Meet Gino! Gino is a HANDSOME super smart, active boy who loves his walks! He will even come and get you to take him for his walks! You may have noticed Gino is missing a leg..well don't tell Gino because he doesn't know! This beautiful chocolate boy flies around the house and yard and doesn't even miss his leg. Gino gets along great with other dogs and enjoys socializing with new dogs and people. He also likes to snooze in the sunshine, snuggle on your lap and give lots of Min Pin kisses. He is a nice balance of great energy and chilling out too. He is food motivated (aka easy to train) and is learning to sit, stay etc...though he must not get too many treats so his waistline stays nice and slim. Gino is housebroken using a dog door and is crate trained too. Gino will do best in a dog-savvy home with children over the age of 13 please.
If you have the love and time for this super special boy, please contact his foster mom today - you won't regret it! He will be the welcome on the mat when you get home from your long day at work - wagging his little stub tail at you enthusiastically as he lets you know he is looking forward to his walk with you! :-)

Note: Gino is located on the San Mateo County Coast, CA, and we can fly this boy in cabin with Adopter only.

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.
