Vera is a 6 year old female Borzoi who began her life sleeping outdoors with other dogs. Like all of SHUG's dogs Vera is an inside dog now, but she is still getting used to living with humans.
Vera is not a cuddler. She isn't going to give you kisses or snuggle up next to you on the couch. If you are very, very patient you will be honored to be allowed the privilege of petting her for about 5 mins in the morning. Vera is very shy and takes a very long time to warm up to people. Having warmed up to someone, she may wake up one day and decide that they are satan. It isn't personal, we swear. Yes, Vera has tried anti-anxiety meds and thyroid supplements, etc. Nothing seems to really help. We're used to "slutty" sighthounds, but that just isn't who Vera is. Vera likes other dogs, but people are suspicious. And let's face it, she has a point.
Vera won’t be shipped, or sent on a transport. She’s fostered in Virginia and potential adopters may need to come to Virginia to meet her before adoption. Vera has been adopted and returned. We would like her next home to be her forever home.
Vera's adoption fee is $300.
NOTE: If Vera is still listed as available, then she is still available. We are a 100% volunteer organization and most of us have regular "day jobs". Please do not email or call to ask if she's still available, that's super annoying!
