Violet is a beautiful Border Collie
mix with a very soft, thick coat. We believe she might be mixed with
Labrador Retriever. She is a sweet girl who is on the shy side, but
who has learned that the world is a safe and fun place.
Violet was a favorite of the staff at
the shelter where she was taken after being picked up. They begged
for her to be saved. At first, she didn’t know how to walk on a
leash and would crawl on her belly when she was in a new situation.
Although she loves to be petted by people, she was scared to go for
a walk in the neighborhood or to take treats from strangers. In
order to help Violet with her shyness, she began taking a medication
to help her become less anxious.
Violet now enjoys going out to new
places and meeting new people, including children. She loves playing
with the other dogs in the foster home, chasing and wrestling with
them. Most of all, she loves being close to her foster mom, cuddling
and being petted. She learned pretty quickly that sitting politely
gets her petted instead of jumping up on people. She sometimes gets
a little jealous if the other dogs seek attention from the foster
Violet is healthy and is up to date
on all vaccinations and heartworm preventive. She has tested
negative for heartworms. Her hips have been x-rayed and they are in
good shape. She has been spayed. She is crate trained.
Violet will do well with a family
that will show her lots of love and patience. She responds well to
positive training. She could be an only dog or she could be placed
with another dog. She should not be placed with a cat, however, as I
believe she would chase them.
If you think that you could provide
the right home for Violet, please fill out our adoption application
