About me


Pippin is such a sweet natured girl and is always so happy to meet new people. She loves her walks and interaction with people and therefore can struggle being left for long periods of time on her own. She will need new owners who are around for the majority of the day, with her struggling to cope when she is on her own and her stress levels can increase. Outlets such as flyball and agility, hill walking/hiking, scent trailing or Canicross would be good for Pippin to be introduced to gradually in a new home. She is a very busy dog who loves to be on the go and to be out and about, but will also need a home that is quiet and predictable for her to help alleviate her stress levels in the transition to a new home. Pippin is the most incredibly affectionate girl and she loves to play and interact with humans and is good with other dogs. She will make an extremely rewarding addition to the life of someone who can meet her needs.

Does your loved one have room in their heart, but not in their home, for a pet of their own? Blue Cross sponsorship is the perfect present for animal lovers.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
