Meet Veronica (Photos 8/11/2023)

Veronica is a beautiful 3-1/2 year old female American Pit Bull Terrier mix who was brought to the HSOV on August 2, 2023 by a Good Samaritan who found her on Brandy Drive in Marietta Ohio. Veronica was accompanied by her best friend Betty who is most likely her sister. Neither Veronica nor Betty were wearing a collar, and they were not microchipped.

Veronica has a black short smooth coat with a small patch of white on her chest and belly, a long tail, and a sweet face with dark brown eyes, a black button nose on her slender muzzle, and large floppy ears.

Veronica & Betty have been kept together since entering our shelter since they depend upon each other for companionship and a sense of security. Betty was 'in a family way' when she entered our shelter and is very pregnant. We anticipate that she will be giving birth to several babies in the near future. Veronica is the self-appointed mid-wife since she is always as close to Betty as possible.

Veronica weighs 50 lbs. She doesn't appear to have been accustomed to walking on a leash but made a noble effort with her best friend Betty by her side. Veronica has a gentle, rather shy, personality.

Thanks to HSOV Volunteer Tracy Moore for taking Veronica & Betty outdoors (together of course) so that they could have updated glamour photos taken on August 11th. We had taken preliminary photos in their kennel a few days after they arrived, and they were snuggled up close to each other on their large blanket-covered kuranda bed.

In compliance with the Ohio Revised Code, Veronica was held for three days so that her family would have an opportunity to reclaim her with proof of ownership .. But nobody called or came looking for Veronica or Betty.

Veronica will be spayed before being adopted by her new family.

UPDATE: We had late-breaking news soon after we posted Betty's Petfinder 'baby bump' photos on the evening of August 13, 2023 and will include a birth announcement:

Betty gave birth to six healthy puppies. All of the babies and momma Betty are doing well ... And "Aunt Veronica" is also doing well.
