Virginia has an adorable scruffy coat that people find irresistible. She started out oh-so-shy, but with a little help from her friends, she's learning that people can be wonderful. Although she is still shy and fearful with strangers, and is considered a flight risk, Virginia does warm up to new people, and she will start to trust in time. Virginia also does amazingly well with a doggie role model. As long as she has a confident friend to show her the way, she can do just about anything. Once she's comfortable, she shows her silly side and loves to play with toys and other dogs. Virginia was born in 2016 and came to Best Friends from a No More Homeless Pets Network partner shelter. She's working on her socialization at the Sanctuary by meeting new people and going for walks. She is still coming out of her shell and is sure to blossom a whole lot more.
