Are you looking for a super low-maintenance pup that loves naps and cuddles? Then look no further than Miss Minka! This short and stout lady has proved to be the perfect houseguest on sleepovers with volunteers. She waits patiently to be invited onto the couch where she will happily snooze for hours snuggled next to her human friends. Then 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 and does great left home alone, usually opting to nap in her crate (This girl does a lot of napping). While she prefers spooning with her person at night, she's also content to sleep on her own bed. As long as Minka's close to her people, she's a happy little girl.

But napping isn't her only hobby. Minka also loves the great outdoors and while out on walks, her tail never stops wagging, regularly looking back at her human with that big smile on her face, snorting and snuffling with glee. She'll even stop to get her pot-belly wet in the pond. Then she's ready to get back home and chill with her person.

Are you ready to give this pretty princess a happy forever after? Come meet Minka!
