts with me every day.

All adoptions and rescues are administered through the Gloucester Mathews Humane Society, just up the road from the pound. To apply for my adoption, please contact gro.yteicosenamuhmg@tnemecalplamina

To get things going faster, please contact your vet to allow them to give information.

I would really like to be settled in my new home for the new year. Could I be your holiday Ham??? I would love to! Please come meet me, you will find I am just the right amount of ham for you!

Hello there! My name is Daenerys. Those of you who are fans of "Game of Thrones" will know that I am named after the beautiful blond woman on that show. She is strong and beautiful and so am I. I was surrendered with my sister, Arya, through no fault of our own. I am the big sis, at 4 years old, and 77 pounds. Hey, more to love, right? I have a beautiful white coat, with just a couple patches of brown, one right on the top of my head! As you can see from my pictures, I am always smiling and am hoping to find myself my forever home. The nice folks at the pound say I appear to be housebroken, as I do my biz as soon as I go out the door. Sometimes I pull hard, as I am just so excited to go. I am a big strong girl, and so would like a big strong human to help me learn to be more patient. I have a harness which helps me too. And, of course, a big fenced in yard would be fun too, where we can all play together. I have lots of energy but would still like to be your couch buddy too.

Sadly, I am heartworm positive and have begun treatment, the cost being covered by the local humane society. Until my treatment is complete, a foster to adopt agreement would allow me to come live with you. Then the adoption would be finalized once my treatment is completed. I would love that as it would be so nice to go through this with my new loving family.

If you would like to know more about me and my sparkling personality, please contact my friend, Joyce. She is a volunteer here at the Gloucester Animal Control Pound and works with me everyday. She can be reached at 757-376-8360 or moc.liamtoh@06nosremej

Even tho I am at the pound, my adoption would be administered by the Gloucester Mathews Humane Society. To arrange a meet and greet or to apply to adopt me you can email to animalplacement@gmhumanesociety.org

Please come visit. I would love to meet you and maybe make you my new forever family! That would really make me smile!!

King Arthur
Breed: Pitbull terrier mix
Age: 5 yrs
Gender: M, neutered
Wgt/Hgt: 47 lbs / 26 inches tall
Energy level: Average. Medium-high (when playing)
Relations: Good with dogs after intro, teens, kids/ Not so good with cats              
Highlights: sweet, smoochy, good walking on leash, rides well in car, loves to play ball and go for walks, house trained
Region: Mexico

Knights, assembled! Honoring my name, and as the truthful king of smoochies, I’m looking for honorable folks to spend the rest of my life with. If you’re up for becoming a part of the Pittie round table, I’m your perfect match! 

I am a sweet boy who is super handsome, calm and well-adjusted to being around people.

I was found on the streets of Mexico wandering around; it seemed as if I hadn’t been abandoned for very long. I almost got ran over by a truck, but my rescuer managed to get me out of the avenue, safe and sound. 

My rescuer and her family decided to take me in, so I could be safe. Apparently, my looks could have put me in danger. Sadly, my rescuer’s country isn’t the most pitbull-friendly place.

I must’ve had experience with travelling by car before, because things went perfectly all the way to the vet. The doctor said I had no health issues, and after a few days, I got neutered, vaccinated and dewormed (not my favorite moment, to be honest). 

Since then, I’ve been taken care of by my rescuer and the vet’s team, especially by a very sweet 14 year old guy with whom I spend the most time. I can get a little anxious when “my" person leaves and will softly whine. https://youtu.be/939J5WPyZe4.

I don’t care much for crowds though and feel a bit stressed at that time. 

My caretakers say that I’m the smoochiest dog ever, a good kiss is all it takes for me to be ever affectionate and just overall happy.

Listening is one of my strongest suits, so you can always count on me for that. I love sausages, so they’d do the trick if you want to train me. I can be a little stubborn at first (I’m a king) but I learn pretty fast, so I’ll pick up the commands after a short time.  https://youtu.be/2r8GFznskqo.

I always have a great time exercising, but I know how to walk calmly on a leash and pretty well ignore most everything. https://youtu.be/S5p7IPOBrvQ.

I’m smart, obedient, clean, and house trained. Yea. I like other dog’s company, but I think I will do best as the only one in the house. I sometimes move forward and growl at other dogs when they get too close. With a couple meetings, I usually become friends. I don’t like sharing my toys with other dogs when playing though. https://youtu.be/IxHbYTo5rj0.

I have been around a couple of young children and it went well. I just think I might be a little strong to hang out with them often, but I definitely get along with teenagers. They’re my favorite!     

Not usually many problems with cats, but since I don't like them too close, I can growl when I get stressed, and they can make me a little tense. But you can be sure that my years in this world made me a true gentleman, emphasis on the gentle part! 

I don’t know why, but recently I’ve started to bark at many things while in my crate. I'm typically not much of a barker. I just want to be part of a family, where I can hang out with you.

I enjoy any kinds of activity with my human knight, whether it be relaxing after a long day, or racing together in the morning. My energy level depends on what I’m doing, so I can be pretty relaxed while watching a movie or pretty energetic while playing ball (I love it!).

I’m a very adaptable guy. A back yard with a tall fence (since I know how to jump quite high when playing ball– yes, I am quite athletic) would be nice, but I also like going out for walks to enjoy the air and the view. I look forward to starting a new life in Canada and will be sure to bring lots of love and fun to my new home!

I have been neutered and vaccinated.

My adoption fee is $500.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.
