Violet von Visel is a beautiful 18 month old Shepherd mix who seems to be sending signals with her ears. "Hi Everyone -- My name is Violet and, since I’ve arrived at the rescue, I’ve come quite far! The volunteers here have been so nice and patient with me and they tell me that I have ‘come a long way since my arrival.’ I now really enjoy my walks and meet other dogs nicely, although they tell me I can get a little nosy. When I get a chance to go play with other dogs, I am not the least bit afraid and say hello to everyone. I get quite excited when I meet someone new and the more serious dogs sometimes get annoyed by me, so I like to be around those friendly, easy-going types who don’t mind when I start making the rules. After being around more and more new people, I now know I do best with those who know how to handle a shy Violet like me. I need someone who is confident so that I can trust them to take care of me, and who is patient and positive so that I can learn all they want to teach me. I’m still very afraid of those little people who run around and scream, and those boards with the noisy wheels that fly by on the sidewalk --so please, none of those. I have come a long way already and know I can go even further in a home with someone who is ready to be my leader. Please fill out an application for me – Violet - so that we can live together happily ever after."
