Homed

Homing Requirements: Pippa is lacking in confidence and skills. She needs an understanding family to engender these so she learns first to accept other dogs company around her outside. Pippa's home will be successful if her rehomers do not have high expectations and under those circumstance, meet her needs. She will win through as she gains understanding in a non threatening environment. Secure garden and exit management a must as with any terrier. Only pet status.

Her Story: Pippa was found stray in a large London Park. She was petrified in the pound and took a while to settle with us in a kennel environment. She is now welcoming of kennel staff and voluntary dog walkers. Still nervous of dogs. Now spayed, chipped and just being vax'd.

Advert: Pippa is out of kilter in rescue, a princess who is coping with a raucous kennel environment but learning to accept her lot and plead with her captures to give her a cuddle as they pass by! Pippa is housetrained and walks very well on the lead. She isn't nervous around traffic and travels well in the car. Unsure how she would be living with children but once she has settled in company her sunny nature shines through. With dogs she tries to keep up with the companionship then is a shrinking violet when they get too close, does little growls and learns to be comfortable.

Pippa is a pretty little Jack Russell with definite Westie parentage. She carries the cheeky terrier nature, its curiosity and character. She loves to exchange affection and despite being challenged under extreme duress in kennels she didn't actually bite anyone. She growls to communicate when she feels out of her depth.  Pippa is currently fostered with a dog experienced loving family who are keeping her progressing through her nerves. Pippa may always have nerves around other dogs and her forever family need to accept that and not wish for an 'all rounded dog' and accept and love her for being Pippa. She is a princess and needs understanding as she is.

Please visit Pippa(Carol) JRTxWestie DOB 08 Ashford Kent to find out more about her and follow her progress.

If you are interested in re-homing please complete Our on-line Homing Questionnaire so we can ensure our dogs are matched and will suit your circumstances/lifestyle.




Pippa's Thread is below: Watch her progress through our Rescue

Referral appeal: Pippa is a 2 - 3 year old Westie cross  Jack Russell? She is good with people but not fluent with other dogs or small furries. I have until Monday 25th or this girl will be PTS. I can get her spayed if that helps. Please cross post if anyone can take her please email me! Michelle

Another rescue is spaying, and first vaxing Pippa for us and we are collecting on Wednesday.

Pippa emerged out of her railway arch pound today nervous. She soon began to melt travelling in the front of the dogmobile with me and her wariness disappeared to little licks and by the time we were sailing around the M25 I was stroking her head and back and she was asking for more. She tolerated the other terriers entrying the van and continued with her 'pride position' as we headed up the A3 from East london via Gatwick to Hampshire..what a lovely day out then a lovely walk at the end.

Met Pippa yesterday and Lynne was working her magic on her. She is a gorgeous looking girl and I am sure once she has settled she will be a lovely addition to a family.

Crying or Very sad Met Pippa this morning - well only kind of. Poor little lamb was very frightened and doing the ' if I can't see you, you can't see me' thing in the corner of her bedroom  Crying or Very sad

I chatted to her for a while and moved her untouched breakfast inside for her. I also left some tasty treats but decided to leave it there for today.

Always so heartbreaking to see anyone like this. Lets hope with lots of kindness and love she settles.

When I went to walk dogs on Saturday my first concern was Pippa. She was completely hidden in her kennel with her bed looking empty. I opened the door and closed it behind me and called her name and little head appeared around the wall and she recognised me and came rushing over. Lead was clipped and we were out. Introduced her to Amy kennel manager and she made a fuss. We had a lovely walk with Murray and Barney she was so eager to catch them and then when they got near her space she growled in concern. After sometime I was concerned no wee; no parcel so we headed off by ourselves to get her to relax and she did and we had long wees and 3 parcels. I suspect this little one is so nervous in kennels she isn’t toileting properly so I was relieved she was relieved. I tried food as she hadn’t been eating in the pound very much nor in kennels. Dried food nope! so remember a cheese and onion quiche in the car tried and she delighted so Quiche for lunch today which isn’t ideal but once you get the system going, hunger begins to kick in overriding fear.

Yesterday I passed her kennel to collect Murray and she was screeching to get my attention, broke my heart, no time alas. Today arrived to deliver Murray and knew Pippa was my main concern as she hadn't been out since our walk on Saturday. She delighted as I approached her kennel and practically attached the lead to her harness herself such was her keenness. She spent an hour journeying with me as my front passenger and our relationship was very close friends with chit chatter.

Pippa was my first walk and she did the longest pee I have ever witnessed. She then immediately laid 2 parcels. She has been storing a lot. She will settle into the kennels. She was a joy to walk; we didn't meet any dogs on the walk but met Barney nose to nose in the car and Stevie and a few other dogs nose to nose through their kennel doors I wanted to carefully see her reaction and it was a very calm meeting. (She had fired off at a undeserving GSD when she was in the car and took me; his owner and the poor Shepherd by surprise!) Pippa will build friends and hopefully begin friendships with dogs too but currently a little wary when out on her lead.

Pippa was waiting for me at the front of her kennel today, which is great news :D She barked a bit and when I approached, her tail went right under her belly, so I said hello, sat down in front of her kennel, her tail went up and started wagging and we were friends Wink  
When I went into her kennel, the first thing she did was roll over for a tummy tickle, and I sat with her for a few minutes stroking and making a fuss of her. I don't think she's been a 'knee dog' as she made no attempt to jump up even though I gave her the opportunity.
Pippa was very excited about going out and was full of beans once out in the woods. She continually looked round at me and came to me when I called her.
A couple of large dogs walked past us and Pippa growled at them a bit, but forgot about them as soon as they'd gone.
A few photos, not brilliant but it's quite obvious that her confidence is growing. What a little sweetie  Smile

I was delighted to meet the lovely Pippa yesterday when she got back from her walk with Janet. She came straight up to me to say hello and have a stroke and a treat and then rolled over on the kitchen floor for a tummy rub - not a hint of hesitation, and very humbling. It's just so lovely to see this gorgeous little one growing in confidence and realising that she is safe and surrounded by people who just want the very best for her :D

"Oh! Pippa" - you are adorable and you're going to make someone such a wonderful companion...fingers crossed it will be very soon!

I met Pippa for the first time on Saturday - what a sweetheart!   She came out for a walk with me and Ralphie and was such a good girl.   She is full of fun and enjoyed a little game of chase the fir cone - what a delight she is.   When I met her in the kennels she was white and fluffy, I'm afraid that when I returned her she wasn't quite as white as she'd had a great time being a 'proper' dog, in and out of the puddles, even had a little swim in one of the bigger puddles  Rolling Eyes

Heather walked Pippa on Saturday and had a lovely, long walk with Ralphie, Roly, Zena and Michael.   A very good girl who is just getting used to walking with the other dogs and is settling in slowly but surely.   Fingers crossed she finds a home before long.

She is so beautiful, and a dead ringer for my Radar.  Gah, if only she could be rehomed or fostered with a 'brother'!  Hope she isn't here for long.    Surprised

She looks a lovely little girl who I am sure will come on leaps and bounds when in a home environment with some one to one tlc.  Hope she finds a home soon which will bring out her true loving character to match her beautiful exterier looks
