Meet Viola, the charming foster pup who's ready to steal your heart! This sweet girl has a playful spirit and a gentle soul, making her an ideal companion for a loving home. Viola has had positive interactions with other dogs, including a senior Yorkie and a playful Yorkie puppy. She's a regular at doggie daycare, where she always gets glowing reports for her friendly demeanor and playful antics with other pups.

When it comes to being left alone, Viola is a star. She's great in a crate and never destructive, although she prefers the crate during storms to stay calm. House-trained to perfection, Viola can hold her bowels for over 12 hours, especially if it's raining outside. She's a champion in the crate and knows basic commands like sit, stay, lay down, and shake. While she forgets her manners when excited, she quickly remembers with a little guidance.

Viola is a cuddle bug who loves to be close to her humans on the couch or bed. She may take a bit to warm up to new people, preferring women over men, but once she does, she's incredibly affectionate. She's goofy and loving, known for her "jackal face" when she rolls on her back and her love for hiding under blankets during storms. Golf cart rides, treats (which she adorably calls "cookies"), and snuggles are some of her favorite things.

Viola's perfect day includes a nice walk followed by lounging by the pool or cuddling on the couch. She needs a home without small children, with patient and loving parents who can give her the time she needs to feel safe and secure. If you're looking for a gentle, loving, and sometimes goofy companion, Viola is the perfect fit. This shy girl will melt your heart once she opens up to you, and you'll be forever smitten.
