Jenna Beth is fully grown at 13 months and is about 36 lbs. She looks like a mini Redbone Hound. She was very much loved by an infirm man who lived alone. He passed suddenly leaving her all alone, and Animal Control went into the home and brought her to the shelter. Since BHS had helped the gentleman get her spayed and microchipped, we had met her and her Dad, and heard about her ending up in the shelter. Knowing how bad this man would have felt we just had to get her out and foster her to find a good home to be loved again as she was. Jenna Beth is very sweet but has not had a lot of training. She can be a little energetic but seems to settle down quickly. She loves to get back in the house after she goes for her potty walk on a long line. She is good in her crate and gets along with the other dogs in the fosterâs household. Unfortunately there are no children in the home, but we are sure with her sweet disposition she would do well with them. Jenna Beth is spayed, microchipped, dewormed and up to date with vaccines. She also has been heartworm tested with the combo testing and all was negative and she is presently on HW preventative.

Lady found herself in the county pound one day. If only Lady could talk and tell us who her owner is. Her story is somewhat a fairytale that has gone all wrong. Lady may have been owned by someone who became very ill and could not tell anybody about their dog Lady (BHS gave her this name). Lady found herself put outside where she had never been before to fend for herself. She hung around the only house she knew as home and begged to go inside. Her ownerâs caretaker did not know of this dog, therefore Animal Control was called to come get Lady. Lady had been outside long enough that her ribs were showing from lack of food. BHS was called to see if possibly they had a place to keep her and get her out of a full pound environment. Lady is very sweet and has become very attached to her foster mom. It appears that she will be a very dedicated pup to a person. She listens well and wants to please. She is in the kennel with a younger pup and does well playing. Lady does not want to share her food, therefore she would need to be fed separately around other animals. She is 30 pounds at 8 months, so there is a good chance she will not get much bigger. Due to no owner to talk to, BHS is guessing at her breed. She sits in the crate nicely when in the car. If you are looking for a dedicated pup that will stay by your side, Lady is the one for you. Can you help turn her turned upside down world around? Ladyâs adoption fee is $175.00 to help pay for the medical attention she has received which includes her spay. Lady has been dewormed, microchipped, tested for heartworm and is on preventive, spayed, and has received the Distemper-Parvo combination vaccine, Kennel Cough vaccine and Rabies vaccine.

Cooper has been surrounded by children and loving people since 4 months old. Cooper was born in March 2018. Cooper would love to have a new family to love him and give him lots of attention. Cooper is in a foster home with another dog and is doing well. Cooper is a large sized dog and does tend to pull on leash walks. He has been leash trained and is now continuing this training but he is also still a puppy at heart and tends to pull hard. W It would be great if Cooper has his own fence yard to run off energy.

Meet Ruger, he is a Shepherd mix born in April 2019. 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.
