Tyrion #16 - 5.jpg

Tyrion #16 

Tyrion came into MNBR very fearful. His foster mom put a lot of time and energy into training him to become a great pet. He has progressed to the point where we feel he is ready to be adopted. Keeping in mind he will always be a shy dog, he will need someone who will give him time to adjust to new things. He loves people, actively seeks out attention. His "warming up" period is getting much shorter. He plays, bounces, barks and acts like a normal, happy dog. He's around 3 years old. Stands quiet for brushing and nail trims. He does have a slight twist in his front leg, so it’s important he’s on joint supplements.


Gilly #25 **medical hold**

3/5/18 Update: Hey everyone, great news - all of my lumps and bumps are benign! But the doctor still wants to remove two of them, and I still have that teeth cleaning to endure. So I'm still not ready for my forever home, but I will be! My eye infection and upper respiratory infection are clearing up. I had a bath and I'm feeling pretty perky these days. I have been to two "meet and greet" events with the rescue and I'm still shy, but I'm getting braver and braver meeting new dogs and new people. I just know one of these people will be my forever mom or dad! I went to something called a photo shoot yesterday and it was fun, I got lots of cookies and attention. Watch for my new pics to be posted. Keep checking back and I will have lots more to say!

Hello Everyone! My name is Gilly. I'm estimated to be around 11yrs old and I weigh 47lbs. My family adopted me 10 years ago in Missouri, but then decided they couldn't care for me anymore so they dropped me back at the shelter. Some very nice people brought me to Minnesota (it’s cold here!) and now I have a foster mom and a foster brother, a 10 year old basset hound. We like snoozing and taking it easy and just hanging out being old men together. We don’t play but we wag our tails when we see each other. I’m not food aggressive, toy aggressive, or any kind of aggressive. I don’t even know what the word means! I like to go on walks and car rides. I’m getting up there in years but I still get around just fine. I picked out my own spot on the rug and I’m quite loyal to it. I’m house-broken and I’m fine resting on the floor, but if you want to lift me onto the couch, I won’t complain about it! I don't even need to be kenneled when foster mom leaves. The doctors wants to check out some bumps and lumps on me, and clean my teeth. I’m also getting over a respiratory infection and an eye infection, so I’m not quite ready for my forever home just yet. But my foster mom will keep you updated on everything, so check back in to see how I’m doing!

Spruce **Medical Hold**

Spruce is around 3-4 years old and 22 pounds. We think he is a Dachshund/Beagle Mix (red like a dachshund, markings like a beagle, dachshund feet, beagle voice). Might have some other breeds mixed in. Spruce is being treated for Lyme's and another tick born disease.  He has cataracts which we will learn more about soon after his doctors appt. It looks like he had a crushed pelvis that had healed without being treated so had surgery to remove femur head so he is now more mobile. He may need some physical therapy. We are not sure how he does with cats or kids but is great with other dogs.  He is very easy going and mellow. He has a beagle howl, not it's not too loud. We are still learning about Spruce and will continue to update!
