Tater Tot's Story...
Tater was abandoned at a PetSmart in the east valley, left alone waiting for the staff of PetSmart to come to work.
Tater is a 7 to 9 month old smart and handsome red head with a stand up and a flopped over ear! Tater has fine, short hair, natural ears and a sleek face with beautiful eyes. He will need an active home with patient humans and another energetic dog (or 2 or 3) and an on the go family that will include him in their hikes, camping, swimming, running and other activities. Tater is very curious and has no sense of fear – willing to check out anything that interests him or moves – and some things that don’t move!
Do you need a little energy in your life? Tater is your best friend. Affectionate and “out-going” he learns quickly and unlike many small dogs he loves to play with everyone. He has boundless energy and would be great at agility! A little training and he’d be a top notch competitor. I would highly recommend an active family or couple that can help keep Tater involved and busy.
Tater is tall and handsome - about 13 inches tall and 11 pounds with natural ears and a docked tail. A lean and lanky guy, Tater is crate trained, enjoys belly rubs, is not very vocal and loves being with his humans and being loved. Tater and his new family will need to focus on Tater learning basic manners to ensure he becomes the well-behaved little guy we know he can be so he doesn’t drive his new family crazy with all that boundless energy.
Tater will be neutered, up to date on shots, micro chipped, heartworm tested and on monthly heartworm preventative. Tater sometimes knows basic commands, he rides well, is kennel trained, gets along well with most other dogs and humans and loves adventures. Tater says “Hello” and hopes to meet you soon.
If you would like Tater to join your family, please go to and fill out an Adoption Application (under Online Forms).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tater Tot, a Phoenix Miniature Pinscher puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Miniature Pinscher for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a Miniature Pinscher puppy from a breeder in Phoenix.

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