About Chatty Cathy

Meet Chatty Cathy! Chatty Cathy came to SNIPSA along with her sister, Skinnie Minnie. Can you guess how this girl got her name? As soon as she saw us coming, Chatty Cathy greeted us with a happy “yip-yip” and a wag of her tail. She is a very social gal-Cathy loves to chase around her sister and her foster pals! Cuddling is her absolute favorite and she will nap in your arms for hours if she could. Cathy gets along with all-dogs, cats, kids, everyone is a friend to this fun-loving girl! Cathy is crate trained and almost completely house trained with just a few accidents every now and then in her foster’s house. Cathy would really like to find her furever home with her sister but will be able to adjust if not. Want to be the best part of Chatty Cathy’s rescue story?

Meet our special gal, Tipper. She has Vestibular Disease; best guess is that it could be due to loss of oxygen while in the birthing canal (according to her neurologist) and is completely deaf. Because of the Vestibular Disease, Tipper has a tendency to run in circles for hours if left alone and will actually do it with you there when she feels stressed. This is Idiopathic Vestibular Syndrome, meaning that no one knows, exactly, what causes it. It mimics a stroke. But Tipper is more than her disease. Sure, she will need a very special adopter but there is always someone for everyone, right?  Tipper is the most loving, gentle little soul ever and is in need of a "special needs companion". Not at all snippy or yippy and rarely barks. She likes all dogs and cats and does not mind car rides. She will not be a good leash candidate but with her small size, she is happy to tote along with you in a little bag!  She will sit in your lap and snuggle and sleep with you but she does need assistance getting on and off the bed. Tipper can get through the dog door but cannot seem to figure out how to come back through it despite the foster's efforts to make it easy for her to come back in. Tipper would do BEST with a family that has a stay at home person. She is very good with older children but because of her uncontrollable head tilts, she would do best without smaller children holding her. Tipper tags along with her foster mom everywhere-into stores, restaurants, etc-so she is very well socialized and enjoys just sitting in her bag or her foster's lap. Tipper does not do well in a kennel At ALL- she will circle and throw her head around. So if she needs to be contained, a small, gated area is more desirable. You have to be mindful of her eating because the side of her brain that was damaged is the side that tells her stomach when to quit eating. She will eat ALL day and All night if she has something available so Tipper will need to be put on a strict meal plan. We know this sounds like a lot but once she is on a routine, Tipper is easy to manage and has nothing but love to give. Do you have room in your home and your heart for Tipper?
