Meet Peggy the Misunderstood Min Pin
Looking for an adopter, foster home pending. 6 years old, 12-15 lbs. Miniature Pinscher / Chihuahua Mix. Good with dogs and kids. Scroll to bottom of this post for contact info.
Meet Peggy! This adorable and sweet girl is a 6 year old 12-15 lb (very obese) Miniature Pinscher mix. Peggy is good with other dogs and is a quiet and happy girl. She is currently on thyroid medication and needs a home who will help her lose weight. Peggy has been in foster care for 5 years and only came into rescue with friends with four paws this year.
Peggy is a special girl and just needs someone who won’t cave with her puppy dog eyes when she wants extra treats. With proper diet, the thyroid medication, exercise, and patience this girl will look and feel so much better. Sadly, people see “overweight,” “on meds,” “6 years old” and think “lazy,” “high maintenance,” and “too old.” Give this girl a chance!
Care of Friends with Four Paws. Located in NYC 9/23.
