Happy Tails - Previous Adopted Dogs : AARF of Richmond, Va

Hi, my name is Freckles Adopted and I was rescued from an area pound with my sister, who has been adopted. I have been with AARF since I was 8 weeks old and I am around 6 months (April, 2008) old now. I don't know why no one looks me! I have been on TV, I am a movie star!! I am crate and house trained! I love other dogs, children and everyone. I will sit and wait patiently for my foster mom to rotate everyone. I do not bark or make any noise, while everyone around me is barking and carrying on. I am the perfect gentlemen! I will go outside and go to one spot do my business! I am a very smart and loving boy. I will only be around 35 pounds full grown and I have had all my medical done! Please give me a chance, you won't be sorry!!
My name is Indiana Adopted and I was saved from a rural gassing pound in November. I am very very sweet. I just love people and love to cuddle with you. I am about 10 months old (as of 4/1/2008) and weigh 35 pounds. I am pretty laid back and I would make a terrific dog for families with kids.
Daisy Hi, I'm DaisyAdopted! My siblings and I had to be caught in a trap. We then went to a pound where we must have looked irresistable to the lady from Aarf. We had never even been around humans before. I'm the shyest of the group. We're staying at a really nice house. They've been teaching us how to be normal dogs. I sure do like those chicken strips they use during training sessions. I go right into my crate when told, I sit when I'm told and I'm now learning how to walk on a leash. We're pretty smart for being around 11 weeks (4/22).

We're pretty smart for being around 11 weeks (4/22).
cory Hi, my name is Cory Adopted and I am saved!! My owners had to turn me into the pound and I was to be put to sleep right away, since I was a owner surrender. But the real nice ladies at the pound got on the Internet and tried to find me a rescue right away and AARF saved me. They had to get me out right away and get me to AARF.
Hi, my name is Tracy Adopted and I was rescued on 9/8/07. I am extremely friendly and I love to give you kisses. I have never met a stranger. I had 6 beautiful puppies and I took real good care of them. I am young and weigh only about 45 pounds.

Squiggles Hey there, my name is Squiggles Adopted and I was born on February 7, 2008. My mom is a 15 pound beagle, named Monea and my dad is unknown, but I look like I have basset legs. I am very sweet and loving. We were very sick when we were little but know I am a very heathy puppy. I have had 2 puppy shots and have been wormed . I love to run and play with my sister and step brother.

Hey there, I'm Scrappy Doo Adopted (male)! I am looking for a clue, to the find the perfect family for me. I am very sweet and loving but I do try to be the alpha pup! HEEHEE I am crate trained and working on my house training. I have had all my medical done.

Hello folks! My name is Trigger Adopted, and I'm ready to go home! I'm a 2- to 3-year-old mixed breed (looks like some German Shepherd, Golden Retriever, and something smaller) boy who is full of life and eager to please. The early years are pretty much a mystery, and my recent past was pretty rough - I was rescued from a local shelter, I was really skinny, and I had heartworms. But the great people at AARF treated my heartworms (I'm a lucky boy - 100% recovered and 100% healthy now), and found me a foster home where I've gotten fat 'n' sassy. Turns out, I'm house trained, crate trained and very easy going. I'm extremely affectionate and very well mannered - I don't chew anything, not even foster-mom's shoes. I absolutely love people, especially kids. When I see kids coming, I start wagging my tail. It's great when they pet me or scratch me ears, and I usually want to give them kisses. I'm also pretty quiet, though every now and then I have to bark at the neighbors when they come home and slam their car doors late at night (someone's got to protect the family!). I am a pretty active boy - I like to run in the yard, play fetch, and romp with the other dogs. In fact, I really like most other dogs, and would be very happy in a home with a canine friend. I'd really enjoy going on walks or going jogging (on my leash, of course) with you, too. I also love, love, love riding in the car. Mainly, I just want to be part of a family. So, if you're looking for a happy, active, outgoing guy to share your home and your life with, maybe I'm the one.

Hi my name is Kyan Adopted and I was rescued from a local pound before I was put to sleep. I am crate trained and working on my house training. I love other dogs and would probably do better with a home that has other pets.

dog Hi, my name is Betty Adopted and I am four years old (Oct., 2007), 60 lbs, and excellent with children (I have lived with three, one who is a toddler, for three years). I love playing catch, and going to the river. I think I am a small lap dog and I love to go along on errands. I am completely house-trained and obeys simple commands like sit and stay. I am a Black Labrador Retriever with Chow Chow mixed in for a spotted tongue and floppy ears. I do not bark more than once or twice in succession as a way of communicating. I don't not like small dogs, especially if they step onto my property.
cashmere Hi, my name is Rudy Adopted and I am a 2 1/2 year old (DOB 9/15/2007) labrodoodle, who weighs around 95 lbs. I am a wonderful, loving dog but my owner can no longer keep me because of health reasons including two upcoming surgeries on her shoulder and foot. I am a healthy, vibrant dog and am current on all required vaccinations including bordetella. I am crate and leash trained, housebroken, and trained to stay within outdoor boundaries with an invisible fencing system. I am cat friendly and would make a wonderful addition to any family with older children and adults. I get along well with other dogs, too, and would welcome a playmate and friend. In addition, I am a wonderful watchdog and am completely devoted to those who love me. On going training is suggested to keep my playfulness and high energy level in check so a family who has prior experience with dogs would be ideal.
Hi my name is Benetta Adopted and I was rescued with my sister before we were put to sleep. We were a little shy at first but now we are very happy and loving little girls. We are crate trained and working on going outside to potty.
Hi, my name is Champ Adopted and I'm about 7 months old (1/08), so I'm still a puppy. My foster mom says I'm the sweetest puppy and eager to please. I love to be near you and I'll follow you everywhere. I love other dogs and have no problems with cats. I'm a very quick learner. I will be a big loving dog so I'm looking for a home with a fence. My brother was adopted already and is doing great as a therapy dog. I'm ready for my turn.

Hi my name is Tixie Adopted and I'm really smart and I learn commands very easily. Since I am so smart, I probably need some training schools to help me learn the good things. I love to follow you everywhere and I am a real love bug.

I am around 1 year old and I only weigh 40 pounds. I got my name at the pound because I was covered in fleas and ticks when I was found. You can certainly change it if you adopt me. I can be a little shy at first but I warm up quickly.

Hi, I'm Halo Adopted and I am a very sweet and loving girl. I have had all my medical done. I am house broken and do fine with cats and other dogs. I love everyone.
Hi, my name is Lucy Adopted and I was rescued off a chain. I am very sweet and loving. I do need some training, I get a little chewy on your hands when I play. I might not be a good fit for young children. I am crate trained and working on my house training.
Hi, I'm Nellie Adopted, a female terrier, that has recently lost my mistress to cancer. I am 13 years old although I don't act it (I can still act like a puppy). I had my last checkup in January according to the vet. I've lived with an older woman all of my life. I probably need a fenced yard. I am house trained but may make a mistake if I am stressed. I am very loving and very protective of my owner. I really need a situation where I can be the queen. I am is very sweet and would be a great companion for someone that is mature and doesn't have other pets.
Hi, my new name is T-Bone Adopted. My name for the past 2 weeks or so has been "Lucky" for good reason. I was found wandering in the middle of the road in Goochland and the "pound" kept me for a week, hoping that my owner would come looking for me. When my week was up, I was going to be put down - but fate intervened. I've been living on a farm in Goochland until I could find a good permanent home. I have been working on trying not to wiggle so much, as I am only around 8 months old (March, 2008). I am learning to sit, lie down, and stay. Boy is this hard, but I am doing pretty well (especially when treats are involved). I have been neutered (no fun) and have had all my shots. I need a good home with lots of love. I don't mind a leash. I also love being in the house (am potty trained) where I get lots of attention. I love toys, Milk Bones, and my bed. I don't do much barking, unless I can see you and am just trying to get your attention. I am very friendly and love everyone - even other dogs. I would make some lucky family a faithful, devoted companion (not to mention handsome). PICK ME!! .

Hey, my name is Beth Adopted and I don't understand what is going on. I was found on the side of the road by a real nice girl who contacted AARF to see if they could help. AARF took me and had to take me to the vet because I had a limp. The vet said that I had an old leg break that was never seen by a vet and the bone is now fused and there is nothing they can do for it. I will always have a limp. But that doesn't stop me! I run and play with everyone around me. I am crate trained and working on my house training.

Hi, my name is Lucky Adopted (aka Buddy) and I am a 9 month old (as of 12/2007) mixed breed golden retriever/boxer/pit-bull. I am very active and I have a lot love to share. I am house trained, crate trained, a puppy-training-school graduate, and very happy and lovable. I am a major lap dog, and an accomplished counter surfer.
Hi, my name is Dewey Adopted and I am lucky boy. I was found rummaging through a dump. A very nice family happened to see me and contacted AARF. I was brought into the AARF family on Christmas Eve. I am about 6 months old (Feb, 2008) and will likely be about 50 or so pounds when I grow up. I am a feisty but good natured puppy and I already know some commands. I am looking for a fur-ever home who will never ever throw me away like trash. I do well with kids and other dogs.
pupington Pupington Adopted , or Pup for short, is a bouncy energetic boy. He gets along great with other dogs and with cats. Pup has springs for feet so a taller fence would be best for this little cutie.

Putt-Putt Adopted I致e got a Lab head and Lab coat on a Basset body. I may be short, but I知 looong on personality! I just turned 3 and I知 as sweet and cuddly as they come. I want to be wherever you are, and I love hanging out on the couch with my head on your knee. I値l stretch out beside you on top of the covers at bed time and I値l even share your pillow if you let me (but don稚 worry -- I don稚 snore!).

Did I mention I知 great with kids? When approached calmly I warm right up, and soon I値l be covering them with kisses. I love other dogs, too; if you have a buddy for me I租 really like that. I知 very calm and quiet in the house but have outdoor energy, so I need a fenced yard (I知 part Basset and I love to follow my nose).

I知 really quiet; I hardly bark at all, and I have short hair and don奏 shed much. I haven稚 had any accidents in the house, and I even learned how to use a doggy door. I like going for short walks and I am pretty good on the leash. Foster Mom is giving me a refresher in something called obedience training, and I want to keep learning if you would teach me!

Hi I知 Gizmo Adopted ! I love playing with other dogs and kids too! I知 ok with cats. Most of the time I ignore them, but sometimes I want to play with them. They never seem to want to play back. I know sit. I知 still learning about housetraining and crate training but I知 doing my best! I知 9 months old and I may grow up to be 40 pounds. I致e got lots of puppy love to give to a family, and lots of puppy energy. I don稚 make too much noise- I知 not a yappy dog, but I do complain when I am in my crate. I just want to be near you! How could you blame me when I知 so darn cute? The funniest thing about me is I have a little Mohawk going down my nose. I have very soft fur, I'm not a wiry terrier. How could you resist me? Please take me home!

Hi, my name is Reba Adopted and I was thrown out of a car when I was 4 weeks old. I was picked up by a couple who tried to keep me but couldn't afford to care for me, so they surrendered me to AARF. All I want is a home to call my own, so I sit here at the adoption stand and pray for a family to stop and look at me and fall in love!! I am very sweet and loving. I am crate trained and working on my house training. We were born a week later on December 18, 2007!! We will be medium size, when full grown.

Hi, my name is Nutts Adopted (because I am as small as a squirrel) I only weigh around 10 pounds!! I am an adult dog and will not get any bigger. I play with other dogs but do try to show them who is boss!! I am crate trained and working on my house training. They think I am around 4 years old. I was found wondering the streets with NO ID or tags on. AARF has tried to find my home but NO one has called for me. So now they are looking for another home to call my own.
Hi, my name is Tila Adopted and I was found running around on the side of the road. A real nice lady picked me up and got my medical done and ask AARF to help find me a home. I am crate trained and working on my house training. I need to be in a home with a fenced in yard. I am very vocal and will not work well in a apartment or a townhouse because your neighbors might get mad at me! I can't believe it!!
I知 Mojo Adopted and I weigh 20 lbs and am between 1 and 2 years old, I知 really calm and love snuggling up with you. My tail is constantly wagging. I am GREAT with other dogs and with cats! I never chase cats as I am a perfect gentleman. I walk well on a leash. I壇 be a good dog for kids, but I do need a home that will understand that I知 shy. I知 a little shaky when I go on car rides- but I値l get over that just as soon as I am sure we are always going to fun places and not to that awful pound place. I didn稚 like it there at all! I知 so glad AARF rescued me and placed me in a foster home. I feel much safer here and I really like playing with my foster sisters. I知 housetrained and especially sweet.

Hi, my name is Panda Adopted and I am very sweet and loving boy.
Hi, my name is is Clare Adopted. I was left behind when my family moved and was rescued along with my puppies. I am two years old (Jan. 2008), completely housetrained and a perfect size, around 30 pounds. I may be a carolina dog mix. I love everyone I meet, especially children. They tell me I am very sweet and smart. I can be a little afraid of other dogs, but when I see they are nice, I love to run and play. I am great on a leash and I love to snuggle. My foster family loves me but they have too many dogs and want me to live with a family who can give me all the love I deserve.
Hi, my name is Shelby Adopted and I was just rescued from a pound before I was put to sleep. I'm very energetic and probably need some training. I'm very loving and am just happy to be able to run around in a fenced in yard and not be in a small pen. I love playing with toys and balls. I'm living with a couple other dogs. My foster home is still learning some about me so more information will be available later.
Savannah Savannah Adopted - I am a sweet little wiggle butt. I am quite shy at first, but once I get to know you, I wag my tail so hard that my whole body wags. I love other dogs and am sharing my kennel with another shy dog. We give each other little kisses. I am so special that I grin if I like you - that is a rare treat.
Hi, I'm Cletus (aka Buck) Adopted and I am very laid back. I love to sleep on my foster parent's bed and sofa (especially with someone). I love children and I put up with a lot of "hugs" and am very careful around the small children my foster mom watches. I am house broken, and I have never had an accident in the house. I don't chew or bark - my only vice is digging. I am playful outside and I run with the kids but never chase them. I am also very sensitive- if I am told 'no' in a sharp tone I hide for a while and then I come back later very quietly to check and see if I am still in trouble.

I was born with an eye defect. The vet seems to think I am blind in that eye. I tend to have eye discharge, so I need to have the eye removed and sewn shut. This procedure will cost around $300. AARF is trying to raise that money so that I can have the surgery. If you would like to contribute to my surgery, make an on-line donation here.

I'll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me. I can give lots of love and kisses! I am the perfect bedtime companion, that will share my bed with you.

Hi my name is Flash (aka Crash)Adopted . Hip, Hip Hurray!! I am alive and in a foster home. I am out of that scary place, they call the pound!! I was so small and all alone there. They had me with a roommate and he got adopted and I was left all alone. A lady that helps lots of doggies and kitty's get out of the pounds and organizes transports and mass emails all over the United States begged a AARF volunteer to take me. She just couldn't get me out of her mind. I am so happy that there is someone like her, that cares so much for the animals and helps so many of us! She has helped so many! I know there is a special place in heaven for her some day! I am around 2 years old and I weigh 12 pounds. I may gain a little weight after I get neutered and all my medical up- to- date.
Hi, I'm Rachet Adoption Pending and I'm the only puppy remaining of 8 rescued from a hunter that didn't want us.

I was born on October 1, 2007 and I love kids, other dogs and cats.

Koala Adopted
Hi, my name is Maggie Moo Adopted and I was born January 2007, so I'm still a puppy. I'm a little shy at first, but I warm up quickly. My foster mom said I'm the sweetest puppy. I love to be near you. I love walks, and I ride well in the car. I'm so smart that I know how to sit, shake, and lie down already. I'm a typical lab and have a lot of engery, love and would really enjoy training. I love other dogs and people. Come and see me. You won't be sorry.
Hi! I'm Diego Adopted (or you can just call me lil' D) and I am about 5 months old (Dec, 2007), and oh yeah, I am super cute. It looks like I am not going to be a really big guy. Some one threw me and my 2 sisters away into the woods when we were way too young to take care of ourselves. Lucky for us some super nice people found us and AARF took us in. When I first got here I was sick, too sick to even play with my foster sister, but I took all my medicines like a big boy and I feel way better now! Both my sisters have been adopted so I think it's my turn now. My foster mom says once I am completely house trained I am going to be the perfect dog. I am almost there; I am better and better about it everyday. I ignore the cats that live here, they are kind of boring. I don't bark in the house (even when my loud mouth sister does). I go in my crate all by myself at bed time (though I do get to get into the people bed in the mornings for a couple hours). I don't chew much at all, well except when my foster sis and I find a sock, we like to play tug-of-war with it. It's kind of one of our favorite games, the people take the socks away, but its their fault for leaving them out in my opinion. My other favorite things to do are to snuggle up on the sofa with people, sleep and give tiny little kisses. I love to play with every one and dogs, but I am super gentle. I will still need some one to help me learn all the things I need to learn but I can already sit, and I sit nice and quiet and say please when my food is being made. Well, enough about me, what are you like? Would you make a good family for me? If so I would love for you to come meet me!
Hi there, my name is Louie Adopted and I am the only surviving puppy from a litter of 6. We came to AARF at 2 days old with frost bite and NO mommy to feed us. Our owner didn't want us because our mommy wouldn't "hunt" if she had to feed us. So he took us to the pound!

Spud - Howdy! My name is Spud (Adoption Pending) and I'm a male Pit Bull/American Bulldog mix. I am definitely a people dog. I love everybody I meet, including kids. I always wag my tail when I meet people, and I even give kisses. I like to be pet on my head, belly, feet, ears. It doesn't matter as long as I am with a person. My favorite activity is going on walks -long walks. I walk well on a leash - like a perfect gentleman. I'm very picky about my dog friends. Unfortunately, this makes me harder to adopt. I need a home where I am the only animal. You wouldn't even have to buy me a lot of toys.
Hi! I'm Shiloh Adopted and I'm looking for my forever home.

Hi there, my name is Foxy Lady Adopted and I was rescued from a back yard breeder. He kept us in a pen with no food, water, shelter or bedding. We had to live and sleep on the ground that we pooped and peed on. There was over 50 of us in one area. I am the lucky one, I was saved by a lady, along with a 10 year old and another one. My friend, the 10 year old, is not doing well! She has heartworms and all of her teeth have fallen out of her mouth. The worst thing is that she might be pregnant. But AARF is working to help her too. Even though I have lived my life in a pen. I am doing well with my house training. I have now had all my medical done and I am waiting for a home to call my own. I am a little shy, so I would probably need a home without small children. For more information, contact Cindy at 804 262-4065 or email her at fortheloveofpups@aol.com Subject: Foxy

Hi, my name is Maggie (aka Kaden) Adopted and I was born around 1/24/2007. I love people and other dogs, although I can be headstrong at times so I do need some training.

For more information about me, contact aarfva at aarfva@hotmail.com Subject=Maggie-Kaden

Hi! I'm Chad Adopted . I came from a rural pound with my siblings and momma. My mom is a shepherd mix who is as nice as can be. Both my brother, Champ, and I will probably be nice like her once we get out of our naughty little puppy phase. We both want your attention and we devise lots of ways to get it. We're very smart you know!! :) We would do well with some basic training classes, smart guys like us need to understand what your rules are so that we don't make up our own. But we promise we will be very good dogs for families.
Hi there, I'm Megan. Adopted I was rescued from a rural pound right before me and my babies were gassed. I am extremely affectionate and very playful. I'm done with my heartworm treatments and ready to go to a home. I am a very devoted dog and I love people. I can be a bit goofy as you can see from my picture! I seem to do great with other dogs (AARF is still testing me), and I even tried out an agility course. I mastered the tunnel! That was so exciting. I'm looking for someone who can take me for some more adventures. I promise I'll make a great addition to your family.

Hi, my name is DORA Adopted and I'm about a year old mix of boxer and retriever (we think). I have the most beautiful eyes - it looks like I have eyeliner around my eyes. My temporary foster mom said I'm the best dog. I'm very well behaved. I don't chew up everything. I'm not hyper. I'm medium height and weight and I have short hair. I know how to sit,and I am not a big barker, I also love to go on walks and riding in the car; I love all people and dogs. I am just about perfect except I'm facinated with cats - probably a little too much.

My foster mom said she would adopt me if she didn't already have so many dogs.

Hi, my name is Spooky (aka Louis) Adopted for now since I was rescued from the Henrico pound right before I was to be put down (around Halloween). I am about 18 months old (11/2007) and I love to play with my toys. My foster home thinks I am the sweetest boy. The cats aren't so sure since I want to play with them but I don't hurt them.
I am so happy to be rescued from the pound that I run around the yard and play with my foster sisters.
Hi, I'm Merlin Adopted and I am a very sweet and feisty 1 year old dog. I like other dogs and I have some kisser on me. I am also completely deaf. I just need to do things just a little differently than other dogs. For instance, instead of verbal commands, I need hand signals. To get my attention, you might try a flashlight, laser pointer or try stomping your feet so I feel the vibrations. The website www.deafdogs.org has a lot of good information on living with a deaf dog. The most important issue for me is that I should never be let off leash unless I am in a secure yard, since I have a personal vendetta against passing cars. I am very obedient, and my training lessons are going very well. I'm very attentive and will do anything for a treat - I probably would be a terrific agility dog! I need a home that has a secure fenced yard and preferably another dog to act as my hearing aid and as a companion (I get very lonely).
Hi, my name is Dalton Adopted and I am a great dog who is super sweet and walks very well on a leash. I love other dogs and playing with them is the highlight of my day. You can tell how much fun I've had by how dirty I get!! I am very skittish towards men, so I need a home with people that are very gentle and patient with me. I'm worth it - I'm an adoption stand favorite. My handsome looks catch everyone's eye and I am doing okay with men as long as they go a little slower when meeting me. If you are an extra special person and have a home perfect for our extra special baby, please contact wkdwitch@msn.com Subject:Dalton

Hi there, my name is Pepsi Adopted and I am one of a litter of Shepherd/Husky pups. Our mom was chained to a dog house for over two years and got pregnant and had us. She was a great mom and protected us from everyone that tried to get us, but that was her death sentence! She was deemed vicious and was taken away from us when we were only 4 weeks old. Animal control tried to work with her once they got her to the pound, but she was so upset!! She hated them for taking us away, and wouldn't let anyone near her. So, they put our mommy to sleep!! Our foster mom has been giving us lots of love and attention and it is now time for us to find a home to continue the love and attention that we deserve. For more information, contact Cindy at 804 262-4065 or email her at fortheloveofpups@aol.com Subject Pepsi

I'm Margie Adopted and I'm the momma of a litter of very adorable puppies (if I do say so myself!). I was pretty weak in the beginning, so I got help taking care of my babies from my sister, Aunty Mame, and my human foster mommy. I'm a very sweet and friendly dog. I love people and giving them kisses. I'm a little calmer than my sister. I've put on some much needed weight and my foster friend says that I've become really pretty. And I'm only around 30 pounds: not too big, not too small....just right for a family.
Hi, my name is Aunty Mame Adopted . I'm proud to be an aunt to my sister's puppies! I help her take good care of them! I'm about 30 pounds and I'm a bundle of energy. I can be a little shy but once you get to know me, you'll get to see my silly side.
Hey there, my name is Bo Adoptedand I was rescued from an area pound when I was 6 weeks old. I had been hit by a car and had a broken leg when a AARF volunteer rescued me. She took me to her area vet and my leg was broken in 5 places. So, they couldn't fix my leg and had to cut it off. But you would never know it, I run and play with all my friends. The only thing you have to do is make sure I don't get to fat with only having one back leg. I love kids and other dogs.

Right now, I would do best in a home with older kids.

AnnieAnnie Adopted - I am the most well behaved dog in the world. I am a Golden Retriever/Chow mix around 7 years old. I am house trained and crate trained, though I prefer to have the run of the house. I love other dogs and people. I was adopted when I was a puppy, but my family moved away and left me on a chain. AARF rescued and noticed my old eye injury from a paint ball accident that left me blind in one eye. But that makes me a special girl. For more information, contact my foster mom, Mary at 262-5735.
Pinky Adopted - Hi my name is Pinky and I am from a pound in Georgia. They couldn't find anyone to adopt us, so they were going to put us to sleep. A nice lady is bringing us all to Virginia to save our lives. Now we need loving homes! For more information, contact Cindy @ 804 262-4065 or email her at fortheloveofpups@aol.com.
RoxanneRoxanne Adopted - Hey there, my name is Roxanne and I am very sad. Not only did my owner die but now I have to find a new home! AARF is going to help me. I love other dogs and I am house trained. I do bark at outside noises because I have wonderful hearing and will make sure you know if someone is near by turf. For more information, contact Charlene at 270-1855 or email her at lovethek9@comcast.net.
Baby HueyBaby Huey Adopted - Hi there, my name is Baby Huey and I was born on October 29, 2006. My mom is a pure breed Saint Bernard and my dad didn't stay around for AARF to find out what he was. They are guessing a black lab. For more information, contact Cindy at 804 262-4065 or email her at fortheloveofpups@aol.com.
RockyHenry Adopted - I am a sweet and loving basset hound-beagle mix. I am still in puppy hood and l love to play with toys, people (including kids), and other dogs. I try to play with cats, but they don't seem to want to play with me. I am housebroken and crate-trained and am working on basic commands. I also love to cuddle and go to the park. I need a fenced in yard with people who have the same energy as me. Please contact my foster mom, Chandra, with any questions at chandra.johnston@gmail.com or (804) 350-6265
ChampChamp Adopted - I was rescued from a pound with my buddy, Layla. I'm a cute little Boston Terrier/Chihuahua mix who only weighs about 15-20 pounds. I'm only about 2 years old, too. I'm extremely friendly and will run up to just about anyone for attention. I get along great with other dogs, but I won't even bother hanging around those cat things. I'm well behaved in my crate and I go outside to potty. I have very good manners too. I can sit for a treat and walk nicely on a leash. I also have a few wilder tricks up my sleeve - I can catch a treat from any distance (and I dance for a treat too)! I like to play and would make a great companion for any family.
LaylaLayla Adopted - Hi, my name is Layla and I was rescued from a pound with my buddy Champ I'm a sweet little Border Collie mixed with something small, maybe some Jack Russell. I'm about 2 years old and only weigh about 15-20 pounds. I'm a very friendly girl, but have a shy, sensitive side to my personality. I get along great with other dogs, love cats - and don't mind bunnies either. I don't really like my crate. Since I don't make a mess in the house, my foster mom lets me stay out. I'm a very well behaved little dog and I would make the perfect pet for a low key family.
JennyJenny (ADOPTED!) - Hi my name is Jenny and I showed up on a family's door step. They have taken care of my medical and have given me lots of love and attention. Unfortunately, they cannot keep me. I am a wonderful girl, house broken, crate trained and very sweet and loving. I am a perfect and wonderful pet.
ChunkyChunky Adopted - (DOB 2002) I am a 4-year-old yellow lab. I was so depressed at the kennel and I had injuries to the pads of my paws. They hurt so badly that I could hardly stand the pain to step on them. Luckily, an AARF volunteer couldn't bear to see me so miserable. She took me home and the minute I stepped on the cool grass at her house, my paws gave a sigh of relief. She put soothing medicine on my paws and massaged them until they were better. Now my foster mom can't keep me anymore so I am in desperate need of a new foster home. Please open your heart to me. I need a home without cats, children and dogs. For more information, contact Charlene at 804 270-1855 or email at Lovethek9@comcast.net.
Marsha Adopted - AARF has placed me in a boarding kennel so I need a sponsor to help with the boarding expenses which are about $10.00 a day. So if you can't adopt or foster me then maybe you can sponsor me. I am a Katrina rescue and I need a forever home to call my own! I'm a calm and well mannered dog. I love receiving attention and I return it back tenfold. I'm what you'd call a "velcro dog"...I stick to you like velcro!! I love going for long walks and car rides. If you'd like to know more about me please contact Sharon at wkdwitch@msn.com.
DiamondDiamond Adopted - Hey there, my name is Diamond and I was rescued from Georgia before I was put to sleep. I love everyone - will you love me? For more information, contact Charlene at 804 270-1855 or email her at lovethek9@comcast.net.
Dolmen Adopted - Hi there, my name is Dolmen. My brother and I are the only survivors of a litter of 7 that were rescued at two weeks old. Our mom had been living on the streets for over 5 years and gave us a bacteria infection through her milk. After a long, hard and expensive battle, 5 of my brothers and sisters passed away. I was so sad! Packard and I were the only ones that made it. Packard has gone to his new home and I am all alone. I need a loving home to call my own. If you would like to make a donation to help AARF pay for the pending medical bills on our litter, please send donations to AARF, PO Box 15262, Richmond, VA 23227 or you can go on aarf.org and make an online donation to the Packard Fund. We are a 501 C 3 rescue group and all donations are tax deductible. For more information, contact Cindy at 804 262-4065 or at fortheloveofpups@aol.com.
