Pippy is a 4 year old male Corgi cross Chihuahua. He was relinquished into our care after the tragic death of his mum. He has not had a great deal of socialisation in his little life, his mum didn’t leave the flat so he was limited to who he met. As you can imagine the whole thing was incredibly traumatic for poor Pippy and in the weeks leading up to it many people visited the flat causing more anxiety as he didn’t understand what was happening to him or his Mum and why people he didn’t know were in his space.
Pippy was incredibly shut down and completely broken hearted when he arrived but he has now really started to turn around and we are seeing a wonderful new side of him. He is very sweet and affectionate when he knows you, he loves playing with toys and has also started playing with other dogs now which is just wonderful to see. Initially it was thought he was dog aggressive but he was actually just very scared. He’s been really great with all the dogs here; big and small.
Pippy needs a patient understanding adopter who will give him the time he needs to make sense of things. He may well not want anyone to touch him for a couple of days and we are looking for someone who will respect that and give him the space and time he needs to decompress. Due to the fact that Pippy will bite if fearful he cannot be homed with children.
Pippy is housebroken and crate trained, he is quiet and non destructive in the home and happy to be left for reasonable durations of time. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and will be subject to a home check and adoption donation. He will also come with 4 weeks free insurance and a voucher for a box of free food.
