Russell's Story...

Russell is a Min Pin mix, weighs about 10 lbs and was born in November, 2010.

Russell is very sweet and is kind of a shy little guy at first. We don't know much about his background but it seems like he was scolded a lot at his first home. He is not hand shy, and is NOT a fear biter, but will start to tremble a little over loud noises. He has been with a few other smaller dogs and loves to play tug a war or push around toys that are bigger than he is. He has been with a few cats and has done well, he is used to being crated and is almost house trained, you just have to watch him, he will go to the door but not bark or come tell you when it's time to go outside. Russell would make a great companion for someone who has time to play with him and build up his confidence.

All of our animals are spayed or neutered, up to date with age appropriate shots, are micro-chipped and come with a 30 day free health insurance. Please email us for an adoption application. Thank You!

Pixie Animal Rescue is run by volunteers. We do not have a facility, so all of our animals are in foster homes. Please give us time to respond to your email. Thank You!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Russell, a Brighton 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 Brighton, or seeking a Miniature Pinscher dog from a breeder in Brighton.

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