I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Hi everyone, my name is Velma and I am 15 weeks old. I am a Rottie mix. My Mama was a Rottie mix and my Daddy was a Dobie/Lab mix but I have a little bit of white on my paws. I am very sweet but quiet & timid girl. Where my siblings are friendly and outgoing I am the quiet pup in the group. I prefer to be by myself and will be crawled up in my corner. I do like to be held but I am very scared. When I came into my foster home my foster Mom noticed I am a very timid girl & she is trying to socialize me to her family, to the other dogs and her kids. It’s taking baby steps. Maybe I just was never around people or I was abused. I don’t have any physical scars but I am a very shy girl. I hope this doesn’t make you not want to give me a chance because if you look into my pretty eyes you can see I need & desperately deserve a forever home. I just need someone to love me. I came into my foster care because I, siblings & my Auntie needed help. See, our owners had a bunch of dogs and they weren’t taking care of us. They reached out to a shelter but unfortunately it was down South and those shelters are kill-shelters. Someone there knew an IAR Volunteer and they helped us. My siblings & I are quiet pups and like to just lay around. Our foster Mom is teaching this thing called “potty training”. We go outside a lot which is helping our potty training. I don’t think I will grow to be very big because my Aunt is not very big – she’s medium size so who knows. I’m ready to be in my forever home so all you have to do is fill out an adoption application & then you and I can meet up. I really hope you can do that. I’ll be hanging out here & learning some socialization. Please don’t overlook me. You’ll look into my eyes & you’ll see a sweet girl that needs a loving home. Please go to www.illinoisanimalrescue.org. I hope to meet you soon! Xoxo, Velma.
