Therapy Dog Violet

Hi there!
My name is Violet and boy have I come a long way from when I was rescued in Kanawah County WV.  I was so scared of everything but I kept hoping that I would find a forever home.  In July 2007 my wish came true and I joined my new family which includes my new mom, Taffy (my little buddy) and a senior kitty, Snuggles. 

My mom works really hard teaching me lots of new things.  She keeps telling me that I have potential – whatever that means.  I’ve been with my family a year and I am proud to announce that I am now a certified therapy dog just like my buddy, Taffy.  We visit Alzheimer and dementia patients at a local facility and they love to pet and talk to us.  My mom saw my potential to be a great therapy dog and now I’ve made her really proud. I’m so happy and love to play with Taffy.

Here is a picture of us in front of the Christmas tree for my first Christmas – boy do I have a lot to celebrate!  Thank you Sandy for rescuing me from WV and giving me the opportunity to find a home that truly loves me!
