An excellent or very attractive person or thing. A small hard seed in a fruit. On dice, pips are small dots on each face of a common six-sided die.
We were told that Pips originally lost his home due to a breed ban. He was given to a family with a child but they got rid of him shortly after. He eventually landed at the city pound. We can't believe someone would just abandon him like that. He is such a ham!

A little smaller than average for a male. This little guy is covered in cute freckles and has adorable raccoon patches on his eyes. And look at that pout! They dont come any cuter :-)
Pips is being a trouper in our program and loving life in foster care. He was a beloved family companion before rmdimng up unwanted and abandoned ended up unwanted, abandoned and heartbroken.
Pips is fostered in a home with adults only, and an older but outgoing female Pit Bull. There is a large fenced yard in his foster home with a 6' privacy fence.
From foster mom:
"Pips is an easy going, fun loving dog. He’s very down to earth inside the house and really enjoys spending his time outside as well. Pips is crated while foster parents are at work and sleeps in crate during the evening. Pips enjoys walks with foster sister Lola and is not reactive towards other dogs passing by. He is very interested in squirrels and likes chasing them as well."
Very friendly friendly little love-bug. This little guy is sooooooo easy to love. He's outgoing without being pushy or rambunctious. He's super friendly but not overly needy. He just wants to please and give you love.
Pips' energy level is medium, although in the summer heat he's being kind of lazy like most dogs. He might have occasional bouts of zoomies and he's always in for a fun game but dont underestimate his chill, couch potato side. For the most part, Pips will adjust his mood to his loved-ones. As long as he's loved, well cared for and part of the group, he's happy.
Behavior with people:
Very people-oriented. His eyes brighten up when someone talks to him and gives him attention. His whole body wags with his tail when he's making a new friend. Very social little guy, always happy to be with people.
Behavior with children:
We've been told he lived with a child but we dont know the age and dont have a way to verify the validity of this information. Though he is a tinny bit sensitive, we have no reason to believe he wouldn't do well in a home with respectful children. Foster parents informed us that he met children and was well behaved with the kids.
Behavior with other dogs:
Pips is currently living in a home with a 3yr old female pit mix. He loves playing with Lola and going on walks together. We think he'd love a home with a compatible big or little canine sister.
Behavior with other animals:
His previous family contacted us and informed us that he lived with a cat before and was good with it. We do not have a way to verify this information. He does appear to have a high prey drive towards small creatures like squirrels and rabbits.
Pips is easy and very responsive. No trouble at all and very well behaved. He might be a little anxious when home alone so a large and comfortable wide crate might be a good way to make him feel safe and sheltered when no one is with him.
Per his foster parents, Pips is house broken and crate trained. He knows basic commands like sit, wait, and is learning down.
Besides the fact that he's just the cutest little guy, Pips has wonderful disposition. As friendly as can be and full of charm. To meet him is to love him.
