At first skittish and wary, after a month of being in her new homeViolet is behaving like a normal, happy dog. It seems she is slowly forgetting all the trauma of her past. Her human wrote on Facebook:

She is protecting her yard with vigilance, eating like a beast, drooling like a monger, playing keep away, doing zoomies like a "nut job" and is wanting to please all she meets.

A recent visit to the vet also confirmed that her weight has almost doubled within a month, so she is making excellent progress.Since her traumatic experience of being thrown out of a vehicle, Violet has been very scared of walking down the pavement close to the cars. But recently she seemed to conquer her fear by jumping in the boot of her human's car!
