Facts about Viv

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Viv is a lovely, older Lab lady. It isn't polite to discuss age, but in the interests of being honest, she is 12.

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 ❤️

About Viva NM Rural Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Viva NM Rural Animal Rescue is a group of volunteers dedicated to saving homeless and abandoned pets in rural high volume shelters. We hope to not only decrease the number of dogs and cats that are euthanized through rescue and adoption but also educate the population overall about the importance of spay and neuter programs. We do not have a facility, our rescue is strictly foster-home based.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Our Adoption Process...

All animals are sterilized, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. We require an initial adoption application, once accepted pets may be adopted with an approved home check and signed adoption contract. Our adoption fee is generally $200.00, but this may vary in special cases. We do not do out of state adoptions.
