“Hi, I’m Mattie!”

Mattie is a 12 year old Shih Tzu who would do best on her own in a home. Her last owner died and ideally she would find someone who is home more often. Her favorite activity is eating, but with previous kidney stones she has to have special food and takes medication the first 6 days of the month. She’s potty trained and has only had an accident in the house when the snow was too deep outside. She doesn’t play with toys, but is an excellent lap warmer, gives lots of kisses and enjoys short walks.

My adoption fee, including MN state taxes, is $214.55. I’m available to adopt within a 50 mile radius of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/Saint Paul.
