XENA - 4 years old, 50 pounds, house trained, nervous In shelter, friendly when she warms up to you, no young kids, no other pets.
Barking from behind cage bars, I had to get help from staff getting Xena our for the first time. She’s nervous. Her nervousness presents with barks and growls from the cage. I saw the gentle approach and slow introduction bring out just enough confidence to get her to come close enough to clip a leash. Xena warms up pretty quickly. She wants to get close to you. Her tail wags, she will even lean on you. Xena was surrendered for the behavior she showed towards children. We have no other information as to why she didn’t seem to like children so, to be cautious, we need to find a home with older respectful children. Xena is great walking on the leash. She enjoys walks. She likes, change that... she loves attention so much so that she needs to be an only pet. No sharing of attention with this girl! Call 385-4444 or go to our Facebook page and make an appointment to meet her! Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center, 341 S Birdneck Road, Virginia Beach. We are open daily except for Tuesday’s. Thanks for choosing adoption!
