Pippa is a big, goofy chiller. This polite lady with a dependable and gentle nature is looking for a forever family with excellent ball throwing skills. She can be a little reserved at first but once she bonds with you loves to lean in for a scratch and a pat. She is easy going and just likes to be involved in what you're doing. If she seems to be missing she is probably on the couch. She's happy to go along with whatever you are doing and follows your direction in her own laid back way. She has previously been mostly an outside dog but is absolutely no issue as an inside dog: is not destructive at all and let’s herself in and out through the doggy door to the toilet. No accidents inside at all. She can be a little stubborn but just wants to please and appreciates consistent boundaries. She has lived with and is reportedly good with kids though her foster carer hasn’t seen this.
Pippa has lived with a dog in the past. She doesn’t like dogs that get up in her face so will not make a good dog park dog. She is interested in other dogs she sees on the street but doesn’t like to be surprised. She can be reactive with dogs that surprise her or get up in her face but is generally calm and wags her tail.
Pippa is great on the lead. If you are looking for a jogging companion she would be perfect as she prefers a slow jog to a walking pace. Regardless of how fast you walk or run she doesn't pull on the lead and takes good direction from you. She likes to stop and sniff and will make friends with dog people she meets on the street if she gets a chance. She sits politely on her own accord for a pat. She can sit and wait when out on a walk as well as sit and wait for her food. Pippa is house trained.
Pippa is loveable in that she's a gentle and reassuring presence with a big smile. She is especially cute when she is dreaming. This no nonsense, laid back girl just wants to come along on whatever adventure you're on, especially if the adventure is snuggling on the couch.
Definitely no cats please.
