Lassie – Adoption Pending

Lassie – Adoption Pending

About Me

Meet Lassie
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 3-4 Years

Estimated Weight:  34 Pounds
NOTE: Timid, so no young children; prefers a home with a fenced yard to run.

UPDATE – 8 JUNE 2021 (from foster mom): Lassie is doing great! She is super sweet and very shy. She will need someone who can be patient with her as she is very skiddish at first. She likes to be around but not too close. She has been with us for a little over a month, and it has taken this long for her to open up and show her true loving personality, confidence, and playfulness.

She LOVES to be outside and sometimes likes to take inside things outside to organize them! She learned quickly to use the doggie door and always uses it when she needs to potty. She is pretty good on a leash and is starting to like to snuggle! (Especially during storms!!) Great with our dog!

UPDATE – 24 APRIL 2021: This pretty lassie went to a foster home today. She was a little scared, but she rode quietly for a couple of hours in the transport. Let’s see how she does as she settles down in her new foster home.

UPDATE – 29 MARCH 2021: Lassie is now fully vetted and available for fostering and adoption.

NEW – 24 MARCH 2021: Lassie is a 3/4-year-old sweet but reserved beagle mix girl (maybe sheltie or collie?). She is quiet and friendly. She’s so cute when she does a little dance with her front feet when you talk to her. She was a stray at the Louisa County Animal Shelter in Virginia, so her history is unknown. She will be available soon.



Q:  Can you tell me more about a specific dog?  Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?

A:  What we know is in the write up.  Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited.  Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.

Q:  Can I meet a specific dog?

A:  We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs.  Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.

Q:  How can I adopt a specific dog?

A:  You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt.  You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there..  It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you.  Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime.  But we are always getting new dogs.   You can see them on our website.

Q:  Can I add another dog to the list on my application?

A:  We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application.  It gives us an idea of what you are looking for.  Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.

Q:  I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted.  What happened?

A:  We do not hold dogs.  Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved.  But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
