Brooklyn Center, MN
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Good with dogs, Spayed or Neutered,
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Meet Pink! She is a goofy, snuggly, and adorable gal from Mexico. Look at those ears! Sometimes they are up, sometimes they are down, and sometimes they are both! She loves to snuggle her people on the couch and take walks outside. She does really well on a leash, knows how to sit, and is doing so well with potty training! Pink sleeps in her kennel and stays in it when we are at work. She isn't the biggest fan of her kennel but sleeps through the night and quiets down pretty quickly during the day too.  Pink is pretty cautious around new people and needs to be introduced slowly. She is wary of quick movements when in new environments and around unknown people. However, once she is comfortable around you she loves you and will follow you around.  She can be a sneaky one! Pink loves to explore under beds, hop on tables, and find food hiding in backpacks or bags. Lucky for you she doesn't chew on things unless it's food! Curious might be her middle name!  She does really well around other dogs but has not been around cats or small children.   Adoption fee includes: Full veterinary exam, Alter, Prepaid microchip, Dewormed, Rabies vaccine (if age appropriate), Distemper combo vaccine(s) appropriate to age, Bordetella vaccine, 4DX (over 6 months of age), Flea/tick and heartworm preventative while in rescue. Adoption fee: $650.00  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.October 1, 2023, 1:05 am

  Hi! I am Bella and I am looking for my forever home! I came all the way from Texas to the lovely state of Minnesota and so far I am loving it! The grass is so much softer up here and I love to play in it. I am still little so I am working on my potty training but my foster parents say I am fast learner (I even learned how to do the stairs in 1 day!)  I love to play with the dogs and kids who live in my foster house! Also any squeaky toy you have I would love to chase it!  My foster mom says I would be a great addition to any family.   Are you my forever home?! ##1822161##

Good with dogs,
Hi! My name is Pearl and I am from a shelter in Kentucky. I used to live in a home with a human and one other dog-a boy dog who was just a few pounds bigger than me. Then, sadly, our human passed away and we ended up in an animal control. Pearl is a loving and playful girl who enjoys playing with toys especially with her human. She is house trained, as long as we stick to a schedule. She likes toys, especially anything you can wriggle to look like a mouse or chipmunk. She loves attention and cuddling on the couch. She gives lots of "kisses. She loves going for walks and seems comfortable on a leash. When we bring her for walks around a nearby lake we often encounter other dogs. Pearl is generally calm around other dogs-big and small-but will growl or bark back if another dog growls at her. She also may get nervous and/or bark if there is a bottle-neck and there are a large number of people and/or dogs converging on a path that has no walking space to the side of the path (of course, there are training alternatives to this situation and I can give you materials with options on how to respond to this scenario). She seems fine with kids ages 7 and up (although she doesn't currently live with any). Kids younger than that seem to make her uncomfortable if they approach her and come within arm's reach. Pearl does seem to have some separation anxiety which means that when she is left home alone she does sometimes bark and howl so would not do well in a home with shared walls. Pearl has beautiful, soft hair. If you are thinking of applying to adopt Pearl please know that she needs someone willing to spend a bit more time on her hair than what some other dogs need. Her hair requires daily brushing and combing to the skin to keep her coat from matting. Although we can't know her breed mix for certain, if you look up Maltipoo (a maltese - poodle mix), the traits and personality characteristics listed fit with what we have observed of her so far. Pearl loves her humans and likes getting attention. This tiny dog has a whole lot of love to give to someone willing to give her the time and attention she needs.
