Terrific Tippy!

Meet Tippy, a boisterous young lad who is ready for some lovin'. Tippy's owner surrendered him here in April because of a change in her family situation that resulted in her moving. Tippy had lived with her day in and day out for his entire life. The poor guy was so confused why he was here at the shelter!

The staff has been actively working with Tippy to help teach him that the shelter is a safe space. And...we found the key to his heart: 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. And 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 in someone's cozy home for the winter. 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.

If you're looking for a running buddy who'd love to have a safe home again, then come on down and check out Tippy. He's ready and waiting for a squeaky toy and a treat in Kennel 89.

P.S.- Did we mention that Tippy is the Kicker for Team Dogs for our Fantasty "Fur"ball adoption promotion? He sure is! Adopt Tippy by Sunday, November 12 and Team Dogs (versus Team Cats) will receive 5 points! The team with the most points by November 12 wins. (And Tippy and you will truly win, for you will have each other.)
