Rocky is about a year old. Found as a stray who had not eaten much in weeks. They took him to the animal shelter in hopes that his family would be looking for him. When the family did not go in to the shelter to claim him, we were asked to find him the home that he needs and deserves.
Being thin is not because he isn't interested in food. He is a very good eater. Has yet to turn down a meal. That being said, he is also very active, so he burns a lot of calories. He is very tall for a Miniature Pinscher, being more the size of the Manchester Terrier.
He loves people and is very affectionate. We have not had him around young kids, but feel that he would do wonderful with teenagers who truly enjoy having a dog around for companionship. We picture him becoming their best friend.
Rocky will enjoy walks on the leash, car rides, hiking and camping. He probably would even enjoy jogging. A great option for a person looking for an agile type dog in a smaller body.
He does great with other dogs and could live with others or as an only dog.
