Mitzi is a sweet, super active pup who needs a home that can give her more time and attention than we can. She is so busy and so active that we feel it is criminal for us to crate her all day while we work.
She was born sometime in February (we think near the 14th) in an Amish horse barn. A family in the Medina area rescued the entire litter of 12 as they feared, due to the lack of supervision, the puppies would get stepped on by one of the horses. This family was desperately trying to rehome the litter as quick as possible because they were weened really, really early and needed a lot of attention. So we helped by taking Mitzi. We had to teach her how to eat and drink from a bowl… that’s how young she was. (Vet guessed she was maybe 5 or 6 weeks old). We crate trained her. She LOVES to sleep in her pet carrier. She sleeps through the night (9pm to 7am) without a problem. She is doing great with potty training. She loves to eat!!! And she enjoys a good chewy bone since she is still teething. We have also trained her to stay off of furniture.
We feel she’d do best in a home where someone was home all day or gone only short periods of time. Right now, we crate her 3-5 hours at a time and leave work to let her out to play. Then crate her again for another 3-4 hours. We have a fully fenced in yard that she loves to run and run and run in. Therefore, we prefer her new home have the same. She currently lives with two other dogs, but they are both old and just like lay around. She wants to play with them, but they are totally uninterested. We think she’d do well in a home where she was the only dog or with another young pup full of the same energy. Our 8 year old niece is over often and she and Mitzi play great together. So we feel she’d do well living with small children.
We use Dr. Hubbard at Greece Animal Hospital as our vet. She is up to date on all her shots. She is not spayed yet as she is too young. She is on their list though to be spayed as soon as they feel she is old enough. Since we don’t know her exact birthday, the vet is using her tooth development to determine her age. We can also provide you the name and number of the groomer we use. While she doesn’t have to, she visits the groomer every 6 weeks for a bath and nail trim.
