Velvet's Story

Meet Velvet!  Velvet is an adorable and super friendly five-month-old Black Mouth Cur mix who came to PAWS from one of our rescue partners.  She was brought to our medical center with a fracture in her right hind leg.  It’s been a long road to recovery for Velvet, but now that she has completely healed from her injury, she is ready to find a place to call home!  Since she's been here with us, Velvet’s true personality has come out!  We’ve learned that she is an excitable girl who loves to run and play with her other puppy friends.  She also highly enjoys chewing on bones and playing tug of war with any rope toy she can find!  As you can see in her picture, Velvet has the cutest smile that is hard to resist!  She is one happy pup who would love to share that happiness with a human companion. 

If Velvet could speak she would tell you her favorite past times include people watching through the window, enjoying a nice long walk where she can smell all the nice neighborhood smells, and eating as much Pupperoni as she can possibly handle!  Velvet would love to find an active family who will help her dreams of finding a forever home come true and someone who will take her to obedience training so she can learn lots of new fun tricks.  She will surely make a great canine companion for one very lucky family.
