Ringo's Story...
~adoption fee applies email

My name is Ringo!
Well that is what it is now that I am with CAA Rescue! See I was found stray running the streets of Montreal and a kind person caught me (finally) and brought me to the SPCA where I waited for 11 days but no one ever came to claim me and no one ever called looking for me.
CAA Rescue was contacted to help me and they said yes!!! So now I find myself in foster care with them

I show absolutely zero (…actually negative zero infinity; if that is possible) signs of aggression!
While it is obvious I have never ever been around dogs in a playful and social manner I am learning really fast from my bigger and older foster bro the does and don’ts of being a doggie. I follow him around everywhere and have really and almost immediately attached myself to him – I think sometimes he gets annoyed with me because he growls at me. I do back off and leave him alone for about 30 seconds and then I am right back at it!

It is obvious that I was never walked on a leash because my foster mummy put one on me right away and within 2.5 seconds the leash was wrapped around my body and one of my legs …… eeeeeeshhhhhh so very confusing this silly leash apparatus thingy! But foster mummy says that is ok and in time I will learn all about it for now just baby steps as each day in foster care I am learning a little more

I know no basic commands or if I do it is not in any language my foster mummy knows! I am working on “sit” now and I am not sure I really get the point of it but with enough encouragement I do, do it especially when I am waiting for breakfast or dinner – then I am more than happy to sit!

I show no signs of food aggression whatsoever but my problem is I gobble up all my food and then like to travel to other doggie bowls, other doggies do not like that so much. They are all very respectful of each other and their bowls in foster care … it is something I do have to learn.

I have no toy possession in fact right now I have no use or need or understanding of what a toy is. I watch my foster bro playing and chasing a ball but I have no interest in the ball but I do just follow him back and forth and back and forth
I am absolutely clean in the home; no accidents whatsoever and prefer to do my business in the back yard. Since I have not figured out leash walking I have not done any business on the leash so for this reason right now I need a home with a back yard.

I do also live with cats in foster care but I just walk right by them like they are not even there
I am a miniature pinscher and these breeds are known to be pretty active so I think it would be nice if my new family did activities with me like continue leash raining, obedience school or even maybe agility training. I think I could do really well with stuff like that at some point and time. Right now though I am just learning basic 101 of LIFE in a HOME and that is a whole lot of learning I have to do because all of this does seem very new to me

I do have to tell you now though that I have a grade 5 heart murmur - A heart murmur is simply a vibration of the heart caused by abnormal blood flow in the heart. And while no one knows what my life was like before or how long I lived like this we will see if the murmur can be downgraded now that I am in foster care with a healthy diet and comfy bed to make me happy and healthy with absolutely zero stress in my life. There are many, many, many reasons for heart murmur one is birth defect but only time will tell. And while my grade is listed as 5 I show no signs of any anything! Which is totally confusing foster mummy, no coughing, my energy is min pin awesomesauce, no excessive panting, my appetite rocks sooooooo we will just have to wait and see how I change over time

I have not been left alone for extended periods of time so not sure how I would react being alone but I am not a big barker (at least not yet in foster care) and I don’t seem to be possessed by any belongings in the home either
I am a totally handsome man weighing in at 12lbs a perfect size of awesome doggie goodness! With my one ear up and one ear half down I forever look like I am in an inquisitive mode of deep pondering thoughts of the universe or debating when you might give me another liver treat!
I am a hardy little fellow as no one really can figure out what my life was like before coming into rescue – my foster mum says I am so very courageous, not a nervous or scared guy but not a dominating or possessive one either… I am somewhere safely tucked in the middle… a brave little man ready to discover everything life has to show me!

I show absolutely no signs of small dog syndrome; I was never babied or pampered or wore cute outfits carried around in a purse. That is very obvious to my foster mummy! Whatever my life was I did not have much human contact while not scared of humans (not men or women) I am not particularly attached to my foster family either. Don’t get me wrong; they are nice and all but I really hardly notice if they come and go during the day. Foster mama says that will change when I find my true blue best friend for life!

But my breed is a super smart breed; one of the best around if you ask me so I think I will adapt and learn real fast with someone who was actually dedicated to showing me a life. A REAL LIFE! One filled with love and exercise and attention and good healthy diet … if you do not know about the Miniature Pinscher Breed please google it and see for yourself just how amazing we are!

If you are looking for a best friend and promise to always love me; if you are reading my story and know that it is me that is missing in your life and that I am the one that can make your heart complete please email and ask them for an application for adoption. It is a few questions and it will take no longer than 20 minutes to complete but once you do that we can meet… maybe go for a stroll together to see if we can be best friends for life

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ringo, a Pierrefonds 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 Pierrefonds, or seeking a Miniature Pinscher dog from a breeder in Pierrefonds.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pierrefonds 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 Pierrefonds 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 Pierrefonds paves the way for another one to be saved.
