If you decide to keep it, minpins have huge problems with "big dog syndrome" where if they're not kept in line, they'll thing they're the alpha, and that they can kill even the hugest dog. That usually gets them in big trouble and frustrates their owners.

We let it inside for a bit and gave it a bath....it just sniffed one of our 2 cats and didn't seem to care about them. The cats were pretty freaked out though.

It does seem to look closest to a mini pincher, but it's legs are too short and stubby.

Looks like a doxie/Manchester mix with those ears.

i finally found a no-kill shelter with ONE opening. It was a bit out of town, and during the drive the dog sat on my lap the entire time and wouldn't let me stop petting her. When I drove up there were several small run-down kennel buildings, and about 30 outside cages. LOTS of loud barking. I started walking into the buildings until I found some staff. In this particular building the dogs barking was so loud i thought my ears would start bleeding....probably about 30-40 dogs in that one small room. I signed the paperwork and brought the dog in -- she was cowered in my truck, but she let me pick her up and carry her to the cage. She was shivering from fear the entire time.

I still feel really guilty about having to leave her there, but it's the best I could do.

I kept waiting for you to say, "and then I turned around and took her home". But don't feel bad, you did a good thing for a dog regardless.

It's a big responsibility to take on a dog, and 99% of people would have just ignored the thing. You did plenty.
