Facts about Blake

  • Breed: Miniature Pinscher
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 19779
Blake: 10 years old, black and tan male, natural tail and ears, 15" and 17 lbs, shots up to date, owner surrender.

Tall, dark, and handsome, Blake is the vision of a dignified gentleman. As such, he doesn't have time for fetch, cats, or rival males. He does however, have all the time in the world for humans of all ages, cuddles, and naps. In fact, if he feels neglected, he has no trouble sitting right down on your lap until he's had his fill.
Good on a leash, Blake loves a good walk, even though he tires easily. And while he enjoys his humans, he yearns for freedom. He will see any open door as an opportunity to escape, but even a minor impediment will thwart his effort.
Be prepared to house train him. It took him a while to adjust to the doggy door and time at the house without humans watching him. He comes with a belly-band to keep your floors pee free until he gets the hang of the bathroom routine. This may not be an issue if there are no other male dogs in the household. He is possessive and often aggressive toward other male dogs, which may be contributing to the "accidents." Other dogs also tend to get him wound up into barking fits.
I strongly recommend a household with no other male dogs, and he will absolutely not be sent to a home with any cats. Absolutely, NO CATS. Please do not even inquire, if you have cats. I would rather keep this cuddly little wonder forever than send him to an owner who has to return him.
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.
