Rescued from a high-kill shelter in California, this California dream is a serious cuddle bug and oh so soft! He is overflowing with that special Min Pin love.
Merv is a lover of blankets and other soft fabrics. He can shift into play mode with very little urging, is eager to play with toys, balls, a game of tug, or a serious round of play with another dog. He gets along very well with all four of his canine foster siblings. We think he would do best in a home without cats unless you are willing to work with him as he is too attentive when he sees one.
He is very gentle, but mouthy. He shows his teeth when playing, but is not aggressive in any way. He plays as rough or gentle as the dog or person he is playing with. Merv does great in a crate during the day. He travels great in the car as well.
He is house broken but needs to be supervised to maintain good potty habits in the first few days especially if living with other dogs. He gets into the groove of a schedule very smoothly. Walks well on a leash but will definitely need obedience training as he has a high level of distractibility level. He needs a
gentle but firm leader to give him good direction but because he is eager to please it should just require consistency and patience.
Please consider this boy for a forever home. You wouldn't regret it. He is a special one.
Merv is estimated to be 3-4 years old, is current on vaccinations, neutered, current on heart worm and flea/tick prevention. Merv is 15 lbs and 15.5" tall.
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.

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.
