Estimated to be between 1-2 years of age, Danny was turned into a shelter in Kentucky by his family who no longer wanted him. He came in with severe damage to his right front paw. According to the veterinarian, it looks has though Danny got his foot caught in a trap, or was caught and dragged, causing his nails/toes to be sheered off down to the bone, as well as sustaining superficial damage to his chest. Having no nails causes Danny to run with one foot up in the air. It does not slow him down at all! The good news is the vet is confident that the nails will grow back, and after three months, they are showing signs of growing! The vet estimates Danny should be good as new in about a year! Until they heal, Danny will have to have his nail growth monitored to make sure they come in correctly.
Danny can become aggressive with other dogs in the home due to his insecurity about his place in the pack so he would do best in a single dog household or in a household with a larger, laid back female. Danny had very little socialization with other dogs or people so he is very shy and nervous in new situations. Due to that and his nervous aggression, Danny would be required to attend training classes. Danny is very submissive and sensitive with people, so positive/clicker training would be better. He prefers to have all the attention and will be right next to you no matter where you go. He seems to prefer women but, he will snuggle up with my husband on the couch when I am not available to sit on.
He is house trained and crate trained. He sleeps in the bed at night, and can hold it in his crate for 10 hours while you are gone during the day. He is somewhat high energy when he first gets out of the crate, so a home that has a fence or a person that wouldn't mind taking him for a long walk after work would be great. Danny is afraid of cats and very small children. New situations make him shy, due him his previous family not socializing him so his new family will have to be patient and show him that the world is not scary, and new situations can be fun.
Danny is a large minpin, weighing in at 18lbs and standing 15" at the shoulder. Due to his size, he would be great at agility, rally, or even going on long walks/hikes, after his foot has healed completely.
Danny is up to date on all shots, on flea/tick, and heartworm medication. He is also microchipped.
