Ghira reminds us of luxurious Ghiradelli chocolates! She is a beautiful lab mix girl but she isn’t exuberant and outgoing like a lot of pups. You can tell when she’s happy or when she’s stressed by looking in her eyes. She was picked up as a stray and we still can’t believe someone wasn’t frantically looking for this little sweetie.
Ghira seems to trust other dogs more than she trusts most people. She is definitely an inside girl and once she bonds with you, she wants to be close to you most of the time. Ghira loves playing outside with her foster pup siblings and we think she will do best in a home and family with another dog to be her buddy. She will be happiest with a fenced yard where she can play safely off-leash with her new family. She will do best in a calm, laid-back household that is pretty ‘settled.’ Due to her anxiety with new people, she will do best with a family who doesn’t have a lot of different people coming and going frequently. She won’t handle a lot of loud activity with children well either. She likes her world calm and quiet. She can handle a lot of activity with dogs, but not with people!
Ghira is still young and we would love to have a person or family adopt her who would commit to helping Ghira ‘come out of her shell’ by consistently working to socialize her with more people and more situations. With patience and love we think she will live a long and happy life and she will bring lots of joy and love to a lucky family.
If you think Ghira might be the perfect pup for you, please go to, click on Forms/Application and complete your adoption application online.
We are an all-volunteer group, so please be patient and understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions and home visits. You can expedite the process by providing accurate email addresses for all your references. Time to make phone calls is limited and we often have 10 or more applications in process. We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible.

When your application is approved, we will schedule a meet-and-greet to see if Ghira picks you too.
If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption fee, and an adoption contract to be signed.
Please feel free to email or call 434 841 0411 or 540 297 1590 if you have additional questions.
