Pipsqueak arrived in our care from a local pound we work closely with.  She was incredibly worried when she first arrived and would hide and shake in her kennel. 

It will take Pipsqueak time to trust people, so it’s important to not put pressure on her to interact with you – let her do things in her own time.  However, her character and confidence is growing daily, so we are looking for someone who will continue to nurture her in the same positive way we have done.

Pipsqueak mixes well with other dogs with careful introductions and would benefit from living with an older, confident dog that can be a good role model.  It’s easy with her size to pick her up and carry her everywhere, but she is a dog and needs to be treated as such and trained using only positive reinforcement training methods.

Pipsqueak will need to be enrolled into training classes, once she has settled into her new home.  It’s important that Pipsqueak is exposed gradually to new experiences otherwise she will start to shut down.

We have placed a crate in her kennel to give her a safe place to retreat too if she becomes worried.  This is something that new owners should consider using in the home too. 

Pipsqueak will require all basic training, including toilet training. 

Her ideal home would be a very quiet home, with one or two people and minimal visitors.

Can you offer this lovely girl a loving and permanent new home?
