Minnie came to us when her owner died and left 4 dogs and 15 cats. She is a 7 year old Chihuahua or maybe Rat Terrier mix who arrived a whopping 30 pounds!! (See picture 3, her before photo.) She is a petite framed girl, just was massively obese from being overfed and rarely getting out of the confines of her crowded house. Pictures 1 and 2 and her video were taken after her weight loss. She did great with her weight loss diet and increased activity and is now down to 14 pounds, a much better weight for this little girl. She is even enjoying carrots for snacks to help keep calories down. Like all the dogs from this household, Minnie is very sweet, just was so fat that she could barely move and express herself. She is now ambling around the play yard, tail wagging happily, watching us with bright eyes.She seems to have had multiple litters before and she came to us with skin sores, a minor skin infection and a huge dangling growth (it was totally benign) on a hind leg. We had the growth removed and she loves her new freedom. Her sores have mostly healed and she looks so much better. Despite everything, she has a peaceful and kind nature and just accepts whatever happens. She is not used to having good things in her life and is really perking up at the nice changes in her life. She loves to be loved now! Minnie truly is a sweetheart and deserves a much better life than she had in the past, that is for sure! She is much more mobile now that she is not overweight, but her legs are a bit deformed and she will always appreciate gentle walks and hanging out in the sunshine (loves that). She should be an easy keeper if you have an easy going lifestyle and do not want an active dog. Of course, she needs to watch her figure and balance food intake and activity so that she never gains weight again. She should be fine in a home with other dogs or cats since that is what she is used to. She could also be an only dog if you would like. Please give this gentle little girl a chance! She is quickly becoming one of our favorite pups, such a darling girl. Adoption donation $125. Surfing petfinder?
