Pippin needs: Who’s ready to have some fun!! Hi everybody. I’m Pippin. I am a spayed female Chihuahua/Terrier mix puppy, about 4 months old and currently weigh 9 pounds and will probably weigh a bit over 20 pounds as an adult. I was surrendered by a family who could not take care of me, so I found my way to SBRET.

My favorite thing to do is play with my stuffed toys, especially the ones that squeak. I love chasing my ball and will bring it back to you to throw again. I also love being outdoors when the weather is nice and foster mom or dad go with me. They think I’m funny and laugh at my antics all the time! They play with me some, and sometimes I play by myself and I end up taking a nap. Foster mom puts me and my toys beside her while she works, and I usually fall asleep if everyone else is busy and I’ve had some exercise.

At night I sleep all night beside their bed in my big crate. I don’t have accidents in my crate at night and am in there about 7 hours. I am learning that it is best to go outside (I get a treat!), especially if it’s not raining. I of course need you to go with me when I go outside. I will also use a pee pad if you do not get me outside right on time. I still need some work in the potty-training area but I am doing really well for my age.

I am used to being on a leash when outside in the yard but I haven’t been on any long walks yet. I’m good in the car inside my little crate and usually go to sleep on rides. My hair is short and smooth – I don’t foresee any special grooming needs. I was with other dogs before being surrendered to SBRET so I probably would enjoy a buddy but it is not a requirement.

My vet said I’m a healthy, active puppy! Because I’m a puppy, I need someone at home most of the day to continue my potty and other training. I will chew on everything within reach, so please have plenty of toys and nylon bones for me to play with. I will require gentle consistent correction and lots of positive reinforcement. And of course, lots of exercise because you know a good puppy is a tired puppy!

I have been spayed, microchipped, and am current on age-appropriate vaccines as well as flea and heartworm preventives. My adoption fee is $175.
