Hi! My Name Is Pip

We're happy to tell you that Pip has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.

Pip is one of the most frenchie frenchies that ever did frenchie.  He arrived at ABR and was rushed straight into emergency surgery to remove an alarming amount of bladder and urethral stones.  And even though he's supposed to stay calm through recovery, he still wants to play, climb to the highest places he can in the house, and jump up on the couch to perch on his human's shoulder for a nap.  He's got a hilarious, sometimes bossy, personality that we just love!  Especially because he also has a very sensitive side - loving snuggles and caring for his people when they don't feel well. 

Pip had a hard time with the 'slow intros' we usually do in foster homes, because he wanted so badly to be with other dogs.  He's currently living with two other playful frenchies in his foster home and really enjoys wrestling, napping, and sharing toys with them.  His medical foster shared that he was not the best at respecting calmer dogs' space, so we think likeminded dog friends are best for Pip in a forever home.  Pip is also living with a dog-savvy cat, and for the most part, is respectful of him.  If he sees them running around, he'll consider chasing, but foster mom has been working with him on redirecting his attention and can show his forever family how to keep this up.  Pip is not currently living with kids, but we think older kids are best, given that he is still very much a puppy working on manners.
