Mickey's Story...
We would like to explain that if you are looking for a perfect dog, they are rarely found in rescue. Our dogs often have unknown histories and we do our very best to evaluate each dog with kids, cats, and other dogs as well as determine how they behave in a home. It is important to understand that we have some specific criteria for each dog based on their backgrounds and input from their foster families. The purpose of these criteria is to better match each dog with an appropriate family. While a certain dog might appeal to you based on breed, size, gender or appearance, you may not match the listed criteria. Please understand that we are not trying to make adoption difficult—we are trying to make each adoption successful for the dog and the new family.
If you have children, we suggest that prior to applying for a dog, you view the website http://www.livingwithkidsanddogs.com. The information is excellent and can help you determine which dog would be right for your family.

After some consideration, Mickey appears to be a shih tzu dachshund mix who came from a local shelter. Mickey has a darling face with his little underbite and his feathery coat. We believe he's about 9 years old and overweight at 13 pounds. Mickey does very well with females who are gentle and let him set the pace. He was so happy when foster mom returned from an errand that he danced a jig and then stood up to give her a kiss!!! He also rolls over to have his fat tummy rubbed! (He is on diet dog food--Instinct Healthy Weight) but he would really prefer to beg for snacks from you. It does take him some time gain your trust, but he is a devoted little buddy once he bonds with you. Mickey is really afraid of men and he must live in a female only home without any men coming and going. He also is not good with kids but does okay with dogs and cats. He is also dependably house trained and will go outside or will use a puppy pad. Mickey is not a barker. Some of the criteria for Mickey's his new home include (1) women only and older teen girls, (2) preferably someone who is home at least half time although he will use a puppy pad when you are gone if it's quite a while, (3) preferably a fenced yard or willingness to walk him daily, and (4) experience with dogs who have had bad experiences in their lives. This precious boy would be so happy to have his own lady friend! Mickey is with Happy Hound Rescue. He is neutered, up to date on shots, worming, heartworm and flea/tick prevention and is microchipped. His adoption fee is $250.00

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mickey, a Osseo Papillon/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Papillon/Chihuahua for sale in Osseo, or seeking a Papillon/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Osseo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Osseo already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Osseo breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Papillon/Chihuahua breeders who help with Papillon/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Osseo paves the way for another one to be saved.
