She was at the Valencia County shelter not long ago, and her life sucked. Not because of the shelter, but because of the humans who took her there. She had an abcessed tooth (ouch), and painfully overgrown nails. We're talking overgrown to the point that she could barely walk. She was surrendered because she wouldn't stay in the yard. Somehow, we have a hard time believing it.
Viv has a new lease on life now that she has kicked that icky tooth to the curb, and has gotten her nails trimmed a few times. She LOVES to play ball, she's good with other pups and kitties too, and she puts herself to bed at 9 pm every night. She likes to go for easy strolls, nap in the sunshine, and lay on soft things.
Our Viv is looking for a family over her own to make her golden years sparkle. Could it be you? Fill out an adoption application here: www.viva-nm.org/adopt.html ❤️
