Lady Violet (formerly Lil-Jo)

Lil-Jo found her forever home with us last Saturday when we drove from Guelph to Barrie to adopt her from the PetSmart adoption centre. We’re now calling her Lady Violet and she’s already responding to her new name. Her transition from the shelter to our home has been pretty much seamless. Her introduction to our 10 year old Chocolate lab was a little rocky – some hissing, a low growl and a show of claws, but they’ve agreed to a truce and boundaries are being respected by both parties (or at least the dog now knows to keep her nose beyond striking distance). Violet met our Vet yesterday and charmed the veterinary staff with her lovely personality and even received a belly rub. Besides the weight issue (she’s currently 15 lbs), she received a clean bill of health and we’re aiming for her weight to be 12 pounds. With her new weight-reduction food and increasing her level of activity, we hope she’ll begin to feel more comfortable physically. We’re so pleased to have Violet join our family and we’d like to thank all of you for the important work you do in your community and your dedication to finding loving homes for so many furry friends. Margaret and Larry Guelph, Ontario
