Adopt a Furry Friend: Pam Beasley

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Meet our furry friend of the week — Pam Beasley.


This fun-loving dog will be a good match for an active home. She is one and a half years old, spayed, and medium sized — weighing 46 pounds.

Tabitha Treloar with the Richmond SPCA describes Pam Beasley as a young and active girl who is still very “puppy-like.”

Pam Beasley is a part of the MYM Canine-ality program.


For dogs, the MYM assessment evaluates how they do when left alone, interest in toys, prior knowledge of commands, overall energy and manners.

The survey for adopters asks about prior experience with dogs, other people and animals in the home, desire for a playful or a laid back dog, interest in canine sports, and other criteria. Survey results give a color-coded MYM category (purple, orange or green) that corresponds with the Canine-ality categories assigned to the dogs. Take the adopter survey online here.

Pam Beasley is a part of the green Goofball Canine-ality category. Goofball is described as:

I’m a fun-loving, happy-all-the-time, glass-is-half-full kind of dog looking for someone who loves to laugh and play around. Must have a great sense of humor and some time to spend with me. I’m a dog on a mission to please you. (Socially motivated)


Whether the adopter falls in love with a pet in his or her own color category or another, the information in both the dog assessment and adopter survey help the adoption counselors provide guidance to help set expectations as the family and dog adjust to one another at home.

Treloar says Pam Beasley is still working on learning manners and training classes at the Richmond SPCA would be a great option for her.


Pam Beasley loves almost any toy and will play by herself or with her owner. She also does well playing with other dogs of similar energy and size.

If the future adopter of Pam Beasley has another dog at home, the Richmond SPCA’s adoption counselors will help with an introduction to Pam Beasley.

Meet Pam Beasley at the Robins-Starr Humane Center at 2519 Hermitage Road, or call 804-521-1307.
