#9931 April (TMNT Mom)

Medium-size, Female, Adult Miniature Pinscher,

Hello My name is April. I am the momma to the TMNT Pups. They all got adopted and in their new homes, so now it's my turn to find my happily ever after.

I'm a small girl at 18 lbs, but because of my background I need a quiet environment to thrive. I came from a backyard breeder and human males scare me. My foster family has been working very hard for me to get over my fears, but I'm just not there yet.

Things my foster Momma tells me:
*I am doing great with potty training and haven't had any accidents since my puppies were really little.
*I'm learning about leashes and will walk pretty well as long as it's not too noisy.
*I am a sweetheart who just needs patience from my future human parent (s) to help me be my best self.
*I like treats, so that helped me become friends with my foster Mom. It could help my future human parents too.
*My crate is my safe space here and I go into it very easily for my foster Mom.
*I will need a home with no cats and no young children.
*No apartments or townhouses. I need a rural living area so I can go at my own pace.

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.
