A volunteer had the following lovely comments about Pippa:

 Pippa lives for attention and affection from people, and when I go into her cage, she’s almost overwhelmed with excitement. Unfortunately, this means she doesn’t “show” well in her kennel, and I think a lot of people are missing a truly wonderful dog because of this.The thing is, once you get her outside and spend a few minutes with her, the true Pippa shows through, and I think it’s impossible not to recognize what a great dog she really is. It’s tough to put into words, but some dogs have an incredibly resilient spirit and the ability to enjoy life and love people regardless of anything that has happened in the past. Pippa will play fetch or tug-of-war for hours on end, and she does it with a sparkle in her eye and an obviously joyous spirit. When you watch her play and chase the ball, she’s so focused, like a laser beam, and she’s actually really coordinated and can catch balls thrown into the air or off the bounce. I feel like she’d love a family with a teenager or two that would throw her the ball or wrestle with her, or someone who loves hiking and the outdoors. She’s not interested in other dogs and clearly prefers people, and she absolutely adores people that she knows. A lot of times I’ll have other dogs outside next to her or take other dogs for walks nearby, and she never takes her eyes off me. She is also very food motivated and learns commands like “sit” and “down” very quickly. As much as any dog I’ve worked with out there, this dog deserves a chance to have a loving family of her own and if you give her a that chance, you won’t regret it.

Pippa recently helped out with an event at a local brewery. She had so much fun!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested in to a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
