Facts about Vivienne (Sweet Angel)

  • Breed: Beagle/Dachshund Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 6853821

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.

About The Fuzzy Pet Foundation - (TFPF)

About Our Rescue Group...

Founded in 2005, Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc. (FR) is a nonprofit animal rescue group. FR is organized by volunteers who are dedicated to saving homeless animals, reducing the rate of pet overpopulation, and educating the general public on animal welfare issues. Currently, our animals are fostered in a home environment by compassionate, pet-loving volunteers, as opposed to being boarded in kennels; this way we are able to socialize and work with each rescue animal on an individual basis. Our goal is to raise enough funds to establish a facility where we can house animals in a cage-free environment. We also wish to provide permanent, long-term care for senior and/or special needs dogs and cats in our future rescue facility.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Once you select an animal, you will be asked to complete an application form. Should you have any specific questions related to the application or the animal of interest, please contact us via e-mail.

2. Upon approval of your application, you will be contacted (via phone or e-mail) to be scheduled for a “meet and greet” with the animal at one of our adoption locations, and an orientation session with one of our adoptions counselors.

Please Note: We reserve the right to refuse an adoption to any family that we feel is not an ideal match for our animal. We also reserve the right to keep our reasons for denied applicants within our organization.

3. There will be a home-check for potential adoptions to ensure that the animal will be living in a safe and secure environment.

4. You will then be asked to sign a legally-binding contract with Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc., and to pay an adoption/donation fee.

5. Once all requirements are fulfilled, the animal will be released to you.

Please Note: If for any reason you are unable to keep or provide adequate care for the animal, we require that you return him/her back to Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc. Our animals are NOT to be transferred, sold, or given to a third-party.
