Meet our sweet little Minnie,

We are so excited (and honestly a bit jealous) to see who scoops up this amazing girl. Minnie really is one of a kind. This sweet soul spent most of her life on a tether and had recently had puppies when she originally came into care. Minnie has already started to show us how much she’s enjoying getting to be a regular dog, she started out a bit shy and quiet with us…but now Minnie has gained weight, she’s learned to play with toys and enjoy herself on walks, and boy does she LOVE to cuddle. She is often found snoozing on top of staff during lunch breaks, or following behind us everywhere we go. Minnie has been around other dogs previously, but has made it clear she doesn’t really want to live full time with another dog (and no cats please!). Because she has previously been a yard dog, Minnie is still learning the ins and outs of being encouraged to live in doors (new things can be scary! she recently learned she doesn’t need to be afraid of our rotating fan, for example). Minnie can be reactive to certain dogs out on walks, but she’s very easy to distract with treats and love to get her to keep moving along.

Name: Minnie
Age: 2 year old
Gender: Female
Animal ID: 550285
Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
Animals spend their whole lives loving us. This gift provides a day of regular care plus special medication, extra bedding and modified exercise for a senior animal like Sasha
