Facts about Violet

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
This little munchkin ended up in rescue when her veterinarian contacted us. Her former owner surrendered her when she had become pregnant and had complications during birth. She needed life saving surgery the owner could not afford and rather than euthanizing her, they surrendered her to the vet. Who contacted us. Sadly her babies did not survive but thankfully, Violet did!

Violet is a 2 year old, less than 10 pound Chihuahua. She is a pistol! She is super sweet and affectionate with her people but also has a lot of sass! But she is quite comical too. She is currently being fostered with other dogs HOWEVER, she sometimes can be bossy and has trouble sharing her humans with the other dogs so she could certainly be an only dog or, she could be matched with another dog.....it depends on the other dog. Violet can be super playful but also very cuddly! She loves to cuddle and she is always looking for a lap! She is crate trained and mostly house trained but she has had a few accidents in the house over the past month. So continued house training may be needed. She is still very puppy like and when left alone, can get into trouble chewing on things so crating is advised. Like so many chihuahua's, Violet is great with her own adult family but she can be nippy when first meeting new people. It doesn't take her long to warm up but, she would do best in an adult-only home. She may never be a social butterfly with new people but she is VERY loving with her own people! Violet is a typical Chi!

Violet has been spayed, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg), dewormed and microchipped. Adoption fee: $250.

Our Adoption Process...

http://www.voiceless-mi.org/process/

Our goal is to place all of our dogs in the –right– home for each individual dog. Every dog has its own unique needs and personality. Some dogs are high energy and require an active family. Others are “couch potatoes” and would do best in a laid back home without children, etc. We want our adoptive homes to be the final home so we strive to match our dogs with the right family.

Our adoption process includes a phone interview, references from your veterinarian, personal references and a visit to your home. Because we tend to work with large and giant breeds, we generally require home ownership and a fenced yard. However, based on the dog, we will make exceptions to the home ownership and/or fenced yard requirement.

The veterinary reference will require that your past or currents pets have a history of receiving routine annual veterinary care including general health exams, heartworm testing, the purchase of heartworm preventative, vaccines, and any other medical needs suggested in your veterinarian notes. If your veterinary cannot provide records that reflect the annual care mentioned above, your application will likely not be approved.

The first step in our adoption process is to submit the adoption application using the link on the dogs’ petfinder advertisement or, at the top of the adoptable pet listing. Once the application is received, a volunteer will conduct reference checks. Next, the volunteer will call you to conduct a phone interview. If both parties feel the dog and family are a good match, then we arrange the home visit. We have rescue contacts all over the Midwest so we are happy to consider out-of-state families!! During the home visit, we simply spend 15-20 minutes learning more about your family, your lifestyle, etc. to further make sure the dog would be a good match. And finally, we invite you to meet the dog so you can determine whether or not this is the right dog for you. And then we finalize the adoption!

If you feel you meet the above criteria for adoption, we hope you’ll consider one of our wonderful dogs!
