Sheldon is one of those young min pins that is always happy. His tail seems to be in a constant wag. You can't help but hug and kiss him. Sheldon is a good puppy that doesn’t chew on things or get into trouble when left alone. Sheldon is always curious and loves exploring but also loves his humans and will cuddle under the covers with you at the first opportunity. He gets along with both small and large dogs and would love to go to a home with a playmate. Since he is still a puppy he does need a home that will give him a good amount of exercise and one on one playtime with his humans and toys. He loves his toys! Sheldon is semi-housebroken with a doggie door but still needs supervision to make sure he doesn’t have accidents. He can be a bit of a barker if not given the proper amount of stimulus, but daily walks, exercise and playtime will curb that. If you are looking for a young dog that will grow up to be a part of your family forever Sheldon is the one.
Note Sheldon is located in the Sacramento, CA area. We will 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.
