Helping death-row, abused, and neglected dogs find forever homes. We do not discriminate by breed, age or special needs. As long as we’re capable of helping out, we will never say no!
Beautiful little Violet is ready for adoption! Violet is an adorable 3.5 year old French Bulldog! Her foster mom says that in many ways, she’s the easiest dog that she’s fostered yet. She’s a very shy girl that initially took coaxing to emerge from her airplane transport crate. Whereas previous foster dogs went bursting out as soon as the crate door opened and explored the yard gleefully, Violet trembled inside her crate, reluctant to explore her new world of freedom. But she’s gradually gaining confidence. Her foster mom took her to dog parks and discovered that she’s curious and unafraid of dogs, big and small. She goes on social outings and loves being cuddled by new friends. And she loves children and happily lets them carry her around, pet her, and feed her treats.
Violet was initially terrified of going on walks because of the loud traffic and showed fear crossing streets, but she’s now walking well on a leash and eagerly trotting around the block with lots of energy. She is 95% potty trained and should continue receiving lots of positive reinforcement for her outdoor activities. She has free roam of the house now but should be monitored because she likes to nibble on intriguing things like fringes on rugs. She is an incredibly sweet girl that runs happily in off-leash dog parks, and doesn’t bark except the occasional happy bark while she’s playing outdoors with her big bulldog foster brother and other dogs.
With adult humans, she can be initially very shy, pancaked to the ground and fearful. But with patience, soothing voices, and gentle hands, this former puppy mill mama has learned that humans will never hurt her again. She has bouts of goofy high energy and zoomies, but for the most part, she prefers sleeping quietly in her bed or chewing happily on a bully stick. She shows no signs of dog aggression, food aggression, toy aggression (although she delights in stealing her foster brother’s stuffies and hiding them in her bed!), or people aggression.
Violet’s ideal home would have a small yard for her love of suntanning and zoomies, a nurturing, patient human that’s home most of the day, a friendly dog sibling for play, and gentle children. Please help sweet Violet continue blossoming and exploring the wonders of her new world. We are looking for a home who understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a dog as a member of their family. Violet is patiently watiing!
If you have extra time on your hand and would like to help please consider volunteering! Rescue groups need dedicated volunteers to help with events, fundraisers, home checks, transports, etc. All of these things help enable the rescue to expand their network and help more dogs in need.
