When, Where and How I Got My Miniature Pinscher
I inherited her when a friend passed away, she was two and a half then. She lived in a very quiet household and did not get outside among other dogs. Her owner was handicapped. She had no training.
I'd Describe My Dog As…
She is a very sweet dog, WHEN SHE IS ONLY WITH ME AND IN A ROOM THAT HAS CURTAINS DRAWN SO SHE CAN'T SEE OUTSIDE AND LOOK AT PEOPLE AND BIRDS. When she can observe them, she gets frantic and runs around in circles and barks and barks and I can't get her to stop. I signed her up for obedience classes, but she was too anxiety-filled to gain anything from them.
- TAKE HER TO OBEDIENCE CLASS WHEN IT IS A PUPPY.
