Toby came to IMPS as an owner surrender. Our home is fortunate to have Toby as part of our pack even if it is only temporarily as his foster home. Toby fit in immediately with our 5 dogs (large & small) and 2 cats. He is a very happy boy and loves to please. He is quite the house mouse. He goes out to do his business and then is the 1st one at the door to get back inside. When he is not playing with all the stuffed dog toys he loves lounging on the back of the sofa. He is crate trained and sleeps in his crate all night. He will let you know (barks) if he needs to go outside. He would prefer sleeping in bed with us under the covers! Toby loves to "Go bye-bye" and will jump right in the car for a ride. Toby has been around children and doesn't mind them picking him up. He also knows how to use a doggie door. Toby is a wonderful family dog that will make a great addition to anyone's home.
Toby was recently diagnosed with diabetes. He requires 2 insulin injections a day (12 hours apart). He eats a prescription dry food to help him loose a little weight. Please don't let giving a dog an injection keep you from considering Toby as a family member. The needle is very small and he doesn't even feel the shot when I give it to him. The most important thing you want to think about is the timing of his injections. You must have a family situation that allows you to be home for the injections 12 hours apart.
Toby is currently in Coshocton County. Please contact me with any questions,

About IMPS-Internet Miniature Pinscher Service, Inc. - OH region

About Our Rescue Group...

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 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 IMPS Potential Home 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 IMPS Potential Home 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.
