Are you looking for an easy-going, super low-maintenance dog that loves naps and cuddles? Well look no further than Miss Minka! This short and stout lady has proved to be the perfect sleepover companion. When volunteers take her into her home, she waits patiently to be invited onto the couch, where she can snooze for hours right next to her human friend. When it's time to go potty, she'll saunter over to the door and let you know that it's time to go.

Being the proper princess that she is, Minka has no interest in chewing up anything in the home. In fact, her sleepover friend reported that she was totally content while home alone and even slept happily in the crate. When it's night-night time, she wants to spoon with her human, but she's also happy to sleep on her princess bed. As long as she's close to her human, she's a happy little girl.

But napping isn't her only hobby. She also loves the great outdoors. While walking the ball fields, her tail never stops wagging and she often looks back at her human companion with a big ol' smile on her face. It's pretty darn cute, especially when she's snorting and snuffling with glee. This outdoorsy girl will even stop to get her pot-belly wet in the pond.

So what do you say? Are you ready to give this pretty princess a happy forever after? We have no doubt she'll make her forever family very happy!
