Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed. Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first year.
ADOPTED ON 02-25-18: Velvet has lived a long time in the shelter that rescued her and at some point, they would have had to make a decision. Then she was rescued by a foster, her foster’s voice is full of affection when she talks about her; she describes her as a very sweet baby girl that loves to give kisses.
Velvet can best be described as quiet, thoughtful and taking in all the good things in live, she knows that she is with good humans. She is not mellow, just soft-spoken. She becomes far more affectionate and open with she is close to humans and she will wiggle and beg for attention. When she is in public she becomes very reserved and dignified, walks in a straight line, she will prance, and everyone always compliments on how “well trained” she is.
Velvet enjoys playing with her toys. She is a laid back kind of girl, calm and you can’t sneak up on her or startle her because she knows you’re coming. If you try, she may just look without flinching. She is not the kind of dog that would be preoccupied with a tennis ball and forget the world around her; she will never do anything at random or without thinking. She is spayed, updated shots, micro-chip and heart-worm negative.
Like so many of the rescue dogs that are found, Velvet was found dumped on a rural road near the woods. She looked to have been surviving on their own for a week or more. Just in time, she was found by animal control and a southern rescue angel. She is now in a loving foster home in Dallas, TX; she knows that she does not have to worry about food or other dangers. Velvet began showing the signs of her Golden breed. Her foster dad has noticed that she is “just a real good dog”. Even at this young age, she will listen and come when she is called; their foster family feels that she is really special dog that is meant to be saved. She has been around little children and true to their breed, she is just tremendously loving and gentle with them. Velvet loves to run and play with her foster family; she was slightly cautious at first but warmed up after a pet and an ear scratching. She gets lots of play time gets along with her foster brothers and sisters dogs.
If you have an urge to have an instant best friend that is always glad to see you and easy to take care of, you really should give this wonderful girl a look. Velvet just needs someone who will love her and give her the attention she deserves.
