Melinda is a beautiful young pup, gentle, mellow and stable. She’d be shy meeting strangers and not comfortable in public places; though she is very cuddly with familiar people both at home and outside. Given time and patience, she’d be the best companion staying at home with family with no young children. She’s very well behaved; no baking or chewing issues, and gets along well with any size of dogs and cats. Please watch her videos and get to know more about this sweet girl!


About Melinda’s rescue:
Melinda and her seven siblings were born by a stray mother at an abandoned shed in the suburb. Soon after they were born, another newborn family of five joined them in the shed. Amazingly the two mothers coordinated in caring for their young ones. Helped with regular feeding by the volunteer, the puppies soon grew up and were able to play together.
Then one day, a big fire broke out in the neighborhood, killed the two adults and several of their puppies. After this tragic accident, the volunteer rescued the surviving six young ones, and Melinda was one of them. Now Melinda is under the adoption program waiting to find a place she can call home. Melinda being a shy pup, need more time for transitioning in new environment. She’s patiently waiting for the loving home where she can call her own.
