Pippa ~ Approx 18 mth old Staffy x ~ $400
My name is Pippa (I’m still learning to respond to my name) and I’m approx 18 month old staffy X. My foster mum is convinced that I’m a cross with a Labrador because of my cute little ears and face! I’m brindle in colour like a staffy and am quite athletic looking.
I have a lot of love to give to the right people! I get really excited when I haven’t seen you in a few hours, or in the mornings when you get up, but I soon calm down and all I want is cuddles, and lots of them!!
I sleep outside with my foster brother and sister and like any other dog I love it when I get to sleep inside on mums bed, what a treat!!
I’m the most placid loyal girl you will ever meet, and once you have my trust I’ll follow you around the house and want to be near you all the time. My perfect home would have one other dog so I won’t get bored and destructive and go back to puppy tendencies, and also, so I have someone to play with and sleep with when you’re not around.
I’m a very smart girl, in the first week my foster mum had me, I learnt sit, drop, shake and beg. I even sit for my food and when you put my lead on me, but I’m not very good at ‘staying’ yet, so I would need someone who is going to spend quality time with me training me to be the best little girl I can be.
I’m pretty good on lead, but in a new space that’s exciting I just want to sniff, and I am quite strong so I would prefer a home without little ones that I could bowl over (although I do like little ones). I have a bit of an issue when I first meet men, I am very wary of them and take a fair bit of time to warm up to them, but I’m sure if you could pet me and show me you loved me then I would soon love you too.
I like meeting other dogs when out and about but I can be a little shy to begin with, especially if they aren’t a playful pup!
I love going in the car but I will want to be near you, with a paw on you, or at least touching you in some way, for reassurance you are still here with me!!
I love coming inside the house and if you tell me to go outside, I do know what you mean, but I am a cheeky little girl and refuse, I put my bum in the air and will do anything cute to not go outside, but if you go out then I sure will follow you! I’m starting to like playing with toys, I do like carrying my ball around, but I’m not very good at fetching yet! I think I would get much better with more practice!
I’m an all round sweetheart, I get excited like a puppy to see you but I will lay down with you anywhere and be very content!
I really hope to find my forever home soon, please come and meet me to see if we match!
I am toilet trained, desexed, microchipped and up to date with my vaccinations, flea and worm treatments.
