"Oh Lydia oh Lydia say have you met Lydia? She has eyes the folks so adore. My foster Mom sings me this song, I think she is silly, but she says even though I have one bad eye, I am a beautiful girl. I am a bigger min pin, and an all natural with my ears and tail. I may have a little something else in me (or just bad breeding). My story starts off when I and several others were not being taken care of physically and emotionally, IMPS was called to help out, boy am I glad they could help all of us. We were flea infested, starving, and some of us were not in great shape. I was taken to Ohio State University Vet Hospital (Go Bucks!), come to find out I had suffered some kind of head trauma, my left eye was mostly detached and I was blind in that eye. After many tests and a bunch of poking and prodding (all of which I was a very good girl) it was decided I got to keep my eye, but have to have an eye drop each day. I do not mind my eye drops because I get a yummy treat. It is suggested I do see a Vet every 6 months to check my eye. I love to be outside running around, I like to take all the toys, blankets, and toilet paper outside with me... this makes me very happy to run out the door with foster Mom running after me telling me to drop it (especially if it is the last TP roll). I like to help garden, ok well, I like to dig holes, and watch foster Mom fill them back up with dirt to let me start all over again digging. I do get scared when asked to do new things, but I really am working hard on being a brave girl. I take treats very gently now, but still have a little problem with someone taking things away from me. I am walking very well on the leash, and like my crate when it is time for eating and quiet time, give me a bone or a Kong, and I am a happy girl. Sometimes when sitting on my foster Mom's lap and another doggie wants up I will growl, and I do play rough with other doggies and have to be told to settle, or I get a time out. Usually I am a pretty quiet girl, but boy howdy can I howl like a banshee when excited. If interested in me, please fill out an adoption application, I would love a family all my own, that will take care of me forever."

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.
