Mini loves playing in the yard: she fetches her squeaky toy, plays keep away, tries to keep the yard bug free (although I don't know if she catches many) or just lazes in the shade. She also enjoys exploring and sniffing on multiple daily walks.
Mini is very food motivated (no food aggression), Mini has never met a treat she didn't like. On walks she gets agitated and vocal when she sees another dog. Distracting with treats and praise have calmed her somewhat but she is still quite reactive.
Introductions to other dogs have been hit and miss, some dogs she co-exists with after introduction, some dogs she continues to be agitated and bark. We do not have any other animals or young children in the house, so I don't know how she is with cats or kids.
Mini's ideal placement would have a fenced yard, with grass so she can run around without scraping her hind legs. She prefers to 'go' outside (with assistance) however she is unable to 'hold' it so requires regular diaper changes.
Mini is a smart, sweet young girl with moderate energy who loves attention, belly rubs and back scratches.
