Pippi's Story...
t is said that cats have nine lives. Pippi can attest to the fact that she has had several. She was brought into the CAA shelter as a stray in February of this year as a floppy eared grinning pup, then adopted in early April. But, that is not the end of her story. She reappeared again as a stray at CAA in the summertime, but unrecognizable. She was now a long legged 'tweenager' with a debilitating case of mange. Her shiny black coat was patchy and bald, her skin a mass of weeping and crusted sores. Most shelter dogs in this condition are culled, but the staff remembered Pippi, loved her sweetness and respected her warrior spirit. Her mange was treated and she morphed back into a beautiful glossy haired pup.

But there her life stalled. Day in and day out Pippi waited for an adopter to recognize and reward her ugly duckling/beautiful black swan story. The winds of change blew through the shelter and there were whisperings that perhaps Pippi's cage should be vacated and that she should be replaced by a more adoptable dog.

In her current life, Pippi with the long white stockings, lolloping lopsided grin, satellite dish ears and eyes the color of carefully steeped tea, shares her foster home with six other dogs of all sizes. She is best buds with all of them, including the older alpha mini pin. Pippi is a year old, full grown at about 35 pounds and heart worm negative. She is housebroken, crate trained and a world class snuggler. Pippi greets each day with joy and happiness, a carefully chosen plush toy in her mouth, and a smile so broad she may indeed swallow her own ears.

For more info on Pippi, contact her foster mom at pdcarson@cox.net or stop by The Adoption House on Highland Rd. Pippi will be there waiting for you with a smile so big she may just swallow her own ears.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pippi, a Baton Rouge Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Baton Rouge, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Baton Rouge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Baton Rouge paves the way for another one to be saved.
