Hi! I'm Venus.When I was 4 months old I was able to escape my mean owner who had me chained outside without any shelter. I immediately ran to the neighbor's house and hid under their car because it was nice and cool! The neighbors spotted me and called animal control to come get me, because they were cat people. I ran happily into the arms of the officer because she had food and I was really hungry. The next day she gave me to this nice guy who said he was my foster daddy. But after a short period of time there he got sick and stopped taking care of me, so I got the heartworms, really skinny, and spent most of my time outside fending for myself.
Then this really nice woman saw me and took me away, and put me into a place called boarding. Boarding was fun at first, I felt like I was at camp! But at this camp the yard to run around in was only about 15 square feet, so I couldn't play much and most of my time was spent in my cage, by myself. I was there for three months, over Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I was getting really depressed, and thought nobody would ever love me, until my new foster mommy came and got me on Valentine's day. Now I am in a home with lots of other doggies, a huge yard to run in, and I get to eat twice a day!! Things are really starting to look up for me now, and the only thing that could make me the happiest girl ever is a home of my own.
This gorgeous girl is spayed and up to date on all her shots. She recently went through heartworm treatment and now has a clean bill of health. She knows someone is out there looking for her and she is anxiously awaiting her knew home.
