I'm Mint, Adopt Me!
Chihuahua / Miniature Pinscher | Adult | Male

Three-year-old Mint is a charming, sensitive companion. He enjoys training and exploring on walks, but can take a bit of time to gain comfort with people. Due to this, Mint will require an adult only home and would do best in a home with a yard, as apartment living would be too overwhelming. It might take some time to become Mint's favorite, but he will make it worth your while. He enjoys playing with his stuffed toys, exploring the landscaping and playing Agility games. Mint is a bit more into doing activities than he is into cuddling, but there's nothing he loves more than a cozy bed. ARF is seeking a patient adopter willing to work with this sensitive dog using reward-based methods and support from our Behavior Staff. ARF will facilitate a meet and greet with Mint's potential adopter prior to finalizing his adoption. Mint has a positive history with other dogs. He currently weighs 15 pounds.Mint's adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor.

Mint's adopter must be at least 18 years old with valid state-issued identification. ARF encourages family members to participate in the adoption process, especially children and family dogs. Please visit ARF's web site for information on adoption and to view more cute canines.
