I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Maxine is a female Min Pin - approximately 5 years old and weighs in at about 17 lbs. Her tail is docked, her ears are cropped- although not the best job we've ever seen!
“Maxi” was a puppy mill rescue that we were fortunate enough to help. After all those years of endless puppies for profit, her former owner decided she was no longer needed. The blessing for her is now she has a chance at a real life! Although shy, she is very, very sweet, never snapping or growling even through all she has been through in the last couple of weeks. All the different people, shots, and surgery, never so much as a nip! She is now spayed and her large abdominal hernia (how could they have continued to breed her with that not being taken care of?)is gone. She is also current on vaccines, HW- and micro chipped.
There is a lot that Maxi has never experienced, such as normal household sounds, going outside to potty, a warm bed of her own, kind words and soft hands. She is a quiet little dog, haven’t heard her bark yet, and mostly just curls up in her bed as if it is the most precious thing to her. We are working on the house training and also walking on a leash. She makes a little progress every day and although she seems to want to come to me, she holds back, still not sure if it is okay. Maybe she thinks she is dreaming, that this “other” life will be taken away from her, and she will be sent back to the mill.
Maxine will need a patient and quiet home. Although she has been exposed to children, loud noise and rough play may be a bit too much for her. She gets along fine with all her foster brothers and sisters, and doesn’t seem to have any interest in the cats. She has deep soulful eyes and if you look close enough, you can see the fear being replaced with hope - hope for a better life, someone to love her, someone she can love/ trust and of course---a nice soft bed to call her own.
Could you or your family make this little girls dream come true?
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Maxine's foster mom Aimee.
