Tad (watch me do some awesome tricks on YouTube!) was rescued on 3/3/09. He was adopted in June, 2009, but was returned because his adoptive home could not give him the attention he deserved. On 11/1/12, he had to have most of his tail amputated due to an accident with a car door, but he is recovered now.
Tad is smart, friendly, curious, loyal, and he lives up to the Miniature Pinscher’s reputation as the “king of toys”. He is nervous of change but settles to a routine. He would be happy lying next to you on the couch or proudly prancing in front of you on a walk. Like all dogs, he needs daily exercise but is not a high energy dog. He loves treats, is eager to learn new tricks and is quite the jumper.
Tad was transferred to a new foster home in April, 2013, where he is being called Dobie. The new foster home reports that Dobie adapts to new situations with ease. He is polite, playful, comfortable in a crate, goes potty outside, and is a good alarm barker. He has learned a few new tricks, and his foster is working on his anxiety issues while riding in a car. Dobie would like to be your new best friend in a quiet adult home.
