Dog Story: This sweet gal is really stunning with the most beautiful markings and a delightful smile. Pippin is very active and the social butterfly of Brittanys! She can play for hours at the dog park as well ashuntbirds and critters whilezooming around the half-acre backyard. At the dog park, she is busy meeting new friends and playing with others. Pippin will run the yard at top speed bouncing up and around while carrying her Kong-on-a-rope. She cankeep it up until she stops for some water! Pippin embodies all the fun and boundless activity you wouldexpect in a young Britt. We have been attending obedience class forfive weeks and she hascome a long way! Pippin is learning sit, leave it ,and down as wellasher recall -which is important since she is a fast runner. She is a typical Brittany who needs a home familiar with the needs of young bird dogs.Pippin will thrive with structure and continued training. She is very treat-motivated and will work for treats in class. Pippin will do well with activities like agility, as a jogging partner, on long walks and hikes, and possibly hunting. She adores chasing a Frisbee and retrieving her Kong-on-a-rope. She has alsobeen on many hiking and fishing outings.Pippin is quite strong at 40 pounds and walks well on leash using a pinch collar or Gentle Leader. Pippin is crate trained and will bark to be let outside. She is still a puppyand will do well with older children. Because of her prey drive, she will definitely chase a cat. Pippin’s ideal home will be with an active Brittany-experienced family that has the time to work with her to ensure she gets plenty of exercise and consistent training as well aslots of love and affection. She needs a good-sized yard with a secure, six-foot or higher fence. Pippin iscurrent on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventive, and microchipped. This darling girl is waiting for her perfect home!If you are ready for an active and loving companion, please complete the online adoption application and mention Pippin-2335, then contact her foster family.
