My name is Merv!
Facts about Merv
- Breed: Miniature Pinscher
- Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
- Age: Adult
- Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
- Sex: Male
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Rescued from a high-kill shelter in California, this California dream is a serious cuddle bug and oh so soft! He is overflowing with that special Min Pin love.
Merv is a lover of blankets and other soft fabrics. He can shift into play mode with very little urging, is eager to play with toys, balls, a game of tug, or a serious round of play with another dog. He gets along very well with all four of his canine foster siblings. We think he would do best in a home without cats unless you are willing to work with him as he is too attentive when he sees one.
He is very gentle, but mouthy. He shows his teeth when playing, but is not aggressive in any way. He plays as rough or gentle as the dog or person he is playing with. Merv does great in a crate during the day. He travels great in the car as well.
He is house broken but needs to be supervised to maintain good potty habits in the first few days especially if living with other dogs. He gets into the groove of a schedule very smoothly. Walks well on a leash but will definitely need obedience training as he has a high level of distractibility level. He needs a
gentle but firm leader to give him good direction but because he is eager to please it should just require consistency and patience.
Please consider this boy for a forever home. You wouldn't regret it. He is a special one.
Merv is estimated to be 3-4 years old, is current on vaccinations, neutered, current on heart worm and flea/tick prevention. Merv is 15 lbs and 15.5" tall.
