the shelter. She was just about 12 weeks old.
She was soooo cute!!!

has a favorite stuffed animal. It happens to be a monkey. She suckles
his face as if it were her mamma. Here is a picture of Zoë and
Shiloh. Zoë is suckling her monkey.
is the sweetest Beagle. She knows two speeds, "lightening"
and "out like a light!"
found out that Shiloh had been taken to the shelter by owners who
had been abusive and Shiloh had spent her entire life (9 months) in a
crate. Poor Shiloh was afraid of everything, but she gave kisses
right away. Despite how she had been treated, we saw the spunk in her
eyes, her spirit had not been broken. All she wanted was some love.

WELCOME TO OUR LATEST MEMBER OF THE FAMILY, GENIE!
Genie was a foster dog but we couldn't part with her so we adopted her on July 18, 2002. She is about a year old and is quite a typical, hyper, Miniature Pinscher puppy!
She is a DADDY'S girl and has won her daddy's heart.
She sleeps curled up next to him under the covers.
Genie is a little girl, weighing in at around nine pounds, and LOVES to give kisses!
Don't you love her impish face?
and Shiloh and now Genie share their home from time to time with foster
brothers and sisters. They are very good hostesses and share their
food and toys willingly. We do Miniature Pinscher rescue and fostering
through the (Internet
Miniature Pinscher Service) IMPS.
Fostering Min Pins is very rewarding. We get to watch these little guys go from frightened and starving for affection, to valued members of wonderfuls homes. If you want to see the individual stories on each of our fosters, click on their pictures above. Some will take your to a linking site.

This little angel was the inspiration for me to become a volunteer.
