Hi! Vivian is my name. My best guess is that I am a mix of an Italian Greyhound and who knows what else. I have super long legs and I am very slender like an Italian Greyhound. What do you think?

I'm approximately 2 1/2 years old and I weigh about 15 pounds. I'm a petite girl built for traveling! I'd love to join you on all of your adventures.

I am already spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. I'm just waiting for you to come pick me up!

I would describe myself as outgoing, playful, and friendly. I try to make new friends everywhere I go. I just love people and I get along great with other dogs, too! I'm the whole package.

What is known of my past is pretty sad. I first came into a local high-kill shelter as a stray. I had bleeding, painful sores all over my body. The staff at the shelter put me on medication and ran some skin tests, but everything came back normal. They decided to observe me and see if things got better, and thankfully, they did!

After just a week at the shelter, I got the best news ever. I was getting adopted! I was so happy. My life really seemed to be turning around. However, not even a month later my adopter dropped me off at the same shelter I was adopted from. And, guess what? I was covered in sores again!

Once again, the shelter treated me for the infection and after just a short time, I started looking better again. You're never going to believe this, though. After nearly two weeks at the shelter, my previous owner, the one who dumped me, decided to redeem me. So, I left the shelter once again with the hope that my future would be bright and full of love.

I spent 3 months at home and then one day, I found myself on the streets of LA. Whether I got out on my own or my owner let me go is unknown. Either way, I wound up back at the shelter - covered with sores - again! This time, though, my owner never came to get me. That's when CageFree stepped up to rescue me. They brought me to their facility and vowed to find me another home where I'll be loved and cared for like I deserve.

You've probably noticed from my photos and video that I still have some bare spots on my back and face. The skin infection has cleared, but I'm still missing hair. There is a chance that, due to the repeated infections, my skin is scarred and the hair won't grow back, but only time will tell. I don't think it makes me any less cute and it doesn't affect my personality one bit!

If you think that I would make a great addition to your family, please don't hesitate to contact CageFree and tell them you want to meet me. I am so excited to find a forever home!

About CageFree K-9 Rescue Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

CageFree K-9 Rescue Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit no-kill all-breed dog rescue group located in Los Angeles. We're dedicated to finding great homes for great dogs. The majority of our rescues come from the many Los Angeles animal shelters and are screened for temperament and sociability. We focus on pulling "red-listed" dogs before they are euthanized by high-kill local shelters. We ensure that each and every dog in our care receives the medical attention and emotional support they need until they are placed with their new forever family! All of our dogs are vaccinated, microchipped and spayed/neutered prior to placement.

We show our dogs by appointment at our facility in West Los Angeles. Please e-mail us or call 424-258-4150 if you're interested in meeting one of our available dogs.
