    Female found in Meyersdale PA.  She is okay with kids and other animals. Don't want to send her to shelter.  Looking for good home for her!

    She has made herself at home, trying to dethrone my cat.  I will probably end up keeping her.

    We had a purebred MinPin for many years-- he was a little 'high strung", but a good dog,. They all have their individual personalities. The dog we have now  is a miniature pincher mix (from a shelter)-- looks much like the one you found.  You might have a veterinarian check to see if the  dog is microchipped with an ID. I can understand you not wanting to take it to a shelter-- even though small cute dogs have a very good chance of being adopted.

    This is mine.

    I took her to vet today to be scanned. No chip. Dog warden told me due to the good condition she is in, his bet would be that somebody just dumped her and left. The shelter here is in deplorable conditions from what I have been told.   I have posts on Twitter and Facebook about her.

    Sorry, forgot to say Rochelle.  In less than a week, she has made herself at home, chews up cat's toys, clings to me, and has become very possessive as well as protective. If we are outside together and someone comes along, the hair stands and the barking starts.  She was quiet when I go her.  I looked up personality of these dogs which fits her 100 percent.  She is stubborn.  Jumped out of car today, and luckily she took wrong turn and got stuck in a corner so I was able to step on leash.
    She will not come when called.

      This doggie looks like my grand dog Ginger. Can't be since, she was here this afternoon in California.   Min Pins make excellent guard dogs.  My son has two.  They would give their lives for their people.
      When you call her always reward with a treat. Min Pins will do just about anything for a treat. Love it when the grands come to visit.  They will clean up any food my Border Collies leave.

    Good for you for rescuing! Wish more people would take non-feral homeless strays off the streets. smile As someone who has volunteered at the shelter, I can say enthusiastically that the it is so great if you can arrange rehoming yourself - shelters are just way too overcrowded, and this leads to many shelters being forced to put down lots of pets... very sad. Of course, some shelters are crap anyway, so yeah.

    Did you try calling the pound, just to check if anyone lost a dog?

    You should notify the local shelter and send a picture.  Then if the owners do there they will be able to contact you. The odds are that this dog being in good condition had owners who may be looking for it. Unless you make a "reasonable effort" to find them you can end up in hot water.

      I called SPCA and gave information. I have newspaper ad. I posted on Facebook and Twitter. Ad was done on local radio station. Local vet was contacted.  I made posts on various lost and found pets online sites.   I think that is more than a reasonable effort. Due t the condition of the dog after almost of week of being seen loose, the dog warden feels that it was simply dumped by owner.

        How's your puppy doing? Still running the house?

          Hoping that a home has been found. Yes she is. Her new thing is to chase the cat.  My cat is too old for that and is very upset.   While nice, dog is outside and crated at night.

            Sounds like you are managing, but yes, very upsetting for the cat!
