Owner's Name: Stella
Why my Pet is Noble: I got Stella when she was 4 months old. Although she has gotten bigger, her wrinkles and sweet face have not changed. Stella thinks she has the nose of a German Shepard and sniffs everything on her (slow) walks. It's a tie between her favorite things, sleeping or eating. She snores like a trucker and gobbles up all her meals as if it's a contest. She has the sweetest disposition, and loves everyone, especially if they have treats. Her butt wiggles and snorts are her favorite way to show her love! She's always excited when she sees the staff at BAH!
Owner's Name: Ashley Hudson
Why my Pet is Noble: Cleo and her siblings were found in Mississippi after the owner had abandoned them. I adopted Cleo in April of 2007. She has lived in Alabama, North Carolina and now in Virginia Beach. She is a true diva and the ruler of our house. Even our 86 pound golden retriever doesn't mess with her. Her favorite things to do are bird watch and snuggle. She also loves good cat nip. She loves that I am working from home and spends the majority of her day in my office. She definitely my baby girl and I couldn't imagine life without her.
Owner's Name: Jen Costelloe

Why my Pet is Noble: My name is Henry. I’m a Great Pyrenees mix from the mountains of West Virginia. I love to go on walks, chase squirrels and treats! I am very wary and hesitant of strangers but when you win me over I’ll be your best bud. Dr. Johnson and his team did just that! I was recently in an accident with the UPS truck and would like to thank Dr. Johnson and everyone at Birdneck Animal Hospital for taking such great care of me!

I will always love Bella now and when she passes the rainbow bridge. There will never be another Miss B.
Owner's Name: Megan Waters
Why my Pet is Noble: We found Stormi in Virginia Beach. My husband and I haven't had a dog since we were kids so we were very happy when we got the chance to get one. There was a litter of puppies and she was the one climbing over the rest to get our attention. She won our heart and has been that crazy pup ever since. She is so loving and fun, but Frenchies come with a list of things to be aware of and Dr. Johnson and the staff have been so great at helping us through everything, even the littlest of things.

Why my Pet is Noble: Our boy Norman is an 8 month old, 127 lb Newfoundland. He is a big, furry, clumsy bundle of love. Norman enjoys slow walks at at the beach and playing with his “cousins”, Jackson, a German shepherd and Banks, a golden retriever.
Owner's Name: Gabrielle Brutus
Why my Pet is Noble: We adopted Loki when he was 5 weeks old from Hope For Life Rescue. He was abandoned, along with 3 siblings in a field in NC. Despite being infested with mites, infections and a tapeworm, Loki has never let on that he wasn't feeling well. He is energetic and playful. He fits in with our chaotic family.
He loves to play fetch, run around the yard chasing birds, walks on the beach, but most of all he loves to cuddle. He is just a happy puppy.
Owner's Name: Alexis Wescott
Why my Pet is Noble: The day we adopted Bali from early medical retirement from Iraq/Afghanistan was a huge day for us! He was so calm, well behaved and independent – completely different than our other dogs. With lots of patience, reassurance, plenty of toys and love he came out of his working dog demeanor! Despite his health issues he's the most lovable, cuddly and overall sweetest boy! Dr. Johnson helped us decrease his medications that was prescribed and put onto newer medications that has Bali doing a complete 180! He's running around and learning to play like our other dogs now.
| Name: Roxi
Owner's Name: Mitch Barlow
Why my Pet is Noble: Roxi has fought a valiant fight for many years now. She had a broken leg as a puppy. She came down with Parvo (also as a puppy). After many very healthy and happy years Dr. Johnson has performed many surgeries on Roxi But unfortunately she wasn't able to overcome this last one. Which is the ONLY fight that she has EVER lost. She is such a strong pup. She loved to steal my socks and to chase any ball or FRISBEE that you would dare throw for her. Roxi was always the alpha dog in our house, who protected us!
| Name: Henry
Owner's Name: Savannah Perry
Why my Pet is Noble: "I'm Henry, or, "King Henry the Ate,". Most of the time, I am very well-behaved and know lots of tricks. My favorite treats are carrots, hot-dog pieces (I can't believe mom feeds me dogs!). A perfect day for me is breakfast, a walk on the beach where we play fetch, a nap, play with my best doggy fur-iend, and then lay in mom's lap and we snuggle. You can give me a follow @henry.the.ate to see lots of cute pics, funny videos, and maybe a few training bloopers. I love my Birdneck family and always get excited when I visit!"
|| Name: Ray
Owner's Name: Sheellah Kennedy
Why my Pet is Noble: My name is "Ray," short for Rayquaza, the legendary dragon Pokemon. I am a 5-year-old bearded dragon that loves pretty much everything. I love spending time in my mom's reading room. There is a comfy green chair by a window that I like looking out. I love books with pictures of bugs! She also has a few superhero books, but did you know not all superheroes wear capes? The staff at Birdneck are my superheroes. They took great care of me when I got sick with a respiratory infection. My family is very thankful their superpowers get me healthy again.

Owner's Name: Shay Kamme
Why my Pet is Noble: Cookie has been through a lot lately but she never fails to make me smile. She's a smart street cat-not afraid of anything, even though she's almost deaf. Loves going for walks & cuddling all night. Never met a piece of shrimp or chicken that she didn't like!
Owner's Name: Donna Nagel
Why my Pet is Noble: Hazel is our beloved 15+ year old puppy. She was adopted from a shelter when she was 3 years old. What a wonderful addition she has been to our family all these years.

Owner's Name: Jeffery Zimmerman
Why my Pet is Noble: Luna came into our lives in 2013 when we first moved to Texas. After talking to us, the worker brought us right to Luna as he knew we'd be the perfect match. She was found dirty, pregnant, and had gotten attacked in the shelter right after giving birth, and was not looking right at us with those typical Luna eyes. One cross-country move and six years later, she's still loving on everybody she ever meets, we secretly think all of our friends like Luna more then us. She loves car rides, chewing on tennis balls, looking out the window, and...sleep!
Owner's Name: Wendi Steele
Why my Pet is Noble: Paco was the runt of his litter. He weighed only half of what his litter mates did. He fit in my coat pocket when he was a puppy. He loves his basket and hardly ever leaves home without it. He can be a little scared sometimes but once he gets use to you he loves the attention.
Owner's Name: Alexis Wescott
Why my Pet is Noble: When they handed us the smallest shiba we had ever seen, needless to say, we were surprised. He's continued to surprise us every day since then! With his spunky personality of rough-housing with his two bigger brothers, the stereotypical Shiba scream when you try to clip his nails (ask the staff at BAH), how you can't pet him without him lifting his arm for his preferred chest scratches, all the way to going through a major hip surgery at three years old and zooming around the house two months after. Jeremy is the little light in our lives.
|Name: Da Vinci
Owner's Name: Elaine Wareing
Why my Pet is Noble: On a cold rainy night in 2007, I finally trapped this very feral cat. He was quite thin and had an eye injury. Immediately, I rushed him to a vet. When I brought him home, he was released into my sunroom where he spent the next three months before he felt brave enough to join my cat family! Fast forward: Da Vinici is now quite a demanding, loving lap kitty who sleeps with me. With the dedication by Dr. Johnson and his amazing staff, he has survived some health challenges. Da Vinci is an incredible feline and I adore him!
Owner's Name: Patrick Loud
Why my Pet is Noble: He was born in NC somewhere, only to be abandoned by his family. He stayed alive by catching whatever he could for food and begging from people on the boardwalk. He was found by people at Birdneck shelter. His cage needed to be covered whenever other dogs walked past him because of his territorial nature. He didnt like other animals but people were his favorite. He plays with his cousin and is getting better at meeting new friends. He’s been up and down the east coast and across country twice. He’s now living his best life.
Owner's Name: Teles Dardenne
Why my Pet is Noble: Congo is a 15 month old Basenji. The breed is known for being " barkless". He doesn't bark but he can yodel. They are an ancient breed from Africa and were used to hunt lions. Congo loves getting into trouble around the house and playing with his dog friends at the park. He has spent a lot of time endearing himself to Dr. Johnson and his staff due to some viral papilloma but despite being poked, prodded and frequently put in the cone of shame he still enjoys the attention of going to the Vet.
