Venus is searching for an ESA; Emotional Support Animal. You see, Venus is an incredibly scared young lady. People, ceiling fans, cars, spastic birds... the list goes on.. all of these things scare her! She is looking for a confident and well-adjusted doggy friend that will show her how to be a brave girl herself. Since Venus is so fearful, we want her to live in a calm and low-traffic household where she is not constantly bombarded by scary things. Unfortunately, this means no young children. Mature teenagers may be okay. As stated, her new home needs a well socialized dog companion that will show her how to be a happy dog.

Venus came to us with her sister, Cassiopeia APA-A-95869. These two were found roaming around the streets of Austin and had to be captured by the local animal control officer. Venus relies heavily on her sister and follows every move she makes. This is why we believe she needs another dog in the home. She basically shuts-down and does not know what to do with herself when without her sissy.

Do you have what Venus is searching for? If so, please inquire about her!
