Hippi is a sweet and playful girl!  Hippi loves her humans, gentle with children, and good with dogs of all sizes.  She has a good temperament and lots of love to give.  She is doing well in her foster home and ready for her forever home.   Hippi started some leash training and is learning at a good pace.  She is crate-trained and doing well on her housetraining.  She rides well in the car and can wait patiently while her foster mom runs errands.  We are looking for a committed family to continue training and socialization to help her build confidence. 

HIPPI’s Rescue Story

Poor Hippi and her siblings were living as stray dogs in the mountain.  There were no food and shelter.  They must have been starving for a long time.  A kind rescuer was in the area feeding some stray dogs and heard them crying out of starvation.  The kind lady has a no kill shelter of over a hundred dogs.  She does not have space for another dog and does not have the resources to find them homes.

The kind lady reached out to an experienced rescue organization hoping they can help with some of her dogs.  The founder of the rescue organization appreciates all the work she has done and wanted to show some support.  She agreed to take them in and find them loving homes.

They adjusted well once they arrived at the founder’s home.  All her rescued dogs welcomed them to the pack.  They slept through the night peacefully in their warm beds.  The next day, they were all playing and really enjoy each other’s company.  They are socialized with dogs of all sizes.  

They had a thorough medical checkup.  They have been spayed & neutered, vaccinated, microchip, and passed negative on their blood tests.  Please give Hippi a forever home to grow up safely!
