Tippy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.

Tippy's Story...
This is Tippy. She is 12 years old and a Tibetan Spaniel/Pekingese mix. Tippy was one of three dogs who became OSCAR dogs when their owner passed away. The other two found their forever homes, but Tippy is still searching. Tippy has been to several adoption events. Watching her at these events, we can't help but imagine what's going through her mind. To lose her owner and her forever home and have to attend adoption events, she must be one confused little girl. But, through it all, she remains a loving and sweet dog that would make someone very happy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tippy, a Sparta Tibetan Spaniel/Pekingese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Tibetan Spaniel/Pekingese for sale in Sparta, or seeking a Tibetan Spaniel/Pekingese dog from a breeder in Sparta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sparta 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 Sparta 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 Tibetan Spaniel/Pekingese breeders who help with Tibetan Spaniel/Pekingese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sparta paves the way for another one to be saved.
