Miniature Pinscher


Update 1-30-2022
Izzy is doing fantastic since her surgery and is all ready to go to her adoptive home!
She continues to make her foster mom laugh every day because of her cute antics.  She works really hard to get under her blankets and is very determined to get all the way under them.
Izzy was kept in an xpen when her foster mom was not home and at night for the first few weeks she was in her foster home but she started expressing her dislike for being limited to that area plus she proved to be ready for free roam of her home and did wonderfully.
She can be found in a bed by herself or snuggling with another dog.  She continues to love being on a lap covered in a blanket also.
She is simply the most perfect cuddle pup you could ever find.
Her potty skills are not perfect but she can go for a few hours (4-5) without having to go.  A washable potty pad is kept down for her when her foster mom is at work and during the night.  During warmer weather, she was doing much better since she would take her time to potty outside instead of running back in the house to get out of the cold of PA recently (she is originally from balmy, LA).
Update 12-9-2021: Izzy’s spay surgery had to be postponed so she will be on medical hold until January 24th.
She is doing very well and is excited to have a home of her own after that date!Izzy is an approximately 11 year old, small, gentle, quiet, love bug of a girl who could spend the majority of her days cuddling all the way under a blanket with her human or in her bed. She is good with other dogs and doesn’t seem to notice cats at this point. Everyone who meets her falls in love with her.
When she was taken to the vet for her first visit, she sat on her foster mom’s lap and leaned her side and head back against her and had no interest in getting down.  She had a very good check up. She is a very healthy little girl and did not even need a dental. She has a bit of a tracheal cough and has just started on a med for that which has shown to help significantly already.
Izzy’s vision is impaired significantly, if not totally. Her hearing seems to be a little bit impaired. She startles easily when touched from the side or behind. She can easily hear other dogs barking.
Izzy has been staying in a large playpen area most of the time to gradually introduce her to her new surroundings.  She barks when she has to go outside to go #2 but will use the puppy pads in her area to pee.  She seems like she will catch on quickly to always go outside.
Izzy loves exploring her fenced-in yard but would enjoy a walk on a leash just as much, so she does not have to have a fenced in yard to be happy. She is very agile and can walk fast when she wants to! She would be happiest in a home with children who will be gentle with her, or no children, and with dogs who are laid back and gentle, or no dogs at all. She’d also love all the attention herself, I’m sure, if she were the only dog!!
