'Hello, friend! My name is Ciabatta and I'm the sweetest, most goodest pup around. Don't tell the other dogs at the shelter, but the gossip is that I'm the kennel managers favorite dog here right now. I am an around 2 year old HUNK that came to SVASC and was never reclaimed. I'm so handsome and sweet, so I don't really understand why my family didn't ever come get me, but oh well. I'm a big boy at around 75 pounds, so I don't think that I would make a great apartment dog, even if I consider myself a lapdog. I'm a total lover and really enjoy being right with my person. I do appear to be house-trained and keep my kennel run pretty tidy. I do need some work on my leash manners, but am a smart cookie! I can be a little picky about my doggy friends. Very small dogs seem to be a no-go and I don't love when other dogs are way over the top, but a sensible, medium-sized pooch, with his head screwed on right would probably be okay. Please bring any potential furiends to meet me before taking me home. I also seem to do okay with kids, as long as said children don't mind slobbery kisses! My adoption fee is $125 to an approved adopter. If you would like more information on me, please give SVASC a call at (540) 943-5142 or stop by the shelter during open hours. SVASC is located at 1001 Mt. Torrey Rd. Lyndhurst, VA.'
