The first step in our adoption process is an application, which you can submit online at www.littlebitsrescue.org It does not obligate you in any way, but we do not arrange meetings or make telephone contact until we have one.
Pippen is a puppy who’d like to grow up in his very own home. He is 5 months old (D.O.B. August 17, 2012) and weighs 8 pounds, so he has probably reached most of his adult size. We know that Pippen’s mother is a purebred shih tzu, and we were told that his father is a bichon frise. He’s as fluffy as a cloud and pretty enough to be on a toy shelf. He had not had much human attention when he came to us and was very shy, but he has warmed up quickly and is now showing signs he wants to play, play, play. As a puppy, he will need someone to work with him on his housetraining. Pippen’s shots are all up to date, and he has been started on heartworm preventative. He will be neutered on Tuesday, January 15, after which he will be ready to go home with his new family. Pippen needs a fenced yard and an adult who is home at least part of the day. He will not be placed in a home with children under the age of 10 or with a dog weighing more than 25 pounds. He will need to be groomed on a regular basis, so please factor that in when deciding whether he’d be a good match for your home. Pippen’s adoption donation is $200, and he is being fostered in Birmingham, Alabama. We do approve out of area adoptions, but you must be willing to drive to the foster home within a week after being approved to “fetch” your new family member. We do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting this sweet baby, the first step is to submit an APPLICATION.
We do not place any dog in a home with "invisible" or underground fencing.
