N.B. Please read our firm requirements BEFORE applying. If you do not know and understand Min Pins, DO NOT APPLY.

Clever, feisty, athletic, agile, outgoing and affectionate quickly define this elegant Miniature Pinscher. Hamlet, now 10 months old, loves playtime, his walks, fetching sticks in the yard, cuddling on the couch with his humans, playing with other dogs and deep snoozes wrapped up in his cozy blankets. Hamlet is super smart and super treat-motivated therefore very trainable and has already learned many tricks in his foster home.

Hamlet needs an experienced, active family who can give him the opportunity to vent his energy by providing the exercise and mental stimulation he requires. Another active canine playmate in the home, agility classes or ongoing obedience are great options for this busy guy.

True to his breed, Min Pins are known to be climbers, diggers and nimble escape artists. Hamlet must be kept on a leash or in a securely fenced area at all times, like his Min Pin relatives, he is sharp-eyed, curious, and quick to react.

Loyal to a fault and very attached to his humans Hamlet, suffers from separation anxiety and requires a human presence and a commitment to continue the required work in this area.

If you are a novice looking for a quiet and submissive lap dog, a Min Pin is not the right breed for you.

Hamlet is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped and weighs 12 lbs.
