Meet Viola

Listen up, because this short biography on Viola will be like music to your ears.

Found as a stray, this gorgeous adult is adjusting remarkably well to home life. She has mastered the basic commands, is not a chewer, and is friendly with visitors. Viola has been doing well overall with house-training, though she has had the occasional accident when left alone outside the crate. She has shown no issues with her crate and is fine left alone there.

True to the hound breed, Viola loves spending time outside investigating all the good scents. She is also bound to impress if you give her a treat puzzle to solve; wicked smart and highly treat-motivated, that nose of hers will sniff out the good stuff in no time!

A people dog at heart, Viola hasn’t shown much interest in playing with other dogs and generally likes to keep her distance during walks, especially given the slight limp in her rear right leg. But with humans, she’s a true social butterfly. She will happily snuggle up to you and dole out kisses, possessing a simple joy that is contagious. And with those floppy ears and wiggly butt, you’ll find it is hard to say no to a cuddle session with this sweetheart, especially as she falls asleep in your arms.

As her foster mom notes, Viola is a 'quiet, calm, cool, collected dog with the sweetest disposition.' We think she would prefer a quieter home without children where she can snooze undisturbed and curl up at your feet.
