LOVE this girl! Best companion ever :)
Tippy is a beautiful tiny Pom/Chi mix female that was sadly found as a stray. Around 1-2 years old, about 5.5 lbs. Apparently she was hit by a car and taken to the shelter :( she is doing much better and about ready to join a family! Great with all, walks on a leash, VERY sweet, will follow you around all day, will never stray, loves sleeping in the bed, being held and cuddled, playful, not a barker, gets along with other dogs, but would prefer to be that special child. Her head does "tip" still and occasionally will go off balance when being put down. We don't know in time if her "tip" will improve or not. She eats, sleeps, plays, runs all normal. :) Could make ideal companion to a single, couple, active senior or family with respectful children. Sweet and gentle, she just wants to be loved and safe. Tippy is available to a adopter that she can spend most of the day with. She is a perfect lap companion and will be happiest being able to love her person all day. Adoption donation $350, includes her spay, rabies, dhpp vaccine, bordatella vaccine, microchip, worming, frontline, heartworm test, heartgard,
**Appointments are available most days, dogs are held for SAME-DAY appointments only. She is fostered in Vacaville, we do not transport or deliver dogs. All potential adopters must travel to vacaville to meet and potentially adopt dog.

We never say a dog is housebroken, a new routine, environment, food, all lends itself very well to having a accident in the home. Please take any new dog regardless of age and act as if they are not housebroken.
Barking/Digging: Any dog can be or become a barker, or digger if the behavior is allowed and not corrected. A dog can act one way in one home and a completely different way in another.
Whining/Separation Anxiety: The first few days in a new home, a adopted dog can become VERY upset, anxious and vocal. Every home they go into, there is a adjustment period that will need to be understood. We suggest "test"runs when you leave the dog alone. Make is short segments first and increase the time. This way the dog knows you are always coming back. Make sure they have something to keep themselves occupied with while you are away. Back round music or TV can also help. There is tons of suggestions online on how to ease your new family member into your home.
BITING: Please do not EVER put your face in a newly adopted dogs face or take food/toys our of their mouth or position. This is the surest and fastest way to get bit. Especially children.
Adopting a dog takes time, patience and a commitment from his/hers new family, please be prepared for ALL the ups and downs when bringing home a wonderful dog in need. :)
