Never expected to own a min pin because I don't like Doberman Pinschers. However, I friend found one and was going to take it to Animal Control where I feared it may face death. I told him to bring it to me and I would take it to a no-kill shelter. I kneeled down to pet the dog and it climbed up into my lap and was very happy and loving. Needless to say, he was my dog from that moment on! Love and miss you Snickers!
