Arrival Story: I GOT ADOPTED!! WISH ME LUCK IN MY NEW FOREVER HOME!!
Bio: Velvet is a sweet 3-1/2 month old lab mix that has had a very rough start in life. She was found in a box in Southern Illinois with her head slashed and stabbed at the age of 2 weeks old. Since she was so young, her eyes and ear canals weren't open and she doesn't have any fear of people. She is currently living with 2 dogs, a ferret and a 4 year old child and gets along with them all very well. Velvet has learned most of her basic doggy commands in an incredible short amount of time - ie, sit, down, stay, okay, no, paw and is currently working on how to walk correctly on a leash. Velvet also has gotten over being protective of her food, although she does still eat a bit too fast. She is almost 100% housebroken too! Velvet learns very fast and she has so much potential if provided with enough attention and a lot of praise for doing good. Velvet is a playful loving puppy in need of a good, loving forever home. She will show you how great a companion she can be. . . .given the chance.
