ccording to our 'Meet Your Match Program' Bon-Bon is:
Teacher’s Pet - I’ve got the whole package — smart, four legs, love to learn and live to please. Go ahead, teach me anything. Sit, stay, balance your checkbook, I can do it all. Keep me entertained and I’ll be yours forever. (Externally motivated)
Bon-Bon is young Miniature Pinscher Mix who somehow survived being chained up outside all winter in KY without even shelter. Thankfully she had a friend who was a neighbor who gave her food & water daily & begged the owner to surrender her but they refused until just recently. Thankfully they decided they didn't want her anymore. Her spirit is a testament to her inner strength!
As you can see is just beautiful. Her eyes shine as much as her red coat! Min Pins are not miniature Dobermans -- actually they are a much older breed than the Doberman. Nicknamed the “King of the Toys,” Bon-Bon has proved to have many of the traits of her ancestors. She would prefer to be Queen of your house. Min Pin’s believe they are the center of the universe and expect everyone to cater to their whims –
for that reason she would be do best with older children - 13 years & up since she has shown no interest in children. Bon-Bon has the same traits. She also has a unique high-step manner of walking which can be likened to a prance, and she oozes confidence. She adores her toys, loves to fetch & plays with great abandon!
She loves to cuddle and will find her way to your lap the instant you sit on the couch. She also loves to run & she can run like the wind! I also believe she will make an excellent watchdog and she’ll size up everyone who approaches her kingdom. Bon-Bon can jump almost 4 foot high straight up from a stand-still so she will require a 6’ foot high wood or vinyl fence – no exceptions.
She is extremely intelligent, you can see her thinking --- so she has taken to basic training & walking well on a leash. She will require an experienced parent with dog training skills to keep her on the right track.
Bon-Bon is an alpha female so if she is to be adopted with another dog that dog must be submissive by nature & willing to put up with her bossiness & rough play although she is doing much better!
As with all LnF dogs, they live in a foster home with our family, guaranteed to love people with gentle & sound dispositons, get along well with other dogs, are all fully vetted with all their necessary shots, spayed/neutered, microchipped, tested for Heartworm/Lyme, wormed, crate & house trained.
* It is our opinion that Senior’s Citizens - anyone 62 & up -- should consider adopting senior or more mature dogs. Everyone wants pups & young dogs, but our abandoned mature & senior dogs need families who know they still have lots of love to give & deserve a chance to live out their Golden Years in a loving home.
