I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Pippa-ADOPTION PENDING's Story...
Pippa was so fearful as she came into a very high-kill shelter in Texas. She's a sensitive and very kind girl...and through it all she seemed like an old soul...taking it all in. She was never nasty or snippy..just initially fearful of new people who might hurt her. She soon found out otherwise and has spent her shelter time on the laps of shelter personnel...needless to say that she's a favorite. It just isn't in her nature to be anything but sweet. Pippa, at only 18 - 24 months old and 15 lbs represents the sad irresponsibility that is so present when pet guardians choose not to spay/neuter...dogs fighting for their lives that are homeless and confused. These unwanted dogs deserve a great life every bit as much as any other living being. Pippa has a wonderful and endearing puppy personality (once comfortable in her surroundings) and through it all, still has the desire to love and be loved. While initially just a bit shy..she comes around within moments with those who are kind and respectful. She loves to snuggle and show her devotion in so many ways. Pippa loves her relationships with gentle dogs as well...it seems that she derives confidence from being around these positive-energy, like-sized pups. She tries very hard to show that she's worthy of a permanent family to love and nurture her. Her little tail wags hesitantly when she sees a possibility for a pat or any kind gesture. She would be overjoyed if she got gentle attention and it would bring a light to those concerned eyes!
Farfel's is searching for that special family for this exceptional Schnauzer/Cairn mix (or at least that's what the Kansas vets tell us Pippa is..all we know is that she's so adorable!). Pippa is about to get spa treatment for the first time..there won't be a more beautiful girl when she's provided with skin and hair care and great nutrition. Her silly hair (and her adorable, stand-up ears) will frame the kind glow in her eyes that speak of a gentle soul.
We're searching for a family that wants to spend quality time with this exceptional girl. She would learn from the gentle guidance and time put in of people who love her...she'll return that devotion a million times over once she understands what is being asked of her. Pippa ia also a lap dog extraordinaire and would be overjoyed with that quiet, snuggly time spent together. We feel that Pippa would enjoy a home with a retired couple (or individual) or a family with dog-crazy children 12+ who will be gentle and loving (no tail pulling or poking please) toward the this sweet and playful pup.
A positive reinforcement training class would also be great for bonding between Pippa and her people. It will create a true respect and love between family and pup. It's a new world for this sensitive yet fun-loving girl and she'll be so successful with the knowledge that she is loved and chosen to be a member of a very special family.
Pippa appears to be house trained (or well on her way) and is respectful of her foster home. This pup is a non-shedding..or very lightly shedding.. girl and will therefore require periodic baths/brushing to bring out the beauty (adorable markings) and good health of her coat. Pippa isn't suggested for those with severe allergy challenges.
Pippa will arrive on transport in Denver on Thursday 12/18. If interested in this sweet and fun companion, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to email@example.com.
