*THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT BEVERLY AT 360-609-8288 FOR MORE DETAILS*

Hi there! I’m Pippie, a sweet 9-year-old Chihuahua-mix. I am 100% lap-dog and my favorite thing is cuddling up in or next to one. If you like to have a relaxing evening in front of your TV I’m just the dog to enjoy it with you! Although I’m content to be a couch potato I LOVE my walks too, and will get very excited when I see my leash. I’m a little older, so longer walks/more strenuous activities will require a back-up mode of transport (small backpacks work well and I’ve enjoyed adventuring around in them!), but I do well on neighborhood walks and walks around the dog park. I’m fine with other pets but would do best in a home with older dogs/dogs who are very mellow. I don’t like other animals invading my personal space too much but will get used to any other pets in the home over time (including cats). Although I’ve never been aggressive or bitten I can get defensive if larger animals are overly-curious.

I’d do best in a home with a set routine, as I am special needs. I am diabetic and require 2 injections per day, after I’ve eaten breakfast and dinner. I’m also on a special prescription diet (although other prescription diets will work, as long as they are for diabetes control). I may also need glucose testing occasionally. Although I’m older, aside from my diabetes I’m a happy healthy girl! I can handle everyday obstacles like stairs and jumping up into your lap just fine, and I’ve kept my zest for life as I’ve gotten older! I am also spayed and up to date on shots. If you would like to adopt me, please contact Beverly at 360-609-8288 or scoggin7639@comcast.net
