After Sadie passed away a few years ago, I wanted to get a second pup for Lucy. Just weeks later, I met Cooper who was abandoned at a local groomer. He was a beautiful dog and I instantly wanted to bring him home. When I talked to my husband about it, he thought it was too soon. Cooper was a one-year-old full-blooded Goldendoodle and was dropped off for grooming and left there. It wasn't the first time it has happened with this breed which is incredible. Who just leaves their "family" member behind?  Lucy has similar hair, and it does take a lot to maintain it. So, be prepared for many trips to the groomer if you can't take care of it yourself. Pippa is worth it!

Meet Pippa

If you've been searching for a special pup for a while, Pippa may fit the bill. She is currently being held at the Daviess County Animal Shelter. This is how the volunteers at the shelter describe Pippa.

"Pippa is available for adoption. She does have a couple of requests to make her the happiest dog in the world. Pippa is a young females doodle of some blend. She is about 8 months old and weighs 42 pounds. She is heartworm negative. There is no history about her available.

She will require an active home where she can get regular routine exercise. She is full of energy and her butt never stops wiggling.

She requires a home where the majority of her life will be spent with a human. She would do best where she isn't left at home alone for most of the day. She is obsessed with getting attention and interacting with humans. She is a high-energy dog and being in a crate or home all alone will be difficult for her. She does great with other dogs because to her they are nonexistent. She just wants to be with people. Not to say she wouldn't enjoy the company of another dog if no human is home when she can't be with her people."

To adopt Pippa you must live within 30 miles of Daviess County, and fill out an adoption application.

Pippa won't last long so apply today!

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.
