Ruff Ruff! My name is Hazel
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Female|
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Whoa … I am one cute bundle of energy and I’m smart too…always thinking. A Prime candidate for agility or a perfect fit for an active family that would take me hiking or other avenues of exercise. I love splashing in our wading pool as well. My foster mom tells me all the time what a smart doll baby I am. She thinks I must have spent most of my time in a crate as I didn’t trust that people would let me out …or trust people at all for that matter. BUT, I am learning to trust, love and be loved (I especially loved to be kissed on my muzzle...but I’ll take any loving I can get). My first family dumped me, unceremoniously, at the pound … even signed the paper that said I could be put down. Mom thinks they were kinda mean to me too … as I will bite if I haven’t learned to trust you or if I think you’re going to hurt me. And I was pretty skinny not anymore we kinda overshot perfect weight by a tiny bit. I trust my foster mom and will let her do anything with me (‘cept she has to muzzle me to trim my nails but I’m getting better). I’m pretty much house trained but will use the piddle pad just ‘cuz I can. I’m kinda alpha (typical redhead) and I play rough but nice with the rest of our pack. You should see me tear through the back yard with my 55 lb Boxer brother - I just love Monty! Since I wasn’t socialized early it takes a few minutes to earn my trust but now I really like interacting with people and new dogs. I am an escape artist and can open doors and crates if not completely latched. But I don’t bolt for the door, and have no desire to run off if I get out. I now love my crate. Mom says “go to your room” and I’m there in a heartbeat ‘cuz I know she’ll give me a super great treat. Sometimes I sleep in my “room,” sometimes just free in the family room and sometimes in bed with Mom. I’d love to be your smart doll baby. Check out my Top Dog Model photo.
Hazel is 3.5 yrs old, 13" tall, 14 lbs with a docked tail and natural ears. She is current on vaccines, spayed, on monthly heart worm prevention and microchipped.

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.

Step 5: Placement of min pin in home if above steps are met with approval
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.
