Beautiful 4-year-old Mimi is looking for a loving forever home where she will be a diva princess. Mimi came into the rescue from a breeding establishment, so she does need at least one confident resident dog in her forever home.
Mimi is a darling; her character is coming through now she is feeling really happy. She loves her Cavalier friends, who have helped her understand what it is to be a much-loved and cared for girl. She can be very nervous when initially meeting new people and going into new situations, her dog friends reassure her that things are not as scary as she thinks. She is a young girl and is becoming playful, which is lovely to see. Mimi enjoys racing around off lead and exploring new places and smells. She loves all other dogs and is at her happiest when she is bouncing around with them or being snuggled in with them.
She is going to need some patience when going for walks as she is only just getting used to being walked on her harness and lead. At the moment she prefers quieter areas where there isn’t too much road noise or too many people around but she is making great progress. She hopefully has a long, full life ahead of her and we would love to find her a home where she will be taken on lovely holidays and days out with an active family.
Mimi is heart clear but sadly does have chiari malformation with pain; she is on inexpensive pain relief, which she will need to remain on for the rest of her life. Since starting her pain relief trial, she has been less head shy and doesn’t mind being handled for things like grooming as much. This can be a progressive condition, but hopefully, pain relief will continue to manage her symptoms well. She has been spayed and had a very extensive dental while in rescue, so she feels much more comfortable. She also suffers from dry eye so is on lifelong treatment for this.
We are looking for an understanding home with patient adopters that will go at her pace. She cannot be rehomed with children under 10 years, she is too nervous and she really wouldn’t be happy around young children.
