Meet Pippin

Sponsorship Required

Pippin came from the pound absolutely terrified, his coat so very matted and he developed Kennel Cough within 24 hours of coming into care which required antibiotics and cough medicine. He then developed a stomach problem thought to be gastritis which required multiple courses of antibiotics and antacids plus a special diet to help overcome this problem and then as if this poor boy had not had enough of a bad run, he then developed a painful hot spot which required more antibiotics and treatment. Pippin has now come a long way since leaving the pound and with his stomach issues all cleared up he is now able to eat normally. We are hoping the worst is over for poor little Pippin and the future will be bright and healthy for him but he still has some progress to make as he is still wary of strangers but is getting better with each day. He needs a very caring and understanding family who are able to gently work with him and his fears. He gets very attached to his people, loves his foster carer, his daily walks and is becoming more confident as time goes on.

Pippin was adopted on 08 April 2013 after 6 months in foster care

Pippin has sadly had additional veterinary expenses due to illness or injury. We are seeking sponsorship for Pippin to help us cover some of those additional costs.
