7 Years





Fast Facts
  • Happily adopted!!


    Mika was 7-years old when Mary adopted her two years ago. At the time, Mary had an older dog, Zoey. The two got along famously. When Zoey passed away, Mika felt the loss.

    Mika had another pal for a while, a gray tabby named Little! They proved to be best buds right away, even snuggling together. Little passed too, but then a cat named Maisey, came along and now Mika has a new friend!

    Mary says Mika is a sweetheart who has become her shadow and enjoys snuggling by her legs. And those eyes! Mary says her little girl has the most expressive eyes and that she always makes eye contact with her mom. Interestingly Mika always looks up at Mary before she eats her food. Perhaps her way of expressing, “Thanks, mom!”

    This friendly little golden doodle wags her tail and happily greets everyone she meets during her walks.

    She’s not only loved by mom and the grandchildren in the family, but even her groomer has a soft spot for Mika!

    During the day one might find Mika gnawing on a bone with peanut butter inside or snuggling right up close to Mary.
