Introducing Violet! AKA PVC which stands for precious violet Chihuahua, AKA Teletubby since she has gained some weight.
Violet was a stray turned in to our favorite shelter. The only thing we knew about her was that she was very tiny!
Little Violet was very frightened of handling, extremely difficult to do anything with at the vet – even vaccines. Her foster mom has many years experience working with challenging animals and Violet joined a happy, well adjusted group of little dogs who helped with her adjustment. Meanwhile, Old Dog Haven worked on her medical issues; she has had several ophthalmologist appointments, an abdominal ultrasound, and a dental as well as the labwork that gradually became possible.
As Violet has settled into her new home, she has much more hair and is very fluffy and soft. After 15 months, the seizures she was having are under control. Also, this little pup has gained more than 1/2 pound. She is now a
whopping 3 1/2 pounds.
Violet’s foster mom has made an amazing difference in this tiny girl’s life – this has truly been a win-win for all!
