Sweet Violet is ready for a forever home of her own!
Violet is a ten year old, 14 lb mini poodle velcro dog. She is very mellow, sweet, loves to cuddle and be loved on all the time, potty trained if on a regular schedule. She is overweight at 14 lbs and needs to lose a few more to be at her ideal weight.
Violet came from a local shelter where her owner left her. She was mostly bald from untreated allergies, and had horrible ear infections, skin infections, rotten teeth and was in a lot of pain from untreated arthritis and luxating patellas. She has been treated for all of her medical issues. Dental, spay, hernia repair and deep ear cleaning. She is on a daily medication (rimadyl)to help with the arthritis, and also takes cosequin supplement for her joints. Violet has quite severe food allergies and is on a limited ingredient diet and a daily allergy medication (apoquel). Her hair is coming back in slowly! Losing the last few pounds will definitely help a lot with her arthritis and luxating patellas.
We don’t know her history but she has separation anxiety that is worse when she’s in a crate, therefore she cannot be crated but does okay in a gated area with toys or treats to chew on. Ideally she wants to be with her people and she needs a home where someone is home much of the time.
She is adorable does great with other mellow dogs and cats! She would do best in a home with at least one mellow dog she can be with when her people are gone, which helps with her anxiety.
Violet LOVES to cuddle and snuggle and likes to be hugged like a big teddy bear. She is the ideal companion for someone who wants a cuddle buddy to binge watch Netflix with!
