Loretta was born Sept 24, 2019. She is a little bit city (Boston Terrier) and a little bit country (Beagle). Loretta weighs in at 6 pounds at 2-1/2 months old. She probably will be medium sized adult dog. Loretta is a young puppy that will need to be house trained and crate trained. She has lots of energy when she is playing but wants to be held when she is ready for a nap. She does not like to be crated alone, so training is essential. She would love to have her own home by Christmas. If you are ready for a new family member and have lots of spare time to train a young puppy, Loretta is for you. Loretta has been dewormed, microchipped, and has received the Distemper-Parvo combination vaccine and Kennel Cough vaccine. Since she is not yet spayed, Loretta is not available for adoption outside of the counties contiguous to Bedford County and requires an additional spay contract, (security deposit $50 required). The adoption fee of $225 DOES cover the cost of her spay. For more information, please call the Bedford Humane Society at 540-586-6100, or go to www.bhsva.org/adoptions-home.htm to fill out an adoption application.

Meet Ruger, he is a Shepherd mix born in April 2018. He was surrendered by his family due to the other family shepherds picking on him. Ruger is a happy young boy with no care in the world. He loves to run and play with another dog or is just as happy to play by himself. He likes to chase a ball and carry it around. He does not mind being in his crate when his foster mom is not there to supervise him. He lets her know if he needs to go potty. He is a very good boy on car rides and enjoy meeting new people. He walks pretty well on a leash but does forget how strong he is and he is in additional leash training. Sometimes this is just a puppy thing and he will grow out of it. He gets along with other dogs but sometimes the other dogs are afraid of his size, so recommend a meet and greet before playing. He plays with the other foster dogs in his foster home. He was picked on by other large dogs in early life therefore he is a little shy of large dogs. He is learning commands and sits quietly with all the foster dogs when getting a treat. He is a very sweet boy eager to please and be with people. Ruger has a slight limp every now and then. He has had blood tests and x-rays, and it appears he may have hip dysplasia in both hips. It is not an injury but possibly genetic. He has been seen by several veterinarians who recommend a watchful eye and not to do anything for an additional year, at least after he is finished growing. Ruger needs a long term foster home or a forever home that understands the large breed hip issues and is willing to give Ruger the best of life. He is ready to go to his forever, just needs someone to love him. Are you his Christmas Angel? Ruger has been dewormed, microchipped, tested for heartworm and is on preventive, neutered, and has received the Distemper-Parvo combination vaccine, Kennel Cough vaccine and Rabies vaccine. For more information, please call the Bedford Humane Society at 540-586-6100, or go to www.bhsva.org/adoptions-home.htm to fill out an adoption application.
