My Story

Everyone welcome Minnie!! Minnie is a super sweet 10 year old female Maltese mix that was rescued out of  Inland Valley Animal Shelter with a host of problems.  She had a potato sized mammary tumor which was removed (including the entire string) as well as really bad dental disease (she had a dental) and spay.  Once healed, we will had her taken back to our vet for x-rays (as she has a slight limp we are concerned about) and it was determined that she has a congenital defect that cannot be fixed.  No matter, as Minnie gets about just fine.  Minnie is what we would consider a perfect purse dog.  She loves to be carried and loved, and at only 5 pounds, she makes it easy.  She is all people and dog friendly and just a loving little gal.  She would love a home that will dote on her for the rest of her days as this is what she deserves.  Her first 10 years of her life, didn’t appear to be the best.   Minnie has been spayed, had surgery to remove mammary tumors as well as an extreme dental, is up to date on vaccinations and is also microchipped.  She will likely be on heart meds forever as she has a murmur but it doesn’t slow her down and she is a good girl about taking her meds.  If interested in meeting or adopting this sweet senior girl, please go to www.lolr.org and fill out an adoption application.
