Facts about Ma Barker

  • Breed: Miniature Pinscher
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10830323

Ma Barker came to us right after she and all her other furry family members were removed from a home where a drug bust went down. She was afraid and thin. After I earned her trust the first day, she has been my little lap dog ever since. She was heartworm positive and has been with us the last 3 months under treatments. She is now heartworm free and has gone from 13 to 16 pounds. She is a real character and she will make a family a really nice mouthy little snuggle pup.

Ma needs a home that is used to dealing with small little high energy dogs. She has been kid friendly with my 3 year old granddaughter when she has visited but she does need slow intros with new people. She can be a bit scared at first and she will bark at new people. I think I finally got her to realize the pharmacist and drive through banking window are safe and if she's nice they will give her a treat. With a bit of time and patience she will become your best friend.

Age: 5 years
Weight: 16 lbs

About Last Hope K9 Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our mission at Last Hope K9 Rescue is to save every possible dog we can from being euthanized within high-volume kill shelters throughout the U.S.

As the literal “last hope” of nearly every animal we serve, we work tirelessly to place each one within a stable, loving environment that can act as either their forever home, or the gateway to their forever home. We also strive to ensure that all of our adoptions and foster placements are the optimal fit for everyone involved, including our dogs. This leads to our second goal: enriching human lives through canine companionship. To us, you can’t have one without the other.

Lastly, we promote animal welfare by lobbying important initiatives that both protect and give voice to the voiceless. By fostering an environment of collaboration with other organizations that share our goals, and working together instead of in competition, we find that we accomplish more.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We set up private meetings because all of our dogs are in foster homes. Please email to schedule a meeting with one of our dogs!
