Meet Venus

Meet Venus 2017-11-29T12:57:37+00:00

Venus joined the League’s Sponsor Program in 2007. Venus is one very feisty and terribly adorable Chihuahua.

We suspect that she was one of an inbred litter from backyard breeders. Only 10 weeks old when the League rescued her, Venus was born with no front legs. Because of this unfortunate deformity, she needs continuous physical therapy to be able to walk on her back legs. She also requires a wheel apparatus to assist her in getting around when she is not relying on her hind legs.

Venus was named after the ancient Greek sculpture, Venus De Milo. Venus, our lovely, little work of art, has no realization that she is disadvantaged. The smallest of her litter, with brother Pablo and sister Carmen, Venus gets around surprisingly well and seems very happy. She also has had to adjust to standing on her back legs the quickest out of all her siblings. Though Venus does not require regular medication, life for her will not be easy. However, regardless of her handicap, she is a jolly, healthy dog and we are thrilled to be able to give her all the love and care she deserves.

It’s hard keeping up with these three siblings who have become virtual speed racers in their mobile carts! Carmen and Venus love their brother, Pablo, but make sure he knows that they are the ladies in charge when it comes to being the leader of their pack. Pablo doesn’t seem to mind and
easily relents to his sisters. What a blessing that the Pet Sponsor program provides these precious pets with a fresh lease on life.

This adorable trio is always the talk of the town when they are out and about. Pablo is always making sure his canine sisters, Carmen and Venus, are well taken care of, but he doesn’t forget to soak up the attention as well! Is there anything cuter than three tiny Chihuahuas rolling around in personalized carts? We think not! Thank you to all of the loyal supporters who give these three deserving pooches the fulfilling lives they truly deserve.

This adorable little trio continues to shine in their caring, loving home! They are undoubtedly the center of their mom Donna’s world and continue to receive the very best of medical care and nurturing compassion care thanks to their many sponsor parents. Despite their disabilities, these three dogs continue live life to the fullest, always making sure to show how appreciative they truly are. We wish Pablo, Venus, Carmen and their family the very best!

These three sure are a close-knit bunch! Pablo is so protective of his sisters Carmen and Venus. Unless it’s someone he knows, he will stay between the girls and any newcomers. The ladies appreciate all he does for them and show it by sharing their treats with him. Their mom is so moved to see how much they love each other.

The trio continue to keep their family on their toes with their antics and high energy. They are still the stars of the neighborhood with many canine and human visitors alike. Health wise, they are all doing fine at the present time, but their medical needs will always be taken care of thanks to the Pet Sponsor Program.

All continues to be well for these three fabulous little dogs. Their mom keeps a close eye on them and they, in turn, keep their family entertained with their playful antics. They love being around children especially and it’s hard to tell who is having the most fun — the kids or the Mutt-i-grees® (all rescued or adopted pets)! But, thanks to the Sponsor Program, they will always have medical care whenever they need it. Thank you to all their sponsors from the Three Amigos!

The trio are doing well—running around like any dog, since they have no idea they are different. Their carts do make it easier for them to get around, but even when they are out of them, they hop and play with each other like little kangaroos. There is never a dull moment, and their mom is thankful they are all in good health and have such a good quality of life. All their sponsors make this possible—for which the amigos and their family thank them.

March 2016

Our three little amigos continue to be well and keep their family amused. They enjoyed the holidays, but their mom was careful not to let things get too crazy. The three dogs all enjoy company and being the center of attention. They got new beds and several new toys. The best gift of all was knowing they will always be taken care of thanks to their loyal and caring sponsors.

December 2015

The trio are the life of the neighborhood with lots of human and canine visitors stopping by to say hello whenever they are in their yard. And, when inside, you can find them looking out the front window keeping an eye on all the outside happenings. What a fun-loving bunch! Their family could not imagine life without them. Thank you to all their sponsors who make it possible for the trio to get the care they need.
