THIS IS PIPPIN….and he is the apple of our eyes…even if he only has one!  This sweet as pie, 2 yr old, 14 lb, golden boy has the softest coat ever!  He came from South LA Shelter with an eye that needed to be removed.  He doesn’t look great right now, but he has such a wonderful temperament and when his hair grows back you won’t even notice he has an eye missing!  We’re not sure what happened to him, but it did not put a damper on his happy go lucky attitude!  He is a little shy at first…but then he’s a wild child!  Pippin definitely needs another dog to play with.  He has the cutest bark and never uses it until he wants something or it’s food time, and then he lets you know how hungry he is!  He is a GREAT eater!  One thing we must warn you of…he is a toy monger.  Every single toy in the doggie playroom, even those under the futon, has been pulled out and played with!  And….he does not put them back in their place when he is finished! Like a child, he makes a mess!  But he will fetch!  Pippin would be great in a family with another dog and children over 8 yrs old.  He is curious and happy, will need a refresher course on bathroom skills but is smart and wants to please. Could you live with a sweetheart of a pup who just wants to have fun…and love you?  He’s waiting!!
