A Mimosa is a cocktail composed of equal parts champagne and chilled citrus fruit juice, usually orange juice unless otherwise specified. In spanish, Mimosa means "cuddly".
Mimosa and her doggy friend Bellini were picked up as strays by animal control. Their owners were located but were unwilling to have them spayed per Kansas City, and preferred leaving them homeless at the pound. MPR volunteers met them and were instantly smitten. Both were rescued and are now part of our program.

Mimosa stays in a large kennel at the shelter and is doing very well, though a little impatient for her turn to spend time with the volunteers. She loves to cuddle so much that it’s hard to wait sometimes. She keeps her kennel clean and is not destructive.
Very affectionate though a little unsure of people’s intention at first. As soon as she knows you mean no harm, she is all over you. She is very cuddly and affectionate. Right now a love-session on the couch is more fun than playing but this might change once she has soaked up enough love. She will always be a cuddle-bug for sure.
Mimo’s energy level is medium. She is definitely not a spaz, but she’s not a lazy dog either. She would certainly enjoy going on long walks and would be able to keep up.
Behavior with people:
It’s likely that Mimosa was not very well treated before. It did not affect her loving nature, but she sometimes need a few minutes to realize you don’t mean to hurt her. She then gives her whole heart to everyone without discrimination. She craves affection and does everything she can to win your approval. She’s a real sweetheart.
Behavior with children:
Since Mimosa is a little sensitive, we prefer a home with older, mature and respectful children for this sweetie.
Behavior with other dogs:
She was with another dog when found, but we think she would prefer being an only pet as she craves human attention so much. She would thrive as the only 4-legged princess in the house.
Behavior with other animals:
She is quick, smart, responsive and very eager to please. She is well behaved and has great manners. Mimosa is a charm. Even though she craves loves and is thrilled when someone gives her attention, she is not overly pushy and demanding about it. She’s very polite.
This adorable golden princess is a real gem. Can’t believe someone abandoned such treasure at the pound. Her only value to them must have been as a breeding machine. To someone wanting a “companion” however, Mimosa is a goldmine. Her well-behaved nature, her loving personality, wonderful disposition and cuteness-galore are the perfect combination for an all-around fantastic companion.
