Pippa's Story...
Read more about me here.

Description: She may look like a beautiful, tri-factored, sable collie, but beneath the surface beats the heart of a bloodhound. Pippa is single minded and unstoppable when she is on the hunt for small woodland creatures like squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits. In fact, when her foster home had problems with a groundhog, Pippa made it her personal mission to track down the intruder. Fortunately for the groundhog, her foster family live-trapped and relocated him before Pippa could put a permanent end to that February 2nd holiday!

Pippa came to MWCR from another rescue where she had been turned in as a stray. For this reason we know very little about her past and can only guess at her age. She has obviously lived indoors and is a very well mannered house guest: fully house trained with no destructive behaviors. She never gets on the furniture and is quite happy to sleep on the floor or a doggie bed. She behaves well when being groomed and knows the basic commands of “come,” “sit” and “give paw.” She has a bit of trouble with “stay,” primarily because she really likes to follow her foster mom around. She loves to go for walks. Pippa is intimidated by a long flight of stairs, but has no trouble with the steps leading into her foster home.

Pippa is a friendly, gentle girl who likes everyone but seems to bond particularly closely to one person. She loves being with that person and will follow her special human around like a loving little shadow. There are no young children in her foster home, but she gets along well with the teenagers there and would probably be fine with younger kids if they were gentle and respectful. She is friendly with strangers. Pippa gets along with most other dogs, though she is a dominant female and would do best with a dog that would be submissive to her. According to the person at her original rescue, she loves cats, so she would probably prefer a feline housemate to a canine one.

Pippa is a healthy girl, but she does suffer from separation anxiety and becomes quite vocal when left alone. Her ideal home would be one in which someone was home with her most of the time. A retired person or couple or someone who worked from home would be perfect. She will definitely need a fenced yard to prevent her from being led astray by a passing squirrel or bunny.

Pippa is a smaller collie, but she has a huge heart and is ready to lavish love on her new, forever family. She will be a caring companion and best friend to that special someone who makes her their own. Oh, and if you have a groundhog problem, consider it fixed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pippa, a Minneapolis Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Collie dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Minneapolis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie breeders who help with Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
