Facts about Minnie

  • Breed: Border Collie/Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
DOB 3/1/15
After seeing Minnie's shelter picture, we knew she needed out ASAP! She was so thin at only 25 lbs, and now after a lot of TLC from her foster, she is 40 lbs. Upon arriving on transport, she greeted everyone with tail wagging and kisses, she knew she was now safe. We think she might be Border Collie/Pit mix and about 1 yr old. After arriving at her foster home, she got to learn what being a puppy was all about, learning how to play and what a dog toy is. She has blossomed into a beautiful, happy, affectionate, active pup, who loves to go on walks. Minnie is not a fan of the crate, but doesn't need one since she does great without one. Cuddling up with her foster family at bed time, is one of her favorite things. Since she was an outside dog, she had to learn about housebreaking. She enjoys, is playful with and friendly with other dogs. Now that she has been shown what life should be like, she is looking for her forever family to continue showing her what love is.
If interested in meeting Minnie or for more information please go to to read about our adoption process. Here you will also find the application to fill out and send back.

About Always Room 4 More Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

Always Room 4 More Paws is a small group of volunteers dedicated to rescuing and re-homing companion animals. Most of our animals are rescued from high kill shelters and are temporarily housed in a loving foster home until they find their forever home. Our foster homes provide love, socialization and start the animal on basic training. Since our animals are in foster homes, we are able to learn about their individual personalities which aids in making a great match with their forever family.

Always Room 4 More Paws is a not-for-profit tax exempt 501 (c) (3) organization.
This status allows us to seek outside financial assistance. We do not receive any federal, state, or local funds. Nearly all of our funding is received from the general public through donations. Please visit our donation page to see how you can help and for information on our upcoming fundraisers.
