SEX: Female

BREED: Mountain Cur Mix

WEIGHT: 49 lbs.

MARL ARRIVAL: Venus was transferred to MARL from another facility.

BACKGROUND: If you’re looking for a fun-loving, happy dog, you’ve come to the right place! Sweet Venus is one of those pups who’s always looking to have a little fun and is a big fan of having her favorite people right alongside of her! Nothing makes Venus happier than being around humans of any variety and her goofy, go-lucky nature puts a smile on the face of everyone she’s around. When she isn’t busy smiling and having a good time, she absolutely loves getting lots of scratches and affection from anyone who is willing. Do you have room in your heart and your home for a dog like Venus?

COMPATIBILITY: Based on our evaluation, we feel that Venus has the potential to get along with other dogs. Venus would do best in a home without cats.

MEDICAL NEEDS: Venus has tested positive for Heartworm Disease, and is available for foster/foster to adopt while she goes through her treatment. During this time, Venus will need to be kept on exercise restriction. She will also need to be brought to one of MARL's approved veterinarians for check ups and treatment (approximately 1-2 visits per month). If you have specific questions regarding Venus and her Heartworm treatment, please call our shelter at 248-335-9290.
