This dog breaks our hearts. Mimi is our adorable 9 year old pocket pittie, who was surrendered to us by her owners in November 2016. She came into the shelter terrified, and it took her some time to decompress. Mimi was scared when she came in, but now she is just a total goof ball with the people she knows and loves. Once Mimi knows and trusts you, she will allow you to do anything to her -- she is beyond tolerant and sweet with her peeps. Mimi is house trained and crate trained. She loves to kiss, roll around in the grass, play in the yard, cuddle and just hang out. Mimi does take a while to trust you, and is wary of new people so for this reason, she needs a LOCAL adopter. An adopter with the desire to get to know Mimi and come to see her a few times before taking her home. We promise you, it is worth it. Mimi knows the commands "sit", "go to your place" and "lay down". She is selective with dogs and seems to like low key companions. If you have another dog, a meet and greet is required. Mimi is looking for a savvy owner, one who will understand her and appreciate her. If you are interested, please call for more information: 516-785-5220, visit us at: 3320 Beltagh Avenue, Wantagh NY 11793 or email us: adoption@tohmail.org
