Default Shira, the Miniature Pincher

By popular demand (in my introduction thread), here are a couple of pics of my dog, Shira (Miniature Pinscher) as a puppy (9 weeks) and as an adult (2 years old on the pic, 5 years old now).





She met my sister's budgie, Mio, today, and it did not go very well. The budgie didn't seem to care much, but I'm pretty sure Shira would eat Mio if she got a chance. :/

I guess it's just going to be a "bird stays in cage which is way out off dog reach" situation whenever I bring the dog on my visits.

What a cute dog
You'll need to keep her away from Mio though.

Yes, she's not getting near Mio. And I will not take her to my sister either, unless I have to.

What a cutie Shira is!

I'm glad you are going to make sure Shira and Mio never come into contact again!

Oh how cute Shira is ! I see that MinPin ears are bent as puppies, and naturally go upwards as they mature. Adorable in both pics!

I'm glad your sister's budgie wasn't hurt. It's always good to remember even a nice small dog (or cat) can kill a budgie quite easily.

For clarity: Mio was in his cage the whole time - he was safe. But Shira's reaction made it very clear that it has to stay that way.

She is very cute, but not very bird friendly.

Shira is adorable!

It's good that you were able to safely assess that it's not safe to have Mio out at the same time. We always encourage members to keep dogs and cats away from their birds as there are far too many sad posts about budgies being injured or killed.

It's great to see how you were able to see the danger signs.
The picture of Shira as a puppy is so cute. Those cute little puppy eyes.... so sweet!

Shira is a beautiful little girl.

I'm glad you've recognized it is critical that the budgie be safely in its cage or Shira be enclosed in a different area of the home when you go to visit your sister.
It only takes a moment of inattention for a tragedy to occur.

Shira is absolutely precious! I love her name, too! It's so peaceful and rolls off the tongue nicely. I have a soft spot for small dogs...I own one myself
