A lot Whippet (a Greyhound in miniature), a little German Pinscher, and perhaps even a bit of Cur, Autumn is heart and soul a Sighthound. Elegant, intelligent, sincere, affectionate, sweet, docile, loyal, and lively, this delightful girl is a well-mannered, extremely gentle dog who will make an excellent family companion for responsible, caring owners. Don’t let it worry you that she’s able to accelerate quickly and is unequaled in speed and agility, she’s no endurance runner and her daily exercise needs are minimal. Leashed walks and plenty of chances to run, chase, and explore in a fenced yard will help to keep her fit and happy. Active and keenly alert outdoors, calm and laid-back indoors, she’s a highly-sensitive dog both physically and mentally, so she will not be able to withstand any rough treatment or harsh corrections (she’s very sensitive to tone). Sometimes impish and always enthusiastic, this wholeheartedly devoted people-pleaser thrives on human companionship. With only a short, sparse coat to protect her from the elements, she also dislikes cold weather intensely and will appreciate a soft, warm bed of her own year-round. Autumn is currently working on her leash skills and good manners training with Monroe SPCA. She’s obedient and quick to please when she knows what’s expected of her. Being young yet, she gets distracted easily, but she redirects just as easily. Her attentiveness will improve with patient leadership, repetition, follow-through, and maturity.

Autumn is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a calm, mostly laid-back to moderately-active lifestyle. As with all of our adoptable dogs, we recommend a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be assessed at the shelter at this time. Sighthound, however, do not typically do well with cats.

Autumn currently resides at the Monroe County Animal Shelter. The shelter is located at 911 South Raisinville Road, Monroe, MI 48161 (just south of the fairgrounds). You can meet her during regular shelter hours; Tuesday through Friday, 11:00 am until 3:30 pm, and Saturday, 11:00 am until 2:30 pm. The shelter is closed Sunday, Monday, and all national holidays.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Autumn - Adoption Pending, a Monroe Whippet/German Pinscher dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Whippet/German Pinscher for sale in Monroe, or seeking a Whippet/German Pinscher dog from a breeder in Monroe.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Monroe 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.
