Dog Story: Meet Pippin, a very handsome and playful boy just 8-9 months old! Pippin is a very sweet and happy Brittany with small stature (just 34 pounds right now), gorgeous amber eyes, and a beautiful long fluffy tail (uncommon for a Brittany!). Being a street dog once, Pippin has had to make himself a priority and thus he likes to be top dog. He is good with other dogs though, and will settle for less than the alpha position if he must! Now that the pecking order is sorted out, Pippin enjoys playful wrestling with our resident male Brittany just as much as he likes lounging and cuddling with him. Pippin would get along fine in a home with cats that are very tolerant of playful dogs and don’t mind an occassional game of chase! This little guy loves to be everywhere his people are and participate in family fun. His ideal home is one with a fenced yard where he can safely hunt lizards and frogs for short periods of time, but then be let back in the house to be with his people. He would love to lay on the couch with you and your other dog(s) if you have them, but doesn’t mind sleeping in his crate at night or during times when you are out of the house. Pippin enjoys a good chew toy for when he is lounging about, and is easily redirected to his own chew toys on those few occassions when he mistakenly grabs something that doesn’t belong to him. Pippin’s new family should work with him in a basic obedience class and be sure to walk him once every day. This activity and direction will help keep his mind busy and his body healthy, as well as properly channel that young Britt energy! Pippin will repay your love and direction with lots of sweetness and snuggles! Pippin was picked up in North Florida as a stray, and taken into ABR care in July 2010. He has been neutered and treated for parasites, and is heartworm negative. His days on the streets were a bit tough on him, and he has a scar on his ear (from a severe hot spot that is now healed) as well as a broken tailbone presumably from being struck by a car! Despite his struggle, he is still able to slightly wag that gorgeous long tail of his and gets around just fine (though he will always sit a little lopsided to protect his backside)! The vet doesn’t think he will get much larger, but this pint-sized package comes with a lot of fun and sweetness!
