Facts about Blake

  • Breed: Miniature Pinscher

  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less

Blake: 9 years old, black and tan male, natural tail and ears, 13 lbs and 15". Shots up-to-date, owner surrender.

This tall, handsome older man is looking for a home all his own where he can spend the next 9 or 10 years being the apple of someone's eye. Blake is a well behaved boy who will do best as an only child or with a female companion. He gets along with other dogs but tends to be a bit too bossy with other males. Blake is very distinguished both in looks and behavior, none of that ball chasing business for him. He walks well on a leash and loves a nice stroll around the neighborhood. Blake is good with children 6 and up, but I'm not sure how he would do with pre-schoolers. In the evenings when you sit on the couch watching tv he will sit on the back right next to you. If he feels he needs your attention he will quietly lean over and gently give you a kiss - sometimes on your cheek, sometimes on your ear. As with most min pins he is very treat motivated. He LOVES rawhide chips and twists - any flavor except mint please.
Blake is a runner so care must be taken at the front door. He is also a bit of an escape artist as long as it isn't too much work. He found an easy spot to dig along my fence and scooted out so that he could follow all the kids to the neighborhood school one day. Once I fixed the easy spot he has made no additional attempts to dig out. He is house trained using a doggie door.
Blake would love to find a home with an older person that would allow him to snuggle under the covers at night. He can be quite the couch potato when he wants to be. A quite home or apartment would be perfect for him. If you are looking for a companion, please consider Blake. I know he would love to meet you! If interested please contact his foster mom, Suzanne at:

Note: Blake is located in CA in the Sacramento area - and we will not fly this boy.

About Internet Miniature Pinscher Service, Inc. (Northern CA & Northern NV)

About Our Rescue Group...

The 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 Minpin List . 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 Adoption 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 Volunteer Application

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters must 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.
