Blackie's Story...

Good with men/strangers:
Hypoallergenic: no

Additional info: Blackie was part of a hoarding case recently. He's shy but very sweet and cuddly and a little confused. He has subtle brown face marking like a Mini Pin. Blackie has some fear aggression and bit a staff member when he was being removed by crate. At this time we do not recommend him for a home with kids .He would do best in a home with experienced owners only as he is undersocialized and sensitive to touch from being in a hoarder home. Despite his recent hard life he is making good progress. When he first came to us, he wouldn't walk along on the leash and would hide behind people. Now he is walking nicely with much more confidence. He wouldn't allow anyone to pet him at first and would flinch but now he sits on people's laps and comes looking for attention. He is fine left alone and has no separation anxiety. He is fine with other dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Blackie, a Encino Miniature Pinscher/Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Miniature Pinscher/Dachshund for sale in Encino, or seeking a Miniature Pinscher/Dachshund dog from a breeder in Encino.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Encino 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 Encino 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/Dachshund breeders who help with Miniature Pinscher/Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Encino paves the way for another one to be saved.
