PuppySpot was AMAZING.. I selected Jack early on (previously called Logan) I corresponded with Tommy who was so kind helpful and knowledgeable. Once I made my decision got pictures and videos and updates periodically. My final assessment was with Erin and she was also so helpful. Jack was delivered to my door happy and healthy and he’s just the sweetest dog EVER! Im so happy I took the time to select the best dog for me. Totally worth it and I recommend this website to anyone who will listen.
Miniature Pinscher Characteristics
The Miniature Pinscher is a German breed bred for the hunt! But this hunt is for rodents in homes or stables rather than woods and fields. They make excellent apartment companions because of their size but need frequent, rigorous exercise to truly thrive. Mini Pinschers are very affectionate and enjoy the company of their humans, but still require mental stimulation and structure to live their happiest lives.

One of the top ranking sites for dog friendliness is Pawsafe. They analyze and rank each state based on factors like pet care costs, walkability scores, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws.

A similar study from Safewise, another reputable ranking site, also revealed Illinois to be highly pet-friendly. They rank Illinois second just behind Washington.

A few more dog-related facts for Illinois
Despite the great numbers in Illinois, only 32% of Illinois residents own a dog, which is well below the national average of 40%. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in the state are Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers. In the city of Chicago, the same three breeds are equally as popular, but there is also a keen interest in French Bulldogs and Rottweilers.
However, the state’s total pet ownership rate is far less than the national average as well, with only approximately 49% of Illinois families owning a pet of any kind.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Illinois
Illinois saved 1,028 more animals in 2020 than in 2019. Out of 177 animal shelters, 126 are no-kill shelters. The overall save rate for the state is right around 82%. If Illinois can raise its save rate more, it will pass the 90% necessary to become a no-kill state. We hope they can do it!
