I couldn’t have a better name because I’m as sweet as a love Muffin. My foster parents say they hardly know I’m even around. I’m very quiet, very smart too. I’m housebroken, I will go to the door when I need to go do my business. I walk great on a leash and I like to ride in the car.  It takes me a while to feel comfortable and come out of my shell but when I do, I am precious. You will love my under bite, I promise. It will make you smile every time you look at my sweet face. I’m approximately 8-9 years young, UTD on all my shots, spayed, micro chipped and on heart worm prevention. I really just want my forever family to love and to love me. I’m good with laying around and watching tv or going on a walk. I get along with other dogs but wouldn’t mind being the only dog in your life. I weigh about 19 lbs, I’ve had a dental too. So all I really need is my own family. If you want to add me to your family go to viprescue.org and fill out an application.

a volunteer , wiping the tears
From her eyes, as she walks from the grave

All the lonely puppies , where do they all come from ?

All the lonely doggies , where do they all come from ?

The harsh reality of being a puppy mill breeder is fading more and more. She has been in foster care for a couple of weeks now and her coat is beginning to come in beautifully. She is still shy and timid, but wants to love, just not sure how to yet.  She is very quite and is getting used to being cuddled.  Gets along great with other dogs and is working real hard on her housebreaking skills. She gives kisses now and wags that precious tail.

Aaron/Largo

Meet Aaron again. The fix is in!
I’ve been in my foster home for a few days now and I’m not so spicy anymore. I’m housebroken, I know a few basic commands now and I get in the car no problem, still working on getting out, but I did it a few times already. Once I warm up to you, I really am a sweet boy and very smart according to my foster Mom. I love playing with squeaky toys and love going for walks. I’m learning that human touch with love and patience is a good thing and I think I really like it. I’m around 19lbs, 4 years old Lasha/poodle mix of beautiful, blonde reddish coat. Current on shots, micro chipped, neutered, on heart worm prevention and had a dental. In rescue we frequently wonder what negative human behavior contributed to make this dog act in certain ways. But we also know with love, kindness and patience most of these issues fade or go away completely.
Aaron is good with other dogs, and good on a leash. He does not like crates, but he doesn’t really need one. He is very receptive to learning but will need a strong, disciplined pack leader, who will continue with his obedience training classes.  He will require an experienced pet parent. He will need an experienced groomer also. Once he trusts you, he will be by your side always.  To welcome Aaron into your heart and home, please submit your application. Visit www.viprescue.org
