Charlie's Story...
Charlie is a 1-2 year old male who is neutered, vaccinated and on heartworm prevention. He is 13 inches tall and weighs only 11 pounds now, but was recently treated for tapeworms and should be gaining weight.
Charlie came into rescue with 6 other minpins who were rescued from a pound in a small town in MO. His history is a mystery, but his current disposition is wonderful. He is VERY friendly and responds well to human affection. He likes to snuggle with other dogs and after a few days in his foster home he has decided that curling up next to a human is great as well. He likes to play, has learned the doggie door and patrols the yard for squirrels, falling leaves and other unexpected intruders. He also likes to spend the day looking out the living room window and is easily entertained by what he sees! He appears to be potty trained, however, he and another male dog in my home have "marked" a few times since Charlie's arrival, but this behavior is already less frequent and will hopefully be extinguished after the pecking order is determined. Charlie is extremely affectionate, but does not demand attention and is GREAT with children. He has long legs and likes to stretch them and run around the yard and does well on a leash. Charlie can climb a chain link fence and would need a yard with a vinyl or wooden fence!
This little man is precious and wants to give and receive love!
Note: Charlie is located in St. Louis, MO - and we will not fly this boy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Florissant 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 Florissant 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 Florissant paves the way for another one to be saved.
