Violet is a calm, lower energy, more petite girl and a gentle soul who loves being right next to her person. (Although she is slowly coming out of her shell and showing how happy she can truly be. Especially around meal times!) She has an infectious smile and her entire body wiggles when she is happy to see you! She likes to leisurely investigate new sights and sounds and enjoys long walks. Violet walks beautifully on leash and is living in a home with 3 cats and 2 children. She barely notices the kitties! Violet seems to do well with other, friendly dogs that do not invade her space. (Proper intros are always a must!) While at the shelter, she was always interested in dogs in the other play yards, however did not feel the need to engage with them. Violet is still somewhat shy after coming out of the stressful shelter environment and would appreciate time and patience when meeting new people, dogs and being in new places. She is getting used to car rides too! Violet is affectionate and would do best with a family who can help her build her confidence and give her the love and attention she so deserves. Violet is nighttime crate trained and sleeps quietly in her foster parent's room. Violet is housetrained and really enjoys being a total couch potato in her bed most of the day when not out walking or rolling in the grass. She loves to show off her "sit" and "shake" commands for you! If you're interested in adopting Violet, please email her foster mommy Fern at firstname.lastname@example.org.
