Nick,Rusty,Dusty This is a picture of Nick with Rusty and Dusty the day Rusty rejoined his brother. Nick,Rusty,Darien Here is Nick with Rusty and his new "brother" Darien, who seems to be very happy with his new home!
Choco Here is Choco the day I picked her up from Dee. Her owner died, the family couldn't manage her, and I kept her.  
Preston,Renee,Ron and crew  
Here is Preston in his new home with Renee and Ron Goolsby here in Lawrence. I've forgotten the names of all his new friends, but there is a teacup poodle in Renee's lap, Preston by her side, a Sharpei on the couch behind Ron's head, two 5 month old Great Dane pups, and their other minpin in Ron's hand. He has a very loving new home!
OH Puppymill Males  
 
Now we're down to the pictures everyone has been waiting for, my 5 puppymill kids! First, the two males with their new friends at the vet clinic.

Here is the large female, 13 1/2".

And the two smaller females. The one on the right is the smallest, 10 1/2", and is the one who is definitely pregnant.
 
They are all sweeties and are very well liked by everyone at the clinic.
They all greet the girls with tails wagging and happy faces, and line up at the run gates every morning to receive medication hidden in a bit of canned dog food. They know each will receive this "treat" and are very polite about it, waiting their turn with waggings nubs! They're even doing pretty well with bathroom duties on a leash in the fenced yard behind the clinic. They're going to be affectionate additions to their future new homes!! :-)

Pics from Joy

Wed, 26 Jan 2000 12:11:49 -0600 - from Joy

Hi -

My name is Joy and I have 2 IMPS resuces and am now an IMPS volunteer. I have a couple of pictures that I would like to have placed on the webpage if possible. Thank you so much.

The first one is of Sarah an IMPS rescue snuggled up in my husbands coat with my other min pin Magnum. Sarah is the one with the big ears. This is their very favorite spot to be besides my bed.

Magnum,Sarah

The othe picture is on the day that I brought home Maizie, a rescue from the Ohio puppy mill closing. My son decided to see if he could fit in her crate, and did, and she is looking at him wondering what in the world he is doing in her crate.

Here is a picture of Maizie and Magnum keeping warm by laying on my boxer Conoco. As you can see in this picture, Maizies hair is growing back in very nicely.

This is a picture of Stormy who I am fostering. He is a real sweetie and loves to snuggle. The vet thinks he is about 2 years old.

hi Mag,

I'm sending you a bunch of pictures of my kids. In the first one they're arranging pillows and towels to suit themselves. From left to right, Choco, Nestle (yes, the surviver of bowel obstruction surgery), Precious and Liebchen.

Choco,Nestle,Precious,Liebchen
Liebchen,Precious

Here are Liebchen (top) and Precious relaxing after their first agility trial.

Rocket,Sadie,Brutus

This is Rocket with Sadie and Brutus, my two puppy fosters. A little difference in size!

Moxie

This is my mother's rescue, Moxie, who now rules the McCardell household in Iowa.

Rocket

This is Rocket Man, my HW+ foster. He's doing very well but is not pleased about being on a diet!!


Dexter,Wes

The following photos really depict a success story. They are of Wes and his dog, Dexter. Dexter was adopted from Lynn and John, waited for weeks for transport, was unhappy during the transport and bit a couple of people. So, he was deemed too aggressive for a child and almost recalled. It turned out to be a match made in heaven (by Lister?), as can be seen in the pictures. Wes's mom says she frequently has both dog and boy in timeout. When one gets into trouble the other is right there with him!!! <VBG>

Dexter,Wes

Wes and Dexter playing in the backyard -- what a yard, big enough for a dozen pins and their boys!

Dexter,Wes
Dexter,Wes

Here's Dexter jumping to get a toy from Wes. I think you'll all agree, this dog is truly home!!!! :-) :-)

Dexter,Dad

This is Wes's dad with Dexter. He was not home when Dexter arrived, and there was a little concern that the two "men" would not be compatible.

Herc & Brutus Update

Fri, 12 May 2000 12:44:55 -0600 - from Brutus & Herc, via Sue

mp2a  
 
 

Hi Sue:

Just a note to tell you how we are doing and to thank you for finding us a new home.

 
We are out here in north central Kansas with a farmer who was kind of tough on us to start with making us mind and walk on a leash and all kind of things like that, he even made Herc lose some weight and then he took us out and made us run with his 4-wheeler.
 
mp2c mp3a
 
He called it exercising but do you know what Herc and I really like it. We are up to about 3 miles a day at about 10-mph and our 200- yard dash at the end of the run are now up to 25 mph. We have learned how to run and jump; those old tumble weeds no longer jump up and get us we can go right over the top of them now.

As you know Herc is a computer apprentice working on catching the moving mouse and he must be getting pretty good at it as Richard will not use it when Herc is at the desk, myself I'm working on my swimming lifesaving badge. There is nothing better then taking a break in the middle of a long run with a walk down the middle of the creek however there are some deep holes that one has to learn to swim out of, so I am learning lifesaving in case that is needed. I think I must be doing all right because Richard is always saying that mom (Margaret) will really be proud of me and she is always telling me how good I smell.

We must be doing all right as Richard put us in charge of the exercise program for those dumb old bird dogs. You know what a bunch of girls are like with nothing to do but eat and sleep they needed help.
 

mp1 mp2b
 
As you can see in picture mp1 I am up front leading and showing the girls where to go and Herc is in the rear making sure they get there.

We are sending some other photo's most of Herc the big show off but you can see that we are on duty and happy about it.

We also have to keep watch over the house as the people we live with will just let any one in and you know what that could lead to. Herc and I have worked out a plan where he lays on the sofa under a blanket and I lay directly on top of him, that way when the swan's man (or any one else) comes in its not one dog its two and a big surprise.
 

mp3b mp3c
 
Richard, the guy you gave to us leaves a little to be desired, like not cleaning our half of the pick up windshield. I swear some times you can't see out for the smears and dog prints but all in all Herc and I have decided that we will keep him.

If we decide to enroll in K.U. next year we'll let you know in plenty of time to help us find a room, but I would not count on us coming down there as it looks as if we are needed here.

Your 4 pawed friends

Brutus and Herc

Pics of Keets (formerly Brutus)

Fri, 2 Jun 2000 14:30:26 -0500 - from Kim

Pic1

We adopted Keets (formerly Brutus) from Sue Mohr the first part of May, and what a wonderful little guy we recieved!! He's so full of energy he's wearing our five year old out (and she's loosing weight too). We couldn't have gotten a more affectionate puppy, friendly to everyone, and a real winner with my son's friends (they wouldn't let him go to the prom with Nick, I guess he needed a bow tie too. Thanks Sue from the whole Conquest gang!!

Taz,Angie

Hi Mag,

Here is a picture of Taz with his new mom, Angie Wright here in Kansas. He got to spend the very first weekend with her at the Lake of the Ozarks where her entire family promptly fell in love with him! He's a small min pin, beautiful red stag, but so chubby he looks like a hedgehog right now! LOL However, Angie already has him on prescription diet food and is dedicated to exercising both of them, so it won't be long!

Sue

And from Angie's mom....

Wanted to send along a picture of the latest success stories for your Min Pins. Angie is very happy with Taz, and it appears that Taz is quite content with his new owner.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks - Luv ya.

Hi!
Here are a couple of pictures of Peter and one of Zoie. He's doing great! They are tolerating each other a little better, I know it will take time for them both to adjust.
We'll write more later.

Many Pix from Sue

Fri, 8 Dec 2000 16:28:28 -0600 - from Sue

Hi Mag,

Finally scanned some pictures I should have sent long ago. I'll send one at a time. The one labeled "Dex-Wes" is of Dexter who was fostered by Lynn and John in Georgia, finally transported to his new family in Kansas City, bit someone on the way, and was almost pulled from his new home. Obviously, he's doing just fine!

Des-Wex

The next four are of Millie of the Ohio puppymill bust last year. Rie had named her Fannie. She was the smallest of the three chocolate females, and originally we thought she might be pregnant, but wasn't. She's also doing very well in her new home!

Millie
 
Millie

Petie

The last is Petie who was found as a stray in Kansas City, fostered by new volunteers Paul and Cheryl Belcher who adopted him after having him one day!

Pics of Simon and brother PePe`

Sat, 27 Jan 2001 15:22:36 -0800 - from Geraldine

Simon

This is an up of our boy Simon, (Mo. Puppymill Dog)

Simon has been "HOME" two weeks Today!

He has two new brothers; Casey (7 yr. old Golden Retriever) and PePe` Le Pew (2 yr. old MinPin), and a sister - our Pack Leader - Nellie (7 yr. old German Sheperd/Chow Chow mix).

Simon quickly established a bond with each of the dogs. There was almost an instant trust between them. We used this to our advantage - you see Simon does not trust Humans at all. Casey's job the first week was to lead Simon in and out of the house. PePe` is the youngest and most playfull, so he appointed himself as tour guide of the house. Of course this included the important stops like my bed - the heated waterbed, Pam's bed - with the electric blanket, the best sunbathing spots in the house and, the two "look-out" spots - I think of them as Doggie TV.

Pepe,Simon

He preferrs to sleep with Pam under the electric blanket, with his head on her shoulder. She said he is becoming quite a BED HOG!

Pepe` Le Pew

Each day Simon is becoming more relaxed and less afraid. We are very careful not to raise our voices to him, or push him to do something, if we do he runs outside and cowers in the farthest corner of the yard, and Pam or I have to carry him into the house and gently assure him that it's OK.

I do believe that with a little more time Simon will feel more at home - he has already found a home in our hearts. Thank again to IMPS for bringing Simon to us. -- BEAN

Pic of Beanie

Thu, 1 Feb 2001 09:42:50 -0600 - from Sue

Beanie and family

Hi Mag,

Here is a picture of our little Beanie, 5 pounds if he's an ounce, with his new mom, Mrs. Colson, and two of her grandchildren. They live in Makato, KS. Beanie came into rescue with Lady, both strays, and were fostered by Joy Haig in Wichita.

Beanie is quite happy in his new home. Mrs. Colson's son is Richard Colson who adopted Hercules and Brutus from us, and is fostering Rocket Man. (He's the farmer who exercises the pins through the fields on his 4-wheeler. There are pictures of them elsewhere on the site.) Richard's mom still lives in the house on the farm; Richard lives in town, though only 5 or so miles away. Beanie won't go outside in the snow and cold for his mom, so Richard goes twice a day to let him out. Richard is amazed at how much such a little dog can hold, but he never has accidents in the house!

A week or so after Mrs. Colson had Beanie, she had a hair appointment in town. Richard said, "we worried for two days about what to do with the dog..." He suggested putting him in the bathroom, but she was afraid Beanie would get cold and said he'd be all right loose in the house. However, Richard brought out a babygate and shut him in the bathroom with the door open. When they returned home, there was Beanie in the living room lying on the rug in front of the wood stove. Comment from his mom, "....see, I told you he'd be all right!"

Beanie is truly home!!

Agility Pics from Sue

Fri, 23 Feb 2001 14:53:09 -0600 - from Sue

These pictures were taken of Choco, Liebchen and Precious at our last agility trial.

Choco Choco
Choco qualified in all her classes, winning two of them with a perfect score of 100 points and 15 seconds under the course time. She will now be competing in the AKC Open division.
Liebchen Liebchen
Liebchen garnered a qualifying run in Open Jumpers with Weaves, 100 points and 10 seconds under time;
Precious Precious
Precious won both her Excellent A Jumpers with Weaves, also perfect scores and 7 seconds under the course time. She is now competing in Excellent B in both Standards (all the obstacles) and Jumpers with Weaves.

Of course this means all three of my dogs are now in divisions difficult enough for them to be "Handler Challenged"! LOL

Mokka's New Home

Thu, 5 Apr 2001 11:00:58 -0600 - from Sue

Hi Mag,

Here's a note from Mokka's new home. He was one of the first set of BYB dogs we took in here in Kansas this last month. Mokka is the b/t you can barely see snuggled under the blankets!


Mokka (B/T) and his siblings

To all of Mokka's Angels,
Thank you all for helping Mokka find his way "home"!!!! We adore him and he is settling in well. He sleeps in a crate at night but that will soon end as he is doing so good at housebreaking. He tries to bite my Husband when he is picked up or petted unless I am there to "coo" at him. He lets me brush his few teeth and bathe him w/o much of a fuss. We are trying to teach him how to NOT wet himself when going potty and he is showing minor improvement. His breath is still horrific but we get through the kisses anyway.
Our Chi. PePe is adjusting.....slowly. They attempted to play a few times and it is quite a joy to see.
Attached is a photo of Mokka and his siblings after bath and ready for bed.
I thought you might like to know that this placement seems to be working out beautifully.
Thanks, Brenda and the Gang

Sadie update

Tue, 10 Apr 2001 10:42:13 -0600 - from Sue

Hi Mag,

Here is a note from Sadie. She is the little dog who came to IMPS from a shelter in Missouri accompanied by her 3 week old puppy in November of last year. Sadie and baby lived with me until January 13, when they both went to their new families. Sadie's new dad flew all the way to Kansas City from Edmonton, Canada to take her home.


Dune,Mom,Sadie

Hi there, here are some pictures one of me with my mom and big brother Dune and one of me with my friend Betty the Bassett...she is Todd and Andrea's child but she visits us when they go on vacation. We go to visit her on Saturdays and I get to play with her. My mom says that I am the most perfect little dog in the whole world and I am very happy. I won't forget you though, andI will always be grateful that you rescued me and looked after me until I went to live with my mom and dad. Talk to you soon.

Love, Sadie

Betty,Sadie
