If the Miniature Pinscher is the "King of the Toys," then our Sister Midnight is the breed's Queen Dowager. She has a comedic quality that is an irreverent blend of old school Rosie O'Donnell and Bette Midler. Midnight is bold and intense, and her antics will keep her family in stitches.



Midnight, ten years old, came to us in a shell shocked state, after her callous owner dumped her in a high kill big city animal control facility. It is always unsettling for a senior dog to lose his or her home, but the stark shelter experience is especially frightening. The stress level in the shelter took its toll on Midnight, and she did not weather the change well. Fortunately, she was rerouted to our rescue shortly before she hit the euthanasia list.

Midnight has relaxed and settled into foster care nicely. She's an outgoing dog, and frankly, a bit of a budinski. Midnight happily minds everybody else's business, and she seems to get away with it most of the time. In the dog pack, she does her best to try and maintain social order, and she is fairly successful, but sometimes, she will come across a much larger dog who will put her in her place, and luckily for Midnight, she has enough common sense to back down.

Midnight would be a great choice for an active adult couple, or energetic retiree, who enjoy a spirited small dog. She is extremely loving and affectionate: the perfect lapdog. She would also do well in an easy going family, with older, dog savvy kids. She could easily join a multi-dog home, and would make an excellent companion for another senior dog, who may have recently lost his or her housemate. Midnight would probably do well in a feline home with dog savvy cats tolerant of a pushy canine personality.

Technically, at 10 years old, Midnight is a senior, but her energy level suggests a much, much younger dog. She has a lively, vibrant personality, and a pretty high energy level. She needs at least one to two brisk leash walks a day, in addition to frequent potty breaks. Midnight would be a fantastic walking companion for an active senior or couple. Exercise is important for Midnight because she loves to snack, and if adopters do not monitor her diet and exercise, she will blow up like a balloon!

Midnight is house trained and crate trained, but adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during her transition to a new home. She is spayed, and in good health. We have done exhaustive vet work, and health screening to take the guesswork out of adopting an older dog. She has had a complete dental procedure, and tolerated anesthesia well. Her teeth are in great shape, and that is key to longevity for a senior dog.

Midnight has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, parvo, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, and coronavirus), and canine flu. She has been boostered as needed. She has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been dewormed, and microchipped.
