Vilonia is a gorgeous black Lab mix, who was found trying to cross a busy highway with her 13 puppies following close behind. She was a great mother to her puppies. Very protective and playful. Since the adoption of her puppies, she has become a nurturing mother to other young puppies in our rescue program. She not only mothers them, but tries to play with them. It is the cutest thing.
Violonia loves to go for car rides. She is usually the first pooch to load up when the van door opens. She's most happy with people. Will make an excellent companion dog. Has a strong personality and is an alpha dog. Does get along with most dogs, but guards her food, which is nothing unusual for a rescue do, who has had to fend for themselves.
She appears to be two years old. Does not tear, or chew up furniture.
She is heartworm negative and has had a Pro-heart shot for the prevention of heartworms.
