Thank you for all the great replies. I am going to rethink my decision about getting a min pin as I agree it would be hard to have one in an apartment. I love these dogs - whenever I see pictures of them it always put a big smile on my face and my eyes get all teary because they are just so darn adorable. I've read so many stories on people who own them and how much they love their min pins - high energy and all. Guess I'll have to search for another breed of dog.
