Meet Dipper

Dipper is very healthy. He is neutered, microchipped and has all of his shots. He can be a sweet, playful and affectionate puppy. He is 100% house trained. He sleeps beautifully through the night and knows "sit" and "down" really well. He loves most other dogs and is very playful. At doggy day care, he gets along with the other dogs as long as they are as big or bigger than him and not too alpha. Where he has trouble is on walks and with strangers. He barks at strangers who come into the yard. He is quite anxious on walks and wants to go back home when on a walk. He pulls on his leash and barks at other dogs. His current owner has been working with a trainer in a positive reinforcement method to get him more comfortable with walks but he is still fearful. The dog trainer said that on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, Dipper is a 5 on the sensitive/mistrusting scale.

Because Dipper is initially fearful with strangers and barks at them, he needs an experienced dog owner who understands this behavior. Also, he needs to be in a quiet home without young children.

If you are interested in meeting and thinking about adoption, please visit our website, http//www.wagginghearts.org, and submit a completed adoption application. Due to the high volume of applications we receive we are only able to process fully completed applications. All applications are processed in the order that they are received. On our website you will also find our adoption process and fees. Since we are a foster based rescue we are unable to set up meet and greets until a completed application is on file and has been approved.

Wagging Hearts is a foster-based, non-profit rescue organization.
