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.

Saved at the last minute! Kaylee was on the list to be euthanized the next day when in swoops our Rescue Angels from OK to OH with the help of our trucker volunteer, Kaylee is up for adoption. She is a a very nice little all natural girl, she does need work on her housetraining, but with a good schedule she will do fine. She loves the doggie door in and out in and out, she sticks her head in making sure everything is ok inside, then back out running around in the yard. She is a bit of an escape artist, and can climb a 4 ft gate in the house, so she must be watched, and leashed at the door also. She does well on the leash after getting rid of her initial excitement, is a little mouthy in play, and loves loves to give kisses. Kaylee needs some training, she likes to pull stuffing out of anything, especially toys, but she is a very smart girl and catches on quickly. If interested, please fill out an adoption application and contact her foster mom.

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. I live in Coshocton County right now."

OH Irene Irene: 3 yr old black & tan female, spayed, docked tail and natural ears. 9", 11 lb. Shots up-to-date.
Please meet Irene. She is the sweetest thing and loves to have all the attention. She came into rescue on the chunky side and is currently working on shedding the extra pounds. Irene loves to play with her squeaky toys! She enjoys a good cuddle and under the blankets next to you is her favorite place, but this doesn’t replace the good ol’ fashion lap.
Irene came into rescue with a condition commonly referred to as dry eye. This means she cannot produce tears on her own sufficiently for her eyes to stay lubricated. Her eyes have some cloudiness due to not having proper treatment. I am happy to say that after seeing an ophthalmologist and treatment her condition has improved, but this is a chronic condition that will need to be continuously treated to prevent her from losing her eyesight. Irene is a wonderful little dog that will just tug at your heart strings!

"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."

Moses is a 6 year old, 5lb 6oz 8" tall Black and Tan male . He sleeps most of the day and gets up to go to the bathroom, eat or get a drink of water. This is helpful because he does not like to go outside to go to the bathroom due to his allergies so if he gets up you know to bring him outside immediately. He is leased trained. He is crated all day and sleeps with me and all the other dogs at night and has no accidents. He gets attached to one person and does not let anyone else hold him except for that person. For this reason he needs a home with no children. He has severe allergies which is control with benedryl and using Vasoline to protect and moisturize his sensitive skin.

OR
OR Ginger Ginger: 5 yr old stag red female, spayed, docked tail and uncropped ears. 13", 17 lb. Fully vetted.
"Hi Everyone! My name is Ginger and I'm just as sweet and sassy as my name implies. I know that I'm classified as "special needs," but who doesn't have special needs, especially when it comes to lovin'? I've had a rough life for being only 5 years old and I don't remember much of it before I was rescued on a freeway ramp by a good Samaritan. I was then adopted to what seemed like the perfect home but something went terribly wrong and I found myself on the street again. I was lucky enough to be taken into a shelter before I was hurt, but it was obvious that I was not well. Since I was microchipped (whatever that means), the shelter was able to contact IMPS and a wonderful lady came and rescued me from that noisy shelter. After a visit to the doctor, it was discovered that I am diabetic and they set about getting me "regulated." I now feel great and I don't mind getting a shot after every meal. Oh, and I do have another small handicap. I am mostly blind from not having my diabetes diagnosed and treated early on. It doesn't slow me down, but does mean that I will stay close to you for guidance. All I really want is a home that will love me for my sweet, gentle nature and that won't mind attending to my small challenges. I have a lot of spunk and a lot of kisses left to give. I also get along well with other dogs. If you think you're ready to give me a chance to be your best lil' girl, please contact my foster mom."
Note from the Pacific Northwest coordinator: Please don't shy away from a diabetic dog if you think you may have the perfect warm spot for Ginger or another diabetic dog in need. I personally have a diabetic dog and the care is not that difficult. It does require sticking to a 12 hour schedule for feeding/injections, using a good quality food, and having periodic testing done as advised by your vet. Novalin N insulin can be used by most diabetic dogs and is available at Walmart for $24.95 per bottle and the bottle will last a minimum of one month.

SC
SC Madonna Madonna Madonna
Madonna is a 6 year old red female, spayed, docked tail, cropped ears, 7lbs, fully vetted, rescued from the shelter. This little girl is a hidden gem. She is very shy and reserved in new situations and with new people, but once she's comfortable, the laugh a minute, crazy min pin personality comes out. She loves to play with her min pin brother and snuggle on the couch with her foster mom. Her absolute favorite time is bed time as she adores getting to sleep with her foster family and snuggle down under the covers, but she is also completely crate trained and will sleep in a crate too. She is potty trained, but transitioning from a strictly kennel existence, does best with being taken out on a regular basis. She will need a patient and loving home that will give her the time she needs to adapt to her new surroundings and the payoff will be immense. She is not good with cats (or chickens or any other small animals - this girl is queen huntress!)
Madonna currently lives with another min pin and two larger dogs. She is most comfortable with the min pin and would do best with one other dog her size. She would also do best in a home without young children. She has a 14 year old human foster sister that she simply tolerates.
Note: She is located in Campobello, SC and we can fly this girl in a pet safe transport and appropriate temperatures.

Ferdie is a black and tan, all natural minpin 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, 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 seems upset when another dog gets in it but merely hangs back til they leave. His submissiveness and sometimes fear are stronger than usual - he shakes like a leaf and moves away when we approach him, 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. Its nothing to brag about, but he will approach us on the lawn swing for a treat and will stand still without shaking to let us pet him. He will yield to a leash when necessary and get up on the far end of a couch to join us for TV, surrounded by minpins. Its a little early to place him, but 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.
Note: Ferdie is located in Summerville, SC.

SC Angel Angel Angel
Angel: 5-6 yr old red female, spayed, docked tail and cropped ears. 14.6 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
Angel is a clear red minpin with white markings around her eyes that makes them look bright like an angel's! This girl is very sweet, loves people and other dogs, and knows no strangers. She's the quintessential minpin - greets you with bounces at the door, does the minpin spin for food, and croons when you pet her, She comes when called, sits when asked (especially for a tiny treat) and walks nicely on a leash. Angel has never been bred, and is 100% house-trained - she's a good communicator and will even use a jingle bell hung on a rope from the back door to let us know she needs to go out. She wants to be in the same room as her peeps, and is deeply content to be on our laps. Angel has a significant bow in her front leg. It looks like an old injury long healed, she learned to cope with it so long ago she doesn't notice it. She limps because one leg is shorter than the other. Don't miss this chance to give this happy, healthy, well-adjusted girl a forever home - apply and ask for Angel.
Note: Angel is located in Summerville, SC.

SC Spice Spice Spice
Spice: 5 yr old stag red female, spayed, docked tail and cropped ears. 10.4 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
Spice is a beautiful, well-bred, stag red minpin with a silky coat. She's attentive, affectionate and playful, glad to see us and content in a relatively contained, safe environment. Spice loves her foster mom, is welcoming but a little apprehensive around her foster dad. She thrives on a routine. She comes when called, going belly down when she gets to you, wagging her little nub of a tail furiously. When we pick her up she cuddles close, and we enjoy quiet evenings on the patio swing in the dog yard. She loves to explore the toy basket for something she hasn't discovered yet. Spice came to us from a cruelty case where she had been kept in a basement for an extended period of time and used for breeding. This needs to be said, to understand her personality & behaviors today. People are new to her, each one needs to gain her trust before her personality blooms with them. A good size crate is her den and safe place, with blankie and a worn Tshirt of yours. Spice is house & crate trained, tentative on a leash, but willing with someone she trusts (she'll ask you to pick her up several times.) She must have a secure fenced yard to continue to potty outside. Large spaces overwhelm her, so limit her access to the room you are in. Her forever guardians should have experience with skittish minpins and trust-building, and she will do better without the commotion of children. Spice gets along well with other dogs, we don't know about other pets. Once trusting and comfortable, she is calm, warm and a joy to have around.
Note: Spice is located in Charlotte NC.

TN Maddy Maddy Maddy
Madison: 9 yr old black and tan female, 13 lbs, docked tail natural ears, owner give up. AKC papers available
"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.

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!"

"Hello. My name is Hope. I was named Hope because I had none at the shelter. I was a severely abused dog who was never shown any kindness or love. I was yelled at, kicked, beaten, and chased to the point of being fearful of anyone approaching me. I was discarded like common trash. I ended up in the shelter and due to my very shy frightened personality, I was classified as unadoptable and therefore doomed to get the needle.. I never bit anyone or showed my teeth. I was simply terrified and froze any time anyone picked me up. I ran from anyone who approached me. I learned that lesson early. Run or you might get kicked.
Lucky for me, a nice guy from a Min Pin rescue saw me at the shelter and took pity on me despite the fact that I cowered in the corner of my cage. He was my Hope for a new beginning. He has not been discouraged with me and has always been kind and gentle. He was kind even though I was so scared on the way to his house that I used the restroom in the crate and stank up the car on the drive home. He was kind for the two hours while he patiently walked behind me until I was too tired to run anymore and then he just sat next to me and petted me. He was kind while he carried me inside to wash away the excrement from my fur. He was kind while he held me and dried my fur. I was still scared and froze like a statue every time he picked me up. But he never yelled at me or raised his voice. He was patient and kind. He fed me and I enjoyed having my belly full. He fixed a soft warm bed for me. He petted my head. Maybe there is hope........ for Hope."
Foster note: In a short 24 hours, Hope has made a remarkable turnaround. She greeted me in the morning after I picked her up with a slightly wagging tail. She followed me around the yard. And though I still had to move slowly toward her, she didn't run around the yard to avoid me. At 48 hours, she is sitting next to me and allowing me to pet her and her fear of being mistreated is melting into wanting to be with me at all times. With the right gentle home and patient person, Hope will be a normal happy dog in no time. Hope is about 2 years old and stands 12 inches tall and weighs 10 pounds (she needs to add a pound or two). She has naturally erect ears and an undocked tail. She probably needs a quiet home with no screaming overly active children. She would be great for an older person in a quiet home. She is very sweet and kind. All of our dogs are spayed, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, on heartworm prevention and micro-chipped. Hope is worth the good works of putting faith in this little girl.
Note: Hope is located in Houston, Texas - and we will not fly this girl.

TX Sheba Sheba Sheba
Sheba: 4 yr old black & tan female, spayed, undocked tail and uncropped ears. 16", 17 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
"My name is Sheba. I should be dead right now. My family had holiday plans and didn't want to spend money to board me or take the time to find someone to watch me.....so their solution was to take me to the shelter and leave me there knowing full well that I would be euthanized within 2 days. You see, most people don't realize that if you take your pet to the shelter that they will be first on the list to be put to sleep because shelters have to keep strays to see if the owners come in to claim them. Shelters don't have to keep owner-give-ups alive. They know they aren't wanted, which is a shame as most of the dogs are there due to no fault of their own.
On my last day, something wonderful happened. A man from a local rescue came in to pull some miniature pinschers he saw listed on the shelter's web site. But they had already been adopted. Every time he passed my cage, I raised my paw at him trying to tell him that I am part min pin. He kept looking at me but didn't stop. Each time he circled around, I waved and screamed at him from inside my head. "Please, please, please. I am wonderful". Finally he stopped and I pawed at the cage for him to please take me out of this shelter full of death and despair. He finally opened his mouth and said, "if you come to me, I will take you home with me". Finally, the moment to prove myself had arrived. I walked calmly to the gate and raised my paw one more time. He smiled. He reached and pulled my card and took me home with him to help me find a new home. I was safe. I jumped in his car as soon as he opened the door and curled up on the seat next to him and just looked at him. I knew what I was supposed to do. I used to be someone's dog until they didn't want me anymore. I hope my new home wants me forever. Thank you kind rescue people, I won't let you down."
Sheba is a 4-year old Min Pin mix. (probably German Pinscher rather than Miniature Pinscher). She is black and tan but predominately black. She looks like a small German Shepherd. She is 16 inches tall at the withers and weighs 17 pounds. She is extremely outgoing and friendly. She loves to play and is very happy to see you. She has a very cute waddle when she walks. When inside, she jumps on the couch and curls up content to be in the same room with a person. She is house broken and crate trained. She is gentle and kind. This is a wonderful dog in need of a loving family. She is big enough to be a source of security for a single woman or elderly person but small enough to be easy maintenance. I highly recommend this dog to anyone who is not particular about having a full blood min pin. You get the personality along with a bigger size and loyal friendly demeanor. All of our dogs are up to date on shots, heartworm negative, on heartworm prevention, micro-chipped and have been socialized.
Note: Sheba is located in Houston, Texas - and we will not fly this girl.

He is boisterous, playful, and quite mischievous, but takes his alert guardian duties very seriously-and he has a soft spot for the ladies. He loves to wear t-shirts and bandanas. Oh, and you can easily win him over with a doggie bone or treat! He would do best in a house that provided him with lots of high energy, outdoor activities.

TX Tug Tug Tug
Tug - "ADOPTION PENDING": 1 yr old black & tan male, neutered, undocked tail and uncropped ears. 11", 21 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
"Hey guys, my name is Tug (but that's not chiseled in stone), and I am a super sweet, slightly timid, joyful, 1-year old little boy. The vet who removed my rear dew claws thought I might be a MinPin - Corgi mix. Pretty cool, huh?
My foster parents says that I am just a big love bug because I like giving kisses. My fur is super soft, and I am a very cuddly boy. I love to sit beside you on the couch, but my favorite place is in your lap, if you don't mind! And, if you let me sleep in the bed with you, I will crawl under the covers and keep your feet nice and warm. I sleep all through the night.
I have a natural tail, natural ears, and a long body. Some might think my legs are short, but they reach the ground! I weigh almost 21 pounds and am solid muscle. I get along great with other dogs and love to play with them as well as toys of all kinds. I rarely bark, but when I do, I have a real nice baritone. I also love to go for walks and don't mind a leash at all. I know how to use the doggie door and love to go outside in the sun.
I may take a little while to warm up to strangers, but once I get to know you, I am good to go...and getting treats doesn't hurt. I would love to become a member of your home, so I can share all my joy with you."

Romeo: 2 yr old black & rust male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 10", 12 lb. Fully vetted. Owner give-up.

"Hello, We are Sophie and Romeo. They say we are brother and sister which is probably true. One thing is certain, we are best buds. We have been through so much together. We were found starving on the side of the road and were on death's door. No one really knows how we got in that situation....we were either dumped or we got loose somehow. Either way, we were scared, alone, hungry, and in trouble. A lady found us and took us home intending to keep us. She fed us and fed us and fed us and fed us....not always good food and we gained weight and gained weight and gained weight to the point of being morbidly obese. Then the lady decided to move and didn't want to take us with her so she put us on craig's list to be given away. Lucky for us, some people from a rescue saw us and moved in to take possession of us to keep us safe. We are now in a nice home and on a strict diet and losing weight. We are ready to be adopted and find a new home together. We want to stay together because we are best buds and we comfort each other. Please adopt us both so we can remain friends forever!!!!!"
Sophie and Romeo are about 2 years old and stand about 10 inches high. They weigh 12 pounds now but need to get down to about 10 pounds each. Sophie is red and Romeo and almost all black. They have natural ears and docked tails. They are extremely sweet and are full of personality. If you want some cute sweet cuddle bugs...these are the dogs for you. Romeo snores a little when he sleeps but this may be due to his being overweight. Sophie likes to sit on the back of the couch. Both are fun loving and love to play. They comfort each other and give kisses very frequently. Discounts in adoption fees are given when dogs are adopted together.
Note: Sophie and Romeo are located in Houston, Texas - and we will not fly these dogs.

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.

VA Dion Dion
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.

I like one or two dogs to play with, or just run around by myself since I really don't like a lot of crowds, and I can entertain myself by running around for a bit, then to reward myself I will flop over so you can rub my belly!

VA Rose Rose Rose
Rose: 2 year old black & tan female. Spayed, docked tail, natural ears. 13", 10lbs, fully vetted
Rose arrived in rescue from the shelter. Never has there been a sweeter rose. She has a misshapen left front foot but it doesn't bother her in the least, it just makes her more distinctive. Rose is slowly developing some confidence. She is house broken and has gotten used to being out in the snow and loves being in the backyard. She is not aggressive about food, but she does eat very quickly, like she is afraid she won't get her share. She loves her toys and plays all by herself, but would love if only one of our three Min Pin boys would join in. We feel she needs to be in a (Fenced Yard) home with another dog that she could play and sleep with and not be an only dog. Someone who works from home to keep her company would be ideal if there's no other dogs to play with. While she is very skittish, she is not snippy but just cowers until she gets comfortable. Probably not a dog that would enjoy the quick movements of small children. Rose has been around cats and is not interested. She is pretty much a blank slate, waiting for a forever home to call her own and a loving family to make her all that she can be..

"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.

WA Ginger Ginger: 5 yr old stag red female, spayed, docked tail and uncropped ears. 13", 17 lb. Fully vetted.
"Hi Everyone! My name is Ginger and I'm just as sweet and sassy as my name implies. I know that I'm classified as "special needs," but who doesn't have special needs, especially when it comes to lovin'? I've had a rough life for being only 5 years old and I don't remember much of it before I was rescued on a freeway ramp by a good Samaritan. I was then adopted to what seemed like the perfect home but something went terribly wrong and I found myself on the street again. I was lucky enough to be taken into a shelter before I was hurt, but it was obvious that I was not well. Since I was microchipped (whatever that means), the shelter was able to contact IMPS and a wonderful lady came and rescued me from that noisy shelter. After a visit to the doctor, it was discovered that I am diabetic and they set about getting me "regulated." I now feel great and I don't mind getting a shot after every meal. Oh, and I do have another small handicap. I am mostly blind from not having my diabetes diagnosed and treated early on. It doesn't slow me down, but does mean that I will stay close to you for guidance. All I really want is a home that will love me for my sweet, gentle nature and that won't mind attending to my small challenges. I have a lot of spunk and a lot of kisses left to give. I also get along well with other dogs. If you think you're ready to give me a chance to be your best lil' girl, please contact my foster mom."
Note from the Pacific Northwest coordinator: Please don't shy away from a diabetic dog if you think you may have the perfect warm spot for Ginger or another diabetic dog in need. I personally have a diabetic dog and the care is not that difficult. It does require sticking to a 12 hour schedule for feeding/injections, using a good quality food, and having periodic testing done as advised by your vet. Novalin N insulin can be used by most diabetic dogs and is available at Walmart for $24.95 per bottle and the bottle will last a minimum of one month.

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. Irvin was diagnosed with diabetes, which caused the cataracts and blurs his vision. Irvin has a steady diet, along with 2 shots a day of insulin, loves his squeaky toys, car rides, walks, and gets along with other dogs.
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. Is that you or someone you know, that can provide that special home please fill out an adoption application.

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.

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!

WV 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.

WV Miles Miles Miles
Miles: 2 yr old stag red male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 10", 13 lb. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
"Howdy! I'm Miles. I was picked up as a runaway and then spent several weeks in jail hoping my family would come and bail me out.. but no one came to rescue me. I was then placed in a safehouse. My foster home is nice. I have a big fenced-in yard and a playmate name "Red Dawg ". My foster mom says I have several good qualities...I am crate trained, 90% house broken. and I listen when called or being corrected. Plus, I get along with the family cat. I am now taking applications for my "forever" adoptive family. My one requirement that is a must for my adoption is secure fenced-in yard, as I love the out doors. I'll be expecting to hear from you! oxoxoxox. Miles."

WV Dion Dion
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.

"Hi! I'm Prince! I am a very loveable and sweet MinPin! Just look at me, you Have to fall in love! Obviously I have been fed lots to reward me for good behavior, perhaps a bit too much but that's just more of me to Love! I will play with you, walk beside you, sit on the couch with you all the time. I like one or two dogs to play with, or just run around by myself since I really don't like a lot of crowds, and I can entertain myself by running around for a bit, then to reward myself I will flop over so you can rub my belly! Are you my furever home?"

WV Rose Rose Rose
Rose: 2 year old black & tan female. Spayed, docked tail, natural ears. 13", 10lbs, fully vetted
Rose arrived in rescue from the shelter. Never has there been a sweeter rose. She has a misshapen left front foot but it doesn't bother her in the least, it just makes her more distinctive. Rose is slowly developing some confidence. She is house broken and has gotten used to being out in the snow and loves being in the backyard. She is not aggressive about food, but she does eat very quickly, like she is afraid she won't get her share. She loves her toys and plays all by herself, but would love if only one of our three Min Pin boys would join in. We feel she needs to be in a (Fenced Yard) home with another dog that she could play and sleep with and not be an only dog. Someone who works from home to keep her company would be ideal if there's no other dogs to play with. While she is very skittish, she is not snippy but just cowers until she gets comfortable. Probably not a dog that would enjoy the quick movements of small children. Rose has been around cats and is not interested. She is pretty much a blank slate, waiting for a forever home to call her own and a loving family to make her all that she can be..

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.
