Caramel – ADOPTED!


Caramel is about 9 months old. We are looking for a suitable home with an owner who will housetrain him and has no kids under 12. Minpinerie does not encourage or approve of dogs as gifts or surprises – dogs are  a lifelong commitment and there must be a meet and greet with potential owners before we grant a trial adoption. Xmas time is a bad time to bring in a puppy with all the activity, so we may choose to postpone trial adoption until after Christmas unless we feel the applicant is very suitable and is home to housetrain him (not gone all day, we don’t want him crated) and is fully committed to this dog. He was surrendered by a family that did not understand a dog’s needs and we don’t want him in that situation again. We don’t know about how he is with cats, but another dog close in age but more mature would be good to teach him manners. Apartments probably ok as he’s quiet, but Caramel is not housetrained. He is a delightful friendly baby, quick to learn and obedient, comes when he is called,  loves to play with the other  dogs and be with his person..he would love to ride  in a truck with someone all day  as he is very person orientated. He sits for treats. He has  fine “maltese” hair that will need daily combing  and he  was  professionally groomed and tolerated  it very well.  He sleeps cuddled close to his human. We want the right home for this little chap, and if that sounds like you, fill out an application please. ——Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area. All of our dogs are fully vetted and fixed, and we assess behaviour and tendencies to the fullest extent possible so that our adoptions will be as successful as possible. You must fill out the application and be approved to adopt. If the specific dog in this post hasn’t captured your heart or sound suitable, please understand we have dogs arriving all the time, and many of our arrivals go quickly to pre-approved adopters who have already filled out their applications (many dogs are never posted to our website!). By filling out the application and going through the approval process, you’ll ensure you adopt a suitable dog as soon as possible and we ensure our dogs to go to the right homes as quickly as possible! We look forward to hearing from you soon! Here is the link to the application! If you have technical difficulties, go here for a work-around.
