Meet Armenia, or as her friends call her, Minnie! Guaranteed to make you smile with her unproportionally large ears, she is just as sweet as she looks. Armenia is a little timid with meeting new people, but once she is comfortable with someone, she wags her tail and greets them with puppy kisses. She enjoys pets on her head and shoulders, and occasionally will roll over for a chest and tummy rub. Currently, she prefers to love you on her own terms and would like to keep her feet on the ground. Armenia does really love being around her people though and will be a great companion on the bed or couch next to you. Armenia is not shy when it comes to other dogs, so if you already have a pup at home that is a big plus! She would do best in a household that has a yard, and one with older teens or adults-only so that her boundaries can be respected.

Armenia enjoys spending time with her dog friends, exploring the backyard, naps, and keeping her people company in a calm environment. She gets nervous with new people and may bark or avoid petting from strangers until she gains more confidence. She has learned to walk well on a leash, and is getting comfortable with car rides. She is still working on being house-trained and prefers to go outside frequently. Be patient if she has an accident, she's trying her best and with some training she'll get there in no time. Armenia does well in a crate, resting in there during the day and sleeping in it overnight. She would prefer it be kept in a small room, preferably with a dog friend for company if possible.

Armenia is such a gentle and good-natured pup when she comes out of her shell. She has a lot of potential to learn and open up if you're kind and patient with her. She will be the sweetest companion to you if you give her a chance, and in return you'll have the cutest lil pup in town!
Come meet your new best friend
