Hi I am here.Fist of all I recomment a metal crate not plastic cause Rosco can escape the plastic ones.I wouldnt go any bigger than26L X 18.5W X 16.5H thats in inches.For the first few weeks a small plastic cat carrier would work.Once the pup gets bigger they are houdini wannabees.Height on a Min Pin is around 11 inches so you wont need anything too big.

They are good dogs.A little stubborn to housetrain as quite a few toy breeds are.He is a amazing watchdog though.He wouldnt even back down from a Growling 207 lb Saint Bernard.What color are you looking into.I love the Black and tan and Chocolate and tans.Dont let anyone tell you Red is rare either its bull.

i like the choc/tan. but it really doesnt matter. is there a difference between male and female behaviour? i just want him/her as a pet, not a show dog. so ti will be spayed/neutered, but i was wondering if there are diff. characteristics...

Not really.I like them alot.Both sexes are good.It depends on your preferences.Ours sleeps under the covers in between my legs.Spoiled little boy.How did you find your breeder.Be careful and dont pay too much for one.

i found it online. and i called her, and she is also listed at our local vet. she wants 500 for a male, showquality and excellent pedigree. she just told me she only had males left. she also gives me a puppy kit and she said if i couldnt keep the dog for any reason,she will accept it back. i am going there on sunday to check everything out. what should i look for? clean envronment, right? she has them in the house, not in cages. and what else? fleas, ticks, gums? eyes? and what else?
