Moving to the atlanta area and would rather foster her until we are established but that doesn't seem likely. With that said, she is house broken, protective, and born to be wild. She is 100% house broken as long as you take her out on time. She is 100% going to potty in your house if you don't. She will then hide in her crate knowing exactly what she has done.

Outside she barks at any and everything that isn't her owners. She barks to say hello. She barks to get attention. She barks just to get an adrenalin rush. However, with humans she will bark and run right up to them and jump on their leg. For her, it's just how she says hi. With other pups, be careful. She has snapped at other pups so she needs to be an only child. Although she had a brother/boyfriend, she is his boss. The first day we got her as a 9 week old, she snapped at him too! She did have 1 liter and she would play with her pups by fake biting them. Surprisingly she was the best mom imaginable and I just couldn't believe it. Her instincts as a mom were amazing. But once they pups were old enough, she went back to her wild ways. Can we handle her? Absolutely. Are we rehoming her because she was a handful? No way! Her personality was her personality and if we were not moving, possibly having to rent, or possibly not even having a place to stay due to two mortgages, we just can't keep both our pups around us during this transitional period. So hard to even think about. We now have a place for her that has a big yard, the neighborhood is spread out and quiet, so she doesn't see much action. Headed to Atlanta, I am afraid she will go crazy in a more busy neighborhood, barking at everything that moves, and chasing her own shadow.

In the house, she stays in the kitchen with her brother. She doesn't really break her barrier rule, which is a simple gate she can easily move if she wanted. Instead she stays put and waits for us to say "go for a ride" "go for a walk" or "go potty", then she will run full speed and break the barrier and run to the door. All those things she loves with all her little heart, especially going for a ride. She runs back and forth in the backseat looking for cars and people to talk to.

Hurts us, but we may have to rehome her. We are taking responses with your story (if possible) and will consider rehoming her to you. She is a pure miniature pinscher that we got from a German Amish family in Ohio 3 years ago. We never registered her because we weren't going to breed her. However, she is 100% min pin, personality and all. Unfortunately we have learned when dealing with "free" pet owners, things tend to not be about the puppy and more about the deal. For that reason and that reason only, we require a very modest / two hundred rehome fee that WE WILL RETURN after you have fully adopted her and have taken care of her for a year. Half after 6 months, if you offer us an update and possible visit, the other half after a year. YES, we will return your fee and do this for our pups assurance not our wallets. I apologize to those that do not have the funds for a fee, but this girl is our baby and our moving situation leaves us just unable to safely take care of her.
