Breed: Pitbull/Chihuahua x
Estimated Date of Birth : 09/29/2023
Have you ever seen a pittie chihuahua cross? Well that’s exactly what we think Pippa is! With her small stature (only 20lbs right now) and Chihuahua looking face and ears she’s the best of both worlds. We don’t think she’ll reach much over 30lbs as an adult dog and she will likely retain her adorable puppy “looks” forever. Add to that her fun loving and incredibly friendly personality and you’ve got the perfect compact package. She’s a little doll and seriously so enthusiastic about life it’s infectious! She loves everyone and is currently in foster care learning all about home life and puppy manners.
This sweet girl, like so many juvenile dogs, found herself at our city shelter after she’d been picked up as a stray. The sheer number of older puppies in our shelters is overwhelming right now. So many never make it out and we are doing our best to get them out when we have room. Both Pippa and her kennel mate were a few of the lucky ones who got their chance.
Pippa is happily absorbing everything foster life has to offer. She’s quickly picking up leash walking and positive social skills. She came in just a touch unsure but has blossomed into a vibrant happy puppy who loves life, humans and doggie friends. Her favorite parts of foster care include the unlimited pets and all the toys and playtime her little heart can handle. She’s ready to find her perfect home with a family that understands puppies need continued guidance and training to grow into amazing adult dogs. Pippa is well on her way and just needs to find an adopter who will complete the puppyhood journey and give her the forever she’s been waiting for.
Here’s what you need to know about adopting a cat or dog from Marley's Mutts:
Each adoptable pet will be introduced on Facebook
Each pet will have its own profile here on the website
All pets will be spayed or neutered
All pets will be micro-chipped and shots will be up-to-date
Each pet has their own application to complete—make sure you use the right one (linked from their bio)
It’s important to us that each pet goes not just to a great home but to the “right” home. Our foster parents work with each pet to get to know them and their needs.
We try hard to list all of the pertinent info about each pet on the site so you can choose the pet that will fit with your family/lifestyle. If you don’t see a specific pet on the site, he/she is not ready for adoption. Please be patient and wait until the bio is listed. We don’t decide on a “first come, first served” basis but rather on a “who’s the very best fit.” So, don’t panic.
It’s not a quick process. We receive dozens of applications for each pet so please be patient. If you’re shortlisted you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.
If selected to meet one of our pets and you currently have pets, you’ll be asked to do an in-person pet intro; we don’t do the long-distance adoption thing. If you live out of town, plan a fun road trip to meet the pet in person.
Don’t be discouraged if your application is not selected. Remember, we get a lot of them! Trust us, the best fit for you is coming.
If you’re lucky and you do adopt a super amazing pet from Marley’s Mutts, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us for training, medication, or behavior questions. We’re here for you, and your pet.
