|Personality:|| Average Energy, Submissive |
|Health:|| Spayed, Vaccinations Current | FOSTER LOCATION: Boise, ID Sweet Pip is a timid, adorable little Min Pin. The vet estimates that she is around a 1 year old, she loves to play like a puppy. This adorable little girl has had a rough go of it the past few months but she has come out on top! Pip has recently recovered from both Parvo and from Mange; she is healthy now (though is still growing back some tufts of hair) and ready to find her new family. Pip is very smart and is always making her foster humans smile and laugh. She has the sweetest little face, and even though she is a little timid, it is clear how much she just wants to love and be loved. Pip takes a while to ... (Read More)warm up to humans but immediately was comfortable with the four other dogs in her foster home. She loves to follow them around and within minutes figured out how to use the dog door, find the toy bucket and beg for treats! She loves to play with her foster pack, and spends hours wrestling and chasing a similarly aged pup. The presence of the other dogs helped her to overcome much of her timidness and trust her foster humans. But don't let her initial reaction to strangers fool you, Pip is full of life and LOVES to play. She could entertain herself for hours with a good toy and has been known to do so in the middle of the night. She loves a good head and neck rub (seriously, she closes her little eyes and looks so happy). With Pip it is all about patience and letting her feel like she is ready for you to give her that attention that she adores. She frequently tucks her tail under and runs away, even after running up to greet you. But don't worry, a minute later once she feels braver she comes around for her rubs and cuddles. Pip will need another playful/friendly dog that could help with her confidence. She needs a home that is willing to be patient and gentle with her as she learns to trust and become less skittish. A home without children under 15 is a requirement. This girl has been diagnosed with chronic dry eye and will need eye drops 2-3 times a day possibly for life. The drops cost about $50 a month depending on where you buy them they could be a bit less. Pip is spayed, current on shots and has a microchip Pip's adoption fee is $100 If you have the patience and the heart to invest in a sweet little shy dog Pip would love to join your family and make you laugh yourself silly.
