Minnie came to us under extraordinary circumstances and needed to be taken in immediately.  She was surrendered due to mouthiness and excessive amounts of energy.  For us, it turned into a blessing!

 
Minnie weighs about 40lbs.  She is housebroken, and does know some basic commands, although some diligence is needed. She is a dog that loves to be at your side and will follow you where ever you go, so expect a nearby companion. She loves a variety of toys, such as, frisbees and tennis balls.  She loves to chew, so don`t expect the toys to last long (she`s destroyed 3 tennis balls and 2 tug o` war ropes so far). Solid bones and Kong are some of her favorites. she likes to go on walks, and will pull only a little on the leash unless surprised or she sees another critter that interests her. She is progressively liking baths and cuddling for a little while. She is a very active dog, can rock the head tilt, and loves to give kisses. She`s incredibly smart and clever; when trying to bring her in off leash or kennel, tactics to get her to follow only work 2 times, then she figures our what your trying to do.
 
Some additional things to know about her:
 
Minnie was removed from her previous household for `herding` the children. while she is still a puppy, this could be associated with nipping/biting. Minnie does show signs that her previous household was very strict on her, and while she`ll follow along side me (I`m male), she does become slightly fearful of my movement towards her. She does well around females, but a male in the household should have a calm, gentle demeanor.  Mouthiness was an issue in the beginning, but she is progressively becoming softer and is learning not to do it. Fear can immobilize her, and she`ll immediately drop to submission, regardless of being led to food. Getting her to eat can be a challenge as she will leave her food alone unless the environment is calm and quiet. She`ll even refuse treats, with the impression there is a catch.  Even during training, she`ll turn away from treats and refuse to participate. `Time Out` works wonderfully, she knows what it means, acknowledges the purpose, and is more at ease with this form of discipline.

A home visit by one of our representatives is required prior to finalizing any adoption, and we must meet all members of the household where the pet will be living sometime during the adoption process.
