Estimated Birthday January 1996
The shelter says she was found as a stray in Valencia County. More likely she was put out because she wasn’t able to be used for breeding any more.
Her foster dad says, “She is up to four pounds now from the three-and-a-half pounds when I got her into foster. You can’t count her ribs from across the room as you could then. I’ve been feeding her high-calorie soft food three times a day but I’ve come to believe she’s just a naturally think old girl. She doesn’t like cats and has a high pitched woo-woo-woo to let them know that.
When she wants to be picked up she turns around and sits on her left hip. If you don’t notice her, she’ll give you a little “wuff” to get your attention. She gets along fine with the other old girls in the gang. Her main activities are eating and sleeping and looking for somewhere else to sleep some more. Laps and under the covers are favorite locations.
She doesn’t like outside. Since I expect she was picked up old, alone, cold, afraid, hungry and with teeth so bad they were literally falling out of her mouth, I think she finds her “three hots and a cot” current situation to be a pretty good deal.
ADOPTION FEE $150
Minerva is one of several elderly dogs that are in foster care. However, most of our foster homes have multiple pets and our little guys have to share with other, younger pets. We are always looking for retirement homes that have older dogs and are interested in giving a senior a loving place for their final years.
