We first introduced you to Velma over a month ago,after she was found on the streets of Ballinasloe as a very scared,mangy,flea infested,worm laden baby….of approx 5 weeks old.

A mere baby who should ,in an ideal world have been tucked up,warm and cosy,safe and secure with her mum and siblings…However,for some ,like Velma,the world is not such a nice place and in the hands of people with no compassion for animals,they suffer from the moment they are born.

Velma can count herself lucky,that she was found by someone with compassion,who picked her up,bought her home and contacted us.One of our regular volunteers Diane,offered to collect Velma and even better,offered to hold onto her as a foster…

That was just over 5 weeks ago and today Velma returned to Heathlawn for her profile photo shoot.
The problem was,Velma was just so photogenic and cute,we couldn’t decide which photo to use……So we have posted them all..!!!!😜

Velma is now nearly ready to leave her foster home,so we are now starting the search for her forever home.

Velma is a tiny but leggy little girl,now approx 1q weeks old.An outgoing,confident,cheeky little imp,who loves to play,run around but also needs her humans lap to curl up on,when she needs a snooze.
Similar to a human baby,pups of Velma’s age need lots of human company,so a home where someone is around nearly all the time.
A home willing to put up with all the naughtiness and cheekiness,that a pup will bring into your home…but willing to receive all the love and snuggles,they also bring.

Velma currently lives with other dogs,who she loves playing with ….and annoying them too at times,with her puppy energy.Though Velma can also be an only dog,with enough human company available.

Velma has started lead training and is doing very well,she is crate trained and getting used to going out in the car. Her toilet training is going well too and Velma is very nearly house trained already.

A very clever little girl,who will bring great joy to a home,willing to put in the work needed with every pup.
Her foster family have done amazing work with her in such a short time,which we need a forever family to continue.

Please contact Emma on 087 2765690 if you can offer Velma the 5* home she deserves.

A secure garden and indoor home ONLY
