I just wanted to post a plug for a charity dear to my heart.
IMPS (Internet Miniature Pinscher Service) is currently running an adoption special to place older dogs. For a limited time, not only is the adoption fee waived for any dog over the age of 10, they'll pay 50% of their routine medical bills for the rest of their lives. Min Pins have a life span of about 17 years. So if you're looking for a fantastic dog, please check out this site:
