CA
CA Cisco Cisco Cisco
Cisco - "ADOPTION PENDING": 8 years old, blue & rust, neutered male, docked tail & cropped ears, 15" 20 lbs. Shots up-to-date, micro-chipped. Owner surrender.
Cisco is a bigger and a little older Blue Mini Pin gentleman who is still full of love and life with clear bright intelligent eyes that are always taking things in and absorbing what is going on around him.
Cisco's long-time family suffered some unfortunate circumstances and had to leave California. They were unable to take him with them, so they gave him to friends. The friends took care of him for as long as they could, but needed to find a permanent home for him so Cisco was surrendered to IMPS.
Cisco is a blue and rust Mini Pinscher and is absolutely beautiful. He does not show his age, although he does have a couple of cosmetic flaws. He has a fatty tumor that was biopsied by a vet, is current on all of his vaccinations, Heartworm Negative, and had a teeth cleaning. He does get skin infections, and when he does, he will need to be shampooed with a special shampoo. He'll need to be an inside dog since he has a very short, soft coat that is on the sparser side, so he tends to get cold easily and will likely sun burn if outside in the sun too long during the hot summer months.
In addition to being amazingly beautiful, he is just the sweetest, gentlest, and cuddliest guy. He came into his new foster home self-assured and behaved like a total gentleman. There was not a single issue and he acted like he'd lived here forever. Cisco has not had a single accident inside the house, but he does need to be let out from time to time since he doesn't like using the dog door, but he will if he has to.
While Cisco is loving and likes to cuddle, he is very independent so is not "clingy". He's content to find a chair or couch with a blanket to lay on and one to wrap himself up into as long as he knows where his humans are. He does not like being where he can't see or hear you. Cisco is crate trained, but being where he can come and check on you is his preference. He's fine with other dogs, large and small but is not a cat friendly fella.
Having a little older dog is wonderful! They are done with the crazies so they are not destructive and have calmed down from their puppy and adolescent years. While they still have plenty of life and energy left, they tend to be much calmer, giving you the best of both worlds.
This little man may be 8 years old, but you'd never know it. He is full of energy and runs or struts around exploring and loving his life. Now he just needs a stable, forever home where he can be the center of his human's world, and where they can be the center of his.
NOTE: Cisco is located in Springville, CA. We will only fly this boy in-cabin with the Adopter.

CA Burt Burt Burt
Burt: 7 year old, black/tan, neutered male, natural ears, docked tail, 13" 14.5 lbs. Shots -up-to-date, micro-chipped, rescued from hoarding situation.
Burt is one of 8 mipins that IMPS took in from a horrendous hoarding situation. While in the care of the hoarder, it was reported that the dogs lived in airline crates in sheds, mostly in the dark, and most of the dogs with Burt being one of them, had lived in these conditions for a number of years. When Burt arrived at his foster home, he was very thin with dull, coarse hair. His mouth was a stinky mess that required dental attention. Burt was not socialized and he did not know how to appropriately interact with other animals and humans. He has lost both muscle mass and mobility from being confined in a small space for so long. It is just heartbreaking to think about how this poor boy has lived his life, and all of the things he has missed. He hasn't known freedom, love, compassion, security, interaction with people and other critters, and if how skinny and hungry he was is an indication, even basic, healthy food in a quantity to sustain him.
Burt does have some issues, but nothing that a firm but loving correction, and a warm compassionate heart can't help him overcome. When I get frustrated with him, I stop and ask myself, how would I be responding right now to this situation if I had been caged up in the dark for years on end in isolation? I'm not nearly as forgiving or as willing to learn what is expected of me as Burt is.
After being removed from this horrible situation, Burt has made steady progress toward becoming a normal, happy boy. He has regained some of his mobility, I am hopeful that he will regain all of it. He is learning how to interact with his doggie siblings and he's loving that interaction. Burt is learning what it is to run through grass and feel the sun warming him and he is adjusting to life in the light. He's even learned what rain is and what it is like to play in it. Burt is also learning what it is to be held by a human and have his back and tummy scratched next to eating, that is his favorite pastime. He's learning what it is to sleep in a bed and what it is to cuddle with his foster brothers and sisters and his human. Burt is now constantly at my side. He has been starved for affection and companionship and he wants this from a human. He is such a sweet, loving guy who wants to please.
These are all wonderful experiences for Burt, but what he's needing now is his forever home and his forever human. He needs someone to bond and feel secure with and to be loved and respected. Someone that he can depend on to have boundaries, but to love him and provide for his needs.
Burt deserved much better than the life he's had so far, but none of the past can be changed. Now that he is out of that disgustingly harmful situation, Burt needs someone to give him all the things he deserved but never got, and to give these to him for however long he has left. He needs someone to help him heal from the pain and loneliness of his past. Can you be that someone?
NOTE: Burt is located in Springville, CA We will only fly this boy in-cabin with the Adopter.

CA Leo Leo Leo
Leo: 15 year old, black & tan, neutered male, natural ears & tail, 12" 14 lbs. Shots up-to-date. Micro-chipped. Rescued from a hoarding situation.
Leo was brought into IMPS from a horrible hoarding situation. He was one of 8 dogs that had been living in a dark shed, cramped in a small cage, with little or no human contact. But now he is free and happy living in his foster home. Like lots of Seniors, Leo has lost his hearing. But that does not stop him from being an independent min pin. He loves to take walks and run around the back yard with the rest of his foster friends. Leo is typically good about going outside to potty but does make mistakes sometimes. He is a very sweet boy with lots of life in him; he's looking for someone to love him in his golden years. Leo is in the Senior Special Program, which means that 50% of his routine medical bills will be paid for the remainder of his life.
From Leo: "My foster mom says age is just a number for me! I LOVE going on walks, and the vet says, I'm in great health, other than a heart murmur that I seem to be handling great with medications. I like playing with toys and I'm so happy to no longer be cooped up in a dark and dirty shed! As a senior dog half of some of my veterinary costs are covered by IMPS as well."
If you feel that you can love our Leo forever, then please contact Tiffany at tiffany.boyland@gmail.com

Note: Leo is located in Sacramento, CA, and we will not fly this boy unless he is in cabin with adopter.

CA Major Major Major
Major: 6 year old, black & tan, neutered male, natural ears, docked tail, 15" tall, 16 lbs. Fully vetted & micro-chipped. Rescued from a hoarding situation.
According to records Major is 6 years and 10 months old. His tail is docked, ears natural and floppy like a miniature Rottweiler. He has long and elegant legs that are springy and quick. Major is very friendly and seems to like everyone. He is housebroken and uses a doggy door. He is learning to walk on a leash and does fine once he gets past the initial excitement of getting his walking harness and leash put on. Major starts out bedtime sleeping in a doggy bed at the foot of the bed, but manages to sneak into bed with his foster parents during the night.
Major was one of 8 Min Pins rescued by IMPS from a terrible hoarder situation in Southern CA. He was living crated in a dark and dirty shed along with numerous other dogs and cats. When Major was brought into foster it was apparent that he just longed for someone to be nice to him. He certainly returns that as he has great temperament. Two of the foster brothers he lives with have alpha tendencies, but Major shows no interest in challenge and ignores or deflects their alpha aggression very well. He is a very sweet boy who loves to cuddle as much as he loves his new life out of the dark crate. When he gets very excited he jumps up and bucks like a bronco.
Major would do well as an only dog, or with a companion dog or two. Be prepared to cuddle.

CA Ziggy Ziggy Ziggy
Ziggy: approx. 6 year old, black & tan, neutered male, natural ears, docked tail. 11" & 11 lbs. Fully Vetted and Micro chipped. Rescued from a hoarding situation.
Ziggy is the sweetest, cuddliest and happiest little guy weighing around 11 pounds. He gets along well with his dog siblings and does not pay attention to the resident cat. He loves most everyone he sees and he doesn't seem to remember the horrors of his past. His ability to leave and all that he's gone through behind and move forward to a better life is inspirational. His attitude seems to be; what is done is done and today is a great day, so life is good!
Ziggy is one of the "Hoarder 8" that IMPS brought in from a hoarder where he was living in a small crate, in a dark shed with little to no contact with humans or other animals. Ziggy had a growth on his right front leg that was so large and so intertwined with the joint above his foot and the bones in his feet that it could not be removed. He could not use his foot, making it difficult for him to move about swinging a giant club at the end of his leg. In addition, he was in desperate need of dental care. His teeth have been cleaned and the infected teeth extracted. Once the infection was cleared from his mouth and at his vet's recommendation, his right front leg was amputated.
From the time Ziggy came home from his surgery, he has adapted to his leg amputation like a champ! He recovered rapidly and without any visible signs of distress. His energy level went up and keeping him calm while he healed was a bit of a challenge. After his stitches came out, he's been running around like he had four legs, not three, and even runs up the 7 steps at the back of his foster home thoroughly enjoying his newly found freedom. Ziggy's vet detected no sign of malignancy from the growth, and Ziggy has been given a "clean bill of health".
When Ziggy first arrived at his foster home, his eyes were so cloudy that his foster mom thought he might be blind. This has cleared significantly with exposure to light, and although there is some cloudiness remaining, he can definitely see well.
Ziggy will have an occasional accident in the house, but is more than happy to go outside as long as his humans remember to take him out several times a day. He is leash trained, loves riding in the car, and goes into stores with his foster mom in a carrier where he proudly rides in the cart, just happy to be able to see what is going on in the world around him. He will occasionally bark, but not excessively and usually quiets when asked. Because Ziggy has a bit of grey in the muzzle and has three legs, not four, he is not suitable for a home with small children. Ziggy loves being with his foster siblings, so if you have another dog for him to interact with, he'll love that.
Ziggy is a little older dog, but having a little older dog is wonderful! They are done with the crazies so they are not destructive and have calmed down from their puppy and adolescent years. While they still have plenty of life and energy left, they tend to be much calmer, giving you the best of both worlds.
Now Ziggy just needs a stable, forever home where he can be the center of his human's world, and where they can be the center of his. A home where his humans will continue to show him the world he has missed so much of. A world filled with light, love, freedom and knowing he belongs in a family who will give him the attention and the care he so lacked such a short time ago.
