I’m a super sweet fella that loves to go for adventures. I’m nervous when you first meet me, but I warm up quick if you let me come to you. I would do best in a home with older kids who understand personal space. I am what could be called a bit of a spicy boy. For that reason I’m labeled a bite risk.  If you find the chi memes relatable maybe you’re my type of people! I’m wonderful in my crate both during the day and at night as far as being a pretty quiet boy BUT I can get an attitude going in and that’s when I can get snappy.  I prefer a blanket covering my crate because it makes me feel safer and I like to walk in it on my own not be placed in it. I have good house manners and will smother you with kisses given some time. I am really just looking for love I can grow in confidence with. My owner passed away, so my world’s been tipped upside down. So please understand I will need patience and that trust will be something we work on together.

You can still come adopt me or even join our foster program to help the humans learn all the awesome things about new dogs like me! Learn more on our website! 

Hope to see you soon!

What breed am I? Mixed mutt! ODHS does not breed label (unless there’s official paperwork), as studies show it is nearly impossible to tell the exact breed of each dog based off of their appearance.

Adoption Donations are $275 for an adult, $375 for puppies (a dog under one year of age), and $175 for a senior dog (based on the age of the dog). Adoption donations are to be made via cash, check, and credit/debit card. There is a $5 fee to run cards.

Please remember to bring a martingale collar and leash (non-retractable) with you the day of the adoption. 

We typically have adoption events on Wednesday 5-7pm and on Saturday noon to 4pm.  Our adoption center is located at 3602 Lafayette Blvd, Suite 101, Fredericksburg, VA 22408. Its important that you keep an eye on your emails for any changes or updates during the adoption process.

Old Dominion Humane Society is a volunteer based organization. We are run completely by volunteers, who also have full time jobs, so we appreciate your patience.  Currently, the average timeframe for a response to your application is 1 week.

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
