  • Vela


Picture 1 of 6

Vela is a sweet, friendly girl rescued from Chicago Animal Care & Control. She originally ended up at the shelter as a stray, and was forced to wait while her owner contested spaying her. After 2 long months, her owner decided he didn’t want to pay her redemption fees and signed her over. Vela is about a year old and still very puppy like. She is an energetic, bouncy girl working on her manners. Vela is crate trained. She would benefit from a home that is willing to take her to positive training classes. Vela previously lived with another large breed dog and is friendly with new dogs she’s met. With her puppy energy, she’d probably enjoy a playmate! She has not been around cats. We recommend a home with older children for Vela.
