Pippa came to SSC due to a change in her owner’s circumstances. 
Pippa is the sweetest little girl! She’s very friendly and affectionate with everyone she meets and loves having as much attention as possible. She can get very giddy and excited and will do the cutest spins! 
Pippa has injured her cruciate ligament and after an X-ray, it’s been confirmed that she’ll need an operation to repair the damage (SSC will cover the costs for this).  
This means we’ve had to try and keep Pippa as calm as possible and restrict her exercise as much as possible. 
Unfortunately, Pippa has an old injury to her back leg which means she’s been on restricted walks since she arrived. 
However, on her short walks, she enjoys a good sniff and walks well on the lead. She’s not overly keen on a harness but she’s slowly getting used to this. 
Pippa travels well and settles down quickly both in the car and the rescue’s van. 
All the staff at our vets love Pippa and only have good things to say about her. She’s well-behaved in the waiting room and during an examination. She’s not keen on having blood taken but doesn’t get grumpy, just rolls around like a little crocodile! 
Health issues: 
Pippa has had a full examination and routine blood tests and, aside from her cruciate injury, has been given a clean bill of health. 
Ideal home: 
Pippa needs someone who can commit the time to help her recover. She’ll need time to settle in her new home before her operation, along with restricted exercise (she’s being kept comfortable with meds at the moment). After her operation, she’ll need 4-6 weeks crate rest, followed by a period of rehab before she fully recovers. 
She needs a calm and stable environment – if she gets excited or stressed, she can get quite bouncy and giddy, this could set her recovery back. 
Pippa needs a pet-free home – she’s lived with a dog in the past and wasn’t happy. 
She can live with teenagers but no younger children as she’s very bouncy, plus she’ll need a calm environment to aid her recovery. 
Standard information: 
Pippa is spayed, microchipped and has started her vaccinations. We will cover the cost of her second vaccination and pay for her cruciate operation. She is currently in kennels in Stoke on Trent, but she can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet her at least twice where she is now. 
There is a non-refundable adoption donation of £120 for Pippa and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
