Kimmie was found as a stray in New York City, but it was clearly obvious she had been someone’s well-loved baby. The busy, noisy city shelter was no place for sweet little Kimmie, and fortunately Col. Potter Cairn Rescue stepped up to give her a chance at a forever home.Weighing in at about eleven pounds and judged to be about seven years old, Kimmie is part Silky Terrier, part Yorkie, and part Pomeranian. She has a soft coat and a cute curly tale like her Pom ancestors. Not big on toys, Kimmie loves people and loves to cuddle. She has been in a foster home with Bonnie who says she walks well on a leash, is not aggressive, and sleeps in her crate at night. In fact, one of the cutest things she does is to slither out of her crate every morning and roll over for a tummy rub. When she came to Bonnie this past November, she would not permit her feet to be touched. Now, Bonnie is able to handle her feet and trim her nails.
Although Kimmie generally likes other dogs, even large breeds, she was attacked in a dog park several months ago and is still a bit nervous. She has been checked by a vet and did have a benign tumor removed. She also has a slight narrowing of her trachea so she needs to wear a harness rather than a collar. Currently, Bonnie is feeding Kimmie Vignature catfish food by Kangaroo as well as the occasional blueberry which Bonnie says Kimmie and her own dogs love.
Kimmie would like to be a spoiled princess and an only dog so that she has full control of her person’s lap and attention. A family with older children who would know how to cuddle and love her and with at least one family member at home most of the time to give Kimmie the attention she craves would be a good home for this little bundle of love. However, a fenced-in yard is not needed as she enjoys walks, so she would need someone who would enjoy walking with her. And, of course, a stash of blueberries.
