Pip ARPH #13782
Meet Pip. He lived with one family from a young pup until he was 3 and came to ARPH. In his original home he lived with children, horses, chickens, cats and dogs and did fine with everyone there. He also loved baths, the car and had been swimming. Unfortunately the family did not have time for him so he got overweight and had a lot of pent up energy.
Pip is a super affectionate and sweet dog who loves attention. Pip is housebroken and does well on a leash and in the car. In his foster home, he has a growing interest in the resident cats so will be best in a cat free home or with dog savvy cats. Pip gets along well with all of the other dogs in his foster home. He started out being rough with them but settled down well and plays nicely. He’s gotten a ton of exercise and has slimmed down which has also increased his energy level. He needs physical and mental stimulation or he will revert to destructive chewing. Like many young aussies, Pip does jump up on you when he gets excited but calms down quickly. He is a little unsure of strangers at first but warms up quickly and then loves the attention. Due to one outlier incident where he went after some elderly people’s shoes, Pip will only be adopted to an experienced home and with children over 14. This active, very sweet boy will make a great companion.If already approved contactAmy.
We rely on the generosity of our supporters to help
the hundreds of Australian Shepherds needing our assistance.
In 1992, three individuals doing private rescue were brought together by a common vision.
They hoped to gain the support of the (ASCA), which would enable them to create a network of volunteers who would be able to save their beloved Aussies on a much larger scale.
For those of you who shop on line, you are able to help raise money for ARPH through your purchases if you go through iGive.
