Minnie ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

minnie Minnie was a sorry sight when she was taken from the animal shelter- bare, peeling skin stretched over bones, no hair, badly infected teeth, barely enough energy to lift her head- yet there was a quality in her big round eyes that made you feel she was special. More than one person burst into tears at the sight of her badly malnourished condition.

But that was then! Minnie now has gained lots of weight, has been spayed, and has had her mouth infection treated. She even has two teeth left! She's had her shots and comes with a microchip!

Minnie has a hearty appetite, but her food must be softened for her. She is very quiet and she is paper-trained. It has been a pleasure to see her gain the energy to jump and bark her strange little bark. We believe she is about ten years old, possibly younger. She needs very little exercise and could easily be an indoor dog. She's learned to trust people again and she's ready for a forever home.

Because she is so tiny, Minnie needs to be an only pet. She would not be suitable for a home with children. Minnie's new owner must be kind and nurturing. As a friend said of her, "She is determined to survive and be loved."

Minnie is in Southern California and probably we would not want to ship her anywhere. Maybe you would like to offer a home to this very special little dog. We would like serious applicants only, please!!

We are looking for a wonderful, forever home for Minnie. Since we prefer not to ship her, anyone interested in adopting her will need to come and meet her. Minnie is in southern California at this time. Her new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for her, and there will be an adoption fee or donation of $100.

Minnie has been Adopted!
