Pippen, “Pip” is a 4-5 year old, red tricolor, Aussie/border collie girl who weighs around 50 pounds (she’s a bit chunky, though).
From day one, Pip has been a happy go lucky, sweet dog, who welcomes you with her happy smile and tail wagging every time you walk through the door. She is full of smiles, and listens well when asked to do something.
Pip has been exercise restricted, due to undergoing HW treatment, however she will likely be a medium-to-high energy level dog when given the opportunity. Pip has been living with two doggy siblings (one small, one big) and gets great with both. Pippen can be picky about her canine companions, so she would likely do best with a male sibling who has a comparable energy level. She has also done well with cats and small children. The one thing Pip loves more than anything is human contact – she is happiest when cuddling with you, getting pets, or just being near you.
Pip rides well in the car, and is crate trained if needed. However, she currently has free reign of the house and has no issues. She walks well on leash, and needs a little work on her recall and some basic manners. Pip’s sweet excitement is one of her greatest qualities, but will also need ongoing training to contain that excitement and from jumping on new guests.
An ideal home for Pip would be an active family, with the willingness and availability to continue with her training and ensure she gets enough daily exercise. She would be great with any siblings (dog or human) to help teach her how to play, and a backyard to play in.
Pippen is up-to-date on all vaccines, has been spayed and microchipped. She is currently fostered in Columbia, SC, and her adoption fee is $300.
