BREED: Miniature Pinscher
ORIGIN: Santa Barbara Animal Services
Arthur was a true pack leader. In fact, he lived with our little dog pack and led them during the day. He was very dog social, and had never met a dog he couldn’t help - He helped other dogs, when they needed to work on their social skills. He did have some pretty severe food aggression when he came to us, but our trainer fostered him for about 8 months and helped him work through his issues. With some guidance from our trainer, he could have lived in just about any household, as long as he went home with the right person. But his right people were our two trainers, Brian and Ari. Arthur (Also lovingly refereed to as churro) had a very serious medical condition in his golden years where he had frequent and debilitating seizures. He was fostered by both Brian and Ari and found his forever home, that way. He lived in a loving home for the end of his life, with people he knew and loved. Arthur was adopted by our trainer Brian before he was put to sleep because of his painful, terminal illness. He found a home, and he was so cherished by all of DAWG’s staff and volunteers. He was such a special little man, who had more personality then you could fit in his little body. He will be dearly, dearly missed.
