A Volunteer Wrote: There are the lump-in-the-throat dogs, and this one goes like this: A dog who clearly has suffered at the hands of humans, and yet is still so in love with people, so in love with life, who is so gentle and kind it is as if it is all he has ever known. The gorgeous Pedro Minx—look at those blue eyes!—has paws and nails that suggest he has spent the majority of time in a crate, and he is a bit scrawny. But oh my goodness his soul. The grandness of it! He’s so gentle and sweet with a contagious calm—several of us found ourselves gathered around him to hang out for a while, and all of our voices naturally lowered just being in his presence. By the time he settled in for a lap and a kiss, we knew we were goners. What Pedro Minx’s ever-growing fan club would like so much would be for him to be a goner, gone into a loving home with an individual or family who will
more than make up for what he’s been through, just by loving him. What a deal! All we ask is that you please send photos…

Summary: Pedro Minx displayed no behavioral concerns on his assessment.
10/21: When off leash with a neutered male Pedro Minx is tolerant of greeting and needs time to warm up before he begins to engage in soft play. An unaltered female is allowed in the pen and Pedro Minx solely focuses on mounting her, not ceasing attempting when correction is offered.
10/22: Pedro Minx is sexually motivated but will engage in play when solicited by males and females.
