Apply on our website ( https://www.healingheartsrescue.org/adopt )  to  set up a private meeting or check below for my adoption event schedule.   Age: Approximately 11 years old Weight: 13 pounds Dog friendly: yes, small dogs, but would prefer to live as an only dog Cat friendly: Yes, but prefers to be an only pet Kid friendly: No Potty trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes, but doesn’t need it If darling Mimi has a fault, it's that she loves too hard. This older girl is a delightful companion; affectionate, calm, and loving with her person, and she bonds quickly, but would prefer not to share. Her ideal world is one where she spends the majority of her time near her owner, in a quiet environment with no other pets, and few other people around. She is eager to please, and is learning not to resort to antisocial behaviors to protect her best beloved, but needs consistent reinforcement to succeed. She has loved every woman she has met, but is quite selective with men, and should not be around small children.  Mimi has some health challenges, like many older ladies, but is thriving with prescription food and arthritis medication. She is happy and playful, and loves to spend time snuggling or just being near you. She is house trained, does well in her crate, though she is just fine left free in the home, and both travels and walks on leash well. With a quiet environment and clear expectations she is delightful, loving, slightly goofy, and excellent company. She will be the perfect devoted companion to the right person, and is looking forward to spending the rest of her life loving them fiercely.   Adoption Fee: $395    Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.INTERESTED IN MEETING ME?

Hey there, folks! Oreo here, ready to give you the lowdown on why I'm the ultimate canine companion you've been searching for. First things first, I'm a fun-loving, affectionate dude. Let's talk fun! I live for those moments when I can dash around the yard, feeling the wind in my fur. And let me tell you, I've got some serious potential when it comes to agility – I'm nimble, quick, and always up for a challenge. Bring on the obstacles, I'll show 'em who's boss! However, I should go to a home with a fenced yard.  Now, onto the cozy stuff. Picture this: me, curled up on the couch, surrounded by soft blankets, and snuggled up next to you. Sounds dreamy, right? Well, that's just a typical evening for us if you decide to bring me into your home. Here's where I really shine – security detail. Forget about fancy alarm systems, because with me around, you've got the best security in town. I've got a keen eye and sharp ears, and I'll make sure to alert you if anyone even dares to step foot near our turf. No shared walls needed for this top-notch security system! And hey, let's not forget about my furry friends. I'm a social butterfly when it comes to other dogs – friendly, playful, and always up for a good time. So, if you've got canine companions at home, I'll fit right in like a missing puzzle piece. So, what do you say? Ready to invite a fun-loving, cuddle-ready, and ultra-secure pup like me into your life? I promise, once you meet me, you'll wonder how you ever lived without me. ##1946766##

Story
Hi! I’m Solomon, or “Sollie” as my foster parents call me. I’m a confident, friendly guy who is looking for my perfect home! A few things to know about me, so we can see if we are a match! As I said, I’m a confident dog who like to take the lead and can be a bit stubborn, but once I’m comfortable I’m sweet as can be! I’m living with some other foster dogs right now but honestly, I could take them or leave them. I might be happiest being the center of your universe! I’ve also been lucky enough to see some farm animals and they don’t really interest me either. I love, love taking walks and that is something I would love to do a lot of. I’m good on a leash, but please use a harness for me because I get excited and pull sometimes which is hard on my little neck. I can be a little bitey if you’re trying to make me do something I don’t want to do or if I’m nervous, so living without little humans who might not respect my cues is probably not the best fit. I love to sit by you and cuddle, and I’m good if we just have a movie night although I will entertain myself with toys if you provide them! My foster family says I’m really well housetrained, but I did have a couple accidents the first day just because I was nervous. Since then, I’ve been sure to let them know when I need to go out and haven’t had any accidents at all. I slept in a crate the first week and although I didn’t love going in there, I was good once I was in. But, I much prefer sleeping in a bed next to my foster mom’s bed where I can curl up and get cozy. I don’t love being left alone, and I will whine or sing a bit and maybe even try scratching the door for a minute to see if you will come back. But eventually I will just settle down and make myself at home on the couch and wait for you. Because I do love to sing sometimes I would probably prefer not to have any close neighbors like in a townhouse or apartment. Thanks for checking me out and I look forward to meeting you!   ##1990293##
