Mimi is a 13 year old spayed Maltese that has no past or current medical issues that the owner is aware of. Owner has had Mimi for the last 9 years but had to surrender due to owners medical problems.
According to the owner, around strangers Mimi is friendly and plays gently with adults. She has been around children ages 8-9 & was relaxed and respectful with them. She has also been around a male dog and was relaxed with him. Mimi has never bit another animal or person while in the care of the owner.
When there are thunderstorms or fireworks outside, Mimi is not bothered by them. She is friendly when being given a bath. When the owner would try to take away her food, disturb her while sleeping or if unfamiliar people would approach the owner, Mimi was not bothered by it. Mimi will growl when someone tries to take away her treats or toys and will bark when unfamiliar people would approach the owner’s home. When owner would try to brush Mimi’s coat, she would snap. Owner has never tried to hold Mimi back or restrain her or trim her nails therefore behavior is unknown.
For a New Family to Know:
Mimi is described as friendly, affectionate, and mellow with a low activity level. In the home, she liked to follow the owner around and be in the same room as the owner. She enjoys playing with tennis balls. Mimi was kept indoors only and is mostly house trained. She will pee or poop in the home a few times a month. Owner stated that Mimi would sleep on the carpet as she likes to tear up her bed. Owner stated that when Mimi was left alone in the home, she was always well behaved. Mimi was never crate trained therefore behavior is unknown. She knows the commands come, and stay. For exercise, Mimi would be taken on off leash walks outside. When on the leash, Mimi does not pull at all. She does well being off leash and will stay by the owners side.
Behavior during intake: Mimi was nervous during intake and let out a growl when I approached her. After a few minutes I tried approaching her again and was able to scan for a mc, collar and take Mimi’s picture without any issues. She kept lip licking during intake and but was more relaxed when I approached her slowly.
Mimi’s previous owner reported that she has been around a male dog and was relaxed.
9/19: When off leash at the care center, Mimi greets a few dogs in a group but mostly keeps to herself and explores the room.
