Name: Lola

Owner's Name: Chris and Lucy Mould

Why My Pet is Noble:
We have loved sweet Lola since the second we met her. She's had a rough start in life and despite it, this beagle loves hard! She has had more than her fair share of health problems however with the wonderful care of Dr. Johnson and the amazing team, we know she will have a long, happy and healthy life. She spends most of her days snuggled up on the sofa, occasionally getting down to choose a toy from her toy box or to play with her doggy sister Darcey. We all utterly adore you Miss Lola!


Name: Elly May

Owner's Name: Robert and Kristi Jones

Why My Pet is Noble:
Elly May is new to the area. We believe she is about 5 years old and is either a Walker Hound or an American Fox Hound. She was abandoned so we adopted her from the Heritage Humane Society in Williamsburg. She is making the transition from pack hunter to a condo companion. We renamed her Elly May after the character played by Donna Douglas on the Beverly Hillbillies. She brings a country kind of "chill" to the North End but promises to rise from the cushions and defend our beaches from encroachment by deer should that become necessary!

His recovery was quick and he is back to his fun loving and energetic lifestyle.

She loves everybody and everything and at times is a total goofball. We love her dearly.

After she married and took him to live with her and her husband, we missed him so much she felt sorry for us and let him live come live with us knowing she could see him as often as she wanted.

His hobbies are chasing rabbits, going to the beach, rummaging through the garbage when we aren't looking and stealing food from the counters.

The joy Dr Johnson & his staff showed when Dude finally made it to a good place could NOT have been faked, they care as much as we do for our babies.


Owner's Name: Dee Dee Boone

Why My Pet is Noble: 
Charlie has taken over our home and our hearts. We picked him up in January 2014, made it through yellow snow and chewed up molding, and are finally experimenting with letting him have the run of the house. We took the leap into the world of dog ownership to help our children overcome their fear of dogs and it definitely worked. Charlie loves bacon, chasing squirrels, and long walks. We recently had a big scare when he had a close encounter with a pick-up truck, which only reaffirmed how entrenched he is in our hearts. We love you Charlie!

Sam is my protector and my best buddy and from the first day I ever had him he has slept in the very same spot at pillow, the same one I sleep on. Sam brings joy and laughter to our little family every single day and we are so blessed to have him.

Checkers was at the point of amputation from one vet. However, Dr. Johnson and his loving, caring staff not only saved his left foot, but Checkers is doing what dogs love most, being a kid! He lays on his back when taking a bath, while massaging and washing his tummy. He is a sweet little boy!

Why My Pet is Noble: Molly was adopted from the Virginia Beach SPCA in August 2014. Our family stopped at the grocery store one Friday evening, saw her outside the store working at an outreach event, and brought her home Saturday afternoon. She enjoys walks on the beach, playing with her puppy-brother Charlie, chewing on her stuffed animal pig from “Angry Birds,” and sleeping with her entire body underneath the blanket. She is great at cuddling, and that more than makes up for her (sometimes very loud) snoring. We love our Molly!


Name: Dean Underwood

Owner's Name: Sioux

Why My Pet is Noble: Sioux began her life as a stray cat in the salt marshes of Virginia Beach. After being a single mom to a litter of kittens, she decided it was time to find a cozy home with a loving human to care for her. Sioux went on a crash diet, matted her fur with mud and some fleas for "bling" and started searching for a purrfect home. As luck would have it, she found her "sucker" and she now has everything she needs and more! Sioux recently underwent surgery and thanks to Dr. Johnson, will be on the prowl soon. MEOW!

She had suffered abuse and her last Vet recommended that she not be adopted out again. To this day she still has some trust issues but once someone proves worthy of it she is extremely affectionate.

Why My Pet is Noble: Tess was born on June 2, 2001 in Virginia Beach. Her breeder described her as the "saucy" one in the litter and over the last 13 years she has lived up to that moniker! Tess loves the beach and even at the age of 13 she has no fear when it comes to the waves. She also loves chasing a ball although she doesn't always deliver it back to the one who threw it! What she really loves is her food. Her love and devotion to our family will be her legacy. Tess' human siblings complain that she has surpassed them as "the favorite child!"


Name: Izzy

Owner's Name: Anne Meachum

Why My Pet is Noble: Izzy has made me laugh, been by my side, & taught me what unconditional love is since the day that I rescued her. She loves road trips and camping.

It's been a blessing to find Dr. Johnson and his amazing staff who have helped her in so many ways. She's loved by so many. I'm lucky to have had so many years with my best friend!

Why My Pet is Noble: After spending too long in a pound, Princeton was adopted in 2009 from a rescue group in Chicago, IL. When Princeton is not spending time with his buddy Dr. Johnson and the wonderful staff at Birdneck Animal Hospital, he enjoys going for long walks, hanging out in sunny patches, and nibbling on broccoli stalks. Princeton is a “people” dog; happy to tag along on an adventure or just snuggle on the couch, as long as he has people he is happy. Princeton’s motto: “All you need is a spot of sunshine, some broccoli, and a good scratch above the tail”.
