Venus is a very pretty 4-year-old 45 lb. pocket pittie-mix who is the sweetest dog ever! This true survivor was on death row at a NYC kill shelter, but was saved in the nick of time, thanks to her foster mom.
Venus has a slender figure, and is mostly black, with a white chest, has pointy ears that stand up and long legs — she seems to walk on her tip toes! Venus has lived with other dogs and a cat who adore her.
She is gentle with children of all ages, and enjoys socializing, but tends to be a bit shy at first. However, she warms up quickly when people pet her in a calm and friendly manner. Venus is very silly and very sweet, likes to cuddle and give and receive affection. With a mid-level energy, she enjoys playing fetch, going for walks, hiking and would make a great jogging partner! Venus is also smart and knows several obedience commands. Her favorite tricks are catching treats and toys in mid-air! She is okay on her own for a few hours, but really prefers to be with her human(s). Venus needs a calm home, with a patient owner, who can spend a good deal of time with her. Venus is spayed, up to date on shots and chipped.
