Please note: The dogs in ODH's Final Refuge care are not adoptable due to medical reasons and all are in permanent homes. Your sponsorship supports the veterinary expenses for these dogs - and we thank you!
Introducing Violet! Very tiny Violet was left at a shelter very frightened of any and all handling making it extremely difficult to give her veterinary care for her seizures. She was also terribly underweight.
Fortunately, her soon-to-be Old Dog Haven mom has many years of experience working with challenging animals and Violet joined a happy, well adjusted group of little dogs who helped with her adjustment. Thanks to your support of Old Dog Haven, Violet’s medical issues were then addressed and she was able to see an ophthalmologist, have an abdominal ultrasound, and then a badly needed dental.
Now that Violet has settled into her new home, she has grown much more hair and she’s very soft and fluffy. And a little more than a year later, her seizures are under control and she’s gained 1/2 pound. She is now a whopping 3 1/2 pounds! Her nicknames include “PVC” (which stands for “precious Violet Chihuahua”) and “Teletubby” since she’s gained some weight!
Your support of ODH and dedicated ODH Final Refuge families like Violet’s make all the difference in our senior dogs’ lives–truly a win-win situation for all!
