Duncan's Story...
UPDATE December 2012! See Duncan's cover debut on The Virignia-Maryland Dog Magazine's winter issue available now! See the digital addition at: http://issuu.com/thevirginiadog/docs/vamddogwinter12_web?mode=window&backgroundColor=%23222222

Duncan is a special needs dog. He has a broken elbow that has rehealed and is non-operable. He was surrendered to a high-kill shelter this way. Duncan has undergone extensive physical therapy and is doing great!! He will need physical therapy the rest of his life - about every 4-6 weeks or as recommended by the physical therapist/orthopedist. Each session is approximately $80-120 and his medications are about $50/month. He is on a holistic anti-inflamatory and pain meds (only as needed), and a glucosamine supplement. He will also need to be seen yearly by an orthopedist. Duncan is a very active dog and will need to be kept active in order to avoid arthritis from setting into this leg. He loves to play fetch and is quite good at it. We want him to have a fenced-in yard due to this. He also has about 10-15 minutes of physical therapy exercises that has to be done every day. With all that said, none of this has slowed Duncan down. He is the fastest dog out of all his foster brothers and sisters. He is also a quick study and is eager to learn. He knows sit, wait, shake, high-five and is currently learning stay. Because he is such a people pleaser and eagerly ready to impress, he is easily trained. We are working with him on his leash manners when around other dogs.

Duncan is located in Frederick, MD and can be transported to an approved home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duncan, a Myersville 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 Myersville, or seeking a Miniature Pinscher dog from a breeder in Myersville.

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