IMPS SENIORS ADOPTION PROGRAM

IMPS wants to find great forever homes for our seniors, so we will waive the adoption Donation for dogs 10 yrs and older. We also will agree to pay 50% of their routine medical bills for the remainder of their lives. Check with the foster home of the dog that interests you or your local IMPS Regional Coordinator if you would like to adopt one of our special seniors.

IMPS strongly advises reading the information we provide about the Miniature Pinscher to ensure it is the perfect breed for you... Click HERE for more info.

If you would like to apply to become an adoptive home, please fill out and send the IMPS Min Pin Adoption Application.

STATE DESCRIPTION
AL Lincoln1 Lincoln1
Lincoln: 12 yr old stag red male, neutered, docked tail and cropped ears. 14", 16 lb. Owner give-up.
Lincoln is an older guy in need of a home to live out his final days. As with most older dogs, Lincoln does have a few health issues, but do not be concerned! They are just related to age. He is mostly blind and deaf, and he has a heart murmur (no treatment is needed at this time) as well as some minor kidney disease. At this point in time, nothing special is needed. This boy just needs lots of love. Lincoln will ideally have a home where someone is around often. If you want to add a special senior to your life, please apply and ask for Lincoln.
Note: Lincoln is located in Huntsville, AL - and we will not fly this boy.

CA Bella Bella Bella
Bella - "ADOPTION PENDING": 11 yr old black & rust female, spayed, docked tail and uncropped ears. 12", 11 lb. Fully vetted. Owner give-up.
We are pleased to introduce this lovely diva to you. Bella is a wonderful girl who just wants to spend time with the people she loves. She walks well on a leash using a harness, is a championship snuggler and very well mannered. We've had no accidents in the house, even with all the rain! Bella is crate trained but would really love to sleep in the human bed with you. She ignores cats and will tolerate other dogs if they don't get in her face. Bella does not like loud sudden noises (she gets in your lap and trembles) or lots of activity. Don't let her age fool you though. She LOVES to be taken on half mile or mile long walks and has plenty of life left in her! Bella will do best in a quiet home with adults as an 'only child' or a family with older children. Please consider this lovely lady for a place in your heart.
Note: Bella is located in Sacramento, CA - and we will not fly this lady.

Missy Missy
Missy: 12 yr old red female, spayed, docked tail and uncropped ears. 13". Fully vetted.
Socks Socks
Socks: 12 yr old black & tan male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 13". Fully vetted.

Missy and Socks are a very sweet pair of seniors who get along well with the dogs and cats (not yet tested with small children). Missy is a little shy at first, but will readily cuddle and loves to sleep with her humans. She can be playful, and she doesn't like big staircases! Socks is a calm, friendly guy who likes to cuddle too. He is happy to sleep with humans - or cats, haha. Missy and Socks are a bonded pair who are now 12, and they need to stay together. They were both much loved family pets, but their owners split up and due to having to move for work, they were sadly surrendered. They are both a bit overweight, but are losing weight as we speak. If you are right for this pair and they for you, a very good financial arrangement could be made for their adoption and for some basic vet expenses going forward, considering their age, and being a pair.

FL Phoebe Phoebe Phoebe
Phoebe: 11-12 yr old red female, spayed, docked tail and uncropped ears. 12", 17.2 lb. Fully vetted. Owner give-up.
This beautiful girl's name is Phoebe, she is a mature senior gal who would love to find a furever home with her friend Perry. They have lived together their entire lives and really deserve to stay together. She had a rough beginning as a breeder dog who was never loved. She is still a little shy with new people and needs time to warm up to you. It can often be difficult for some dogs to transition into their new homes but those can also be the most rewarding bonds once they are created. Phoebe is absolutely beautiful and her friend Perry sure does love her. He can't bare to be away from her. Phoebe is currently on a diet plan, she needs to shed a couple pounds and she also has some issues with her heart. She is currently in CHF (Congestive Heart Failure) which requires her to take 2 medications daily. Dogs can live for years with the condition and now that she is on the proper medication and diet, her symptoms could go away completely. If you are interested in giving Phoebe (and hopefully Perry) a place to call home in their retirement years please contact their foster mom. These two sweeties would be forever greatful and woudl show it every day with tooshy wiggles and puppy kisses.
Note: Phoebe is located in Perry, FL.

FL Perry Perry Perry
Perry: 10-11 yr old black & tan male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 11", 13.9 lb. Fully vetted. Owner give-up.
Say Hello to the very handsome Perry, he is a mature boy who would love to find his furever home with his friend Phoebe. You see these two sweeties have lived together through some rough times their entire lives and Perry really loves his friend Phoebe.They were breeder dogs for most of their lives and never really knew love. Perry is a little shy at first but he warms up pretty quickly and just follows you everywhere with googly eyes. This poor little fella managed to find a home for awhile with his friend Phoebe and suffered an accident there, Perry accidentally got out of his home and was attacked by another animal. It was a pretty serious attack that he thankfully survived but there was a lot of damage to his skin. You can notice the bald looking spots on him in his photos, but now that Perry is on a healthy diet (we are also working on getting a few pounds off his frame) his hair is starting to grow in! He is a very very sweet boy and would love to find that perfect retirement home with his friend Phoebe where they could lounge the days away with a family who really loves them. If you are intersted in showing Perry (and hopefully his friend Phoebe too) what it's like to be cherished by a human family please email his foster mom.
Note: Perry is located in Perry, FL.

MN Sebastian Sebastian Sebastian
Sebastian: 10 yr old chocolate male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 14", 14.4 lb.
Sebastian is a 10 yr old IMPS return that is 14.4 lbs and a handsome chocolate and tan boy. Sebastian started his life in a hoarding situation and was adopted in 2008. After he spent 6 years in a home where he was loved to the point of his owner sacrificing personal health to keep his dogs Sebastian found himself back in foster care......homeless and distressed. Sebastian came back in January because his owner was moved to assisted living despite his protests but his previous owners one comfort is that IMPS is serious about protecting our dogs. IMPS will keep their promise to Sebastian and his former owner by bringing him back to safety and finding him a home that will love him for the rest of his day.....despite his age. Sebastian is almost 100% blind due to dry eye, which is a lack of tear production, and will need drops for the rest of his life. He gets around good if he knows where he is, will follow voices and has learned to go in and out by smell and sound. Due to his teeth, which will be addressed before he is adopted, we have to wet his dry food down so it will get soft for meal time but he is a great boy, quiet and loves to hide under blankets. He does prefer his crate be covered at night when he sleeps. If Sebastian sounds like someone that you would like to provide for in his last few years then please fill out an adoption application asap. Foster homes aren't easy on blind dogs, because of the activity level with dogs coming and going, so we would love to see him in a quiet home soon!

NE Dallas Dallas: 11 yr old red male, neutered, docked tail and cropped ears. 19", 30 lbs. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
"Hi my name is Dallas I am 11 years young and 30 pounds! They think I might have German pinscher in me which basically makes me look like a big lug of a Minpin! I was rescued from a shelter in Texas."
I can't say enough great things about this little guy. Although he is part of the senior discount program at 11 years old you would never guess him to be that age. He is spry and playful. He gets along great with other dogs of all sizes and as you can see by the picture really loves the kids too. He seems to enjoy almost anyone's company and loves to be petted, he will nudge your hand with his head just to get a few extra pets! Dallas has had a lot of instability in his life but has kept a rockstar attitude! He looks forward to finding a forever family of his own! Anyone who decides to adopt this happy-go-lucky boy will be lucky! Will you give this darling boy a home of his own? If you have questions or are interested in adopting Dallas contact his foster mommy Kathe: downsdogs@yahoo.com
Note: Dallas is located in Louisville, NE - and we will not fly this boy.

NY Apollo Apollo Apollo
Apollo: 10 yr old black & tan male, neutered, undocked tail and uncropped ears. 15", 15 lb. Shots up-to-date. Owner give-up.
"Hi, my name is Apollo. I came into foster care when my previous home was unable to keep me because of illness in the family and the tough economy. I miss my companion Nikita but I am doing good here with my foster brothers. I like to sleep under the blankets and on the bed. I was used to being in a yard most of the time and starting to get use to the house training routine around here. I can be a little vocal at times like most min pins, were I voice my opinion with the others. I get along good with the other doggies as there is me and four others here. I do not seem to mind the kitties but not sure how I would get along with them or they with me. I get along good with other people but I am not sure about the little two legged ones as I have not much experience with them. I am up to date on my vaccinations and heart wormed tested. I had a accident years ago with my leg and the rescue group is trying to figure the best way to help me out. If you have any questions about me, my foster Dad will be more then happy to answer them for you. Just give him a day or so to respond.
Thanks,
Apollo."
Note: Apollo is located in Niagara Falls - Niagara County - NY - and we will not fly this boy.

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.

Note: we will not fly this girl.
