Velma is looking for a home with lots of pets and cuddles. She is a lover of all…big and small.
Velma came to AARCS from Montana but not much is known about her history. It’s obvious that she has had a litter and she has a deformed front leg which may come from the Basset Hound side of her genetics. Her leg doesn’t seem to cause her discomfort and she loooooves to go for walks outside. Because of her leg, the walks are at a more leisurely pace and she loves to follow her hound nose to smell all the smells. She is great on leash and always eager to get out for some exercise. She is curious and sweet and wants to say hi to every friend…human and fur…along the way.
Velma is completely housetrained and likes to do her business when she’s out on her walk. She sleeps in her kennel at night and needs a few bits of kibble to get her in there. After a few moments of adorable chirping protest, she settles down for the whole night. She is free in part of the house during the day with our other dogs when we are out and there have been no issues. There would be no problem with her sleeping out of her kennel at night.
We have only heard Velma bark once. She has a little chirping whine to let you know she needs something. She gets along very well with our two large resident dogs. She has been around older children and loves attention from everyone!
Velma really loves her people and enjoys cuddling right up to you whenever possible. She loves pets and cuddles and scratches and likes to be in the same room as you. She has a very sweet temperament and would do well in most homes. I’m sure she would prefer a home where someone is home most of the time to hang out with her. She would also do well with a doggie friend to play with.
Velma is such a sweet soul with her big brown eyes. They will melt your heart. She is a polite, friendly and curious little girl looking for a loving home.
