Do you recognize this dog? She is a white American staffordshire/American bully/“pit bull” type dog. She was found on Shell Rd in virginia beach yesterday 12/20/20. She does appear to be lactating, causing great concern that there are puppies missing their momma.

*edited to include the person that found her did walk her around the area where she was found and knocked on doors. They were unable to find her home. She also does not have a microchip.

ADOPTED!!!

She may very well be the best and most comfortable dog I've ever dealt with in my time fostering, and I've had her now for around five months.
She is attentive, smart, overly-affectionate, good with kids, and house trained. Her health is good as are her eating habits. She is playful, but cautious, and will join you for any activity with joy and gusto.
She is pretty awesome across the board, except for one thing, and it is a pretty big one: She is extremely afraid of, and subsequently aggressive towards, most other dogs. Because of this, careful handling on walks is a must. She will not hurt you, nor jerk the leash, but may try to slip it in order to get at a near by yapper. Short fences won't help either, as her capacity for hopping is rivaled only by frogs and crickets.

“Lucy” arrived at the VBACAC shelter on 12-13-2020 after being quite elusive since 2018. Virginia Beach Animal Control Officers were able to safely transport her to the shelter due to the persistent efforts of a kind citizen. We are so thrilled she is safe and in good health! After reviewing her history, we were able to determine that “Kiara” is her given name and she was adopted to a Virginia Beach resident from another local shelter in 2018.

Once Kiara “AKA Lucy” came to our facility, she was tended to by our staff veterinarian to ensure she was in good health. Prior to releasing any companion animal to an outside agency, certain criteria must be met, as mandated by the Code of Virginia. After fulfilling the necessary legal requirements, we were able to move forward with “Kiara’s” placement to a long-standing foster-based rescue partner. As with all animals impounded, we work to identify placement options in a quick manner with quality placement in mind, which addresses the specific needs of the individual animal. In this case, after living on her own for so long, "Kiara" would benefit from re-acclimation into home/family life. She was transferred to an approved, breed-specific, rescue partner in accordance with Virginia code 3.2-6549. We are confident that they have her best interests in mind and will ensure she is placed in her fur-ever home.

Organizations wishing to become an approved rescue partner with VBACAC are welcome to submit paperwork toward the approval process which includes: Copy of their annual report to the State Veterinarian; documentation that each of its directors, operators, staff, animal caregivers and foster care providers specifying that each individual has never been convicted of animal cruelty, neglect or abandonment; documentation that any releasing agency that places a companion animal in a foster home with a foster care provider shall ensure that the foster care provider complies with 3.2-6503 of the Code of Virginia; a copy of the releasing agencies mission statement and by-laws and a copy of the releasing agencies adoption contract to include sterilization requirements.
