PLEASE NOTE! Unless stated otherwise, our dogs and puppies are located in Arkansas, and transported to the north/northeast once adopted. We do occasionally have dogs/puppies placed in foster homes in the north/northeast. In the cases where the pet is somewhere other than Arkansas, it will be noted beside the name of the pet.

About Velma

  • Housetrained: Yes
4/1/24 Velma is a beautiful, smart, friendly Lab mix who is currently at the Paws in Prison program. In this program, the dogs are paired w/ inmates and meet with a dog trainer weekly. The dogs are in the program for 8 weeks. In those 8 weeks the inmates work with the dogs every single day on the basics and sometimes some extra tricks! When the dogs graduate, they have their Canine Good Citizen Certificate. Velma will be ready for adoption in May and we hope to have an adopter ready and waiting for her!
She was found running down a busy highway, along with Daphne, who we assume is her sister. Velma is very friendly and she was incredibly happy to be rescued because she was terrified on the street. Velma is friendly and sweet natured. She is a young adult and still very playful, but she also loves to cuddle. She adores kids as well as other dogs. She would prefer a feline free home. She hasn't hurt the cats in her foster home but she is too interested in them for us to feel comfortable placing her in a forever home with one. We want our feline friends to be safe, too, and we don't want to set our rescue pups up for a situation that could be problematic. Velma and Daphne are Lab mix, probably mixed with pit bull, but we don't know that for sure, we are guessing. Velma is about 50-60 lbs and won't grow more, other than possibly filling out a bit more. She is about a year old. She is crate trained and house trained, fully vetted, and ready to find a family to cuddle with!
