My name is Crash! I am 2 years old but, I am very calm and relaxed for my age. I was very timid and shy when I first came to my foster parent’s home, but I am learning to come out of my shell and that I matter too. I love to follow my foster brother around and “back him up” whatever he happens to be doing at the time. (Usually following mom around and causing mayhem) I know how to “sit” and I walk very well on a leash. Matter of fact, as soon as I hear the words outside I sit politely at the door and wait for my sweater and leash, because I love walks. I am very very curious and if you will let me I’ll take an hour to go around the block so I can smell EVERYTHING!! ? I do go in my crate, but as soon as you get home I need out, because I feel like you forgot about me. I am starting to get a personality, and I go to the dog park frequently. I just started to wander around in there and make friends. At first I was scared and sat in the corner, but Ayden my foster brother is showing me the way. I like to just sit in your lap and be a lazy dog, but I like to play at times too. I am not a “burrower” under the covers, but I do not like to be forgot about either, I would love to say good night and have a good petting before bed but then I will sleep at the foot of the bed under a small corner of the blanket. I would love a forever home that is willing to be patient with me and work me out of my timid stage.
I have a microchip, my vaccines are current, and I am on monthly heartworm prevention.
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.
