    Hello! I am Miranda, a seven-year-old fuddy-duddy with a heart of pure gold. My favourite thing is relaxing close to my family, on my bed, or just any bare spot of floor. I love treats, walks, cuddles, and being as close to my family as possible!

    Miranda steals the heart of anyone who interacts with her. She is shy at first, but when plied with love and treats, she will warm up to anyone. She is especially fond of food, and will eat everything in sight, so make sure to protect your dinner!
    She has some anxious behaviours which are being managed with a combination of behaviour training and medication, which has improved her attitude significantly. A lot of her anxiety is in being left alone, and she does have a little separation anxiety, which is being worked out through behavioural enrichment and practice. She is very nervous when in a car, but loves walks and outside time.
    Miranda has had some dental adventures and is missing 23 of her teeth! She still munches away on her food, and doesn’t seem to be bothered at all by her missing biters.
    Miranda also has a bit of arthritis, which makes her a little achey when she’s been lying down a lot. A little stretching goes a long way and then she’s ready to go.
    Miranda’s big feature is her love. She has made everyone she’s met with fall madly in love with her, and will not rest until she has charmed the world with her soft demeanour and sweet toothless grin.

    Let me fall in love with you!

      Miranda has anxiety that is managed partially through medication, and partially through behaviour training. She is also missing most of her teeth, and has a bit of arthritis which causes her some achy-ness.
