That's the route I took when I got my first MinPin and was living in an apartment! Not all dogs in rescue are naughty!!! Many are lovely, I just adopted out a wonderful MinPin to a gal in an apartment so it can be done. Just a note: MinPins can live well into their 20's so they are a long living breed!!! My first MinPin that I adopted at 7 is still here and now 17!!! Here's Chopper swimming a few weeks ago at the beach!!


I just read this post...and this is a wonderful idea! There are definately older more sane Pins out there from rescues etc, probably more suitable for your apartment. My two are very young and crazy, so I am giving my opinions on my own experience. This is a good option if you aren't dead set on a puppy. Good thinking!
