Facts about George

  • Breed: Miniature Pinscher
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With Tan
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
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 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?

About IMPS-Internet Miniature Pinscher Service, Inc. - TN region

About Our Rescue Group...

Internet Miniature Pinscher Service, Inc. (IMPS) was formed in July of 1998 with the adoption of Lister through the Miniature Pinscher e-mail group at For information on the Miniature Pinscher e-mail list, please visit . The IMPS mission is to improve the lives of homeless and abandoned Miniature Pinschers through rescue and the love and respect that comes with humane care, compassion and kindness. IMPS attempts to assist Miniature Pinschers in need by providing foster care, transport, adoptive homes, veterinary care, and other services and information for the well-being of Miniature Pinschers. All Miniature Pinschers placed through IMPS will be spayed or neutered prior to placement, and have been thoroughly evaluated by a breed representative for temperament and training needs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our rescued min pins are now living in loving foster homes throughout the country and Canada. To start the process please fill out an IMPS Potential Home Application. . The success of IMPS is only possible with the volunteers who have agreed to help with the rescue and placement of miniature pinschers. Assistance from our team of volunteers includes fostering, assistance with owner give-ups & home checks, local shelter checks, and transport & placement of min pins to approved homes. IMPS is in need of volunteers in all of the above described areas. To volunteer, please fill out the IMPS Volunteer Application.

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters must submit an adoption application then pass a veterinary reference check and home visit. IMPS requires reimbursement of all necessary veterinary costs (eg. the cost of the spay/neuter, microchipping, and any veterinary care required prior to placement), and in some instances, travel costs. A donation to the organization is requested with each adoption so that we may continue to care for chronically ill and/or severely injured foster dogs. In all cases, any expenses related to the adoption will be agreed upon prior to placement. While the Adoption expenses may be negotiable for some dogs, please remember that the care and upkeep of a dog, even the "King of Toys", requires some financial outlay, and if a small placement expense is beyond your means, you may wish to consider a pet which does not require as much care as the Miniature Pinscher.
