Violet - ADOPTED

ADOPTED: Ya know just about the time you think you know people you find out you don't!! I had a rough start to life but when I came to the rescue, I was shocked that people actually cared about me and not for puppies!! But when I found out I had urinary incontinence I figured no one would ever want to adopt me!! SURPRISE I got adopted!!! I love life!! I NOW have a mommy, daddy and 2 brothers Dewey aka Finn and Louis both adopted from Harlequin Haven PLUS my roommate Kiki aka Lily!!

Look at this happy family all of us are smiling!!

Before Pictures & My Story Below

After giving my owners puppies so they could sell them and make money, they threw me out to fend for myself in a rural area of Hamilton County. I was so scared I just kept running from people, after all who could I trust? Then Lost Pet Recovery set a trap and I was so hungry that when I went in to get the food I was trapped. I was then taken to Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society to serve my stray time, of course no one came looking for me! When my stray time was up, and no one had came for me Harlequin Haven was contacted and the next day I was here!!

I only weigh 75 pounds and I should weigh close to 100 pounds. I am being fed 4 small meals a day and getting lots of hugs and kisses! Plus I got tons of toys and other dogs to play with!!  I think life is looking up!!

I want to Thank Lost Pet Recovery for setting the trap and baiting it with really yummy food and yes trapping me. Without you all I might not be here today!!!

Update 7/21: Within a few days of arriving here I came down with a very bad case of Kennel Cough. My being so underweight and so stressed it was easy for me to pick it up at Cincinnati Animal CARE, hopefully the new meds the vet has prescribed will help me get well quick. Well, I am exhausted, so I am going back to bed, please keep me in your thoughts to get well soon.
Update 7/31: I am slowly getting over my Kennel Cough, and I am still being fed four meals a day although the amounts have gotten a bit bigger. I now weigh 86.8 pounds, but Grandma says I do not look like I have gained an ounce. Guess I got more weight to gain then I thought! I still am taking lots of naps, but I do enjoy playing with the other dogs. Well, I am going to take another nap so I can play with the others in a bit. I will see if Grandma will get some new pictures of me in a few days.
Update 7/31: Great News!! I am finally totally over my kennel cough and am planning for my upcoming surgery on August 29 when I get spayed!!! Then my next big day will be the day I am available for adoption!!! Okay 1 big event at a time!!! So, for now I am focusing just on gaining weight!! I now weigh 93 pounds and gaining!!! Pictures coming soon!!
Update 9/04: I am NOW ready for adoption!!! I weigh a whopping 94 pounds and am as cute as a button just ask me!! I love to eat, play, snuggle and go for car rides!! The one thing I do not like is getting my picture taken! Just ask Grandma LOL. New pictures are below although it was against my wishes.
Update 10/7: This is kinda embarrassing to tell strangers but I have been diagnosed with urinary incontinence and will need to take medicine for the rest of my life. The good news is when I take it I have no accidents and it is only 1 pill a day. Otherwise I am a healthy happy girl!
