****************UPDATE 2/10/20 **************** 

Pippi's foster mom reports that although she is listed as 8 y/o, she can be quite active for a senior. She is very sweet and gets along well with the foster mom's dogs. She loves to go for walks. She recently had surgery to be spayed, had two mammary tumors removed and her dental cleaning done which required two extractions. She is healed nicely and eats kibble with no problems. She is house trained, kennel trained and rides in the car well. She has been seen by the eye doctor who indicated that there is nothing that can be done for the mature cataract in her right eye. Even with the cataracts, she has no trouble getting around in fact she chases squirrels in the back yard. She would make a wonderful dog for a senior *************************

This beautiful girl was pulled from the Harris County Animal Shelter in Houston, TX.

She has been neglected her whole life.  So severe, she suffers from a chronic raging skin infection in her lumbar, and hind end due to flea dermatitis.  She is on strong antibiotics and medicated baths daily.

She will be examined by an eye specialist to determine if we can improve her vision
