5 months old
Mixed breed (Whippet? with a small dash of Sharpei?) (13kg)
Pippy was found at the Waitaki Bridge. She is now looking for a new home where she will be loved, cared for and treasured.
Update from foster care:
At the pound Pippy was a wee live wire, and yes she still has lots of energy and gets very excited at times, but we are pleasantly surprised at how lovely she is around the house! No accidents inside, slept through the night in the crate (lots of warm blankets), much calmer around the small fluffy dogs, and lovely indoor manners all round. It shows us again how stressful it is for them - abandoned by owners/pound/then relief of foster care.
Pippy backed off from the cat when hissed at. Wary of sheep. She would need to be trained not to chase cats - ie on lead around them both inside and outside until she has learnt that they are not to be chased and not so focused on them. High drive to chase rabbits.
Pippy is a loving wee girl that wants to please, she is responsive to her name and loves a cuddle. We think she will be medium size. She is a slender build. Older children would be best, younger ones would get her too excited. Travels well in the car and the vet staff thought she was a lovely, happy wee girl.
