What a cutie Miss Trixie is!  By all accounts she had lived most of her life outside before coming into rescue.  She seems to really like being inside and being a real family member.  She does still love exploring the yard so a fenced yard is one of the things she would really love to have!  She always lived with another dog and has done well with her foster friends, so we think she would enjoy having another pup or two to play with. She is a very sweet girl and she really deserves a loving family of her very own.

If you think Trixie might be the perfect pup for you, please go to, click on Forms/Application and complete your adoption application online.
We are an all-volunteer group, so please be patient and understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions and home visits.  You can expedite the process by providing accurate email addresses for all your references.  Time to make phone calls is limited and we often have multiple applications in process.  We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible.
When your application is approved, we will schedule a meet-and-greet to see if Trixie picks you too.
If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption fee, and an adoption contract to be signed.
Please feel free to email [email protected] or call 434 841 0411 or 540 297 1590 if you have additional questions.
