We went to the shop in Stamford to rearrange and bring in some new stuff.
I had the idea to go to a shelter in West Chester (NY) since it was only 12 miles away.
here's what happened.
Oh, yes it is.
A young Affenpinscher, probably 2 or 3, and so far he seems really well behaved. The shelter people acted like he was a terror, but neither of us have seen it with him yet. Here's the strangest thing about it. They just gave him to us because they were so happy to have people who knew something about the breed and it's temperment. I think mostly they dealt with large breeds (staffordshires, mastiffs, bulldogs) so they just didn't get the small dog.
We are happy. He should be named soon. and there wil be plenty of photos.
