Meet Violet

I was wandering around the gym parking lot, feeling down-on-my luck when I spotted him. I ran up to him with my tail wagging, looked up with my big brown eyes, and nuzzled his leg. Then I followed him to his car and jumped on in. Any place he could take me would be better than here. It was starting to get cold and I was hungry. This was the start of my rescue story.

I wasn’t the prettiest. My body had seen better days. My girlish figure was all gone – you could see all of my ribs sticking out! I had spots of missing fur all over my body. Pesky ringworm. It’s hard to keep those guys away when you’re living on the street. I got taken to a nice vet to fix me all up. Besides the ring-worm, he found out I was suffering from the dreaded Heartworm. Before treating the heartworm, I wanted to get spayed so that I could try to find a forever home. Unfortunately, I had one more hurdle to overcome on my story. While waking up from surgery, I suffered from a pulmonary embolism (due to a heartworm dislodging). Luckily the nice vet was able to save me! All I want is a human of my own to love on. I have completed my heartworm treatment, healthy, and ready to go to my forever home! I am a goofy clown who loves making you laugh. I love to smile and wag my tail constantly. I try to be really good and listen to my foster parents. I always sit for my food and to go out on the leash. I am working on potty training. I am dog friendly and kids friendly but have not yet been tested on cats. Despite all of my positive qualities, I know I may look scary to some people. I promise I am not scary! I love all people and want to be best friends with any new person I meet. I promise if you give a girl like me a chance, I will be your best friend forever. I want a family of my own – please give me a chance!

I am up to date on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped.
