Facts about Nora

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Dachshund Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
When we rescued Nora the shelter stated she was quite fearful and they suspected she may have a broken pelvis. The good news? There were no signs of a broken pelvis. The not so good news? She was diagnosed with pneumonia. :(

The first week in foster care proved to be a challenge for Nora. She wanted to flee from being touched and wouldn't eat. On top of that she was sick and required medicating.

Thanks to the teamwork of our patient volunteers and their gentle hands Nora made tremendous progress. She is now all better, has become part of the pack, is willing to cuddle with her foster family, and becoming less skittish when approached. Nora has never shown any aggression, she's simply nervous in new situations.

Nora is looking for a forever home where her new family will take the extra time to allow her to adjust and become comfortable. Could that be you?

About Mini Mighty Mutts

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a nonprofit, 501(C)(3), all volunteer, limited admission small dog rescue organization funded by private donations and adoption fees. We are a group of individuals who are dedicated to rescuing small breed dogs who have been abandoned, abused, neglected or left behind by their former owners. Our belief is that companion animals are living beings who are not merely "pets" but family members. We strive to find homes for them who share this view. We are committed to providing them with a temporary home where they receive veterinary care, including spay or neuter, socialization, exercise, love and good nutrition until their forever home can be found. We do not discriminate against small dogs based on breed or physical disability.

Mini Mighty Mutts is a limited admissions rescue. We can only take in as many animals as our foster homes can safely and responsibly care for. We do not euthanize animals to make room for more. We simply stop taking in new animals until we have room. Each homeless dog will remain in our care until he or she finds a new home.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an application and a home visit prior to all of our adoptions. We do adopt out of state, and may have a representative from another rescue complete the home visit for us. Once the home visit is completed and approved, the dog is available for you to adopt! While this sounds like a lengthy process, it actually is often completed in a day or two. We have an adoption contract that is filled out at the time of adoption, along with adoption fee's collected at that time.
Our adoption fee's are
Under 1yr: $250
1yr to 9yrs: $200
10yrs and up: $150
