Oh kids, you know I love me some BIG DOGS. And this girl qualifies! Weighing in at 120 lbs, she is the definition of a gentle giant.
Venus is six years old, and she’s not a big, strong, wild and crazy beast. She’s a quiet girl who will walk by your side and will bond with her owner. She wants to sleep in your bed (I hope you have a King!), snuggle with you relentlessly and maybe go for a car ride. She doesn’t do great with other dogs as she is very possessive of her food and her toys, so it would be great if she could be the only dog in the house. That said, she’s ok with older kids.
She’s well trained with sit, stay, speak and is learning fetch! She’s also crate trained, and her crate is included with the adoption. If you’re interested in bringing her home, you can get more information over here.
About this project
For the next month, I’ll feature photos on my blog, my instagram and my facebook feeds that focus on dogs who need homes. These are dogs currently in foster homes, waiting for their forever family. They are amazing pups who will melt your hearts — some are hard to adopt because they are pit bull mixes (the sweetest dogs ever who cannot help their strength) or they have lived on the streets for a long time and are covered in scars or they might be blind or deaf (or both). Some are simply hard to get adopted because they are black, which is the dumbest reason ever. But each dog that has come into my studio in the last few weeks for photos has had a warm heart and wanted nothing more than love. Wouldn’t it be great if one of you could provide that? I hope so. To see all the dogs featured so far, look here. Also, special shout out to Lucy & Co. for donating all of the amazing bandanas!
