Arrival Story:
Pippin was another nameless dog at the animal shelter. He was rescued on 5/3/05 because although several people were interested in him, they seemed to lose interest when they found out he needed his teeth cleaned. He's a really cute and sweet little dog. Well, his teeth are clean now! He had blood work and got his neuter done (finally at age 12!) He’s the perfect senior because he’s still got good energy for walks (up and down the canyon) but he’s also ready to snuggle anytime (and he’s a great snuggler). He loves going for car rides with his face in the breeze and he makes little "E.T." noises when you give him a neck and back rub. He's a good eater, too, unlike other chihuahuas I've fostered -- I won't name names . . . Diego and Elroy. ; )

Bio:
6/11/05: Pippin was adopted today by a woman who has two teenage daughters so he will have lots of people to love him throughout the day. I thought this woman's story was nice: She had a dog 7 years ago but it died of parvo and she was so heartbroken she couldn't think about getting another dog until she happened to see Pippin on Petfinder.com and thought she'd like to provide him a good home for his remaining years. Aaaah. I've met the greatest people while fostering these animals!! Bye Pippin, I know you'll have a wonderful life (see bottom photo). **UPDATE: Pippin's owner came into Petsmart today (1/17/09) and told us that he passed away three weekends ago, which would be around 12/27/08. He was probably about 15 years old.

I've Been On Dogster Since:
