Meet Velvet

Please read the dog's entire bio before you apply. Sadly, we are no longer able to respond to every application, but will contact the one that is a good match within 5 days.
Velvet is a female chug born May 2021, she is a precious mix of chihuahua and pug and maybe something else. Velvet is 7 lbs and has the cutest expressions. She is good on the leash, loves meeting new people and is super fun. Velvet can get pretty vocal when alone so would not be appropriate for apartment living or for someone who works full time out of the house. She is energetic and loves going places and exploring, yet snuggly and loves being held and carried. Velvet is good in the car, loves most other dogs and kids as well as playing with her toys. She does playbite/rough house, so if she is to be around small children, they have to be super dog savy. She is a good little watchdog and "guards" her home and car.
In March Velvet had surgery for an MPL (knees), both of her knees were repaired. We expect that she will have a full recovery after the surgery but it is crucial that she is not allowed to become overweight in the future.

Her 6 week follow up showed good recovery but she will need to be slowly introduced so long walks and no jumping until 12 weeks post op (6/9/22).
