Pretty Pippa has a heart on her nose ‘cuz she is so full of love!

Pretty Pippa is a 5 year old, double red merle, female Aussie with a long fluffy tail. She has some vision impairment, but generally gets around very well. She came into rescue heartworm positive and is available to a family committed to completing her slow-kill treatment (antibiotics and monthly heartworm preventatives).

Pippa is a sweet, loving girl, who just wants to be with her people. She is relatively low energy and would make a wonderful family companion – she adores (dog respectful) children! One of her favorite pass times is playing nanny with her foster mom and following the little ones around the yard. Pippa is very inquisitive and doesn’t let her vision impairment get in the way of that! 

Once acclimated to her new surroundings and canine companions, Pippa is pretty much great with everybody she has met! She has even done very well with dog savvy cats in her foster home. Pippa walks well on a leash, but due to her vision impairment is sometimes nervous around unknown obstacles so she sticks close to her human’s side. She does well once she is in her crate – her foster mom is currently working on getting her used to going in on her own. In addition to being heartworm positive, Pippa is a bit overweight at the moment so she is using her time in foster to work on her girlish figure and will be around 45lb once she gets there!

Pippa is currently fostered in Charlotte, NC. Her adoption fee is $250.
