Arthur

A Male Miniature Pinscher-x presently Adopted

Arthur is my name and I am in search of an experienced family who is looking for a dog with smarts.  I try very hard to always be on my best behaviour but every now and then I get myself into trouble.  You see I protect my prized possessions a little too much – be it a ball, a napkin, or even a dirty sock.  If it’s in my mouth, I don’t want anyone getting between me and my “treasure”.  Although my previous family cared for me and were sad to see me go, they were not comfortable with my behaviour around children.  Now, resource guarding is common in a lot of dogs and the good news is that with proper training, using positive reinforcement, we can both learn how to manage it.  I would excel at obedience training; I’m very clever and enjoy putting my brain to good use.  I learn new things very quickly and with a family who is supportive, consistent and loving, I know that I can achieve success in overcoming any small problem.  I am very athletic and would enjoy nothing more than to participate in dog sports, frisbee, or just retrieving a ball.  My dream family must be active, patient, gentle and balance outdoor adventures with plenty of snuggling time.  In addition, I am a handsome dog who has an easy-care coat – no fussing over knots or matts.  My size is perfect – not too big, not too small – easy-to-handle medium size.  To the new people in my life, I will offer you my own brand of love and devotion.  All I ask in return is that you accept me as a valued family member for the rest of my life.  Sounds like a deal to me.  Please fill in the Adoption Form and ask for Arthur.

 

You will be contacted for an interview only if you meet all the criteria and could potentially be a suitable match. Animatch does retain applications for two months and you could be contacted within that period for another dog or puppy.  There is no need to complete more than one application.  Please understand that every decision Animatch makes is with the dog’s best interest in mind.

Am I ready for a dog?

Adopting a dog is a life-changing event--or should be. A dog needs lots of time and attention and you've got to be there every day to give it. So, BEFORE filling out the Animatch adoption form, find out whether you're ready for a dog, or would be happier with a goldfish instead: Fill this great questionnaire now to find out if you are ready for a dog.
