Welcome Roo, senior minpin up for adoption

Sweet little Roo was dumped at a shelter with a prolapsed rectum and a mouth full of abscessed teeth.

A rescue was notified of the condition of this sweet minpin and wheels were set in motion. First order of business was to vaccinate and plan for surgery to remove rotten teeth and surgically repair her bottom.

This rescue was not set up for frail wee dogs, so BCFS was contacted to see if we had a spot for a recovering 11 year old minpin. You know we would say yes.

Roo came to our doorstep with only a few teeth and a sore looking bottom. It had only been two weeks since the surgery and she needed some recovery time.

We set up a heated bed for this little girl and she’s so happy to be warm, fed, watered and loved. She certainly is a little button who’s a very easy keeper. She’s house-trained, likes to stay with her people and gets along with other dog / cats.

She’s a bit fragile, so we don’t recommend a home with young children.

Roo would love to find her forever home with loving, patient people who understand her needs. Lots of naps, meals on time and gentle walks.

Could that be you??

  1. Hello, I have a mini dachshund Lucie who is about 12 and also a rescue.
    I do not have a fenced in yard but am very close to a field in which I take Lucie now.
    Also, I have a son who is 12 and with me part time.
    Just curious if I meet any requirements for adoption?
    Have a great day.
