My name is Minnie and I am a super friendly girl. My doctor says I am a Labrador Retriever mix (but no Holstein--HaHa) and that I am about 4-5 years old. Purple PAWS rescued me from a shelter with one of my babies. I was very skinny when I was found and my foster dad said I looked like a “skinny Minnie” so the name Minnie stuck. I had three babies but two of them did not survive because I was so malnourished I could not produce milk to feed them.
I weighed 36 pounds when I went to see my doctor. He examined me and said I am healthy other than being malnourished. My foster mom and dad are feeding me canned puppy food four times a day and I always have puppy kibble available so I am getting to be my best weight. Once I reach my ideal weight I can start eating on a regular schedule. I tested negative for heartworm, ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, and anaplasmosis. My doctor gave me a rabies vaccination and Purple PAWS is making sure I get all other needed vaccinations.
I am everybody’s friend and I just want to be with my people whenever I can. I know they have to leave sometimes and I am OK with that now that I know they will come back. I love being pet and especially getting my belly rubbed. I walk well on a leash and I am learning stay, come, and “go to the house”. I am starting to play fetch. I did not know what a treat was, but I am learning. I am good with other dogs when my baby is not around but if my baby is there I am protective of him. I will bark at strange noises because I was alone on the streets and had to protect myself and my babies. My foster parents are teaching me I am safe and do not need to be scared of noises. I am still working on being house trained. I do not know any tricks like sit, lay down, etc. but I would like for you to teach me those and more. OH, I do like to give you kisses!
I will be spayed on January 28 and then I will be ready to find my furever family to love. If you think I am your dream girl, you can apply to adopt me at purple-paws.org. My adoption fee is $200 which helps cover my spay, vaccinations, doctor visits, and other expenses.
