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 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: 8 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.

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.
Note: Jerry is located in Columbus, OH - and we will not fly this boy.

Minnie: 4-5 yr old black & tan female, spayed, docked tail and uncropped ears. 9", 11 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
"Hi, my name is Minnie. IMPS has been a great place for me to learn to spread my wings. I was very scared when I came here and didn't know how to be a min pin. 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."

I am a very happy, loving dog in search of a nice home where I can play and be loved in my later years. I am a little unsure at first, but just give me a little bit of time and I will become your new best friend. I like to go on walks and be outside. My favorite thing to do is cuddle under a blanket.

OH Cody Cody
Cody: 5 yr old chocolate male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 10", 11 lb. Owner give-up.
Meet Cody. He has come to IMPS because his owner could not care for him anymore. Cody is a very loving dog. His favorite place is on a lap. He is a little scared at first when he meets new people, but he quickly settles in and is on their lap. He likes to sleep in bed at night. He is learning to be under the covers like most min pins. He listens, gets along well with other dogs, and people. He may growl when another dog tries to share the lap he is on, but once that dog settles down he is fine. I think he does not like to be stepped on. Cody is house broken and crate trained. He deserves a loving home, if you feel that you would like to give a great home to Cody please contact his foster mom.
Note: we will not fly this boy.

OH Winston: 3-5 yr old black & tan male, docked tail and uncropped ears. 10", 11.5 lb. Rescued from shelter.
Meet Winston. He is a great dog. He loves to be outside. He likes going on walks and being around people. He has figured out that laying under a blanket is the best place to rest. He has also figured out that he loves sleeping in bed at night. He is slow to rise in the morning, but with a little coaxing he will get up and head outside. He get along well with kids, dogs and cats. He is crate trained, but will not go into it willingly. He will bark when he first goes in, but settles in after that. He is also fine to be left out of a crate when you leave. Things do need to be picked up because in true min pin fashion, he will get into it. He is slowly becoming a lap dog and loves to be petted and loved on. If you think you can give Winston a great home, contact his foster mom. Thanks.
Note: we will not fly this boy.

"Good Morning,
My name is Felicity and I am ready to start my search to find a family to love me and give me a safe haven. My life has not been the best, I am only a year old and had a couple of babies already. The babies are ready to start the search for a new family as well.
As you can see from my pictures I am a beautiful red girl with just a little white to make me a little different, but I am full of love and ready for a better life.
I am housetrained, crate trained, but I am shy and will need a little time to warm up to a new person. Oh when I do warm up.. I just want to be with you all the time. My foster mom will tell you I enjoy car rides, and going for walks, but I do pull a little because I am eager to have new adventures. If you are looking for a sweet girl and want to help a dog that has not had much in her young life.. Felicity is waiting for you. Would you please consider opening your heart to her?"

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. This impish little sweetie enjoys quiet play interacting with you, and warms my heart when she looks straight into my eyes with trust. 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. 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 for her safe place, some chairs tall enough for her to sit under around people, and a secure fenced yard. She must retain a trim figure to avoid stress to a repaired hernia. 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 reward you ten-fold!
Note: Coco Chanel is located in Charlotte NC - and we will not fly this girl.

SC Sparky Sparky Sparky
Sparky: 6-7 yr old black & tan male, neutered, docked tail and cropped ears. 10 lb. Fully vetted. Owner give-up.
Sparky is our dignified little black and tan man. He grew up with a sibling and both were unaccustomed to being picked up. So he considers himself above all that, but once in a while he forgets and goes into a play bow! He's not real sure what to do with it but he'll figure it out! Sparky loves to carry a stick around the yard, bowing his neck and high-stepping like a show-off in front of us and other dogs. He is not fond of being touched suddenly, and wouldn't be a match for young children. He is reactive when challenged by other dogs but otherwise plays well. Sparky is completely house-trained, crate-trained and leash trained, easy on the home, comes when called, and is quiet. What more can you ask for!!
Note: Sparky is located in Charlotte, NC.

FloJo: 1.5 yr old black & tan female, spayed, docked tail and uncropped ears. 14 lb. Fully vetted.
FloJo is a tall, fit, slender girl with a very silky black & tan coat. Named after an Olympic competitor, she was hungry and chasing a deer across the highway when the deer cleared the cement barrier and she couldn't. A good Samaritan stopped, opened the car door, she jumped in and went off to a vet. FloJo is completely healthy, strong, and gaining much needed weight. She loves everybody, knows no strangers! She is high energy, has actually created her own banked track around our dog yard, and no dog can keep up. They wait to ambush her but she is so agile she turns on a dime, leaps like a deer and leaves 'em in the dust! FloJo is mischievous and high spirited but willing to please. She's learning not to jump on people or pull on the leash. She isn't a good candidate for children but would love a running companion and fenced yard.
Note: FloJo is located in Charlotte NC.

Goliath: 2 yr old blue & tan male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 10 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
Goliath is a blue and tan boy with an uncommonly soft coat that has sable undertones, a white belly and white toes all the way around. He is not at all large, so we've nicknamed him Golly! Golly is house-trained, happy to be with a small two-member household and cooperative. He walks well on leash and is easy on the home. He is slow to trust at first and is very uncomfortable around strangers and children. Sadly he can't tell us what caused this, but he seems to have lived in a home and takes to men more easily. Golly is loving, willing to please, gives a tiny kiss in your lap to greet you, and is quite protective. He can only go to a home experienced with minpins and his trust issues.
Note: Goliath is located in Charlotte NC - and we will not fly this boy.

Rockin' Rambo is a tall, slender black & tan minpin with a dark rich coat and a personality everyone will love! He came into rescue heartworm positive after living on a chain in a pen in the backyard. His treatment has concluded and he now tests negative. Rambo is the sweetest boy, knows no strangers, loves to be loved on, and has no clue that he is a little tall for your lap. He tries to make himself small so he can stay there! Rambo doesn't care about a fenced yard, but he will climb out if you leave the yard, even for a moment! He has been gentle on our home, is crate trained and potty trained. He goes out on a schedule and does his business within minutes as soon as he is put in an exercise pen. He enjoys play with other dogs but you most of all!

Zoey: 10 yr old (DOB 06/30/06) black & tan female, spayed, docked tail and uncropped ears. 8.8 lb. Owner give-up.
Zoey is a tiny little armful of quintessential minpin! She does the minpin spin for food, play bows, and hops when she sees you. You'll always get a tiny kiss on the cheek when you pick her up, and she happily follows you around the house. Zoey is missing an eye, long ago healed, we believe from an encounter with another dog. She is the first to challenge a dog she doesn't know but will settle quickly when called on. She will be less defensive as an only dog, and, due to lack of sight on one side, would do best if not around the commotion and quick movements of young children. She is a happy, healthy, energetic little girl, and a really nice companion!

TN
TN Debra Debra Debra
Debra: 4 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 but if you are stranger you might get bit. 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. The most difficult thing with Debra is that she is a barker and does not like strangers. She will nip at them and at times try to bite. 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.

TN George George George
George: Approx 5 yr old, 8lbs, chocolate male, docked tail and natural ears, neutered, up to date on vaccinations. Recent dental. He is a very cute and small dog.
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.
Notes from foster mom: George exhibits signs of being a "puppy mill" dog meaning he has some odd behaviors that may be life-long. He absolutely cannot tolerate being crated for any length of time. I put him in a crate at night but he wakes up in the night and will bark to be let out. He then will sleep on my heated sun room. He seems to prefer dogs over people and will probably always need the company of dogs preferably one that is well trained to show George how things are to be done. My suggestion for a future home is for the family to be very kind, loving and patient, experienced in working with socializing a dog like George and have a fenced yard.
Wouldn't you love to be the family taking this journey with him discovering a whole new joyous world?

He wants to be with his people all the time, he is a great lap warmer, and he has keen ears for any unauthorized sounds or movements making him a vigilant watchdog. Boston is a very sensitive and vocal dog with a whole repertoire of sounds for expressing himself. Unfortunately, he did not have much training or exercise in his former home but is eager to please those he loves and takes corrections like a champ. He would do best in a home that can provide a stable routine with an experienced min-pin owner who can continue his training and exercise in order to help him lose a few pounds. Boston was raised with children who played rough with him teaching him to mouth and nip at hands so he cannot be in a home with small children as he doesn't know he own strength. He is learning to play with toys would love a home that has a friendly doggie or two that can show him the ropes and be his playmate. This cutie pie has the typical energy level of a min-pin that matches the intensity of the family. He is happy to walk, play, hike, and run with you then contently veggie out on the couch with a blanket and a movie. He rides well in the car, is laid back for grooming activities and is currently working on crate-training and proper leash etiquette. Boston is a super affectionate canine who is excited about finding a family to love.
Note: Boston is located in Elizabethton, TN.

TX Red Red Red
Red: 3 yr old black & rust male, undocked tail and uncropped ears. 8", 7 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
"My name is Red. I am 3 years old. I am a very small cute boy. I stand 8 inches tall and weigh about 7 pounds. I am part Min Pin and part wire hair terrier. I have a very cute scruffy look. I am just a little couch potato. I love to lay on the couch and watch tv with you.
Me and my buddy John (Beagle mix) belonged to a man and woman for all of our lives. Then one day they put our harnesses on us and took us in the car. We thought we were going for a walk. However, they took us to the shelter and told the people they didn't want us anymore. They didn't have time to take care of us. The shelter was full and told them that they would put us down but they couldn't keep us in the shelter. Our owners said that was fine. We were so scared. We didn't know what was happening.
The shelter posted our pictures and the nice people from IMPS came and rescued us....they even rescued by buddy John even though he isn't a Min Pin. My foster Dad called our old owners a bunch of really bad names. If I wasn't so grateful, I would wash his mouth out.
Please check out my pictures and let my foster Dad know if you want a little bit of nothing to lay on the couch with and watch tv. I am no trouble. Honest.
Please also check out my buddy John. We do not have to be adopted together, but he needs a home too. Thank you."
Note: Red is located in Houston, Texas - and we will not fly this boy.

TX Bowser Bowser: 1 yr old black & tan male, neutered, undocked tail and uncropped ears. 18", 17 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
"Hi, my name is Bowser. I am neutered, up-to-date on shots, and weigh about 17 lbs. I think I may be mixed with a Beagle or hound or something, because I have a bit of bay sometimes when I bark, although I am not a big barker. I also rarely lick.
I have a white splash on my chest and some speckles on the ends of my feet, but otherwise my coloring is MinPin.
I'm a happy-go-lucky fellow and can sometimes be a goofball. But don't worry, I'm a smart boy.
I know how to sit, I come to you when you call me and I think I know how to shake your hand.
I was an owner give up, but I don't know why. Maybe they just didn't have time for me.
I am a good boy though, I figured out the dog door at my foster house very quickly, and I may be house trained.
I love to play with my 3 foster fur siblings, even though they're a lot smaller than me.
I sometimes guard the food bowl when eating, but it's nothing too major, and soon as you say my name, I chill.
I sleep throughout the night and would love to cuddle with you on the bed if you let me. I also love to veg out on the couch and do nothing.
If you get up in the middle of the night, I will follow you to the bathroom. In the morning, when you take your shower, I will lie right beside the shower, waiting on you to finish. I like to keep close tabs on my humans."
Note: Bowser is located in Frisco, TX.

TX Lucy Lucy: 2.5 to 3 yr old red female, spayed, docked tail and cropped ears. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
"Hi everyone! My name is Lucy and boy do I like to have a Ball. I am a red-colored, spayed, female (duh), part minpin and maybe part schnauzer and because of that I don't shed very much. I am a foot tall and am about 10 pounds of activity and fun. My tail is cropped, my ears are tall and pointy and my eyes are bright and yellow. I love to play and run and swim and play and run but, MOST OF ALL, I love to sit on your lap. Yep, that's my favorite thing, except for eating supper. I love sitting on your lap and eating supper...and going for walks and swimming at the lake and naps! Whew, that's a full day! I am 3 years old so and I have had some obedience training, and I know how to use a doggie door so I go outside to do my business. I was saved from certain death at a shelter, 45 minutes from the needle to be exact. Right now Iím just a temporary guest so I would really love to find my forever home. I get along great with other dogs (especially if they like to play) but I would be a great addition to a single-dog family. If you would like to adopt me, please complete an application at www.minpinrescue.org/home.html."

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.

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."

WI Irvin Irvin
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.

With the cataracts imparing his vision he can maneuver any home/room with only seeing shadows. 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.
