Meet Thumper, an adorable Dalmatian/Pit Bull mix that weighs 45 pounds and is about three years old. Thumper is very much still a sweet puppy and loves to play, run, and play some more! She has the sweetest face with precious expressions and ears! She came from a high-kill shelter where she was picked up as a stray and was out of time when CCDAL agreed to take her in.

Thumper ran around the yard with another CCDAL adopted dog, Tank:

She hung out with the ten year old boy in the house:

She was told what a pretty girl she was:

She played with her tennis ball:

Finally, she played with one of her many toys:

As you can see, Thumper is a very happy, social girl who would love to have a family to call her own and maybe even a four legged buddy to play with. She has a lot of energy and loves to run which is evident by the well defined muscles on her back end. She is very smart and is learning obedience and manners in her foster home and we are sure she will pick up on basic commands very quickly. She is already crate trained and loves to ride in the car.

If you think Thumper is the right dog for you and your family and you live in Virginia, please fill out an application. Thumper will come microchipped and fully vetted--spayed, all vaccines, heartworm negative, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. The family will need to invest in a crate since she is very much a puppy, and whe will need a place to sleep and safely stay when her family is not home. Her new family will also need to continue with her obedience training.
