Available Dogs -Vance



I don't remember what happened... I don't know what happened to my beautiful tail... but a wonderful group of doggie people took me in and helped me. At first, my wound wouldn't heal, even though my foster family (who, by the way, had older kids, that I loved!!!) tried everything to help me.
Eventually I needed surgery so that my tail wound would finally heal. My foster mama has worked really hard since surgery monitoring my healing. I am feeling much better now!

I love to run and play... especially with the other doggie here. He is smaller, but older. He likes to play, but gets tired of my shenanigans. I love to run and romp, and play fetch...and eat... boy do I love to eat! Now, it is time for me to try and find my fur-ever home and humans. Are you looking for a sweet dog, with soulful eyes? Are you active outside? I love to be outside! (There are squirrels out there!) Do you mind if I sometimes think I am a tiny lap dog?
