UPDATE 9/24/16: 


Victoria is a beautiful little Fox Hound (mix) who is about 4 years old and weighs about 50 pounds.  She was picked up as a stray (in December 2015) with ribs showing and a large hernia.  We had her hernia repaired and got her spayed.  She has been waiting for her forever home since then!


Volunteers took Victoria up to a Wintergreen Festival on Memorial Day and these are some of the words written by her handler (also our photographer!), Astrid, that day:  “I was particularly impressed with Victoria as she was the dog I walked.  She was friendly with other dogs and actually seemed a bit interested in meeting some of them.  That said, she was at her best with the young children: she stood calmly and was extremely patient, it must be those mama dog instincts.  


She was also very friendly with people of all ages and politely engaged all of the dog lovers that crossed her path.  She had no issues with the loud music and walked calmly towards the stage.  She happily showed off her training: sit & down (particularly when there was a hamburger that she thought she could win over).  She rode very well crated in the van too: no noise, no drooling, no fuss and waited patiently to be fed & unloaded from the van.  


Victoria made many friends at the Wintergreen event and while none of them were looking to adopt I did ask them to pass on her information to help make her famous!”


Victoria is very much “a lady” and doesn’t seem to bark a lot like some other dogs do.  She is very easy to be around…and she is VERY AFFECTIONATE with people.  She enjoys being petted, brushed, receiving butt rubs, and eating COOKIES!
