Volunteers call him "Terrific Tippy" and it is easy to see why. With his handsome markings and love of life, Tippy is a fun-loving guy who has a dream: to find a forever home where he can run and play...and love again.

Tippy used to have a beloved owner, who sadly, had a change in her family that caused her to move. She was unable to take Tippy with her, so she chose to surrender him to the shelter in hopes that he would find a brand new life with someone who would love him just as much. Tippy had lived with her day in and day out for his entire life, and he was suddenly in a noisy and chaotic shelter. Needless to say, Tippy was shocked and befuddled.

A little more than a year later, Tippy finds kennel life boring and stressful. Though the days have been long, he has not given up hope that the big day could be just around the corner: the day his new family comes and takes him home! Since his arrival, the staff and volunteers have been hard at work exercising Tippy's eager mind and lithe body. And...we found one thing that he warms up to instantly: toys! Stuffed toys, squeaky toys, any toys, he doesn't care. He just loves them so.

Tippy has also joined our Freedom Runners program, where volunteers take shelter dogs on car rides and for long walks with other shelter dogs. Tippy is doing very well! He is learning his manners and enjoys getting out and stretching his young legs.

With his beautiful creamy coat and handsome markings, Tippy would love to be someone's one-and-only, much-adored pet. Due to his excitement, we recommend that he not go to a home with young children or small, chasable animals. He'd probably think it was a big game. On the flip side, if you are looking for a running, walking, or hiking buddy, Tippy would be a great companion.

As you can see by his photographs, Tippy is all dressed up, ready and waiting for his forever family. He just knows they are out there somewhere. Is Tippy tugging at your heartstrings?
Don't deny the feeling. Come on down and have a meet and greet with the dear guy (he'd especially love it if you came with a squeaky toy). He's ready and waiting in Kennel 89.
