Minie's Story

Everything in life is better with a friend!   Minie and Milton agree 100%!  These two are inseparable and spend most of the day curled up together in the same bed!  It is truly one adorable sight! This pair was relinquished to Chicago Animal Care and Control by their owner before coming to PAWS. They are both understandably sad and confused and they are taking great comfort in being together.  Now this duo is looking for the perfect forever family to live the good life with! Milton is a bit shy but warms quickly and wags his tiny tail so much it makes his whole body wiggle.  Minie takes longer to warm up, but once you see her tail wagging your heart will melt!  They just love to be together whether they are playing or napping! They both behave very well on their leashes. Loud noises and sudden movements can startle Minie so this pair would prefer  to walk on quieter streets or perhaps a nice fenced yard to enjoy.  Milton loves a good head scratch and Minie warns to gentle petting in time. At first glance, they may seem to be unlikely friends but watch them together for a short time and you’ll see just how close they are!

Minie and Milton are looking for a quiet, adults-only home with an experienced owner. Minie is very unsure of new people and new environments and needs an owner who can be patient with her as she adjusts, gains confidence, and learns to trust. With patience and Milton by her side, Minie is sure to bloom and share al the love in her little heart with you!  We have seen just how much love she has to give with Milton and he won’t mind if she shares with you too as long as there is some room on a couch cushion for him by your side! Think you are the right home for this canine dynamic duo? Stop by the Lincoln Park Adoption Center and meet them today!
