About 2012-1501 Rhumba

RHUMBA - 4 years old, 50 pounds, house trained, great with adults and children, no other pets, playful, active, will go after other dogs when they walk by, 

Rhumba aka Callie has been in and out of the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center several times. Her perfect family seems elusive up to this point but we are sure the perfect match is still out there.  Rhumba is a sweet and friendly girl. She loves humans, old and young. She is great with humans, loves attention, loves to play, and loves to be near her humans.  She does not, however, like other animals.  On a walk, she will bark and try her best to get at other dogs if she sees them. She will need a family ready and prepared to hold her tight when another dog walks or runs by.  Management is key in situations like this.  Rhumba should remain at a distance where she holds her focus on you, not the other dog. You, as her owner, will have to be prepared to find that certain distance from where Rhumba's focus remains on you and not the other animal. Treats help and with her round belly, it's clear she is motivated by treats!  Daily walks and/or runs would do her good, again realizing that you'll have to manage her behavior if you see another dog.  Other than that, Rhumba is a loving and carefree girl who just wants to be at her humans' side.  She's waiting at the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center. Call us at 385-4444 or go to our Facebook page to make an appointment to meet her.  We are located at 341 S Birdneck Road and are open daily except for Tuesdays.
