Trooper's Story...
Trooper: 8-9 yr old black & rust male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 11", 10 lb. Rescued from shelter.
We're so glad we rescued this sweet boy in time! Trooper is quite a survivor. We don't know what all has happened to him so far in his little life, but we'll make sure the rest of it is full of love and snuggles. Trooper was found by some good Samaritans and taken to the shelter. He had been abandoned after his owners moved.
Trooper has just three legs, but this doesn't stop him from getting around just fine. He romps and plays chase with the other dogs and loves tummy rubs. He sometimes needs help to get up on the couch but once he does, he's the perfect snuggle buddy. He has the sweetest temperament. He's house trained and crate trained - a perfect gentleman. He's a little shadow and will follow you around wherever you go. As soon as you bend down to pet him, his little nubbin tail wags a hundred miles an hour. Trooper is estimated to be 8-9 years old, but you wouldn't know it! He doesn't have a single grey fur on him and runs and plays like a puppy.
Trooper is good with strangers both human and canine, but we're not sure about cats yet. Trooper would do best in a home with no small children, as he could easily be accidentally injured. He would also do best in a home where he wouldn't be required to climb up and down stairs. Sometimes he loses his footing on hardwood floors and tile, so a home with carpet would be ideal.
Trooper is a wonderful, loving little guy who deserves a home that's as special as he is. Is that home yours?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Trooper, a Nashville 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 Nashville, or seeking a Miniature Pinscher dog from a breeder in Nashville.

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