Sonny Sonny

Hey to everyone at IMPS-

I just wanted to send a quick hello to introduce myself. I just became an IMPS volunteer today, March 26 2008. My name is Tammie. I'm looking forward to giving back what they have given me in the form of my baby Sonny. He is 1 years old... My best friend who I just adopted Dec. 19, 2007

Quick Update - Sonny

Tammie and Sonny

I just wanted to send in a picture of Sonny and myself taken on 5/30/08. He is doing well and enjoying his new life here with me. If anyone knows a good trainer, please let me know. Sonny is aggressive at times towards strangers and other dogs so I just want to make sure he is having a fully satisfied life. He's been to group training at Petco, but it didn't really work as well as I would've liked. Thanks!!

Annie - Adopted from IMPS Sept. 2007

Annie

Hi Mag,

I am writing b/c every now and again I look around the IMPS website to see if there are any local Min Pins that need a good home. The last couple of months I have noticed a growing number that have special needs and was compelled to write about our experience. I think a lot of people shy away from dogs with any special needs and so I am hopeful our story will help change the mindset of others.

I adopted a red female, Annie, in Sept '07 from IMPS Pa/NJ and worked with Jessica N. Annie was a special needs dog and we were able to get her off all her meds (3 different pills) in a matter of months by ensuring her diet was full of all natural dog food and nutritional treats. She was found on the streets of Trenton, NJ, had mange and was skin and bones when we got her. Annie enjoys her crate (it's her safe haven) and has to sleep there at night b/c she has an overactive bladder, but aside from that she has been a great addition to our family. She is still the only one in the pack that can be walked off the leash and will not run. Annie use to be very timid, on the defense, and afraid of everything, but over time she became a very loving, affectionate girl and embraces any opportunity to give hugs. The vet she started with while in Jessica's care had a muzzle note in her file b/c she bit a couple of employees and today, no muzzle is needed! It was also recommended by IMPS that Annie be the only dog w/no kids in the house and I am happy to report we had Wesley first, followed by Annie and then Joey and she loves her brothers as well as the kids in the family. The moral of our story is don't shy away from a Min Pin with behavior problems and/or medical problems b/c they need us more than words can describe and you can teach an old dogs new tricks with lots of love and attention!

We have three min pins all together; Wesley adopted via PetFinder and Joey who we consider our "oops" and rescued him from a mall pet store that me and my family don't care for b/c we believe some, or possibly, all of the dogs come from puppy mills. We live in a well known area for puppy mills, Lancaster County, PA. If I had the time and money I would have a shelter of my own :-)

Thanks for your time and all that you do for the breed!

Deva

Date: Sat, 6 Nov 2010 17:40:44 -0400 - from Jaime

Deva

I want to thank IMPS for making my adoption of Deva a great experience. I rescued her on September 26th 2004 in New Jersey. Her IMPS tag number is 009622.

Deva touched many of lives, everyone that she came in contact with. That is with her own terms at least. ; ) She had a personality like no other. Her sister is a cat named Raja that I adopted 3 years after Deva. Deva needed a companion while I was working. Deva and Raja became the best of friends and they played with each other constantly.

Deva

She enjoyed visits to the nursing home where her grandmother, my mother, enjoyed feeding her cheese puffs. Deva enjoyed these each time when she saw her. Deva would put a smile on everyone's face there.

Deva

She also enjoyed walking in animal rescue events to bring awareness and hope for other adoptions. She recently walked in the BARCSoctoberfest in Baltimore October 23rd. Deva enjoyed the day of attention that everyone gave her and the all the treats she got to sample.

Deva

Deva became real sick a week ago and I took her to the animal hospital where they found a mass in her stomach. Deva must have been fighting this for quite some time but never once did she show me her pain. Deva was a very strong dog and gave so much love to everyone she met. Deva will be greatly missed by many. I want to thank IMPS for making it possible for Deva to have a loving home and for bring Deva in my life which had touched mine and many others. I also want to thank Rosedale Animal Hospital for all the care and support that they have given Deva throughout her life. I know how much you will miss her too.

"Rest in Peace Deva 1999-November 3, 2010"
