CA
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 - "ADOPTION PENDING": 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 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.

CA Rudy Rudy Rudy
Rudy: 3½ year old, stag red, neutered male, natural ears and docked tail, 11½" & 9.3lbs. Shots up-to-date, micro-chipped. Rescued from shelter
Rudy is a healthy gorgeous stag red min pin. He has the cutest little light-colored angel wings on his back. His ears are natural and his tail docked very short. We believe he has been "bark softened" as his little voice is low and somewhat hoarse.
When Rudy first came from the shelter, he was very scared and ready to defend himself. Within 24 hours his true self emerged and what a sweet boy he is. We, as his foster parents have already fallen in love with him. Rudy loves to play and go on long walks with his foster siblings. Mostly he loves to cuddle on the couch with his foster parents and foster siblings. He will mark at first, as any male pup does, but doesn't mind a belly wrap. He is house trained as long as he has the option to go "outside and go potty" every few hours during the day. He crates great at night right next to his foster mom and dad's bed however, like most pups he would much prefer to be in his foster parent's bed. Because of the fact that when really frightened he will defend himself, we think a home with young children may not be a great idea for him. He is fine with other dogs, we are not sure about cats. Rudy would love nothing more than to find his loving forever home! He has so much love to give!

NOTE: Rudy is located in Fair Oaks, CA. We will only fly this boy in-cabin with the Adopter.

CA CeCe CeCe CeCe
CeCe: 3 year old, Black & tan, spayed female. Natural ears and tail, 12" and 12lbs. Shots up-to-date & micro chipped. Rescued from shelter.
CeCe is a beautiful, petite girl who was rescued by IMPS just before she was scheduled to be euthanized. When she first arrived at her foster home, she went from wary but calm, seemingly uncertain what was happening to her, and not sure if she was going to be OK - to relaxing and becoming an easy going, low to medium energy, sweetheart. She follows me around, but is not clingy. She's fine as long as she can see me. If not, she makes the most adorable squeaking noises. She is always excited to see me and comes running for petting and attention. If you sit down, she will be in your lap and ready to cuddle. She has quickly burrowed herself deep into my heart.
She loves burrowing under the covers to sleep by her human and doggie siblings, and sleeps quietly through the night. She will find a blanket during the day and wrap herself in it to sleep. She is housebroken and is not destructive.
CeCe came into the resident dog pack quietly and with much dignity even with her uncertainty, and she gets along with both large and small dogs, and does not seem interested in the resident cat. She has been exposed to a number of humans in differing situations. She's been just fine and loves the attention.
When CeCe was first brought into the care of the animal shelter, she was infested with fleas and it affected her hair. Her coat is already softening and growing back in very rapidly. She has let me medicate her, clean her ears, and bathe her without incident. She is pretty now, and will only become more beautiful with time.
What CeCe needs now is a forever home where she is a member of the family, and will receive the love and care she's lacked so far. She is going to make a wonderful addition to the lucky family who adopts her! Better hurry though, because this one could easily cause a foster failure!
For more photos of CeCe, please see: https://imps.shutterfly.com/2559
NOTE: CeCe is located in Springville, CA We will only fly this girl in-cabin with the Adopter.

CA Squeak Squeak Squeak
Squeak: 1½ year old, black & rust, neutered male, natural ears & tail, 12" 11 lbs. Shots up-to-date & micro chipped. Rescued by a good Samaritan.
Say "Hi!" to Squeak! This little guy is a lover not a fighter! You could almost call him a velcro dog! Squeak likes going for walks, exploring the backyard, but most of all, Squeak loves snuggling! He's an "undercover" dog, loving to be in bed with his person.
Squeak has gotten along well with his foster brothers & sisters. He has been exposed to toddlers, but, since he's as squiggly as a toddler, I recommend much older children.
Squeak got his name by the puppy sounds he has made, and the only time he really barks is at dinner time, or when someone is at the door.
A home where he has company most of the day with perhaps a mellow but playful dog would be good for Squeak.
Lots of outdoor potty time is great for Squeak as he is still learning potty training.
Squeak is nervous in the car as he came into rescue due to being tossed out of a moving vehicle.....
Since he has been in foster, he's slowly getting used to riding again, because he only goes fun places!
I love this little guy, and he will definitely be a wonderful addition to the right home! Hes the happiest foster I've ever had!
He's polite at mealtimes, waiting 'til his name is called. He doesn't try to hog anyone's food, but he and one of my dogs have been trading food bowls, each eating half their food, then switching !
Squeak is a pleaser, trying hard to understand what you want....he doesn't always get it, but he tries!
What would make Squeak the happiest would be to live with a family or active person, where someone is home most of the time , who could give him the time & affection he loves!
To see more photos of Squeak, please see: https://imps.shutterfly.com/2553
NOTE: Squeak is located in Roseville, CA We will only fly this boy in-cabin with the Adopter.

CA Bear Bear Bear
Bear - "ADOPTION PENDING": 4 year old, black & tan, male, pending neuter on 04-02-19, natural ears & docked tail, 12" & 12 lbs. Shots up-to-date, micro-chipped. Rescued from shelter.
Bear is a GEM of a pup! He is oh-so-handsome and has such a sweet disposition. Bear would do well as an only dog or with other dogs. He is learning to play with his pack mates but loves being singled out for attention too. He will never turn down a belly rub and does great in a crate. Bear clearly knows he is supposed to go potty outside but is not yet neutered so is still making some mistakes inside particularly with other alpha dogs in his current foster home. He responds well to instruction though so potty training post-neuter should go well. Whoever ends up with Bear as their pup will be a very lucky home indeed.
Bear's adoption is pending his neuter but potential adopters should apply now. We will not fly him but transportation can be arranged in some situations.
Note: Bear is located in Sacramento, CA. We will not fly this boy unless he is in cabin with adopter.

CA Liam: 3 yr old red male, neutered, undocked tail and uncropped ears. 10.4 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
Liam is a wonderful snuggler. His fur is so soft and he loves to lay his head on your chest, leg or arm and admiringly stare at you. He loves to lay next to you and just cuddle. Liam is potty trained and walks well on a leash. He love to snuggle closely under the bed sheets. He is playful gets along well with other dogs. He tends to the alpha dog and takes a leadership role but fits in well with my own 4 dogs. He is playful and loves to follow me everywhere. Liam would be such a wonderful addition to someone who wants a cuddler and snuggler and who can give him a lot a loving he so deserves.
Note: Liam is located in Rialto, CA.

Sparky is healthy, energetic and full of curiosity. Sits well on command, does well on leash but needs more training to heel. Prefers to meet strange men slowly in his own time. He is indifferent to most dogs but will bark if they bark first.
Loves the dog park where he runs and plays among dogs, adults and children alike but gets spooked if things get rough.
Cuddly and quiet indoors, likes to rest in his crate when not snuggling on your lap.
He's a bright, intelligent youngster who will do well with a routine of regular walks, runs or similar activity. Clean,healthy, happy and ready to meet his new forever family.
Note: Sparky is located in Daytona Beach, FL.
