Hi I'm Minni!
I am a beautiful Hound Mix, about 2 years old, and weigh 40 pounds (I do need to gain a few pounds)!
I took a long ride from West Virginia to start my new journey, and I am settling in after living outside with over 100+ other dogs. I'm a lucky girl that OPH gave me a chance--I have so much love to share, as you can tell from my photos I love to snuggle. I've done great with humans of all sizes so far! Everyone who has met me has said I am so so so so sweet and affectionate!
Since I am getting used to this whole living in a house thing, I am currently working on potty training. I'm also getting used to walking on a leash, it's such a strange thing having something attached to you! I'm also working on crate training and will need someone to show me my crate is my safe place. I go in it, but then my inner hound comes out to let you know I'm not very happy. Hounds.... gotta love em right?!
Speaking of loving Hounds, I can have moments where I am higher energy. I tend to follow my nose like most hunting breeds do. So someone who understands an energetic dog would be fur-tastic!
I can sometimes startle at sudden noises so I'll need to gain some confidence and learn that I no longer need to be scared.
I just absolutely love other doggos and would benefit from having a fur sister or brother in my adoptive home to show me the way! I love to play and have done great in doggy daycare. If you can't find me sleeping in my dog bed, you can probably find me running around the yard!
I'd love to become part of your pack! If you are ready to meet me, fill out an app today!
All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
