Mina is a wonderful senior Italian Greyhound, who is seal and white in color. Although she is 13 years old she is in very great health overall, goes up and down stairs without issue, listens well, and just wants a comfy couch or lap to snuggle upon. She has already had her shots updated, and had a dental cleaning in late 2016 so she is already for her new home to come along.
Mina came into rescue because her previous owner became unable to care for her due to age. Her potty habits are excellent and she is only trained to go potty outdoors. She is on the larger side for an Italian Greyhound, weighing around 22 lbs estimated, but not overweight at all for her structure. Her eyes are a little cloudy, and she listens well. She doesn't like to be quickly approached like many Italian Greyhounds, and would rather lay down before she is picked up. When kenneled she is quiet, although when she was first in her foster home she did howl and bark due to being separated from her owner. After about a week that subsided and she is generally quiet now, and likes to lay against the arm of the couch most of the day. When she does talk to you now, you can call her name and say no and she stops. Overall she has a friendly disposition, and just wants a new owner to give her attention and regular walks. Mina does need a fenced yard as she would be a dog that would want to explore if not confined we think, so that is required for this girl. She does fine with other dogs, and we are not sure about cats. But, she does not seem to care about squirrels or birds outdoors, so she may be fine with cats too.
