Minnie the dog is looking for a new home in the Vancouver area

Minnie is a gentle soul looking for a calm forever home where there is always a hand available for scritches! Minnie was picked up as a stray in Prince George, so we don’t have much information about her history before she came into our care. She is a little hesitant of strangers, but once she realizes you want to be her friend she buries her head in your lap and waits for her pets! She has excellent leash manners (although she prefers her walks short and sweet!) and knows how to sit on command. She also loves a good brushing and just melts into you while you groom her. This older gal isn’t going to be a hiking or adventure dog, but she will be a fantastic snuggle buddy or work-from-home companion! She cannot go into a home with either kids or other animals. She will chase cats and children makes her nervous.

Minnie is an older lady and has been diagnosed with arthritis and hip dysplasia by our vets. As a result, she is a little stiff and will need to be on medications to manage her pain for the foreseeable future. That being said, the regimen that she is on at the moment is working quite well for her and she doesn’t have any trouble getting around or up and down stairs. We recommend that she go to a home without any other pets (although she does get along with other dogs) so that she isn’t at risk of hurting herself while playing. Does Minnie sound like the sweet soulmate that you’ve been searching for?
