Cuddly, Playful, Active, Loving
GOOD IN A HOME WITH Children who will respect his tiny size.
PREFERS A HOME WITHOUT Cats.
Skinny Roo is an extra cuddly, extra handsome boy who needs some extra special love in his life! This little 5lb. goofball is full of silly energy and is sure to keep you on your toes all day long. His big floppy ears tend to tickle his neck and he’s always shaking his body like he’s trying to shake them off his head. They make the cutest flapping sound. When he’s excited (which is pretty much anytime you’re around) he’ll grunt, groan and mewl with excitement and bounce around like a kangaroo, desperate to jump right into your arms so you can pet his silky soft coat. Skinny Roo takes loyalty to the next level and basically wants you to be as desperate for him as he will be for you. He doesn’t like being left alone, and would do best with a strong, confident leader to make him feel safe and calm. He does well with other dogs if they accept his cuddly nature, but just loves a good chase too much to live with cats. If he is an only dog, he wouldn’t be able to stay home alone too long.
He is extremely smart and knows his commands in both French and English, but needs to be challenged daily.
Skinny needs a reliable bathroom routine and his bladder and bowels are on a strict schedule. He definitely wants to be a good boy and you can help him with that by keeping meals and outings at a regular time every day and frequent outside trips. It is also useful to limit food and water later in the evening. Skinny Roo will climb right into your heart and nestle in for the long haul and is looking for someone who can offer him the same. Skinny Roo is an 8 year old miniature pinscher who loves the car and running free in open fields. He would make a great hiking partner for an active person or family who can include him in their daily adventures. He is great with children and is full of kisses around toddlers and babies but has a long, deep howl for strangers until he knows they’re trustworthy. He must not be dropped, so watching his handling with children is critical at all times. — Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.
