Meet Mimsy. This is another pitiful girl who is displaced because of the death of her owner. She is currently being cared for by a stranger who over heard the family's need for help with this adorable girl. We don't have a lot of information about Mimsy's life before now, so we are guessing she is a 12-ish-year-old rat terrier. She is is a petite thing weighing only 10 pounds. Mimsy greets strangers with a bark then continues to wag her tail and offer kisses. Once she has really relaxed you get to see her true spirit. She is silly, fun, and super cuddly.

Mimsy is great with other dogs. We believe she lived with dogs in the past, but she has also been around other dogs with her current caregiver. We also have learned that she does not like cats. Mimsy is good with children, even toddlers. However, she does expect them to be gentle and not to constantly want to pick her up. If that is understood, she loves to make kids her playmate with a game of chase of fetch. Mimsy has great house manners and is solidly housebroken. She does not need to be crated as she is totally trustworthy when left alone.

Mimsy will be up to date on shots, heartworm negative, microchipped and spayed. Her fur is missing in places as she has recovered from a case of flea dermatitis. She might also need some glucosamine for her hips. He rear legs seem to be a little stiff, although nothing seems to slow her down.

If you are interested in helping us help Mimsy please complete an adoption application on our website at Her adoption fee is $125.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a rescue/ rhoming service that provides education and assistance for owners in our community to keep pets in their home. When that is not an option or we come across animals in need, we will take them into our foster-based program, work with them, seek all necessary vetting, and find them the perfect home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do various adoption events in the community. If you would like to meet one of our available adoptables, please email us!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is to complete the adoption application on our website. Once we have reviewed the applications, we will contact the potential adopters to arrange a meet and greet. This can take several days depending on the popularity of the animal.
