I’m Tipper, a darling little puppy who is three months old and weighs about 6 pounds soaking wet. I have a soft white coat and apricot-tipped ears, which is why I’m called Tipper. My foster mom says that good things come in small packages and I’m an incredibly cute ‘package.’ (In fact Mom says I’m an ‘angel.’ I’m not sure what that means but she smiles when she says it!) Dad says I’m the sweetest little guy you could ever hope to meet. Speaking of meeting…I like to meet new people and especially love to meet other dogs. Give me an opportunity to play and I’m your guy.
I’m a little scrapper of a puppy with a sweet personality and a happy smile. I hop like a bunny when I’m excited (and that’s a lot!) and I listen intently to everything around me. You see I was born blind so I listen very carefully, lift my nose in the air and cock my head to the side. Mom calls that my ‘listening face’ and says it’s absolutely adorable. Dad says although I’m blind pup I have no idea that other dogs (or people) can see. I don’t act like anything is different or “wrong” with me.
Since I’m still a puppy, I’m learning new things every day. The most important thing I’ve learned so far is “careful”. I know when Mom says this I need to calm down a bit, or watch for a step etc.. Mom and Dad have been saying “You found me” when I come over and that makes me really excited. Mom has started trying “touch” as well and I’m learning very quickly since I’m smart and anxious to please!
I love to ride in the car (Mom says I’d prefer driving but since I’m not old enough I’m learning to sit nicely) and I love to be petted and have my belly rubbed. (I’m teaching Mom and Dad how to do that and they’re learning really well!)
My Ideal Home:
- Someone home most of the time
- An active family with older kids and a young furkid please! (I need a little bestie please!)
- A family willing to train and further socialize me
- A consistent and loving environment
- A single level home would be great
- Recent experience with a young, active pup a plus
- Previous experience as a doggy parent of young pups
Mom and Dad agree that I’m a great little guy with a lot of potential! (Aww, thanks Mom and Dad!) I would be happy in almost any family situation where there’s another young active furkid or two. If I sound like the kind of boy you are looking for, please fill out an application and ask for me.
So if you are looking for a sweetheart who is happy, adventurous, bouncy, curious, playful, and rambunctious then look no further. Just complete our application– and let’s get together.
See you soon.
Tipper the Terrific
