Missy, California foster

Missy

Mag,

Here is a picture of Missy from California. She has changed a bunch in the past week and a half. Her coat is no longer full of flakes and it's very shinny and healthy looking. She is just a sweetheart. She's just too cute to give up, so we're going to adopt her ourselves!

Tilly,Billy

Hi Mag,

Our story involving IMPS is kind of interesting...thought you might enjoy it!

My husband and I recently got married and purchased our first home and talked about getting another minpin (we have Billy, the pin in the little devil costume on your site)...we even joked about getting a black and tan female and naming her "Tilly" so they'd both come when we called them!

Imagine our surprise when we found the IMPS site online; and the very first dog listed for adoption was a little black and tan female, out of California, named "Tilly!"

We fell in love with her online, and after going through the adoption procedure, we flew Tilly home to New England last Tuesday.

She's a beautiful little girl and it feels like she's been with us forever. Maybe we were meant to have her all along. Here's a picture of Tilly and her new brother, enjoying some treats from daddy at the breakfast table.

We're strong believers in adopting this way and giving good animals a good home. We also share our house with three cats, all of whom love Tilly just as much as we do!

Nina

Here is Nina in her new home ...they love her and Ellie the other dog they adopted from IMPS.

Thank you lonnie for helping me make this work

Kim - IMPS CA

Note: For those who don't know, Kim is the IMPS Regional Coordinator in CA. Nina was rescued last month and due to nerve damage, had to have her leg amputated. You can read her story at http://www.minpinrescue.org/nina.html. Nina is now in her new home in FL, where she will be loved and hopefully turned into a therapy dog.

Maggie, my first little foster

Sat, 09 Jun 2001 21:15:51 -0700 - from Linda

Maggie

Mag, these are the first pictures of Maggie. She was found beside a freeway in Tehachapi California. Her pelvis was shattered. IMPS agreed to accept her, she was taken to LA for two surgeries, one on each side of her pelvis. All photo's are of the same side, but she has matching incisions. She is on crate rest for a month except to go to the bathroom. She is a week post op today. She is already feeling much better, tried to run today :(. She is very puppy like and is desperate to be free in the yard and house to explore. She is about a year old. She will have to be spayed when her pelvis is healed. She will return to LA for this surgery and then go up for adoption. Linda

Scooter and his new family!

Mon, 2 Jul 2001 14:21:37 -0700 - from Tracy

Hi Mag -- This was one of the most rewarding adoptions I have had the pleasure of being involved in. The Brant Family (Mike, Katie, Mikala and Morgan) was a pleasure to work with. I was hoping you could post the following letter and the pictures of Scooter with two members of his new family, Mike and Mikala, to the Saluki site. Thanks!

Tracy :>)


Scooter and Family

Well I tell you, this dog impresses me more everyday. He sleeps under the covers with us. Loves the car very much and sits between the carseats. At first, he wanted to be held by me all the time. Now he comes over when he feels I am not busy. He has figured out how the family works and has adjusted amazingly. I am shocked by how intelligent minpins really are. He has become part of the family in only three days. He has started protecting the family from anybody and anything he feels is not acceptible company!! The cats and he seem to have an understanding about who goes where and when. Scooter is a great dog!!!!!!! He is way beyond anything I dreamed of having through adoption or rescue!! I'm not sure getting a puppy and raising it myself would have resulted in a better dog. Well, I am going to send you some more photo's. It is kind of hard to get all of us together since someone has to hold the camera! Thanks again for everything!!

:) Mike and Katie :)

Cornell's adoption

Sun, 5 Aug 2001 09:43:06 -0700 - from Mike and Katie

Cornell,Lori,Axel
Cornell,Mikayla Hey Mag,

Could you post these pictures of Cornell's new family, and my daughter Mikayla saying goodbye? Cornell is going to his forever home!!! Lori is a caring person who had rescued a Minpin, named Axel, from someone who had been abusing the poor guy. She has the same heart we do for these guys. Cornell and Axel will be buds. They hit it off pretty good at the park. We meet half way from each other (eight to nine hour drive between us!!) at a park in Mt Shasta, California which turned out to be a good setting for the exchange. We will miss you Cornell but good luck at your home!!

Hey Mag here are some photo's and the listing I sent to the people of the list about Jazzy's adoption. Let me know if you want me to write a different one or something.

Mikayla and Malica

Mon, 13 Aug 2001 14:17:53 -0700 - from Mike and Katie

Malica

Hey Mag,

What a busy weekend!!! Saturday was dedicated to Jazzy and her adoption and Sunday was all about Mikayla and Malica. We had a Birthday party at the skating ring with all of Mikayla's buddies, and then immediately headed to San Francisco Airport (SFO) to pick up Malica. Frazier, the wonderful man who transported Malica on his flight out here, left a message to me saying he would not be in at 6 but 8:30. Found out later that he had nothing but trouble getting Malica on the plane. They wouldn't let him use the crate Nancy and he had obtained, so he had to get another one. Never the less, he missed the flight because of it. Turns out the traffic on Sunday night here was insane!! We would not have been there on time, even if all was good.

Malica

Well, Malica was worth the slight hassle!!! She is precious! Thought you might post these on the web site!! We have not had Minpin puppies around till now and all I can say is how adorable and cute, yet she runs the house already!! Clyde has excepted her as you can tell and Scooter runs from her! hehehe Thanks Mag!!

K.C.'s Adoption

Sat, 1 Sep 2001 14:15:06 -0700 - from Mike

K.C. and his new family

Hey Mag,

Here is some good photo's of K.C.'s adoption and his new family!! Melinda and K.C. immediately became buds and K.C. took to her immediately. Not only did Melinda open her house to one of our little guys, she donated an extra $200.00 to IMPS for Penny and Scrumptious. She had heard the story of Penny and immediately felt obligated to help out for the surgery. We thank Melinda immensely for her kindness and wish K.C. lots of love and joy!! He truly is a wonderful dog.

Sam and her have become great pals, its like she was always a part of our family. I think Linda is going to write up a little something on Maggie's how ordeal.

Malica.Scooter

Here's some new pics of our furkids, Malica and Scooter. Malica was playing with a slammer that she continuously dropped off the couch to make it chirp. We tried Christmas pics...no way was Malica going to sit still and she wanted to eat the Santa hat.
