Mineko looks at people with such soulful and sad eyes as no one probably can imagine the harsh life she had as a stray on the mountain.  She was discovered by her rescuers through a Facebook post about her left rear leg being injured by animal trap and losing her paws showing just white knuckles bones trembling.  An amputation was done at the animal clinic where she’s staying.  She has recovered well and adapted to moving around with three legs.  Mineko is really sweet with people and patient with the puppies at the hospital that she would take care of them too.  She’s looking for an experienced family who works from home or can take her to work since she likes to be in people’s company. 


Mineko is spayed (July-18-2017), up to date with routine shots, micro-chipped, de-wormed and tested negative for heartworm.
