Mindi's adoption donation is $225 and she is being fostered in Central Ohio.  She has been spayed, microchipped, received her rabies, distemper/parvo, bivalent canine influenza, and bordetella vaccines, tested negative for heartworms, started on prevention as well as flea prevention.  She has also had a dental. 

This sweet senior girl has had a very tough life before coming into rescue but has remained happy and still enjoying life.  She came to us from the shelter environment due to the numerous medical issues she had.  She lost an eye and we are working hard to help her keep her other eye as it was also compromised.  Our vet believes she was a former breeder mama based on evidence when spayed.  She is doing very well in foster care, enjoying all the doggie beds and other pups in her foster home.  Her potty skills are outstanding, but due to her impaired vision, keeping her on a regular schedule is helpful as she can't always find the door to let you know.  Ms. Mindi has a wonderful and sassy personality, letting you know with her big bark when she wants something.  She is a big eater and takes her eye meds like a champ.  

She has some physical limitations in addition to her vision; limited hearing; and luxating patellas in both hind legs, neither of which seem to be painful, though limits her ability to do stairs.  Due to her small size, 6 lbs., we will be looking for a home where she can be pampered and given the extra attention she so deserves.  Her forever family will require a strong veterinary history and no children under the age of 8.  If you are looking for a senior girl with personality plus, don't miss out on Mindi.

PLEASE NOTE:   If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website (the OFP website is www.ohiofuzzypawz.com), not all information transfers to partner websites in some instances.  If you go to the  individual webpage of our dogs , you will be able to get more information each dog.

Visual breed identification in dogs can be unreliable so, in many cases, we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix.  We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Our Adoption Process

The adoption process has several steps involved. Please review prior to submitting an application. Our adoption process is detailed here:  http://www.ohiofuzzypawz.com/info/adoption

Our volunteers work very diligently to process each application and we try to ensure that we are making the best match possible for each dog.  We do not schedule meetings with dogs until an application has been approved.  It can take up to a few weeks to process an application or as little time as a few days, from the time you submit an application, please be prepared to adopt as we cannot hold dogs.

Special Requirements

Some dogs may have special requirements (for example, medications, a fence) -- if you apply for a dog, please be sure to read over the biography completely to see if there are any special needs and if you're home would be suitable.  If we indicate on the dog's biography that a fence is required, this means your home must have a physical fence.  Other dogs may require a "strong vet reference" which indicates that we are looking for a home that has a documented history of veterinary care with previous pets. 

The first step in our process is to submit an online adoption application at www.ohiofuzzypawz.com/forms.  The application MUST include the personal references and veterinary, grooming, and landlord references (if applicable) and their respective contact information.  If you do not include the references and the contact information, your application will be delayed as it CANNOT be processed.  Once the references have been successfully completed, a home visit is then scheduled when a rescue representative can meet all members of the family or residents of the home.  No application is approved prior to the home visit being done.   At that point, the Directors will discuss any and all applications on a foster dog and make a selection--in many cases, there are multiple applications for each dog, so please be understanding that our only priority is the successful placement of each of our foster dogs.

Out of State Adoptions

We do adopt out of state to outstanding applicants, however, our process requires a home visit, so out of state adoptions can take longer.  We do not ship our dogs, adopters should be prepared to pick up the dog in Central Ohio.
