My name is April and I am a beautiful, 5 year old miniature pincher. Or, you can just call me a little coffee bean as I am known in my foster home! I have a gorgeous deep brown coat that shines in the sunlight. Want to know something super cute about me? My ears! A lot of the time, they tilt halfway over, but sometimes, one stands up! I think that happens when I am feeling extra happy and curious. I have a sad story, but I try not to dwell in the past too much. I was born in and lived the first few years of my life in one of the worst puppy mills in Missouri. My foster mom says, it’s the kind people see on the news that just breaks their hearts. When All About Paws first rescued me, I didn’t want anyone to touch me; I wanted to just hide in my crate or under furniture. But, as it turns out, not all people are scary! My foster mom has even had me get to know a couple of other people besides her, and I feel calmer around them too; especially when they give me yummy things to eat! I will even let my foster mom pet me and when she is determined pick me up! I’ve had about a year of experience living in a human home and I’ve learned a lot. I know how to follow a routine, and I am ok hanging out in a crate during the day while my human is at work. Right now, I use a potty pad; my foster mom says I have great aim! Every now and then I have an accident when I’m moving around the house a lot, but now that I’m starting outside training, thanks to my new, special harness, I think I’ll be able to do better at not having accidents! As far as my potential new home goes, mostly I need a forever family with a lot of patience and love. I might be really nervous at first; so a special room to start in would be good. The kitchen in my foster moms house works great for this; it’s like my own personal den; but I still get to see people moving around and doing things. I also have a crate in there just in case things feel scary, or I just want some “me” time.
As for doggie friends? I love them! In fact, having them around seems to calm me some. I can see how they trust their humans and I can watch them while I am learning. I give my doggie friends kisses, snuggles, and sometimes play a little. I enjoy lying in dog beds, sunshine patches, and couches. I want to be in a home where I can lay on the human couch, so that I can keep learning to trust. If you are wondering about those little humans, the babies and kids? I say, no thanks. I haven’t really experienced them, and I’ve heard they don’t have a lot of patience. Heehee! I’ve come a long way since…you know…and I plan on becoming the best doggie friend I can be! My foster mom says, that when she looks at me, she sees so much love in my eyes. She knows that I am just scared a lot, but I do love my human family and friends!
