Looking for a little guy who'll bring some pep to your step? 

If you love puppies (who doesn't?), then you'll absolutely adore Pippin. He's a spunky chihuahua/rat terrier mix with the cutest ears, and loves to play and cuddle in equal measure. He's also a social butterfly and easily makes friends with strangers. 

Pippin's foster mama says that he likes to engage other dogs in play and is full of that joyful, rambunctious puppy energy. He's even learned how to play fetch! But little Pippin also loves to snuggle into your jacket and take a nice long nap. 

Pippin is still a puppy, so he'll need an owner who is willing to be patient and spend time on training. He's bright, friendly, and has the wiggliest butt, and you'll love watching him graduate from a tiny puppy to a grown-up dog! 

Prior to adoption, all dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm, vaccinated (including rabies, if age appropriate) and microchipped.

Typically, after you meet the rescue pet, we will follow up with you to see how the meeting went. If a match is made, we can finalize the adoption quickly. Please note that we may require a home check as part of the application process. Thank you for your interest in our rescue pets!
