Name: Aunt Minnie
Status: Adoptable
Breed:  Chihuahua
Age: 5 yrs
Sex: Female

Auntie Minnie is a 5yr old female long haired Chihuahua weighing 4 pounds. She use to have long beautiful hair but life as a stray can be grueling & she lost some of her hair due to possibly fleas, breeding & diet which had an effect on her coat. She had been a stray roaming around in a trailer court eating whatever she could find & trying to stay safe. Her coat was beautiful cream & fawn. Now that she is in rescue & getting treated so well her coat will soon return because she is getting good food & treatment for her coat. She will look beautiful again very soon & she will smile like a loved & well cared for dog should. She just loves to snuggle & sleeping in clean burrito bed is so awesome & beats being a stray. She likes nice little dogs. She uses a potty pad if she is not outside. But she likes to go outside too. She is still learning so much. Spayed, heartworm negative & on prevention, current on vaccinations, and microchip. Suggested adoption donation $350-450.
