Velvet is a gentle, loving young mother whose done an outstanding job of raising her five puppies. Now that they are on their own she can dedicate all of her time to trying to climb up into your lap or give you a hug!
She is currently in foster care where she spends her days basking in the sun and nights cuddling in whatever chair, couch, or bed her foster owners happen to be in. She is one of the sweetest dogs out there, even while driving her favorite place to rest her head is on your shoulder!
Velvet is very smart and always apologetic when she misbehaves. She's fully potty trained and will always do her business outside if she is given the opportunity. She's very smart and quickly learns tricks and commands, especially if she's motivated by a treat!
Velvet is very excited and intrigued by other dogs, and is getting better every day at playing with them. She is never aggressive, but sometimes a little too curious and can upset her playmates, which is something that she's working on. She would do best in a home that had another dog that she could learn from, as it really seems like she's longing for another pup to live with.
Velvet is not a fan of cats, and they are not a fan of her either. However, she is absolutely great with kids! She's a very sweet, gentle girl who always looks for attention and never plays rough. She would do great in a family setting with a yard and another dog to interact with.
Let Velvet give you a hug today! You can see for yourself if your home is a good fit for her.
