Dog Rescue Stories: Pippa and Her Former Good Human Used to Live on the Streets

Hi! I’m Pippa! I’m only a year old, but I’ve got a lot to tell! For my whole life, I lived on the street with a nice lady who tried her best to take care of me. My street smarts weren’t so keen, and somehow I ended up with a bit of my ear missing! Eventually, the nice lady knew I’d be better off with a safe family in a house with lots of food, so she gave me to  Wagging Tails Rescue, (run by some human heroes).
Once I got there, they realized I had some pups in my belly that needed a home of their own! I was a bit too young to be a mommy, so I’m glad my babies got adopted to nice human parents.
I stayed at my rescue for six whole months, and eventually lost hope. Sometimes it rains hardest before the sun comes out, because that’s when I met human Sister! We locked eyes at an adoption event, and she let me cuddle in her arms. Less than a week later, I had a forever Mom, Dad, and Sis!
I also have a whole house just for me, but I let the humans live there too, because it’s good to share. I’m learning to be a good girl, and Human Sis goes with me to training a few times a week. My favorite thing to do is sit at Starbucks with Human Sister, because people tell me I’m pretty and I get to scream at pigeons!
 P.S If you have any carrots, please send to my house… those are my favorite!

Human Sister went out of town and DIDN’T take me with her? Alright. Consider your bed already peed on.
