Available for Adoption

Pippin - Washington

Meet Pippin! This little guy was pulled from a shelter in Los Angeles, and was flown to Oregon with generous donations from an admiring public. He is a B-Type Rattie and weighs in at a whopping 12 pounds. Pippin is as cute as he looks. He came here with no training, and is a work in progress. Within a week Pippin has learned "go potty", "wait", "off", and "out". It is amazing what he will do for some kibble/treats! Pippin did not know his name, but with a bit of work he knows his name and “here”. He is also learning what is his to chew on and what he is to leave alone - as long as you stay on top of it. Pippin does tend to get possessive with his toys, and will nip at young children who try to take them. We would recommend that he goes to a home with children age 10 and older. Pippin was also a bit food possessive, but with a week of constant work he is doing wonderful about his food bowl. A home with a fenced yard is a must, and he does want to try leave with you when the door is open. Pip's fostermom would prefer a local adoption, to help Pippin adjust to his new home. To see more great pix of Pippin please see If you're that special someone who can continue his training at home, please fill out an application. Pippin is a great guy - fun to watch play by himself, and so full of life! With some easy guidance you will find yourself with an awesome companion.
