Meet Precious

Meet Precious. She is a very sweet 7 year old gal who likes to be Miss Independent. What do we mean by that?

Precious is kind of like that aloof roommate you have who doesn't get excited about things and takes some time to get to know new people. She'll be listening to you talk about your day, but when you are done talking, she's hanging out in her room the rest of the night. And maybe she started walking away when you were still talking.

If you are looking for a dog that likes to take walks in the neighborhood, or snuggle with you, Precious is not your gal as she prefers neither of those things.

She doesn't like to be picked up (it's tempting, because she only weighs 12 pounds, but that's a hard pass) and doesn't like to be cuddled. She would just like to coexist with you. She's super soft and has a beautiful coat - which you'll need to keep groomed but balanced with her preference to not get a ton of petting.

Precious won't think a nice day is great opportunity to go for a walk with you. She would prefer a leisurely stroll off leash in a fenced in back yard. If you want to be out with her, she's cool with that. If not, she'll let you know when she wants to come back in.

Speaking of disliking a ton of activity, we are hoping that Precious goes to a home with a single level. Precious is wider and low to the ground and going down stairs is somewhat of an event for her and she doesn't prefer it.

Precious is fine with other dogs and cats, if they leave her alone. She'll observe them, but has zero interest in hanging out with them or heaven forbid, playing with them. Remember how she's that aloof roommate? She would like to be invited to things, but will never actually come to the party or game night.

Precious can be talkative, and it's best if she is not in a home with shared walls. She'll let you know regularly what is going on outside and sometimes people don't appreciate that when you share a living room wall.

It is important to know that her kennel is her safe space and will always need the kennel available so she can go there when she is feeling anxious or overwhelmed.

While Precious would enjoy eating the leftover pizza crusts off of your plate that you have left on the coffee table, she instead needs to eat her high-priced prescription food ($75/dry food bag, $107/canned food) so as not to become a fluffy bowling ball with stomach issues. This is a dietary recommendation from her vet and should be an important factor when considering her adoption.

Precious might be a dog with quirks, but she 100% deserves a wonderful home with a human companion who will accept her for who she is and love her unconditionally… from a distance the majority of the time.

Adoption fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm/Lyme test, all age-appropriate vaccinations (distemper, rabies, & Bordetella), HW and flea/tick preventative, and microchip implant and registration. Adoption fees INCLUDE a mandatory sales tax of 7.525%.

There is no guarantee of age and breed as a rescue animal's history is unknown. All ages and breeds are best guess.

Due to post-adoption services provided, we prefer to adopt within a 90-mile radius of Minneapolis; however, we will consider up to 250 miles if the adopter is willing to drive to cities as needed.
