Meet Cabela

Since we were looking for a short haired dog, we asked if they had anything like a miniature pinscher. Much to our surprise, they had exactly that!

We went out to the kennel area to meet this dog and immediately fell in love with her. Unfortunately, we couldn’t adopt her that day since she had been spayed the day before and was still recovering. They also said that they couldn’t put a hold on her until they were sure that she and Bear would get along with each other.

We went to the Humane Society this morning. Determined to get there before anyone else, we tried to get there by the time they opened. We were a few minutes early, but some of the staff were already there and let us in early. After Cabela’s introduction to us and then to Bear, it was a matter of filling out a bunch of papers and paying the adoption fee.

She is a purebred miniature pinscher (no AKC papers), about two years old, has a red and tan coat, hazel eyes and is smart, very playful and loving. We are extremely pleased with our adoption.

    Awww, she is sweet. We have a black and white Jack Russell. His name when we got him and still today is KING and he is very hyper but a great loveable dog. We also have a big Husky/Chow mix. His name is Marley and sometimes he clobbers King with one fell swoop of his paw (if King is getting attention), but overall we know they totally love each other despite their differences in size and breed. Enjoy your new addition. Love, Sherry
