OAKLAND, CA: 8 year old Violet is described "common and unwanted." How sad! 😢 All dogs are special. And cute. But unfortunately, this is Violet's reality. Too many people aren't looking at Violet for her loving and zen personality. Violet is the pup who will instantly help you to relax at the end of the day. And a snuggle with Violet will take all of your worries away! She is absolutely adorable and overlooked for all the wrong reasons. PLEASE SHARE! 💜💝 A shelter volunteer wrote, "Did you know that wild violets are considered weeds? Common and unwanted. Well, both concepts describe our little Violet, sadly. She is 8 years young and weighs 11 pounds. Miss Violet is a volunteer favorite due to her loving Zen personality. Violet is a daily reminder to stop, relax, enjoy the sunshine, and smell the roses (and violets)! She is a #calm and #soothing balm to this frantic and fragmented world we now live in. Violet will be a #devoted companion who demands very little. She is not in need of long walks, lots of physical activity, or puppy training.
Violet was found as a stray and has been living at the shelter for several weeks in a kennel that she shares with several other female dogs. We have never heard her bark once! She has a chronic eye condition (called 'Dry Eye-Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca'). She will need help from her new family and vet to manage this condition so that she can feel her best. She's a very good girl when getting her eye medications. I've seen her sit quite patiently and hold still with staff while they put the medicine on her eye. I think it makes her eye feel better.
Can you open your home and heart to a senior dog and fill her retirement years with love and comfort? If so, please come by Oakland Animal Services today to meet our little wonder Miss Violet. There is nothing like the smile of an older dog!" Violet is located at the @OaklandAnimalServices shelter. She must bed adopted in-person.
