Back Story: last minute rescue from euthanasia room with her Mom

Comments: Vivian came with her Mom Ethel, she is/was very dependent on her (her Mom needed HW treatment & they had to be separated). I introduced them to her fellow foster Edward & she bonded quickly with him.
Vivian is super sweet and will follow you all over ‘once’ she trusts you. She will benefit from staying with Ethel or another outgoing friendly pooch as a sibling. She crates well every night, walking on a leash is getting better every time (only been walked 3 times).
All Vivian needs is some ‘time. A calm patient household with kids 16 and up would probably be best. She will have to get used to many things she has never heard or seen. Due to the high number of foster dogs here, I am not able to give her the attention/exposure she needs to thrive.
