Our hearts really go out to little Pippi. This 9 year-old Terrier mix spayed female was adopted from us 8 years ago but recently returned because her family now has young children and Pippa wasn’t handling life in a hectic home with small children well. She spent most of her time hiding in an attempt to avoid interacting with 2 and 4 year-old boys. Pippi needs a quiet mature home where she can relax and snuggle with her people without the fear of encountering frenetic little humans on a regular basis. She is now in a foster home where she loves napping on her comfy bed in her crate. Pippi is crate-trained and housetrained too but may need a bit of a refresher once she goes into a new home. She gets along well with other dogs but prefers her canine companions on the calm side too. Pippi loves to be carried around and is going to make a very loyal and devoted companion for someone who can give her the lifestyle that she desires. Pippi weighs about 7 pounds currently but is very thin and needs to gain a few pounds to be at her ideal weight. Her adoption fee is $150. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. Since coming back to us, Pippa has had a dental cleaning and now has a beautiful smile. She also had a small benign growth removed from one of her front legs. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Pippi. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
