Meet Mimzy!

Note: This dog is not in our program.
This is a courtesy listing only, to assist in finding him/her a home.

Mimzy - approximately 2 years old, 9 lbs.

Mimzy is a wanna be Griff. She has the velcro personality, and an under bite that can't help but make you smile.

Mimzy is just now settling into her foster home. She is a smart one and has responded well to "no". Her foster home has dogs and cats. She will chase one of the cats, but only because the cat runs. She wants to play with the other two but they don't agree so she backs off.

Mimzy cannot be crated, she will bark non-stop. But she has shown no destructive behavior so she has free run of the house. She has done well with her house training though she will also use the wee pads I have down for my seniors. She loves to run, run, run in the back yard. She likes toys and playing with other dogs. She has a food guarding issue but as long as they respect her bowl, she is fine. I can pick up the dish with no problem.

Mimzy likes to cuddle and nozzle your neck. She would love to sleep in the bed but she currently sleeps in the living room with some of my other dogs. But when I take naps and all the dogs are allowed, she settles right down. She does have high energy and needs to be able to run and play. Another dog as a playmate would be great but I think she would be fine as an only child if she got enough attention and exercise.

Mimzy is being fostered by Forgotten Friends Mixed Breed Rescue in Austin, Tx. For more information please contact them or email her foster mom at kathy.russell@ni.com.
