– THIS DOG IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT LESLIE AT EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION –
My husband got a job with the State Dept so we are moving overseas late May/early June…I’m looking for a home for my dog, Hietzing as soon as possible to make sure it is a good fit. She is an older (11 or 12), stocky mini pin (20 lbs). She loves her family and ignores cats and other dogs (if they ignore her). She will sleep in your bed if you say it’s ok and will curl up next to you on the couch.
We got her six years ago from the Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals, and she’s been a great addition to our family. Because we are moving overseas, we think she will not do well. She is quite the homebody and does not like riding in cars and travelling to new places. Due to the entire bag of grapes she ate in 2012, she has developed anxiety and some bladder problems. When we leave her at home for long periods of time, we put a doggie diaper on her because she seems to be unable to hold her pee for long period of time (overnight she is fine).
We think she would be perfect company for an older person who doesn’t travel a lot or a person who works from home. We currently walk her two (10 minute) walks per day and put her out for a pee when she stands by the door.
She doesn’t really bark, but will do so when a person comes to the door or if she sees a dog in the window.
We really want to find someone who will love her as much as we do.
