Mini is an adorable little one-year-old old Chiweenie who 50% of the time has a feisty attitude, and the remainder 50% of the time, is scared of everything and everyone around her.
Her best friend Bella is an eight-year-old Bichpoo, who people often mistake for a stuffed animal (which seems about right because she never leaves her bed).
But both pooches are loved and incredibly spoilt by their owner Julia, who adores being a pet owner.
What does being a pet owner mean to you?
Being a pet owner is very important to me and I’m the type of person to spoil my dogs like crazy by treating them like they’re my children,
It is essentially my priority to make sure that they are healthy and happy at all times and when my dogs are happy, I’m happy!
What made you choose to adopt Mini and Bella?
When we first adopted Bella (the Bichpoo) my family and I wanted an intelligent small lap dog, which is what incited the search.
We searched for what seemed like forever, until one day we came across Bella who was a small, hyperalgesic dog who doesn’t shed, which was exactly what we were looking for.
It was from this day that we knew she would be the perfect addition for our family.
We didn’t really have a choice in the matter of adopting Mini because she was my friend’s dog and because they couldn’t keep her, I decided to take her in for a night.
Eventually we adopted her into our family but at the beginning my mum wouldn’t even allow her into the house, because she was adamant that she didn’t want another dog.
However, after the first few hours of pet sitting Mini, she fell in love with her and within an hour we were visiting PetSmart.
Do Mini and Bella get along?
They do get along really well, and lucky enough, they actually don’t fight either.
But Bella still hasn’t forgiven me for bringing Mini home.
Bella is Mini’s favourite thing on this planet and she treats her like she is her best friend.
But Bella just tolerates her, and its still clear and very evident that Bella is always annoyed by Mini.
Occasionally I catch them cuddling though, which is quite cute.
What made you decide to open up a social media account for your pets?
We find Mini very entertaining and both of my dogs are so adorable, so I decided to open up an account for them, so I can share them with friends and family.
It has also been a great way to keep track of all the photos and videos I have of them.
But I never expected the account to get popular!
What made you choose the names Mini and Bella?
My parents happened to choose the name for both dogs.
They chose the name Bella because it means beautiful in French and Mini had lots of name changes throughout the first year of her life!
We could never decide on a name, but my mum always called her Mini, so eventually it just stuck.
Have you always been a pet owner?
I have had a cat and a few other small critters growing up.
I think I will always be a pet owner, because I don’t know who I would be without pets!
