Radar - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Norfolk Animal Care Center, Norfolk, VA.

My fiance, Gary, and I adopted Radar, a three-year-old Beagle/Pointer mix. Within about five minutes, this beautifully behaved, intelligent and loving dog had stolen our hearts completely. He loves to explore the backyard, relax in our recliner, and showers us with affection as we do him. Our sweet dog loves meeting new people and is a wonderful companion. Although we were warned he might be a destroyer of furniture and high strung, we don't see any evidence of it as he is the most placid dog ever. I never expected him to acclimate to us so quickly and this experience really proved to me what a rewarding experience it is to adopt a shelter animal. The Norfolk Animal Care Center staff was great, the adoption process was quick and easy, and we could not be happier!
