20/08/17 – Pip has been adopted having been spotted on the Oldies Club website!
Pip is a 9 to 10 year old, wire-haired Jack Russell Terrier (possibly cross) who’s looking for a new lap to call her own with the help of Rovers Dog Rescue. She’s in foster care in Essex with other dogs who she gets along with. She has previously lived with a cat but she is very much a terrier so any future feline housemates would have to be confident and they’d need very careful introductions! Sensible children age 10 or over should be fine for her.
Pip is an affectionate girl and really loves company. She’d like to be with someone most of the day. Indoors, she’s quiet, well behaved and always ready for a lap cuddle!
Pip needs a secure garden… secure by terrier standards that is, so basically Alcatraz! Outdoors, all her terrier instincts come to the surface. You certainly won’t be troubled by squirrels on your bird feeders.
She can be pretty feisty when meeting new dogs on walks. Dogs she lives with are fine, being valued members of the pack. It’s those suspicious, upstart imposters she has to keep at bay. You can’t trust ’em you know! Luckily she’s small enough that with an experienced dog owner, it’s not an ordeal. Just part of her well developed character.
Pip thought she’d found her forever home recently but was returned because she couldn’t cope with a visiting 2 year old grandchild. This is odd because in her original home she was great with children of all ages.
Perhaps it was the stress and uncertainty of a new home combined with the terrifying, rampaging toddler which was too much for her. Or, maybe she just needs a quieter pace of life these days… with lots of lap time!
Pip is spayed and has no known health needs. If you want to find out more about her please contact Rovers Dog Rescue as follows:
