Duncan is a special needs dog. He has a broken elbow that has rehealed and is non-operable. He was surrendered to a high-kill shelter this way. Duncan has undergone extensive physical therapy and is doing great!! He will need physical therapy the rest of his life - about every 4-6 weeks or as recommended by the physical therapist/orthopedist. Each session is approximately $80-120 and his medications are about $50/month. He is on a holistic anti-inflamatory and pain meds (only as needed), and a glucosamine supplement. He will also need to be seen yearly by an orthopedist. Duncan is a very active dog and will need to be kept active in order to avoid arthritis from setting into this leg. He loves to play fetch and is quite good at it. We want him to have a fenced-in yard due to this. He also has about 10-15 minutes of physical therapy exercises that has to be done every day. With all that said, none of this has slowed Duncan down. He is the fastest dog out of all his foster brothers and sisters. He is also a quick study and is eager to learn. He knows sit, wait, shake, high-five and is currently learning stay. Because he is such a people pleaser and eagerly ready to impress, he is easily trained. We are working with him on his leash manners when around other dogs.
Duncan is located in Frederick, MD and can be transported to an approved home.
Rescue Group Info...
Rescued from a dog farm in South Korea in late 2004, Picasso, a red miniature pinscher, truly defines what it means to be a survivor. Thanks to a wonderful rescuer that brought him from South Korea to the U.S., Picasso found his way to his forever home where he made such an impact on his family, that this organization was created to honor him and help min pins in need.
The mission of Picasso’s Place Min Pin Rescue, Inc. is to facilitate the rescue and adoption of stray, abandoned, neglected, abused, and surrendered miniature pinschers and place them into permanent and loving homes.
In the interim, we provide appropriate foster and veterinary care, proper nourishment and of course, plenty of love and attention.
Picasso’s Min Pin Rescue, Inc. services the mid-Atlantic and other states when needed. The availability of financial and volunteer resources will determine how many miniature pinschers and how extended a geographical area can be serviced at any given time. Picasso’s Place Min Pin Rescue’s goal is to provide quality care and placement assistance to as many homeless miniature pinschers possible.
Qualified adoptive families are selected through an application process that is focused on the welfare of the miniature pinscher and the need to place each dog in an environment appropriate for that dog's background, temperament and needs. The needs of the homeless miniature pinschers are the rescue’s primary concern. Obtaining safe, loving, lifelong homes for miniature pinschers is our primary goal.

Every min pin is profiled. We do our best to determine their suitability with cats, other pets and children. They are given flea/tick prevention and a complete medical exam.
Prior to placement, they are spayed/neutered, microchipped and vaccines are updated. All are tested for heartworm and are dewormed. Adopting a min pin is truly a rewarding experience. Your min pin will quickly become a member of the family and add joy to your home. Their playful and sensitive natures will endear them to everyone.
