Velvet is an adorable and cuddly little female Golden Retriever mix puppy who was picked up by Little Rock Animal Services and taken to the shelter where she was locked up in a cold dark concrete kennel. The shelter can be an intimidating place; fearful barking, puppies crying, and the ever present smell of fear is not exactly going to bring out the best in these sad canine companions.
The clock was ticking, but fortunately for Velvet, a visiting DogsOnly volunteer with a keen eye, spotted cuddly little Velvet under her bedraggled wet coat. At first shivering and fearful, Velvet soon relaxed and snuggled into the warm arms of her new found friend. After only a few days out of the noise and confusion of the shelter, Velvet has made friends with the other dogs in her foster home where she is able to run and play in safety.
Velvet is approximately 16 weeks old and weighs about 15 pounds. However, please remember that as beautiful and cuddly as Velvet is at the moment, she will grow into an adult dog in no time at all. You should also be prepared for the usual trial of rearing a young puppy including the chewing, crying, potty training, and constant demands. For this reason we would prefer that Velvet’s new guardians have experience with young puppies and understand their special needs. Remember, just like kids, they grow up real fast.
