Meet Minka

Feeling lonely? Need someone to make you feel appreciated? You’ve come to the right place!
This spunky little girl is Minka. She’s estimated to be about 7-8 years old, and absolutely full of love and admiration. She follows you from room to room, and if you happen to close a door on her don’t worry- she will grunt and huff until you let her in!
Her hobbies include staring at her humans lovingly, sitting on their laps, and sleeping. She likes other dogs too, but she will waltz right into your house and let them know that she’s the boss!
She will begrudgingly wait for you to come home when you must leave her (not destructive and does not need to be kenneled), and is about 80% potty trained (all this rain isn’t helping!). She enjoys a bone or chew but hasn’t shown much interest in toys. She does expect to be able to sleep in bed with her humans, and is a good girl who will quietly sleep under the covers the entire night.

Now you’d expect that a diva like this came from royalty, but unfortunately what we know about her past life is just the opposite. She has a quirky walk, which prompted us to take x-rays to check for any injuries. What we found was previous trauma to her spine/vertebrae that has healed, and a metal BB in her leg. Someone wanted this girl gone. But she survived and found someone to treat her like the princess she is!
Because of her previous back injury, her adopter will need to limit her from jumping off couches and beds, and be prepared to have a good relationship with their vet. Much like a human with a history of a bad back, she will likely hurt it often and need pain medications and rest for a few days to bounce back from it. I assure you this is a very small price to pay for the love and affection this tiny girl will give you in return!
