Zib's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Zib's Story...
Meet Zib! He's a neutered, male Miniature Pinscher, approximately 3 years old. Found wandering in Bed-Stuy, he was taken in and fostered by a family with another min-pin. Now it's time to find his forever home. Zib is gorgeous, with rare coloring for a min-pin: a fawn red coat, white chest patch, and faint brindle on his back. He's trim and muscular at about 14 lbs with a cute pink nose. Zib is curious and mischievous and loving, equally at home cuddling in bed or zipping around the house. He's a great jumper and isn't shy about investigating tables and counters. Zib loves toys and blankets and tug-of-war. He gets along well with other dogs and cats. Zib is housebroken but doesn't know many other commands. He's not especially food-motivated, but with the right approach, we think he'll be a quick study. If you're looking for a gorgeous small dog with a big personality, Zib is perfect!

Want to adopt a FWFP pup? Fill out our online adoption application by visiting our website:

**Please note that our dogs may be located in foster homes around NJ and the NYC area. It would be a great help to us if you can pick up your dog from transport, which is centrally located from Northern NJ and NYC, or foster home.**

**PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER IN YOUR INQUIRY** We put a lot of time and energy into processing our adoptions to find our babies the best fit home for them. Please do not submit an inquiry if you are not serious about adopting. We are so excited to work with you to find you a new forever friend, and appreciate you working with us. For immediate consideration, please attach your application to the initial inquiry to help us expedite the process.

Our adoption fee is $475. This includes their spay/neuter surgery, full (age appropriate) vaccinations, microchip insertion and registration, deworming, heartworm testing and prevention, flea and tick prevention and travel expenses.

All of our dogs are rescued from local shelters and the general public. Each dog is then placed in a foster home where it is kept for a minimum of 2 weeks for quarantine, to ensure if the dog gets sick it can receive proper treatment. After the 2 week quarantine time they are spayed/neutered and fully vetted. They are then placed on the website. We have foster homes in the NJ/NY area waiting to receive their fosters. Once an animal has received an application or there's an adopter interested in it, we make arrangements with the waiting foster to pick the animal up from the airport to then meet with the potential adopter. Thank you in advance for your patience with our process and for making adoption YOUR option!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zib, a Astoria 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 Astoria, or seeking a Miniature Pinscher dog from a breeder in Astoria.

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