Meet Eggos, a spunky little Miniature Pinscher puppy born around June 25, 2016. Eggos was dumped in the backyard of a kind Samaritan who brought her to us. Although she can be a little shy with strangers, Eggos is your typical high energy, mischievous puppy! She LOVES to play with other dogs, and we highly prefer her to go to a home with another playful dog. She is respectful of dogs who don't want to play, but definitely wants a play buddy! She is good with dogs big and small and her favorite doggie friend is a 100+lb black labrador! Eggos loves to play with toys too and will even fetch... on occasion! She is a smart little girl who knows how to "touch" (use her nose to touch your finger), "sit", "shake", and "high five". She is working on "come" and "down" as well as general good behavior. In terms of potty training, maintaining a consistent schedule and letting her out every few hours is key. She has learned the routine at her foster home and will use puppy pads when the foster home is not home to let her out, or go to the back door to let you know she needs to go out. She can stay in her crate for a few hours, though she does take a few minutes to settle in at first. Eggos is a big cuddler and wants nothing more than to sleep in your bed at night, nestled against the crook of your arm or flopped over your leg! She has recently discovered burrowing under blankets too! As a puppy, she needs someone who will continue to socialize her using positive reinforcement training, and understand that she IS in her teething phase! She is very easy to redirect to appropriate toys, but is still a big fan of stealing slippers. She especially needs someone who can recognize when she is being overwhelmed in new situations and will introduce her to new things at her own pace, as she can be a bit fearful in new situations. This little girl is sure to bring endless entertainment to the right home!
