The truth about Minnie
She’s available for adoption.
Although she was the first wayward dog Zach and I ever encountered as a couple, I have never shared her story on this blog. We found her, cowering on the Trolley Track Trail and covered in mud in almost the same spot we would later find Charlie Machete.
Craigslist led us to an individual who had been trying to sell her and who was not very ambitious about getting her back. So Minnie stayed with us.
Having never fostered before, we were uncertain about what to do with this beautiful, sheepish creature with strange eyes.
I got caught up in the excitement of having another girl in the house and didn’t follow through on the initial interest Minnie received from totally decent people. That was an epic fail on my part, and I admit it.
And so, the months ticked by.
Minnie put a spell on us.
We fell in love with her. Luke fell in love with her. Then, Charlie Machete came along, and he fell in love with her.
She’s very lovable.
Because Charlie Machete was a harder-to-adopt (and, for us, harder to live with) dog, when he was with us, we kept the foster dog marketing emphasis on him, while quietly exploring potential forever families for Minnie.
Playful but not destructive and affectionate yet independent, Minnie is about the easiest dog in the world to live with. She’s obedient, housetrained and loves going on walks and rides in the car. She would do great in a home with children and gets along fine with other animals.
Today, marks the beginning of Minnie marketing in earnest.
