Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet!
Ledecky is a beautiful lab mix with a shiny black coat. She's house trained and knows her basic commands such as sit and down and she will go into a down every time she notices you have a treat, because she also loves treats. She has the cutest smile that she may flash at you if you are lucky enough to be looking at just the right time. She's good on the leash and does wonderful once outside in the barnyard where she can romp around. Ledecky is nervous of new people. She takes a minute to warm up when she is first introduced but once she is comfy with you she will be your friend for life. She would probably do best in a home without small children as they don't always understand why they can't just run up to her screaming and wanting to hug her. Nothing against kids, I want to do that when I see a dog, too, but thankfully I know better and understand that it makes some dogs nervous. Shelter life is "ruff" on a girl that is scared of all the different people walking up to her kennel and staring at her. For that reason she is being held in the back where there is less traffic. We will be glad to bring her out for you to meet, all you have to do is ask for her in the front lobby. Stop by to meet Ledecky and be sure to bring your resident pups so we can make sure they will want to be friends. She's waiting to meet you now at Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center, 341 S Birdneck Road. Just mention her by name and/or ID# 1608-0781 when you stop by. Thank you for considering a shelter pup!
