About Minerva (Minnie)

Minnie is a very cuddly little dog. She loves to snuggle in the mornings after she has eaten her food. She doesn't require much exercise, but she does enjoy walks as long as it isn't too cold outside. She loves to play with her toys inside the house, but her favorite thing to do is sit on someone's lap. She does best when people are around, and I try not to leave her alone for more than 3-4 hours at a time, even if it means just stopping home for 10 minutes during a work day. She's very exictable, and she loves to crawl under blankets and inside sweatshirts to keep warm. She scares easily upon meeting new people, especially if they are standing and she is on the ground, but as soon as they sit down, she'll come hang out on their lap and they'll have a new best friend!

  • Sex: Female
  • Age: 6 years, 11 mo. old
  • Weight: 5 lbs
  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Tracking Chip: No
  • Spayed: Yes
  • House Trained: Yes
    I am currently working on training her to use puppy pads, as she does not like to go outside when it is cold. She doesn't always use them, and does occasionally pee or poop in the house, but not if she is taken outside enough.
  • Gets along with children: Yes
  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    She does get afraid around large (40 pounds +) dogs, and she will growl around them if they get too close to her face, but if she is around a dog for more than a few hours, she becomes more comfortable.
  • Gets along with cats: Yes
    She tends to avoid the cats at my home and she's a bit afraid of them, but if they don't bother her, she won't bother them.
