Sookie: a Min Pin on a Mission! Adopted!

Sookie’s an island girl now!

Lovable Sookie is probably a Min Pin (Miniature Pinscher) who weighs only seven and a half pounds! She’s three years old, good with other dogs and has done well in her foster home with a small dog and a medium-sized one (you can see her foster brother snoozing quietly in the background).

When she came into Big Heart’s care a couple of months ago, Sookie was suffering from abandonment issues and had probably never seen a leash or eaten a good canine food in her life.

Thanks to the efforts of her current foster home, things have changed for the better! Beautiful Sookie has put on some weight and is feeling a lot less nervous and a lot more secure in herself.  She’s ready for either another foster home where her new people can help her to reach the next level of security, or maybe even her forever home with people who love the beauty, intelligence and energy of this breed and are home most of the time.

Sookie’s mission is to find her perfect person and she has their job description ready to go:

Must be patient (did we say patient? r-e-a-l-l-y patient) because Sookie missed the potty-training thing when she was stuck in the basement in her previous life.  Amazingly, she’s figured everything else out and is really good around the house otherwise.

Best of all, she LOVES her people (though she’s not good at young children).  But Sookie’s perfect person will have to be patient and good-humoured and consistent about reminding her  how the bathroom thing is supposed to be done.

After all, who could resist those wombat ears and that great smile?

If our wombat looks like the foster you’ve been waiting for or the Min Pin you’ve been hoping to adopt, please contact Big Heart at <bigheartrescue@gmail.com>  or fill out an Adoption Application.
