Hey ya'll, my name is Dallas - very pleased to meet you!!! I was rescued from the shelter where they told IMPS I was the biggest min pin they ever saw....hehehe!!! It turns out I'm part german pinscher which makes me 19" at the shoulder and just one tough lookin guy. I'm docked and cropped, very light red and now that I'm 10 getting some white too. That just means I'm all the wiser ;). I would be really good as an only dog even though I do well with others to play for short periods but would like to be someone's one and only. I'm more about the human than other dogs and would be just thrilled to even just have one owner. The stability in my life has been for the birds so I need someone who will commit to me for the rest of my days. I'm very responsive to a positive environment, but like a strong pack leader who of course is very loving. I'm still a little wary of strangers so need slow deliberate introductions and have a pretty strong protective nature about me. I have a lot of puppy left in me but also LOVE LOVE LOVE to snuggle!!! The more love in the game, the more I'm in!!! Note from foster: Dallas has had lots of instability in his adoptions, so he really needs a stable loving home. He's pretty alpha, so a strong leader is a must and his perfect home is one or two owners who will dote on and spoil him for the rest of his days that are retired or work from home. He's lived with cats and really wants to play too rough with them but is not aggressive, so I'd say no cats. Older children would be fine, but Dallas tends to attach to one individual family member. A calmer, less trafficked home would be ideal for him. Dallas is one of my favorite fosters of all times. He looks at you and makes great eye contact and is incredibly smart!!! For the right home, he would be an amazing companion!!!
