Pre-Screener Form

Pip came into the care center with a bite history having bitten the previous owner's girlfriend and having previously bitten their grandmother reportedly due to overstimulation. We have no information on the circumstances or severity of these bites and have no way of knowing what may trigger her to bite in the future. Pip shows social behavior toward handlers, choosing to sit by them, seeking attention, and leaning into petting however Pip is highly anxious at the care center, whining throughout interactions both when inside and outside. Due to Pip's bite history, we recommend an adult only home as well as placement with someone who is able to work on Pip's anxiety providing any necessary behavior modification using positive reinforcement, reward-based training.

A staff member writes: What a gorgeous girl! Pip is a few years old, but how we wish she could tell us her story. Why, you ask? Our Pip appears to always be "searching". A notably anxious girl, she does display interest in her human friends, but has spent some of her walk-times pacing, searching, but what for? These are times where I wish there were an easy way for us to have a conversation! Pip has not shown much affinity for toys and treats yet, which is often the first go-to when it comes to winning over a canine heart. For Pip, it will most certainly take time, and space to decompress outside of a shelter environment.

Head back to search more Boroughbreds just like Pip. All animals are microchipped, vaccinated, and spayed or neutered before adoption.
