Lightning is a Roanoke Valley SPCA Canine Ambassador who helps with our Humane Education and visiting Pets programs. Lightning was adopted from the Roanoke Valley SPCA in 2022. As a puppy in at the shelter, he went to a wonderful foster home for a couple weeks so he could grow big and strong – and they fell in love with him and decided to adopt! Lightning is a mix of Belgian Malinois, Chinese Sharpei, German Shepherd, Australian Cattledog, and Red Bone Coonhound. Lightning is in training to become a Therapy Dog and volunteers as a Canine Ambassador at the RVSPCA with his mom. Lighting does agility training and hopes to compete in trials one day. He loves kisses, attention, and treats! If you’d like Lightning to visit your facility, please send an email to
