Pip is a 5 month old energetic puppy who has a lovely brindle face and legs and the rest of her coat is black with a white chest. She already weighs just over 6lbs so you should expect her to be a bigger chihuahua when she finishes growing. 

Pip has been vaccinated, microchipped and our vet has given her a clean bill of health. She is scheduled to be spayed at the end of the month after which time she will be ready for her furever home.

Because Pip is still a puppy and is quite vocal when left alone, she needs a home where she wouldn’t be alone for more than 3 or 4 hours.

Pip is very high energy and needs a fully fenced yard with an active owner or family who can keep up with her. She loves belly rubs and snuggles but she really loves to play play play!

This little clever little sweetheart loves everybody she meets and has lived with another dog in the past. She is suitable to be an only dog or to live with another young, small, playful dog companion. She hasn’t been tested with cats.

Pip is very agile and can leap on and off the couch in a single bound. She is tall enough to table surf so be careful what you leave out – everything is fair game to her!

Potty training is a work in progress  so patience and diligence is a must. She is pee pad trained for the most part but still has the occasional accident and seems to be confused when you take her outside. She is just learning how to walk on a leash.

Pip is currently teething and will chew anything if she isn’t redirected to her toys. Having some chew toys on hand is absolutely necessary. And she LOVES to play with her toys! Playing fetch is one of her favourite games!

She sleeps in her own little bed on the floor next to your bed and sleeps through the night most of the time. The only time she wakes you up is if she has to do her business. She is an example of “early to bed, early to rise” though!

Pip usually travels well. She gets harnessed into the back seat and, after a few minutes, lays down to snooze on shorter car trips. On longer car trips, she barks from time to time.

She is food motivated so training her is going reasonably well. She has learned her name and “sit” so far.  Her crate training is going well; she takes food and treats in her crate and she is happy to be in there so long as you are in the same room. 

If you meet the criteria for Pip’s furever home, please fill out an adoption application. You can purchase a sweater and/or blanket for her, or any of our other foster dogs.

Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our fosters by making a cash donation towards their care.
