7 YEARS OLD, ABOUT 12 POUNDS – LOVES CUDDLING AND YOUR COMPANY ABOVE ALL – SO MUCH LOVE TO GIVE – LOVES WALKS – WOULD DO WELL WITH NO OTHER DOG OR ANOTHER CALM DOG
Dear Sassy was with Minpinerie before – she was adopted and very much loved and lived with another little dog (male chi) to whom she bonded really well, they used to curl up together at night, but the owner got quite ill and could not take care of her anymore, so she was surrendered so we could find her a home where another loving person can open their heart and their home to her. She is a puppy mill survivor, she cannot stand to be contained, so she should not be crated. She loves to be with her people. Miss Sassy is a lovely little 7 year-old MinPin. She has had a tough life, and she so much love to give and wants nothing more than to be with her human and to be snuggled and loved back. Walks are one of her favourite things to do and she is pretty good on leash. She has lots of energy and she might not come back in an off-leash situation. Sassy loves to sleep under blankets as a true Minpin does but she has also learned to enjoy curling up in a bed in front of the fireplace. Wants to have a sweater on before she goes outside to do her business, especially once it gets dark. She has had a hernia fixed near her bladder and she is now starting to learn that she can hold her urine more easily than before and with frequent trips outside, housetraining is pretty much good again. Her foster Mom lets her outside frequently and working on learning the words “Sassy go pee”. One thing that Sassy doesn’t like is to be closed in; she has spent too many years trapped in a cage and it causes her a lot of stress. There are not many teeth left in her mouth but she does deal with a few kibble with her soft food at meal time. She has some insecurity about food, and will steal treats if she can get away with it and has a bit of food aggression, but it is easily dealt with. Her foster Mom says “I think that Sassy could be an only dog as long as her person is with her for most of the day. She might benefit from being with a calmer, older dog or someone her own age. She is a wonderful little dog with tons of love and laughter to provide anyone willing to finish her housetraining.”———Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog.
