My name is Playful Pippi – and I’m a sweet, bouncy and joyful Doodle of two who weighs 24 pounds and comes in a cute package! I have a sweet face to match my spirit and am a long-legged little colt for whom every day is a happy day. Did I mention that I have a curly white coat, big brown eyes and Mom says I always look like I’m smiling. (That’s because life is good!)
Every day is filled with new experiences. You see, before I became a FurKid I never had a home with people who paid attention to me or gave me any training. Now I live with a wonderful foster Mom and Dad who care for me and teach me all sorts of new things like how to “sit” and “stay” and “down” and tells me how smart I am! I have a warm bed and get all the food I need and have had a doggy foster sister to share my life with as well. Life as a FurKid is GREAT.
I’m housebroken and like to show how smart I am every day! I love to ride in the car, go on walks (walking is my happiest activity of the day!) and play. I’m great with people I know and am getting better at getting to know ‘strangers’. I don’t warm up right away so you will have to be patient with me in the beginning. But once I get to know you, it’s a different story. When Mom or Dad come home, for example, after being away I run up to them and bounce like a bunny, filled with excitement, then fling myself at them in wild abandon and wag my tail (which looks kind of like a bunny tail.) I’m just bursting with happiness!
After a long walk (1-2 miles) I arrive back home and do the Bichon Buzz (Zoomies) for a few minutes, showing my happiness, then I settle in on the couch next to my foster sister for a good night’s sleep. (I’d really like to sleep in the Big People’s bed all night but only get to do that in the morning; then I cuddle with Dad for all I’m worth.)
My very favorite thing in the world is to be with my people. Mom says I yearn for attention – and finds ways to get it. I would do best in an active, structured and loving home with need somebody to give me lots of love – and I will give it right back.
My Ideal Home:
- Someone home most of the time
- An active yet structured environment (a firm hand)
- Another playful dog around my age would be a plus (but I’m a bit selective as to who I like)
- No young children
- Adults or family with kids over 12
- Recent/current dog experience a MUST
- Willingness to work on training
- Rescue dog experience a plus
So if you are looking for a sweet, playful, lovable (but not needy) pup who is still a diamond in the rough, are willing to continue my training and understand that I am still working through a few quirks (for example I cannot be crated) then please ask for me.
Wiggles and kisses,
