My breed, the miniature pinscher (or min-pin), is known as the “King of the Toys”; I’m a perfect example. My name is Jax and I am a 6-month-old male min-pin who could have been named Kanga because I love sitting with my front legs raised, kangaroo-style. And I can’t get enough of being carried around. When you visit me, please don’t tell the staff you want to see the miniature doberman: No such thing. We are our own special breed.
This past week, five of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Road, Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit www.rawldogs.org.
