Update, march 2014! Velvet has made some incredible progress!! Velvet has been successfully treated for heartworms and is now also spayed and fully vetted. She is a healthy 30lbs and a hefty, muscled girl who LOVES to play fetch with the other dogs. She plays with other dogs and loves her foster dad. Velvet remains scared with new situations, but we've began socializing her outside of her foster home. She would love to live in a fairly quiet home with another dog or two for companionship and loving patient people to care for her.
