Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher (short coat). Please contact Vendetta (vendetta@nutsnboltsanimaladvocates.org) for more information about this pet.Pickle is a high stepping miniature pinscher! Pickle is between 10 to 12 years old, and that is just a guess. Pickle is almost completely blind because of cataracts. He is a candidate for surgery because he does have some retna reaction. He can tell bright light from dark, but that is about it. He gets along quite well outside in the wide open spaces and still has that min pin high stepping prance. In the house, he is somewhat more challenged, but still very inquisitive and active. Pickle is a snugglebug and would like nothing more than to sit in your lap and be petted. In fact, if you stop petting him, he will reach out and paw you until you resume petting him. He has learned though, that he can be just as comfortable in his bed---and he loves to burrow under his blankie. He is not a barker, gets along well the resident dogs and bunks with a small female dog. His sniffer is also impaired and he is not happy when he wanders up on a cat, but he just turns and goes the other way. Pickle is a delight and when he comes into the house, he dances around on his hind legs for a little bit to let you know how happy he is. His hearing is great so he comes when he hears his name and when you clap your hands. He can walk in a straight shot to you. You do have to keep an eye on him because although he is considered housebroken, he can get confused about where the outside door is. Hopefully, that will improve as he learns his way around better. Pickle's adoption fee is $150.00. He is neutered, microchipped, crate trained, uptodate on rabies vax and his dhpp. He also had an extensive dental and his bloodwork was good! If you would like to meet Pickle, please contact his foster mom at vendetta@nutsnboltsanimaladvocates.org.

More About Miniature Pinscher Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Princess Ore...


      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Madera, CA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Schnauzer / Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Andrea (msandrearobinson@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Affectionate, playful, housebroken, high energy Princess Oreo Cookie is very cute and very fun if you like to have an active life and interact with your dog. She came here with the name Princess and my nephew wanted to call her Cookie, which I loved, but honestly, she looks like an Oreo so that's what I ended up naming her. Usually I call her "Princess" or "Prin" for short. She loves playing with toys. She loves to learn tricks, especially if there are treats involved. She is a Velcro dog. She's very affectionate and would love to cuddle with you in bed or be by your feet when you're on the computer. She will enthusiastically jump up in the air to greet you. She can "sit to greet" or resist the temptation to jump if you take the time to reinforce her. She will chase cats, rabbits, gophers, flies, and anything else that moves. She loves walking and would probably love running. I don't run. She's been practicing better leash walking and responds well to positive reinforcement. She will bark to let you know that someone's there, and will display rather aggressive Schnauzer-like behavior at the fence line, but has a very solid recall and will come in out of the yard when called. She used to bark at guests, but now I have her trained to be, "Quiet please" and earns a treat when she settles down. She's become very accepting of guests who play along with this and I think she really loves this new way of life. She will get along with playful, young dogs, either male or female, who are not looking to be the leader of the pack. Her approximate birth date is 10/18/2012. She is current on her rabies shots, spayed, and has an AVID microchip. She responds very well and enthusiastically to rewards-based training, especially when treats are the reward. She adores dog toys and loves to chase a ball! Her entire snout is skewed to her left, while her jaw remains straight, making her lower canine teeth stick up on one side and lie flat on the other. I don't know if this is genetic, an accident, or puppy abuse. Princess should not live in a home with children under 12. She doesn't like being picked up or being handled by children and will bite if violated. Schnauzers are feisty and love one person passionately. 'They are described as spirited, fearless, obedient, alert, friendly, and intelligent.' She learned to let me vacuum without barking and knows the cue "quiet": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbX9274bMZA&feature=youtu.be Lately I've been teaching her not to run out the front door and made a little video about how I'm teaching her: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoY6STgYAZI The overall impression that I have of Princess is that once she decides she loves you, it's for life.

    • Chihuahua-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Madera, CA



      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Madera, CA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Vendetta (vendetta@nutsnboltsanimaladvocates.org) for more information about this pet. Sally is a 5 yr old, 10 pound Chihuahua that will love you to the moon and back! Once she gets to know you, that is! She is standoffish at first and may even look like, don't you touch me, but she bonds quickly when she is shown some love and affection. We are not sure what her life was like before we got Sally, so we are suggesting caution with children because of her reluctance to meet new people. She will chase cats and nip at them, but a dog savvy cat will be able to quickly put her in her place! She does get along okay with other dogs, but she is protective of her food and I think she would really prefer to be an only dog. Sally will want to be with you, give you kisses, and look deep into your eyes with her beautiful deep brown eyes. Don't let her initial reluctance put you off, she is a total love bug once she decides you are okay! A secure yard would be nice because she does like to explore. An active person would be great because Sally can run like he wind and thinks she can leap tall buildings! If you would like to meet Sally, please contact her foster mom at vendetta@nutsnboltsanimaladvocates.org. Her adoption fee is $150; she is spayed, microchipped, uptodate on shots, flea treatment and deworming.
