We are still getting to know this big fluffy lovebug. She came in as a stray and was not claimed. We are looking for a foster-to-adopt home for her until she has her spay appointment. Pippa is very social and knows basic commands. Being a Husky she is also quite vocal if left alone, she just has to tell everyone she is soo sad to be alone. Pippa looooves belly rubs and will flop over to get some everytime. Pippa is not suitable to live with livestock as she does have some prey drive typical to her breed. If your heart reaches out to sweet Pippa and you are looking for a hiking buddy and an all around great companion then Pippa may be the right fit for you! Apply online with the link below. WHOOOOO!
Pippa ID 578011
