Poor Vivienne was rescued from the dumpster as a stray dog. It appeared that she had been badly beaten and neglected. Even her eyes tell us a storybook full of sad tales... Many of her teeth were somehow knocked out and she was suffering from horrible skin infections that left her raw and sore. She was missing a lot of her fur and had bloody scratches on her abdomen area. Her glands appeared swollen and we even suspected she had cancer.
The Fuzzy Pet Foundation discovered that Vivienne had a microchipped, but sadly, it was never registered. If only we could trace this microchip to Vivienne's previous 'owner,' we could involve law enforcement to further investigate this blatant case of animal abuse.
Now, Vivienne's skin has cleared up and she has a clean bill of health. She underwent major dental work and can now eat and drink without any issues. She was spayed, vaccinated, and given a full blood panel. She has a healthy appetite!
Because of the trauma Vivienne experienced prior to rescue, she really needs a special home. She can be fearful of strangers and lunge out of fear. But she will quickly get over this fear and become your best friend! Vivienne gets very attached to the people who care for her, and will follow them around everywhere! At the same time, she can be very independent and is never demanding. She will be a very loyal companion to that lucky adopter who invites her home. Vivienne is excellent on leash, loves to go on walks, jumps for joy at the beach, and enjoys laying on cozy, plush blankets. She's not crazy about being picked up, but we are working on this with Vivienne.
An ideal home for Vivienne would consist of a home-body type guardian. Someone who enjoys spending time at home with his/her pet. Vivienne should not be around rambunctious children due to her past trauma. She thrives on daily walks with a guardian who is patient, compassionate, and willing and able to open his/her heart to a dog who really needs a special someone.
