About Us
Jesse James, Chanel, the Pets of the Day
Name: Jesse James, Chanel
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Male, Female
Kind: Miniature Pinschers
Home: Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada
   Here are a couple of Miniature Pinschers. They are very hyper but some of the best dogs I have ever known - smart, energetic and willing to please all the time. The left one standing is a male. He is 2.5 years old and his name his Jesse James. We call him that because he is a menace and likes to get into trouble. He yaps a lot and pretends to be the dominant one until someone or some dog comes after him, then he runs for me. Jesse is easy to train. He rolls over, sits, stays, heals and comes when you call him.

    Chanel is a female and a little bigger than Jesse. She is quiet and will stand up to any thing or dog. Very brave. She loves to play with big dogs. She has her own mind and won't come the first time you call her. She plays stubborn. She is affectionate when she wants to be. Jesse and Chanel were supposed to be mates but we had them fixed. Now they both share in each others lives and love playing and cuddling with each other. They are very protective of each other, Jesse more so toward Chanel.

    If you want a big dog in a small body, these are the dogs to get. Chanel weighs 14lbs. and Jesse is 8.5 lbs. They both stand around 12" high. We didn't crop the ears but the tail is cropped. Very clean dogs. They always get the "double-take looks" when we walk them.
