She was called "Skinny Minnie" when she first arrived at the shelter. Now Minnie Mouse, Minnie Pearl or Mini Moose fits better!

February 7th 2005
Being rescued! Also: attention, food, dog beds, naps, her brothers. Car rides. Walks.
Being wrapped in metal coathangers. Having to go outside when it's raining, dark or cold.
Anything she can steal from Chester or Mac- especially nylabones!
Anything! She gets Wellness dry food. Also occasional vanilla ice cream and healthy dog biscuits.And stuff she can grab off the street!
Now that she's healthy, she loves to go for walks everywhere.
I asked her to sit once before she ate. Now when she sees me with her food bowl, her butt hits the floor instantly.
She's the last high positive HW dog we got tested in SC. She's a shelter favorite, but there's been no rescue interest in her at all. I can't stand to think of her there, her heart choked with worms, when she could be here & be treated.
Here's what Jen writes about her:
"This is our dear sweet Minnie. The other pic attached shows how emaciated she was when she first arrived at the shelter - but look how good she looks now! When Animal Control found her she was wrapped in metal coat hangers!!! Fortunately they were not very tight so did not cause physical injury. She is a big love and wigglebutt and would love to be rescued! Minnie is very heavy heartworm positive. :( She's sooooo sweet - we think she's actually a Mountain Cur (not a plott hound as originally thought). I know she gets along with other dogs. Do you remember me posting about her when she first came into the shelter? I think it was right before Christmas...She was SOOO skinny but has definitely filled out and put on weight. When I first saw her at the shelter I tried so hard not to cry - I was trying to take her picture and she kept wiggling her little butt at me! LOL"
Jen can get her here on a transport next Sat, 2/10. She'll need to be kept quiet for about 2 months- no dog park, day care or wrestling. Short walks are OK. If she fits in well with Mac & Chester, I plan to keep her permanently. If not, I'll get her healthy & find her an adopter.
It's not so much that I want another dog right now, post-Honey, but I know we can handle 3 & she is going to die if she doesn't get HW treatment. Jen says she's not scared of people, despite what's she's been through.
Update: 3 years later, Minnie is happy and healthy and rules her home with an iron paw! Her brothers adore her and she has an incredibly open, loving spirit. Please adopt- there are fantastic dogs to be found in shelters.
If you can help my buddies back in Mullins, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. They need money to heartworm test their dogs, treat the ones who test positive and give HW prevention to those who are negative. And they need rescues and homes, of course...
I wiggle, therefore I am!
Most interesting physical trait::
She has gorgeous stripes on one side of her body- the other side is mostly brown.
AnimaLimpix 2008 events:
Brother Intimidation, Toy Stealing, Alpha Girrrl Growling, Extreme Napping
Shape she carries her tail in:
A "J" or sometimes a "U", and it never stops wagging
The way she likes to sleep:
On her back with one leg raised, exposing her belly (just in case you might want to rub it!)

Mom went on vacation, went to hospital, is home now and trying to get better. I'm trying to help the silly human- wish me luck.

Now that Mom turned the power back on. For some reason she walked around with a flashlight for 5 days and threw out a whole fridge full of food!
I will never understand humans.
