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
CA Burt Burt Burt
Burt: 10 years old, black & tan, neutered male, natural ears, docked tail, 13" 14.5 lbs. Shots up-to-date & micro-chipped, rescued from hoarding situation.
Burt is one of 8 min pins that IMPS took in from a horrendous hoarding situation where Burt lived for a number of years in a crate, and in a shed in the dark. Burt has now become a social dog who loves being with his foster siblings and receiving love and attention from humans, exploring outside, and laying in the sun.
Burt has some deformities since he was in such a small space for so long, but he doesnt let that keep him down and hes catching up on all the things he missed while living with the hoarder. His is a bit weak in this back end and his back legs tend to give way sometimes causing him to sit down. He gets himself back up and moving again like nothing happened. He also has a cough that he will have from now on and takes meds for that twice a day.. Hes also suffered abuse and is a little slow thinking, but once he figures out what you want him to do, hell try his best to do it for you. Hes got some age, and at 10 or over, he qualifies for the IMPS Senior Special Program.
Burt isnt a great beauty. In fact, hes downright ugly. The thing is, if you look beyond his appearance you will find a really sensitive, sweet, loving guy, who glows when he gets attention. Hes loyal too since everywhere I go Burt goes too. If I sit down, hell curl up next to me and wait for me. Hes even started playing with me. When I call him, he flies across the yard to me just buzzing with excitement at the prospect of attention or maybe even a little treat. Hes learned to snuggle with his doggie siblings too. Ive learned that Burt has a lot to offer and I seldom notice how unattractive he is since hes got a warm heart and a happy soul and hes become such a delight to have around. Burt is an inspiration since hes overcome whatever his life so far has dealt him, moved on and learned to trust again. He has become one of my all-time favorite dogs.
Burt needs a forever home with fewer dogs to compete with his attention or knock him over, and he deserves a forever home with someone to love and care for him and give the individual attention that he loves.
If you think you could be the home for Burt, please complete an application and come meet him.

NOTE: Burt is located in Springville, CA. We will only fly this boy in-cabin with the Adopter.

Say Hello to Mikey, he recently came back to us after his adoptive mom of many years passed away. Mikey is a super sweet and loving little guy who would love to find the perfect retirement home. He is low key and just wants to hang out on the sofa and snuggle while watching YOUR favorite program, he isn't picky at all. If you think you might be the perfect match for this little nugget, please get in touch with his foster mom.

MD Piper Piper: 10 year old chocolate female, spayed, docked tail, cropped ears 11lbs fully vetted, Owner passed away rescued from shelter.
Piper's age is estimated at 10 but she doesn't look or act like it. Crate trained, house broken, good with older children and other dogs and chases cats. She's a sweet little girl that is a little timid at first. She's laid back and will sit with you and borough under the covers to sleep. A good watchdog that will let you know when someone is at the door and when the UPS or trash truck is outside. She came into rescue with her younger friend, Lady, also available for adoption. They don't need to be adopted together but first consideration towards a person that would take them both. A secure fenced yard is a must .We believe Piper is happy living with another dog.

Note: Piper is located in Bowie, Maryland and we will not fly this dog.

NV Ripley Ripley Ripley
Ripley: 13 year old, red, neutered male, docked tail & natural ears, 16" & 20 lbs., owner surrender.
Ripley is 13 years old up to date on all shots and neutered. He is kennel trained, but needs to wear a belly band until he knows the rules of a new house. Ripley is a sweet old man once he warms up to you. He has not had the best life so it takes him a little bit to trust, but once he does, he is a snuggler. Ripley loves to wag his tail and his eyes light up when he sees someone that he loves. He has a little trouble seeing, so he can be cranky here and there, but for the most part he gets along with my pack. Ripley does talk, so don't mistake that for growling or being snarky he really does want to please. He is just looking for someone to love him and understand him in his old age.

NOTE: Ripley is located in Fallon, NV. We will only fly this boy in-cabin with the Adopter.
