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

I love this dog! He is sweet and loving, playful and just darn cute. Rocky loves everyone regardless of age or size. Nothing scares him and he has a very calm temperament. He is great with other dogs, especially if they like to play. He has lots of energy and would do well in a home where he was exercised regularly. Rocky can also be a couch potato, especially if there is a blanket he can snuggle under next to you. He is house trained, crate trained and very well socialized. He even likes cats!
Rocky gives great kisses too. His only bad habit is chewing (common in young dogs who get bored). I provide lots of cow hooves, rawhide twists and kongs to keep him entertained in his crate when I'm not home. Rocky has had some training and I believe he is a good candidate for obedience competitions. He would make a great dog for a first time pet owner.
If Rocky sounds like he might be your forever dog, contact Suzanne at

Note: Rocky is located in Sacramento, CA. We will fly this boy in-cabin only with the adopter.

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.
