Arrival Story:
Zippy was born in Italy to a dog belonging to a friend's landlord. My friends took care of the litter (and got the Mom spayed.) They couldn't keep Zippy, so they tried to give her away outside the post exchange. I thought she was adorable, but didn't think I could take her. A few weeks later, the vet told me they had a pup that would have to go to the post in Vicenza, where she would be put to sleep if she didn't get a home. I couldn't bear to let that happen, so against the wishes of my family and Julietta, I adopted Zippy. (Her original name was "Lucky," but we think Zippy fits her well.)

Zippy is an amazing escape artist. She can climb fences and squeeze through tiny spaces, so she has to be watched every minute. Luckily, she's a tad overweight, so that keeps her in the yard a little better now.
