STATE DESCRIPTION
OH
OH Bogie Bogie Bogie
Bogie: 3 yr old black & rust male, neutered, docked tail and natural ears. 14½", 15 lbs. Shots up to date. Housebroke.
I would like to introduce my beloved Bogie. I know you know who Bogie was, a tough guy, but with a heart of gold. Well this would describe this boy as well. He did not have a good life before coming to rescue. He has been in rescue quite some time, and we are waiting for the right forever home for him. You see he does have some quirks, but in the right home he would flourish. Bogie is the most loving of all the dogs in my home, he is crate trained, housetrained, will walk well on a lead, and his recall is fairly good as well. He sleeps near me every night, and always is by my side. He loves my 13 grandson and will not let him out of his sight.
Bogie does not do well with most smaller dogs, any cats, or little critters. This boy has a prey drive which is bred into the minpin. He could not go to a home with small children because he would knock them over when he is playing. Bogie loves his people, but does not like strangers, and he would need to be introduce slowly to people he did not know.
But as I have said I simply adore this boy. I am looking for a forever home with dog knowlege on how to have Bogie live in your home. Once he trusts you, he is your friend and protector for life.
Note: Bogie is located in Holland, OH - and we will not fly this boy.

OH Boston Boston
Boston: 6.5 yr old black & rust male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 12", 8 lb. Shots up-to-date.
"Hey everyone, I am here. My new name is Boston. I am a very happy and outgoing little pin head. I greet everyone with a smile and then let them know "Hey want to pet me?" I am happy for attention, am not pushy and just a great little guy. I lost my previous home, not sure why, because I am so sweet that my foster momma says I am like candy, can not have too much."
Little sweet Boston rides so well in the car, I dearly love this boy already. Now you know no one is perfect and alas my boy is not either. You see he is a little older and has a heart mumur. But he takes his pill very gently, and just wants to be with you. He is an angel. Not one bad habit. Perhaps you could find a little room in your heart and home for this little guy. Trust me he will give you more love and devotion than you could ever dream of. Boston is waiting.
Note: Boston is located in Holland, OH - and we will not fly this boy.

OH Schroeder Schroeder
Schroeder: 3 year old, black and tan male, 12" height, 13 lbs, natural ears, docked tail. Schroeder came into rescue, abused, hurt, and emaciated when found by the shelter, who begged me to take him. Lord only knows what he had been thru. This poor boy has had a rough life, he has healed, gained weight, and is starting to trust humans again. He would much rather be adopted by a gentle all women household, he has problems with men, everytime my husband is playing with the other dogs, or raises his hand to pet (underhand is fine) Schroeder gets very upset, and wants to protect. He has come a long way, and would need a very understanding adopter. He must be leashed when visitors come to the door, and be introduced very quietly with lots of reassurance and treats. Otherwise Schroeder is a wonderful lap warmer, bed snuggler, and is really doing well on his house training. He loves to play with toys, squeekies are best, has a ball chasing thrown objects, not much for bringing them back, so I just gather a bunch and let him go get them. He is quiet in the crate, I feed him there, since he is always hungry and wants everyone's food. He will also sleep in the crate, but would much rather snuggle under the covers with you, and he is a great little heater. He would do well as the only dog, no idea how he would do with cats or children, so I will say no to both. Yes, he needs further socialization, training, and manners, but most of all needs someone to give him a chance to be the wonderful dog I know he can become. He is neutered, up to date on all shots & vaccines, & heartworm negative. Please contact me if you would like to be that person.
Note: Schroeder is located in Commercial Point, OH - and we will not fly this boy.

OH Presley Presley: 5 yr old chocolate male, neutered, undocked tail and uncropped ears. 12", 9 lb. Shots up-to-date. Rescued from shelter.
This little boy came from a hoarder situation, and for this reason is the way he is...
Presley has been in my foster home for some time. He is a funny little boy. Pres can climb out of a baby gate, an Xpen, certain type of crate, and a chain link fence, but he loves to run in a back yard with a privacy fence. He loves being outside, and playing with the other foster dogs. Pres does have recall in the yard or a contained area, but if he escapes from you, he has NO recall, all he thinks of is running and having his person chase him.
But he can be a very loving boy, who only wants to be with you, and make you happy. Presley loves giving kisses and sitting in your lap and sleeping with you. He does have many good thigs about him, and other things he can work thru. Please consider giving him a forever home. He will love you more than any other dog could.
Note: Presley is located in Holland, OH - and we will not fly this boy.

OH Donovan Donovan
Donovan: 5 yr old red male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 12", 9 lb. Fully vetted. Owner give-up.
Donovan first came to our rescue about four years ago as a sweet, gentle, handsome, young red boy. He was adopted quite quickly, but alas he has had to come back to us. The reason he came back was not his fault. This darling boy is still sweet and loving, and gets along great with his dog pals. His foster mom thinks he is the cutest thing, and Donovan justs wants to melt into you when he is in your lap. He does walk a little funny, because of some accidents that happened in his past. And he has suffered quite a bit of trauma to his back. He has lots of arthritis on his spine especially the area where the spine is bone on bone. He also has a rib not attached any longer because of the back trauma. For these reasons he will always be wobbly when walking and when he shakes himself he might just fall over. He will need a sweater or coat when out in cold weather and possibly just a light shirt inside to help keep his arthritic bones warm. He also has damage to his eyes.. He has cataracts on both eyes, so his vision will always be a little sketchy. He will most likely need some type of pain medication for the rest of his life, but this certainly does not stop our boy from doing everything from running, playing and living large. Please consider Donovan as an addition to your loving family..he sure could use the belief that there are kind people in this world who will treasure him!
Note: Donovan is located in Holland, OH - and we will not fly this boy.

IMPS Ohio newest intake Jerry a 1 yr 2 mnth all natural boy. We got a call today that owner could not get his dog vetted he had been adopted as a 10 mnth old to a disabled elderly gentleman by a shelter. Jerry has gotten out a couple times, but this last time either hit by a car or got stuck in something leaving several open sores and muscle pain. We offered to pay for vet visit but the owner said he could not afford and just could not keep up with Jerry. He also was told by the shelter that owner give ups could be euthanised first. so here he is with us. He needs socialized with other doggies or a home of his own. He is very scared right now, but wants love and attention. He likes to snuggle, at least when we came home from the Vet, he plopped himself on my tummy and took a nice long nap. A little barkey, and excitable, he would benefit from some training, and nice long walks or runs, after he convaleces and gets all better. Please fill out an adoption application at www.minpinrescue.org/home.html and let his foster mom know you are interested in giving Jerry another chance for a home that can take care of him.

OH Ruger Ruger Ruger
Ruger: 5 yr. old black and tan male. Neutered, docked tail and cropped ears. 12-13lb. Fully vetted. Owner give up.
"I have been in my foster home for 2 weeks now. My foster mom says I am very handsome and I stike a good pose for pictures cos I love to watch the birds out our big window. I have 4 small brothers and 1 large brother in my home and I get along with everyone. There is a cat in my house. My mom says I wouldn't hurt it, I just want to chase it. I do well at feeding time by waiting my turn for my bowl to be put down. I love getting in line for doggie treats and always mind my manners. I am housebroken and have not had any accidents since I have been here. I sleep in my crate at night. Mom comes and gets all of us about 5 am so we can all snuggle in bed before it's time to get up. I think I'd like to sleep in bed all the time if I find a new home that wouldn't mind. I do not go in my kennel when we are left at home by ourselves. I probably wouldn't mind going to my kennel, but I don't have any bad habits like chewing or having accidents, so I haven't had to stay in it. I do have a funny habit of growling or "talking" My mom says I am "opinionated". I think it comes from having small children in my old home where I had to stand my ground so they wouldn't pick on me. I would do best in a home without children. I seem to be a real man's dog too. Love to curl up next to him. I go outside on a very long lead line and come right back in when called."

"Hi, my name is Boomer, Bahbahbah Boomer, or Boom Boom. I am a happy happy boy! Why? Well, when I first came into IMPS Rescue, they told me my leg was going to have to be cut off, I was so scared, but, then we went to another Vet, who went straight to the big guy at Ohio State University Vet University. The Top guy said, do some physical therapy, walking and swimming in the bathtub, and wheelbarrows. And guess what! I get to keep my leg! I will always walk & run a little funny, but that does not slow me down what so ever! I love love to run and play, and being only 10 months old, I like to do this a whole bunch. Toys and Tugging, growling, and playing are the highlights of my day. Pretty good on my housebreaking, I have a doggie door I use to do my business. I want to be adopted, by a great family with a fenced yard, maybe some younglings to play with me, and I would really like another doggie to play with me. Fill out an application & let my foster Mom know that I would be perfect for you."

My foster mom and my other friends in my foster home have shown me how to be a great dog. I still get a little scared at first of new people, but I quickly adjust and love to be held. I like to snuggle in bed at night and play in the yard during the day. I am a great hunter, but have not caught anything yet. I like to go after bunnies, birds, squirrels, and cats. I get along with other dogs. If there are small children who might grab at me, I would need sometime to get used to that. I love going for rides in the car and going on walks. If you have a place in your heart and home for a sweet dog, then contact my foster mom. Thanks Minnie."

SC
SC Ferdie Ferdie Ferdie
Ferdinand: 2 yr old black & tan male, neutered, undocked tail and uncropped ears. 15.8 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
Ferdie is a black and tan, all natural min pin with a white chest and the cutest white tip on his tail! He is our resident "baby bear" and a regional favorite. Ferdie is quiet for the most part, but he is coming out! He enjoys sitting on the dog lawn chairs, basking in the sun, and surveying the play yard and other dogs. He does his patrol along the fence to chase off evil squirrels and possible "angry birds." He thrives on predictable routine and knowing what is expected of him. He actually seems proud to have his own den among the crew, going in for food & for quiet time and leaving for recess. He likes to lay with the other min pins. He use to try and hide because he didn't want to be seen. Now when everyone is getting pets and love he wants his too. His submissiveness and sometimes fear are stronger than usual but doesn't bolt or nip. So we are giving him all the room he needs to approach us on his own, and we see progress. When sitting on the swing outside he will jump up and curl up at the end of the swing. He loves to swing! Ferdie likes to sit on the stool next to his foster mom. Ferdie does walk well on a leash without pulling as long as he doesn't spot a squirrel or a cat. Ferdie is still leery of strangers but is doing much better!! He will take treats from them. On family day when we are all watching tv, Ferdie will jump up on the couch and lay next to us! He currently is staying with our 4 min pins and another foster. He is a sweet boy and will take a little time to get comfortable but if you take the time and have patience, love and treats, Ferdie will become your friend. If Ferdie tugs at your heartstrings and you'd like to continue trust-building, the loving bond between this rescued dog and his rescuer will be immensely rewarding!! Ferdie WILL require a fence!
Note: Ferdie is located in Summerville, SC.

SC Coco Chanel Coco Chanel Coco Chanel
Coco Chanel: 5-6 yr old chocolate and tan female, spayed, docked tail and uncropped ears. 10", 13.2 lb. Fully vetted. Owner give-up.
Coco Chanel is a good-looking girl with a rich colored chocolate and tan coat (Godiva, eat your heart out!) and tall perky ears. She is quite shy, but once she is familiar with you, you're her BFF! She loves your lap, and will come up to examine your nose and ears. She is so excited to be there, she'll pat your shoulders several times doing her best imitation of a purr, and look around & over them before she snuggles into your neck. Coco Chanel is crate trained, and reasonably housetrained as long as she is taken out regularly and isn't scared. She may have occasional accidents until she is comfortable with your home. She is currently a few pounds overweight but on a diet and getting her exercise, and must retain a trim figure to avoid stress to a repaired hernia. To our dismay, this fine, loving girl has had too many hard experiences with people. Her reactions are fear-driven, and she is quite uncomfortable around men and large open spaces. Coco Chanel must have a crate-den for her safe place, some chairs tall enough for her to sit under around people, and a secure fenced yard is mandatory. She can only be adopted to experienced minpin owners with patience and compassion, who understand fears and know how to build trust, doggie-style. Her relationship with you will be tremendously rewarding.
Note: Coco Chanel is located in Summerville, SC - and we will not fly this girl.

Gage is crate trained and almost completely house trained and with a continued schedule will be completely trained very quickly.

He is very smart and learns new things very quickly. This boy absolutely LOVES toys. Gage can and will scale a baby gate if it separates him from his person. Gage's favorite thing is to lay in the sun on the deck and soak up the warmth. He would love a family to call his own, preferably with a playmate and no young children.

SC Coco Bean Coco Bean
Coco Bean: 3-5 yr old chocolate male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 12", 12 lb. Fully vetted.
Coco Bean is a young, active, energetic chocolate and tan minpin with an interesting spray of individual gray hairs across his back, but none on his face or paws. He came to us from a chain link run, and he had no clue, good or bad, about people. He was very shy and used to dodge or hide, but after several months of living with us, his inner mischievous minpin has come out - he loves to jump up next to me on the swing and give kisses, does the minpin spin for treats, and instead of jumping up in front of me, he jumps up and down behind me following me in the door, through the kitchen, and to his crate and food bowl. Thank goodness I don't have to get in first! Coco Bean is crate-trained, leash-trained, reasonably house-trained if let out often enough. He tends to ignore other dogs, but has a prey drive, so cats may not appreciate him. A previous party in his life said he was doggie-door trained, but we do not have one. He is wary around strangers and has a tendency to run, so he would benefit from a patient, experienced minpin owner. Coco Bean is high energy and doesn't stay in one place very long. We don't know how he is with children, but he may accidentally push a young child down in his enthusiasm. A secure fenced yard is mandatory to let him run off that energy.
Note: Coco Bean is located in Charlotte, NC - and we will not fly this boy.

He weighs 8 lbs, has natural ears and a very short docked tail (hence the name Stubby!). He is house-training on a schedule. Stubby is a bit of a bolter, he came in uncomfortable around sudden movement and nippy if grabbed unexpectedly. We do not recommend children in his forever home, but we can see his fear of being "caught" is getting much better - he trusts us more, he'll stand at the door of his crate and wait for us to pick him up! He was a former breeder kept in a cage too much, he is fearful out in the open and will run extremely fast around and around the fenced yard. Stubby loves to be distracted with a playmate and especially loves his Angry Birds ball - he can self-entertain for hours with it!

Tootsie is a beautiful 6yr old, chocolate, spayed female and weighs about 9.5 lbs. She is up-to-date on vaccinations, micro-chipped and on Heartworm prevention. She has a docked tail and natural ears. Tootsie is a cuddler extraordinaire! As far as she's concerned, you can pet her forever! She'll even reach out and pull your hand to her! She has been blind from birth and has cataracts from juvenile diabetes. Her blood sugar and weight are and have been perfectly normal, and she is in good health, the cataracts are small and unchanged. Tootsie navigates very well, stairs and all, and is uncommonly well-trained: voice-trained, leash trained and completely housetrained. She even potties on command! Her sight loss hasn't slowed her down a bit, she is quite independent and prefers to navigate on her own. Tootsie is adorable when she senses you coming and gets in play-position, bouncing in a little circle. She'll go to a door and let you know she wants to go out or in. But her favorite place to snooze is under the covers with you! Tootsie is concerned about other dogs but has done well around a small quiet dog and another blind dog, but she doesn't want to share your bed with anyone but you. She can be underfoot at times and would do best with no small children and a quiet home.
If you are interested in Tootsie, we ask that you fill out an adoption application and ask for Tootsie!!

"My name is Rusty. I am a 1 yr old red, neutered male. I am up to date on all shots, micro-chipped and on monthly heartworm preventative. I used to live in a cage at a puppy mill. Not fun. I'm now living the good life with my foster Dad and 3 foster brothers but I'm still not too trusting of strangers. I love playing with my foster brothers and all my toys. Tug of war and alligator mouth are my favorites. I've learned a lot since I came to live with my foster Dad. I learned how to navigate steps. I didn't like grass at first but now I love to run and play chase in the back yard now. I've also found my voice and like hearing it. I like going for walks with my foster brothers but not so much by myself. There's still too many scary things to go too far without them. I love to snuggle, I come when called (most of the time) and kennel on command (most of the time so long as a biscuit is involved). I am not house broken however if you take me outside often that's not too much of a problem. I just need lots of love, patience and time to learn all this new stuff."

"Hi, my name is Madison, but you can call me Maddy. Pleased to meet you. I'd like to tell you a little about myself. Yes, for starters, I am 9 years young and I am vision impaired (my former owners did not take very good care of me, but lucky for me, my foster mom rescued me). I can see still see shadows and the only time it bothers me, is when the sunlight hits my eyes and I get lost in the back yard but when my foster mom calls me, I come running. Trust me, I can still find my food bowl and if you give me a stuffed animal, I will run and play keep away with you. I love playing ball, tug of war, and of course cuddling is an Olympic sport for me. I love nothing more than to lay next to you or in your lap while you watch TV. I love car rides, long or short, and will sit or lie down and snooze until we reach our destination. Did I mention I am President of the Neighborhood Watch Group and the Welcoming Committee? That's right, I will alert you when someone comes to the door and will welcome them with open paws. Yes, I do have my faults and what min pin doesn't. I don't like to be crated, but you don't have to crate me as I won't make in your house, as I am also President of the National Federation for the Backyard Fertilization Club. Yep, I'll always go the door to let you know when I have to water and fertilize the lawn. The back end business is always done outdoors. And last but not least, I will allow you to sleep with me but just to make it clear, I am Vice President of Bed Hogs Unlimited. My foster mom is President. (ha-ha) If you want to adopt, please fill out an application at www.minpinrescue.org/home.html. I'll be waiting for you."
Notes from foster mom: Madison is a sweet girl, but due to her vision loss, she can startle easily and is not recommended for children, The ideal home for Madison would be one with a mature person and someone who is home more often. Madison can over eat and needs to stay on a regimented diet and needs to stay on eye drops the rest of her life.

TN Debra Debra Debra
Debra: 3.5 yr old stag red female, 15lb. Spayed and up to date on vaccinations.
Isn't that the sweetest face you ever saw? Oh my she is adorable and looks deceptively angelic BUT... well Debra thinks she should let every stranger know to keep their hands off her until she invites them. Snarky is what we call it. If you love that attribute in a min pin, Debra would be perfect for you. She absolutely loves her family and is an angel with them. She is very smart girl who is a complete lap dog. Debra is happiest when she is getting all the love and attention. She would be fine as an only dog but also gets along well with other dogs and cats. Debra would do best in a home that does not get many visitors. She does not like people she doesn't know to approach her. Once she decides you are okay, she will demand that you pet her and let her kiss your face. Debra would do best in a quiet home without children. She is house trained and crate trained and will even sleep in her crate without complaint. She will be a very loving and devoted companion.
Note: Debra is located in Nashville, TN - and we will not fly this girl.

Mollie Claire: 4-5 yr old spayed red female, docked tail and cropped ears. 16 lb., spayed and fully vetted.
Mollie is a beautiful girl with soulful eyes. She has just blossomed since coming into foster. She is a happy girl and full of energy, friendly and gets along with other dogs and cats. She loves to play, go for walks and rides well in a car. When she isn't playing she enjoys lounging in front of the fireplace or snuggling on the couch. She likes both men and women and she especially likes her 8 year old, two-legged foster sister. Molly sometimes needs encouragement to go outside to potty, especially if it is cold or wet, but is doing better all the time. She will also use a potty pad if one is available. She can be cautious of strangers but once she does know you, she'll be your girl for life! Mollie would do best in a home with a fenced yard and would love to have another puppy partner to snuggle with.

George: 4 yr old, 8lbs, chocolate male, docked tail and natural ears, neutered, up to date on vaccinations. Recent dental.
George came into rescue not knowing any of the joys of being a dog. Everything is new to him. His new foster brothers and sisters are showing him the ropes but there's a lot to learn. but he is very smart boy. Already he has developed a friendship with one of the other dogs and follows him everywhere; learning to use the dog door, going potty outside and peeing on trees! What a life for a dog. After his dental he was much more relaxed and has been seeking out petting and loving. Yesterday he looked at me and wagged his tail. George has a new purpose in life....to be loved by his own human family. Wouldn't you love to be the family taking this journey with him discovering a whole new joyous world?

"Hi, everybody! My name is CC! My foster mom says that stands for Chocolate Cutie. I've been living here at my new foster home for one whole day and already I have them telling me about how I'm a good boy and SO ADORABLE. Can you believe it? They already love me!
Wanna know what my favorite thing EVER is? Playing with my ball. I like to carry it around everywhere I go. In fact, did you know I used to be a champion at a doggy-sport called Flyball? I would train and compete with other dogs and we'd run and jump and catch the ball. So fun! I can't compete anymore though because I'm getting older, so they said I'm "retired." Whatever! I still love to play and run and play fetch.
I also like to snuggle and give kisses, especially in the morning. I know how to walk on a leash like a gentleman, and I'm completely crate trained and house trained.
I would love to have one or two grown-up humans I can claim as my own. I get a little bit jealous sometimes, so little children might not be the best friends for me. Maybe you're "retired" too and want a new little friend? I'm awesome at being friends!"

TN Tillie Tillie Tillie
Tillie: 5 yr old black & tan female, spayed, docked tail and cropped ears. 14", 20 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
The name Tillie means "powerful battler" which is a great fit for this stunning girl. With her cropped ears and docked tail, she is the epitome of the fierce min-pin look. However, as the old saying goes, you can't judge a book by its cover because Tillie is a love bug and craves attention from everyone. She doesn't know a stranger and is a rare min-pin that doesn't even bark when first meeting someone new. She oozes confidence and immediately greets newcomers for some love. Miss Tillie enjoyed too much food and treats and not enough exercise in her former home. That will soon be a distant memory though because this dog loves to walk, run, and play so she will shed those extra pounds quickly. Tillie is definitely an alpha female in regards to other dogs and gets along well with submissive companions. She crates well and is doing good with house-training but needs a steady potty schedule. If you want a gorgeous, fierce looking dog who loves to snuggle as well as workout with you then Tillie is the one.

"Hey Dog Lovers! I'm Mercedes and this is my sister Lexus! Don't let adopting two dogs scare you because my mom tells us all the time that she thinks we are so quiet and easy going that we just blend right in! We came into rescue because my family came under hards times. We are liter mates and have been together for over 5 years now so we would really really like to stay together. We love each other so much and just can't stand the thought of separating. So much so that we even sleep in the same crate. Once I tell you about us you won't want to look any further :) We love going for walks and our foster mom is surprised how well we walk on the leash! She tells us we are so cute all the time because we are always snuggling and cleaning each others faces. We love sunbathing, but don't most min pins?! We are fully house trained and come tell you when we need to go to the bathroom. We respond to our names and will come when you call us, but we are still working on other commands. We especially love people when they want to love and snuggle with us. Did I tell you how much we like to burrow under the covers? We are great with other dogs and mostly just keep to ourselves. Well gotta go sniff around in the backyard check back later for more pictures, videos and bio updates! Paws (peace) and Love my fellow dog lovers!"

Mikey is a very active and happy little guy. He loves other dogs and is eager to meet new people, but he can be a little shy and won't come up to someone without a little coaxing sometimes. I think that comes from the time that he was on his own on the streets before showing up at my home.

This beautiful girl is healthy, gentle, and loves to cuddle and to sleep with or near her person. She is alert, but not barky. Demi practically dances when she sees a leash for a walk. She gets along with other dogs, even grouchy ones. Demi and Carl are very affectionate and love to tussle and chew on each other. They are best buddies. They make an excellent pair and, if together, would not be lonely when their person was away.
She has small scars near her ears - from sometthing in her past. She was rescued as she gave birth to her babies, Cora, Pardner, Christi and Pecos. This special girl deserves a good home with kind people.
Note: Demi is located in Kingsville TX (nearest airport for shipping is Laredo TX) - and if necessary, Demi could go by plane at her adopter's expense. Her foster parents will help get her to her forever home if by car.

VA
VA Taz Taz Taz
TAZ: estimated 4 yr old black & rust male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 15", 10 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
TAZ is a bouncy, busy boy who is always on the go! He races around the yard at top speed, always on the move. We are working on his socialization skills and will begin some obedience work too. TAZ was found as a stray and taken to the local shelter, which was a very scary time for him. Since he has been in foster care he has settled down and has begun to trust more. TAZ needs a family who will be sure to provide daily exercise for him, and will continue his obedience lessons. He is a gorgeous Pin who will entertain his family with his high spirits and spunk!
Update: We think that Taz had a rough early life, as he sometimes gets scared and needs a lot of time and reassurance to feel better. For this reason, Taz needs an experienced, quiet, and patient family to help him learn to be brave and stay calm. He does fine with other small dogs but will not be placed in a home with children. If you think you are the special family that Taz is looking for, please write and let us know.
Note: TAZ is located in Newark DE - and we will not fly this boy.

Dion: 5 yr old black & tan male, to be neutered in the first week of March, docked tail and uncropped ears. 14", 16 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
Dion was an unclaimed stray at the local SPCA. He is a bigger MinPin who loves to play with his toys. He fetches them and is getting better at letting them go with a "leave it" command. He has learned the word "outside" and goes to the door now when he hears that word. He has also just learned to give his paw on command. Dion is a mellow dog but needs continued help in overcoming his fear and his guarding behavior with toys and food. He lives with other dogs and he is okay with them. Every day he makes progress toward overcoming his past and with a strong human leader who is willing to give time and patience, he has the ability to become a wonderful companion. Dion will not be placed in a home with children under the age of 12 years.
Note: Dion is located in Dover DE - and we will not fly this boy.

Prince: 4 yr old black & tan male, neutered, undocked tail and uncropped ears. 14", 16 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
"Hi! My name is Prince, or sometimes my foster mom calls me PrinceCee or mr. P or just P. I like activity and must be in the middle of All activities, because you see everything that goes on concerns me. I am looking for my forever home where I am the center of attention. I must be petted and have my tummy rubbed quite frequently. I don't mind submissive girl dogs as long as they don't interfere with my getting all the attention, and they are willing to follow my lead. I like to stay busy and will walk on a lead if I have to so I can explore everything. I love to ride in the car because I must see everything. I like to bark when something is exciting like people coming to visit or the neighbors dog is out. I've been described as chunky but my foster mom says it's all muscle and that I'm just a stocky guy."
Here's my foster mom....
Prince is quite a character and would benefit from lots of attention as he is after all a Prince, with a mouse face and teddy bear fur. His bark is mouse like sorta a squeak/bark. He would not do well with small children as he does not like to be picked up or have his feet messed with. He can be very protective of his feet, but loves to lie next to you. He has thick fur and would benefit from a weekly brushing. A bow tie would fit his personality. He poops on command and will go in a crate if you tell him to.
Note: Prince is located in Basye, VA - and we will not fly this boy.

Gentle Ben: estimated 6 yrs old black & tan male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 16", 24 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
"Hello, my new name is Gentle Ben, because I am a big boy --- a very nice big boy. I am happy to be out of the shelter where they took me when I was out all alone. But what I really want is a home where I can stay furever! I walk nicely on a leash, I stay in my crate quietly, and I know where to do my 'business'. What more could you want? Unlike my smaller relations, I am not a hyper boy, and I do not bounce!! Please pick me, you will be so happy you did.... and so will I!!"
We have learned that Ben is actually a German Pinscher, a bigger cousin of the Miniature Pinscher. We have also learned that Ben gets fearful of new situations and needs to be introduced slowly and feel secure and safe. He does fine with smaller dogs, not sure about bigger ones as he is the biggest we have in his foster home! He knows how to sit, shake paw, dance around in a circle, and lie down......and prefers to do his tricks for a treat! He is housetrained, does not chew or get into people things, and will stay in a large crate if he must. He needs an experienced adopter who can provide the leadership and security that Ben needs. No children.
Note: Gentle Ben is located in Dover, DE - and we will not fly this boy.

I am crate trained and house-trained, and really need a furever home of my own."

Litte Man Irvin: 8 yr old chocolate/tan male, neutered, docked tail and cropped ears. 10 lbs. Irvin was found wondering the streets of Wisconsin, and turned into the Humane Society as a stray. At just over 7lbs. he was underweight, skin & bones and only shadows for eyesight his personality shined through his hard times and is now looking for that second chance in life.

Loves attention, can be an occasional snuggle bug, has a spunky attitude, perky personality and determination to go and do it all. With spring flowers and summer air he is in search for a lovable furever home to call his own.

WI Autumn Autumn Autumn
Autumn: BD 8/21/2003 black & tan female, spayed, docked tail and cropped ears. 12", 9 lb. Fully vetted.
Autumn spent the beginning of her life locked in a cage too small for her producing litter after litter. A MO breeding facility sold her at auction to a WI breeder last fall condemning Autumn to more years of neglect. Thankfully the WI person changed her mind and told a rescue volunteer that she was just going to turn them out into the woods to fend for themselves (Cricket, Bambi, Tashi, Autumn and Farley). Stepping forward to take the dogs the rescuer was able to get them to safety and on to MN for a chance at a better tomorrow. Autumn, like Cricket, is making up for lost time!! She is shy to approach at first but once she warms up playing is her thing. Autumn is still learning about laps and cuddles but does seek attention once she settles in. Autumn is learning by mimicking other dogs in her foster home so a confident playmate would be a plus and may be necessary since she's never been without canine companionship. Autumn is crate trained and will keep her crate clean but is still learning about house training ~ she's doing well but will require some patience. If you are interested in showing Autumn just how good life gets please fill out an adoption application.

WI Nitro Nitro: 3 yr old black & tan male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 14", 21 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
Nitro is a big, handsome, rugged boy that loves to be the entertainment. He likes snuggling, playing keep away......oh, and snuggling. Nitro does great with house training once on a schedule and crates but vocally can protest crating at times so apartments aren't his thing. Nitro is appropriately named because he's just a ball of energy but no aggression, no destructive tendencies or issues with other dogs. Nitro does have very high pray drive so cats should be ruled out. He lives with cats and will leave them if watched and worked with but he would easily forget that if a chance arose and be too rough with them so better safe then sorry. Nitro is a love and a very fun dog to have around. He is good with kids but at first he can seem scary because he gets so over zealous about PLAYING!! If this guy sounds like he would fit in your lifestyle then apply today! Nitro deserves all the snuggles he has waiting for him in his forever home so we need to get him there!

Dion was an unclaimed stray at the local SPCA. He is a bigger MinPin who loves to play with his toys. He fetches them and is getting better at letting them go with a "leave it" command. He has learned the word "outside" and goes to the door now when he hears that word. He has also just learned to give his paw on command. Dion is a mellow dog but needs continued help in overcoming his fear and his guarding behavior with toys and food. He lives with other dogs and he is okay with them. Every day he makes progress toward overcoming his past and with a strong human leader who is willing to give time and patience, he has the ability to become a wonderful companion. Dion will not be placed in a home with children under the age of 12 years.
Note: Dion is located in Dover DE - and we will not fly this boy.

WV Prince Prince Prince
Prince: 4 yr old black & tan male, neutered, undocked tail and uncropped ears. 14", 16 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
"Hi! My name is Prince, or sometimes my foster mom calls me PrinceCee or mr. P or just P. I like activity and must be in the middle of All activities, because you see everything that goes on concerns me. I am looking for my forever home where I am the center of attention. I must be petted and have my tummy rubbed quite frequently. I don't mind submissive girl dogs as long as they don't interfere with my getting all the attention, and they are willing to follow my lead. I like to stay busy and will walk on a lead if I have to so I can explore everything. I love to ride in the car because I must see everything. I like to bark when something is exciting like people coming to visit or the neighbors dog is out. I've been described as chunky but my foster mom says it's all muscle and that I'm just a stocky guy."
Here's my foster mom....
Prince is quite a character and would benefit from lots of attention as he is after all a Prince, with a mouse face and teddy bear fur. His bark is mouse like sorta a squeak/bark. He would not do well with small children as he does not like to be picked up or have his feet messed with. He can be very protective of his feet, but loves to lie next to you. He has thick fur and would benefit from a weekly brushing. A bow tie would fit his personality. He poops on command and will go in a crate if you tell him to.
Note: Prince is located in Basye, VA - and we will not fly this boy.

WV Gentle Ben Gentle Ben
Gentle Ben: estimated 6 yrs old black & tan male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 16", 24 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
"Hello, my new name is Gentle Ben, because I am a big boy --- a very nice big boy. I am happy to be out of the shelter where they took me when I was out all alone. But what I really want is a home where I can stay furever! I walk nicely on a leash, I stay in my crate quietly, and I know where to do my 'business'. What more could you want? Unlike my smaller relations, I am not a hyper boy, and I do not bounce!! Please pick me, you will be so happy you did.... and so will I!!"
We have learned that Ben is actually a German Pinscher, a bigger cousin of the Miniature Pinscher. We have also learned that Ben gets fearful of new situations and needs to be introduced slowly and feel secure and safe. He does fine with smaller dogs, not sure about bigger ones as he is the biggest we have in his foster home! He knows how to sit, shake paw, dance around in a circle, and lie down......and prefers to do his tricks for a treat! He is housetrained, does not chew or get into people things, and will stay in a large crate if he must. He needs an experienced adopter who can provide the leadership and security that Ben needs. No children.
Note: Gentle Ben is located in Dover, DE - and we will not fly this boy.

WV Yogi Yogi Yogi
Yogi: 4 yr old chocolate male, neutered, undocked tail and uncropped ears. 14", 16 lb. Fully vetted.
"I came to IMPS because my owners had a bad thing happen and our home burned. I was injured a bit physically, but more so emotionally since I lost my family that day. I am recovering nicely at my foster parents home, I have playmates that I like to be around, and I love to have attention! I think maybe I need a bit of re-assurance that I am okay. I love being cuddled and I love sleeping in late under the covers while my foster parents get ready for what they call work. I am crate trained and house-trained, and really need a furever home of my own."
Note: Yogi is located in Gambrills, MD - and we will not fly this boy.
