Northfield, Massachusetts. Nine is Divine! It means that at 9 years old, I'm perky, happy, and love to go for walks. But then, I chill and take nice long naps. My foster mom says I checked out fine at the vet & am ready for a fur-ever home. Woo hoo! The ideal adopter knows how to go slow and doesn’t have small, active children. I am blind in one eye so quick movements around my head are confusing. If you're in a rush and open the door quickly, I might bump my head. It takes me a little while to warm up but then I'm your best friend, your companion. Your sidekick! I want more walking and playtime than with my original family. Too much alone time makes me chew on my tail sometimes. I whine for a few minutes when you leave me alone but then I settle in and take a nice, long nap. I'm incredibly house-broken but enjoy 3 good potty breaks plus a nice walk. Around the block here in Western Massachusetts is a couple of miles so I like to walk briskly alternating with sniff & piddle for 30-40 minutes. I'm currently 23 lbs, a few lbs over what I should be. My foster mom thinks good food, play, and exercise will take care of that. I don't have a lot of experience with other dogs but I'm well-behaved when I meet them. Mostly I ignore them, especially the boisterous youngster types. I also met a cat and was very curious but the cat hissed & jumped out of the way when I leaned in for a good, long sniff. Do you need a sidekick? Are you a good pet parent? Do you have a great vet like who can check my weight, lumps & bumps, and eyes & ears each year? Then, ask my foster mom about meeting me. Minnie is up to date on shots, spayed, microchipped, housebroken and all ready to meet you! Please consider adopting this sweet senior girl!
