Billy is a 13lb red sable pom who, at 5 years old, is waiting to start a new life after being given up by a family who is expecting a baby and felt they would not be able to give him the attention he deserves. Once he warms up to you, he is quit a love bug. He has shown some attention to our female pom, and wants to play but, he is larger and plays ruff so she wants nothing to do with him so he mainly sticks to being with Johnny. He has discovered what squeaky toys are and loves nothing more than to chew on them and carry them around the house. He enjoys getting in the pool but only to tiptoe through it while getting a drink of water. Billy has the cutest under bite and it gives him such an expressive face.
Billy does sleep in a crate with his brother at night and when let out, would rather sleep on the floor than on the bed when other dogs are on it. When it is just you and Billy on the bed, he likes to root around the covers and lay as close to you as he can get. He and his brother will bark/howl for about 30 seconds to voice their displeasure when put in their crate but, they settle down quickly and do not make a peep until it’s time to get up or they need to go to the bathroom. Billy does mark in the home as he and his brother both came in unaltered but a firm no will stop him in the act or, he also wears a belly band if you would prefer — with some training, this is easily corrected.
Both boys LOVE to be outside so a fenced in yard with a doggy door would be the heaven, or someone will be getting a lot of practice opening and closing their doors at home.
Billy is current on vaccines, heart worm negative and current on heart worm prevention, neutered, microchipped and had his teeth professionally cleaned.
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.
