Sophia came to BHS from a home that took in a Walker Hound who was pregnant with Sophia and her siblings. Sophia's birthday is Nov. 12, 2018. Sophia has been living with young children, an adult dog, family cat and turkeys. Sophia's father is thought to be the neighborhood German Shepherd. Sophia is growing fast and already weighs 37 pounds. Her weight as an adult is estimated to be between 60-80 pounds. If you are looking for a large dog, Sophia is the one for you. Sophia is in foster care being kept in an outside kennel; therefore she will need house training. She is a smart girl and is learning leash walking and simple commands. Sophia has been the leader of her siblings, and will need a meet and greet if you have other dogs to make sure that Sophia is not too demanding. Sophia has been dewormed, microchipped, started on heartworm preventative and has received the Distemper-Parvo combination vaccine, Kennel Cough vaccine and Rabies vaccine. Since she is not yet spayed, Sophia is not available for adoption outside of the counties contiguous to Bedford County. If you are looking for a new family member or would like to be a foster home, 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.

Hi my name is Poppy, I am 11 months old, and have had kind of a rough start at life. BHS has been there to help me every step of the way, and for that I am so thankful. I am with a great foster family now who is doing everything they can to set me up for success. My new foster mom has the coolest donkey and we became fast friends! See I was adopted and returned to BHS because of an incident with a kitty. I mainly lived in the basement of my old home because my mom had to work quite a bit and there were kitty roommates who ran free. I did have free access to a fenced yard while she was away with a doggie door in the basement. Being a very large puppy I just needed more attention and training. My mom didnât get to spend a whole lot of time with me but did walk me daily. I didnât get to meet any new furry friends, so I donât really know how to play and can be a little rough. I am learning now that other dogs donât like to be played with that rough and I need to be gentler I am certainly a work in progress. My foster mom is working real hard with me on my manners and is always calling me a fast learner and so smart! She has taught me to sit, shake, and down. Now I know if she has a treat I must sit and take it very gently or I donât get to have it. I love kids, I think they are so much fun to run around with! I really love my foster mom, her family, and my donkey friend but I know this is just temporary. I am hoping my new family will read this and send their application. Poppy has been dewormed, microchipped, tested for heartworm disease and is on preventative medication. Poppy is spayed and has received the Distemper-Parvo combination vaccine, Kennel Cough vaccine and Rabies vaccine.

Hi - my name is Misty Marie! I look so adorable, donât I? Well that I am, for sure, but I am also a handful. My new foster mom has learned my likes and dislikes, but it did not come easily. I did bite my foster mom by accident because she tried to take my very delicious treat and I thought maybe my foster brother was gonna steal my yummy snack. Like many small dogs, I can be a bit possessive, and might snap if not approached with care. I need a home without children, as their energy and noise cause me to become too anxious. I also would prefer a calm home with a single person, or a couple, as larger numbers of people around makes me nervous. ?I donât want to scare you with my quirks, but I feel I just need to let you know up front how I feel so our life together can be smooth from the beginning. My foster mom can give you more instructions about my sensitive nature. I would prefer a home where I am the only dog, but I guess I could get used to a four-legged roommate with the right amount of time and patience. I will chase nearly anything unfamiliar, including trespassers in my yard and maybe even the mail man until we get to know one another better. They think this may be the Jack Russell in me. I know BHS has done a lot for me, and while I am appreciative, I am just accustomed to living a certain way. If you are an older responsible couple looking for a queen of a dog to dote on I am for sure your girl. I hope the right people see me and realize that I am the one thing missing in their lives and give me a chance at a forever home! Misty has been dewormed, microchipped, tested for heartworm and is on preventive for heart worm and intestinal worms, spayed, and has received the Distemper-Parvo combination vaccine, Kennel Cough vaccine and Rabies vaccine.

Daisy is a sweet two year old girl who loves her walks. She likes to take her person out twice a day to get them exercise. Sheâs an excellent motivator for those looking for someone to get them up off of the couch. But she knows how to relax, too, enjoying her chew toys after getting in her exercise. She likes playtime with her foster dog brother, and also sometimes likes to venture to her crate on her own. She calls this her contemplating time, where she relaxes and dreams about one day having a forever family of her own that she can run and play with. Daisy has had some disappointments in her short life. She lost her home and family during Hurricane Florence in NC in Sept. 2018. She was transported up to northern Virginia, where a couple saw that she was looking for a home. They were told she was older but when they brought her to their vet they were told she was younger and that explained why they were not able to get her exercised enough. They had another dog and just could not handle two and begged for someone to help. They did not want her to end up in a shelter so BHS stepped in and got her into foster care. She would be best suited for a family that is dog-experienced who will continue to build her confidence with patience and kindness. She has been going for extra training with her foster Mom. Daisy 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.
