Some dogs come to the shelter never having known love and kindness, but that is not the case with today’s Pet of the Week, Violet. You see, before coming to Green Hills Animal Shelter Violet had a home where she was loved beyond measure, but when her owner passed away unexpectedly Violet and another canine friend, Ash, were brought to the shelter in hopes that they would be able to find new homes where their hearts could mend and their lives would again be filled love. Ash has since been adopted, but Violet is still waiting for that special person or family who is meant just for her.
Violet, a Boxer mix who we believe to be around 5 years old, is a friendly and affectionate girl whose previous life of love with her owner shines through in her loving personality. She has the most beautiful, trusting heart and loves attention and petting. Violet’s favorite game is fetch and she will happily play as long as you are willing, proudly bringing the ball back to you every single time! Violet’s gentle, loving personality will make her a great fit in any home; she would do well as a single person’s loyal sidekick or as a well-loved friend in a family with children.
If Violet could describe her perfect Forever Home, she would tell us that she is yearning to be back in a home where she will once again be loved beyond measure. She would like to remain an indoor dog (this smart girl is already house-trained!) and get to spend lots of time cuddling with her family on the couch. She would like to once again live a life filled with kind words, fun-filled games of fetch, and lots of petting. She would very much enjoy having a canine companion in her new home, and she would also be content to share her home with gentle children. Her biggest wish is just to be loved and back in a home of her own.
Violet will go to her Forever Home spayed, dewormed, heartworm tested, and up to date on all vaccinations including rabies. She has a heart full of love that she is just waiting to give to a family of her own; could that family be yours?
