Sorry.......blanket statements like that are not true. I have had two min pins and never had a problem with house breaking. Friends of mine breed min pins and her house is emaculate. Mini dachshunds are not supposed to house break either. Mine was trustworthy at 4 to 5 mo. old. When I get a new puppy I spend tons of time with it for the first month or two. I live and breathe puppy. I do not have one dog that is not trustworth. But I crate when I leave and I crate at night.Ashley said:I like Mini Pins as well, but herd they are hard to house break. NOt sure I want another stubborn one.
What would that be? There are some mini pins for sale in my framemaker I was gonna call on.But I crate when I leave and I crate at night.Ashley if you want a min pin......get one......but choose one carefully. There are ways to test more trainable dogs from the less trainable ones in a litter.
I've never owned a beagle, but a small beagle is what I would want, if I ever get a small dog. I've heard they have great personalities. Had neighbors in Colorado with a 13" beagle, they ignored the poor thing, but he was so sweet.justaboutgeese said:You will not get this suggestion from to many people but a ten inch beagle would be an ideal choice for you. So many of the small breed dogs do better where either they are the only dog or the other dog is the same breed. Beagles get along with everybody. Ther used to be just 13 and 15 inch beagles but many are available now in the 10 to 12 inch range. Sweet disposition, smart as all get out and there is nothing cuter than a beagle pup.
