Since adopting Vivienne at four years old, she has transformed from a shy and sometimes flighty dog who wasn't fussed on leaving the house, to a happy and friendly dog who loves her walks. Everyone in my small town knows her as she loves to greet people and get a quick pat. 2 years after adoption, my wife sadly passed away and Vivienne has stood by me and supported me every day. She makes sure I get up and out walking each day rain, hail or shine. She has certainly been a key to overcoming my grief and loneliness. Not a day passes where she doesn't make me or someone else giggle or laugh. What a godsend! The best decision I made was adopting her. Ten years old now and no signs of her slowing down even though she's getting a grey muzzle. Long live the VIV!
