We at PDR believe in the benefits of post-adoption training for our dogs and their families. This allows for continued socialization, learning and helps to create a well-mannered and balanced dog. Post-adoption training is a requirement in our adoption process. For more information on our process and requirements, visit our adoption information page.
All Pound Dog Rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm/lyme tested, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption. The standard adoption donation is $450, and puppies under 5 months of age are $500. The adoption donation is applied to assist in the costs of veterinary care and the overall care of the dog.

Hello everyone, my name is Mimi and I’m a 5 year old, 19 lbs, Jack Russel Terrier/Long Hair Chihuahua and something else (??) with white fur. I’ve been told that I kind of look like a white fox. What can I say? I’m super cute.
When I was born my right back leg didn’t work so well. My old family had me in for surgery and I have a metal plate held in by some screws to help support my leg. But don’t you worry about me, I can out run you any day of the week and twice on Sundays! It really doesn’t slow me down at all. Every once in a while, my right leg can’t seem to keep up with my left so I just hop instead. I take a pill a day of something called Onsior and that helps too. This is available at the vet and doesn’t cost a lot but keeps me from feeling achy in my leg so I need it. My new family will need to ensure that they will be willing and able to keep me on this. I still love going for walks. Me and my FD (Foster Dad) go for a couple walks a day and I love it so much. My favourite part is keeping an eye on all those pesky squirrels, I try to chase them but my FD won’t let me. I don’t dwell on them; I just don’t trust them…a pop on the leash and I’m off again.
My foster home has a cat. For the most part I ignore her but when she runs real fast my instinct is to chase by my FD puts a stop to that pretty quick let me tell you. If she didn’t want to be chased then why is she running huh? I really don’t get along with other dogs either. I just like my people. I haven’t been around many small children but I don’t think I would have a problem with them; they are just smaller people right? So with all that, I must say, I would prefer a home as the only pet. I have more than enough love to give you, promise.
I’ve been in the car a few times and I am totally fine to just lay down in the back till we get where we are going. I also know a few tricks like sit and down. I even know how to shake and high five. My recall could use a little work though, I get easily distracted. This is something we can continue to work on after you take me home and we go to obedience school. It’s part of Pound Dog Rescue’s adoption requirements and I think it’s a great way for us to bond and really get to know each other. I really love the treats when I get it right, it’s a lot of fun.
I am fine to sleep in a crate and to stay in one while you are away. I have been left home for small periods outside of the crate and I just sleep until my FD gets back home. I’m pretty independent that way. I started of by sleeping in the crate but once I showed my FD I was house trained and his slippers were safe he lets me sleep on the foot of his bed. I much prefer that. When we wake up I wait for him to make the first move. When his alarm goes off and he get out of bed then I will get up too. I’m good to wait if he wants to sleep in though.
That’s pretty much all I have to say right now. My FD wanted to say something to you as well.
Hey Everyone, My name is Greg and I am Mimi’s foster dad. Mimi is a cute little white bundle of joy. My daughters call her the “hype man” of dogs because when you come to her all excited then she immediately gets excited and starts to howl and bark in the cutest way possible. She is going to make some luck family very happy by joining them.
