Despite years spent in a dark basement, sweet, petite Mitzy holds no grudges. This approximately 7 yr. old black beauty weighed in at only 36 pounds when she came into Brookline Lab Rescue, emaciated and craving human attention. She was also limping – the result of no one caring enough to have her broken leg fixed.
She has thrived in foster care, loving the attention and gaining some badly needed weight. Her years of neglect are over and she is on the road to finding her forever home!
Mitzy loves nothing more than to be with her humans. In fact, that is her favorite pastime – snuggling! She will never be much of a ball retriever or tug-of-war player – she’d much prefer a belly rub or going for a long walk any day.
Mitzy is happiest when someone is around. She is fine with free roam when alone, but would do best in a home where she can spend as much time as possible with her people.
Since no one was around to comfort her in her younger years, Mitzy is afraid of things like thunderstorms and firecrackers and vacuum cleaners, and the vet isn’t her favorite place to visit (but then how many of us like to go to the doctor?).
She also had little chance to socialize with other dogs, so she really prefers being a princess. As a princess, she can tolerate older, calmer dogs, but would really rather not share the limelight if given the choice. Mitzy really wants your undivided attention!
So, if you want someone who loves nothing more than the wind in her ears as you drive, who will love accompanying you on long daily walks, who enjoys being brushed and pampered, and who would love nothing more than to sleep beside you, then petite Mitzy is the dog for you!
