Mimi A1107971 is a Yorkie/Shih Tzu Mix. The owner was unsure of how old she is because she was a gift from family, a year ago. The main reason for surrender is that the owner does not have time for Mimi. Mimi has not been to a veterinarian recently.
Mimi is friendly with strangers. She plays gentle with adults. Mimi has not lived with children and it is unknown how she is around them. Mimi has not lived with another animal. Mimi has never bitten anyone.
Mimi does not have any behavior concerns. She allows you to take away her food bowl, water bowl or toy away. Mimi allows you to bathe her. Mimi is not bothered if held, restrained, or moved off of furniture. If an unfamiliar approaches the doorway, she barks.
