IMPS: Minpin in Charleston, SC

Mon, 30 Aug 1999 13:57:04 -0400 - from Emily

Petie is adding this new rescue to the list for me, but I thought I'd send the vitals out to the list.

Name: Tazzie
Sex: Female (to be spayed)
Color: Black/ Dark Rust
Age: 6 years
Weight: not sure, but she is a little heavy.
Good with other dogs--preferably small.
Very playful, but a little timid; loves to cuddle and be with someone.
Working on house-training. I will personally work on crate-training (if the CPR rep hasn't yet).

Tazzie is currently with a representative of Carolina Purebred Rescue in Myrtle Beach, SC. CPR is turning Tazzie over to IMPS because they feel we have better resources for minpins. I will be picking her up on September 9.

Tazzie is an owner turn-in. Her former owner is in her 70s and is worried about what will happen to her dogs if something were to happen to her. Tazzie has lived her life on a glassed-in porch (not inside until the CPR member got her) with a chihuahua. Her former owner played with her approximately an hour per day.

Tazzie will receive full vet treatment once I get her. She is already scheduled for a vet visit on Sept. 18 (Buddy and Glory already had an appointment for this day). She will get all of her shots, heartworm then. I'm hoping to get her into our Low Cost Spay/Neuter clinic in early October. They are booked for September and won't be taking Oct. appointments until Wednesday. I'll call and try to get her in the first week of October. This clinic is less than a mile from where I work, so it's also pretty convenient.

Tazzie won't be available until after her spay. I hope she doesn't have heartworm or any other health problems. The CPR representative didn't think she'd had regular vet visits, so that's always a possibility. :-(

This will be my first foster/rescue. I mean, both of my dogs are from rescue, but this will be my first as an IMPS volunteer. Keep your fingers crossed. She seems like a sweet girl!

IMPS: Rescue in SC

Fri, 10 Sep 1999 09:00:19 -0400 - from Emily

Well, we picked up Tazzie last night. What a sweetie!! She is so tiny--less than 9" tall and around 6 pounds. But she is a sweetheart. Buddy is suffering from immense jealousy. He will NOT leave my side! Glory just wants to play and Tazzie isn't quite ready for that. She's still getting used to everything.

This is a sweet girl. I don't think we'll have any problem placing her. The only negative is her age-6 years, but she's so sweet that I don't see that being a problem. She's so tiny, you just want to snuggle with her and protect her. What a sweetie!!

She will get the full vet visit next Saturday and will be spayed the following week. Her previous owner couldn't remember if she'd been spayed or not. However, she seems a little swollen, so probably not. We'll just get that taken care of.

Mike has totally taken to her. He wouldn't even let me hold her on the way home. Both Glory and Buddy are my dogs, so he's really trying with Tazzie. It might be hard for him to give her up if she attaches herself to him (fingers crossed). :-)

I will send in the questionnaire so we can get her on the website and hope to take some pics this weekend.

Tazzie has a home!

Fri, 17 Sep 1999 14:07:30 -0400 - from Emily

Well, I am happy to report that Tazzie has found her forever home. She will be going to live in Wilmington, NC next weekend (after her vet visit and spay). She will share her home with another minpin and a lab mix. Jennifer, Tazzie's new Mama, received a great recommendation from her vet and personal reference, so I have no qualms about placing Tazzie with her. And she is so excited to bring this little sweetheart home!

I am so glad that my first attempt at rescue/foster has gone so well. Tazzie is such a sweet girl and I hate to see her go, but I know this is best for her. And I think that Buddy will be glad that he doesn't have to share him Mama anymore! But really, he and Glory have been real troupers and did so well with Tazzie. Glory just follows her everywhere!

I will get my film developed and then send pics to Mag for the website. She really is a sweetheart--rarely barks (I didn't think it possible!). She did great with my cousin's two- and four-year old children and is just generally a really sweet, calm girl!

Well, I'm glad to have good news to report after all of the bad news about the hurricane! Mark another one up for IMPS!!!! Thanks, Lister!

Mag,

As promised, here are two pictures of Tazzie. She weighs about 7 pounds and is super sweet. She'll be going to her new home in North Carolina on Saturday!! I will definitely miss her!

Thanks,
