Hello!! My name is Willie! I am 4 years old and 60lbs!

Willie is a hunk of energy and love! Willie is blind but you can't tell him that! He is a very active boy who needs an active home! He loves going for walks but gets very excited! Our staff loves playing with Willie outside where he can run and be carefree! An ideal home for Willie would be one without small children because he is high energy and gets overly excited when he hears people approaching. The staff has been working with him on commands such as wait and sit so he can move about safely through doors and he is doing amazing! Treats are the way to his heart and staff has been showing him fun games to seek the treats using his nose! He is a smart boy who just needs an outlet for all that love and energy! If you think you could be the ones for Willie please contact Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society!

Charlie is a very sweet boy. He is a pocket pit that we call chicken nugget. He is dog friendly but can get a little rowdy if he really likes his playmates. He is cat friendly. He can be shy so it could take him a while to warm up to a new human but once he does he is the biggest lover. Charlie has been coming to daycare with us since 2017 and was even trained here! He has been surrendered to us by his owner.

Crimson is a very gentle girl, who's had a hard life. She has multiple scars on her face and has obviously been used as a breeding machine. She is now spayed, rabies-vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. She is about 3 years old and weighs 44 pounds.

One of our volunteers describes her as “beyond sweet” and says she leans up against anyone who's kind to her, to beg for pets. :) Crimson is fine with other dogs through the kennel at the shelter, but a meet and greet is recommended if other dogs are in the household.

Location: Arlington, VA

I’m Looking For: Love and play time and more play time! This young girl is full of energy and ready to go, go, go wherever you go! She loves playing with other dogs and will need plenty of opportunities for that. She can be fearful of new people, so an apartment or condo where there are a lot of interactions may not be her best situation.

What My Foster Says About Me: Ellie May is doing well at our house and learning a lot from my very calm, confident dogs. She loves daycare and loves to play with other dogs; 2-3 days a week of daycare, or the equivalent, calms her down a lot! To be her best self, she needs to go to a calm, structured home with someone who can continue to work on her training and confidence building.

Special Adoption Considerations: Ellie May needs to go to a home with a second dog so she can work on her confidence. She also cannot go to a home with children under 12. - NO EXCEPTIONS!

Lilly is Looking For: Lilly is a young, energetic girl who will needs lots of play time and long walks! She'll also be happy to curl up with you at the end of the day, when she's all played out. She'll love obedience school so she can learn to be the best girl she can be.

What My Foster Says About Me:
Lilly is a spitfire and has a huge personality! Lilly loves to PLAY-- chasing and being chased is her absolute favorite. She's a huge clown and constantly makes me laugh, including when she's chasing her own tail and barking at herself in the mirror. Lilly is also an incredibly precocious, curious dog. She's always exploring her surroundings, you can practically see the wheels turning in her brain as she figures things out and experiences new things.

When she's done running out her energy at the park or on a long walk, Lilly is a little couch potato who likes to lounge and snuggle and wants to be close to her people.

Her other favorite hobby is watching birds outside and "protecting" us from them-- she's a very diligent "guard dog"! Lilly would love to go to a home with someone who is ready to help her channel her energy into long hikes or trips to the dog park, and to support her to learn basic obedience skills so that she can be the best dog she can be. She's a smart, spunky girl with lots of love to give!

Special Adoption Considerations: Lilly is a rambunctious teenager with lots of energy! Lilly gets anxious with strangers in the house so needs training to help her feel more secure. Because she can be anxious, she needs to go to a home with no kids under the age of 12.

Who is... Long, Lanky and Looking for LOVE??
Our boy Copper!! So, let's cut to the chase. It's almost a New Year and what could be better than kicking it off with unconditional Love?

This boy is 1.5 years young, neutered, microchipped, playful and ready for a HOME to call his very own!
Copper DOES get along with other dogs but will require a proper meet and greet. He can sometimes be overbearing with his toys with other dogs. Of course... he loves his lady companions the most!
Copper is great with the basics but of course will need a refresher. We are hoping to place him in a home that has room to run!
He has those long legs that just beg to stretch out and will require running and playtime. Fenced in yard is recommended. Please *no apartments*

Copper is pending his cat test. He does well with children but keep in mind he is rather large and can forget his size!!

For more information on Copper, please CALL Colonial Heights Animal Services at 804-520-9397.

Let's not leave out our Buddy BOOMER!!! This handsome man was a transfer from another facility. Let's hop right to it!

About Boomer
Age: 1-2 years
Sex: Male
Breed: Boxer Mix

If this boys pouty lip doesn't draw you in.. I don't know what will. He is in the market for a patient home that will be eager to teach him the basics and provide some training. He is very excitable here at the shelter and enjoys nothing more than any attention that is given to him!! His other favorite likes are toys, pupsicles and soft blankets!!

Boomer is overly excited when meeting new dogs and therefore proper meet and greets will be required. He does calm down once the initial excitement is over!! He was the same way when introduced to cats. Boomer would do best and thrive in a home that is active and likes to play. He loves his one on one time but will need someone that has the patience to train! He is eager to please and just knows there is a family out there to call his very own!!!

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

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.
