Meet Miss Tippy
Are you looking for a small young dog that's full of energy but also likes to cuddle? Well Miss Tippy just might be your gal! This sweet Chihuahua mix was surrendered by her owner because Miss Tippy was having to spend the majority of her time in a crate. Her owner felt that Miss Tippy deserved a better life and asked us to take her in and find her a more appropriate household. Born in early July 2018, Miss Tippy weighs just a little under 13-lbs and we doubt she'll get much bigger than 15-lbs. She LOVES attention and wants to cover you with kisses when she meets you. Miss Tippy is also very playful and loves to chase after squeaky toys. She gets along nicely with similar-sized dogs. Miss Tippy goes into her crate (which will be sent home with her) as soon as you open the door but, because she spent so much time in her crate in her former home, she may also 'relieve' herself in her crate if the urge hits. While we were told that Miss Tippy isn't house-trained, she has been very good about only using the newspaper to do her business. Because she's so smart, we think she'll be pretty easy to house-train under the supervision of an experienced, patient and consistent adopter. She just finished her vaccinations and is just now able to go outside for leash walks. Although Miss Tippy is very friendly with older children and would be a great fit for a family with children at least 8 years old that are dog savvy and want an playful, affectionate and smart little dog as a canine companion. Just keep in mind that a fenced yard is required. We want Miss Tippy to be safely confined while she runs around the yard playing with her new family! To find out if Miss Tippy would be a good fit for you and your household, just stop by the shelter and ask to meet her. /// MISS TIPPY IS SPONSORED THRU SEPTEMBER 2019 BY VANESSA TAYLOR.
