Pippa - Teesside


UPDATE SEPT 2019 from her foster home:

Update on Timber and Pippa, our fostered furbabies, now ready to find their forever home.

Timber came to us as a huge 48kg teddy bear, loves to be loved and so laid back. He has been neutered while in foster and all vaccinations now up to date. He charms everyone he meets, when he gives you his huge paw you know it! He has now lost a few kilo with regular visits to the beach and walks which he loves. He is strong on a short lead but soon settles, he does prefer a good extendable lead. 

Pippa came to us as a very timid girl, hid behind Timber and wary of strangers. She has since found her confidence with living with us in a busy household, we have visitors daily of all ages, once she has had a sniff she will come back and settle for a fuss.

Timber & Pippa are living with our 2 pooches, and have regular visits from other family dogs. There has never been any issues at all with them meeting small, large, male or female dogs, we have a menagerie in our mad house!

They are both excellent with children, from our 7 month old grandson who they are both so gentle with, to our 13 year old teenager who Pippa is quite attached to. They ideally should stay together.

Original post:

Unfortunately Pippa needs to be re-homed due to her owner dying suddenly. 

At first I could not get anywhere near Pippa as she is so timid. She is a lovely dog and did not show any sign of aggression at all. Although she did bark when I first entered the property she soon calmed down. Eventually she did let me stroke her when she was eating her dinner. This was the only time i could get near her.

Pippa lives with 2 other dogs Timber and Cassie. They all get on very well.

I was informed that she gets on well with the daughters dogs but not sure with other dogs as she has not been socialised with dogs outside of the property.

Whoever adopts this lovely dog will need to be very patient with her. Once she gets to know you I am certain she will be a very loving companion.

We are desperate to keep Pippa & Timber together. Pippa is shy and really needs her companion to be able to move forward.
