Meet Mimsy (Benefactor Puppy)

Hiya everybody! Introducing the world’s cutest puppy Mimsy.

Oh my! She is just about the cutest little scruffy to wiggle her way into rescue, well since the last one. But come on. That face!

Mimsy is estimated to have been born in late July of this year. She turned up on a porch nearly drained (literally!!!) from fleas. She was so weak, she kept falling over from the spray in her life saving bath. In the first half hour, she had a Capstar and washed hundreds of her closest friends (fleas) down the drain. 24 hours later, she was a whole new puppy, full of life and love to give!

She has now gotten an all clear from the vet, had her first round of shots, started on heartworm prevention, and is microchipped. The vet guessed a wirehaired terrier mix. We thought maybe some chihuahua, but really your guess is as good as ours. The important part, the vet guesses she is a small breed and will likely remain under 20 pounds (of course that is just a guess). Mimsy is a happy, sweet as pie puppy and absolutely adorable. She is working on potty training - still a baby. She is great in her crate, doesn't make a peep, and sleeps in it all night. She loves to play with all of the other dogs - bigs and littles. She especially loves cuddles from her people. Her little wiggle when she sees you coming… The. Cutest. Thing. Ever!

Now comes the fun part. Mimsy is on the hunt for her forever family and home. She is pretty perfect so we don’t expect her to wait long. Think you might be the right fit? Get your app in today. There is only one Mimsy.

This sweetheart is ready for a forever home!

This puppy is a Benefactor Puppy. His/her increased adoption fee will allow them to act as a benefactor to other dogs in our care that require special medical care and a better chance at adoption.

Please note: as with most rescue puppies, we have no way to guarantee this puppy’s breed or size potential.


If you are interested in meeting and/or adopting, the first step is to please visit our website to complete an application and read all of our FAQs:

**Please do not use the "Introduce Yourself" feature. The information needed to determine if you might be a match for one of our animals can only be found on our application. An inquiry, questions or introduction through Petfinder is NOT an application. All known details about our animals are posted on their profile and updated daily. Other info would be discussed in detail with the foster during the application review process. Due to the number of introductions/questions received (hundreds daily) we ask you submit an application on our website (that application can be used for any dog with Take Paws Rescue).

The adoption fee for puppies covers initial deworming, puppy vaccinations, microchip, and spay/neuter at the rescue's approved vet at 6 months of age. Please see our website for more information.

2022 Benefactor Adoption Fee Scale:
Benefactor Puppies under 12 months - $550
Benefactor Dogs over 12 months - $450

*Take Paws Rescue saves dogs from high-kill shelters in Southeast Louisiana, owner surrenders, and discarded dogs with uncertain futures. All of our puppies live in foster homes where they are socialized, and well cared for. An application will be required to make sure it’s the perfect match!

For additional information, including the adoption process and our adoption fee scale for all our adoptable pets, see our FAQs page:

*Any breed labels used by Take Paws Rescue, its employees/volunteers, or on vet records provided cannot be guaranteed. Breed labels are given based on information obtained during intake and/or best guesses based on appearance and/or temperament of the dogs and Take Paws Rescue gives no assurance to the accuracy of these labels. Labels are necessary for postings to many animal networking sites, such as Pet Finder, and are no way a guarantee. Additionally, exact age and potential size cannot be guaranteed.
