05-04-2019 Pippa is a 6 year old female ex breeding Bichon. Pippa is incredibly nervous and unsure of the world.  If she see us she will run away and hide so she will need an adult only home with experience to help her work through her fears. To help Pippa overcome her fears we will start to gain her trust by just sitting in her kennel quietly talking to her so she can see we are not all bad. Once we can see her confidence start to grow we will introduce new things to her.  She is, with time, love and patience, going to become a a really faithful little dog who will love you forever.

Pippa is a very sweet girl who gets on well with her two kennel friends (bichon and cairn x). She is a curious girl and will let you walk over and give her some fuss but she still has a little nervous side. She's learning to walk on a harness and lead, so far she's doing well in her kennel and yard but haven't quite got out to the big wide world just yet but I don't think it will be too long!

Pippa has come on since joining us in April, but is still a little nervous when you approach her. However if you take your time she will come to you and let you pick her up, stroke her and take a treat from you. She is a very friendly girl who gets on with all her kennel. She is still learning to walk on a harness, so continuing this in her forever home will help. At this stage she will need another dog in the forever home to help her settle and comfort her as well as teaching her how to live in a home teaching her all about house training! Come and meet her, you will fall in love with her!

Pippa is still patiently waiting for her forever home with us and to finally say goodbye to kennel life. She really is the type of dog that you will fall in love with the more time you spend with her. Seeing her briefly while visiting MT to look at the dogs we have her will not do her any justice, it's only when you get to know her you learn what a really sweet girl she is.
It feels like Pippa has been her longer than she actually has but at least her confidence is building all the time, ready for that special person or family who can be her new life. In the video you can see Pippa with the red collar and her kennel buddy Indigo who are never far apart. They have looked after each other since coming here but have both sadly been overlooked by the high number of Bichons we have come into us.
Pippa loves a cwtch (cuddle) when you pick her up and will let you stroke her for a session of fuss. She is very calm but would still need another dog at home to help her settle in. Please consider her as she won't disappoint you.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

The adoption fee for an adult dog (6 months and over) is £220 and for a puppy is £250, However if the dog has a passport you will be given this when you adopt and we ask for a further £20 to help us buy a passport for another dog. You will find a break down of what the adoption fee covers under our Adoption Procedures (see link below) If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt.
