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.
Rescue Group Info...
Rescued from a dog farm in South Korea in late 2004, Picasso, a red miniature pinscher, truly defines what it means to be a survivor. Thanks to a wonderful rescuer that brought him from South Korea to the U.S., Picasso found his way to his forever home where he made such an impact on his family, that this organization was created to honor him and help min pins in need.
The mission of Picasso’s Place Min Pin Rescue, Inc. is to facilitate the rescue and adoption of stray, abandoned, neglected, abused, and surrendered miniature pinschers and place them into permanent and loving homes.
In the interim, we provide appropriate foster and veterinary care, proper nourishment and of course, plenty of love and attention.
Picasso’s Min Pin Rescue, Inc. services the mid-Atlantic and other states when needed. The availability of financial and volunteer resources will determine how many miniature pinschers and how extended a geographical area can be serviced at any given time. Picasso’s Place Min Pin Rescue’s goal is to provide quality care and placement assistance to as many homeless miniature pinschers possible.
Qualified adoptive families are selected through an application process that is focused on the welfare of the miniature pinscher and the need to place each dog in an environment appropriate for that dog's background, temperament and needs. The needs of the homeless miniature pinschers are the rescue’s primary concern. Obtaining safe, loving, lifelong homes for miniature pinschers is our primary goal.
