Pet of the Week


Meet Skye!

This week¹s featured Pet Pal is Skye, a 3 year old chocolate & tan coated
Miniature Pinscher (Min Pin) Mix who is  neutered, current on
vaccinations and micro chipped. Skye fits nicely inside of a backpack and
is helping us continue our September¹s NAME YOUR OWN PRICE Back to School
Adoption Special.

Skye¹s Story-
Hello there – my name is Skye. I am a well-rounded guy who has a stellar
personality to match his handsome appearance. I am nothing but sweet and
affectionate with people and dogs alike. I enjoying socializing and
playing with other dogs. I would probably not do well in a home with
indoor cats because I tend to chase them – however I have not shown any
signs of aggression towards cats. I am very friendly and will try my best
to jump into your lap when we first meet. I am calm and respectful when I
snuggle up and lean on you and I love to be carried. I listen well and I
keep my kennel clean. I was transferred to Woods Humane Society from San
Luis Obispo Animal Services in early August. I rarely bark and I am
looking for a home where I will get a few walks and plenty of love from
my new owners. I can go to a home with children who are respectful of
animals. Please do not wait to get to know me!

Skye¹s Adopt a Pet Profile is

Meet the Breed: Miniature Pinscher
Known as the "King of the Toys," the Miniature Pinscher is a compact,
smooth-coated dog who is alert, spirited and fearless, with a unique
high-stepping, hackney-like gait. With his black and rust coloring,
cropped ears, and docked tail, he resembles his cousin the Doberman
Pinscher, but he is not a miniature Dobie. Coat colors include red, stag
red (red with black hairs), black with rust markings, or chocolate with

A Look Back
"Pinscher" means "Terrier" in German, and the Miniature Pinscher is a
distinctly German breed that originated several centuries ago as an
efficient barnyard ratter. The Miniature Pinscher is reported to include
the Dachshund and Italian Greyhound among its ancestors, along with the
shorthaired German Pinscher.

The Right Breed for You
The Miniature Pinscher can really spice up a person's life. This dog is
small, but he doesn't know it! He's quick and active, with a lively
curiosity. They are good family companions and look out for their family,
bravely challenging intruders with their bold, insistent bark. The "Min
Pin" will be happiest with a family that treats him like a standard-sized
dog. He may be stubborn, but he's also smart. Their small size makes them
a good choice for apartment life. Play and a daily walk will take care of
most of their exercise needs. His short, easy-care coat requires
occasional brushing and shampooing.

Thank you for your support!
