Well I don't post here often but I was the Crazy one that posted that MIN PINS are not Evil!!! I got alot of replies with good responses those made me Happy.
So today I did it again, I have 4 Min Pins as Some know:
Tyson, Miley, Hunter and Bella and now 1 more, Here is the Story of Mannie.
Mannie is a 2 yr old Black & Rust, Smaller Built 11.8lbs Min Pin, His Birthday is 1/8/07 He was Taken to the Local SPCA in Dec of 07 at 11 months. He was soon adopted my a Preg. Military Women whoes Husband was Deployed and Said to get a Family Dog, So she adopted Mannie just after Christmas.
August of 08 I meet Mannie at the Vet Clinic I work for, He boards, now Here is the Important Part. He is a Shy Nervous Pup but NEVER growled, Showed Teeth or ever Curled a Lip. In Sept. I got Hunter and 2 weeks after getting him I get asking about Adopting a Min Pin from a Client. I said I couldn't but would keep a look out. Come to Find out November it was Manny.
So this is what was said from owner, I Quote "Mannie is Aggressive, Like total Fear Aggression He has snaped at a neighbor and My Husband and I fear for us and My Baby I cannot Keep him, I am working with a Rescue to adopt him out if you know anyone They will be Screened"
So My response was to the Dr. If He comes in for Euthanization CALL ME FIRST. SO this morning Low & Behold He was there almost with the Needle in and Poof Someone Remembers Me, Needless to Say I got the Call and Went straight there and now have Mannie.
Now I have literally Had this Dog since about 7pm tonight and NOT ONE TIME HAS HE SHOWED ANY AGGRESSION, to Me , to My Boyfriend, My Cats, My other Pins or my Larger Dogs, No food Aggression, No Possesion problems, just Nervous but most Min Pins are. So I have done a Check and the only Issue I see that I can Correct in a Short time is He doesn't like his Feet played with, and runs from the Nail Clippers, HE REALLY NEEDS THEM DONE SOON.
This is my assessment of her Situation She got him in Dec of 07 Then has a Baby in July of 08 Then She talks to her husband who was dissapointed becuase he wanted a larger dog. So week before Her husband comes home in the middle of August She get a Brand new Lab Puppy coming in at 20 lbs,
I think one It was him and Her, then she had a Baby, something new, noising, Smelly (To him I mean) and she never introduced him slow and properly, then she adds a new pup that ways almost double him, and takes his toys, Bed, Food Etc....Then she has a Husband home 1 weeks later Poking at him, Upset becuase now there are 2 dogs and he wanted only a lab. MY Assumtion, To must stress for mannie, caused more nervuosness and they didnt' get his Signals to back off, so warning a Bite, and Neighbor didn't know the boundries off Mannie either. and so She said Fear Aggression PUT him Down. SO SO STUPID, when will People learn.
Anyway, He is a foster for now, I am working on his issues and making sure he is Aggression free, and if he works and my boyfriend oks it, He stays, if not He WILL go to a Proper well INFORMED home, and live a Happy FULL life.
I'll keep you updated!!!!
