Scrappy Bear's Story...
(YAWN.....) Oh...Hi! Scrappy Bear here. Sorry. I was indulging in my favorite pastime...napping! YUP. Believe it or not there ARE min pins who enjoy the inactive know...the COUCH POTATO! I am one of them. And I am only 5 years old! Bet you can't guess what my other favorite pastime is....well at least USED to be until I got here to my foster mom's house....

OK...I'll tell was EATING! Bet you NEVER would have But as I said, my foster mom does not allow me to overindulge in that way. She keeps telling me it is for my own know, health reasons and all. I keep trying to convince her but she won't give in...darn it! But actually, I guess it is ok. Since coming here I have learned to be a little more active. Well how can you help it with Charlie running around making you play! (You can read Charlie's story and then you will understand what I mean).

But really, life is getting much better every day. You see, my life was scheduled to come to an end when my prior human family took me to the vet's office to have me "put to sleep". Now I know I said I like to sleep...but I did not mean permanently! I had a broken leg and my skin and fur were in bad shape. I guess my human's didn't have enough money to take care of me so they told the vet to "put me to sleep". Thank goodness for my guardian angel, Kevin. He works at the vet office where I was taken. He made sure that I got all doctored up and made well. They found out that I have thyroid problems. Fortunately, all that means is I have to take a little, inexpensive pill, twice a day. It helps to regulate my metabolism. They also believe I have allergies to a lot of foods. So I get to eat very special food....and it is really good! It is Duck and Oatmeal! He then set out to find a rescue group that would take me in and find me a great home. That is where Friends of Penny comes in.

My foster mom said that my coat is beautiful chocolate brown now, and very shiny and soft. I have already lost 1 pound! I am ready to look for my special furever home. I really like everyone, even kids! I am completely housebroken and crate trained. My foster mom said I am a REALLY good min pin...and VERY sweet. I am neutered, all vaccinated, heartworm negative and on monthly heartworm preventative. I am not a very noisy guy so I will even do well in an apartment.

But my foster mom said that my new furever family has to PROMISE to continue with my regimented diet. And really, I hate to admit it, but she is right. After all, I came close to having my life ended way too soon already. Now I want to do what is best for my health so I can be here for a long time to come.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scrappy Bear, a Greensboro Miniature Pinscher dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Miniature Pinscher for sale in Greensboro, or seeking a Miniature Pinscher dog from a breeder in Greensboro.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Greensboro already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Greensboro breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Miniature Pinscher breeders who help with Miniature Pinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Greensboro paves the way for another one to be saved.
