Hi, I’m Layla, and I’m one heck of a gal! I’m a recent transplant from St. Louis, Missouri. My foster mom thought that I was special enough, which I am, to scoop up from a private rescue out there and help me find my forever home here in Maryland. Now, I’m a part of the Picasso family and loving it.
I’m a 5 year old min pin, weighing in at about 14 pounds and have a magnificent personality. Yes, I know where to do 1s and 2s, and I even give you a not so discreet cue, stand by the door, when I’m ready to do my business. I don’t mind the crate so much; I might whine a bit initially, but don’t worry I’ll survive and the noise pollution will be minimal. I love walks and need them; fear not, neither human nor dog will sneak up on us without me making you aware. As a matter of full disclosure, I don’t know basic commands or any commands for that matter; however, I’m human focused and eager to please. I am good with older children, dogs and cats. Oddly enough, I love cats; I must have been one in a past life, and besides humans they are my favorite snuggle buddies. I like my canine pals as long as they don’t outsize me, which doesn’t take much. My perfect home would have at least a doggie or kitty companion to keep me company and for me to snuggle with when my humans are not home.
I bet you are wondering what makes me so special. I’m a gal that really needs a loving home more than most. Recently, I was diagnosed with diabetes. Like in humans, diabetes in gorgeous doggies like me is quite manageable. I’ll need to be on prescription dog food, which can be found at your local pet store. I do take insulin shots twice a day, so you’ve got be able to stomach needles; don’t worry it does not bother me one bit as long as a scrumptious treat follows shortly thereafter. On a quarterly basis, I’ll need to check in with the vet to make certain all is well, because I want to be your girl companion for many years to come.
On February 21, 2013, I will be undergoing cataracts surgery. Since my diabetes was undiagnosed and untreated for so long, I developed cataracts, but the good news is, the doggie eye vet thinks my vision will be fully restored and as long as my diabetes continues to be managed, I will be able to see forever! I am so excited to be able to see again!
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.

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.
