Watson – on trial adoption!



This sleek, regal little guy is Watson, a 16 lb 5 year-old MinPin. He’s funny, in perpetual motion, oozes confidence and enjoys brisk interactive games (fetch the ball, hide and seek). He’s energetic (Watson will sometimes tear through the house for no apparent reason), has a  prancing gait, is assertive and needs enough exercise and activities to keep him busy. He demands cuddling and often must be surgically removed from your lap. He loves comfort, burrows under any blanket and loves to snuggle deep under the covers with you at night. Watson is your typical ‘Min Pin’ – he’s territorial and makes a keen watchdog accompanied by vocal threats towards any stranger coming to the door. Small creatures (squirrels, cats, birds) are chased with determination. When left alone (he’s only been left for 4 hours, beyond that hasn’t been tested), the neighbour has reported that she can hear him bark at the children playing outside and at cats/squirrels strolling into the backyard. Outdoors, he must be kept on a leash (no recall) or in a securely-fenced area at all times. He loves to go for walks but still needs to master leash walking as he thinks he’s Master King Pin. We need a home for him with no other dogs or young children. Not sure about cats. Watson becomes dominant towards dogs, especially larger dogs. Watson is smart and very trainable, learns quickly but has a mind of his own. He is an assertive, strong-willed lap dog and will require a confident owner who can take charge, spend time with him and provide him with some training, cuddles and love. He will love you back unconditionally! ———Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.
