Valentina is 7 years young, spunky and quite the looker. She was surrendered by her former family due to V disliking their son. Her aggression towards the son progressed over 3 years and in that time, he was bitten 3-4 times.

Miss Valentina suffers from allergies, environmental and food related. She requires medication for her allergies and must have her folds, paws, inverted tail area and her lady parts cleaned each day. Her ears need to be cleaned once a week and she needs to have medicated baths to help with her skin allergies. She also has severe adverse reactions to rabies and most other vaccines and has needed for a vet to sign a rabies vaccination waiver each year. V has a mass in her rib cage that does not affect her but will need to be monitored throughout her life.

V is a lover. She loves to cuddle, follow her people around, and go for car rides! She is very laid back and will sleep the day away….she even needs to be woken up for breakfast. She gets along great with the other fur residents in the house and loves her human sister. She is completely obsessed with her foster dad; she’s his shadow!!

She isn’t a dominant dog but will definitely let one know when she has had enough. Her foster mom feeds are separately from her fur siblings because her foster brother has zero concept of personal space. Ms. V is not keen on him trying to get her food. Despite her not wanting to share her food, any toy aggression she had went away after 2 weeks in foster care. She now will share her toys with her siblings and is very gentle when taking treats from her people. Every human she’s come in contact with falls head over heels for her. They say she’s so friendly….and soft, soft like silk.

Valentina loves any toy. She also enjoys lying on the patio…..she will lie on her back and wiggle back and forth. It is absolutely adorable!!! V listens very well and is the most well-behaved dog her foster mom has ever met. She knows how to sit, stay, and come on command. She is also housebroken and crate-trained; although, she prefers not to be crated. She is leash trained as well.

While V would prefer a fenced yard, it is not required. An ideal home would be where her forever mom or dad is home all day with her. However, someone who works but can provide a mid-day potty break would also be satisfactory. Miss Valentina would also prefer to have a doggie sibling in her forever home so that she can continue to have a playmate. She WILL need forever fur-parents that will allow her to sleep in bed with them as she is a major cuddler!!!

Valentina enjoys love and attention!!! She absolutely adores being spoiled and makes her foster family laugh and smile every day. She deserves a wonderful forever family who will provide her with unconditional love. Please apply if you have the love to give this little girl!
