Vicky’s a Phoenix from the flames!

About Vicky


Tenacious Vicky beat the odds surviving a very bad start to life! Fully recovered from her challenging ordeal… she is now a vivacious bundle of positive energy, prancing around the shelter (truly she prances – it’s adorable!) making the humans smile and the other dogs romp and play!

After suffering mutiple fractures on multiple legs, being abandoned at a veterinary clinic, a long and grueling recovery, and a prognosis of limited mobility, Spirited Vicky pushed through it all!

Only a small limp in her right hind leg gives hint to her past. Toss a ball and she is off and prancing to capture that ball, spin around and look at you wide-eyed to ask “Where’s the next one?!” Vicky enjoys wrestling with other small to medium size dogs and shares toys well too!

And she LOVES humans! She’ll snuggle in your lap and let you brush her hair all day long! It’s fabulous – thick and fluffy like she’s been to the salon!  She’s ideal for a first time dog owner because there’s no training required – she’s just that easy!

With such a traumatic start to life but rising up like Phoenix from the flames … are you the human to keep her lively spirit burning in your Forever Family?
