Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Rusty's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Rusty's Story...
Rusty: 1 yr old red male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 8", 7 lb. Fully vetted. Owner give-up.

SRM (Single Red Male) looking for that special someone to love. Would like to find someone that enjoys romantic evenings together snuggled on the couch and who doesn't mind an occasional nibble on the ear lobe. Must like hugs and wet kisses. Must enjoy long walks together in the park, hand and leash.
Looking for someone who has similar interests such as playing with toys, sniffing the ground, and willing to share their ice cream with me. Looking for a long term commitment. If you think you might be that special someone, then apply to this listing, and you might just be the one I have been looking to share my life with.
Notes from foster mom: Rusty had a "ruff" start in life and is fast learning to overcome his fears. An ideal home would be one in which there are no children and someone home most of the time to give him lots of love and attention. Rusty is a sweet boy but takes a while to warm up but once he does, he is a snuggle bug and will love you unconditionally. He is doing well on his house training as long as he is taken out frequently.

Note: Rusty is located in Nashville, TN - and we will not fly this boy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rusty, 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.
