I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.


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

Oscar Madison is a little dream and so anxious to please you. He was named after the friendly, happy-go-lucky, funny, loveable guy in the Odd Couple. He does not meet a stranger and the groomers always look forward to seeing Oscar when he comes for a visit because he is so happy and friendly. He loves to sit with you, preferably on your lap or right beside you and he LOVES to sleep with you at night. He just wants to be touching you all the time, but he does do okay when left alone for short periods.

He also LOVES to eat. When it is meal time he is VERY excited and does not want to wait his turn. His foster home feeds him in a crate so he does not try to eat another dog’s food after he finishes his own. He does know the sit command and will do so but if there is something exciting happening he just cannot stay for long. He is housetrained, but we never say 100%, however it is close. He can jump over a three foot fence or x-pen. His foster mom will put him back in and tell him to stay and he usually will unless something exciting is happening that he wants to be a part of.

Oscar needs someone that works from home or can take him to work with them. He also needs a very securely fenced yard as he can jump a three foot fence. Your fence must be at least four feet high. He must always be securely harnessed and leashed outside a fenced area and crated or seat belted in the back seat when in a vehicle as he is a flight risk. Oscar will not be placed in a home with young children or large dogs.

Oscar Madison’s birthday is October 9, 2010, so he is young in Affen years. It is not unusual for an Affenpinscher to live 15 years or more if fed high quality, grain free food and they have annual veterinary check-ups. He weighs about 11 lbs, is healthy, up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, heart worm negative and taking preventative. He does not need much grooming as his hair is a little thin on his back from a medication the vet prescribed for him when he was first rescued. Oscar is healthy, happy and loving life now!

He is currently being fostered near Wichita Kansas and we prefer to place him within driving distance. Our rescued dogs may never be shipped in cargo and we do not transport them to adoptive homes. They are never placed in homes with invisible (electric) fencing. Doggy doors are OK as long as they are secured at night and when you are gone. Oscar is small enough to be carried away by a coyote or other predator so should never be outside alone.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

OSCAR - ADOPTION PENDING, a Denver Affenpinscher dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Affenpinscher for sale in Denver, or seeking a Affenpinscher dog from a breeder in Denver.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Denver 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 Denver 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 Affenpinscher breeders who help with Affenpinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
