Minnie is an approx 10 yr old female terrier mix. She was given to the person who surrendered her from a nephew’s girlfriend 2 weeks ago. Her new owner has to surrender her because they are worried about health costs. Minnie has not had any illnesses or injuries while she has been with them and she has not been to the vet.
Around strangers Minnie is friendly and quiet. She has spent time with two children in the home, ages 7 and 5 and with them she was relaxed, playful, respectful and played gently with them and the adults in the home. There were no other pets in the home that she was in but apparently before lived in a home with other dogs. His new owner did not observe her with other dogs. She was not around cats or other animals. She did not bite anyone or another animal while with her most recent family.
Minnie wasn’t bothered when someone touched her food bowl while she was eating. She wasn’t bothered when getting a bath or when getting brushed. When someone unfamiliar approached her house or her family member she would bark and wag her tail.
For new family
Minnie is described as friendly, mellow and affectionate. Her activity level is low and she would follow everyone around the house. She was kept mostly indoors and slept on a dog bed in the living room. She was eating wet food 2xday. She seemed housebroken, but the new family did not want to walk her so she was using wee-wee pads in the home. She is well-behaved when left alone and would get very excited when her owners would come home. She knew “sit and come” commands and was never crate trained. She was never left off leash and did not pull on the leash at all.
During intake Minnie seemed a little nervous but let the counselor collar her and pick her up and bear hug her. She sought affection from the counselor and jumped on counselor’s knees and let her body melt into the counselor’s legs. She was very sweet towards the counselor.
