Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Toy Fox Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Shots are up to date (records can be provided). He has had knee replacement on both hind legs. He lives with another dog and two cats and they get along. He does have what I call a Jeckle/Hyde personality. He can be extremely sweet and loving. However, he will get in a "zone" at times where he becomes possessive over something that is on the floor. It can be ANYTHING (a small scrap of paper, shoes, toy...). When he gets like that, we have not figured out a way to "snap him out." He hovers and growls over the item, and if anyone tries to near, then he will bite. If there is a way this can be corrected, he would be a great dog. This generally happens when there is more than one person in his presence. If he is alone with someone, he is not trying to find his "heirarchy." CONTACT: Jeannie Baker Please fill out an adoption application today at

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, 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.
