Mia is brimming with personality and overflowing with devotion. She is VERY active - ready to be your running buddy or your hiking pal. This little energizer bunny never runs out of go. She is believed to be 2-3 years old and currently weighs about 45 lbs. Everyone who meets her comments that she is much smaller than she looks in pictures. She's a solid 45 pounds, but not a big 45 pounds.
Mia is very smart, trainable, and treat-motivated. She has mastered basic obedience (sit, down, stay) and learned to ring the bells on the foster's doors to let them know she needs to go out. She quickly learned how to use a doggy door and is very respectful of the fence and baby gates. Mia is doing great with leash manners and would likely love the challenge of agility or more training.
Mia loves chew toys and rope toys and anything that squeaks, plus is happy to play fetch or tug, but she's equally happy to snuggle with you on the couch.
Mia gets very excited when she sees new people and recently gave a visiting plumber a tongue bath while he worked. She understands that four-feet-on-the-floor gets her more attention, but sometimes she can't help herself. She is housebroken and crate trained in her foster home. Mia needs plenty of exercise and should not be in a home with cats because she loves to chase small animals.
This sweet girl is ready to find her forever family - she has so much love and devotion to give! To see more pictures and stories of Mama Mia, visit her foster mom's blog, www.AnotherGoodDog.org.
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.
