Lemon – adoption pending!


Blind Lemon Annie (any jazz fans out there?) is an excellent little girl for a peaceful home with people willing to give a little extra love and care to an affectionate dog with a special need. This small dog will thrive in a home where there is plenty of love. Lemon is a born cuddler who loves her people, she is happy to share lots of time, a bed and blanket with her trusted humans, and enjoys time together on frequent walks and car rides. Lemon is 5-6 year old female 10-pound Chichuahua/Minpin mix. Lemon had surgery to remove an injured eye and has very limited vision in the other (there are no ongoing issues, medications or special treatment as a result of surgery.) This may cause her to be nervous in hectic situations , or jump at the shadows that surprise her, so she would be happiest in a quiet home without the chaos of a large family, children and/or rambunctious pets. She is good with dogs, (but no pushover!) and she would do well with another calm dog about her age and size. Lemon needs supervision to do stairs so a one story home would be ideal.  A fenced yard is a must and Lemon must not be left outside alone unsupervised. Lemon can be vocal when left alone, so apartment living is unlikely to suit her (or the neighbors!)  Her ideal situation would be with an owner who is retired or works from home. Lemon is used to pee pads and to going outside to do her business. She is not crate-trained. Good on leash with encouragement and confident owner. Ignores neighborhood cats while on her frequent walks and loves car rides. A special little dog who would like to meet you and find her forever family. ——Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.
